First published in 1899, "The Story of the Treasure Seekers" is a novel by E. Nesbit that tells the tale of Oswald, Dora, Dicky, Noel, Alice, and Horace Octavius Bastable's endeavours to help their widowed father recover the lost fortunes of their family. It is the first in a trilogy that includes: "The Wouldbegoods" (1901) and "The New Treasure Seekers" (1904). Edith Nesbit (1858 - 1924) was an English poet and author. She is perhaps best remembered for her children's literature, publishing more than 60 such books under the name E. Nesbit. She was also a political activist and co-founded the Fabian Society, which had a significant influence on the Labour Party and British politics in general. Other notable works by this author include: "The Prophet's Mantle" (1885), "Something Wrong" (1886), and "The Marden Mystery" (1896). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
