Herman Melville's Moby-Dick was first published in London, under the title The Whale (1851)

JANE AUSTEN ON BASEBALL VS. BOOKS was not very wonderful that Catherine, who had by nature nothing heroic about her, should prefer cricket, baseball, riding on horseback, and running about the country at the age of fourteen, to books--or at least books of information--for they were all story and no reflection, she had never any objection to books at all.

---Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey, 1818

He that falls in love with Himself, will have no Rivals.
Benjamin Franklin (1706-90)
