Jinglebob - Philip Ashton, Rollins, N. C. Wyeth (Illustrator) 1930 - Charles Scribner's Sons, New York - First Edition ‘America has two types of cowboy, the synthetic and the real.’

A fine copy of a scarce N.C. Wyeth title, Rollins’ adventurous portrait of the real cowboys of the American west, it features Wyeth’s colour cover insert, illustrated endpapers, and four full-page colour plates.
  Born in Needham, Massachusetts in 1882, N.C. (Newell Convers) Wyeth was one of the most successful illustrators of his time, and the preeminent example of the results of Howard Pyle’s illustrative techniques. During his career, Wyeth painted nearly 4,000 illustrations for books and magazines, many of them embracing the American Western theme, and filled with cowboys, Indians, gun fighters and gold miners. He also illustrated many popular children’s stories, including Tom Sawyer and Treasure Island, establishing visual images of characters that remained in young readers’ minds for generations. Tragically, Wyeth was killed in a car accident at a railroad crossing in 1945. Significant public collections of his work are on display at the Brandywine River Musem, in Chadds Ford, Delaware, Pennsylvania.

Philiip Ashton Rollins participated in two cattle drives as a teenager and spent six months on the Cheyenne Indians’ Dakota reservation. Educated as a lawyer on the east coast, he regularly returned to visit and study the American West firsthand. He is the author of several books on cowboys and the west, including
The Cowboy, Jinglebob, and Gone Haywire.
