Dealer Notes
“A famous American business magnate, Fleischmann had this sumptuous work privately printed and distributed” (Czech). The book reproduces from his journal descriptions of hunting expeditions to Spitsbergen via Norway, Greenland, British Columbia, and Alaska, illustrated with his own photographs. The book was intended for presentation by the author, and in other copies the preprinted leaf bound at the start of the book was completed with the author’s dedication; in this copy the leaf has not been completed. There are also variants of the binding, the two versions we have seen including the present version, and an ornate leather binding often in poor condition.
