Western Artist Edward Borein Illustrates Charles Russell's Trails Plowed Under
CHARLES M. RUSSELL (1864-1926). Russell was one of the best-known artists of the American West who painted cowboys, Native Americans and wildlife. EDWARD BOREIN (1872-1945). Borein was an American illustrator and painter who specialized in Western scenes, including the Old West, Mexico and Spanish California. He was friends with Russell. A first edition Trails Plowed Under, authored by Charles M. Russell, with an original, full page pen and ink sketch by Edward Borein. On the front free endpaper, Borein illustrated in 1927 a mounted cowboy on a hillside, silhouetted against the sky. The book, printed in 1927 by Doubleday, Page & Company in 1927, is bound in red buckram and housed in a brown cloth covered slip case. The inside front cover has a Christmas 1927 inscription to Nancy, and Russell's wife was named Nancy (it could possibly be inscribed to Mrs. Russell, but I cannot guarantee it). There are five color plates and five half-tone illustrations. A fine illustrated Western art book.
