Emily Ellsworth Ford Skeel
New York: 1929. All three volumes were printed and bound by The Plimpton Press in a beautiful tan, blue and brick paper with tan cloth spines and a leather text block on the spine. There is some rubbing on the corners and the leather is oxidized with some chipping. Volume I is the bibliography and this copy is inscribed by the editor Emily Ellsworth to her sister on the ffep. This is #67 of 200. All of the interiors are spotless. Volume II has an actual piece of Parson Weems writing tipped-in up front. Three hundred copies of II and III were printed and this set is #45 and signed. Mason Locke Weems (October 11, 1759 - May 23, 1825), usually referred to as Parson Weems, was an American book agent and author who wrote the first biography of George Washington immediately after his death. He was the source of some of the apocryphal stories about Washington. The tale of the cherry tree ("I cannot tell a lie, I did it with my little hatchet") is included in the fifth edition of The Life of Washington (1809 imprint, originally published 1800), a bestseller that depicted Washington's virtues and was intended to provide a morally instructive tale for the youth of the young nation.

Chicago, The Lakeside Press, copyright 1929 by Capital Reservation Lands Chicago. Hardcover, no dust jacket, illustrated, original green cloth boards with gilt lettering. No marks with the exception of an inscription which is on the cover page along with a notation from the owner's wife. The binding is tight and in good condition, the text is clean. The book includes 64 illustrations, most of which are photographs, plus a fold out map of the XIT Ranchland. There is an introduction by John V. Farwell and an acknowledgment by Haley crediting Farwell with his assistance in writing the book. It has been said the original book was the author's first book and is considered the best book about a Texas ranch and that a lawsuit required most of the original editon to be recalled and suppressed so the remaining true first edition are quite scarce. The inscription says "To mi amigo viejo, Tom Talle, L.A. Hughes." L.A. Hughes was the President of First National Bank of Santa Fe, New Mexico at the time. Tom Talle had been the Sheriff in McKinley County, in the Territory of New Mexico, before New Mexico achieved statehood and was at one time one of the biggest cattle owners in the United States.
