     Centennial edition, limited edition (600 copies) of preceding, from the 4-O-Imprint series of TCU. This edition is more extensive than the first, restoring some 11,000 words deleted in order to minimize publication costs of the 1933 edition, which appeared during the Depression.  Only two of the eleven photographs in this edition also appear in the 1933 edition. Photographer William Soule sent his negatives to his brother John in Boston, who sold individual prints as well as gathering them into albums. The images in this Centennial edition are taken from an album in the collection of the University of Texas at Austin.  This book exhibits the inspired design and printing art of W. Thomas Taylor.  ($100-200)
