This first Roosevelt Bear Book stars two two friendly anthropomorphized full-sized bears, Teddy B. and Teddy G, who came from the wilds of Colorado to explore human civilization. From 1905 for about the next twenty years, Seymour Eaton's anthropomorphic bears were the subject of some of the most popular children's books in America. Their topical popularity was due to the tie-in between the bears and Teddy Roosevelt during the 1900s when Roosevelt was President of the U.S. (Inventory #: 17757)
