Thirteen: Stories Of The Far West

by Forbes Heermans

First edition. 8vo. Dark green cloth, gold stamping on front cover and spine, 263 pp. A group of 13 short stories with Western themes. One is a tale about Billy the Kid. Dykes Kid 18 says, "Rare. The author claims that these stories are based on actual experiences, with such changes in names, places, and minor incidents as his personal safety seem to require. However, if his Billy the Kid story, 'THE WEDDING AT PUERTA de LUNA,' is a fair sample, they are pure fiction, and not even historical fiction." Former owner's bookplate on front pastedown sheet, light cosmetic restoration to the spine ends and lower corners, rebacked with the original spine laid down, else a very good, tight copy. SIX GUNS 964. DYKES KID 18.
