As New. Signed by Illustrator(s) Sunrise Publishing Company. 1994, Stated First Edition. 4to, softcover. I was lucky enough to be the one who introduced Author, Duck Biscotti, to T. O. Duncan, who did the illustrations for this book. Inside is my hand written letter to Tom, requesting he Remarque the book and promising to pay the Remarque fee. He wrote back on the same note, "Tain't no such thing for you, Tom." The Remarque is a male bufflehead on water with another coming in to land behind the first, and SIGNED "T. O. Duncan, '95". (For those of you familiar with Dale's Decoy Den, Tom also created our Logo, again, gratis. ) Also laid in is the original prospectus for this title. An amazing work, describing the publications of many outdoor publishing houses. Some, but not all, include Outing, Forest and Stream, A. R. Harding, Angler's Club of New York, Boone and Crockett, A. S. Barnes, Wildlife Management Institute, Greenberg, D. Van Norstrand, Abercrombie and Fitch, National Sporting Fraternity, Amwell Press, Freshet Press, George Bird Evans and Old Hemlock, Premier Press, Meadow Run Press, Safari Press. And more!

Fine, interior very fine. A unique offering. ISBN: 1881755053.
