The work also provides a source of agricultural and industrial statistics, including a table on "Furs and Pelts". The categories of 'Origins of the People' is noteworthy as it provides information on Chinese, Indians, "Half-Breeds-Metis", Jewish, etc. Original wrapper beautifully rebound in silk with spine titles gilt over red morocco.
