First of this edition following the 1888 true first edition of the Chicago pioneer and fur trader (1802086). Tight, attractive copy of this early "Lakeside Classic," the annual keepsake given by this printer and publisher to friends and clients starting in 1903. Early Lakesides from their "green period" -- the first thirty years -- have become quite scarce in recent years. Hubbard's is a classic account of the early Northwest and the Chicago area.
