This prolific novelist's Westerns are highly praised for their authenticity; his first book was ("The Range Riders," short stories, 1911) and first novel was "The Two Gun Man" (1911), and dozens followed; many ended up on the silent screen, with screenplays penned by Seltzer. TMS, 1p, 8½" X 11", n.p., n.y. [ca. 1923]. Near fine. Double spaced, large margined typescript of page 14 of a manuscript titled "Sunset." Seltzer signs large and bold in black ink across the lower margin, and in the large left margin adds "Page from / Latest work, / entitled 'Sunset." In the right margin Seltzer has penned a few small ink text corrections. Fine example of a working page from what appears to be a fairly finished draft. Either this novel was never published or it was published under a different title, for no Selzter novel titled "Sunset" was ever published. From the collection of University of Chicago geology professor Albert Johannsen (1871-1962), author of "The House of Beadle and Adams and Its Dime and Nickel Novels" (1950), the definitive reference work and bibliography on the subject. Johannsen's original 8½" X " file folder, bearing his printed "Collection of Albert Johannsen" label (partly filled in by Johannsen), accompanies this item. Bookseller Inventory # 26753
