  8. Annabel, Russell. Hunting And Fishing In Alaska - Knopf - NY - 1948 1st. ed [Although the author and his family moved to Alaska from Washington State only a year after his birth in 1904 , the family returned to Washington a year later and it was not until 1922, excited by stories heard in his father's Washington lumber camp about an Alaskan mountain man by the name of Tex Cobb, that young Annabel would return to Alaska. Russell (Rusty) Annabel located and became friends with Cobb, learning much about Alaska's wilderness and it's ways from the veteran and becoming more and more excited about guiding and writing. While the exact period is a bit sketchy, his determination to be an outdoor writer found him back in the lower 48 studying journalism at the University of Washington where it has been verified that he was in attendance as late as January 1927. By the early 30's he was back in Alaska proving his literary capabilities with regular articles now appearing in Field & Stream, Outdoor Life, Sports Afield, and later in Hunting & Fishing, Argosy, Reader's Digest & Saturday Evening Post. Annabel married for a short time, divorced and then in 1948 met his second wife Del Mergens at Elmondorf Air Force Base near Anchorage. By the mid 1950's as more and more settlers began arriving and finding this new intrusion difficult to accept, Annabel and his family left Alaska. Shortly thereafter he and Dell separated and although he continued to write after moving to Minneapolis, New York and finally to Mexico it was never with the same intensity he had when writing about Alaska. Considered one of the best pure writers of sporting books, Annabel Russell was once described by Ernest Hemingway as the "finest outdoor writer" he ever read. Annabel died in 1979. Of particular interest to this first edition is a gift inscription, (originally on the front free end paper, now "tipped in" to the inside front cover) written and signed by USAF Brigadier General Dale Gaffney who's distinguished career from 1917 to 1950 included among other high ranking Arctic assignments, "Commanding General, Alaskan Wing, Air Transport Command" One wonders if Gaffney himself a big-game hunter, may have known Annabel particularly when the author met his second wife at USAF headquarters in Anchorage. Hunting And Fishing In Alaska is an exciting addition to a big game library and one that rarely comes along in a first edition with such an interesting inscription] 341p - illus with photos & clr frontis by Howard Robinson - New black ¼ binding with gold foil titles over original burgundy boards with fresh end papers - vg+.

Because it seemed important to describe a winter mountain-sheep hunt, for instance, I have included "To Kill A Mountain Ram," even though I appear in it as a sixteen year old youngster, and in the next tale, somewhat incongruously as a grown man holding a professional guide's license" end of quote.] 218p - illus with photos - forward by Ellen Enzler-Herring - bound in full reddish-brown leather with glt titles and glt deco cvr. - aeg - raised bands - marbled eps - sewn in silk marker - limited to 3000 hand numbered copies - f.

Patterson , who had been serving as an Indian Army Officer was chosen to oversee the project. Besides the usual obstacles customary to such an undertaking, frequent fatal attacks by a pair of savage lions intent on carrying workers off into the bush, created near hysteria.
