25.   Johnston, Charles H.L.
Famous Scouts Including Trappers, Pioneers, and Soldiers of the Frontier . . .
 
Publisher: Boston: L.C. Page, 1910.
First edition, First printing Hardback octavo in brown cloth decorated in dark brown and green. 340 pages illustrated by 14 engravings on coated paper, and 14 unnumbered pages of ads at end. Only an OK copy but with a wonderful association. The ownership signature of Tom Buchanan is on the half title. Buchanan was a western novelist and scriptwriter in the 1950's, mostly for Disney. He wrote the lyrics for the Davy Crockett theme for the hugely successful series produced by Disney, that song being perhaps the most popular of the decade. Crockett, of course, is the subject of one of the short biographies in this book. Hints of the song and the series are in the piece. The text is clean but a bit toned. The front endpaper is missing and the front hinge is consequently quite shaken but still holding. Modest to moderate edge and surface wear with some loss of color; spine is noticeably darkened.

27.   Kimball, Maria Brace; introduction by Major General William C. Gorgas.
A Soldier-Doctor of Our Army, James P. Kimball.
 
Publisher: Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1917.
First Edition, First printing Hardback 12mo, about 7.5 inches tall, in blue cloth with red white and blue decoration surrounding the gilt title on cover. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON THE FRONT ENDPAPER WITH AN IMPERSONAL INSCRIPTION ("With the compliments of the author.") dated 1928. Previous owner name penned above the inscription in a different hand. 192 pages illustrated by 21 plates on coated paper, most photographic but a couple of drawings including a fold-out panorama of Fort Buford in the Dakota Territory in 1868. A scarce biography of an Army physician who finiished his career as the Assistant Surgeon General of the Army. Perhaps a biography written by an adoring wife, but it is largely taken from his journals, letters and logs. And the author wrote a much admired (see Graff, 2324) account of her own time on the frontier: "My Eighty Years . " privately published in 1934. The subject spent time in some very interesting places, and the wife also. The Civil War duty is not particularly interesting, but his posting in the Dakotas, and under Custer in the Yellowstone Expedition and leading up to the Little Big Horn were very interesting and he was very close to Custer. He had been sent east shortly before the battle but his subordinates died. He also served in Wyoming and saw action in the the Ute War (in the relief party following the Thornburgh Massacre). There were also lengthy postings in Texas and New Mexico. An excellent, factually sound and unemotional recounting of service on the frontier. Howes, K137; Graff 2325; Luther 26 (Custer High Spot). A clean, soundly bound copy with very slight toning to the paper. The covers are very lightly worn and rubbed; tips lightly bumped. Hardcover Hardcover Very good+
