The war in eastern Europe by John Reed( Book )
21 editions published between 1916 and 1999 in English and Spanish and held by 449 libraries worldwide
Reed wrote The War in Eastern Europe as an eyewitness account of "how the different peoples [affected by the war] live; their environment, tradition, and the revealing things they do and say ... Robinson and I have simply tried to give our impressions of human beings as we found them in the countries of Eastern Europe, from April to October, 1915." Reed and Robinson traveled through Serbia, Bucovina (currently Romania and Ukraine), Galicia (currently Poland and Ukraine), Poland, Romania, Russia, and Turkey. Among other events, the book describes the 1915 typhus epidemic in Serbia and the Russian retreat from Poland to Galicia. Conversations with local people, soldiers, officers, and government officials are remembered for each nation, as well as aspects of life for local people (food, their daily concerns, their opinions on the war, etc)

Leaves of grass by Walt Whitman( Book )
5 editions published between 1944 and 1946 in English and held by 192 libraries worldwide
Abraham Lincoln read it with approval, but Emily Dickinson described its bold language and themes as "disgraceful." Ralph Waldo Emerson found it "the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet produced." Published at the author's expense on July 4, 1855, Leaves of Grass inaugurated a new voice and style into American letters and gave expression to an optimistic, bombastic vision that took the nation as its subject. Unlike many other editions of Leaves of Grass, which reproduce various short, early versions, this Modern Library Paperback Classics "Death-bed" edition presents everything Whitman wrote in its final form, and includes newly commissioned notes. From the Trade Paperback edition
The Brothers Karamazov : the Constance Garnett translation by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

Spoon River anthology by Edgar Lee Masters( Book )
6 editions published between 1942 and 1992 in English and held by 130 libraries worldwide
One of the most striking and original achievements in American poetry is now available in a remarkable edition that comprehends the poet and his book in an entirely new way. This edition of Spoon River Anthology probes the social background of the smalltown world that Edgar Lee Masters loved and hated--and finally transmuted into powerful literary art. Extensive annotations identify the people whose lives inspired the 243 poetic accounts of frustration, violence, struggle, and triumph that once shocked American readers. The most extraordinary feature of this edition is the extensive introduction that provides the key to this misunderstood American classic. The book's relationship to Whitman is clearly established, and the important influences of Browning, Goethe, Spinoza, and others are revealed for the first time. John Hallwas's approach combines cultural, biographical, philosophical, psychoanalytic, mythic, and symbolic insights--and concludes with a stunning reassessment of "Our New Poet." The annotated Spoon River Anthology supersedes 75 years of largely misdirected critical commentary. It will send a new generation of readers back to this surprisingly complex book that probes so deeply into the American consciousness--and will send Masters back into our national anthologies
