Cincinnati: Tom Jones, 1909.

First American Edition. Softcover. Good. [32] pp (6 text, the rest panoramic illustrations from photographs), 5" x 13.23", oblong, string-tied wrappers. Some light soiling to upper corner of title page, otherwise internally very good, but with what appears to be pink, green, and white paint spilled on the front wrapper, several short tears in back wrapper. Tells the story of the sale of Montana rancher Michel Pablo's sale of his herd of buffalo to the Canadian government upon the breakup of the Flathead reservation where they grazed. The sale was conditional upon Pablo delivering the buffalo to Alberta, an arduous undertaking involving seventy-five cowboys, a two-month roundup, and a 52-hour journey by rail, scenes from which are shown here.
