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.
