Item Description: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma: Lusk Publishing Company, 1939. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First edition of the author's first book, a collection of poetry published at age 31. Accompanied by a two-page TLS written by L'Amour around the same time to the literary editor of the Minneapolis Tribune hoping to inspire free publicity for the book. "I was born in Jamestown, N. D.," he writes, "have visited Minnesota several times and feel the book would attract some attention there if you could find space to give it an adequate notice." But in the next breath he pooh poohs his poetry. "Prose is really my line," he continues. "I'ver written a lot of adventure stuff, and in March '38 had a story in Whit Burnett's Story, which as you know, is tops. I'm 31, and I believe headed for the top." He wasn't wrong but had to shelve his personal plans for four years while he served in the military during World War II. After the war he focused his efforts on pulp magazines, especially the Western pulps, and roared to success as one of the most prolific and successful writers in history. He found a home at Gold Medal Originals where he published several book a year, most notably Hondo (John Wayne called it the best Western he had ever read). In the sixties he moved to Bantam Books where he wrote some of his famous works, including Fling (1960), Calou (1963), Down the Long Hills (1968) and his series on Sackett family. He won the Congressional Gold Medal in 1983 and Ronald Reagan awarded him the Presidential Medial of Freedom a year later. L'Amour died of cancer in 1988 by which time he had written over 100 novels and 400 short stories. An autobiography was published posthumously. The copy of Smoke From This Altar has a paperclip impression on the front endpaper and the title page, but is otherwise fine. The jacket is whole but solid and age darkened. The letter shows some wear at the for edge but is otherwise fine. Book and signed letter sold as a pair.). Bookseller Inventory # 0016

Item Description: Warner Brothers, Burbank, CA, 1953. Final script for the 1953 film. Based on the short story "the Gift of Cochise" by Louis L'Amour, published in Collier's Magazine on July 5, 1952. Copy belonging to actor Tom Irish, with his name to the front wrapper and his holograph notations throughout. Though easily one of John Wayne's best performances, in which he plays a cavalry scout tamed by a passionate frontierswoman whom he endeavors to protect from Apaches, "Hondo" was lost until the early 1990s due to conflict within the Wayne estate. Geraldine Page, in her film debut, received an Academy Award nomination for her role as the frontierswoman, and the film was nominated for a second Academy Award for L'Amour's writing as well. Shot in the briefly-popular stereoscopic 3D technique that was invented in late 1952, in which two cameras are placed slightly apart from each other for filming and two projectors are used to screen the film while the audience wears 3D glasses. As opposed to widely-used gimmicks like objects coming at the camera, director John Farrow wished to use the format to more evocatively portray the depth of the Mexican desert, though unfortunately screening the film in 3D became nearly impossible once the film left the theaters. Set at a remote ranch in the Arizona Territory, shot on location in Mexico, Arizona, and Utah. Orange titled wrappers, noted as FINAL SCRIPT on the front wrapper, dated May 1, 1953. Title page present, dated May 1, 1953, noted as FINAL SCRIPT, with credits for screenwriter James Edward Grant and novelist Louis L'Amour. 96 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 90. Mimeograph on blue stock, with white and blue revision pages throughout, dated 5/8/53. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus bound internally with three gold brads.Pitts 1921. Weldon 1996.
