Portland, Oregon: Reed College, Champoeg Press, MCMLIX (1959). First Edition. 
Royal octavo, green cloth (hardcover), uncut, unopened, xxiv, 148 pp + Appendix, Index. Near-Fine. From Introduction: The reports of Herbert Beaver, Chaplain at Fort Vancouver, to the Governor and Committee of the Hudson's Bay Company in London, and the letters of the Chaplain to Mr. Benjamin Harrison, Deputy-Governor of the Company, shed a revealing though biased light on conditions at this remote post during a period for which all too little detailed information is available.
