I was reading an 1876 edition of Charles Dickens and I noticed other books were advertised in the back. As might be expected, Jane Austin and other heavyweights were there, but so were books by "Captain Mayne Reid".

"Captain" Reid wrote many adventure novels akin to those written by Frederick Marryat and Robert Louis Stevenson. He was a great admirer of Lord Byron. These novels contain action that takes place primarily in untamed settings: the American West, Mexico, South Africa, the Himalayas, and Jamaica.
