Book Description Imprint unknown. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 088830045X Reprint of Mackenzie's original 18th century publication of "Voyages." cxxxii, 412 pp. A fascinating account of the descent of the river now named after Alexander Mackenzie, "who was the first white man to navigate its length from its source in the Great Slave Lake to its mouth at the Arctic Ocean, and the first European to see the Arctic Ocean from Canada. He completed his journey of 2,990 miles in 120 days. Having resolved to continue exploration to the west, he returned to England to purchase instruments in preparation for the journey. Leaving from Fort Chipewyan, he reached the Pacific Ocean by way of Bella Coola River, and thus accomplished the first crossing of the American continent to the north of Mexico. The vast region of the Rocky Mountains and the central coastal zone was thus opened up at last, and Mackenzie rose to the top rank of explorers in the American continent. His expedition was undertaken on behalf of the North West Fur Company, which was attempting to break through the monopoly of the Hudson's Bay Company. Mackenzie's investigations, although pursued at so early a period of Arctic exploration, were remarkable for their accuracy; Sir John Franklin more than once expressed his surprise at being able to corroborate their correctness in his own explorations several decades later. This is the first and finest edition of one of the most important Canadian books." Spine and cover boards are in near new condition. Edges show minor wear, may have a small stain or two.
