Report of Exploration & Investigation Along Canada's Arctic Coast Line from the Delta of the Mackenzie River to Hudson Bay 1925-1926

A report about the Northwest Territories and the Yukon prepared by Major L.T. Burwash (L.T. standing for Lachlin Taylor, variously spelled Lachan and Lachlan). There are 142 typed pages plus appendices, photos, and maps. The photographs depict the local people and their practices, as well as some of Burwash, and the landscape. There is also a snapshot, a note about the book from a bookseller, a map of his travels, a pamphlet for the Northwest Territories 1933, and an obituary from the New York Times, tucked into the front. The book, text, and photographs, are all in very good condition.

Burwash, Lachlin Taylor

The Far North

An album of photographs by Charles Wesley Mathers depicting life in the Northwest Territories, including the people, the settlements, their boats, tools, etc. The photographs were taken during Mathers's trip to Northern Alberta and the Northwest Territories in 1901 and 1902. The album was published by the Albertype Company in 1902.

The Vanishing Race, The Long Headed Indian of the West Coast of BC

An album of photographs believed to be in British Columbia, including landscape images as well as a number of portraits of Aboriginal peoples, many hand-coloured. Only the photos on the right-hand pages are signed by Ben William Leeson (as B.W. Leeson). It is possible that an unknown individual added their snapshots on the facing pages to a book of Lesson images.
