With Rod and Gun in New England and the Maritime Provinces

Excerpt from With Rod and Gun in New England and the Maritime Provinces: With Valuable Supplementary Chapters Reading sportsmen, lovers of the rod and gun, will, we believe, find much to interest them in this volume. The publishers have endeavored in its preparation, to present all the prominent subjects that are of practical value to those who find pleasure in the forests or along the shores and streams of New England and the Maritime Provinces. They have also hoped to contribute in some degree, to a more intimate acquaintance with the natural history and habits of the animals, birds and fishes, sought by the hunters and anglers in the sections treated of. In presenting most of the subjects, the form of dialogue has been employed, in which are interwoven numerous incidents of actual occurrence, in the many years experience of the author. While disclaiming an attempt to produce a pretentious volume, we believe that the great increase in the number of sportsmen who wish to acquire increased knowledge of the habits and peculiarities of our various kinds of game and fish, warrants the issue of such a work as we have prepared. The topics treated of by the various well-known writers are so numerous and of so wide a scope, that they preclude the possibility of obtaining information upon many of them without consulting a number of volumes, while, so far as we are aware, several have never been presented by writers of sportsmen's books. Our grateful acknowledgment of the most generous co-operation and assistance we have received from the eminent writers who have contributed to the work is due; we also tender our sincere thanks to those who have furnished us photographs for many of the illustrations, as well as to those who have kindly permitted us to make use of some of their attractive cuts, for the embellishment of the book. It was suggested that an interesting and pleasing feature of the work would be the addition of a number of portraits of the devotees of the rod and gun, men whom we have been delighted to meet, not only in the hunters camp and by the lake and stream, but in their homes and among the busy and social scenes of every-day life. Acting on this suggestion, we invited a number of those who belong to the great fraternity of sportsmen and those who are otherwise interested in our game, birds and fish, to allow their portraits to appear, and the collection that we are able to present will, no doubt, prove an interesting addition to the volume.
