Theodore Roosevelt signed limited first edition of his ''African Game Trails. An Account of the African Wanderings of an American Hunter-Naturalist''. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1910. In two complete volumes, with volume I elegantly signed by the 26th President upon the limitation page, #171 of 500. Bound in original three-quarter tan pigskin, with deckled edges. Large octavo books measure 7'' x 10'' and contain 50 illustrations, including photographs, photogravures, drawings, and a map. Photographs were taken by members of the expedition, including a portrait frontispiece; photogravures were done by Kermit Roosevelt and other members of the expedition, and drawings completed by Philip R. Goodwin, a number with protective captioned tissue guards. This work was the result of Roosevelt's ten-month hunting trip through central and northern Africa, begun after leaving the White House in March 1909. Foxing throughout, previous owner's inscription to flyleaf and expert restoration to recase hinges. An attractive set, in very good plus condition.
