President Theodore Roosevelt was one of the most dynamic people of his generation. As the  twenty-sixth president of the United States, he established numerous antitrust laws. He created necessary regulations on corporations. He supported the Conservation Movement with the founding of many national parks and monuments. For these achievements, most historical lenses look back flatteringly on his presidency. Yet it is also worth noting that he expanded the problematic practices of colonialism on the American continent and abroad. Prior to the presidency, Roosevelt was also the police commissioner then governor of New York, the leader of the Rough Riders (the famous U.S. cavalry regiment in the Spanish-American War), and a cattle rancher. He was awarded the Medal of Honor and the Nobel Peace Prize and he appears on Mount Rushmore. Somehow in the midst of such a full life he was also able to write numerous books. In African Game Trails–one of his most widely read works–he describes his explorations of Africa in the years following his presidency. On that long expedition, Roosevelt and his son Kermit hunted big game, scouted regions, and connected with fellow colonial subjects across Africa. It is considered a hunting and expedition classic. 

These two uniform edition volumes are in very good condition. In the original faux leather boards, very good with only minor rubbing to edges. Handsomely framed with lion’s head emblem to front boards. Text blocks fine. These are two annual volumes of the reprinted uniform edition set.

A very good vintage set of Teddy Roosevelt’s African Game Trails.
