The Southwestern Historical Quarterly, Volume 52, July 1948 - April, 1949

Clockwise above, Evetts Haley lends the authen-
tic Texas touch to the occasion wlife Herbert
Gambrell and Roy Bedichek, fresh from their
luncheon confessions on "How-I-Wrte-a-Book,"
survey the standing-room-only crowd Lou Kemp
peers under his spectacles at the itenr offered op-
posite. Bookseller Heartmann is one among the
many "in the trade" that keeps a pro essional eye
on the prices reached. On the facing page in the
same order, auctioneer Timmons pushes sales
against the five-fifteen deadline vhile Bailey
Carroll pulls on his stogie. Dr. Nixon stimulates
the bidding on neglected items as Carl Hertzog
suffers through a new design problenr as his old
products sell at a premium. Harber Davenport
stays on following his pre-auction t;,lk to enjoy
the sport.
