The Old-Time Cowhand.
New York: Macmillan 1961. 1st Printing, so stated. Hardbound 8vo (9.5 inches tall) 354 pages. Description: Dust jacket design by Muriel Nasser. Illustrated with black and white drawings by Nick Eggenhofer. Here is everything about the real, ungilded, old-time cowhand, what he did, wore, thought. His horse, guns, rope, clothing, sleeping bag; his eating and drinking habits; his attitude toward God, women, bosses, saloons, rodeos; his unwritten code of conduct. A complete manual of rules with regard to every aspect of his job -- cow-punching, fence-riding, bronco-busting, trail-driving, together with a point-blank analysis of cows, bulls, horses, range diseases -- all the minutiae making up the cowhand's daily life are packed into this handsome volume. Six-Guns, Number 12; 50 Great Western Illustrators, Eggenhofer Number 18. BINDING/CONDITION: brown cloth with red and gilt spine text, the top edge tint is red; small accidental (not remainder) mark from a ballpoint pen on the bottom edge, the cloth is slightly faded along the top edge, otherwise a Very Good book, with a Good+ dust jacket; the front flap of the jacket is clipped at both top and bottom corners, but the publisher's price is printed sideways, and is still in place. No owner markings, the hinges are sound, one handling smudge on the fore-edge of the text block. The jacket is not chipped, but is faded at the spine, the front panel still has reasonably good color.
