46 [Cattle] Proceedings of the National Convention of Cattle Growers Held at the
Coates Opera House, Kansas City, Mo.,…Under the Auspices of the Consolidated Cattle
Growers’ Association of the United States. Chicago: John Morris Printing Co., 1887. 8vo,
original gray printed wrappers (smoke stain on spine with tiny pieces missing, dampstain to lower right portion of wrappers and interior pages), 91 + [20 unnumbered] pp., four pages of unrelated matter before title. Housed in a gray library cloth clamshell with black spine.
Not in Adams, HERD, where it would have been listed between the National Convention programs for 1886 (HERD 1599) and the one in 1894 (HERD 1600). OCLC shows UT-Austin plus four other non-Western collecting libraries. These National Convention programs are also rare to the trade; the Eberstadts had the program for the Denver 1898 session in 1964, and the Jenkins Company had an 1883 program in 1983. The Board of Directors and the officers had many of the leading cattlemen of the country participating, including Alvin H. Sanders and John Clay, Jr. of Chicago, Thomas Sturgis of Wyoming, and Granville Stuart of Monanta, as well as Isaac Prior of Austin. A very rare record of the history of the Cattle trade.
