1 Hammond, Ralph (pseudonym of Ralph Hammond Innes) Black Gold on the Double Diamond
London Collins 1953 First Edition Hard Cover Good to Very Good Fair 
Hammond was better known as thriller writer Hammond Innes. This one finds a young man abruptly leaving England for "a lonely ranch in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies," where "oil rigs are becoming more common than cattle," and where he hopes to find his father, until then believed killed at Dieppe during World War II. Although it has the appearance of the traditional duster, it is a story of the Canadian West in the middle of the last century, and can only be remotely considered a western, and only then because it includes ranches and cattle in the story about oilmen. Blue cloth w/embossed silver illustration of a cowboy astride his dependable steed, 192 pages, dust jacket illustration by Hodgson. Dusty/tanned edges, bumped corners, previous owner's name in pencil to front end paper, light tanning, in price-clipped and rubbed dust jacket w/edgewear, edge tears, chipping to top/bottom spine, pieces missing from top and bottom of front panel. Jacket in protective mylar sleeve.
