Object Literature

Exert from The Last Bison by Charles Mair

He was the last survivor of his clan!

Huge was his frame! the famed Burdash, so grown
To that enormous bulk whose presence filled
The very vale with awe. His shining horns
Gleamed black amidst his fell of floating hair–
His neck and shoulders, of the lion’s build,

Were framed to toss the world.

Object Condition

Very good overall condition with minimal wear to horns and very little hair loss. Small tear to one eyelid, otherwise excellent.
