About this Item

First edition. "During this exploration, Mr. Hind lived almost constantly among the Crees and Chippeways, whose habits and peculiarities he was most eager to study, and prompt to record. Everything in their life had not only the charm of novelty to him, but as a man of science, he was anxious to observe all the facts which may prove stepping-stones in tracing their origins and their history (Sabin)." Vol. I illustrated with 33 in-text engravings, 14 chromoxylographs including the frontispiece, and 5 maps, including one large folding map. Vol. II illustrated with 43 woodcuts, 6 chromoxylographs including the frontispiece, and 3 maps, 2 of which are folding maps. The folding map facing p. 267 is really four maps on one leaf. 8vo. 2 vols. I: [6 (4 blank)], frontis., [2 (1 blank)], (vi)?xx, 494, [2 (blank)] pp.; 13 plts. & 5 maps. (lacking one plt.) II: [2], frontis., [2 (1 blank)], v?xvi, 472 pp.; 5 plts. & 3 maps. (lacking one plt.) Sabin 31934; Albany, Travel, 630; Field 699; Pilling, Siouan, 36; Wagner-Camp 361. Vol. I in half sheep over marbled paper boards, vol. II in publisher's cloth; both volumes with covers detached, spines mostly gone, text blocks splitting. Vol. I: Tape repairs to folding map, with other folds splitting and an interior tear or two; lacking (only) plate facing p. 36 (illustrating the same scene as the frontispiece, which is present). Vol. II: Lacking (only) the plate facing p. 123; folding map facing p. 267 torn along one fold, and folding map facing p. 222 chipped in one corner, with minor loss. Plates still impressive and often quite gorgeous; however many with streaks/patches of a characteristic sort of darkening, especially in vol. II. Mercantile Library stamps to bindings and interiors; pages generally free of foxing and, while lightly dust-soiled, not brittle. Much compromised, as described; its price, much reduced.
