London, 1872. x,,388pp. plus six plates and a folding map. Contemporary three-quarter maroon morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Light shelf wear. One plate detached, but present. Very good. First edition. Pages 355-86 contain Butler's report of his journey from Fort Garry to Rocky Mountain House and back during the winter of 1870-71. This report "is one of great interest both for the gruelling winter journey it describes and for the frank and fearful allegations imputed to the Fort Benton traders...Travelling through a country not yet touched by civilized law, and in an official capacity under orders of Gov. Archibald, Butler made observations and notes of the most interesting character, and his report of outrages, lawlessness, and border treachery is little short of appalling..." - Eberstadt. PEEL 638.
