About This Item

New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1893. Signed limited first edition, one of only 200 numbered copies, signed by Theodore Roosevelt. Quarto, original cloth, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front panel. Frontispiece plus twenty-three full page plates by Frederic Remington, A. B. Frost I, James Carter Beard, Henry Sandham, and Charles Henry Eaton. In very good condition with some light toning to the extremities. Scarce and desirable. When his first wife died in 1884, Theodore Roosevelt withdrew to his cattle ranch in western Dakota. There, he wrote Hunting Trips of a Ranchman (1885) and Thomas Hart Benton (1887) and began work on The Winning of the West (1889). He also penned this account of big-game hunting in the United States, with chapters on hunting lore, hunting with hounds, hunting the grizzly, and hunting from the ranch.
