× Ask a Question re: The Wilderness Hunter


    First edition, first issue of The Wilderness Hunter by Theodore Roosevelt.

    Octavo, xvi, 472pp. Publisher’s olive cloth, title in gilt on spine, title embossed on front cover in red. Light rubbing to the tips of the spine, faint toning, otherwise fine. Solid text block. Complete with frontispiece portrait and 23 full-page illustrations throughout text. Contains all first issue points, with appropriate headpieces in preface and page 469. The errata slip has been removed from this copy, but a remnant remains in the gutter before the frontispiece portrait. (Cole & Vail, A13a) An attractive example.

    This copy preceded the edition de luxe of The Wilderness Hunter, which was signed by Theodore Roosevelt. This trade edition was issued at $3.50, which sold out quickly. It was followed by five printings in 1893, including the edition de luxe.
