Twelfth edition of this popular work, originally issued the previous year. Titcomb was the pseudonym for Josiah Gilbert Holland. Dr. Holland's "hopeful, somewhat sentimental philosophy grew out of his knowledge of the ordinary problems of ordinary people, and a helphful interest in his fellow men. He achieved his first marked success with his TITCOMB'S LETTERS TO YOUNG PEOPLE." - DAB. BAL 8582.
