Modest Stein did this illustration for the April 4, 1914, issue of ALL-STORY WEEKLY, a leading pulp of the day. Each
issue cost ten cents. I've always liked both this painting and the one done by Stein for The Bandit of Hell's Bend.
Stein had a colorful background. He was a failed-assassin in the Anarchist Movement (no kidding!), for example.
Interesting guy! Check him out at David Saunder's web site, Pulp Artists.
