Limited to 150 numbered copies (Berger A64). Printed on Arches Mouldmade paper by Henry Morris at the Bird & Bull Press. This book contains Alexander Wilson's long poem "The Foresters" describing his first "pedestrian journey" with two companions to the Falls of Niagara in the Autumn of 1804. Wilson's work is a wonderfully descriptive account of the spectacular sights of the American wilderness. With engravings by Wesley W. Bates, one of the top-rated wood engravers in North America. Bates works in the classic British style and has produced thirteen full-page engravings plus the title page cartouche for this book. Composed in Dante types by Michael and Winifred Bixler. Includes a foreword by Henry Morris, a synopsis of the poem by Robert Cantwell, and notes on the text.
