THE COWBOY AND HIS INTERPRETERS.
New York & London: D. Appleton & Co., 1926. ,287pp. Frontis. by Will James; 2 illustrations by Charles Russell and 18 by Joe de Yong. First edition. INSCRIBED “To Aunt May with love Douglas,” in what appears to the author’s handwriting. Externally, the spine is a bit dull; otherwise, very good. Internally, minor foxing mostly to the prelims. Overall, a very good copy. Reese, Six Score 12: “Branch was an easterner and not a rancher, but his work is considered an accurate and useful study. The best section of the book is a literary critique of western writers dealing with the range in fiction.” Adams, Six-Guns 259: “Scarce.” Dykes, Billy the Kid p.113. Adams Herd 306. Dobie, Life & Lit. p. 97. Yost & Renner A39. Howes B721.
