Description:
"The most desired and desirable book on the range cattle industry"
[James W. Freeman, editor]. Prose and Poetry of the Livestock Industry of the United States. With Outlines of the Origin and Ancient History of Our Livestock Animals. Volume 1. Illustrated. Prepared by the Authority of the National Live Stock Association. Denver and Kansas City: Published by the National Live Stock Historical Association [Franklin Hudson Publishing Company, 1905]. First edition. 4to. 757pp. Numerous illustrations. Later binding of plain beige reinforced paper. Approximately two-thirds of the original black morocco front cover is laid in, this copy originally issued to W. H. Collyns, with his name stamped in gold on the cover remnant. Mild toning to text. Noticeable marginal dampstaining throughout, with molding to the text from page 618 onward, more pronounced towards the terminal pages where it affects some text near the upper corners. Minor marginal paper loss toward the terminal pages, not affecting the text. Despite the flaws, a generally very good copy of a book rarely found, period.

"The most desired and desirable book on the range cattle industry. This book contains an incredible collection of information on men and events concerned with cattle. This volume is the only one of the three projected that was ever published, since its publication bankrupted the printing company and nearly broke the association...A chance to acquire the first edition rarely comes along" (Reese, Six Score 41).
