    Zane Grey. Riders of the Purple Sage. A Novel by Zane Grey. Illustrated by Douglas Duer. New York and London: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1912.

    First edition. Octavo. 334 [335] pages. Four illustrated plates, including the frontispiece.

    Publisher's tan cloth covers with the front cover single ruled in purple and lettered in gilt and outlined in purple. A small landscape illustration is affixed to the front cover. The spine is lettered in gilt. Top edge is stained a faded black. Some rubbing to the covers, very minor bumping and fraying to the corners and head and foot of the spine, small stains to the bottom edge, previous owner's small inscription on the verso of the frontispiece, small blue stamp on the rear pastedown endpaper. Altogether a very good copy.

    This work is Zane Grey's most widely regarded novel, and was highly influential in the burgeoning Western fiction genre.
