London, 1817. ,279pp. plus folding map and nine engravings (two in text and the remainder on four plates, all bound in front). 20th-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Faint stamp and ink notations on titlepage, minor foxing. Good. Untrimmed. An interesting and important work, much scarcer than the same author's work on Newfoundland which appeared the following year. Chappell made his voyage to Hudson Bay in 1814 as escort to vessels of the Hudson' Bay Company. He describes the forts and posts maintained on the Bay by the Company, whose policies he scorned. He also gives detailed accounts of Indians found around the Bay, especially the Eskimo and Cree, and includes some very interesting illustrations of Indian life. LANDE 1117. TPL 976. SABIN 12005.
