Lot Details

Lot 600
[WYOMING] [WHITE, SIR GODFREY DALRYMPLE]. My Diary of a Shooting Trip in Wyoming August to October 1895 with E.G. Verschoyle.
[title from label on cover]. Half-leather and marbled boards, with matching endpapers, handwritten label on upper cover, housed in a modern red cloth book box. 8 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches (22 x 19 cm); 72 pp., black ink on ruled paper, written rectos only in a legible hand. Slight rubbing to ends and corners.
White hunted in Wyoming for elk, mountain lion and grizzly bear, using the services of a guide named "Woody" whose memories went back to California in '49. He was successful in his hunting endeavors, and his wapiti, lynx and big horn sheep kills are noted in the 1899 edition of Rowland Ward's Records of Big Game. An interesting final note from 1949 (in a hand now crabbed by age) records that he made an 1899 trip to Florida for tarpon with his friend Verschoyle (who had known from school days at Wellington), who was killed in Orange Free State in 1900.
