This two volume set by O. Henry (William Sidney Porter) is titled: Heart of the West and is entirely comprised of stories set in the American West. The 19 stories are thought to be partially based on true stories that O Henry may have heard during his wanderings in Texas and Mexico. Stories that may have been once told as quick anecdotes over a campfire, were polished and crafted with vivid characters, romance, humor, and adventure.

These little books measure 6 5/8" x 4 1/2".

Publisher: Nelson Doubleday, Inc.: Both Volume One and Two are copyrighted 1907.

Both books have burgundy cloth hardboard covers in very good condition. The spines carry the book titles and a design in a faded gilt. The front of each book has a silhouette within a circle and the name O' Henry beneath. The stitched pages are clean and intact. Volume One has a penciled name and address on the front end page. Otherwise no marks found. Volume Two is without marks. There is a bit of white glue residue noted on the spine of each book where there was apparently a label at one time.
