The Cowboy, An Unconventional History of Civilization on the Old-Time Cattle Range

The Cowboy, An Unconventional History of Civilization on the Old-Time Cattle Range

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1936.

Hardcover. Near fine in a good dust jacket. Revised and enlarged edition. 402 pp, with index, illustrations from photographs. Light spotting to top edge of textblock, offsetting to two pages where a piece of newspaper was used as a bookmark; else fine. Dust jacket is sunned at the spine, lightly soiled, and has chipping and short tears, but is stil presentable in a new mylar cover. According to the jacket, this edition of this highly popular social history of cowboy life "has been greatly enlarged as concerns branding, roping, trail-driving, riding of bucking hores, social customs, technical terms, and old-time slang....Perhaps the most important feature, however, is the new illustrations drawn largely from equipment catalogs of cowboy days, showing saddles, spurs, chaps, and many other appurtenances of cowboy life."
