Octavo, pp. [1-7] 8-288, five illustrations, original pebbled gray cloth, spine titled and ruled in gold. First edition? Perhaps a later printing (circa 1880s?) of this collection of didactic adventure fiction probably intended for young readers. These stories were probably first published THE LEISURE HOUR, an illustrated penny-weekly paper which featured moralistic, self-improving serial novels, most of them published anonymously. Includes "Tale of a Detective," pp. 102-131, a crime story set in 1845. All the stories are presented anonymously, but "A Race for Life" is credited to the author of "Danesbury House" and "A Life Secret" [i.e. "A Life's Secret"], both works written by Ellen Price Wood (Mrs. Henry Wood). A popular book reprinted many times into the early twentieth century. Thirteen stories in all. "The Power of Music" tells two stories, one about Bach, another about Gluck. Hubin (1994), p. 24. A tight, clean, very good copy. (#119333). N° de réf. du libraire 119333
