[N.p., but possibly London, 1932. Some light soiling and chipping around edges, but images generally bright and clean. Overall, very good. A remarkable group of original cover art for the BUFFALO BILL NOVELS, a British boys' pulp magazine published from 1916 to 1932 by the Aldine Publishing Co. in London. Despite its name, the stories were not always about Buffalo Bill, though they were always set in the Old West and featured plenty of cowboys and Indians. These illustrations are all signed by Robert Prowse (R.P.), who did artwork for this and other similar projects; some are dated below his initials. The series ran for 342 issues, though the last cover in this collection is for No. 344, possibly an unpublished issue, as we could find no trace of this title associated with the BUFFALO BILL NOVELS. Somewhere between No. 188 and No. 191, "New Series" began to appear above the issue number, though they all appear to be of the same run and the numbering is continuous. The titles are as follows: No. 23. THE MAN IN BLACK No. 24. THE MAD AVENGER No. 29. THE RED TOMAHAWK No. 41. THE PONY RIDE DETECTIVE No. 44. THE CRIMSON ARROW No. 51. BUCK TAYLOR!
