The 450 contest (because it's where I am)

Howdy Partners!

So I guess it's my turn to have a contest... and since I am almost 450 post old, I figured now is as good a time as any...so here it goes...

Guess my favorite book of all time based on these 2 clues:
1. It was written between 1875 and 1925 2. It had a "prequel" that was not well received

One guess per person and you have until my 450th post to make your guess. I will announce the winner at that point.

The prize pack will be at LEAST 8 great sticks and will include many of my persona favorites including, but not exclusive to, RP Decade, Casa Magna and DPG My Father...

Good Luck my friends...

    Can I clarify something with you? Is the "prequel" written by the same author?

    Maybe a Sherlock Holmes book? I thought maybe the great gatsby, but that couldn't be right, no prequel.

    EDIT: Nvm, that prequel was by a different author ='(

    I'm guessing "King Solomon's Mines" by H. Rider Haggard. Prequel was "Allan Quatermain".
