    More Information:

    Frederic Remington. John Ermine of the Yellowstone. New York: Macmillan, 1902. First edition, first issue. Association copy. Inscribed by Remington on the front free endpaper: To "Eddie" Kemble/Who knows how hard/This etching thing's apt [?] by hand is/and whose generous soul will/leap over the bad places./Frederic Remington./New Rochelle. N.Y/Nov. 15.1902". Additionally inscribed by Remington at the bottom of the frontispiece (most likely supplied from another copy): "How could this be if it wasn't for/Eddie Kemble-/F.R.-". Octavo. [2, blank], [viii], 271, [2, blank], [4, ads] pages. With frontispiece and numerous plates inserted throughout. Publisher's first issue binding (Remington's name is misspelled on the spine) of full brown cloth, front board and spine stamped in white. Spine a bit sunned; binding somewhat edgeworn; some soiling (and a dime-sized scuff-mark) on the rear board; first and last gutters cracking; frontispiece (placed before the first blank) chipped and edgeworn; text and plates foxed; paperclip markings on frontispiece and first few leaves. Overall, a good copy with an excellent association. Housed in cloth clamshell case. "Eddie" Kemble is E. W. Kemble, one of the most prominent illustrators of the time - today, his is perhaps best known as the illustrator of the first edition of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. From the James C. Seacrest Collection.
