1880s - 90s The Dragon and the Raven by G.A. Henty
1880s - 90s The Dragon and the Raven by G.A. Henty George Alfred Henty, 1832 – 1902, was a prolific English novelist and a special correspondent. He is best known for his historical adventure stories that were popular in the late 19th century. His works include The Dragon & The Raven (1886), For The Temple (1888), Under Drake's Flag (1883) and In Freedom's Cause (1885).
Henty wrote 122 works of historical fiction and all first editions had the date printed at the foot of the title page.[8] Several short stories published in book form are included in this total, with the stories taken from previously published full length novels. It is a common misconception that American Henty titles were published before those of the UK. All Henty titles bar one were published in the UK before those of America. The simple explanation for this error of judgement is that Charles Scribner's Sons of New York dated their Henty first editions for the current year. The first UK editions published by Blackie were always dated for the coming year, to have them looking fresh for Christmas. The only Henty title published in book form in America before the UK book was In the Hands of the Cave-Dwellers dated 1900 and published by Harper of New York.
