Book Description George W. Morang & Co., Toronto, 1899. Half-Leather. Condition: Near Fine. A Fine Association set. "The Frontenac Edition"; complete in 16 Volumes, including The Oregon Trail. Half-bound in leather, marbled endpapers, uncut pages, with the book plate of a descendant of Prime Minister Tupper on each volume, and the signed gift inscription in pencil of a second descendant on the first blank. A beautiful, Near Fine set. The book plate - which has been affixed in some volumes upside-down on the rear e.p - is that of Reginald Hibbert Tupper (1893-1972). He was the son of Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper (1855-1927), who in turn was the second son of Charles Tupper (1821-1915), one of the Canadian Fathers of Confederation and the sixth Prime Minister of the Country. The subjects include: Pioneers of France and the New World; The Jesuits in North America; LaSalle and the Discovery of the Great West; The Old Regime in Canada; Count Frontenac and New France under Louis XIV; A Half-Century of Conflict; Montcalm and Wolfe; The Conspiracy of Pontiac and the Indian War after the Conquest of Canada'; and The Oregon Trail. Whale (#1144 in Hudson's Bay to Haro Strait) describes these works as "Parkman's wonderful histories". Larned devotes a full column to the set in 'The Literature of American History: A Bibliographical Guide' (#3672), noting, in part: "The New Library Edition is the latest and best." "No man ever came to his calling more perfectly equipped. He knew the Indian at first hand, he had made a personal study of his ground, his literary acquaintance included the best men on his subject, his means were sufficient to enable him to pay for research and command rarities in print and manuscript, his judgement was rarely at fault, difficult as were many of the cases he passed upon in the course of his studies." And again: "No one who has not prosecuted some original research on the same line can have an idea of the extreme care with which he worked, or of the almost petty detail which he was at pains to master, not to use necessarily, but simply to inform himself thoroughly of the circumstance or the man." Mary Ellen Snodgrass devotes seven pages to Parkman's histories in her 'Encyclopedia of Frontier Literature' (Oxford University Press, 1997). These volumes were, of course, originally published separately, sometimes being serialized, and had already made their mark in the literature of the history of North America. Indeed, 'The Oregon Trail' has become a standard work of reference for those studying the westward movement of settlers and gold-seekers. This is a very handsome set, with most volumes NF in tight binding, with uncut pages attesting to its minimal use, and desirable even without the connection to the 6th Prime Minister of Canada. Becoming increasingly uncommon as a complete set in such condition. Size: Octavo. Seller Inventory # 004405
