[Chinook Language]:

A DICTIONARY OF THE CHINOOK JARGON, OR INDIAN TRADE LANGUAGE OF THE NORTHPACIFIC COAST.

      Victoria: T. N. Hibben & Company, [ca. 1871]. 26pp. Original printed wrappers. Minor soiling to covers, else very good or better. The earliest citation for the Chinook Jargon is George Gibbs' 1863 edition for the Smithsonian Institution, but even there the preface cites an earlier version furnished by a B. R. Mitchell of the U.S. Navy, also for the Smithsonian. The present edition is most likely a recent reprint of the first Hibben edition around 1871. As trading developed throughout the Pacific Northwest, this little volume was in high demand. It was reprinted over fifty times, this being one of the earlier editions. PILLING, CHINOOKAN, pp.21-23, 32-33.
