What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Leather Binding

The first edition of this work.

Bookplate to the front pastedown of R D Jackson. 

Written by Windham Thomas Wyndham-Quin, the 4th Earl of Dunraven and Mount-Earl. He served as Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies under Lord Salisbury. He claimed 15,000 acres in Colorado, determined to make the area a game park.  This work follows his second visit to the American west, the very same trip that inspired him to turn the Estes Park, Colorado into a game preserve for the exclusive use of himself and his British and Irish friends. 

Illustrated, by Valentine W Bromley. Bromley was a British artist from a well known family of artists. He was a frequent art correspondent for the Illustrated London News. 

With a frontispiece, illustrated title page, fourteen plates and two large folding maps. 

Collated complete. 

Several light tidemarks to the plates, with the text remaining extremely bright. 

A very smartly bound copy of this work.

Condition

In a full calf binding, with gilt stamping to the spine. Externally, very smart, with a few patches of light shelfwear to the joints and extremities. Bookplate to the front pastedown, R D Jackson. Internally, firmly bound. The 'Map of the Upper and Lower Geyser Basins' has a tape repair at the joint and a small closed tear to another fold. Tidemarks to all plates, heavier to the plates at pages  336 and 357. Pages are very bright. Just the odd spot to pages.

Very Good
