The Rocky Mountains : Third Volume in the American Mountain Series, Atwood, Wallace W.
1 Atwood, Wallace W. The Rocky Mountains : Third Volume in the American Mountain Series
New York Vanguard Press 1945 First Edition Cloth SIGNED by the Author
[1945]. Very Good+ in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Bound in full beige cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in red and black. Octavo. Brown topstain and beige endpapers. 324pps., with numerous photos and illustrations and a fold-out map. There is a modest amount of dustspotting to the cloth, otherwise clean, bright, square, and soundly bound; the pages are unaffected by said spotting. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has light touches of rubbing and soiling and a small (1/4") tear at the top of the front panel; the original price (3.75) is intact. Nicely SIGNED and inscribed by the noted geologist, geographer, and educator, in his florid script, to the original owner on the title-page. ".This is more than a book. It is a memorable, exciting adventure -- an adventure for the amateur naturalist, for the armchair traveler, and for every lover of our mountain ranges and the great American West. In this beautifully illustrated volume, Dr. Atwood, President of Clark University and the foremost authority on the Rocky Mountains, tells the story of our most magnificent mountain area with its many-hued gorges, its snow-capped peaks, its glaciers, and its awe-inspiring scenery. 'The Rocky Mountains' takes the reader on an exhilarating camping trip -- one which he will not soon forget. During the day, he climbs on horseback through the high mountains, breathing champagne air and learning the incredible story of the origin and growth of the Rockies. In the evening, around the campfire with cowhands and members of the exploring party, he hears tales of the first white settlers, of the free and easy mining days, of the ranchmen who form the backbone of our western people today. As he turns in to warm blankets he will sense the grandeur of the towering rock peaks stabbing the sky around him, reaching toward the stars."

"...Don Grier was a boy when he set out on the long journey through the wilderness with a brutal and vindictive taskmaster. Three months later, when the two finally reached Chalmer's Creek, the ordeal had given Don the toughness and the fighting skills of a man. He would need them both, he soon found out, if he was to survive the gunman's bullets and find the truth about his father's shameful death. Treacherous enemies waited for him in the brawling mining town, and Don had to play the dangerous double role of hunter and hunted.
Here, in an action-packed, swift-moving story, the reader will enjoy Max Brand at his best..."

Incidents of Travel in New Mexico , Brewerton, George D.
4 Brewerton, George D. Incidents of Travel in New Mexico
Ashland Lewis Osborne 1969 Limited Edition 
Fine in the publisher's full beige buckram. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in gilt. Quarto. Map-endpapers of 'The Western Territories in The Forties.' 74pps., with numerous woodcut illustrations and a colophon. No dustjacket, as issued. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. No reading wear and no previous ownership markings. Includes an Introduction and Commentary by Ferol Egan. This edition was limited to 1,400 copies of which this is Number 10. Included with this book is a copy of 'Harper's New Monthly Magazine' (No. XLVII, April 1854) in which Brewerton's journal was originally published. This magazine is in Good condition: it has a separated front cover, considerable wear to the spine, a number of creased page-corners, and sporadic foxing. All pages are, nonetheless, present and quite legible. There are a number of other articles and stories in the magazine, including chapters from a novel by Thackeray. Sold together, book and magazine: a nice matching of an intriguing historical document.

"...Not quite twenty-one, trained in the art of military science, accustomed to the amenities of the Eastern seaboard, Lieutenant George Douglas Brewerton was not the type one would picture in a frontier setting. Yet because he was part of the American Army of occupation in California, the course of his life was suddenly changed by a command from Colonel Richard B. Mason, the Military Governor of California. The orders: accompany Kit Carson and his dispatch-bearing party as far east as Independence, Missouri; then head south to Mississippi and report for duty with the First United States Infantry.
Here was the beginning of a muleback ride into history. It started on a warm day in May, 1848. The men rode out of the pueblo of Los Angeles and hit the Old Spanish Trail to Santa Fe. For the 38-year-old Kit Carson -- mountain man, Indian fighter, guide, courier, and a legend in his own lifetime -- this was only another overland trip with a pouch of dispatches; but it did offer the bonus of a stopover in Taos to spend a few days with his wife. For young Brewerton, it was a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, an experience he never forgot..."

Indian Painters & White Patrons , Brody, J. J.
5 Brody, J. J. Indian Painters & White Patrons
Albuquerque University of New Mexico 1971 First Edition, First Printing 
Near Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Fully-bound in ivory cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in red. Quarto. Red endpapers. 238pps., with eight full-color plates, 92 black-and-white illustrations, and two maps. There is a light touch of dustspotting atop the textblock. Also, the original owner's nameplate is neatly affixed to the front pastedown. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Absolutely no reading wear.

The original price of $15.00 is intact on the front flap. Overall a very nice copy of this scarce issue.

'...In this major work of criticism in art and social history, Dr. Brody demonstrates that modern Indian painting has been, until 1962, not a truly native expression derived from aboriginal forms but merely a passive response to White paternalism. He deflates the notion that this is a true primitive art form and presents a much needed chronology of the relationship between Indian and White in the revival of an Indian art form in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It has been, according to Dr. Brody, an art produced by Indians for Whites, an invention rather than a revival, with little or no relationship to earlier pictorial modes and functions among the Indians...'

Two For Texas, Burke, James Lee
6 Burke, James Lee Two For Texas
California James Cahill Publishing 1992 First Edition Hard Cover Servello, Joe SIGNED
Fine in a Fine slipcase. Tan cloth boards quarterbound in brown leather. The spine is gilt-stamped. Tan endpapers. 139pps., plus numerous illustrations. Stated First Hardcover Edition. No dustjacket, as issued. A flawless collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The slipcase, of the same tan cloth, is equally splendid. This is #351 of 400 copies SIGNED by both the author and the illustrator.

"As I tried to recreate Sam Houston's retreat from the Guadalupe River toward the San Jacinto Basin, I discovered inconsistencies that made no sense. Houston knew the Alamo had just been destroyed in San Antonio seventy miles away and that Santa Anna, with perhaps six-thousand troops, was marching toward Houston's position. Houston had only a few hundred ill-equipped and poorly disciplined men under his command, and it is only reasonable to think that he should have fled eastward immediately before he was encircled and destroyed, as Bowie, Travis, and Crockett had been at San Antonio. Instead, he delayed his retreat for twenty-four hours. In my reading I became fascinated with the historical players in the story. Revisionists sometimes take a pleasure, it seems, in denigrating the lives or deeds of those who become emblematic of what is best in us. But the story of the Alamo is one of inalterable fact. One-hundred eighty-eight Texans held off six-thousand enemy troops for 13 days. Houston sent a letter to Travis and Bowie telling them that no help would be forthcoming; however, they never faltered, never considered surrender, and instead gave their lives to the last man in order to delay Santa Anna's advance into east Texas. In fact, a group of twenty or so volunteers made their way through Mexican lines to join those inside the Alamo, knowing that their lives were automatically forfeit." -- from the author's Introduction.

What the golden fleece was to the Greeks and El Dorado to South America, these lost mines have been to that section of the United States once owned by Spain. The story of these mines is a cycle made up of a thousand thrilling tales.tales involving roaming cowboys, rangers, pirates, miners and outlaws, as well as preachers and doctors, earth-treading farmers and gold-thirsty women."

The Book of the American Indian , Garland, Hamlin
11 Garland, Hamlin The Book of the American Indian
New York Harper & Brothers 1923 Remington, Frederic 
Very Good+ in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Brown boards quarterbound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt; the decorative front panel, black-printed, has a paste-on label of an Indian brave. Quarto. Yellow topstain. 274pps., with numerous illustrations by the artist with three of the plates being in full-color. Early printing: 1923 (the same year of the first edition ) on the title-page, L-X on the copyright page). There is superficial insect damage near the top of the front joint and bumping to the upper tips which has caused the top corner of the textblock to be slightly crimped. Also, a previous owner's name has been neatly penned on the ffep. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has modest chipping at the extremities and light wear along the top-edge; the Remington paste-on illustration is in fine, colorful condition. A very nice copy -- uncommon in jacket and in so nice a jacket -- for the Remington enthusiast.

"...Hamlin Garland and Frederic Remington enjoyed long years of friendly association with the Indians of the West. Few men living know the Red Men of our plains and mountains better than Hamlin Garland. His stories here are both humorous and dramatic and all have the value of sketches from life. Frederic Remington's pictures, of which three are in color, are a fitting accompaniment for the stories. They are not so much illustrations of the text as an independent and parallel interpretation. The book is a memorial of the Indian by two men who knew and loved him..."

Also, the board bottoms are mildly worn. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has a 1/2" chip at the head of the spine and a few closed edge-tears and crinkles; the original price (2.50) is intact.

"Linc Bradway had to prove himself when he came to the rip-roaring Wyoming town of South Pass. The tall, gray-eyed cowboy had a grim errand -- to clear up the mystery surrounding the death of his partner, Jimmy Weston. A few hours after his arrival, Linc, one of the fastest men at the draw of all Zane Grey's western heroes, had given convincing proof of himself at the poker table and with his sixguns. The demonstration was enough to win him the hate of the gambler Emery and his gang, and the love of Kit Bandon, the fascinating and fabulous 'Maverick Queen' who had a weakness for handsome cowboys. And Linc also found himself in dead center of one of the hottest range wars ever to flare up before the law moved out to western Wyoming."

New York Grosset & Dunlap Cloth

There is very mild bumping to the spine-ends. The pages are slightly and uniformly yellowed. Otherwise clean, tight, and square. All tips are sharp.

".Up and up from the desert below sped the hunt for Panguitch, greatest and most sought after wild stallion. But Panguitch was more than a horse; to a man he was the symbol of all adventure, and to a girl the symbol of her romance. The pursuit of Panguitch, then, was fraught with meaning for both. Zane Grey has never created so attractive a heroine as this girl, who, with her father and a resolute party, sets forth to conquer Wild Horse Mesa. The intrigues of an outlaw who found his way into the camp, the fine devotion of two brothers; the stirring account of the capture of a herd; and then, finally, the last stand of Panguitch and the smashing events which bring the story to a conclusion -- make this perhaps the best romance Zane Grey has written."

Boston Fields, Osgood & Co. 1871 Cloth 
Good+ in the publisher's pebbled maroon cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt; both the front and rear boards are blind-ruled. Chocolate-brown endpapers. 256pps. 2nd edition, with "Brown of Calaveras" added. There is modest rubbing to the board-edges and the spine is a bit sunned. There is, also, an 1" split at the top of the rear joint, likely testament to insect damage. Internally, the ffep has become detached (it is laid in) and has a chip in its upper corner. The original owner's signature, dated Feb. 1871, is near the top of the title-page. The binding is a bit brittle, though sound. The text is clean and bright, overall, with only the light and sporadic instance of foxing. A flawed, though -- at the least -- a nice reading copy of this old volume of stories and sketches.

"...The 'Oregon' was the famed river of the West in men's imagination, but when it was finally seen by white men, in 1792, it was named for the Columbia, first ship to come in over the bar, commanded by Captain Robert Gray. It was not until 1805 that Lewis and Clark's famous expedition reached the river, opening the area to a vast flood of American settlers, which eventually insured that by and large the Columbia would belong to the United States. The river rises in Canada, the British Captain Vancouver came soon after Gray, and among the earliest explorers was David Thompson of the Northwest Company of Montreal. But in the long run, the fur forts of the Nor'westers and the Hudson's Bay Company became less important than the people who came to stay -- to farm, fish or work in timber. West of the Cascade Mountains, the 'Oregon Country' was a paradise of incredibly rich farmland, huge fir forests, endless salmon, and the story of the Columbia is inevitably one of lumbering, canning, steamboats and railroads. Recently, great dams have changed the face of the desert country east of the mountains, and a whole new chapter has been added to the colorful history of this majestic river. But above all it is the story of the people -- big and small -- who faced a new, tremendous country and made it their own."
