THE RANGE AND RANCH CATTE [sic] BUSINESS OF THE UNITED STATES. [Contained in:] TREASURY DEPARTMENT. REPORT ON THE INTERNAL COMMERCE OF THE UNITED STATES...
Washington, 1885. 562pp. plus five folding maps. Original cloth, paper spine labels. Neatly rebacked, and text block expertly resewn. Bookplate of Larry McMurtry on front pastedown. Several maps with old adhesions. Light tanning. Very good. One of the primary sources on the western range cattle industry, and one of the so-called "big four" books of range cattle collecting. This is the preferred Treasury issue, generally considered the first. Nimmo, a skilled analyst, gathered a wealth of information on the cattle business, then at its pre-1886 blizzard height. "Contributed to by cattle experts, statistically documented, the unrivalled source for the period" - Howes. Containing all of the maps, which are often lacking, this copy is also from the collection of author and bibliophile Larry McMurtry, with his bookplate on the front pastedown. SIX SCORE 81. STREETER SALE 2377. ADAMS HERD 1674. HOWES N158, "aa."
