Cache la Poudre

NY: Orange Judd Company, 1905. 202pp, illus. Some of the tipped in illustrations have their corners creased, else very good. This the limited edition, one of 500 bound in "Indian Smoke tanned buckskin" with a fringe. The illustrations are by Schreyvogel, Deming and Fangel along with many documentary photographs. The text combines fiction with history; many of the photos are of real characters of the old west and cowboy life. There is much on Custer, and while fictional, Dustin comments "...there is a realism that does not offend." Dykes nominates it as a High Spot of Western Illustration (#36). The fringed leather binding is unusual and attractive. Herd 1596 "rare", Dustin 476, Howes M935. Item #26166

Price: $550.00
