The Young Fur Traders
“The Young Fur Traders” is a children's adventure novel by Scottish author R. M. Ballantyne, first published in 1856. Set in the American Old West, this exciting tale is full of action and daring-do, making it ideal for children with an interest in the Wild West and American history. Robert Michael Ballantyne (1825 – 1894) was a Scottish author of children's fiction. He was a prolific writer and produced over 100 books in his lifetime. As well as being an author, Ballantyne was also an accomplished artist, having exhibited his work at the Royal Scottish Academy. Other notable works by this author include: “The Coral Island” (1858), “The Gorilla Hunters” (1861), and “The Eagle Cliff” (1889). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction and biography of the author.

Communicating with Indigenous People in "The Coral Island" by Ballantyne, "She" by Haggard and "The Prisoner of Zenda" by Hope
Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, University of Osnabrück, language: English, abstract: Adventurers make a lot of acquaintances. On their travels, they stand up to cannibals of the South Pacific, live together with an African tribe or even disguise themselves as monarch of a fictitious Ruritanian folk. With whomever the protagonists get in touch, they cannot get around communicating. Thus, a lot of communication processes are also displayed in the three Victorian novels The Coral Island (1858) by Robert M. Ballantyne, She (1887) by H. Rider Haggard and The Prisoner of Zenda (1894) by Anthony Hope. These communication processes, however, do not solely restrict themselves to spoken language, but also embody the mimic and gestural features of the body language. In terms of the former, it is striking that in each of the abovementioned novels, the language of the indigenous population is different to that of the adventurous main characters. Instead of their mother tongue, the adventurers are confronted with Arabic, Greek, Hebrew and Latin; with German and even with “dialects of the language peculiar to the South Sea Islanders” (Ballantyne 215). Since such a diversity of languages can also lead to communicational problems, it will be interesting to see how the characters can cope with misunderstandings or a limited vocabulary.

A Catalogue of the Everett D. Graff Collection of Western Americana,...
The Everett D. Graff Collection of Western Americana consists of some 10,000 books, manuscripts, maps, pamphlets, broadsides, broadsheets, and photographs, of which about half are described in the present catalogue. The Graff Collection displays the remarkable breadth of interest, knowledge, and taste of a great bibliophile and student of Western American history. From this rich collection, now in The Newberry Library, Chicago, its former Curator, Colton Storm, has compiled a discriminating and representative Catalogue of the rarer and more unusual materials. Collectors, bibliographers, librarians, historians, and book dealers specializing in Americana will find the Graff Catalogue an interesting and essential tool. Detailed collations and binding descriptions are cited, and many of the more important works have been annotated by Mr. Graff and Mr. Storm. An extensive index of persons and subjects makes the book useful to the scholar as well as to the collector and dealer. The book is not a bibliography but rather a guide to rare or unique source materials now enriching The Newberry Library's outstanding holdings in American history.
