For your consideration in this lot is a rare edition of the 1914 book Buffalo Bill and The Overland Trail by Edwin L. Sabin. This is a Thirteenth Impression By J. B. Lippincott Company. This book tells the story of how boy and man (Buffalo Bill) worked hard and played hard to blaze the white trail, by wagon train, stage coach and pony express, across the great plains and the mountains beyond, that the American republic might expand and flourish. Edwin L. Sabin (1870-1954) was a newspaper reporter for some time before becoming an accomplished author specializing in Western historical fiction. Sabin and his wife eventually moved to California to be closer to his subject matter. This wonderful book is bound in chocolate leather, with gold embossed title on the spine. The inside pages bear stamps from the libraries where this book spent its early years. This book has wear on the edges of the cover, and the pages have foxing due to its over 100 year age. The book has good construction and fair condition. This book is very wonderful in both appearance and content. The book measures 7 1/4" x 5 1/4" x 1 1/2".
