a046t.jpgDESCRIPTION: Unstated FIRST EDITION, Carl Rungius: Artist & Sportsman, c. 2001 The Glenbow Museum, Warwick Publ. New condition, crease in dj on the front. During his lifetime, artist Carl Rungius (1869-1959) enjoyed a reputation similar to that of well-known western painter Frederic Remington. Though interest in his depictions of the wildlife and awesome landscapes of the west declines after his death, growing fascination with our wilderness heritage is bringing Rungius back into the public eye. Rungius tended toward realism in his depiction of wildlife, he did some commercial illustration work for the magazine Field and Stream and paintings for the New York Zoological Society, but he also experimented with contemporary brushwork. Though his training was European, Rungius worked to develop a palette that would better convey the striking contrasts of light and color peculiar to the mountains and prairies of North America. The publication of this book coincides with a travelling exhibit created by the Glenbow Museum of Calgary, Alberta.

Letters to his wife Nancy, to patrons and fellow artists, and to the saloon keepers and cowboys who remained his friends for life reveal a surprisingly modest man.

Each letter is reproduced in facsimile, allowing readers to see, in the artist's own handwriting and with his inimitable spellings and punctuation, how Russell cleverly interwove colorful sketches and eloquent words to form a memorable whole.

a199t.jpgDESCRIPTION: Historic Photos of Old California, text and captions by Nancy Hendrickson, c. 2009, Turner Publ. Co. Unstated FIRST EDITION, hardcover edition with dj. The spin and dj are torn on the bottom. The story of California began when a Portuguese captain sailing for Spain found a beautiful natural harbor as he plied his way up the Pacific coast. Little could he have imagined that dropping his anchor in what is now San Diego Bay would be the birth of the Golden State. Ask any Californian and you'll quickly learn that California is like two states in one: In the north are rocky cliffs, rugged beaches, and a heritage that harkens back to gold rush days. In the south is the quintessential "postcard" California of orange trees, warm ocean breezes, and boulevards lined with palm trees. Whichever California you favor, both have a rich heritage based in the cultures of Spain, England, Russia, China, and America. Citizens from all these lands came to California early, and all had a hand in building the nation's most populace state. This is her story.

a297t.jpgDESCRIPTION: Charles M. Russell: Printed Rarities from Private Collections by Larry Len Peterson, c. 2008. Mountain Press Publishing Co., Missoula, Montana 2008. Stated FIRST PRINTING, unstated FIRST EDITION. Softcover coffee table book in very good condition. Russell was one of those rare artists who was famous during his lifetime. Most books about Russell focus on his masterpieces, but Charles M. Russell: Printed Rarities from Private Collections examines the lesser-known but ubiquitous commercial works that made him a household name. These magazine covers, postcards, calendars, cigar boxes, ink blotters, letterheads, and artifacts are today some of the most highly sought after Russell memorabilia. From Great Northern Railway's See America First stamps to a 1904 tray advertising Heptol Splits, many of these items have not been seen since they were first produced. Charles M. Russell: Printed Rarities from Private Collections presents hundreds of these extraordinary gems in a large, full-color format, framed by the story of Russell's remarkable life.
