About This Item

Washington DC, 1903. First Edition. First printing. Elephant folio (46cm). Original black cloth, titled in gilt on front; plain endpapers; [4]pp; 22 color maps, numbered 26-47. Straight, sound, and unfaded, cloth rubbed and scuffed with biopredation to edges, but internally largely clean with occasional smudges: around Very Good.

Government reproductions of maps used in 1903 border disputes, effectively forming a cartographic history of the Alaskan territory. When the U.S. purchased Alaska from Russia in 1821, it inherited a dispute over the territory's border with British Columbia. The Klondike Gold Rush of 1897-98 exacerbated tensions until the 1903 Hay-Herbert Treaty, under which the nations entered arbitration to resolve the dispute. The arbitration's conclusion favored the U.S., sparking Canadian frustration that Britain had not better defended its interests.

The maps in this volume are reproductions of British and Canadian maps from 1859-1898, showing the British/Canadian claim to the land. Several of the facsimiles reproduce annotations by members of the arbitration tribunal.
