Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "..Our treasure is the gold in the gleam of the human mind - the pearls of human thought - rare, precious gold and translucent pearls, over which the spirit floods in a revealing wonder-glow. Where is this treasure to be found? In far-away and strange places - wherever men and women and children dream over evening fires, listening to stories of the olden days. In such a search we visit the ancient red men of our own fair land; then we plunge far down into the fever-laden jungles of South America and listen to savages sitting about smoking fires. We wander with the bushmen of Australia across the sun-baked plains. We linger for a time among the savage tribes of Africa; we go north across the Sahara into the lands of the Arabs and follow the slim trail and the tinkle of the camel bells. We cross over into the dry country about the Dead Sea where the very winds whisper of the glory of a golden hour.." vii + 352 pages. Book is in GOOD or better condition.

Colonel Thorndyke's Secret.

Publisher: The Mershon Company, Rahway & NY [c1901].
"'Colonel Thorndyke's Secret' is a story so far out of the ordinary that it will not be inappropriate to speak a few words regarding the tale... The plot of the story hinges upon the possession of a valuable bracelet of diamonds, stolen from a Hindoo idol by a British soldier in India. This bracelet falls into the possession of Colonel Thorndyke... The secret concerning the bracelet is told to the Colonel's brother, a country squire, and the treasure is left to younger members of the Thorndyke family. As is well known to-day, the theft of anything from a Hindoo temple is considered an extraordinary crime in India, and when this occurs it becomes a religious duty for one or more persons to hunt down the thief and bring back the property taken from the heathen god. The members of the Thorndyke family soon learn that they are being watched. ...They would give the bracelet up, but do not know where it is hidden... In this quandary the young hero of the tale rises to the occasion and determines to join the London police force and become a detective, with the hope of ultimately clearing up the mystery. Thrilling adventures of a most unusual kind follow... The bracelet and other jewelry are unearthed, and it is decided to take the bracelet to Amsterdam... But the carrying of the bracelet is both difficult and dangerous. How the mission is brought to a conclusion, and what part the Lascars played in the final adventure, will be found in the pages that follow. ...The present story is of peculiar value as giving a good insight into country and town life in England over a hundred years ago, when railways and telegraph lines were unknown and when the 'knights of the road' were apt to hold up any stagecoach... It also gives a truthful picture of the dark and underhanded work accomplished at times by those of East Indian blood, especially when on what they consider a religious mission."

Wood, 19 cm.; grey cloth boards decorated in mustard & black, all edges grey; pages darkened; spine & rear cover waterstained with internal gutter stain diminishing to p. 14, minor scuffing & edgewear; owner's red-ink stamp inside front cover; good. 34111.

In Freedom's Cause: A Story of Wallace and Bruce.

Publisher: NY, Worthington Co. [191-?].
"There are few figures in history who have individually exercised so great an influence upon events as William Wallace and Robert Bruce. It was to the extraordinary personal courage, indomitable perseverance, and immense energy of these two men that Scotland owed her freedom from English domination. ...Mr. W. Burns... in his masterly and exhaustive work, 'The Scottish War of Independence'... has displayed Wallace as he was, a high-minded and noble patriot. While consulting other writers, especially those who wrote at the time of or but shortly after the events they record, I have for the most part followed Burns in all the historical portions of the narrative." Contents include Glen Cairn; Sir William Wallace; The Capture of Lanark; The Barns of Ayr; The Cave in the Pentlands; The Battle of Sterling Bridge; The Battle of Falkirk; Robert the Bruce; The Battle of Methven; The Castle of Dunstaffnage; Colonsay; A Mission to Ireland; The Heiress of the Kerrs; The Siege of Aberfilly; The Escape from Berwick; Edinburgh; Bannockburn. 378 p., 12 plates incl. front., 19 cm.; dark green cloth boards decorated in red, black, gold; corners & spine ends worn, chipped, covers scuffed, red-ink owner's stamp inside front cover; good+. Printed on noticeably better paper than the reprints of Donohue & Burt. 34116 (S-B).

The Lion of the North. A Tale of the Times of Gustavus Adolphus and the Wars of Religion.

Publisher: NY, Burt [191-?].
"The story of the Thirty Years' War is too long to be treated in one volume. Fortunately it divides itself naturally into two parts. The first begins with the entry of Sweden, under her chivalrous monarch Gustavus Adolphus, upon the struggle, and terminates with his death and that of his great rival Wallenstein. This portion of the war has been treated in the present story. ...I am indebted to Mr. J. Grant's 'Life of Sir John Hepburn'." Contents include Shipwrecked; Sir John Hepburn; New Brandenburg; Marauders; The Siege of Mansfield; The Battle of Breitenfeld; The Passage of the Rhine; The Capture of Oppenheim; The Passage of the Lech; Captured by the Peasants; The Siege of Nuremberg; The Death of Gustavus; The Murder of Wallenstein; Malcolm's Escape; Nordlingen. vii, 434, 10 p., front., advertisements, 19 cm.; pale blue cloth boards decorated in red & black; pages darkened; front cover loosening, corners & spine ends worn, red-ink owner's stamp inside front cover; good. 34119 (S-B).
