[FLORIDA-STREETER/LITCHFIELD COPY] CANOVA, ANDREW P. Life and Adventures in South Florida.
Palatka, FL: The Southern Sun Publishing House, 1885. Stitched in original printed upper wrapper, housed in folding cloth case with bookplates affixed to the inside case cover. 8 x 5 1/2 inches (21 x 13.5 cm); 4 plates at front, 136 pp. The upper wrapper detached and with some chips, creases and small losses not affecting printed area, spine perished, the rear wrapper lacking and the final leaf dust soiled, a few minor marginal chips and creases to first and last leaves not affecting text, with the bookplate of H.L. Sayler, the booklabel of Thomas W. Streeter, and the bookplate of Edward Sands Litchfield.
A very rare Florida imprint, this is the Streeter copy sold in 1969 and the only copy in the auction record. The work provides a narrative of "Billy Bowlegs War" or the final standoff between the Seminole and Florida settlers and also offers a sketch of life in Florida at that time. For this copy, see The Edward S. Litchfield Collection, p. 56; Streeter 4106; and Howes C117.
