I Often Make A Post About Books I Would Like To Own,

many are of UK titles or authors,

so for a change here is a book by an American author and subject matter, the 1924 book titled Roping Lions in the Grand Canyon, admittedly it is the UK version, 

written by Pearl Zane Grey,

perhaps best known for his work, Riders of the Purple Sage,

he was an American author known for his popular adventure novels and stories that presented an idealized image of the rugged Old West, as of June 2007, the Internet Movie Database credits Grey with 110 films, one TV episode, and a series, Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theater based loosely on his novels and short stories,

back to the book itself, this is a second edition of the illustrated adventure account of the author's time in the Grand Canyon with Buffalo Bill, how can a book be more American than that? published in London by Hodder and Stoughton, size: 7.5" by 5" pagination: [4], 5-223pp

the book is in the publishers' original binding, with dust wrapper, the second U.K. edition of this work, illustrated with a frontispiece, and three plates. collated, complete, with bookseller's stamp to the recto to the front endpaper, yours for just £360.00, from Rooke Books, another one for the collection!
