[ARCTIC] STONE, ANDREW J. The Andrew J. Stone Explorations in Arctic and Subarctic America.
[New York:] Published by the American Museum of Natural History, 1905. Number 55 of 100 copies only, the copy issued to R.G. Hazard with the compliments of the museum (this inscription in manuscript on the limitation leaf). Contemporary three-quarters morocco gilt, the spine lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers. Folio, 12 3/4 x 9 1/2 inches. 38 pp., additional title at rear (likely the original wrapper), illustrations from photographs. Repair to a short tear in the lower margin of the final leaf, very minor thumbsoiling and spotting, the binding extremities rubbed, bookplate of Walter Rutherford Peterson.
In his first expedition to Northern British Columbia, Stone returned with several specimens of Big Horn Sheep which were purchased by the Museum of Natural History. This volume highlights his 2 year long second expedition, begun in 1897, yielded many more specimens, memorialized with this volume which also features photographs of natives and landscapes. The work is from a low limitation thus rare: no copy in the record since 1982.
