FUR TRADE IN CANADA. Great Britain. Parliament.
An Act to make further Provision for the Regulation of the Trade with the Indians, and for the Administration of Justice in the North western Territories of America.
London: George Edward Eyre and William Spottiswoode, 1859. Folio (12.25 inches). 22 & 23 Victoria, Chapter 26. Caption title, pages 157-159. Engraved Royal coat of arms. Neatly extracted from a bound volume and expertly mended. The Hudson Bay Company license to trade was due to expire in 1859, but its access to Ruperts Land continued under the authority of its 1670 charter. At this time, the British parliament decided to revisit the question of jurisdiction. This Act proposed that Justices of the Peace in the Indian Territories be authorized to try offenders, and punish by fine or imprisonment. It also proposed that the Crown reserve the right to make regulations for the conduct of trade with the Indians (to diminish or prevent the sale of spirits) and for the erection of Indian Colonies. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
Bookseller: Bob Gaba [Victoria, BC, Canada]
