This is a very good hardcover. 1903 MacMillan Publishing America Sportsmen's Library First Thus. This copy is very good inside and out. The inside pages show only very light natural tanning from age. There is no serious foxing or markings seen. The binding is tight and straight BUT NOTE: inside front cover between two blank pages there is the hinting of binding separation but consider mild thus as the pages are not loose. Regardless, care of handling and notation recommended. Rugh cut page edges. The top page edges were originally tipped in gold which is now faded and wearing but good as representable of original tip. Olive green cloth hardcover boards feature gold design front with gold lettering. Gold title/author/publisher lettering along spine. All the gold design and lettering are very good with only light wearing. The cloth boards show light wearing along corners/edges but overall very good given age. Octavo book size or 6" x 9" with 334 pages including index. Tissue guard missing from frontispiece.

From the book Foreword: "This volume is meant for the lover of the wild, free, lonely life of the wilderness and of the hardy pastimes known to the sojourners therein" Theodore Roosevelt.
Seven maps and 25 engravings including frontispiece accompany the engaging and compelling text. Avid outdoorsman, hunter and amateur naturalist, Theodore Roosevelt wrote many titles on hunting, nature and more. This title, The Deer Family, features his writing in the first five chapters. Other writers including T.S. Van Dyke and D.G. Elliot along with A.J Stone are included.

Roosevelt's writings are on the mule deer, whitetail deer, antelope, and elk. Van Dyke writes on elk, mule deer and Columbia blacktail. Elliot writes on the caribou and Stone on Moose.
