1 Ames, Robert Andrew Jungle Roundup [*SIGNED*? (see note)]
New York Lothrop, Lee & Shepard (c.1959) NO First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dj Illustrated by (dj) Donald Bolognese Signed by Author
[moderate shelfwear, slight bumping/fraying to bottom corners, top rear corner also lightly bumped; jacket has several small tears and light wear along top edge, minor chipping at bottom of rear panel, a little paper loss at top of spine, spine sunned]. INSCRIBED and SIGNED, apparently by the author, on the ffep. The inscription reads "To _______ / del autor con todo mi respeto[?]," which translates roughly to "with all the respects of the author." The signature reads "Robert R. Horry, alias Ricardo de Enacienda" [sp?]. I have uncovered no known pseudonyms for this author, but everything about this inscription/signature indicates to me that it is, indeed, authorial. The story concerns "Chico, son of a Yaqui princess and an American doctor in Mexico, [who] lives with his Indian chieftain grandfather and is almost old enough to be initiated as a Yaqui warrior of the first rank. But before he finishes his training his American father calls on him for help to save the people of his village, threatened with starvation. And young Prince Chico, in spite of the disapproval of his grandfather, responds to his father's call." Signed by Author
