First edition. Adams, Herd 593: “Very rare.... One of the ‘big four’ cattle books. An important book on the history of the cattle industry, and no collector’s library would be complete without it.

The other half of the volume...provides one of the two or three best contemporary accounts of the history of the Texas cattle trade.” Campbell, 101 23. Dobie, p. 100: “In 1928 I traded a pair of store-bought boots to my uncle Neville Dobie for his copy of this book.
