This set is like new, never read. Slipcase is also like new. The leather title patch is lightly damaged, as were most, because of the design flaw of the shipping/packing box they were placed in. This set comes with its original shipping box. To help prevent further damage to the label I will not ship this set in the original box. Will ship it seperate. This is one of the finer Saddle Blanket sets we have had over the years and this is the first time we have had the set come in its original shipping carton. Extra shipping/insurance will be required.

About this Item: King Ranch, Kingsville, TX, 1957. Saddle Bag. Condition: Very Good. First edition. FIRST EDITION, SPECIAL LIMITED "SADDLE BLANKET ISSUE" produced exclusively for the King Ranch; one of 3000 copies printed, none intended for sale. One of the most important books on the history of Texas. Illustrated throughout. "The two volumes of this work [The King Ranch] will be a lasting pleasure to own. That is, indeed a most inadequate understatement? The heart of the matter is, of course, the writing itself--the thing told and the way of telling. In this work the illustrations are a part of the telling, for they are the product of the same hand that has done most of the writing, Tom Lea's? In the case of The King Ranch the worth of the story and its double telling has been matched by the taste and skill of famed Southwestern book designer J. Carl Hertzog, and El Paso Rosanin, and by the finest efforts of printer and binder. The product as a whole is one rarely matched in the whole history of American publishing--indeed a work one can be proud, in every sense, to own" (John T. Frederick, The Rotarian). Kingsville, TX: Printed for the King Ranch, 1957. Octavo, original tan and brown heavy crash linen in the design of the saddle blankets woven and used on the King Ranch. Two volumes in original slipcase.Handsome presentation inscription (1957) on flyleaf. Vol I hinge with paper split (but holding), wear to edges on leather label on box (as usual due to the softness of the leather). An exquisite production. Seller Inventory # 1642
