Antiquarian Book: Alton of Somasco - a Romance of the Great Northwest - by Harold Bindloss - A. L. Burt 1906 - Illustrated

Sorry, this item has sold.

"Alton of Somasco, a Romance of the Northwest" is a spirited western romp through Northwest Canada. While technically this is a western, it is more frontier and north woods. The hero is a rancher and a man of entrepreneurial spirit who gains an inheritance in England that sets in motion a lot of action adventure as well as romance and chicanery. Too much happens in the plot of this novel for me to do it justice. The author was Harold Bindloss. It is illustrated by E. Martine Reay.

Bindloss was an English author who specialized in tales of the Pacific Northwest, particularly up into Canada. His style of western adventure was very popular with both English readers and American readers.

CONDITION: Fair to good. There is quite a bit of wear to the top of the spine, no dust jacket, and typical bumping and wear to the green cloth cover. However it is still attractive. The binding has begun to crack in the front and back, but the pages are still sturdy. Someone wrote their name in the inside.

SIZE: 5 inches by 7 1/2 inches.
