THE OVERLANDERS OF '62 (Signed Association)

Victoria: B. C. Government, 1931. Hardcover. Very Good. Item #2206073

1st printing. Cloth. 174pp. Illustrated. Presentation by the editor on the ffep "To Patrick Philip, Esq. / With Compliments, / John Hosie / Jan 14, 1932". Hosie was Provincial Librarian and Archivist. This book was issued after the death of the author. The Canadian Encyclopedia says, "The Overlanders of 1862 were a group of some 150 settlers who travelled from Fort Garry (now Winnipeg, Manitoba) to the interior of British Columbia, following the Cariboo Gold Rush. They were led by Thomas McMicking of Stamford Township, Welland County, Canada West [Ontario]." All copies of this book that I have seen have had their hinges reinforced by the bookbinder with binding tape. Text block is untrimmed as issued. Not unattractive and professionally done, but this is original and not a repair job. Moderately soiled. Vg. Signed copies scarce.

Price: $175.00
