Victoria: Province of British Columbia, 1916. Small quarto (10.5"). Uncommon copy bound in leather. 27 p. of text; 11 Plates.

Of historical interest in terms of the development and early work of the Provincial Museum, this war-time issue features many plates of acquisitions and field-studies: a sandstone medicine dish and a spindle whorl of maple as part of the Anthropology synopsis; figures of the liver of Black-tail or Columbian Coast Deer from Texada Island being part of the investigation of reports of diseased animals; Bare Island Bird Sanctuary, Haro Strait; Geometridae 'new to science'; and three photos of a 'new species of Diptera'. Of interest to collectors of ephemera relating to American Presidents is Plate 1 showing visitors to the Provincial Museum - many of whom made the journey northward from the Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco - including (then) Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, shown in the company of Sir Richard McBride and others on the museum steps. A sound, clean copy, Near Fine.
