James Isham's Observations On Hudsons Bay, 1743 and Notes and Observations on a Book Entitled A Voyage to Hudsons Bay In The Dobbs Galley, 1749
ISHAM, James; RICH, E. E.; JOHNSON, A. M. (eds.)
Although his style, grammar, and spelling are eccentric by today's standards, Isham's writings stand out as essential source-material for any approach to the fur trade of the 18th century, for the challenges faced by the HBC, and for a study of the flora and fauna of Ruperts Land. Isham was at once a skilled and understanding trader, a perceptive planner and strategist, and a conscientious and observant natural historian.
