ADVENTURE, November 10, 1921, 1st “Jimgrim” story

A key issue of this well-regarded and still-feverishly-collected pulp from its Golden Age. The principal attraction is Talbot Mundy’s   full-length novel “The Adventure at El-Kerak,” the first of his many tales featuring James Schuyler Grim (aka “Jimgrim”), a former U.S. Army intelligence officer who lingers in the Middle East after the First World War. But that’s not the only outstanding story in this issue. There’s also the final action-packed installment of Arthor O. Friel’s serialized novel “The Pathless Trail,” still considered by many to be the best of his book-length works. And the first installment of John I. Cochrane’s “Sled Wheeler and the Nameless Order,” a tale of underworld intrigue. And J. Allan Dunn’s “The Exterminator,” a story of pirates in the Spanish Main. And even more than that. In other words, a top-notch number. Condition is Very Good, maybe Very Good Plus. The magazine is sound, with complete covers and spine. The front cover is creased (see scan) and the back cover is lightly soiled. The spine is complete and mostly bright except for the bottom two inches, which show evidence of light staining. The text block is lightly yellowed and generally supple, although there’s been some past flaking of page extremities. I don’t want to overemphasize this, though; the magazine is perfectly readable and, in fact, an average specimen of this period.
