Other works by FREDERICK V. HOLMAN

Publication: The Arthur H Clark Company, 1907, Cleveland

First edition. 8vo. Green cloth, gold stamping on spine, 301 [3] pp., teg., other edges untrimmed, frontis. [portrait], preface, illustrated, portraits, erratum sheet, index. A history of Dr. John McLoughlin and of his career in the early history of Oregon. The immigrations of 1843, 1845, and 1846, to the country then known as the "Oregon Country" which was determined by a treaty in 1846 between the United States and England. "This early Clark Company publication was one of the first (after AUDUBON'S WESTERN JOURNAL) to deal exclusively with the history of the Far West. Little need be said regarding the importance of McLoughlin. Any account of the Pacific Northwest from 1824 into the 1850s, whether a primary or secondary source, makes mention of him and his unparalled influence on all events in that region."--Clark/Brunet 123. "Because of his years and influence at Fort Vancouver, and the important role he played in the development of the Northwest, Dr. McLoughlin deserves this place in history. This is a well-written biography of this influential man."--Washington 89-31. A couple of very small spots on the front cover, else a near fine, bright copy of this important biography of the Pacific Northwest.
