That Boy of Barton's; or, The Luck of a Lad in Wall Street.

New York: Frank Tousey, Publisher, 1907. Paperback. March 20, 1907 edition (No. 459) of "Pluck and Luck: Complete Stories of Adventure." 4to. Pictorial color wrappers. 30pp, (2pp ads). Good plus. Outer wrappers faintly soiled and mildly edgeworn; inner text pages moderately age toned and a bit delicate as usual. Item #44434

Attractive issue of this adventure weekly. Chromolithograph front wrapper shows a Victorian lady attacking a derby-hatted young man on a busy Manhattan street. Caption below reads: "To say that Alex was surprised would be a very mild way of describing his emotions as the woman gave him a resounding slap on the side of his head and face. He was dumbfounded. He knew who she was." Bright, 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: $45.00
