Bear-Hunting in the White Mountains or Alaska and British Columbia Revisited

London: Chapman and Hall, 1891. First edition. 12mo, [v], vi, [3], 156, [1]pp., illustrations, folding map at rear. Green cloth boards gilt stamped on spine. Very good with some light rubbing to edges and corners and dulling to spine. Interesting copy of this hunting narrative from the English explorer and archaeologist, Heywood Walter Seton-Karr, with an autograph letter signed to his cousin attached to the ffep. The 17-line letter is in regards to a pamphlet sent to the author, which Seton-Karr found quite interesting, and briefly discusses a few names mentioned in the publication. There are also a couple short newspaper articles about Seton-Karr attached to the front endpapers.
The work itself is wonderfully illustrated throughout with both plates and chapter illustrations depicting the author's travels and hunting and fishing adventures in Alaska and Canada.
