W.H.D. Koerner. Fine/Near Fine. 1st ptg. 4to, 243pp. A thorough look at this illustrator, who's career helps to reveal the world of popular culture beween WWI and WWII. In the same class as N.C. Wyeth, Anton Otto Fischer, Harvey Dunn and Frank Schoonover, Koerner provided illustrations for many major writers and the magazines their work appeared in. His studio is now rebuilt in the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum in Cody, Wyoming. Much of his work explored, with rare realism, the world of vanishing Indians and the wild west. Publication price was $35. Very Fine in a near fine jacket, with a 1" wrinkle in the top front and two light water stains. Not price clipped.
First edition, 4to, pp. xii, 243, ; frontispiece, illustrated throughout; fine, in price-clipped dust jacket. Koerner was commissioned by the Saturday Evening Post in 1922 and from that time on he did more than 500 paintings and drawings for more than 200 western stories and serials. Authors illustrated by Koerner include Eugene Manlove Rhodes, Conrad Richter, Stewart Edward White, Zane Grey, Hal G. Evarts, C.E. Scroggins and others.
