Derrydale Press 1934 - New York: The Derrydale Press, 1934. First Edition. Hard Cover. Limited Edition #295 of 950 printed. 240 pp. Blue cloth covered boards with round color illustration of mallards inset on front cover board. Dulling to titles on spine. 8 black and white photo illustrations throughout the text. Rear internal paper hinge starting. Former owner's discreet gift inscription on front free endpaper from Hazel Crumlish, a retired Chicago attorney who died at age 94 in Florida. A rare early Derrydale Press publication. This is about the nicest copy of this title I have seen, with no internal markings, and no foxing of the pages. Nash Buckingham was perhaps the most famous author of sporting tales in the first half of the 20th century. This collection of Seventeen stories first published in Field and Stream , Recreation , and Outdoor Life was originally published by The Derrydale Press in 1934. Buckingham's ability to evoke the golden age of wildfowling along the Mississippi flyway from the 1890s to the 1940s is unparalleled. Pull up your favorite chair in front of a fire and get ready to relive some of the best hunting stories ever told. Great stories about Col. Harold Money and his hunting exploits.The picture of Nash I have included does not appear in this title. I have included it to further your understanding of the author. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
