THE GUIDE TO GOLD PANNING IN BRITISH COLUMBIA. N. L. Barlee.

THE GUIDE TO GOLD PANNING IN BRITISH COLUMBIA

Summerland BC: Canada West Magazine, 1970. First Edition. Soft cover. Fine. Item #2105010

1st printing. 4to pictorial wraps. 192pp. Most attractively illustrated with vintage photos and the excellent drawings and hand-drawn maps of the author. Barlee was publisher and author of the much sought Canada West Magazine, a schoolteacher, and later MP of his riding in BC. He produced a TV series on BC ghost towns and mining camps for CBC. I believe Barlee traveled to all the places he wrote about and researched them professionally. Your bookseller corresponded with Barlee around this time. Fine copy. I have always admired Barlee's choice of paper used in printing, and his choice of stock for his attractive covers.

Price: $31.50
