Large 8vo. Original burgundy cloth, upper cover titled in gilt, alongside a gilt vignette of an elk, spine titled in gilt, top edges gilt; pp. [2], xiv, 274, [publisher's advertisements], with a photographic portrait frontispiece, 5 fine coloured plates by E.G. Caldwell, and 64 photographic plates on 34 leaves; a little offseting from endpapers, as usual, only occasional light spotting internally, but otherwise an extremely sound and well-preserved copy of this extensive big game account.
First edition. Heller: 'Adventures in North and South America with loads of hunting, including guanaco in the pampas of Argentina; guemal deer and wild cattle in the Andes; caribou in Labrador and Newfoundland; and moose and caribou in Quebec.' From the preface by F.C. Selous: 'Whether in Patagonia, Norway, Newfoundland, or here on our Worplesdon cricket ground, Mr. Prichard has always played the game as a true sportsman should' (p. vi). Most of Prichard's exploits took place in Canada.
