About this Item

This American novelist and playwright (member of the American water polp team at the 1904 Olympics) often used his experiences in Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush as the basis for his adventure tales such as "The Spoilers" (1906); a household name in the early 20th century because of bestsellers such as "The Net" (1912), "Don Careless" (1928), "Jungle Gold" (1935) and many others, he committed suicide at age 71. Bold, quite handsome "With pleasure, / Rex Beach" on a 5" X 2½" slip, n.p., n.y. Near fine. Accompanied by a superb sepia-tone full-length portrait, heavy stock 7" X 9½", published by The Mentor Association in 1918 (Vol. 6, No. 14, Serial 162) as part of a "Makers of Modern American Fiction" portfolio. Near fine. Beach stands rugged he-man outdoor garb, both hands in pockets, his hat cocked jauntily, with a studio backdrop of woods and fields; verso is a full-page printed biographical statement.
