  1. The works of Thomas Paine would make a fine companion to the works of Edmund Burke.

  2. I would like to suggest Thomas Henry Huxley and Alfred Russel Wallace for future publication by Delphi. Both of them were giants of science but also formidable writers. One could make the case that Huxley is one of the finest writers ever in English. Thanks!

  3. Very happy to see E. Phillips Oppenheim! Looking forward to this one!

  4. For future Delphi Series I would like to suggest the works of the following writers: Sir Thomas Browne, Robert Burton, Izaak Walton, John Lily, Francis Bacon, Thomas Hobbes; Charles Lamb, John Henry Newman, John Stuart Mill, Walter Horatio Pater.

  5. Andersen! Great! More european tales to come? What about the brothers Grimm?!

  6. The novels of Charles Hamilton Aide would be a joy to read. Also COMPLETE works of M.E. Braddon and Ellen Wood would be a perfect addition.

  7. T. E ]Lawrence (“Lawrence of Arabia”) seems an obvious choice, with some of the earlier biographies of him included in your complete works. He died in 1937.

    What about James Elroy Flecker? A lot of people must remember the poetry and the two plays.

    John Kendrick Bangs was a very popular American satirist and fantasy author, who died in 1922. The Pursuit of the Houseboat is still great fun to read. Nearly all his books are available from Project Gutenberg, but a lot of your readers would surely prefer to get them all in a single Complete Works download.

  8. Henryk Sienkiewicz would be a great addition in the future. His historical fiction is thrilling!

  9. I would like to see the following authors added to your burgeoning library: A. Merritt, Marie Corelli, Theodore Fontane, The Goncourt Brothers, Arthur Schopenhauer, Theodore Dreiser, W. Somerset Maugham (I realize that in most countries these last two are still under copyright, but after your ability to produce the Hemingway volume, I have hopes), Edward Lucas White and Otis Adelbert Kline. And, I agree with Mike. A volume of Henryk Sienkiewicz would be terrific.

  10. I would like to see the works of The poet James Elroy Flecker in a future series.

  11. Please add the following writers – all of them great English prose stylists and some of their works are hard to find elsewhere – to Delphi’s future series: Sir Thomas Browne, Robert Burton, Izaak Walton, John Lily, Francis Bacon, Thomas Hobbes; Joseph Addison and Richard Steele; Leigh Hunt, Charles Lamb; John Henry Newman, John Stuart Mill, Walter Horatio Pater, Thomas Henry Huxley.

  12. please add Oliver Onions, James Branch Cabell and A. Merritt to your listing.
    all would be wonderful additions

  13. It would be great to get a complete package of the volumes of Raphael Holinshed’s Chronicles, acting as a great companion to the Renaissance texts throughout the series.

  14. Brothers Grimm would be nice, as would John Muir if they are out of copyright

  15. What about Richard Brinsley Sheridan?

  16. and William Godwin?

  17. Charles Garvice
    Nat Gould
    Florence Barclay
    Edith Dell

  18. I second Henryk Sienkiewicz.
    And how about a few more of the great Historians?
    Francis Parkman
    John Motley
    William S Prescott
    Henry Adams.

  19. Vernon Lee and Lord Dunsany, please.
