Volume II only. Pagination runs 329 - 781 pp, large 8vo (9 5/8" H). Orange/red cloth with gilt lettering/crest on spine, top edge gilt. No. 0531 of an edition of twelve hundred and fifty. "This second volume of the Journal of the North West Company fur trader Alexander Henry the Younger portrays Henry against the larger panorama of the North American fur trade. We find him in the first entry, that for 8 August 1808, taking his leave from the Pembina post in the Red River Valley. He is destined for the Saskatchewan country and a different departmental assignment from that he previously had. We trace his route upstream along the waterways of the Saskatchewan River system, and we follow him into the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in what is now southwestern Alberta. In the course of these trading activities that cover the years 1808 through 1813, Henry meets the surveyor and discoverer David Thompson, and on occasion the latter features heavily in the narrative. During these years on the prairies and plains of western North America Henry writes extensive commentary on various native peoples. The last phase of the Journal, comprising the years 1813 and 1814, brings Henry into the watershed of the Columbia River and the Pacific Coast.. The Nor'Westers were in a very insecure position owing to the threat of United States naval intervention during the War of 1812 and to the rivalry of John Jacob Astor's Pacific Fur Company. The tension of the narrative builds with these enlarge-ments to Henry's activities, and it ends in his accidental death." From the Editor's Note. Minor rub on fore-edge of text block otherwise clean and bright.
