Red River.

HARGRAVE, Joseph James [d. 1894].

Montreal: Printed For The Author By John Lovell, 1871. First Edition. Hargrave entered the service of the Hudson’s Bay Company in 1841 and was sent to the Red River where he acted as secretary to his uncle, William MacTavish, governor of Assiniboia. From 1869 to 1884 he was engaged in the fur trade at Red River, and from 1884 to his retirement in 1889, he was stationed at Fort Edmonton. This is a valuable history of the Red River Settlement, based on Hargrave’s personal experiences and on papers belonging to his father, who was also a Company employee. The work gives a good account of events leading up to the Red River Rebellion, and includes a relation of the author’s difficult trip from England to the western Canadian settlements via Chicago and St. Paul. Peel 505. Lande 1215. 8vo. pp. xvi, [17]-506. original cloth (scuffed, extremities frayed, light foxing to outer leaves, marginal stain to dedication leaf)
