1.   Searchfield, Emlie, and Sibella B. Edgcome, Illustrated by: Gordon Browne
CLAIMED AT LAST; and ROY'S REWARD
 
Publisher: Cassell and Company London
Three-quarter leather with marbled paper over boards, beautifully marbled endpapers. ix + 129 + [12] pages. Two stories that appeared orignally in Little Folks Magazine, by two noted Victorian authors. 4 full-page engravings by Gordon Browne. Cover are worn at edges. Chip from spine head. Paper title label appears a later addition (titles in ink) and is also chipped. The book has been used, though not abused. A lovely Reward of Merit is pasted to the inside front cover, a presentation to "John Miller for Regularity, Xmas 1891, Fellows St. School, John D. Gulliver." Hmmm. I eat prunes for regularity but my rewards are private. COLL 2192 First Hardcover Edition No Dust Jacket as Issued Hard Cover Good Condition 12mo - over 6" - 7" Tall Collectible Book

2.   Kellogg, Rev. Elijah
HARDSCRABBLE of ELM ISLAND (ELM ISLAND STORIES)
 
Publisher: Lee & Shepard, 1871 Boston: 1871
Hardcover, 12mo, green cloth stamped in gilt. 220 pp, illustrated with B&W etchings. A "boy's story" of enterprise. Three young men set out to build a ship. They must make their own smithing tools, weave cloth for the sails, spend a winter trapping for furs to pay for the venture. Typically sweet nineteenth-century novel. The book is Good only, with cover and edgewear; some wear-through at tips and spine ends. A wrinkled spot on back board. Some pencil sketches and penmanship on blank endpape rs. Name in ink on front pastedown (which lists other series and titles), and recto of frontis. Some age spots and foxing, mostly in margins. Clearly a book that was read and enjoyed, not one that sat on the shelf ignored. It has lots of "character. " Hard Cover Good 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall
