I second that! I sure wish a nice load of pulps like that would “come my way”. Some real good issues there!

Cheers. Things are really slow over here in Paris right now and this is the first good pile of books that I purchased this year. Fingers crossed that I'll be able to pick up more good stuff this year. :)

That's really nice, Cat.  Any idea if it was published anywhere, or what year she painted it?

Thanks!  This information I do not have.  Given the Deco style I'd be inclined to date this work to the 1940's or 50's, but I haven't been able to lock down a specific date or any details respective to it's history (yet).  That said, it is an exceptional piece regardless, extremely impressive from both distance and under close inspection.  My wife and I were both blown away by the painting.

Found at my LCS today.  Anybody know anything about the title?  It's pulp sized, and the edges are untrimmed, but the paper quality is better.

I find them interesting when they show up pulp like with a book feel to it. Lots of stories of the time period mixed with art work inside.Never seen that one and a really cool piece

Finally got a copy of this, I've been looking for this one for a while.  Not out of any particularly interest in the Shaver Mystery as such.  But I have a friend whose last name is, in fact, Shaver, and I wanted a copy of this book to mess with him. :nyah:

1940's or 50's

Awesome pick up.  Brundage is a giant.  Funny thing is I was thinking late 20’s early 30’s as it has an early Parrish feel to it.

Thanks! That very well could be the case, but in lieu of a date affixed to her signature I'll presume this to be a slightly later work.

You might very well be correct. For what it’s worth I spent some time on the HA archives comparing the signature on your painting to other examples with known publication dates if not the year when the painting was produced. Some of the later examples just have “Brundage”.  I also have a feeling your painting must have been published.

Yes

The pulps yes, many times.  Yakima’s are mainly one title and the Spicy's all over the map for condition , but still impressive.

However, the original art from Glynn’s collection is unbelievable .. will be an incredible opportunity to acquire a great piece for a anyone’s collection!
