    Recreation Bound Volume With Outcault Art (G. O. Shields, 1903-04). The magazine Recreation was all about the turn-of-the-century (early 20th, that is) outdoorsman, sportsman, and nature lover with articles about fishing, hunting, wildlife in general, and sports. The issues are chockfull of black and white photos and original artwork, including that of comics pioneer Richard F. Outcault. Two years' worth of the publication have been impressively and somewhat lavishly bound into a volume that has kept the 100+ year old issues (minus their covers) remarkably fresh. The volume itself shows its age at the corners, but retains a sturdiness that belies its age. A rare find, and an interesting glimpse into a century past.
