Cincinnati: United States Book and Bible Co., 1879. Burdett (b.1815) wrote popular history and juvenile works. His biography of Kit falls somewhere between the two. First published in 1862, this is a Very Good (Plus) copy of what may be, according to the Preface, a revised edition. The spine has a different publisher (Potter) than the Title Page; Quercus proposes that Potter licensed the publication to the Cincinnati publisher. But on to the story: the Title Page states: "Comprising Wild and Romantic Exploits as a Hunter and Trapper in the Rocky Mountains; Thrilling Adventures and Hair-Breadth Escapes Among the Indians and Mexicans; His Daring and Invaluable Services as a Guide to Scouting and Other Parties, Etc., Etc. With an Account of Various Government Expeditions to the Far West." Et cetera, indeed, and illustrated too! Decorative brown cloth binding; front cover stamped in black; spine is in black and gilt, with an image of Kit up a tree with two bears after him. Clean text; 382 pages, very bright and supple. Corners are bumped and there is rubbing along the margins. Still, a solid and attractive volume.. Reprint Edition. Decorative Cloth. Very Good (Plus)/No Jacket. 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall.
