New York: Continental Publishing, 1897. New York: Continental Publishing, 1897. 229p. Warmly inscribed: "to Uncle Rob [Robert P. Maynard] with best wishes, from Maynard, March 7, 1897." (his first wife before he married Dorthea Lange was a Maynard). Illustrated by Maynard Dixon. In addition to his 9 illustrations, he also designed various devices and head pieces. Besides being a superb copy, this copy also has a later box obviously to preserve and protect it. A small biography pastedown on half title page painted ca. 1920-1930. Dixon was commissioned to illustrate this work by the publisher (his first book after magazine illustrations). It includes the white gouache "But There Was No Water" (see, Hagerty, The Life and Art of Maynard Dixon, p. 16). It was this work that brought him to national attention. The decorative cloth binding shows an Indian chief portrayed with a deep reddish brown face. A lovely copy. Nearly fine... Illus. by Maynard Dixon. Small Octavo.
