Item Description: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, London, 1925. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good+. First Edition; First Printing. 8vo. 159 pages; Publisher's terra-cotta ribbed cloth, spine lettered in gilt. A lovely copy, clean, tight and with just the faintest signs of any use or wear. Pencil signature on front free endpaper ["Coleman Jennings / April 1929]. No date specified on the volume, but OCLC supplies a date of 1929 [see OCLC Number: 41332284], which is strongly supported by the dated pencil signature in this excellent copy. The author, J. S. N. Sewell had degrees from both the Sorbonne (Paris) and Trinity College, Dublin. According to a note on the website of his last school [Farnborough Grammar School, in Hampshire, U.K.] --Sewell ran his own private school before the war, but that this had somehow failed. He was also the author of a book of talks for boys leaving preparatory school, published in 1928 [An ad for this other title is found in a box opposite the title page]. In addition, Sewell was a dramatist and had several plays broadcast by the B.B.C. His great aunt was the Victorian author Anna Sewell ['Black Beauty']. The present volume uses a metaphor of the running and care of a motor-car for advising young "Public" school boys on the conduct of life, success at school, etc. Charming, and now rather scarce, both in institutional holdings (a handful in the UK; none in the USA) and in the trade.

Item Description: The American Humane Education Society, 1893. Softcover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. First Edition. First edition. Possible variant state, differing from other 1893 editions we found in two ways: 1) does not include 10 pages of advertisements; 2) does not designate it as Gold Mine Series No. 2. 1 inch chip from corner of front wrapper, two tiny internal chips to front wrapper, light stain to top edge of front wrapper and first couple pages. 91 pp. Printed wrappers, stapled binding. Thought published anonymously, this short novel has recently been attributed to Gene Stratton-Porter, famous for her novel The Girl of the Limberlost ('Gene Stratton-Porter: Novelist and Naturalist by Judith Reick Long). There are differing views on this count, but if the attribution proves valid, this would be her first published work, preceding her first attributed novel (The Song of the Cardinal) by ten years. It was written in part as a (presumably unauthorized) sequel to Anna Sewell's 1877 novel Black Beauty. Also notable as an early publication by the American Human Education Society, which promoted the proper treatment of animals from 1880-1945, and which formed the Jack London Club in 1918 to illuminate cruelty to animals used for the purpose of entertainment in circuses. This work includes an anonymous preface explaining that the story is intended to depict the master-slave relationship currently prevailing between humans and animals, in an effort to correct it. She uses a labor strike as a device to show the important role of animals in various human endeavors, which also humanizes them by portraying them as workers instead of property.Keywords: CHILDREN FICTION SELF RELIANCE INDIANA.
