25 books from 1910 and 1860

A few months back I did a poll on books published in 1959, 1909, 1859, 1809, 1759, 1609 and 1509. For the publications to be commemorated in 2010, I found the pickings much slimmer for the older set of anniversaries, but on the other hand 1960 appears to have been a rather good year (indeed, deserving a poll of its own). Here are the top books from 1910 and 1860 (again ranked by LibraryThing popularity).

Which of these 16 books first published in 1910 have you read?

(Yes, I know that When the Sleeper Wakes was originally serialised in 1899, but I am assured that The Sleeper Wakes of 1910 is very different.)

I'm in the middle of Framley Parsonage at the moment.

The only reason I read Framley Parsonage was to see if it really was anything like Tooth and Claw.

I may have read the Oz one as well, but I recall that I didn't like that series and didn't get very far.

I read 'First Love ' - in English as part of a University course on 19th century short stories

I've only read Phantom of the Opera, although I fully plan on getting round to the Woman in White because I enjoyed the Moonstone a lot.

IMHO Woman in White is far, far better than The Moonstone, and definitely worth the extra effort.
