LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

London: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, and Searle. 1872. With illustrations and a route map. 1st ed. xii, 388pp, folding frontis map, 6 plates (all but one with the tissue guards), 32pp publisher's catalogue. Original brown cloth, decorated in gilt, black and blind, extremities rubbed, the corners a little more so. A little pale spotting early and late, the uncut edges slightly soiled, a little underlining and the occasional marginal comment, all in pencil, otherwise clean. The folding map ('British America from Lake Superior to the Rocky Mountains') has a few spots, a couple of marginal annotations (in pencil), one fold is a little creased, and the lower edge is not trimmed straight on the outer two folds (printer's error, but well away from the map image). Slight splits in the endpaper gutters but binding solid. A good to very good copy. ***Butler was sent by the British authorities in Canada on a mission to the Saskatchewan River (from Fort Garry in Manitoba to the foor of the Rockies) to investigate and make recommendations pertaining to the state of the frontier (said to be lawless), the fur trade, and the native tribes - their numbers, customs etc, and particularly their health (small-pox being reportedly prevalent). His offical report is included as an appendix - the main text being a fuller account of his travels. .
