Rolf in the Woods: The Adventures of a Boy Scout with Indian Quonab and Little Dog Skookum

By Ernest Thompson Seton / [Richard Adams]

London: Constable and Company Ltd, 1911. 1st Edition . Good. 6.25 x 8 inches (15.5 x 20.5 cm). First UK edition. Green cloth binding with heavy fading and discolouration to covers. Foxing to endpapers, half title page and final blank. Vertical crease to rear free endpaper, clean text throughout. From the private library of Richard Adams, author of Watership Down, with his attractive engraved bookplate to front pastedown endpaper. Adams was a great admirer of Ernest Thompson Seton and was clearly influenced by his writings, as he explained in his essay 'Some Ingredients of Watership Down': 'I derived a lot of help and comfort from books of Ernest Thompson Seton. He didn't dodge danger, fear, bloodshed and death. Just the contrary - on the straightforward, physical level he laid it on with a trowel. He simply gave it to you perfectly straight. Raggylug and the snake, Molly Cottontail going through the ice, Hekla and the Silver Fox drifting down to death on the ice floes, the nest-building sparrow who accidently hanged himself in a length of horsehair, the murder... of Krag, the Kootenay Ram - I have never forgotten these and similar incidents in Seton. If the physical truth is cruel and terrible, be a man and say so... and you may help your reader more than you know. This idea underlies the crushed hedgehog on the road in Watership Down, Bigwig in the snare and the gassing of the Sandleford warren recounted by Holly.' An interesting association copy. Overall condition is Good. Size: 6.25 x 8 inches (15.5 x 20.5 cm). Hardback. Printed pages: xv, 437
