1440. [DAVIS, WILLIAM HEATH]. The Following Are the Reviews of the San Francisco and Alameda County Newspapers, Favorable As to the Merit of the “Sixty Years in California,” As a History; Also the Actions of the State Board of Education, and the Board of Education of Alameda County, All of Which Is Respectfully Submitted by the Author. [N.p., 1890]. 29 pp. 12mo, original tan printed wrappers. Wraps lightly soiled and foxed, split at spine, and lower corner of upper cover chipped and repaired with tape, internally clean, a very good though fragile copy, with ephemera laid in (review of Rolle’s biography of William Heath Davis with Streeter’s pencil notes indicating source and date of 1957, along with a slip of paper with a Pony Express Green backstamp “Pony Express The Central Overlander California & Pikes Peak Express Company Jan 20 St. Joseph, Mo” with an old typed note of explanation). Scarce Zamorano 80 ephemera.
     First separate printing. Cowan p. 160. Among the reviews is one from the San Francisco News Letter, May 25, 1889, stating: “Mr. Davis also gives an insight into the cattle business of the country, and speaks without any comment upon the killing of 2,000 cattle at the Mission San José for their hides and tallow. No one at this time had any idea that California had any agricultural possibilities. All the Californians cared for were horses; and in their bands of fine horses they took great pride. To ride after stock, hunt the bear, and fill up the evening hours with dance and song, was the attitude of the early Californian’s ambition.” $175.00

1441. DAVIS, William Heath. Seventy-Five Years in California: Recollections and Remarks by One Who Visited These Shores in 1831, and Again in 1833, and Except When Absent on Business Was a Resident from 1838 until the End of a Long Life in 1909.

Percey). 8vo, original brown blind-embossed cloth, gilt-lettered spine. Light shelf wear, endpapers darkened, occasional mild foxing (mainly confined to first and last leaves), overall very good to fine.
     First edition of one of the earliest full-length books on New Mexico in English (the copyright notice on title verso is dated 1856, but this 1857 imprint is the first edition). Campbell, p. 104. Dobie, p. 76: “Excellent on manners and customs.” Dykes, Western High Spots, p. 12 (“Western Movement—Its Literature”). Graff 1021. Howes D139. Laird, Hopi 536.

     Davis, a U.S. Attorney and later acting governor of New Mexico, was one of the first writers to gain access to the archives in Santa Fe. His account of early New Mexico includes much incidental information on sheep grazing and cattle raising across the region, and chapter 8 (“Manners and Customs of the People—Continued”) describes skills and sports of the vaqueros (e.g., el coleo, the lazo, etc.); minute description of costume of the mounted caballero, saddles, horse equipage, horsemanship, brands and branding, etc.; upland grazing grounds (“the pasturage of New Mexico excels every other branch of agriculture”); local practices with cattle, sheep, and goats; etc. Davis describes various ranches he visited on his law circuit, such as the Crabb Ranch near Las Cruces, whose stock had just been stolen by Mescalero Apaches. Davis includes good material on El Paso. At the end is a sixty-word vocabulary of Navajo and English. $350.00


Photogravures of Big Bend

1443. DAVIS MOUNTAIN FEDERATION OF WOMEN’S CLUBS. The Big Bend of Texas [wrapper title]. [Brooklyn: Albertype, ca. 1928]. [80] pp., numerous sepia-tone photogravures. Oblong 16mo, original cream printed wrappers with photograph of Fort Davis on upper wrapper, map on lower wrapper, string tie. Very fine, sealed in original mailing envelope. Very scarce.
     First edition. CBC 647 (plus 2 additional entries). Dobie, Big Bend Bibliography, p. 6. According to the preface, the prime mover behind this project was Mrs. O. L. Shipman (see Basic Texas Books 184 and Herd 2062 & 2063). This superb guidebook contains descriptive text and excellent photogravures, including Gage Hotel, Rancho Valle la Cienega (“the first dude ranch ever established in Texas”), Brite Ranch, Jones Ranch, Fort Stockton, Alpine, Presidio-Ojinaga, and other landmarks of the region. A photogravure is a photographic image produced from an engraving plate. The process, which was introduced in the mid-nineteenth century, is rarely used today due to the very high cost. Photogravure prints have the subtlety of a photograph and the art quality of a lithograph. $750.00

Grabhorn Press Rare Americana Series 7. Cowan, p. 161n. Eberstadt, Modern Narratives of the Plains and the Rockies 123. Graff 1027n. Herd 661: “The author...was in the first company to cross the Rocky Mountains in 1841.... Some scattered information on cattle of California and Texas.” Howes D159. Mattes, Platte River Road Narratives 54: “Dawson got his nickname from the time he was caught by Cheyenne Indians, stripped, and robbed of knives and gun.” Kurutz, The California Gold Rush 171: “In 1841, Dawson of Austin, Texas, was a part of the famed Bidwell-Bartleson Party.... His Gold Rush [trip] was organized at Sherman, Texas on March 1, 1849, and aimed at the Southern route.... His fellow pioneer Charles Weber of Stockton tried to coax him into ranching, [but] in 1851, he began the return journey to Texas via the Isthmus.” Mintz, The Trail 118n. Rader 1084n. Vandale 47n.
     Dawson’s observations are some of the earliest and least stereotyped writing on the West, and include good content on cattle: description of specific ranches Dawson visited, such as Marsh’s Ranch near Mount Diablo; cult of horsemanship in Mexican California; social history (e.g., attending a fandango at a ranch near San Jose Mission); hide and tallow trade (“cattle are the only source of wealth of this country”); Anglos and other foreigners acquiring ranches by becoming Mexican citizens, marrying Mexican women, or professing Catholicism; rustling by runaway mission Indians; bull and bear fights; etc. Upon his return to Texas, Dawson settled in Austin and engaged in freighting, farming, and stock raising. $100.00

Dawson & Skiff’s Ute War

1447. DAWSON, Thomas F. & F. J. V. Skiff. The Ute War: A History of the White River Massacre and the Privations and Hardships of the Captive White Women among the Hostiles on Grand River. Denver: Tribune Publishing House, 1879. 184 pp., wood-engravings in text (some full-page; mostly portraits including Chief Ouray and Josie Meeker). 8vo, later dark brown morocco. Without the four leaves of ads at end (we have had this book only once before, and the ads were not present in that copy, nor are they found in the Denver Public Library copy and other copies offered on the market). Minor rubbing to upper edge of front cover of binding, interior fine.
     First edition. Ayer (Supp.) 42. Bauer 108. Braislin 572: “Excessively rare and almost unknown Indian captivity, and regarded by Colorado connoisseurs as the rarest book printed in the state.” DPL, Nothing Is Long Ago: A Documentary History of Colorado 1776-1976 #65 (illustrated): “By 1868 most of the Indians of Colorado had been removed.... Only the Utes—some 3,000 of them—remained. A delegation of their leaders was escorted to Washington in 1868 and induced to sign a treaty ceding the San Luis Valley and the eastern portion of their range, but the reservation they retained west of the 107th meridian still comprised one-third of Colorado.... Although temporarily satisfied, white land hunger, particularly for the agricultural regions of the lower Gunnison and Grand (Colorado) river valleys, shortly produced a swelling chorus: ‘Utes must go!’ Events at the White River Agency in 1879 provided the rationalization for Ute removal.”
     Flake 2732. Graff 1028. Holliday 277. Howes D161: “After Hollister...the rarest Colorado imprint.” Jones 1601. Littell 257: “An excessively rare and little-known Indian captivity regarded by collectors as the rarest book printed in Colorado.” Streeter Sale 2194: “The famous account of western Indian captivity. It is the story of the Meeker Massacre in which nine white men were killed and three white women carried off to be ravished by the Utes. The incident provided reason for depriving the Utes of the extensive lands in western Colorado.” Wilcox, p. 37. Wynar 1800.
     The authors state in chapter 2 that the Ute trouble arose because of the tribe’s discontent with their reservation and their intrusions upon the ranches and settlers in the more desirable grazing land adjacent to their reservation. The Ute perspective was quite different on the second point (see entry above, Helen Sloan Daniels’ The Ute Indians of Southwestern Colorado). Again, two cultures competed for the same land to use for grazing, agriculture, mining, and other pursuits. In this case, the losers were the Utes.
     The book lore regarding the rarity of the imprint probably derives in part from Eberstadt (107:117): “Mr. Dawson, co-author of this narrative was, in his latter days, Curator of the Colorado Historical Society. He met his death in an automobile accident on the trail to Lookout Mountain, while escorting President Harding to Cody’s grave. He once told me why his book was so rare. ‘There are,’ he explained, ‘probably not more than a dozen copies in existence. You see, just about the time the book went to press we had another Indian outbreak, cartridge wadding was needed by the troops, and my book—mere paper stock at the time—was used to supply the deficiency.”
     Although this work is often referred to as the rarest book printed in Colorado, the number of copies located and offered on the market would seem to suggest otherwise. The book is also interesting for providing details on the Black cavalry troops that fought in the Ute War. $2,000.00

1448. DAY, A. Grove. Coronado’s Quest: The Discovery of the Southwestern States. Berkeley & Los Angeles: University of California Press, 1940. xvi [2] 419 pp., large folding map, text illustrations. 8vo, original black cloth. Fine in slightly chipped d.j. (price-clipped). Ink ownership inscription on front free endpaper.
     First edition. Saunders 2489n. Tate, Indians of Texas 1724. Wallace, Arizona History III:40. This history of the Coronado expedition is for the general reader, with index, good footnotes, chronology, bibliography, and a large folding map of the region traversed. Coronado’s expedition to the Southwest in 1540 was a cavalcade of noteworthy proportions, during which the indigenous people of the region experienced their first extensive exposure to Europeans. Coronado left Mexico with an entourage of 274 mounted men, 62 foot soldiers, 6 Franciscan padres, 700 slaves, a remuda of 1,000 horses, 600 pack animals, and a walking larder of 1,000 cattle and 4,000 sheep. Coronado introduced horses, cattle, and sheep to the indigenous peoples of the Southwest. Coronado, who is often referred to as the last conquistador, returned to Spain a failure, financially ruined and physically ill, but the legacy he left behind in the form of strayed and stolen Andalusian cattle formed the nucleus for the wild herds of longhorns that transformed the landscape and life of the American Southwest. $65.00

     First edition. Guns 573: “This scarce little book tells some of the inside facts of the feud from the Taylor side by one of the participants and a kinsman of the Taylors.” Handbook of Texas Online: Sutton-Taylor Feud: “The Sutton-Taylor Feud, the longest and bloodiest in Texas, grew out of the bad times following the Civil War.... [In 1869] ostensibly in pursuit of horse and cattle thieves, the State Police terrorized a large portion of Southeast Texas.... There was constant pursuing and lying in wait, and deaths were frequent. Sutton moved to Victoria in an adjoining county and finally determined to leave the country. Some say he was going away for good; others believe he was merely following a herd of cattle to a northern market. He had boarded a steamer at Indianola on March 11, 1874, when Jim and Bill Taylor rode up to the dock and killed him and his friend Gabriel Slaughter. The Suttons got even by lynching three Taylors. Kute Tuggle, Jim White, and Scrap Taylor were among a group of cowboys who had engaged to take a herd up the trail for John Wesley Hardin. At Hamilton they were arrested, charged with cattle theft.... On the night of June 20, 1874, they were taken out of the courthouse and hanged, though they were probably innocent of any wrongdoing.” $125.00

     First edition. This illustrated history of the Texas soldier from San Jacinto to World War II includes a chapter on the Rough Riders, the volunteer “cowboy cavalry” of the Spanish American War. “During his self-imposed exile in the Dakotas, [Theodore Roosevelt] developed a genuine appreciation for the people in the West. He believed that the average cowboy groups had riding skills and marksmanship equal to any equestrian force in the world” (pp. 100-101). $45.00

1457. DAYTON, Edson C. Dakota Days: May 1886-August 1898. [Hartford or Clifton Springs, New York]: Privately printed, 1937. [10] 128 pp., frontispiece map, plate. 8vo, original gilt-lettered blue cloth. Superb copy, in original paper box.
     First edition, limited edition (#241 of 300 copies). Loring Campbell, My Favorite 101 Books about the Cattle Industry 28. Dobie, p. 102: “[Dayton] had spiritual content. His very use of the world intellectual on the second page of his book; his estimate of Milton and Gladstone, adjacent to talk about a frontier saloon; his consciousness of his own inner growth—something no extrovert cowboy ever noticed, usually because he did not have it; his quotation to express harmony with nature...all indicate a refinement that any gambler could safely bet originated in the East and not in Texas or the South.” Dykes, Collecting Range Life Literature, p. 14. Herd 665: “Scarce.” Howes D165. Reese, Six Score 29: “Dayton had more connection with sheep than with cattle, but he saw a good deal of both. A well educated easterner, he gives an interesting perspective on life in the Dakotas during the hard years of the 1890s.” $500.00

1458. DAYTON, Edson C. Dakota Days.... [Hartford or Clifton Springs, New York]: Privately printed, 1937. Another copy, without box. Very fine. $400.00

1459. DE BARTHE, Joe. The Life and Adventures of Frank Grouard, Chief of Scouts, U.S.A.... St. Joseph, Missouri: Combe Printing Co., [1894]. 545 pp., frontispiece (photographic portrait of Grouard), plates (mostly photographic). Thick 8vo, original tan gilt-lettered pictorial cloth (rebacked, original spine preserved, new endpapers). Spine faded, binding worn, upper right blank corner of title neatly clipped, occasional marginal browning and chipping to some pages and plates. Tipped in at front is a typed note dated 1953 on engraved stationery of Charles D. Humberd, M.D., of Barnard, Missouri. The note contains a long description of the book (“splendid & unusual with mostly unique full-page plates...these are largely half-tone cuts of otherwise unknown photographic portraits of personages who come in for comment in the text”). Following the book description are biographical notes on Grouard, stating he died of alcoholism at St. Joseph, Missouri, on August 16, 1905, and was a pauper. “The scout’s friends raised funds to pay for his burial.”
     First edition. Eberstadt 105:105: “Huntington No. 231: ‘Of the highest importance historically; probably the most thorough and reliable work on scouting on the plains that has ever been written.’ Nearly the entire edition was lost in the St. Joe flood.... The noted scout tells of his journey to Helena in 1865; his capture by the Sioux and his intercourse with Sitting Bull; of Ventres and the Blackfeet War; of his campaigns with Gen. Crook and in the government service; of California Joe; the killing of McGloskey, etc.” Eberstadt, Modern Narratives of the Plains and the Rockies 124. Flake 2743. Graff 1035. Guns 574: “Rare.... Contains a chapter on Frank and Jesse James.” Holliday 280. Howes D183. Jennewein, Black Hills Booktrails 70. Jones 1669. Littell 259. Luther, High Spots of Custer 33: “An interwoven western classic.” Rader 1090. Streeter Sale 3090.
     According to Finerty, General Crook once said that he would rather lose a third of his command than be deprived of Grouard’s scouting services. Grouard’s minute knowledge of the country and its Native American inhabitants was essential to the U.S. Army in its campaign against tribes in the Dakotas, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, and Nebraska at the critical juncture when the original inhabitants were struggling to retain their lands against the encroachments of miners, ranchers, and settlers.
     Grouard was in the unique position of having lived for seven years as a Sioux warrior under Sitting Bull after being taken captive as a teenager. Grouard gives a firsthand account of the 1877 Nez Percé War, which resulted from the government’s double-dealing on the farm and grazing lands of the Lapwai and Wallowa valleys secured by Chief Joseph and his people in 1855. In 1875 disputes regarding stock arose between the Nez Percé and Anglo settlers, and by 1877 the Nez Percé were forced to give up their homes to the Anglos.
     In the final chapters, Grouard recounts his participation in quelling the Sioux and Cheyenne uprising in South Dakota in 1890. Grouard was sent to determine why the tribes were stealing and butchering the range stock of the regional cattlemen. He reported that rather than the Ghost Dance being the cause of the trouble, the depredations were due to the government’s litany of broken promises, including not honoring its commitment to provide beef and other provisions to the Pine Ridge Agency. After assisting the Army with the “Indian Problem” in the region, Grouard then turned his attention to thieves and rustlers who infiltrated the area (“It just seemed as if all the thieves in the universe had been turned loose [and] they were, in my opinion, infinitely worse than the Indians ever were.”). $550.00

Ink date on front free endpaper (January, 1895). Laid in is an original typed letter signed from Albert W. Johnson (Historic Research Pioneer Life, Trails, and Indian War History, Marine-On-St. Croix, Minn.), dated October 14, 1931, to Logan’s Book and Curio Store in Cheyenne, Wyoming, with information about the book, including: “I stopped off at St. Joseph, Mo. and made some inquiries there about Frank Grouard’s book...and found that it was scarce now. Mr. Bundy the City Librarian had some copies two or three ye[a]rs ago which he offered for about $30.00, this being the lowest price I have had mentioned to me. The Librarian at Kansas City who had originally had the plates was asking $100.00. As you know the plates were destroyed by accident. I was told by a man in St. Joseph who knew Frank Grouard well in St Joseph, and was informed of his latter days, that the book had no sale when published and that blocks of it were turned over to the Grocery stores who advertised it as prizes in connection with sales.” $600.00
