Comments: An original drawing of a camping scene that served as an illustration for the book "In the North Woods of Maine: The Story of a Winter in the Wilderness Fifty Years Ago", written by E.E. Thomas. Part of the "Pioneer Life Series", the book details the trip taken by the author and his cousin to the primeval forests of Northern Maine. From September to April of 1875, the young duo built a cabin, explored the woods and hunted for food. Horace Boylston Dummer (1878-1945), provided a series of ink drawings to be printed with the adventure tale. Dummer, born and raised in Massachusetts, is known as a Rockport realist and a plein-air painter and was a founding member of the Rockport Art Association. Minor overall wear, pinholes to corners. Includes original editing notes. Entire set of drawings available in our gallery.

Dear Argosy. THANK YOU very very much. I ordered the book "A Case of Removal of the Lower Jaw, for Osteo-Sarcoma of Immense Size" by George C. Blackman. I was pleased beyond words just to think that I was getting an original copy of a book that my great great grandfather wrote. When it arrived it was an even bigger treasure for me, as his own handwriting was in the upp right corner of the cover, giving the book to a fellow colleague. Thanks again so very much for helping me bring my ancestry searching a little closer and more personal. - S.B. Pratt
