Pictured by Frederic Remington. New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1923. Original paper-covered boards with pictorial onlay, with brown cloth spine.
First Edition of this sizeable volume (over 12 inches tall) of Native American tales by Hamlin Garland -- profusely illustrated with 35 full-page plates by Frederic Remington -- of which three are in color. Most of these illustrations had appeared in Harper's Weekly or in Harper's Magazine during the 1890s; some of them had subsequently appeared in novels by other authors, as well.~This copy is from the first printing, with the appropriate (December 1923) Harper date-code on the copyright page. It is in FINE condition, with the exception of a few small holes in the cloth joints -- a common problem with this hefty book. Included is the scarce brown-paper dust jacket, on which is affixed the same color plate that appears at p. 116; the jacket is FINE except for being price-clipped. Item #13627
