The Plains Of The Great West

by Dodge, Richard Irving, Col

Condition: Very Good+/Good-

NY: Archer House, 1959. Book. Very Good+. Hardcover. 5th or later Edition. Long before ebook/pdf and POD there was this, a facsimile reprint of the original 1877 book by Dodge. Thick, 452 page gray cloth hardcover with the grace of the old typefaces and illustrations. Unmarked but for neat prior owner name stamped FEP. Handsome, sturdy copy. Jacket is not a wreck, tears, chips though. We ship in new mylar wrappers for the jacketed books. Love the looks of these, the internals have the aged charm of long ago. From the cover "A prime sourcebook on the lore of the Old west and a fascinating account of a now vanished land.".
