Writers are Morley Roberts, Ernest William Hornung, Mrs. Edith Nesbit Bland, Robert Murray Gilchrist, William Michael Rossetti, Reginald John Campbell, Sir Francis Cowley Burnand, Henry William Lucy, Charles Marriott, William Edward Norris, Leonard Merrick and Linsley Sanbourne.

Date:

1894 (issued)

Note:

Gilchrist was a British novelist whose works include Frangipanni (1894), Rue Bargain (1898), and Labyrinth (1902).
The materials probably came from the library of Sir Isaac Foot, acquired by the University of California in 1962. Items were originally cataloged individually, but have been placed together in this collection because they appear to have had the same provenance (e.g., most are stamped with identical "Received" stamps).
