The bread-winners : a social study by John Hay ( Book )
49 editions published between 1883 and 2011 in English and French and held by 1,443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This 1883 novel about the struggle between labor and industry focuses on the 1877 railway strike. Its plot comes down squarely in favor of the latter—causing a sensation upon its anonymous publication. Many names were advanced as possible authors, but circumstantial evidence, as well as handwriting analysis, conclusively pointed to Hay, who until his death steadfastly denied authorship
Abraham Lincoln the observations of John G. Nicolay and John Hay by Michael Burlingame ( )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Democracy an American novel by Henry Adams ( Book )
29 editions published between 1880 and 1970 in English and French and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An immediate bestseller upon its publication in 1880, the anonymously penned Democracy prompted widespread speculation and guessing games as to its author's identity. It is the story of Mrs. Lightfoot Lee, a society widow, and Silas Ratcliffe, the most influential member of the Senate, who, throughout the novel, pursues Mrs. Lee while at the same time battling her for power. Set in Washington in the 1870s, Democracy presents a scathing and incisive look at the intricate inner workings of politics and corruption that remains relevant today
