About this Item

2 p.l.,lviii,xx,14p., atlas folio, original cloth, rebacked, an extensively restored and sophisticated copy, 45 coloured maps on 43 sheets (22 boudle), 170 views on 53 sheets (1 double, 18 full-page), 90 portraits on 12 sheets (33 additional portraits as insets on some views), imprint cut out from title-page and replaced, index leaf cut down and mounted with loss about half of the first 4 columns of text, pp. i-liii from another copy and a little smaller, double page view of Parliament repaired in LL with some small loss, unidentified leaf following view of Parliament missing, view of Ralf Merry's residence missing large piece (approx. 3 x 6 inches), numerous leaves reinforced in margins or with repairs, else good. This copy comprises the regular Belden Atlas of the Dominion of Canada, but contains in addition, THE VERY RARE EASTERN TOWNSHIPS SUPPLEMENT, comprising "Historical Sketch of the Eastern Townships and S. W. Quebec", (pp. i-xx), the 14 country maps on 12 sheets (2 double) of the townships and countries of the Eastern Township; the "Subscriber's Directory" of the Eastern Townships (pp. 1-14, at the end). In addition, 112 of the 170 views of villages, farms, residences, industries, etc. found throughout the atlas relate to the Eastern Townships, which is substantially more than found in the normal Belden atlas. This is the only known format in which the so-called Eastern Townships Atlas appeared; it was never separately published. In this copy, while there is extensive restoration, those sections comprising the Eastern Townships are generally unrestored and in the best condition. This is likely the rarest of all of the Canadian Dominion and County atlases of the last 3 decades of the 19th century. Bookseller Inventory # 000037
