Ten Years in Winnipeg / a Narration of the Principal Events in the / History of the City of Winnipeg
Winnipeg, MB, No publisher stated, 1879. 1st edition. Hardcover. pp. 226, advts,8vo. Freshly re-bound in dark blue cloth with gilt spine lettering,Begg came to Winnipeg in 1867, and was the first merchant to bring in to the former Red River Colony goods of Canadian manufacture. An entrepreneur as well as a merchant, he started two local newspapers and wrote extensively, mainly on Manitoba or commercial themes. Nursey was more of a journalist and entered various joint publishing ventures with Begg. This history, full of interesting, if obscure facts, details the minutia of everyday business, political and social life in Winnipeg from approximately the day of the departure of Louis Riel (August 23, 1870) to July 1979. The 48-page business directory at the end of the book is fascinating. See Peel (3rd) 860. This copy has new endpapers and bears a library stamp on the first page of advertisements. The first eight pages (which includes the map) are stained. The rest of the contents are exceptionally clean and unmarked. Ill.: map, business directory.
