Cains River Map Illustrated by John Rice

Winning Bid: $200.00

Item condition: New



Wildlife artist and illustrator John Rice created this map of the Cains River watershed for the On the Cains: Atlantic Salmon and Sea Run Brooktrout on the Miramichi’s Greatest Tributary.  The map features portraits of six of the river’s most famous personalities: Harry Allen, George Allen, Wendell Allen, John Brophy, Charlie Wade, and Seabury Stanton as well as an additional 6 wildlife scenes: brook trout, Atlantic salmon, ruffed grouse, Canada Jay, black bear, and woodland caribou.   To help readers find important places along the river that are discussed in the text of the book the map lists the locations of dozens of historically important Cains River sites from the headwaters down to Black Brook.   Among the items located on the map are Indian portage routes, caribou barrens, historic salmon pools, and the locations of iconic camps like Hopewell Lodge, Wildcat, Deepwoods, and Camp Stanton.  This map is destined to become an important item in the history of the Miramichi and Cains River salmon fishing culture.

This stunning artwork is 30 by 22 inches with a generous extra margin for mounting, which is essentially a full size reproduction of the original, and is a high quality giclee print made from a professional 140 mgb scan of the original artwork.  The only prints of this artwork that have been available are a handful of donations to the MSA.  The print will be rolled into a professional shipping tube for transport to the winner.

As a special consideration for the Miramichi Salmon Association, we are going to include a buy it now price of $300 on this item.  We will print as many additional copies as we have orders at $300 each.  Funds are in U.S. dollars.  Shipping to either the U.S. or Canada is included at no additional charge.  UK or European buyers will be assessed shipping charges in excess of Canadian shipments, probably not more than an additional $20.  All funds from this auction will be donated immediately to the Miramichi Salmon Association to help with their important field work on the Cains and Miramichi River watersheds.
