Book Description MBF Publishing, Portland, OR, Davis, CA, 1989. Cloth Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Hagerbaumer, David (illustrator). First Edition.. 384 pages. Bright gilt titles with pair of decoys in outline on front cover, gilt titles on spine. Very good dust jacket, no tears. One light corner bump on rear cover. The authors created this book to fill the gap in the recorded history of North America's decoy heritage. Virtually all other decoy books cover & recover the Mississippi River Valley, Eastern Canada, and the Atlantic Coast. The Pacific Flyway and its decoy history have remained undocumented until now. Presented are the lives and works of major Pacific Coast carvers, who by the quality & quantity of their work, left an indelible mark on the carving heritage of this great region. Included are factory decoys by Pacific Coast companies, selected unknown works, and makers with less output but whose quality of of workmanship is undisputable. The large numbers of makers represented here will demonstrate that the Pacific Coast is a region rich in decoy making history. These men may now be recognized for their achievements, amny rank with those of the top creators of the decoy art form. Decoys in 100's of color and black & white photographs, vintage photographs of market gunners, horse seining for slamon on the Columbia river, duck boats, etc., depicting life on the foreshore, marshes and rivers. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Signed by Authors & Photographer. Bookseller Inventory # 16095

Book Description MBF Publishing, Davis, California, USA, 1990. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. Mortensen, Robert S.; Hagerbaumer, David (illustrator). 1st Edition. This book is the only title that takes an in-depth look at the previously under appreciated Pacific Coast decoys, decoy carvers, and hunting traditions. Hundreds of decoys shown with black and white photography along with regional information on style, etc. and numerous biographies of carvers. The book took many years to produce and after publication delays, was finally released in 1990. It is thorough, well organized, and all encompassing. This book isn't meant to introduce a reader to the subject; instead, it is meant to be the ultimate source for a collector, curator, and scholar. Scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 001888
