Overview

According to Wikipedia: "Talbot Baines Reed (3 April 1852 - 28 November 1893) son of Charles Reed, and grandson of Andrew Reed, was an English writer who specialised in boys' school stories, the most famous of which were The Fifth Form at St. Dominic's (1881) and The Adventures of a Three Guinea Watch (1883)... Talbot Reed's family was also closely involved with the Religious Tract Society, which founded the Boy's Own Paper - a periodical which published all of his stories. Talbot Reed more than any other late 19th century writer was responsible for the ensuing popularity of school stories in British children's fiction. Amongst his non-fiction was his contribution to the history of English printing, A History of the Old English Letter Foundries, published by Faber."
