HAZELTON, HARRY. - The Trail of Blood. A tale of New York. [bound with] Life Among the Red Indians. An Indian Romance.

Glasgow, John S. Marr & Sons [c1870?]. Two volumes octavo together in contemporary quarter straight grain calf and cloth; 115 & 127pp. Some light browning but rather good. ¶ Rare Glasgow editions of rare enough dime novels; John S. Marr & Sons published cheap popular stuff between about 1865 and 1885. The more interesting is of course 'The Trail of Blood'. OCLC lists a New York published edition copyrighted 1866 but can't find a copy in any library. Neither can I in any of the expected libraries. This Glasgow edition is unfound anywhere I can think of looking. Cambridge University has a John S Marr printing of another Hazelton title (they date 1867) and tells us George Savage wrote as Harry Hazelton but no-one called George Savage would change that name to write cheap thrillers. Harry Hazelton was a Beadle house name usually applied to westerns and wilderness titles; it's a surprise to find it on a contemporary tale of turmoil, intrigue and murder set among the well to do of New York.
