1914 FIRST EDITION

CANADIAN ROCKIES RARE BOOK

VERY UNCOMMON 1914 FIRST PRINTING


This is the first printing of the first edition of GLACIERS OF THE ROCKIES AND SELKIRKS by A. P. Coleman. This book was published in Canada [presumably in Ottawa, but this is not stated in the book] by Honourable W. J. Roche Minister Of The Interior in 1914. The book measures 229mm tall x 152mm and has 29 pages, 15 b/w photos. Discussion of glacier geology and then some of the pioneer findings in the Canadian rockies, descriptions of some of the glaciers accessible to tourists, some of the authorís experiences. Rare book. This first edition is not dated anywhere in the book, but the second edition of 1921 notes that this first edition was published in 1914. Some sources incorrectly indicate that the first edition was 1912 or 1911. Those dates are not correct. The first edition is 1914. This is the first edition being offered here.
