Seller ID 406-5160
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..."
