We are offering this wonderful antiquarian book entitled "The River of the West. Life and Adventure in the Rocky Mountains and Oregon", by Frances Fuller Victor. The book consists of 602 pages and many plates including a portrait of Joe Meek. It is the biography of Joe Meek, one of the many interesting characters involved in the era of the fur trade. The author has a gift for writing a very interesting story and the book has been described as one of the best reading books on the fur trade. It has been expertly rebound in modern buckram with a gilt spine. The portrait of Meek has slight spotting and one of the text leafs is detached but present. The binding is sound and other than the issues mentioned would be described as very good. It is listed in Howes as V89 and he classifies it as "aa."
