Dahlquist, John E., Ralph B. Beal, Raymond E. Overmire et al.  
The Gopher, Volume XXXI, 1918

Publisher: Minneapolis: , 1918..
28 X 21 cm. G/No dj. Brown leather, blind titles on spine & decoration on front board, gilt titles on front board, 656 pp, many b & w photographs & color drawings & paintings, index. Some foxing, slightly musty, some surace chipping to leather, joints starting. The entire annual is printed on coated stock, with four tipped-in paintings by Prof. S. C. Burton, a number of stylized color drawings, and photos or b & w drawings on most of the remaining pages. Looking through it for students who later became well-known, the best I can find is Fred Osanna, president of the Twin City Rapid Transit company at the time it abandoned its streetcar system in the 1950s. Some of the faculty and regents later became members of the Hall family, e. g. George E. Vincent, Marion L. Burton (looking natty in a top hat on p 34), and Pierce Butler, who is memorialized by a street in St. Paul. Shipping weight 7 lb.

Hoover, Helen (Ill. Adrian Hoover)  
A Place in the Woods

Publisher: New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1969..
First Edition. 22 X 15 cm. Near Fine/VG-. White cloth, gilt titles on spine, gilt decoration on front board, top edge dyed green, xvii, 292, [4] pp, 9 b&w drawings included in pagination. Spine ends slightly rolled in, bottom edges of boards lightly soiled, gift inscription on recto of ffep. DJ has a few tears under 2 cm and two fairly neat scarf tears (11 cm and 8 cm) to bottom half of front panel, small chips and creases at spine ends and corners, rear panel is lightly soiled, and paper is browning, especially at edges; in Brodart archival cover. This engaging book of life in Minnesota's north woods (just across the lake from Canada) has been reprinted many times, and as recently as 1999. The Hoovers come in for more than their share of trouble in their first year and a half--a bear tries to break in to the log cabin, the basement collapses, both Hoovers are injured in an auto accident that nearly kills the author, a tree falls just feet from the house, and a shed burns. All of these potentially catastrophic incidents, combined with the couple's precarious finances, provide the air of an old serial with a cliffhanger at the end of each installment, while the intervals between disasters contain accounts of the beauty of the woods and the charm of the wild creatures that make the effort to survive worthwhile.
