Roosevelt, Theodore
Outdoor Pastimes of An American Hunter.
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1905. Signed limited edition of Roosevelt's classic work, one of 260 numbered copies signed by Theodore Roosevelt, this is number 23. Small quarto, original cloth, printed on ruisdael paper by the De Vinne Press, photogravure frontispiece of Roosevelt, illustrated throughout. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with some light expert restoration. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Exceptionally rare and desirable in the original dust jacket. "Like Audubon, William Elliott and Judge Caton, Roosevelt liked to chase deer with horses and hounds: 'To be able to ride through woods and over rough country at full speed, rifle or shotgun in hand, and then to leap off and shoot at a running object is to show that one has the qualities which made the cavalry of Forrest so formidable in the Civil War.' This volume also contains an excellent chapter on 'Books on Big Game' in which Roosevelt reveals his admiration for two other giants among deer hunters: Judge Caton and T.S. Van Dyke" (Wegner, 234). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books, ABAA/ ILAB [Palm Beach, FL, U.S.A.]
