The Derrydale Press, New York - 1931, ii, 124pp, illustrated in dry point by the author. Very light wear, else VG+. Limited to 535 copies signed by the author at the frontispiece; additionally inscribed and signed by author, "To _____ ______, good hunting. Roland Clark." Preface: "Sundry friends suggested, a long time ago, that I write a book. They professed to find in my old shooting log the material necessary to so ambitious a venture, and volunteered their services in editing the same. The writing of a book, they assured me, was quite an easy matter. All that one required was some brains and a capacity for work. They intimated that it would be their part to supply the needed brains. How, I often wonder, should I have done without them! They have come around nights, smoked my tobacco, drunk the liquor prescribed to me by an over-worked yet kindly physician, and ravaged my old diary from cover to dusty cover. One after another, these flatterers have egged me on till out of the mists of old yesterdays, memories come a-flocking. But there are, I take it, hard and fast rules which govern the writer's art. Alas, I know nothing of them. I am piecing together the memory of old days; living them over again, and setting them down in black and white just as they really happened, and I shall wander far, no doubt, from the path of nice composition. Deal kindly with these little yarns and grant me a sportsman's indulgence for all that they may lack." [Attributes: Hard Cover]
