About This Item

Tissue-protected frontis. 312 pages plus ads at back. There is a large coloured fold-out map that is only GOOD with small tear IN THE BLANK MARGIN Large number of illustrations; every one checked and present in near-fine condition. Nine appendices. A terrific book. Front blue board with gilt illustration. Gilt titling etc on spine.. Corners bumped. No writing. Black front end paper stretches across inside board and page, as it should, and is cracked down centre but not open. That sound worse than it is. All it means is that the white shows along the crack.

Account of a journey through the Chilkoot Pass to Klondike and down the Yukon River to St. Michael, and two-month residence among the Tchuktchis
