Howard Browne. Warrior of the Dawn. The Adventures of Tharn. Chicago: Reilly & Lee, [1943].

    Octavo. 286 pages.

    Publisher's maroon cloth covers with the front cover and spine lettered in gilt. Illustrated dust jacket. Top edge red and the rest uncut. Back cover slightly rubbed, jacket corner somewhat bumped, back of jacket slightly rubbed with some chipping, front inner flap of jacket clipped. Altogether a tight and very good copy.

    Howard Browne (April 15, 1908 - October 28, 1999) utilized several pseudonyms, however, this work was written under his official name. Interestingly the rear inner flap of the jacket presents an advertisement for war bonds and stamps: "The Axis nations are using their utmost strength to let in the jungle across the whole face of the civilized world...Help push back the jungle. Keep it from America. If you can fight, fight. At the least, make your money fight!"

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
