Quantity: 1 available


First Printing 1900. From the M. B. Goldstone collection--with his penciled signature and notations lightly written on the front free endpaper. Goldstone and his brother Adrian (Steinbeck's Bibliographer) were relentless collectors of crime and early western fiction--with some of their collection netting over 5 figures at auction. This is a near flawless fine copy from the first printing in 1900. Blue cloth boards with gilt lettering to the front board and spine--as well as a depiction of a horse drawn covered wagon on a cloth label to the top front board in cream-- light blue--- and black. This copy has a few small faint splashes to the cloth spine--otherwise mint condition. Tight square and uncompromised--apparently tucked away and unexposed to sunlight and human touch for 110 years. From the author of "The Covered Wagon" and "The Story of The Cowboy", Hough was a master storyteller of early Western Fiction.
