16mo - 16.5 x 11.5 cm; 208 pp. Dark burgundy cloth with gilt lettering ("Chipewyan Hymn Book") on front board. Originally published by Desclee of Brussels in 1904, this is a modern reprint done for the Catholic dioceses of northern Canada probably by the Oblates. The approbations are dated 1968. The title page is reproduced from the 1904 edition along with the black and white vignette illustrations present through out. The hymns and / or prayers are introduced by their French name where possible followed by the text in Chipewyan pictographs. The boards show a minimal amount of shelf wear, else the book appears to have never been used.
