The Remarkable History Of The Hudson's Bay Company

£16.99

Product description

This book is facsimile reprint of the original book published in 1900.

[From the 1900 Preface] For two full centuries the Hudson's Bay company, under its original Charter, undertook financial enterprises of the greatest magnitude, promoted exploration and discovery, governed a vast domain in the northern part of the American Continent, and preserved to the British Empire the wide territory handed over to Canada in 1870. For nearly a generation since that time the veteran Company has carried on successful trade in competition with many rivals, and has shown the vigour of youth. The present History includes not only the record of the remarkable exploits of this well-known Company, but also the accounts of the daring French soldiers and explorers who disputed the claim of the Company in the seventeenth century, and in the eighteenth century actually surpassed the English adventurers in penetrating the vast interior of Rupert's Land.

There is some sunning to the spine of the book. Otherwise, the book is in excellent condition throughout.
