Publications of the Hudsons Bay Record Society, Complete Set (33 Volumes)

London & Winnipeg: Hudson's Bay Record Society, 1938-1981.

Hardcover. Very good. Thirty three volumes, Volumes I-XXII bound in blue cloth with gilt titles, XXIII-XXXIII in black cloth with gilt titles (as issued). The blue cloth volumes were issued without dust jackets. Volumes XXIV-XXXIII have their original jackets; Volume XXII is lacking the jacket. Some variation in the color of the blue cloth, some volumes with a former owner's signatures or bookplate, some with minor cover wear (scuffing or a lightly bumped corner), but overall a very clean, very good set. This set of publications is a mine of valuable information, both for the first-hand reports and descriptions, often written on the spot,and the editorial comments and annotations. From its founding in 1670, the Hudson's Bay Company always kept extensive records, and thus accumulated an unique and magnificent collection of documents relating to the fur trade, and indeed to the history of Canada and the northern United States generally. .Includes: 1.
