316 pp + Index, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). No. 186 of the first edition of 500 copies. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper. "(T)he boundaries of the guide are reasonably flexible. If a book contains significant Western or Western Arctic material, it will be included. The geographic reach embraces all the past and present territory of Western and Arctic Canada, all that was once Rupert's Land as well as those areas where histories have intermingled. For example, the great gold rushes of Alaska and the Klondike are strongly linked, and that's reflected in the accounts dealing with those events. I don't think I've missed many of the West's important books, but allow me the occasional oversight. The listings of the books have been made as clear and simple as possible, with a minimum of bibliographic description; enough ony to provide a sense of the size, shape and format of the book and a rough guide to the contents. The physical description is as extensive as needs be to identify the first or most desired edition or, in a lot of cases, the best edited; occasionally all three." From the Introduction.
