Written by Wheeler between 1877 and 1885, these numerous stories tell the tale of Ned and his sister Anita, who "are driven from their home in the East by the persecutions of Alexander Filmore and his son, Clarence .... Ill fortune follows them, and young Ned Harris eventually becomes an outlaw and captain of a band of road agents." [Cox. Dime Novel Companion, pp. 73-74]. Mostly set in the Black Hills, the series began publication in Beadle's Half-Dime Library, with republication numerous times, including this set of 64 by Westbrook. While individual Westbrook issues are frequently encountered, a complete set, as here, is somewhat uncommon. . Woodcut engraving to p. 1, duplicating wrapper design.

        THE SOUL OF GOLF

      London: Macmillan and Co., Ltd, 1912. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 203 x 140 mm (8 x 5 1/2"). xiii, [1], 356 pp., [1] leaf (ads). FIRST EDITION. Original forest green cloth with gilt golfer on front cover, crossed golf clubs on spine, top edge gilt. 16 photographs, including the frontispiece, showing golfers in action, featuring golfers Harry Vardon, J. Sherlock, and others. Murdock 812; Donovan & Murdock 38210. A number of muted spots (and a half dozen small, light spots) on upper board, a half-inch portion of the front hinge slightly separated, front pastedown with seven black tally marks inked over, isolated trivial foxing in upper margin, one inoffensive yellow stain, but still an excellent copy, the binding almost entirely clean and bright, and the text generally well preserved. Pembroke Arnold Vaile (b. 1866), inventor of the Vaile putter, was a man with a mission to teach a no-nonsense approach to golf. In his view, too many self-styled golf experts have made fools of golfers, instructing learners to play in ways that they themselves never would. In this guide to successful golfing, he declares that golf is a matter of knowing the proper stance and strategy, and moving the proper muscles. If the golfer gets into the right position, and moves according to Vaile's directions, the result should be a winning game. The title is a bit misleading, or perhaps was chosen with irony, as Vaile emphatically does not believe in any mystique of golf, and is contemptuous of those who try to use mind power to move the ball. Throughout the book, Vaile (who must have been unpopular with many of his peers) disparages the approaches offered by other golfing experts, while explaining and endorsing the techniques of selective golfers he has observed.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) to his wife

      Long Key, FL, 29 Jan. 1912. Letter. Folds from mailing, still about Fine, with envelope. A one-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED as "Doc" to his wife "Dolly" with fine content on Florida East Coast Hotel Co./Long Key Fishing Camp stationery with envelope. In full: "It sure is hunting my forgotten birthday! Let&#39;s see. I&#39;ll be 38. Gee! I feel old. But maybe its this damned languorous climate. I&#39;ve been eating too much, also. There isn&#39;t any news. The sun shines, the winds blow, and time flies. I&#39;ll be home soon again. I have not been fishing yet. This matter of work begins to drag on me. If I don&#39;t work I&#39;m unhappy. Yesterday I wrote some of the scenario of the play. I&#39;ve somehow lost confidence since I read that play book. But things will come to a head soon. I&#39;m glad for this past week. I seem to be my old self again. Aren&#39;t you glad? I&#39;d appreciate a letter from you occasionally. You&#39;ll be mad when you see that all this fat [?] letter is not a love letter to you. With love to all, Doc." Superb letter mentioning his two loves--fishing and writing--addressed to his other love.
