On the verso of the FEP, Crussell notes in ink that when he was visiting Rhodes, he thought it “would be a neat trick” to present the author with a copy of his own book. “This he would not listen to and inscribed the book so that I might give it to some other body. He forgot however to sign his name…so I have corrected the oversight by pasting in his signature cut from one of his letters.” This copy also has the rare errata sheet bound between the FEP and half-title page..

Sacramento: E. H. Crussell, N.p., n.d. [Sacramento: Edward H. Crussell, c. 1933] Three issues of the Saturday Evening Post, bound in small folio, ½ burgundy leather and pebbled cloth, gilt titles and borders. These three stories were first published on April 21,1917; Feb 20,1926; and October 1,1932. Sacramento bookseller Edward H. Crussell was a great fan of Rhodes and had the three issues bound by local bookbinders Silvius and Schoenbackler. He mailed the book to Rhodes for a signature. Rhodes responded with a full-page inscription: ####### “Dear Mr. Crussell: Your binding of this book is best possible evidence that you really like these yarns. I thank you. / Am correcting Paso Por Aqui - in the volume “Once in the Saddle”. Not correcting “Over Under Around and Through.” The only copy I have is the English edition, wherein mistakes of American edition were eleminated. [sic] And I haven’t strength to read it over, closely, watching for errors. This yarn was published in book form, under the title Copper Streak Trail - to my sorrow. If they had made it “Copper Hill Trail” I would have been better pleased. / Personally, I liked Robteelee Carr, I was well aquainted [sic] with that Lad. / In the Proud Sheriff” I have made one correction - in chapter VIII. My mistake entirely. There was no empty shell. All was [sic], the cylinder had been turned so that the first attempt to shoot would bring the hammer down on an empty cylinder. Billy the Kid did that to Joe Grant, and as Joe snapped Billy laughed and killed him. / My favorite wife is copying off news paper item about Johnny Dines. By rights, it should go in Stepsons of Light. I am putting the sheets, loose, in this book, for you to dispose of as you will. [not present] Johnny Dines lives and thrives at Hillsborough, Cole Railston? at/or more accurately near) Magdalena and Jeff Bransford(?) is an old man in El Paso. Jack Farr an old man at Oscuro[?] And Johnny Pardee - (who is Bob Martin) drove down to see me yesterday. / Yours truly E.M.R.” ###### The April 21 issue includes the illustrated cover featuring the story; the other two issues only the interior pages only. Except for a small rubbed area on the April 21 issue cover, all pages are fine as is the binding. Each issue separated by several blank sheets. Glued to the front pastedown is Crussells’s bookplate and Rhodes’ 1934 newspaper obituary. In a cardboard portfolio with title label typed by Crussell..
