About this Item

Introduction by Struthers Burt. Illustrations by William Moyers. Bevelled cloth, leather spine and title labels, slipcase, a fine copy. Signed by Moyers. Publication notices laid loose. Reprint edition. Limited to 1,500 copies, this is copy number 444. A fine press edition and in my opinion, an integral version to collect with the original and with the 1911 edition illustrated by Russell and Remington. Six Score 116: "Although a novel, this book probably created more impressions of what a cowboy was like - even among cowboys - than any other work, fact or fiction. Its popularity is attested to by sales of over two million copies. Whether totally accurate or not, it is absorbing reading." Merrill's Aristocrats. Dobie p. 124: "Wister was an outsider looking in. His hero, 'The Virginian,' is a cowboy without cows - like the cowboys of Eugene Manlove Rhodes; but this hero does not even smell of cows, whereas Rhodes's men do. Nevertheless, the novel authentically realizes the code of the range, and it makes such absorbing reading." Dobie/Dykes 44. Graff 4725. Bookseller Inventory # 943
