Sporting Adventures in the Far West

MURPHY, John Mortimer.
London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1879.
Octavo, original red cloth stamped in black, gilt-lettered on front cover and spine. Spine and covers dirty and/or faded, some foxing throughout and to fore-edge.

The author spent seven years in the Far West, part of that time before the railway came to the area and there were few white people except for the soldiers living and working there. He wanted to "give the general characteristics, the haunts, habits, and the best method of hunting the largest class of game; and as my facts are derived from personal experience, and from that of some of the most famous scouts and hunters I met in the West, I hope they may be found generally accurate".
