About This Item


First edition. 11" x 7 3/4". Illustrated with color frontispiece and 16 b/w full page drawings by Edward Borein and several vignettes. Two page introduction by Owen Wister. Original red stamped pictorial boards. No dust jacket. Very good. 76 pages.

With a large signed original detailed ink drawing by Borein of two cowboys on horseback, inscribed to Frank E. Bliss and dated 1927. Most original drawings by Borein in books tend to be much less detailed and smaller.

Borein (1872-1945) was a noted Western illustrator and painter. His cowboy drawings appeared in "Land of Sunshine" with encouragement by Charles F. Lummis.
