Original government binding of the Alaska Boundary Tribunal with 25 sectional maps and index showing the line fixed by the Tribunal, 1904, Government Printing Office. 16 x 19". Title page and fly page torn, folded. Binding loose. Maps numbered 1 through 24 plus 16b, all as shown on the index. Tucked in back from another publication of the Tribunal are four maps: A) p31 Sketch of the Portland Channel and Vicinity; B) p36 The Provinces of British Columbia and Vancouver Island; C) p41 British Columbia and the Northwest Territory from the Geologic Survey of Canada; D) p47 1898 British Columbia, Athabaska and Alberta. This work appears to be the first publishd work of the 1903 Tribunal, which was the result of a long standing disagreement between Canada and the US on the boundary between these two countries in a remote region. It covers an area that was intensely prospected during the opening of the Alaska-Klondyke gold rush, and resulted in Dawson staying on the Canada side. Interesting to note is that the region was full of miners from both Canada and the US; and while professional publications stuck to the country of origin, the region is a very large gold district that mixed the shipments to and from mining camps through both countries, such that actual production figures are exceptionally difficult to render. Very rare and desireable, the first offering of this Atlas by our company. A group of maps from the boundary work through 1920 as published 1923-1928 is found in another lot in this catalog.
