Horace Cox. 1903 London, 1st edn, 191pp, 26 plates. Very good plus, inscribed/dated by author in a variant binding. Item #000628

Scarce book on hunting in Alaska and very much sought-after. The author, Colonel Claude Cane, a Britisher, laments in the beginning of the book about the sour deal the Dominion of Canada got from the border commission that established the final border between the Alaska and Canada. He hunted on the Kenai Peninsula and around Lake Kussiloff, then he went to the mainland and shot bears, and did more hunting on the Kussiloff River and Lake Tustamena. Hunting for Dall sheep, moose, and brown bear.
