Very nice, clean oversized book measuring 10"x12-1/2" with nice decoration at face and spine and no cracking to hinges, either front or back. Book is tighly bound and shows little external wear. Inside is also quite nice with the exception of the front endpapers which show a band of toning at top and a few spots at front free endpaper in the same area. There is a very handsome leaflet from the publisher laid-in designed in the same style as the book. This, too, is nice with the exception of a few spots to top front and some evidence of bygone silverfish due to removal of top layer of paper at a small area of bottom front. Text is a history in verse of the cow-punchers, prospectors, scouts, Texas Rangers, Mexicans, ranchers, trappers and eveyrone else who made the Old West. Illustrated with over 1300 drawings. Book concludes with a range dictionary of 17 pages. Publisher's print run was limited to 1100 copies, 200 of which were bound in cowhide, branded, and decorated. This one is the regular edition and is bound in sturdy black buckram.
