Abercrombie & Fitch Library

The Abercrombie & Fitch Library was issued by Arno Press, New York, in 1967. It comprised 42 reprints of out-of-print sporting books. The purpose of the series was to present rediscovered works by great sportsmen of the past, as they appeared in the original editions. “Whether they deal with hunting and fishing, with exploration, or with travel, these are the books of extraordinary men who sought extraordinary adventures-and found them.” (from the dust wrapper). The books in the series follow a uniform design and are easily recognizable.
