[DERRYDALE PRESS] GRAY, PRENTISS N. North American Big Game. Official Measurement Records Compiled ... for the Boone and Crockett Club...
Bridgeport: Remington Arms Co., 1934. One of approximately 5,000 printed (of which it is believed fewer than a hundred copies are extant). Original oblong printed green wraps, in a later card slipcase. 7 7/8 x 10 inches (20 x 25.5 cm); plate after Rungius, illustrations and plates throughout, with all the detachable tables at the rear present. A fine copy.
This reprints most of the measurement tables from Records of North American Big Game, 1932. It appears that Prentiss Gray's death interrupted the project; in any case, few copies survive, and it is a difficult and desirable Derrydale imprint for the completist. The only mention of the Derrydale Press is a slug on the title-page, making this a hard work to spot, as remarked by Don Frazier. Frazier G17a; Siegel 79.
