About this Item

FIRST AMER. EDITION. Full blue cloth with red and black design on the front cover and the spine. Spine a bit worn, moderate wear to the extremities. Notably age-toned paper. Overall in FAIR condition. Hugh Stowell Scott (1863? - 1903) was a novelist (under the pseudonym of Henry Seton Merriman). He was an underwriter in Lloyd's, but having a strong literary bent, latterly devoted himself to writing novels, many of which had great popularity. They include The Slave of the Lamp (1892), The Sowers (generally considered his best) (1896), In Kedar's Tents (1897), Roden's Corner (1898), Isle of Unrest (1900), The Velvet Glove (1901), The Vultures (1902), and Barlasch of the Guard (1903). He worked with great care, and his best books hold a high place in modern fiction. He was unusually modest and retiring in character. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 016958
