Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1952. Illustrations by Charles Banks Wilson. Original red and white colt hide with the hair out, morocco spine label lettered in gilt, t.e.g. Light rubbing near one corner, else fine. In publisher's pictorial cloth slipcase. The very rare "Pinto edition," limited to 100 numbered copies signed by Dobie and Wilson, with an original ink and wash drawing of a bucking bronco by Wilson tipped-in opposite the limitation page. This is the rarest of Dobie's many books, and perhaps the most desirable copy in the run, designated as number "A" on the limitation page, and thus the first copy retained by either the author or the publisher. Copy "B" was inscribed and signed by Dobie to Carl Hertzog, and sold in 2001 by Dorothy Sloan. "Certainly the best book on range horses, with much on cattle work. Dobie drew on previously published material from TALES OF THE MUSTANG (1936) and MUSTANGS AND COW HORSES (1940). Many feel this to be one of Dobie's best books. Dobie says, 'The author has tried to blend vividness with learning.'" - SIX-SCORE. SIX-SCORE 33. ADAMS HERD 696. DOBIE, pp.132,151. GRAFF 1100. McVICKER A14a(1). DANIEL 14. 44&44 66. DYKES, MY DOBIE COLLECTION, p.7. REESE, BEST OF THE WEST 250 (note).
