    Description

    Theodore Roosevelt: "Winning of the West" 1900 RNC Special Edition. Four volume set of "The Winning of the West" published by G. P. Putnam's Sons of New York in 1900. Inscribed the "Allegheny Edition" by the publisher, it was issued to commemorate the Republican National Convention held in Philadelphia at which Theodore Roosevelt was unanimously nominated as the Vice Presidential nominee. It is so indicated on the title page of the first volume and inscribed with the name of the owner, M. E. Shryver, a convention delegate. Since that time, the set has been termed the "Convention Edition". TR was an ardent outdoorsman and wrote various works on the American West, after a brief stint as a rancher in Montana. He also was instrumental in conservation efforts and the establishment of the National Park Service. The tops of the pages are gilded while the two remaining sides are deckled. The set is bound in cloth with some light fading and shelf wear. Overall, a fine set. It is sold together with an 8-page pamphlet of TR's speech at the New York State Republican Convention in Saratoga.
