Outer wrappers faintly soiled and mildly edgeworn; inner text pages moderately age toned and a bit delicate as usual. Item #44429

Attractive issue of this adventure weekly. Chromolithograph front wrapper shows a pistol-packing turban-clad fellow tying up two similarly-clad villains laying on the ground alongside a pond at a desert oasis. Caption below reads: "But he made up his mind to bind and leave him there alive. Accordingly he took a coil of rawhide cord, which every Bedouin carries with him, and bound him hard and fast, laying him on the ground perfectly helpless." Fun and colorful front wrapper graphics. A far better than average dime novel (actually, "Price 5 Cents") or "penny dreadful," with text printed in two columns.

Price: $35.00
