Lot Details

Lot 17
[ADIRONDACKS] A Week's Sojourn in the Adirondack Mountains [cover title: A Week of Camping at Third Lake Campsite 1927].
N.p.: s.n., 1927. Typescript with mounted photographs in original black stiff binder. 31 pp.; a double-page and a full-page hand-drawn map, 29 mounted gelatin silver prints. First leaf with minor glue residue near gutter, one or two spots, else fine.
An anonymous narrative of a camping trip in the Adirondacks. The party fished for trout (though sometimes ended up with shiners), foraged for blueberries and raspberries, and met some characters along the way, including (to the author's surprise) a female fire warden whom he observes "must have been descended from sturdy stock." The two maps are carefully hand-drawn in black and red ink, and upon close inspection the pencil lines are visible. A charming narrative and photographic record of roughing it in the Adirondacks in the 1920s.
