Product DescriptionA Colorado Bear Hunt by Theodore Roosevelt, published in 1905. The only other original of this poster we have been able to find is in the Library of Congress. The poster includes a large central black & white photo of Theodore Roosevelt standing with a long gun over a large bear. The photo caption reads, “From a photograph by Philip B. Stewart” and “Copyright, 1905, by Charles Scribner’s Sons, New York”. The text of the poster is printed in black and red and promotes Roosevelt’s book as well as “Letters and Diaries of George Bancroft, ‘The House of Mirth’ and A Sea Story by J.B. Connolly” . The poster measures 23.75 inches high by 16 inches wide. There are some condition issues to the edges of the poster, as you might imagine from a piece of paper that has survived since 1905. Small tears on both sides and small amount of discoloration to edges, (please see photos). The poster was also folded in half horizontally and there is a crease in the middle. The poster is preserved on a sheet of cardboard behind shrink-wrapped plastic. The plastic is torn in the lower right corner and the edge of the poster is a bit wrinkled in that area. A professional picture framer can address all of these issues. Absolutely fabulous original artwork for a hunter or history buff, and especially Roosevelt fans!
