The Century Co, New York 1888 - Second issue in the brown cloth binding with gilt stamping and beveled boards, all page edges gilt. A solid Near Fine copy with only the most trivial wear at the spine ends and previous ownership markings on the front end paper. A Good only dust jacket with large chips from the spine ends (approx. 1.5 - 2" deep), a few tears at the flap folds (professionally closed), age toning as expected, but a complete and rather uncommon early dust jacket. The first major work illustrated by Frederick Remington, who up until that point had only sketched for magazines. Remington would go on to become one of the most prominent artists of the American West. The book is based on Roosevelt's experiences ranching in the Dakota Badlands during the cattle boom of the 1880s. The book documents his everyday routine, herding, hunting and working the ranch, as well as his extraordinary exploits such as the capture of three outlaws and guarding them for 40 straight hours without sleep, while transporting them to trial. A fantastic early account of western life by an American icon and one closely associated with the tough western lifestyle. Very Good. [Attributes: First Edition]
