Des Moines, Iowa: Carter & Hussey, 1896. First Edition, First Printing. 5 3/8 X 7 3/4 Inches. 168 PP. Item #2388
Original publisher boards with gilt title-stamping to front cover. Signe and dated by Hussey under the frontis portrait. Noted Des Moines leader and conservationist, Hussey's poems are filled with a love of the outdoors and nature. The book chronicles a seven day rafting trip on the Des Moines River. Binding a bit broken and scuffing and writing to first few pages. FFEP excised. A less than perfect copy, but signed by Hussey nonetheless.
