1 Baxter, George Owen (pseud. for Frederick Faust, aka Max Brand) Call of the Blood
New York The Macaulay Company (c.1934) NO First Edition Hardcover Fair 
(no dust jacket) [considerable external wear, but still a solid reading copy; ex-lending library, with large stamp for Hayman's I.D.A. Pharmacy (city unstated) on ffep and half-title/blurb page]. A romance of the West, involving Native American characters: "What made Red Hawk flinch from the bloody rites of the Cheyenne tribal traditions, when he reached the age of eighteen? He was known to be strong and courageous yet he could not go through with it. Dismissed from his tribe, in disgrace, he took refuge among the whites and fell in love with Maisry Lester."

2 Baxter, George Owen (pseud. for Frederick Faust, aka Max Brand) The Killers
New York The Macaulay Company (c.1931, 1928) First Edition Hardcover Very Good 
(no dust jacket) [moderate shelfwear, some browning/spotting to page edges, light bumps and slight fraying to cloth at bottom corners, one-time owner's signature in pencil on ffep, tiny tear at fore-edge of title page]. Crime novel that segues to a Western setting about halfway through (hence the Western-motif front-cover decoration of a man on horseback waving a large hat), by this prolific pulp novelist, one of eleven books he wrote under the Baxter pseudonym between 1923 and 1935. This tells the exploits of "Geraldi, dashing knight errant, [who] is a modern Robin Hood who preys only upon those who have preyed upon others." Originally serialized in Western Story Magazine in 1928; later published (as by Max Brand) as "Three on the Trail," and subsequently in paperback as "Gunman's Goal." [The original serial title was probably "Tragedy Trail," although I've not verified this directly; another seller claims it was "Three on the Trail," but that title does not appear among the list of serials credited to Baxter during 1928.] (**)
