Description: Mountie to the rescue --- Panning for gold
Comment: Like a lot of the great Saunders' pre-war pulps… this cover for North-West Romances from Fall 1940 has about 15 things going on at once. Oftentimes, I think this type of picture is a hard thing to pull off successfully without making it seem hokey. We figure, of course, that the mountie is about to save the day…. After all, doesn't he always… this though is the “breathless moment” just before.
Price: $22,500 (+ $100 domestic shipping)
