Book Description Doubleday & Company, Garden City, New York, 1949. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good Plus. Jo Mora (illustrator). 1st Edition. Stated First Edition. This 68-year-old book is in wonderful condition. You can take a look at the photographs. The covers are very clean. They show very little wear, just a little bit of rubbing at the spine ends and corners. The gilt lettering on the spine it is no doubt less bright than when it was first published, but it is not worn at all and still very legible. This book is also very solidly bound, absolutely no issues in that regard. The pages are also very clean. Scrolling through them, I saw only one speck-sized stain at the bottom edge of one page. They are also in excellent condition. I didn't see any creasing or dogeared corners. I did see one very tiny tear (with a scuff) off the edge of the 'Books by Jo Mora' page. The illustrations all appear to be in perfect condition. There are a good many of them, most full-page. Also, no one has written their name or anything else anywhere in the book. And there aren't any markings or attachments. This is NOT an ex-library book. The page edges, by the way, do not have any soiling or staining. That's not something you would expect with a 68-year-old book. 'Joseph Jacinto "Jo" Mora was a Uruguayan-born American cartoonist, illustrator and cowboy, who lived with the Hopi and wrote extensively about his experiences in California. He was an artist-historian, sculptor, painter, photographer, illustrator, muralist and author. He has been called the "Renaissance Man of the West". Mora died October 10, 1947, in Monterey, California. His last book, Californios, which was devoted to the life of the rancheros of Alta California, was published posthumously in New York City to great acclaim.'. Bookseller Inventory # 001308
