[OHIO-HUNTING] EDWARDS, SAMUEL E. The Ohio Hunter: Or a Brief Sketch of the Frontier Life of Samuel E. Edwards...
Battle Creek Michigan: Review and Herald Steam Press, 1866. First edition. Publisher's pale blue cloth stamped in blind. 6 5/8 x 4 1/4 inches (17 x 11 cm); 240 pp. (the collation includes the frontispiece). Virtually no wear beyond some shelf-rubbing to the lower fore-corners, a very clean copy internally.
The "Clements Library's catalogue described it as 'one of the most fascinating accounts of the life of a frontier hunter in print'" (Streeter). It "is endlessly fascinating, for while some of the episodes are close to fancy, most of them are probably based on fact, if not wholly accurate. Many of Edwards' adventures occurred in Michigan" and also in Pickaway and Hancock counties in Ohio. Graff 1217; Howes E70; Phillips, American Sporting Books, 108; Streeter 1091.
