Swan, James.
The Northwest Coast. With an Introduction By W.A. Katz.
A Very Good plus tight copy in green cloth boards with light soiling to front board without dust jacket as issued. This copy is one of 1006 published copies but is not signed or numbered by the publisher Glen Adams. In 1852, James Swan settled for the first time in Washington, on the shore of Willapa Bay, then known as Shoalwater Bay. Swan lived on Shoalwater Bay until 1855. In 1857 he described the Bay and his experiences there in The Northwest Coast, Or, Three Years' Residence in Washington Territory, one of the earliest books about life in Washington. Swan learned the Chinook Jargon, a trade language that Northwest Coast Indians used to communicate between tribes and with non-Indians, as well as the Chehalis language the local Indians spoke among themselves. He spent long winter evenings conversing with the Indians and learning their history, legends, and way of life. The Northwest Coast includes detailed descriptions of Indian homes, crafts, hunting and fishing tools and techniques, religious ceremonies, songs, games, vocabularies of the Jargon and Chehalis languages, along with illustrations by Swan, who was an accomplished artist. The book also describes Swan's travels, often with Indian friends, around the Bay and its tributary rivers, to Chinook and Astoria on the Columbia River, and up the Pacific coast to Grays Harbor and the Quinault River.

[Alaskana] Jordan, David Starr.
The Fur Seals and Fur-Seal Islands (Pribilof Islands) of the North Pacific Ocean. Two Volumes.
Both volumes are in Very Good plus condition bound in blue cloth. Northern fur seals have been a staple food of native northeast Asian and Alaskan Inuit peoples for thousands of years. The arrival of Europeans to Kamchatka and Alaska in the 17th and 18th centuries, first from Russia and later from North America, was followed by a highly extractive commercial fur trade. The commercial fur trade was accelerated in 1786, when Gavriil Pribylov discovered St. George Island, a key rookery of the seals. An estimated 2.5 million seals were killed from 1786 to 1867. This trade led to a decline in fur seal numbers. Restrictions were first placed on fur seal harvest on the Pribilof Islands by the Russians in 1834. Shortly after the United States purchased Alaska from Russia in 1867, the U.S. Treasury was authorized to lease sealing privileges on the Pribilofs, which were granted somewhat liberally to the Alaska Commercial Company. From 1870 to 1909, pelagic sealing proceeded to take a significant toll on the fur seal population, such that the Pribilof population, historically numbering on the order of millions of individuals, reached a low of 216,000 animals in 1912. Part One concerns: The History, Condition, and Needs of the Herd of Fur Seals Resorting to the Pribilof Islands; Part Two addresses: Observations on the Fur Seals of the Pribilof Islands 1872-1897 as extracted from the log of St. Paul Island, and as recorded in the daily journal of the commission of 1896 and 1897. Both volumes 606 pages. Numerous photographs and illustrations. Fully indexed.

[Nautical History] Wing, Robert C. with Gordon Newell.
Peter Puget. Lieutenant on the Vancouver Expedition, fighting British naval officer, the man for whom Puget Sound was named.
A Fine copy in a Near Fine price clipped dust jacket with some crinkling to the laminate in the rear panel. The book is an essential reference for readers interested in seafaring novels about the Royal Navy during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. It is the biography of Rear Admiral Peter Puget, covering his entire naval career from the time he was a midshipman (starting at the age of 12 in 1778) serving in the West Indies during the American Revolution, to his final assignment as Naval Commissioner in India, with details of his final days in England, and some details on his children. A large segment of the book deals with Puget's service as second lieutenant aboard His Majesty's sloop Discovery under the command of George Vancouver during that ship's voyage to the northwest coast of North America (1791-1795). It provides valuable insight into that voyage and the personality of Captain George Vancouver (Vancouver had served with Captain James Cook on both his second and third voyages). Lieutenant Puget was promoted to lieutenant at the age of 25 . The voyage of the Discovery started out soon after the mutiny aboard the H.M.S. Bounty, with the result that a consort, the armed tender Chatham under the command of Lieutenant William Robert Broughton, was sent to accompany the Discovery. George Vancouver and William Bligh had served together on Captain Cook's third voyage, Bligh being the sailing master. There is no doubt that the mutiny on the Bounty influenced Vancouver's attitudes towards his officers and men.

Edward S. Curtis in the Land of the War Canoes. A Pioneer Cinematographer in the Pacific Northwest.
A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket. In 1914, famed photographer of the Western Indians Edward Curtis made the first full-length motion picture of an aboriginal North American society. The film was a financial disaster and quickly fell into obscurity until 1940 when a damaged copy surfaced. The authors of this book restored the film in 1974. This book is a tribute to Curtis' genius. The authors spent nearly ten years restoring his film, and as they worked, they came to know well and respect the man behind the camera. Using much hitherto unpublished material - oral histories fromIndians who had worked with Curtis, and newly discovered records, correspondence, and photographs - they present Curtis as photographer, entrepreneur, ethnologist, and sometime family man. Their careful recording of the procedures they used ot restore the film is a valuable historical document in itself. It will be of interest to anthropologists, filmmakers and film historians, and all who admire Curtis' Indian photographs.

[Northwest History] Meeker, Ezra.
Pioneer Reminiscences of Puget Sound: The Tragedy of Leschi.
A Near Fine copy in blue cloth binding with light wear to the extremities. This copy is signed by Ezra Meeker on the dedication page. Ezra Meeker (1830-1928) was a Washington pioneer, successful hops farmer, merchant, and an influential advocate for preserving the Oregon Trail. With his wife Eliza Jane Sumner Meeker (1834-1909) he founded the town of Puyallup on the land surrounding their small cabin. Meeker represented Washington Territory and later the state of Washington in several major expositions in America and abroad. In 1903 Meeker began collecting notes for what would become his Pioneer Reminiscences of Puget Sound: The Tragedy of Leschi. The book's publication in 1905 sparked further public brawling with his nemisis Edmond Meany on the pages of local newspapers. Meany objected to Meeker's stance that Indian Agent and Territorial Governor Isaac Stevens (1818-1862) mistreated the Indians and grossly mishandled treaty negotiations. In Meeker's view, heavy drinking contributed to what he saw as Stevens's ineptitude.

Monte Cristo.
A Fine copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with light edge wear to the head of the spine. This copy is inscribed by the author. The Monte Cristo area, pocketed in spectacularly beautiful mountains in the Pacific Northwest, has long intrigued visitors with its colorful history, rooted in the search for deposits of gold and silver as rich as the Count of Monte Cristo. Here is the story of the region, from discovery to disillusionment and, ultimately, to the dust of a ghost town. The several decades of Monte Cristo's glory led to the construction of the Everett & Monte Cristo Railway (a marvelous engineering mistake) and the founding of the city of Everett as a processing and shipping point for the projected mining riches all events manipulated by Eastern corporate titans including John D. Rockefeller and the Guggenheims. Through boom and bust the struggling railroaders, miners, merchants, and their families dreamed, worked, failed, and sometimes died in Monte Cristo's unforgiving winters. What was the true extent of Monte Cristo's fabled riches? How could the skilled geologists of the day have been so wrong?

[Northwest Native Americans] Eells, Myron.
The Indians of Puget Sound: The Notebooks of Myron eells. Edited with an Introduction by George Pierre Castile.
A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine dust jacket with some fading to the spine and extemities. Myron Eells spent more than 30 years (18741907) as a missionary on the Skokomish Reservation in western Washington State, where he recorded details of Indian life. He served during a period of transition, when both federal and religious authorities sought to "civilize" the Indians as rapidly and thoroughly as possible, and Eells observed the cultural changes firsthand. Though he published some articles during his life, the manuscript of his study was neglected; it is published here for the first time. Anthropology professor Castile has edited the work to present an orderly narrative. Eells worked mainly with the Twana and Klallon tribes of the Coast Salish; he had a particular interest in their material culture, but he also describes potlatches, burial customs and religion (including the rise of the Shaker Church). In his afterword, anthropologist Elmendorf appraises Eells's work as an ethnographer. Fully illustrated.

[Northwest Utopian History] LeWarne, Charles Pierce.
Utopias on Puget Sound 1885-1915.
A Fine crisp copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Washington State's colorful reputation for radical movements was established in the 1920s and 1930s by free speech fights, strikes, strong labor organizations, and woman suffrage reforms. Charles LeWarne finds the roots of this radicalism in the communitarian experiments of the late nineteenth century. Through analyses of several of these experiments, LeWarne demonstrates that the influence of a coterie of liberals and radicals centered on Puget Sound in such communities as Home, Burley, Freeland, Equality, and Port Angeles was felt in the state long after the "utopias" they came to colonize had ceased to exist. Anyone interested in current social movements and lifestyles will find many enlightening parallels with recent communal attempts, particularly the rejection of traditional values and the belief in a perfectible world. Whatever the differences within individual colonies, the communitarian ideal has certain general characteristics that find their way into each of these attempts to form a perfect society.

A Tour of Duty in the Pacific Northwest aboard the H.M.S Sparrowhawk, 1865-1868. Edited and annotated by Dwight L. Smith.
A Very Goo plus copy with a small water stain to the heel of the binding in a Fine dust jacket. Porcher's journal reveals a man who strived to do his duty by the lights of the British Empire. That duty took Porcher to Esquimalt, Royal Navy headquarters for the Pacific, by way of a seven-month transit from England around South America, to Hawaii, and finally to British Columbia. Fortunately, the dutiful navy officer was also an enthusiastic tourist; we have not only his words to recount what he saw, but also a remarkable array of sensitive and skillfully rendered watercolors. His paintings captured people and places, totems and tombs, scenes and ships.
