Lot 316
[HERSHEY, OMER FENNIMORE] Babes in the Bush and Canadian Tales.
Baltimore: privately printed (at the Lord Baltimore Press), 1923. Copy four of seven issued. Publisher's quarter black cloth. 6 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches (17.5 x 11.5 cm); 166 pp.; frontispiece and 12 original photographs tipped-in. Some slight rubbing, spine slightly toned, small mark on title but generally a very nice copy.
A very rare private press account of a canoe trip to Lakes Edward and Algonquin, during which fishing for trout and chub was engaged in, and a good time was had by all. Unfortunately, the scribe chose to recount the adventure in "Olde Englishe," but to be fair it makes for amusing reading. We find two copies on WorldCat, at Harvard/Houghton and at Library and Archives Canada; no auction records are noted.

C Estate of Arnold 'Jake' Johnson
