About this Item

Thanet (1850?1934) was the nom-de-plume of Alice French, a granddaughter of Massachusetts Governor Marcus Morton. She was a novelist and short story writer who at the age of six moved with her family to Davenport, Iowa; however, she was educated in New England and at Vassar, returning to live in Iowa and summering in Arkansas, both states providing her with settings and dialects for her writings. The present work is a series of short stories ("The Missionary Sheriff," "The Cabinet Organ," "His Duty," "The Hypnotist," "The Next Room," and "The Defeat of Amos Wickliff") set in Iowa. The black and white illustrations are by A.B. Frost and Clifford Carleton. Binding: Publisher's blue-gray cloth stamped in white with an overall pattern of an exuberant vine hiding the repeating image of an eagle with a palm branch in one talon and arrows in the other. Title and author in gilt on cover and on spine. Small 8vo (19 cm; 7.5"). [3] ff., 248 pp., frontis., 14 plates. Wright, III, 2046. Binding as above, very bright and nice; without the dust jacket. Very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 34607
