About this Item

4to. xiii, 254[2]p. Introduction by Edward J. O'Brien. Colophon reads as follows: This edition of "Romantic Canada", which book is written by Victoria Hayward and illustrated with photographs by Edith S. Watson, and published by the Macmillan Company of Canada, Limited, is printed and bound by the T.H. Best Printing Company, Limited, Toronto, Canada. Frontispiece black and white captioned photo plus 76 other full-page black and white captioned photos by Edith S. Watson. Orange paper over boards with a cloth spine that bears a paper title label in orange printed in black. All edges untrimmed. Wear to covers with the corners just rubbed through, some wear along edges of covers, scuff marks and some soiling to paper on the covers, cloth spine somewhat soiled, paper label darkened and slightly chipped around the edges but most all there, frontispiece edges repaired with tape, all illustrations present and in fine condition, else very good to near fine with some pages uncut and with no internal markings--all in all in extraordinary condition for a large and fragile book. No dust jacket. "'Romantic Canada' aims to give, and from the hands of two women singularly fittd to give it, the story of Canada in the romance of its simple industries simply accomplished. It gives the story, in word and in picture, of all sorts and conditions of folk, as they are to be found in the faraway and little-visited territories of the Dominion. Author and artists have left the beaten track, for it is in the highways and by-ways that this particular Canada, which is passing as we grow in population, as steel links territory to territory the more easily and the more quickly, is to be found. The photographs and discussion of this hinterland of Canada are quite unique in the history of Canadian literature and photographic art. The author and artist have gone from Canadian coast to Canadian coast. They have thought it not unwise also to include matter descriptive of their travels in Labrador and Newfoundland." [froom the Publisher's Foreword]. Bookseller Inventory # 007653
