A.H. Harding: "Pleasure & Profit Books"

Compiled by A.M. Rapach, 2020, All Rights Reserved

In October 1900, Harding published the first issue of Hunter-Trader-Trapper (aka H-T-T), a 24-page magazine with articles about hunting, trapping; fur farming and the fur trade. The success of the Hunter-Trader-Trapper magazine was due to the instructional nature of the contents on the subjects of hunting and trapping, information previously shared only between friends and family members, and in most cases kept secret by outdoorsmen. The magazine was largely composed of letters written by the readers, longer articles by experienced hunters and trappers, and news concerning the fur trade and current prices. Questions submitted by subscribers were published along with answers, as were correspondents' personal opinions about all sorts of outdoor subjects.

In 1906 the A.R. Harding Publishing Company copyrighted and produced Fox Trapping and Mink Trapping, the first in what would become a long line of instructional books.
