Catalogue Note

First and only edition, number 3 of 20 copies, privately printed by the author and presented to his friends. This copy was given to Dr. Harlow Brooks, whom McAleenan also thanks in his dedication.

The diary of one of the "winter re-unions" of the author and his friends (Dr. Brooks, John Murgatroyd, George Clifton, Ed. Deming, and others). "This hunt ... would be largely photographic," McAleenan writes. "Of late years, the camera has appealed to us more than the rifle" (p. 3).
