Octavo, original blue cloth titled in black, map endpapers. 178 pp, Appendixes, Index at rear. Frontispiece with tissue guard and numerous plates. An inscribed presentation copy from Pringle, here offering the book as a gift to the library of the United Services Centre, Burrard Street, Vancouver, BC, with a full-page inscription by Pringle on the recto of the frontispiece, dated 1943. The inscription directly discusses the material in the book, and it notes that he has marked which chapters and illustrations he thinks will be of special interest with an "X", this is indeed done on the contents page and list of illustrations, there are also several corrections to the text in Pringle's hand. Pringle, however, should really be referred to as the Editor, as the book is a collection of essays by various writers on the United Church missionary excursions into the wilds of Canada, primarily on boats plying the West Coast of British Columbia, but also in Newfoundland and Labrador. Later name signature & date on half-title leaf. A very good, clean copy, all plates present. Inscribed copies of this book are quite scarce.
