About this Item

Illustrated title page. First Edition. 119 pp. 16mo. Disbound (lacks wraps). Else, Very Good. Johannsen, Beadle & Adams, II, pp. 268Ð72; III, pp. 8Ð9. A mid-19th century novel published by Beadle and Company. It is set among the early settlements in the Ohio Valley. There is engagement between settlers, hunters, pack-peddlers, etc. A Black character, Cato, is depicted on the cover frightened and fleeing an exploding blockhouse. This explosion was to confuse the identity of a dead man in order to help Cato's master escape with his bride. The dating is assured by the publisher's address, for Beadle moved from 141 William St. to 118 William St. between 9/19 and 10/1/ 1862. It is unclear whether the name Henry J. Thomas was a pseudonym for Colin Barker, Edward S. Ellis and John Lewis or whether either of the others were pseudonyms for Thomas. Or, indeed, whether Mr. &/or Mrs. Henry J. Thomas were the same pseudonymous person as the others. Several novels were published and republished by Beadle with the author listed alternatively by 2 or 3 of these names. Thomas wrote a number of novels for the House of Beadle, but the other names were credited for some of therm from time to time. Inscribed in pencil on rear free end paper: "Bob Greene / Canaan / NY.
