Vintage HC books Oliver Optic - POOR & PROUD, BRAVE OLD SALT


Two vintage hardcover books by William Taylor Adams who wrote under the pen name Oliver Optic.  Both show some wear but I don't see any major issues.  Bindings look good to me.
William Taylor Adams (1822-1897) is known as the author of such outstanding books as All Aboard; or, Life on the Lake (1855), Poor and Proud; or, The Fortunes of Katy Redburn (1858), The Soldier Boy; or, Tom Somers in the Army (1863), The Birthday Party: A Story for Little Folks (1864), Outward Bound; or, Young America Afloat (1867), Now or Never; or, The Adventures of Bobby Bright (1872), Taken by the Enemy (1888), Little by Little; or, The Cruise of the Flyaway (1888), On The Blockade (1890), Within the Enemy's Lines (1890), Stand by the Union (1891), Fighting for the Right (1893), A Victorious Union (1893), Haste and Waste; or, the Young Pilot of Lake Champlain (1894), and Across India; or, Live Boys In The Far East (1895). The Soldier Boy; or, Tom Somers in the Army is a very successful and captivating story describing a young boy named Tom Somers who serves in the army.
