Square tight staple binding with clean bright interior. Signed on title page by author and world decoy authority John Sullivan. Sullivan has authored six books on waterfowl art and decoys in particular. From September 1991-February 1992, he served on the Sporting Art Committee of the Maryland Historical Society and helped design the Society?s exhibit, Chesapeake Wildfowl Hunting/Maryland's Finest Decoys, as well as providing all of the historic images in the Exhibit catalogue and numerous decoys from his personal collection for the Exhibit. He has exhibited parts of his collection at the Havre de Grace Decoy Museum, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, the Havre de Grace Maritime Museum, and the Harford County Historical Society. He has appeared on Maryland PublicTelevision and been interviewed by the Voice of America as a part of programs promoting the importance of decoys as American folk art. Finally, he has shared his knowledge and promoted the preservation of the waterfowling tradition by being a frequent speaker at such venues as the Johns Hopkins University, the Maryland Historical Society, Ducks Unlimited, The Wednesday Club of the Maryland Club, The Outlaw Gunners Men?s Club, the Rotary Club of Harford County, the Havre de Grace Chamber of Commerce, and the Marshy Point Nature Center. In 1976, he was named ?Admiral of the Chesapeake? by Governor Marvin Mandel, and again so recognized by Governor William Donald Schaefer in 1991. In June 2011, Governor Martin O?Malley named him Chesapeake Bay Ambassador in recognition of his ?extraordinary work in chronicling the history, art and tradition of waterfowling on the Chesapeake Bay.? John Sullivan is presently serving as Consultant for the Havre de Grace Decoy Museum, and is a member of the Maryland Historical Society's Maritime Committee. He is a life-long resident of Fallston, Maryland and has been an Active Member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America since 1993. Bookseller Inventory #
