FFEP also has purple stamp reading "Louisiana Contract Price 75 Cents." Rear endpaper has Marine Hospital stamp and 3 due dates. Rear pastedown has a paper "strap" holding library card with 3 handwritten names in faded ink. The library markings amount to c. 1900 ephemera and thus have a certain charm. The rest of the text is clean and unmarked. Grace King (1852-1932) was a native of New Orleans and a noted writer who was friends with Mark Twain and George Washington Cable. She wrote fiction, history, and biography. John R. Ficklen (1858-1907) was a professor of history and political science at Tulane University. The two also collaborated on the book Stories from Louisiana History. 246 pages, illustrated with B&W photos and drawings. A nice copy of a scarce book.
