There are four full-page "views" of Fort Benton, Bison, Worden and Company (Hell Gate Ronde) and Fort Owen. The bulk of the text is a listing of the Society's members, listed by county. There are also 14 pages of portraits, each featuring the Society's presidents from 1884 to 1898.
Text block is tight, bright and unmarked. 262 p. : ill., maps, ports. ; 27 cm.
VG- hardcover with no Dust Jacket (as issued?). Green cloth over boards with bright gilt seal of the society on the front cover and bright gilt title on spine. Binding is tight but the cloth is worn through to the boards at the corners. There is an area along the bottom of the front and rear covers that is lightened as the result of some water damage. The line is no more than 3/4" high on the front panel and 2/8" high on the back. However, the cloth was weakened and is fraying. On the front panel, the left-most 3" has worn through along the bottom edge, exposing the board. The text block is unaffected.
Spine has Dewey Decimal number on the spine and is stamped "Free Library of Philadelphia" at the top page edge, but there are no other library marks anywhere in the book.
