Legends of Vancouver

Vancouver: The Thomson Stationery Company, 1913. Hardcover. Sixth edition. Publisher's brown cloth, very good. With unsigned 1914 inscription on one of the preliminary pages, but not in author's hand. 138 pp, illustrated with photoplates by Bishop & Christie. Johnson (1861-1913) was a Canadian poet, author, and performer who was popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Her father was a hereditary Mohawk chief of mixed ancestry and her mother was an English immigrant. Johnson—whose poetry was published in Canada, the United States, and Great Britain—was among a generation of widely-read writers who began to define Canadian literature. She was a key figure in the construction of the field as an institution and has made an indelible mark on Indigenous women's writing and performance as a whole. As of this listing there is only one other copy for sale online, a 2nd printing inscribed by author for $762. Very good. Item #H34651
