First published 1905. Illustrated by C. M. Relyea. It is pretty safe to say that no writer for young folks can write of boarding-school life so interestingly as Ralph Henry Barbour. His latest book for boys is The Crimson Sweater, and is the best he has done. The girls will like it, too, for the heroine of the story is the daughter of the headmaster of the school. Ralph Henry Barbour (November 13, 1870 – February 19, 1944) was an American novelist, who primarily wrote popular works of sports fiction for boys. In collaboration with L. H. Bickford, he also wrote as Richard Stillman Powell, notably Phyllis in Bohemia. Other works included light romances and adventure. Biography:During his career, Barbour produced more than 100 novels as well as a number of short stories................... Charles Mark Relyea (April 23, 1863 – 1932) was an American illustrator whose work appeared in magazines and popular novels in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Life and career: Relyea was a native of Albany, New York, and spent most of his early years in Rochester. He studied art under Thomas Eakins at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and under Frank Vincent DuMond at the Art Students League in New York City before completing his training in Paris. After returning to the United States, he made his home in New Rochelle, New York. His illustrations appeared in the children's magazine St. Nicholas, as well as magazines for broader audiences, such as Munsey's. In 1897, a publishing house chose Relyea to illustrate The Rubáiyát of Doc Sifers, Hoosier poet James Whitcomb Riley's poem satirizing The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. Because Relyea was not from Indiana, Riley insisted that he visit the state before making his drawings, to ensure that he would not misrepresent Indiana or caricature its residents. Selected works: Books with illustrations by Charles M. Relyea include: The Rubáiyát of Doc Sifers (James Whitcomb Riley, 1897) Standard First Reader (1902), published by Funk & Wagnalls Children of the Tenements (Jacob A. Riis, 1903) A Defective Santa Claus (James Whitcomb Riley, 1904) Her Brother's Letters (Anonymous, 1906) Just Patty (1911) Left Tackle Thayer (Ralph Henry Barbour, 1915), Dodd, Mead & Company The Slipper Point Mystery (1921)....
