Gabriel Oak's Library

Thomas Hardy (1840-1928), Far from the Madding Crowd, chapter VIII:
The Young Man's Best Companion, The Farrier's Sure Guide, The Veterinary Surgeon, Paradise Lost, The Pilgrim's Progress, Robinson Crusoe, Ash's Dictionary, and Walkingame's Arithmetic, constituted his library; and though a limited series, it was one from which he had acquired more sound information by diligent perusal than many a man of opportunities has done from a furlong of laden shelves.

John Frederick Peto (1854-1907), Books
