Item #333338

A genial account of a salmon-fishing expedition undertaken by five friends: Mr. and Mrs. Joseph N. Pew, Jr., Mr. and Mrs. Edward B. Leisenring, and Mr. Jay Cooke, all of Philadelphia, to Anticosti Island in July, 1935. Everyone had a wonderful time and caught a lot of salmon, and together subsequently produced this little book, which makes the reader feel as though he had been along . This volume was obviously intended for distribution to the authors’ friends and is very scarce--this is only the second copy we have seen.

Inscribed on the front flyleaf, “for Arnold Whitridge from Jay Cooke”.
