HEART OF THE SUNSET. by Beach, Rex (1877-1949) < >


Edition: First edition.

New York: Harper & Brothers, (1915) dj. Hardcover first edition - Although best known for his books set in the far North, this novel of adventure, romance and humor is set on the Texas-Mexican border. Basis for the 1918 Frank Powell silent cowboy western ("Rex Beach's Epic Drama of the Great American West") starring Anna Q. Nilsson, Herbert Heyes, Robert Taber, and E.L. Fernandez. Illustrated with a full-color frontispiece and eight glossy black and white plates by M. Stockton Mulford (the dust jacket repeats the art on the frontispiece.) "Published September, 1915", H-P code at copyright page (indicating an actual printing in August 1915). 356 pp.

Condition: Very good in a fair only dust jacket - the front cover of the book, with a cowboy in silhouette against a gold heart is bright and beautiful, but the spine of the book is faded where the dust jacket is missing approximately 3 inches at the bottom of the spine (other edgewear to the dj) Despite the flaws in the dj, this is very uncommon in the first edition in dust jacket.
