Book Summary:

This is one of two short story collections as sequels to the Raffles books by E.W. Hornung.THE ADVENTURE OF THE HERALD PERSONAL (excerpt)That I was in a hard case is best attested by thefact that when I had paid for my Sunday Herald there was leftin my purse just one tuppence-ha'penny stamp and two copper cents,one dated 1873, the other 1894. The mere incident that at this houreighteen months later I can recall the dates of these coins should beproof, if any were needed, of the importance of the coppers in myeyes, and therefore of the relative scarcity of funds in mypossession. Raffles was dead--killed as you may remember at thebattle of Spion Kop--and I, his companion, who had never known wantwhile his deft fingers were able to carry out the plans of thatinsinuating and marvellous mind of his, was now, in the vernacular ofthe American, up against it. I had come to the United States, notbecause I had any liking for that country or its people, who, to tellthe truth, are too sharp for an ordinary burglar like myself, butbecause with the war at an end I had to go somewhere, and Englishsoil was not safely to be trod by one who was required forprofessional reasons to evade the eagle eye of Scotland Yard untilthe Statute of Limitations began to have some bearing upon his case.That last affair of Raffles and mine, wherein we had successfully gotaway with the diamond stomacher of the duchess of Herringdale, wasstill a live matter in British detective circles

Book Summary:

The late nineteenth century American humorist John Kendrick Bangs was an inventive satirical writer, who inspired the genre of Bangsian fantasy. Famous works like ‘A House-Boat on the Styx’ employed a fantastical premise, involving the use of famous literary or historical individuals and their interactions in the Afterlife. In the popular magazines ‘Puck’ and ‘Life’, Bangs created numerous hilarious characters, including Jimmieboy, the Idiot, Alice in Blunderland, the Unwiseman and a popular Raffles spin-off series — all revealing his important contribution to the development of humorist literature.

Book Summary:

George Dempster was a giant of a man who became one of the best-known and most deservedly popular Scotsman of his day. He served for thirty years as a Member of Parliament in Westminster and was closely involved with the expansion of British influence and trade across the world particularly in India and North America. This was the age of Empire building and intense rivalry between competing imperial powers, which led to protracted warfare. A lawyer by training, Dempster was at the heart of political and business life and his circle of friends was large and powerful. Yet power did not corrupt him and he was respected by allies and opponents alike, being known as 'Honest George'. Laird of estates at Skibo in Sutherland and Dunnichen in Angus, Dempster's energy was legendary and he used his talents as reformer, innovator, entrepreneur and developer to bring prosperity and jobs to disadvantaged regions of his beloved Scotland. Dempster was more than an observer of history; he made it. This highly detailed biography of a major but hitherto little known figure of the period gives a rare insight into the political life of the Georgian era, covering the growth of British rule in India, loss of North America during the War of Independence and the years of constant conflict with France. The Gentleman Usher, this superbly researched work with its copious illustrations, is an important and authoritative addition to the bibliography of Scottish history of the period.
