[PHOTOGRAPHY] Our visit to Betula Lodge, Camp of Henry A. Bishop, Carr Pond, Portage, Maine, November 1912.
[New York: privately printed, December 1912]. Full brown pebbled leather, lettered in gilt as above, marbled endpapers. 6 7/8 x 11 1/8 inches (17.5 x 29 cm); printed title leaf, four original typescript poems, 54 black and white photographs on card mounts. Joints tender, binding rather rubbed, internally sound.
The members of the printed title leaf include General Henry A. Bishop, Mrs. Henry A. Bishop, Henry A. Bishop Jr., Mr. & Mrs. Waldo C. Bryant, Miss Sybil Nash, Roderick McNeil and Captain W.S. Green. Henry Alfred Bishop was a prominent director of several railroads and companies at the time this album was issued, presumably in an edition limited solely to the participants. This visit to a snowy camp in rural Maine is depicted in detail, including views of the guests, the environs, and a dozen deer hunting images. The hunt appears to have been very successful. An interesting souvenir of a hunt in America's Gilded Age.
