THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, June 18, 1761 

* Very early Alaska description

Over two pages are consumed with an excellent and very detailed account of that part of "America" which would be Alaska today, and the surrounding area. It is headed: "An Account of That Part of America, which is Nearest to the Land of Kamtchatca." which is an extract of a book titled "Description of Kamtchatca" which was read before the Royal Society. The photos show only portions.
This is one of the earliest descriptive accounts of Alaska we have offered.
Eight pages, red tax stamp on page 2, 8 by 11 inches, great condition.
