6 1907-1917 Novels by Grey, the Williamsons, Kyne, Field, Dowding and Hall.

Lot 724. 6 1907-1917 Novels by Grey, the Williamsons, Kyne, Field, Dowding and Hall. All of the books are hardcovers. One of the more intriguing novels of the period is Henry Wallace Dowding’s 1910 “The Man from Mars or Service, for Service’s Sake.” Dowding was a British clergyman who emigrated to the U.S. in 1889. In the book, his protagonist searches for an elusive document and spends time on Mars. The book has a pictorial cover printed in white on light blue-gray cloth. G+ first-edition hardcover with cracked hinges, covers showing wear, and an inscription on the flyleaf; complete with the covers firmly attached. Zane Grey’s contribution to this collection is “Wildfire,” printed in Jan. 1917, g+, cracked hinges, covers tight, no dust jacket. Edward Salisbury Field wrote “A Six-Cylinder Courtship,” 1907 first edition, near fine. The book has an embossed cover with a color illustration by Harrison Fisher. Besides being an author, Field was a playwright, poet, journalist and artist. His novel “Twin Beds” was turned into four different movies from 1913-42. Peter B. Kyne is the author of “The Last Chance,” 1914 first edition, vg, name on the flyleaf. As many as 100 of Kyne’s novels were turned into movies. “Set in Silver” is a 1909 first-edition novel by the Williamsons, C. N. (Charles Norris) and A. M. (Alice Muriel). Although many novels were attributed to this husband and wife, apparently they were written largely by A.M., the author of numerous other novels under her name alone. More than 20 of her individual or joint efforts were turned into movies. The book has an embossed cover with a paste-down photo. G-vg, cracked hinge inside the back cover, otherwise a nice used book. Emmett Campbell Hall was a prolific screenwriter and occasional actor and novelist. One of his stories is presented in a 1914 novel, “The Beloved Adventurer,” vg, flyleaf toning, no dust jacket. The story was produced as a series of 15 photoplays featuring Arthur V. Johnson and Lottie Briscoe, who appear in photos throughout the book. Romance, science fiction, the old West, adventure – this group of books offers vintage entertaining reading. Minimum Bid $25.
