Biographical / Historical:
This volume is listed in Pilling, B.A.E. Bulletin 1, 1887, page 94, as part of a manuscript folio that he calls "Contributions to the natural history of North America." Report on observations made in Ungava and Labrador in 1882-1884 by Lucien M. Turner. "B.A.E. Manuscripts 2505-a and 2505-b also form part of this report, and three is an additional volume with pages numbered 1842-2127 (listed in Pilling as "Ethnology of the Innuit,") which had not been located in 6/63. Manuscript 2505-c has not been titled by Turner, but the cover is marked in his handwriting with Roman Numerals XXV & XXVI. These numberals do not seem to be related to the pagination and possibly refer to the state before binding.
