About this Item

New York, 1880. 8vo, publisher's salmon illustrated cloth, 400 pp. "(Jackson) first visited there in 1877, ten years after the United States purchased Alaska from Russia, and returned repeatedly. He lobbied churches, the federal government, and the general public to help establish churches, schools, and civil government for the "district," which had not yet attained status as a territory and for which Congress had not yet made provisions for governmental structures. He helped establish a mission school there on his first Alaskan trip in 1877 (under the direction of Amanda McFarland), was present at the organization of the first Alaskan Presbyterian church in 1879 (Fort Wrangell), and recruited missionaries and funds. The U.S. Commissioner of Education's report for 1883 recognized Jackson's efforts, indicating that Jackson had presented approximately 900 addresses promoting Alaska and its welfare." - ANB. A very good copy with excellent contents. Front hinge overopened at title page but still sturdy, chruch bookplate removed from front pastedown, some light shelfwear to boards. Folding map in excellent condition. Contents fine. A nice copy. Bookseller Inventory # 15033
