About this Item

The Further Adventures of The Treasure SeekersNESBIT, Edith. The Wouldbegoods. Being the Further Adventures of the Treasure Seekers. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1901.First edition. [8], 331, [1 blank] pp. Nineteen black and white plates, including frontispiece and pictorial half-title.Early twentieth-century three-quarter dark blue morocco, ruled in blind, over blue marbled boards. Spine lettered in gilt with five raised bands. Top edge gilt, others uncut."A follower of William Morris, 19-year-old Nesbit met bank clerk Hubert Bland in 1877. Seven months pregnant, she married Bland on 22 April 1880, though she did not immediately live with him, as Bland initially continued to live with his mother. Their marriage was an open one. Bland also continued an affair with Alice Hoatson which produced two children (Rosamund in 1886 and John in 1899), both of whom Nesbit raised as her own. Her own children were Paul Bland (1880-1940), to whom The Railway Children was dedicated; Iris Bland (1881-19??); and Fabian Bland (1885-1900), who died aged 15 after a tonsil operation, and to whom she dedicated Five Children And It and its sequels, as well as The Story of the Treasure Seekers and its sequels?Among Nesbit's best-known books are The Story of the Treasure Seekers (1898) and The Wouldbegoods (1899), which both recount stories about the Bastables, a fictional middle class family that has fallen on relatively hard times; Nesbit likely styled them upon her own childhood family. Nesbit's children's writing also included numerous plays and collections of verse" (Wikipedia). Bookseller Inventory # 00867
