A WYOMING BIG GAME HUNT
[Kansas City:]: Union Bank Note Company, 1907. 56pp. Profusely illustrated with photographs. Pictorial wrappers, sewn. Minor wear and dust-soiling, faint coffee ring to front cover and front blank. Very good. In a tan burlap chemise and slipcase, gilt leather label. A rare, privately-printed, and handsomely-illustrated account of sport and adventure in the wilds of Wyoming. "It is considered by authorities as among the scarcest of hunting narratives. Dr. Cordier records in interesting fashion the trek into the heart of the Wyoming country; amusing incidents of the trip; mountain trails; pack trains; elk and wolf fighting; Tetons; snow storms, etc." - Eberstadt. Streeter described it as "a very interesting narrative, illustrated with photographs, of a hunting trip which took place in September, 1905." Only ten copies are listed in OCLC, and it is far rarer still to encounter in the marketplace. In 1937, Eberstadt stated that no copy had ever appeared at auction; only three have appeared since. HOWES C774, "aa." STREETER SALE 4125. EBERSTADT 109:34. OCLC 9630936.
