27 Graves, Robert King Jesus.
NY Creative Age. 1946. Hardcover in DJ. Good/Fair, some wear and tears. Octavo 
424 pp

"Robert Graves's object in writing this startlingly original book has been to suggest that the scholars have been too summary in their verdict, too ready to dismiss the Bethlehem massacre, the Temptation and other puzzling incidents in the life of Jesus on the assumption that the early Christians were either credulous fools or wilful liars."

Highly controversial historical novel that took on Jesus's history far before the Da Vinci Code and with alot more scholarship.

Heritage Press 1963 Hardcover in slipcase. Good Good Octavo 
384 pp Illus by Leslie Saalburg."Lambert Strether is dispatched to Paris by the widowed Mrs. Newsome--his fiancée--to bring back her son Chadwick. It is rumored that Chad has fallen under the spell of a Frenchwoman of dubious reputation, and his mother wants him to return to take over the running of the Newsome Mills, in Massachusetts. Once in Paris, Strether undergoes a personality change. Not only does he advise Chad to remain there with his lover--the charming Mme. de Vionnet--but he comes perilously close to succumbing to the city's magic himself. The ending is both unexpected and deeply ironic; Strether's situation illustrates James's lifelong preoccupation with the differences in culture, morality, and the concept of the good life in a city like Paris vs. a New England mill town. It is, of course, no secret where the author's sympathies lie. As the aging Strether expresses it in a word of advice to a younger character: "Live all you can....Don't miss things out of stupidity. Live!" James considered this novel to be his masterpiece, and--despite its extreme length, slowness, and quiet absence of action or real suspense--critical opinion generally agrees with him."

292 pp

"By rumor and official dispatch, news had come to Shrewsbury of a terrible betrayal. Philip FitzRobert, one of the Empress Maud's greatest champions, had turned coat, imprisoning thirty knights and squires who held true to the empress. The lucky ones had kin who could afford the dear price for their freedom; the others had to rot in captivity. Among the missing and unclaimed was Olivier de Bretagne, an exceptional knight whose mother had been a woman of the East - and whose sire, unknown to Olivier himself, was Brother Cadfael. It had happened during the Crusades, years before Cadfael had become a monk. Indeed, Cadfael did not know he had a son until by chance he met Olivier as a young man. But the bond is strong, and it is the one claim that can make Cadfael break his vows and drive him from his cloister, risking the religious way of life he so loves. A father first and a brother second, the monk travels to Coventry, where a great conference holds faint hope of a settled peace and clues to his son's whereabouts."
