Lot Details

Lot 47
[BIG GAME - LAKE SUPERIOR] GUNN, ALEXANDER. A Canoe Journey Along the North Shore of Lake Superior and Hunting Big Game.
New York: [Privately Printed], 1902. First edition. Contemporary three-quarters green morocco gilt. With letterpress title, the text paginated from 197-324. A few spots to title and edges, rubbing to joint and extremities.
A scarce and somewhat anomalous title, this is possibly the second part of a two volume work by Gunn recording his letters and journals. We trace only one copy under this title and similarly paginated in OCLC, located at Cleveland Public Library. This work records a canoe trip in 1881 and a big game hunt in New Mexico in 1896. Gunn (1837-1901) was an Ohio industrialist who withdrew to the Zoar commune. His writings were printed at the De Vinne Press (where this was likely created) and published in 1902.
