Footnotes

  • 'Spring-Notes in Norway' was the result of a five week ornithological shooting, fishing and sketching expedition in May/June 1886. The original manuscript notebook was started on Sept 30th 1886 and contained the author's observations on the above subjects, some sketches, newspaper cuttings and photographs. The following note appears in red ink on the index page:
    1893 - as regards Norway, all the material in this book has now been amalgamated and worked up into chapters, in 'Fair Copy', for my proposed 'Scandinavian Volume' - NB. Arctic articles not used, signed with initials 'AC'.

    'Wild Norway' contains notes subsequent to publication in 1897. The manuscript notebook contains zoological notes and reflections on salmon fishing and big game intended for a second edition of the book.

    Provenance: These works can be seen having sold at a sale of 'Abel Chapman, Naturalist, a Collection of his Books, Drawings and Manuscripts', offered for sale by Chas. J. Sawyer, New Bond Street, London 1979, page 7, Lot 8. (original catalogue included).
