About this Item

The biographer of cowboy novelist Eugene Manlove Rhodes and executor of his literary estate, this writer authored such titles as "A Bar Cross Liar: Bibliography of Eugene Manlove Rhodes" (1956), "California: The Golden Shore by the Sundown Sea" (1980) and other Western histories -- along with popular Whitman juvenile Westerns such as "Gene Autry and the Golden Ladder Gang" (1950) and "Gene Autry and the Big Valley Grab" (1953). Two ALsS, each 1p, 8" X 11" and 7" X 10" respectively, Chico, CA, 1947 January 10 and February 11. Addressed to Owen Davies. Near fine. Fine content concerning Davies ordering copies of Hutchinson's edition of Rhodes' short story collection "The Little World Waddies," which he had designed and printed for him by the legendary printer/typographer/book designer Carl Hertzog. "We have been swamped with orders," writes Hutchinson, "and have fallen far behind due to bindery output; we are filling orders in chronological sequence but have made an exception in your case." As an unrelated aside, he comments: "I would judge that you are of Welsh extraction. the most soul-stirring experience I have ever had or expect to have, was watching the debarkation of a Welsh regiment at Oran in Algeria when they marched from the quay up the steep sloping hillside into the town singing the 'March of the Men of Harlech'." Davies ordered 52 copies of "The Little World Waddies," by the way -- a book that today generally sells for several hundred dollars. A great pair of letters, both signed simply and boldly "Hutchinson.". Bookseller Inventory # 15624
