This edition was limited to 100 copies, of which this is number eighteen, signed by Wister, and printed on Japan vellum, with illustrations by C.M. Russell and Frederic Remington. Curiously, this limited edition was issued by the publishers nine years after the first, which had by then achieved great fame.
