1 Reed, Talbot Baines Roger Ingleton, Minor, etc. A tale
London sampson l 1896 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Grey cover with black and gold print. Very handsome book. Endpapers have turned brown from age and becoming brittle. Talbot Baines Reed (3 April 1852 28 November 1893) was an English writer of boys' fiction who established a genre of school stories that endured into the mid-20th century. Among his best-known work is The Fifth Form at St. Dominic's. He was a regular and prolific contributor to The Boy's Own Paper (B.O.P.), in which most of his fiction first appeared. Through his family's business, Reed became a prominent typefounder, and wrote a standard work on the subject: History of the Old English Letter Foundries. Reed's father, Charles Reed, was a successful London printer who later became a Member of Parliament (MP). Tributes honoured him both for his contribution to children's fiction and for his work as the definitive historian of English typefounding.Reed's regular readers included the young P.G. Wodehouse, who particularly loved the school stories. (Wikipedia); 8vo 8" - 9" tall
