By: Hough, Emerson

Price: $275.00

Quantity: 1 available


First Printing. A handsome copy with the rare dustjacket. From the M. B. Goldstone collection of early Western Fiction. This copy is in Very Good condition with a very good unclipped ($2.00) dustjacket. There is overall moderate age toning with some minor wear to the extremities, rubbing to the cloth boards and some soiling to the page ends--a well read copy--but also tight and square with no compromise to the binding or spine. The rare dustjacket is bright and colorful, missing some of the paper at the heel of the spine--and with light chipping at the head of the spine and a couple of closed end tears. The verso of the dustjacket has a Paramount Picture advertisement of the movie starring J. Warren Kerrigan and Lois Wilson--. This copy is protected in a red cloth chemise (covering the dustjacket) that is near fine. The entire book and chemise fits nicely into a custom clamshell container in matching red cloth and quarter morocco with gilt lettering to the spine and "First Edition 1922" in gilt at the bottom of the clamshell spine. The clamshell casing has some light wear to the extremities and some minor rubbing to the spine. In addition--there is a nicely done cartoon caricature of Zane Grey, Emerson Hough and Philip Ashton Rollins laid in--roughly 5" x 7"--appears to be from the publisher--along with some small clippings relating to the bibliography--probably from Goldstone. Additional pics available. Hough was also the author of "The Story of The Cowboy". A very unique and collectable copy--with the very rare dustjacket.
