The print depicts a view of Wolfe's camp on the Gaspé. In the l.r. is a boat holding several men who appear to be hunting with guns, or perhaps guarding the camp.
Dec. 1975 - The print is creased vertical into thirds; this is the manner in which it was bound into the magazine. There is a large stain in the centre and the right side has impressions from a printed page. There are also 3 tears on the crease upper edge, one of which has been repaired from the verso with heavy cotton tape and glue.
