About this Item

Quarto, gilt-stamped titles & full calf. 1,297pp. Index. Rear leaf has two lists: "Population of Counties and Reservations in Oklahoma", and "Cities and Villages in Oklahoma having a population of over 100." Book is subtitled: "Commemorating the achievements of citizens who have contributed to the progress of Oklahoma and the development of its resources." Approximately 1,000 entries with bio & varying amounts of interesting genealogical information on politicians, city builders, ranchers, settlers, professors, priests & pastors, federal & territorial officers, doctors, etc. Former owner's name, Mrs. A.W. Husby (?), written in ink along Preface gutter. Frontispiece is a fine engraving of Major Gordon W. Lillie, "Pawnee Bill". Six page introduction, "The Opening of Oklahoma." Noteworthy entries that also have portraits (most entries do not have portraits) include: W. E. Malaley (full portrait, holding a rifle), the frontiersman & cowman who found the murdered Pat Hennessey, , Deputy U.S. Marshals William D. Fossett & Charles Colcord (City Police Chief of OKC). Some husband/wife couples, family portraits, & a couple portraits of women are included. Women include Nettie Reppeto, proprietor of the Royal Hotel in Guthrie. Residences are pictured, as well. Text entries are at least one full column & usually more. Only a few Indians are represented. There is an entry (but no portrait) of the famous photographer William S. Prettyman. Also, Dr. Jesse Mooney (who attended Belle Starr), & many other people well known at the time, especially in their own localities. This copy rebacked with 3/4 of original spine present. Covers moderately scuffed -- the leather is in very good condition & has been properly treated. The floral endpapers are chipped along the edges (we declined putting in new endpapers when the book was professionally restored). Archival reinforcement tape near the gutter. Several pages (toward the front & back) have minor chipping or very short edge tears, most of which have been archivally closed. This book is now in very good condition for regular use. There is a wealth of material in this heavy volume. It's rare. Oversized. Bookseller Inventory # 0711050
