B&W Illustrations; This book is in Very Good+ condition and is lacking a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in generally clean, bright condition. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some light bumping and rubbing. The text pages are generally clean, but there is toning to the edges of all the text pages and possibly some foxing. "Despite his day-jobs, Dowst was a prolific contributor of short stories and novelettes to magazines like The Saturday Evening Post, People's Favorite Magazine, and Argosy All-Story Weekly. One bibliography has identified 35 Dowst stories published between 1913 and 1923, though the list is not exhaustive. He also wrote at least two novels in the same period, Bostwick's Budget (Brooklyn, ca. 1920) and The Man from Ashaluna (Boston: Small, Maynard & Co. , ca. 1920) , the second of which was produced as a film in 1924 (entitled On the Stroke of Three) starring Kenneth Harlan. Four Dowst short stories were also filmed in his lifetime: An Honest Man (1918) , The Redhead (1920, starring Alice Brady) , The Dancin' Fool (1920, starring Wallace Reid) , and Smiling All the Way (1920, from the story Alice in Underland). Dowst died at the very height of his writing career, his last novelette, The Hands of Man, being published posthumously in Munsey's Magazine in 1923." (from Wikipedia)
