"Book Society" bookplate signed "Mrs. G. J. Winterhalder Dec. '32" on front pastedown.

RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE. Zane Grey. RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE.
New York: Grosset & Dunlap, Before 1918. An early reprint edition with illustrations by Douglas Duer and the frontispiece illustration reproduced as the dust jacket cover, as in the original Harper edition. SIGNED BY GREY in "Lackawaxen, Pa.," from where we understand he moved in 1918, so an early reprint. This title is considered by many critics to have played a significant role in shaping the formula of the popular Western genre. It tells the story of Jane Withersteen and her battle to overcome her persecution by members of her polygamous Mormon Church, a leader of which, Elder Tull, wants to marry her. Withersteen is supported by a number of Gentile friends, including Bern Venters and Lassiter, a famous gunman and killer of Mormons. It was made into a number of movies starting in 1918 with one starring William Scott and directed by Frank Lloyd; then again in 1925 with Tom Mix, 1931 with George O'Brien, 1941 with George Montgomery and on TV in 1996 with Ed Harris and Amy Madigan. This copy was OWNED BY THE MOVIE STAR AND BOOK COLLECTOR Jack Palance and has two bookplates attesting to this below Grey's signature. The book is very good with minor wear and the jacket has chipping and some tape on the outside across top inch of spine and extending onto the front and back covers. Still, scarce in any early jacket and signed by Grey. EARLY REPRINT SIGNED BY GREY.
