Burroughs, John. [Theodore Roosevelt]
Camping & Tramping With Roosevelt.
Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1907. First edition of Burroughs' classic memoir of his travels with close personal friend and fellow naturalist Theodore Roosevelt. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated. Signed by Theodore Roosevelt on the second free endpaper, "With the best wishes of Theodore Roosevelt Dec. 1916." With an autograph letter signed and entirely in the hand of Burroughs tipped in which reads, "West Park N.Y. Nov. 8, 1885 Dear Sir, Few authors mind the trouble it takes to give an autograph, but most authors do mind the trouble it takes to write a note to accompany it & I am no exception to the rule, I cannot tell you where you can get an autograph of Bryant. Very Respectfully, John Burroughs." In fine condition. From the Theodore Roosevelt Library of Walter Merriam Pratt with his bookplate to the pastedown. A very sharp example of this uncommon title. Exceptionally rare signed by Roosevelt. American naturalist and conservationist John Burroughs accompanied many personalities on vagabond trips throughout the country, including Theodore Roosevelt, John Muir, Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, and Thomas Edison. In this collection of sketches, he affectionately recounts the several visits he and Roosevelt made to the sites of future national parks, notably Yellowstone, Glacier Point, and Yosemite.
