N.P. [1930s?]. 16” x 10 ½”. Ten bifolia, stapled at center, though most are loose. First 24 pages are handwritten and/or illustrated, the rest are blank. Very good: light wear, first (and last?) leaves separated below the staple, two center bifolia are loose from staple.
An anonymous homage to cowboy poetry containing 23 in text-pen and ink illustrations apparently influenced by Will James and Charles M. Russell. 19 are neatly written out, each line beginning with a large initial. 14 of the poems come from Charles Badger Clark's “Sun and Saddle Leather,” which was first published in 1915. The accomplished illustrations include cowboys on ranch lands, the lassoing horses or cattle, men carousing in a bar, a bar shootout, a man tending to sheep and more.
