Book Description Champoeg Press, Portland, Oregon, 1954. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Limited. This was the second book published by Champoeg Press, one of the early manifestations of the restless mind of Richard Abel, a giant of the book world in the second half of the 20th century. Starting as the student manager of the co-op bookstore at Reed College in 1944, he developed that small enterprise as a resource for academic books to the extent that 15 years later, it had become Richard Abel & Co., supplying books to college libraries on the west coast. In the course of dealing with academic libraries, he created the approval system that remains the basis of service today; the next 15 years brought huge expansion, then overexpansion, and today the remnants of the bankrupt Abel Company are the foundation of Blackwell North America. Doing one thing was never enough for Abel, so in 1952, as the Reed College Bookstore was on its rising trajectory, he tapped the resources of the campus, starting with the noted calligrapher Lloyd Reynolds, to start an artisanal publishing house, doing limited letterpress runs of what Abel and advisors in the college History Department considered to be significant documents of the settlement of the American West. McComas's 1862 journal of a trip from Iowa City to Oregon was the second document selected, and the first designed and printed by Lawton Kennedy, who was chosen after the original press volunteers lost interest. As a footnote to Champoeg Press history, Abel produced about a dozen books under the imprint from 1952 to 1960. At that point, the Richard Abel Company's dynamic growth fully occupied his available hours, and the press became inactive. It resumed publication in 1978, after the demise of the Abel Company, when he had managed to retain ownership of a small book distributorship and he needed both additional sources of income and larger challenges; the books from the later period are mostly on fly fishing, which turned out to be a more profitable subject than Western Americana. It was at this point that he also started Timber Press, which eventually grew to become the world's leading publisher of serious books on horticulture. And the curious might note that the ever-thrifty Abel recycled the ISBN prefix for Champoeg Press for several books published by Areopagitica Press, another imprint he started in 1987 to publish books in pre-Enlightenment European history, which did not turn out to be a very good idea. The book is 86 pp, reproducing also some of the original drawings from the journal; the colophon states that it is an edition of 500 copies. Bound in beige cloth with a primitive black eagle decoration on the front panel; a clean tight unmarked copy in a yellowed glassine sleeve.
