In the 1890s, one of the most well-known popular magazine contributors signed her stories and essays Octave Thanet, the pseudonym used by Alice French. Alice French (1850 - 1934), better known as Octave Thanet, was an American novelist. She was born at Andover, Massachusetts, a daughter of George Henry and Frances Wood French, and began her literary career about 1878 with studies of a social and economic bent, but soon turned to short stories, especially after her removal to the West. Iowa and Arkansas gave her opportunities for exploiting regions hitherto little attempted in fiction. French's mother, Frances, was the daughter of Massachusetts Governor Marcus Morton.. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
