Young Captain Jack / The Son of a Soldier: The Son Of A Soldier (The World At War)

by Edward Stratemeyer

Horatio Alger, Jr.; January 13, 1832 – July 18, 1899) was a prolific 19th-century American author, best known for his many juvenile novels about impoverished boys and their rise from humble backgrounds to lives of middle-class security and comfort through hard work, determination, courage, and honesty. His writings were characterised by the "rags-to-riches" narrative, which had a formative effect on America during the Gilded Age. His popularity—and income—dwindled in the 1890s. In 1896, he had (what he called) a "nervous breakdown"; he relocated permanently to his sister's home in South Natick, Massachusetts. Before his death, Alger asked Edward Stratemeyer to complete his unfinished works.[56] In 1901, “Young Captain Jack” was completed by Stratemeyer and promoted as Alger's last work. Alger once estimated that he earned only $100,000 between 1866 and 1896; at his death he had little money, leaving only small sums to family and friends. His literary work was bequeathed to his niece, to two boys he had casually adopted, and to his sister Olive Augusta, who destroyed his manuscripts and his letters at his wish.

The Young Visiters: Or Mr. Salteena's Plan

by Daisy Ashford

From the Book Jacket: What a treat is in store for every reader who has not yet encountered The Young Visiters, and what added pleasure awaits those who have a fond, if dim, memory of this ageless classic of unintentional humor- a romantic novel written by a nine-year-old girl. As a child, Daisy Ashford possessed a keen ear for the conversations of her elders, and was an avid reader of the Victorian novels of her day. From these sources, and with her own considerable talent, she fashioned the fabulous love story of naively sophisticated Ethel, handsome, wealthy Bernard, and poor Mr. Salteena, the disappointed suitor. Her genuinely delightful combination of childish and adult viewpoints, the unconscious caricature and satire of romance, make this tale still one of the funniest books ever written. In its present edition, the flavor and humor of the book are accented by a specially styled binding and forty-eight line cuts by the noted artist, William Pene du Bois. This book was first published thirty-two years ago, when its author, then a full-grown woman, discovered the manuscript with other childhood mementos among the effects of her lately deceased mother. Upon publication, the book met with instant and howling success. Sir James Barrie wrote the preface for the first edition, and to the great surprise of the author, publisher, and Sir James himself, the public and critics alike chose to believe that the book was a hoax, written by Barrie. Daisy Ashford, however, is very authentic and very real. Today she is Mrs. James Devlin, living quietly on a farm near Norwich, England, a mother of four and grandmother of two. The original manuscript of The Young Visiters, childishly scrawled in a twopenny notebook, may be viewed in the London Exhibition of the Festival of Britain.
