map and b&w illustrations. Complete two volume hard cover set in publisher's dust jackets. 8vo, pp. xl, 1029. A history of the pioneer trading posts and early fur companies of the Missouri Valley and the Rocky Mountains and of the overland Commerce with Santa Fe. Very light shlf wear to the books, with faint off-setting to the endpapers from the dust jacket flaps; else in very good condition.

This is the best overview I've found on the Fur Trade in the American West. Mr. Chittenden does an excellent job of covering this subject in depth. His detailed chapter sub heads are a great reference tool as well. I highly recommend this book.
