Radin ~ 1883-1959 was born on April 2 in Lodz, Poland. He was
the son of Dr. Adolf M. (a rabbi) and Johanna Theodor Radin. He attended
school at City College and received his Bachelors Degree in 1902. After
several different paths of graduate studies followed in different cities
in Europe, he finally received his Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1911.
Radin was predominantly an ethnologist; he conducted extensive fieldwork
among the Ojibwa and Winnebago Indians in the Great Lakes Region. He was
head of the Department of Anthropology at Brandeis University, taught at
the University of California Berkeley, Cambridge University, Fisk University,
the University of Chicago, Kenyon College and Black Mountain College and
was Samuel Rubin Professor at Brandeis University. He wrote several books
and articles including A Study of Comparative Literature, Part II, The
Culture of the Winnebago: as Described by Themselves (1949), Social Anthropology
(1932), The World of the Primitive Man (1953)and The Method and Theory
of Ethnology (1933). Radin has written several more, but the list is so
extensive it is inconceivable to include it here.

Rube Burrow robbed his first train with the help of his brother, Jim Burrow and two cowboys on Dec 1, 1886 in broad open daylight. It was a passenger train on the Ft. Worth-Denver Railroad at Bellevue Texas, he took $300.00. Two weeks later, at Ben Brooks, Texas, he relieved the baggage car attendant of $4,000. For four years this bandit ranged the south always daring and always successful. . . . Rube escaped jail, locking two guards in his cell, and taking another guard as a shield and went across the street to Glass’ Store looking for Jeff Carter to get back money that had been taken from him. Jeff Carter was waiting in the store, when Carter came outside, he and Rube exchanged gunfire. Afterwards, Rube was dead in the street and Carter was wounded. . . .

These and other 19th century Charles Reade books are featured at:
Charles Reade was a neglected 19th Century English novelist and dramatist. He is noted for his historical romance The Cloister and the Hearth. After being elected a fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford, he was called to the bar. His interests, however, soon turned to the theater. He achieved his first success with Masks and Faces (1852), written in collaboration with Tom Taylor. The play, concerned with life in the theater, was used as the basis for his first novel, Peg Woffington (1853). An ardent reformer, he began a long series of propagandist novels with It’s Never Too Late to Mend (1856), describing the cruelties of prison discipline. Others in the series included Hard Cash (1863), and Put Yourself in His Place (1870). He also wrote the novels Griffith Grant (1866), Foul Play (1869), and A Terrible Temptation (1871). His masterpiece, The Cloister and the Hearth (1861), is a picaresque novel concerning the adventures of Gerard, the father of Erasmus. In 1879 Reade collaborated with Charles Warner in writing Drink, a dramatization of Zola’s L’Assommoir.

Sketches by a Skirmisher: The Mexican War Writings of Capt. Mayne Reid Co. B, Second Regiment of New York Volunteers
Mayne Reid was born on April 4, 1818 at Ballyroney, County Down, Northern Ireland. At one time, he was one of the most widely read authors of both adult and juvenile adventure novels in Europe and North America. Today, both Reid and the tales he authored are largely forgotten in the English-speaking world for which he originally wrote, although he still seems to have a following in other nations, principally Russia. The writing career of Mayne Reid, one of the nineteenth century's most prolific author of adventure novels, was sparked by his service in the Mexican War. Serving as an officer with the 2nd New York Volunteers, the highly-eloquent Reid participated the Battle of Chapultepec, where he was severely wounded.

the Easting Down by Felix Riesenberg ~ From The New York Evening Post
From Cape Good Hope to Melbourne, with yards squared taut and true,
We drove East under fore course and a rag of tops'ls too.
The following seas ran close astern, deep troughed and crested white--
Sea horses fearful in the day, mad chargers in the night.
With head in spray, 'mid spuming drift, beneath a leaden sky,
We held our course 'fore the westerly gales as the Southern sea birds fly.
In sixty east and forty south, as near as we could say,
We shipped a sea in the last dog-watch that washed the wheel away.
To starboard went the helmsman, lashed to the broken rim,
The mad blue water swept the deck and two men followed him.
"Aft to the rudder-tackles!" God! How she thrashed about--
"Man the lee fore braces!" we heard the Captain shout.
Next she took a comber high on the quarter rail,
As ready hands 'way forward braced sharp the great foresail.
The weather leeches stiffened, she ran up, then fell off,
And a cable payed from the quarter-bitts steadied her 'cross the trough.
But aft in the black sea boiling lay death 'neath the storm clouds' frown,
In sixty east and forty south when running the Easting down.

The Secret of Storm County: The silent film
Spurned by the townspeople because her father is a squatter, Tess Skinner nevertheless wins the love of the wealthy Frederick Graves, who secretly marries her. When Frederick's mother insists that he marry heiress Madelene Waldersticker, however, he lacks the courage to admit that he is already married and instead acquiesces to his mother's wishes. For her husband's sake, Tess conceals his crime of bigamy. When her baby is due, Tess is summoned before a council of churchmen and banished from the church because she refuses to name her betrayer. Left alone upon the death of her father, Tess is shielded by Mr. Young, a middle-aged admirer who offers her and her baby the protection of his home. Several years later, Frederick dies of a heart attack and Tess rewards her faithful friend by becoming his wife.

|Mysteries of the Court of London (10 volumes) ~ 1844 -1856
Online Edition (partial)
The Mysteries of London, and its later incarnation, The Mysteries of the Court of London, re-named after a dispute with the original publishers (Vickers and Stiff) led Reynolds to set up an independent publishing house with John Dicks in 1848, ran in uninterrupted weekly penny issues from 1844 to 1856. In its entirety, The Mysteries is approximately 4.5 million words in length, and Reynolds claimed that every one of them was his own, publicly denying that he employed ghosts writers in one of his many digs at Dickens over the years, although this is questionable. There are 624 weekly numbers, each comprising eight pages of double-column text and a juicy woodcut; a monthly issue of four stitched weekly numbers was also available, as was a bound volume of 52 numbers issued annually. The Mysteries was a Victorian publishing phenomenon, a consistent best-seller with weekly sales in the tens of thousands and which made its author famous and its publishers rich – a gothic soap opera intended largely for an urban working class audience, combining radical politics with luridly illustrated revelations of aristocratic and underworld depravity, never afraid to revel in sex and violence.
The central plot of the labyrinthine
Mysteries is surprisingly simple, and owes as much to Sade’s sisters Justine
and Juliette as it does to Sue, being the story of two brothers, Eugene
and Richard Markham, one of whom follows the path of “rectitude and virtue”,
the other “chicanery, dissipation, and voluptuousness”. In Chapter IV,
set in July 1831, the two brothers meet between two ash trees, a favourite
childhood haunt, to bid each other farewell. The elder of the two, Eugene,
has quarrelled with his father and intends to leave home and seek his fortune.
They agree to meet at exactly the same spot in twelve years time to “compare
notes relative to our success in life.” After the death of his father,
Richard, too, heads for the “city of fearful contrasts”, that “modern Babylon”,
London. The protean Eugene reptiles his way through the narrative under
a variety of assumed names and identities until he comes to a sticky end,
mortally stabbed by one of the many he has cheated, and dying in his brother’s
arms – along the way he is, among other things, a seducer, a corrupt financier
and, worst of all, a Member of Parliament. While Eugene is loyal only to
his own desire, and as bent as a nine bob note, Richard is both honourable
and heroic. In his adventures, Richard is wrongfully imprisoned in Newgate
(where all London writers must go), before becoming involved in the Italian
state of Castelcicala’s struggle for independence, finally becoming a hero
of the republic and marrying Isabella, the daughter of the rightful ruler.
Reynolds also exhibits a Dickensian scope for incidental characters, whose
paths usually criss-cross with both brothers. The most important secondary
characters are the dissolute Marquis of Holmesford; the sinister “Resurrection
Man,” Anthony Tidkins, and his arch enemy James Cuffin (AKA “Crankey Jem”);
the pot-boy Henry Holford, who breaks into Buckingham Palace and symbolically
sits on the throne; and Ellen Monroe and Isabella Alteroni, who marry the
brothers. Victoria, Albert and prominent members of Her Majesty’s Government
also appear along with rakes, beggars, entrepreneurs, whores, servants,
thieves, and killers too numerous to mention, although the author politely
suggests that the young queen is kept ignorant of the suffering of many
of her subjects by her advisors.
|George William MacArthur (G.W.M.) Reynolds 1814
- 1879 a man of independant and wealthy means who imitated Dickens
not only in his creative work but also in publishing his own periodicals.
Reynolds was born in Sandwich
in 1814, the son of a naval flag-officer, Captain Sir George Reynolds.
Captain Reynolds sent his son to Sandhurst Royal Military College at age
fourteen to train for a career as an officer and a gentleman. Young George
possessed a sensitive soul and an independent spirit however, and army
life did not suit him. He consequently escaped Sandhurst as soon as he
was able, dropping out in 1830 upon inheriting £12,000 from his mother,
who had out-lived her husband by several years....
