Tan leather, printed endpapers of dog paw prints, slipcased. Very fine in very fine slipcase. Sportsman George Bird Evans (December 26, 1906-May 5, 1998) was an author, illustrator, and dog breeder. He was born in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, and was educated at Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Tech and the Chicago Art Institute. He earned pocket money playing jazz saxophone. Having married Kay Harris of Wheeling in January 1931, he moved to New York City where he freelanced as an illustrator for Cosmopolitan and other publications. In 1939, Evans bought a historic farm near Brandonville in Preston County, where he developed the Old Hemlock line of grouse-hunting setters. Commissioned as a lieutenant (junior grade) by the U.S. Navy, he spent World War II in Washington doing perspective drawings to illustrate repairs to damaged planes and ships.Evans wrote 27 upland shooting books based on his shooting journals begun in 1934, and 115 magazine stories and reviews, as well as book introductions and other short pieces. He published many of his own books, many of them limited editions. He wrote of the beauty of bird-dog grouse hunting, not always accompanied by a kill. Living an eccentric and reclusive life, George and Kay jointly wrote five mystery books from 1950 to 1960 using the pen name Brandon Bird. One, Hawk Watch, was set in Berkeley Springs.Exciting his readers with descriptions of his hunting experiences and life at Old Hemlock, Evans developed a loyal following. He often castigated state hunting authorities for the state’s overlong grouse season which, he said, was responsible for the birds’ depleted population. Evans died in Morgantown. By Peggy Ross.
