About This Item

New York: The Century Company, 1899. Early printing of Roosevelt's fascinating account of the West. Quarto, original illustrated cloth, top edge gilt with others uncut. Profusely illustrated by Frederic Remington. Near fine in the original dust jacket which is in very good condition. Exceptionally rare in the original dust jacket. Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail is a detailed, wide-ranging look at life in western America by the future president from his ranch on the Little Missouri, covering the range, the ranch, the round-up and much more. Combines the talents of two of the most important chroniclers of the early American west. Frederic Remington was "the most successful Western illustrator in the 'Golden Age' of illustration at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, so much so that the other Western artists such as Charles Russell and Charles Schreyvogel were known during Remington's life as members of the 'School of Remington" (Samuels, ix). This is the second in Roosevelt's series of four books on ranching and hunting.
