The Last Wild Buffalo Hunt
Privately Printed, New York, 1916. First edition. 10 plates (including map and frontispiece). 32pp. 1 vols. 12mo. Lincon Ellsworth (1880-1951), polar explorer and benefactor of the American Museum of Natural History, produced a small private edition of his first-hand account of this hunt in the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana in 1911. The last large herd of buffalo in the U.S. had grazed in the Flathead Reservation, and had been sold to the Canadian government four years before. After the round-up several outlaw bulls were still at large in the rugged terrain. Ellsworth describes a three-week hunt in which he finally stalked and shot a large bull.
