The Canada Council FOREWORD
In 1965 the Centennial Committee of the University of Victoria
agreed to sponsor the preparation and publication of a bibliography of British Columbia. To advise on the project, a committee
was formed composed of Mr. Dean Halliwell (Chairman), Mr.
W.E. Ireland, Dr. Samuel Rothstein, Mr. R.D. Hilton Smith,
Dr. R.H. Roy and the bibliographer, Mrs. Barbara Lowther.
The production of the work was placed under the supervision of
the Social Sciences Research Centre of the University of Victoria
and early in 1968 A Bibliography of British Columbia: Laying
the Foundations, i84Q-i8gg came off the press.
The Advisory Comrnittee then decided that the period before
1849 should be dealt with. Mrs. Lowther had returned to her
library work, but the Committee was very fortunate to engage
Mrs. Gloria Strathern to work on the period from 1774 to 1848.
As she explains in her introduction, the different time element
covered in this present work has necessitated a somewhat different approach in the style and format of the bibliographic entries,
but in both cases the focus has been on presenting the material in
such a way that it would be most useful to the scholar, the academic, the professional librarian and the layman.
Mrs. Strathern was presented with a formidable task. Her skill
and energy were balanced with a delightful sense of humour.
She has brought to fruition a work which, we believe, will be a
testament of her competence and ability.
The Social Sciences Research Centre wishes to express its
thanks to the Canada Council and the B.C. Centennial Cultural
Fund for the financial assistance contributed over the past two
and a half years towards the completion of this volume.
Reginald H. Roy,
Professor of History and Chairman (1065-1970)
Social Sciences Research Centre.
This publication is the second in a series of bibliographic studies
to be published by the University of Victoria. It is a companion
volume to Barbara J. Lowther's Laying the foundations, a bibliography of British Columbia covering the period 1849 to 1899,
which was published in 1967.
The present study lists published works relating to the period
1774 to 1848, from the first recorded arrival of Spanish explorers
in British Columbian waters to the British Government's decision
to colonize Vancouver Island. In accordance with the policy
established by the Advisory Committee for the Lowther volume,
works concerned with the period and published up to the year
1968, general histories of the province, and books containing
relevant chapters or sections have been included. Thus, while the
present bibliography is, like the Lowther bibliography, complete
in itself, certain items common to both of the periods covered
will be found listed in each of the two volumes.
It proved difficult to fix the exact geographical limits of the
present bibliography, for during the period covered, the area
which is now the Province of British Columbia was only a part of
the huge and largely unknown Oregon Territory. While emphasis has naturally been placed on publications relating to the area
within the present provincial boundaries, relevant material on
the fur trade, such as works dealing with Fort Astoria and Fort
Vancouver, has been included, and also material on the Oregon
boundary settlement.
Within these limits, all published monographic works that
could be identified have been listed, together with information on
later editions and translations. Excluded are general collections
of voyages, general histories of exploration, and collected editions,
abridgements and translations of Cook's third voyage, other than
official and eye-witness accounts. Washington living's works have
their own detailed bibliography compiled by S.T. Williams and
IX M.A. Edge and their records of later editions and translations of
Astoria have not been duplicated here.
Also excluded are purely cartographic works, newspapers, unpublished manuscripts and archival material, unpublished theses
and photo-reproductions. Facsimile reprints have been listed as
far as possible: the difficulty here has been to deterrnine which
of the items listed in such reference works as the Guide to reprints
have actually been reprinted, and which are merely projected.
Coverage of periodical literature has been restricted. The compilation of a check-list of periodical articles including church
history and natural history would be an enormous task quite
beyond the resources of the Social Sciences Research Centre. The
major regional historical journals have been included, together
with the publications of the Association de la Propagation de la
Foi. The purist may question the inclusion of a handful of offprints from periodicals. These were found catalogued as separates
in special libraries and have been retained for their usefulness in
cases where monographic works on the same subject are scarce
or non-existent.
The bibliography is intended primarily as a reference guide
for research workers and for librarians. Items have been listed
with all details necessary for identification from variant references, while notes indicate scope and level. Each item is supplied
with references to standard bibliographies, including such special
studies as supply exact transcriptions of title-pages, detailed collation and full description of illustrations and maps. More extensive references have been supplied for scarcer and older material,
but for practical reasons of space, in no case have all possible
references been supplied. Wherever possible, at least one copy of
each item has been examined and the location of that copy
noted. Where it has proved impossible to examine a copy, every
attempt has been made to find the location of one, which has
then been noted as "not seen" and described from information
supplied by the holder and by other bibliographies and library
Items are entered under the author where known, otherwise
under title. Russian items have been transliterated according to the system recommended in the American Library Association's
AYL.A. cataloguing rules for author and title entries, 2d ed.
Chicago, 1949. The author's name is given in full in the main
entry, with dates of birth and death where these could be ascertained, while in the body of the entry the name is given as it
appears on the title-page. Square brackets in the heading are
used only for authors of anonymous or pseudonymous works.
Titles of honour and academic titles following the author's name
on the title-page have been omitted unless they illustrate his
relationship to the subject.
Biographical notes have been kept to a minimum: there has
been no attempt to duplicate standard biographical dictionaries
such as W.S. Wallace's The Macmillan dictionary of Canadian
biography. Where various authorities disagree as to an author's
dates, we have followed the most recent and authoritative source,
e.g. for Sir George Simpson.
Titles of first editions are given in full to facilitate identification from inverted and abbreviated references. Spelling and
punctuation have followed the original as closely as possible, with
spelling errors followed by [!]; spellings acceptable at the time
of publication which differ from modern usage are not regarded
as errors. Publishers' imprints are given in full, omitting street
addresses. Information which does not actually appear on the
title-page is enclosed in square brackets. Where dates of publication are supplied from sources outside the book these sources are
recorded in the notes.
Arrangement of items is alphabetical, by author when known,
otherwise by title. Later editions, translations, supplements and
appendices are arranged in the following order: (1) subsequent
editions in the original language published in the same country
arranged chronologically, (2) subsequent editions in the original
language published in other countries, arranged alphabetically
by country and chronologically within that order, (3) translations arranged alphabetically by language and chronologically
within that order, and (4) appendices or supplements in chronological order. In practice, this is much less complicated than it
sounds, as an examination of a representative entry, William
XI Coxe's Account of the Russian discoveries (no. 130), will
Main entries are designated by arabic numerals in raririing
order, later editions and translations by lower case roman numerals, supplementary works alphabetically. Facsimile reprint editions follow immediately after their originals, and bear the same
roman numeral, subdivided by lower case alphabetical symbols.
Again in practice, this makes for a simplified and unified arrangement. It also facilitates reference from the indexes to individual editions.
Exceptions to the general arrangement have been made under
certain conditions. Where the bibliographical relationship between two editions in the same language but published in different countries can be clarified by placing them in the same
chronological sequence, this has been done, e.g. Robert Green-
how's History of Oregon and California (no.234). In short,
common sense has been used to modify the basic arrangement
wherever appropriate.
Government publications often present difficulties to the user.
They are recorded variously in reference works and their correct
identification can be a problem. In this bibliography, they are
listed under the agency of government from which they emanate,
as prescribed in the A.L.A. cataloguing rules for author and title
entries, 2d. ed, Chicago, 1949. Treaties and conventions are
listed according to the same rules under the country first named
in the title, with a form subheading, sub-divided by the inclusive
dates of the regnal years or presidential term of office, e.g. U.S.
Treaties, etc., 1845-1849 (Polk).
British Parliamentary Papers are listed with titles given in full,
with notes on variant titles and series statements, together with
references to the House of Commons bound set which is the most
complete extant collection. U.S. Congressional Papers are usually
issued with caption title, accompanied by additional headings,
series statements and other notes. Titles of these are listed in
sufficient detail and additional headings are recorded in the
In selecting U.S. Congressional Papers for inclusion, the policy
XII has been to list all relevant significant individual items. Minor
papers concerned with the machinery of government but not in
themselves containing reports and decisions are excluded. For
reasons of space it was decided to exclude reference to the U.S.
Serial Set when citing U.S. government publications, since these
references are not critical in identifying individual items. Papers
relating to the claims of American citizens for recompense for
services to the state are not included unless they contain pertinent
information not published elsewhere. Serial publications, such as
the Congressional Debates, including off-prints of the speeches
of individual members and the Annals of Congress are not listed.
Similarly, for Great Britain, serial publications such as the Debates and Journals of Parliament are not included.
Government publications relating to the settlements of the
Northwest water boundary, the Alaska boundary, and the claims
of the Puget Sound Agricultural Company, all of which contain
documents relating to the period 1774 to 1848, will be found
listed in the Lowther bibliography, since they belong historically
to the period 1848 to 1899. They are not duplicated in the
present volume.
A period of just over two years was budgeted by the Advisory
Committee for the compilation of the present bibliography. Work
began in April, 1968, with a search of the bibliographies of standard histories of British Columbia. From these was assembled a
basic working file which was then supplemented by references
obtained from a search of monographic bibliographies and the
published catalogues of major collections of Western Canadiana
and Americana. The file then became a guide to the Northwest.
Collection of the Provincial Archives of British Columbia, which
has by far the richest and most comprehensive library of published works on the subject. This initial survey occupied ten
The next three months were spent in field work. Relevant
material is scattered across the world, but practical considerations
limited the search to essential institutions in North America.
Visits were made to the libraries of the Boston Athenaeum; Boston Public Library; Harvard University; Massachusetts State
XIII Library; Oregon Historical Society; Toronto Public Libraries;
University of British Columbia; the University of California at
Berkeley, especially the Bancroft Library; University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon; University of Victoria; University of Washington; Vancouver Public Library; Victoria University, Toronto;
and Yale University. Three weeks were spent at the National
Library in Ottawa checking the National Union Catalog for
locations of variant editions and translations. In addition, many
libraries and institutions which could not be visited cooperated
through correspondence and inter-library loan.
In May, 1969, Mrs. M. Edwards, M.A. (Aberdeen), M.Libr.
(University of Washington), joined the staff as an assistant, and
Mrs. G. Cropp, B.A. (University of British Columbia), B.L.S.C.
(University of Washington) also assisted for several months.
Both rendered magnificent service in collating entries, checking
references, correcting proofs and standardizing the presentation
of material. The typing of the manuscript was undertaken by
Mrs. M. Gregory, Secretary of the Social Sciences Research
Centre, with some assistance from Mrs. M. Fisk. The nature of
the material made this a very demanding task and the final text
owes much to their competence.
After December, 1969, no new entries were added to the
working file. Thereafter, work was concentrated on the final
draft of the text, and the preparation of auxiliary records. However, early in 1970, two new and important bibliographic studies
became available. The first of these was Harry M. Majors's unpublished Science and exploration on the northwest coast of
North America, 1542-1841, which was made available through
the courtesy of the author and of the University of Washington,
which holds one of the three extant copies. Mr. Majors's coverage of botanical material is much more comprehensive than that
of the present work. As well as the works cited here, he notes
publications by Erik Acharius, David Don, Aylmer Bourke Lambert, Frederick Pursh, Richard Anthony Salisbury and Dawson
The second new bibliography was Rolf Du Rietz's Bibliotheca
Polynesiana, Oslo, 1969. New information obtained from Mr.
xrv Du Rietz about items already cited has been incorporated in this
Most of the difficulties encountered in compilation other than
the selection of items for inclusion, have stemmed from the decision to list all located editions and translations of items cited.
Other bibliographies, check-lists and catalogues of individual collections cite some of the material but, as far as could be ascertained, no other study lists all known editions and translations
together in such a way that their relationship to each other can
be ascertained. The user can determine from this arrangement
which edition is most satisfactory for his purpose. However, this
undertaking was limited in resources of time, staff and funds and
needed rigid control. Moreover, the geographical scattering of
related material which could only be examined bibliographically
and textually at speed and in isolation, has caused imperfections,
and undoubtedly errors, of which the compiler is only too
The intention of acknowledging the advice and assistance
received by the compiler was abandoned, most reluctantly, when
the list of names rose into hundreds. It would be invidious, also,
to single out individual people or institutions, since all those
consulted responded so generously. To all the contributors, the
members of the Advisory Committee, the scholars, the librarians
and the Social Sciences Research Centre, the compiler is deeply
grateful for assistance given.
The distinguished Jesuit bibliographer Augustin de Backer
observed that "un ouvrage de bibliographic ne peut jamais pre-
tendre a la perfection". This is certainly true of the present work
and the Social Sciences Research Centre would be most grateful
to be informed of the inevitable errors and omissions.

In 1790 Broughton was appointed to command the Chatham
on Vancouver's expedition and returned to England with despatches in 1793. Returning to the northwest coast in command of
the Providence, he found Vancouver gone, whereupon he commenced a four-year survey of the coast of Asia. Chapter 3 records
a visit to Nootka Sound in 1796 where Broughton encountered
Maquinna and the ship Lady Washington. The Providence then
proceeded to Juan de Fuca Straits and down the coast of California. Great Britain's claim to the Oregon Country was based
largely on Broughton's exploration of the mouth of the Columbia

Europe. Performed under the direction of Captains
Cook, Clerke and Gore, in His Majesty's ships the
Resolution and Discovery, in the years 1776, 1777,
1778, 1779 and 1780. In three volumes: vol.1 and II
written by Captain James Cook, F.R.S., vol.III by
