Imperial Valley Editions of The Winning of Barbara Worth


     In the Imperial Valley, California, copies of The Winning of Barbara Worth are not things to be sold to tourists, but are given as gifts, or purchased by collectors, and treasured for life.  For that reason, the editions that are locally produced are of a very high quality.  All four of the editions listed here were initiated by Harold Bell Wright Society president, Quentin Burke, but each has a different publisher.

P.  Holtville Tribune, 1987.  Facsimile reprint of 1911 edition. Green library binding.  1000 copies printed, without dust jackets.  

 

bwimp02b.jpg (22710 bytes) Q. Holtville Printing and Graphics, 1991.  Facsimile reprint of 1911 edition.  Similar to above but with color picture of Barbara on cover and "Limited Edition 1991 Holtville Printing and Graphics" stamped on cover.  ISBN 0-9618473-0-1.  A limited edition of 450 copies, individually numbered and signed by Norman Wright, youngest son of Harold Bell Wright.  Due to errors by both the typesetter and the binder, the title page and spine mistakenly attribute this edition to the Holtville Tribune.
V.  Imperial County Historical Society Commemorative Edition, 1998.  ISBN 0-9618473-5-2.  Maroon cover hot stamped in gold to match the 1911 first edition.  Preface by Norman Wright, introduction by Lawrence V. Tagg, and appendices describing the production of the original book, the plays, the movie, collectibles, sites, etc.  Numbered edition of 250 copies, signed by Norman Wright until his eyesight failed, and after that signed by one or the other of Wright's grandsons below a rubber stamp of Norman's signature.  Has all the original illustrations plus many other pictures.  This volume has a color frontispiece of Barbara, a booklet in the back marking the unveiling of the Winning of Barbara Worth manuscript in the Pioneers' Museum, and a framable 8" x 10" portrait of Barbara.  Available from the Imperial Valley Historical Society, 373 East Aten Road, Imperial, CA 92251.  Phone: 760-352-1165.   $49.50

W. Harold Bell Wright Society Edition, 1998.  ISBN-0-9618473-6-0.  Green cover to match the 1911 Burt edition, with a pasted-on egg-shaped picture of Barbara.  The text, illustrations, preface, introduction, appendices, etc. are the same as the Historical Society edition, above, but there is NO color frontispiece, framable picture, or souvenir booklet.  Available from the Harold Bell Wright Society.  $29.95
