"Sam The Sportsman" was illustrated and written by Frank Adams. This brilliant 1900s rare childrens book features color illustrations of a man at the turn of the century in the English countryside. Same is going duck hunting for his supper. The rhyming text is accompanied by pen and ink illustration at the top of each page.
Twenty four pages in length, this vintage picture book has color illustrations on every other page (12 in all). Pages are printed on coated paper on one side only and Japan-folded (not cut on the end).
A scarce Frank Adams-illustrated children's picture book from the early 20th century in good condition. Brown board covers with paste-down illustration and cloth spine. One page has a small tear at upper right outside picture frame (see photo two) and one page has been separated at the Japan fold (does not detract from page).
Great gift for children, hunters and outdoors men alike.
