Salmon Fishing on Cain River, New Brunswick
[Chicago: Privately Printed [by Ralph Fletcher Seymour], 1919 - A beautifullly produced volume, privately printed for Lee Sturges (1865- 1954), a well known Chicago artist and industrialist. Bruns recounts how the author picked up the edition of 50 copies from the printer, leaving them on the kitchen table, and how, that night, the house burned down, with Sturges managing to rescue either four or five copies. Bruns, writing in 1975, was able to account for four copies, and possibly the fifth. Unquestionably rare One of 50 copies printed. 8vo. With 7 etched plates by Sturges, each with lettered tissue guards, numerous text illustrations. Frontispiece etching signed lower right in pencil. Unpaginated, [40] pp. Original gray boards, upper board titled in gilt and stamped in blind. Spine professionally restored, preserving original backstrip. Bookplate. Custom half morocco slipcase and chemise. Wetzel p. 220; Bruns S328 [Attributes: Hard Cover]
