    Original Theodore Roosevelt and the Rough Riders Photograph.

    New York: Charles Scribner's Sons 1899.

    Rare original sepia-toned photograph of Theodore Roosevelt and Commander Leonard Wood leading a regimental drill with the 1st United States Volunteer Cavalry in San Antonio, Texas. The photograph was featured as a double page engraved illustration in Roosevelt’s best-selling work, The Rough Riders. San Antonio was a pivotal location in the cavalry’s history as it was from the Menger Hotel that Roosevelt conceived of and formed the group. In 1905, a Rough Riders reunion convened in San Antonio at the end of the campaign season and before the commencement of Roosevelt’s second term as president. Matted and framed with fragments from historic army San Antonio photographer, D.P. Barr’s original presentation mat in a sleeve to the verso. The entire piece measures 19.5 inches by by 11.5 inches. Accompanied by a first edition of The Rough Riders in the original cloth with the frontispiece of Theodore Roosevelt with tissue guard, illustrations, top edge gilt. In near fine condition with period ownership inscription to the front free endpaper. Rare and desirable, an attractive pairing.
