Queen Elizabeth. Introduction by G. R. Elton.

Publisher: Crowell, NY [1966] reprint of 1899 edition.
xv, 200 p. "The object which I had before me in writing the following pages was to sketch the life of Elizabeth as plainly as possible. I have endeavoured to illustrate a character rather than to write the history of a time. But Elizabeth’s life was so closely interwoven with the history of England that it is impossible to separate her actions from public affairs, and I have been drawn into general history more often than I wished. I can only say that I have endeavoured not to wander into any matters which were not necessary for an explanation of Elizabeth’s conduct, and that I have only enlarged the stage to find room for the actor."

Publisher: Philadelphia, Lippincott [1969]. 'First Edition'.
381 p., index. "Here we see Henry James in the midst of his deep personal crisis of the 1890s, and watch as the tales and novels of this period provide his catharsis. His triumphant emergence from the depression by which he was afflicted after his unrequited love affair with the theater constitutes both a fascinating chapter in literary history and a unique case of literary self-therapy. The struggle to regain his emotional health, his relationships with several young men who became his acolytes, are described by James's biographer with insight and narrative skill. ...This volume concludes with James's return to spiritual health and the onset of his most prolific years, during which he sometimes wrote a story a week."

Heath, Mary Hubbard  
The Elbert Hubbard I Knew: An Intimate Biography from the Heart and Pen of His Sister
 Picture
Publisher: The Alpine Press, 1981 Stoughton, MA.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "This book was first published..printed and bound by the Roycrofters in East Aurora, New York, arts and crafts shops established in the 1890s by Elbert Hubbard. Robert Parker, author of the recent book, Mature Advertising, has this to say of the book: 'Fra Elbertus, as he was fondly known, was born Elbert Hubbard in 1856 in Bloomington, Illinois. In the jargon of today, one might possibly say he became a man who always 'did his own thing.' He was unique among men. And that is the nub of this book. It is the story of a boy, raised in a home of very modest means (his father an impractical country doctor) whose uniqueness won him world-wide renown. It is the story of an independent thinker, philosopher, writer, businessman and lecturer. It's also the story of a man who gave mightily of self to the concept of social justice. He was a man ahead of his time. And his story is lovingly, quietly told by one who knew him well, his sister, mary Hubbard Heath. The name, Elbert Hubbard, won't ring any bells for the younger generations of today, except, perhaps, for those who have read 'A Message to Garcia', the classic little essay that gained him universal fame overnight. But it surely will ring loud and clear in the minds of many in the oldest generations. So, this book, and its nostalgia, is mostly for them. Don't pass it up though if you have never heard of Elbert Hubbard. It makes good reading for anyone interested in life as it was lived in the decades just before and at the turn of the century." 221 pages.
