Vette,

One question please for my education: why does a "first edition" have both the date of the "first edition" and a "reprinted date" listed? To a layman it seems like when they printed the first edition they wouldn't have known at what date it was going to be reprinted? I realize that it is only one month later and an exact reprint of the first edition, but it seems like it would effect the value etc. I have just begun collecting these classic books and this information would be helpful.

Hey guys, sorry. Been super busy today. This is a good question and a common thing to look for in these old (very cool) books. This copy is a true first edition as part of the second printing, which is what that inscription you asked about details. I have actually seen some copies of this book as a first edition, third printing showing the dates you noted in my pic along with a third printing date. Copies of books this age that are first edition, first printing would not have dates listed on that page and are extremely rare as they are over 100 years old and, as you can surmised from that page, the first printing took place over less than one month so was probably a limited printing to begin with. I hope this makes sense but, if not, I am happy to answer other questions.

@PHOENIX PHIL That movie has become one of my wife's favourites so this will be a Christmas present for her. I will bring her by the booth at SCI and if you talk nice she might let you borrow it, that way you will have to come down to southern AZ and can go out and burn some gunpowder in my doubles.
One of my favorite films as well! I watched it a few times before I jumped the pond for my first safari. I may need time watch it again soon.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
