Philadelphia PA: Claxton, Remsen & Haffelfinger, 1879. Second Edition. Half Leather- Worn. or, How Mrs Maxwell made her natural history collection. 237 pp. ill. Woman's work in the 1870s! Mrs. Maxwell was an ardent big game hunter and wing shooter. In fact, she spent much of her life hunting in Colorado and Wyoming as well as making other trips around the US to assemble what was then considered a natural history collection for her home. A better than vg+ copy, but with some pencil notations regarding correct names of other hunters mention in the book and correct dates for expeditions. So obviously a book owned by someone who knew Mrs. Maxwell. Scarce. VG+. Item #4700
