[ALASKA] HUNTER, FENLEY. Frances Lake Yukon Dawson 1887 Hunter 1923.
Flushing: Hunter, 1924. From the edition of 50, this is a printer's copy numbered x, with a presentation from the printer, Frank E. Hopkins of the Marion Press, to Thomas Larremore, his son-in-law and biographer. Publisher's quarter brown morocco. 9 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches (23.5 x 15.5 cm); 103,  pp.; folding map, fifteen plates, ten facsimiles of pen and ink maps and sketches (two folding). Some slight wear to joints, light wear to head and foot of spine, in all a sound copy. Bookstamp of Robert Pierce (collector of Hartsdale, New York?) on endpaper.
The last copy we trace of this work is the Streeter example, of which Streeter wrote "Hunter's narration of his journey "to the Yukon in quest of Frances Lake" is taken from his diary. "Many things that I wrote in the field last summer read queerly today, but that may be accounted for by the fact that here on Long Island I am neither tired, hungry, nor wet. These three things strangely influence the amateur explorer."
