From the library of Owen Ralph Brewster, Senator and Governor of Maine, with his signature on the front free endpaper. As Governor, Brewster climbed Mount Katahdin in the summer of 1925 with the founder of Acadia National Park, George Dorr. The 1926 edition of In the Maine Woods includes an account of his ascent. In 1937 Brewster, as a congressman, allied with Myron Avery of the Appalachian Trail Conference, introduced a bill to create a national park in the Maine Woods (and was firmly opposed by Percival Baxter, who saw that the bill went nowhere). This issue has an article by Myron Avery. Four indentations on rear board, a little smudged, some sunfading and foxing to cloth else VG. Interior map, paper covers and text in splendid condition.
