Newcombe (1851-1924), physician, natural historian and artifact collector was an important figure in the rush to collect Northwest Coast art and objects, most of which were collected for foreign institutions although he collected for the Provincial Museum later in in his career and ulitmately his enormous personal collection was sold to the British Columbia Government and is now housed in the RBCM and the Provincial Archives. The memoir was written to vindicate the contention of Vancouver that his ships were the first to complete the navigation of the inner channels which separate Vancouver Island from the mainland. With 8 guarded maps including one fold-out and errata sheet. This is a non-circulating ex-library copy with a stamp on the title page, library accession numbers on the first page of the covering letter and stamp and catalogue numbers on the last page. Rebound in stiff blue card library boards without the original covers (which were identical to the title page). Strathern 399. 69 pp. N° de réf. du libraire 27270
