"Don't shoot til they're nigh enough!"
A historical thriller of the old Franco-American Northwest frontier, written in 1900 by Maurice Thompson. The illustrations are by F. C. Yohn
Frontispiece from The Treasure Train, by Arthur B. Reeve. The artist is uncredited, and I can't make out the signature, although it may say "Will Foster". Please leave a comment if you recognize him.
Update: It is Will Foster, I found out, thanks to this nifty signature bank.

Elsewhere on the web, Arthur B. Reeve is credited as having invented the first "scientific" hero of detective novels. I unfortunately can't find any information on who the illustrator of this cover is. If you know, please leave me a comment!
