Item Description: A. Cote, Quebec, 1889. Hardcover. Book Condition: Poor. First Edition. [iii]-ix, [1]-154, [1]-400. Selling as-is as an incomplete volume in poor condition though largely complete and in a curious binding of birch bark: The (unsigned, apparently 2nd half of 20th century) binding is birch bark over stiff card. Binding is sound but contents poor. Title page is typed, first original leaf is the Introduction [p. iii]. The first two leaves and all final leaves from page 300 are soft/deteriorated, with loss of paper and some text from pp. 350-400: most of each leaf legible, but some few not at all good, part of 383/4 is detached, parts of a few leaves are stuck together. . The binder [perhaps as an exercise in learning the craft] evidently attempted to preserve a few fragments by mounting partial leaves to white blanks, and transcribed some pages in type [395-397, 399]. The final leaf in this volume is part of p. 400 [mounted] - not 413 as it should be. There is no map, and no errata. This volume: [iii]-ix, [1]-154, [1]-400. Contents ugly with black mold-like splotches. This appears to have been stabilized: no odor and does not transfer when rubbed. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # Books008445

Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 2 Volumes. 8vo. pp. ix, 154, 413, [2]incl. errata; vi, [blank leaf], 499. large folding coloured lithographed map. A very nice set in modern half hard-grained morocco. First Edition. A valuable collection of hitherto unpublished journals, accounts, and letters relating to the history of the North West Company and the state of the fur trade in the Canadian and American northwest and the Great Lakes, Upper Missouri and Rocky Mountain regions, including: Roderick McKenzie's Reminiscences, being chiefly a synopsis of letters from Sir Alexander Mackenzie; W.F.Wentzel's letters to R.McKenzie; John McDonnell's account of Red River (c. 1797); François Antoine Larocque's Missouri journal (1804-05); Simon Fraser's journal of a voyage from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific coast (1808); Samuel Wilcox's Narrative of circumstances attending the death of the late Benjamin Frobisher, Esq., a partner in the North-West Company (1819), James McKenzie's Some account of the King's Posts, the Labrador coast and, Journal of a canoe trip through those countries, in 1808, John Johnston's description of the country around Lakes Superior and Huron (1809), Peter Grant on the Sauteax Indians (1804); a list of 'bourgeois, commis, engagés et voyageurs' of the North West Company, &c. The large Map of the North West Territories was drawn by Gustave Rinfret. The collection was originally conceived and begun by Roderick McKenzie, who retired from service with the North West Company in 1806, but it was considerably expanded by his son-in-law Masson, who has also provided an introduction, annotations, and short biographies, all of which greatly enhance the value of the work.
