Thomas Forester was the author of: Everard Tunstall: A South-African Tale (1851), A Road-Book for Tourists in Norway, with Hints to English Sportsmen and Anglers (1854), Rambles in Norway, 1848-1849 (1855), The Danube and the Black Sea (1857) and Rambles in the Islands of Corsica and Sardinia (1858).

Percy Keese Fitzhugh (1876-1950) was an American author. His first known work, The Goldenrod Story Book was published in 1906. The bulk of his work, having a Boy Scouting theme, revolves around the fictional town of Bridgeboro, New Jersey. Characters included Tom Slade, Pee-wee Harris, Roy Blakely, and Westy Martin. Fitzhugh's Scouting based books were very popular with children and adults. His characters became so real to his readers that it was not uncommon for Percy to receive fan mail addressed to the characters themselves. In the 1930's, as the popularity of Fitzhugh's Scouting stories began to wane, he began writing the Hal Keen Mystery Series (10 titles) under the pseudonym Hugh Lloyd. They were followed by another mystery series - Skippy Dare - (3 titles). Neither of these series achieved the popularity of his earlier Boy Scout work. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
A work of Jacob Abbott, an American writer of children's books, was published in 1858 under the title “History of King Richard the Second of England”. As the title suggests, this volume is dedicated to Richard II. The author’s aim was to present the main, outstanding traits in the characters, and all the important events of his life, in a clear and free manner, as well as in the plain and simple language.
The author is considered to have a terrific gift for narrative, and his books all read as if they were high suspense novels.
