About this Item

This author specialized in spinning yarns for young adults in such books as "Boy Scouts Afloat; or Scouting on the Mississippi in a House Boat" (1918), "Boy Scouts Courageous: Stories of Scout Valor and Daring" (1918) and "The Hidden Islands" (1920). AMS, 1p, 8½" X 11", n.p., n.y. Near fine. On custom letterhead, Walden neatly prints the name of his latest novel -- "The Voodoo Gold Trail / by / Walter Walden" -- plus title of the first chapter and a lengthy section of the first couple paragraphs, signing a second time boldly at the conclusion. While the admirer who wrote him requested an actual working manuscript page, Walden instead has neatly written out this passage -- though likely he copied it off of his original manuscript, for it bears words and phrases which he's crossed out. From the collection of Albert Johannsen, author of "The House of Beadle and Adams and Its Dime and Nickel Novels" (University of Oklahoma Press, 1950), the definitive reference work and bibliography on the subject. Johannsen's original 8½" X 11" file folder, bearing his printed "Collection of Albert Johannsen" label (partly filled in by Johannsen), accompanies this item. Also present is a copy of "The Voodoo Gold Trail" (Boston: Small, Maynard & Company, 1922), a very good first edition of this small 8vo volume in blue cloth. Bookseller Inventory # 31845
