        British Columbia - Sixty Years of Progress: A History *SIGNED, NUMBERED AND UNREAD, FULL LEATHER-BOUND COPY*

      British Columbia: British Columbia Historical Association. Hardcover. Number 216 of only 350 signed copies of this full leather-bound edition. Signed by co-author R.E. Gosnell. "Few publications, if any, of similar size and excellence have been produced in Canada..." - From Editor's Foreward. Part One is made up of 210 pages and eighteen chapters which constitute "... a survey of events from the earliest times down to the Union of the Crown Colony of British Columbia with the Dominion of Canada." Part Two is "... a history, mainly political and economic, of the Province since Confederation up to the present time." Part One is preceded by dozens of tissue-protected black and white portraits of individuals influential in the early history of the province, complete with their brief biographies upon the tissue. Part One is likewise followed by dozens of tissue-protected portraits of "Leading men in judicial and other capacities." Part Two is comprised of eighteen chapters over 226 pages, plus 5 pages of addenda. This part is again followed by dozens of tissue protected portraits of "Some of the men conspicuous as present day factors in development." Top edge gilt.

Handsome suede leather exterior appears virtually as fresh as the day it was applied over 90 years ago.

The vintage and exceedingly fine condition of this copy easily rank it as one of the most impressive volumes we have ever offered. . Fine. 1913. Limited Edition.

        North American Indians Being Letters And Notes On Their Manners, Customs, And Conditions, Written During Eight Years' Travel Amongst The Wildest Tribes Of Indians In North America, 1832-1839

      Philadelphia: Leary, Stuart and Company, 1913. A major anthropological study by "one of the most admirable observers of manners who ever lived among the aborigines of America." (Alexander von Humboldt) The American artist visited a total of forty-eight native American tribes on his extensive tour of the great American West, and executed some six hundred paintings, including portraits of aboriginals in full native dress, views of their villages and wigwams, and portrayals of their games, dances, religious ceremonies, buffalo hunting and other amusements. The present narrative vividly relates his adventures, and faithfully records the manners and customs of the Blackfoot, Cree, Ojibway, Sioux, Pawnee, Osage, Chinook, Cherokee and other tribes; of special interest is the section on the Mandans of the Upper Missouri, who were annihilated by smallpox in 1837. The numerous illustrations were copied and reduced for the engraver by Catlin himself, from his original paintings. The first edition was published in 1841 with engraved plates, and the first with plates printed in colour in 1876. cfHowes C-241. cfField 260. cfSabin 11536-37. cfStreeter III 1805. cfWagner-Camp 84. 2 Volumes. large 8vo. pp. ix, [1 leaf], 298; ix, [1 leaf], 303, [1]. with half-titles. 3 chromolithographed maps (1 folding) & 176 (of 177) chromolithographed plates. lacking plate 78 (never bound in).
