Lone Cowboy. Limited Edition, One of 250 With an Original Drawing by the Author. Will James. New York-London, Charles Scribner's Sons, 1930.

Description:
WILL JAMES The Limited Edition of LONE COWBOY ONE OF 250 WITH AN ORIGINAL DRAWING BY THE AUTHOR Simply – the finest example of the Limited I have ever seen!! Publication was 1930, with green cloth covers and brown cloth spine with a leather label on the spine with gold imprinting. The book came housed in a green paper covered board slipcase, also with a brown leather label imprinted in gold. Each of the 250 limited’s came with an original drawing tipped in following the page describing the limitation, and each different. It has been my pleasure and good fortune to have handled 9 of these limited’s in the last 15 years. The condition of this book is superior to any I have seen. And it is only the 3nd I have seen with the original slipcase. From this experience, my opinion is that the value of these books is based on the following 3 criteria: condition of the book, presence and condition of the slipcase, and quality of the drawing. The book is very fine, with the covers as bright a green as ever seen. As Don describes, the covers are very susceptible to fading from exposure to light, and most books fade on the front or back or both. The label is fine and the gilt is bright. The binding is tight and there are no marks inside the book. The slipcase is nearly as fine as ever seen! There is slight age toning, with a light tan hue to the edges. The label of the slipcase is fine as well. The ink drawing is of a young, lone horse looking at you. It resembles how James drew Smoky. A spectacular book and slipcase.
