First Edition. 8vo. Publisher's blue cloth titled in gilt to spine and front cover, decorated with western locomotives in red and black. A little spotting to front boards, darkening to spine and cosmetic wear to spine ends. Top edge gilt, all other page edges untrimmed. A respectable copy of a scarce novel of road agents and outlaws of the Old West. This copy from the library of noted authority Eric Quayle containing some of his pencil notation to the prelims and an interesting translation of a Japanese 'chop' ownership stamp to the front pastedown. Eric Quayle (1921- 2001) was a highly respected and renowned author (and authority) writing on many different aspects of book collecting and bibliography. Amongst other achievements he produced the standard bibliography of the works of R.M. Ballantyne, The Collector's Book series covering everything from Detective Fiction to Boy's Stories, in later years he also produced volumes of little known children's stories, including a volume of Cornish folktales. Throughout his life he was a great collector of books and ammassed a large number of works, all of which seem to have contained his bookplate and a tiny, pencil notation detailing either where and when it was purchased, or some other important detail Mr. Quayle considered relevant. His collection came up for auction at Bonhams in March and April 2004 and attracted a great deal of interest from collectors and dealers alike, Mr. Quayle may have gone, but the books that he spent his lifetime preserving and describing are still circulating, and will do so for a very long time.
