About This Item

NEW YORK: STREET AND SMITH PUBLICATIONS, 1938 The Shadow is a fictional character appearing in serialized dramas on radio in 1930 and later in pulp magazines beginning in 1931. Eventually the character appeared in a wide variety of other media. Details of the character have varied across various media, but is generally depicted as a crime fighting vigilante with psychic powers posing as a "wealthy, young man about town".[2] One of the most famous adventure heroes of the twentieth century, The Shadow has been featured on the radio, in a long running pulp magazine series, in comic books, comic strips, television, video games, and at least five motion pictures. The radio drama is well-remembered for those episodes voiced by Orson Welles. TERRIC PIECE OF HISTORY, TIGHT, WEAR AROUND THE EDGES OF THE OUTSIDE, INSIDE LIGHTLY BROWN WITH AGE, BEAUTIFUL ARTWORK ON THE COVER. PAGES INSIDE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, ARTWORK IS BLACK AND WHITE INSIDE AND VERY NICE. GREAT HISTORIC ADVERTISING. NO INTERNAL MARKINGS.

Recognizing the demand and responding promptly, circulation manager Henry William Ralston of Street & Smith commissioned Walter B. Gibson to begin writing stories about "The Shadow." Using the pen name of Maxwell Grant and claiming the stories were "from The Shadow's private annals as told to" him, Gibson wrote 282 out of 325 tales over the next 20 years: a novel-length story twice a month (1st and 15th). The first story produced was "The Living Shadow", published April 1, 1931. ANTIQUE BOOKS STORE, WHERE HISTORY LIVES.
