    In a Deluxe Binding with Original Drawings and Inscribed by Remington

    Frederic Remington. Pony Tracks - Inscribed and annotated by Remington, and with several excellent original drawings. New York: Harper Brothers, [1895].

    First edition of Remington's first book. This copy is inscribed by Remington to David Pell Secor: "To my friend / David Pell Secor / from / Frederic Remington. / who no doubt will find that I have / 'cut his trail' in some of my / rambles." Remington has added four original ink drawings in the book, including a fine large drawing of an Indian scout on the front fly opposite the inscription. He has added a note "The Cheyenne warriors called me 'Long Spur' / Remington" at the base of page 48, two original ink drawings at pages 108-109 and an original tailpiece at page 269. His bookplate is affixed to the second front fly. Octavo. 269 pages.

    Bound in the rare full publisher's brown pictorial leather (Dykes had heard of this binding, but had never seen one). Short clean splits at the upper and lower joints and the rear hinge cracked but sound. Still a near fine copy of this rare and very fragile binding. Preserved in a custom morocco-edged slipcase. A unique copy of a rare issue with a fine association.

    David Pell Secor (1824 - 1909) a native of Brooklyn, was a respected landscape and wildlife artist and art critic. He served as an art judge for the Louisiana and Columbia Expositions, and his work hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He donated to The Bridgeport Scientific Society one of the finest collections of Indian relics in the country.
