Lovely design for a personal book which tells the story of Libby Beaman who kept this journal, sketchbook and letters during a year (1879-18880) in the Pribilofs, a group of four volcanic islands off the coast of mainland Alaska, in the Bering Sea. Libby died in 1932 aat the age of 88 and it was then that her granddaughter, Betty John, took the remnants of the journal and turned it into what became this book. Betty John SIGNED this copy without inscription and dated it on May 24, 1988. Book measures 7-1/2" x 12-1/2" and has 201 pristine pages. There is also a bookmark included which advertised Betty John's lecture about the book at the Women'c City Club. The final photo here is Libby holding Betty John in New York.
