BOOK - Picturesque Canada: The Country As It Was And Is - 2 Volume Set
Edited by George Munro Grant
Originally published by Beldon Bros., Toronto, 1882

Beyond being an extraordinary history, Picturesque Canada: The Country As It Was and Is is one of the most important examples of wood-engraved illustration that has ever been published in Canada. Hammerburg Productions has re-created this gem to a very high standard that has thrilled collectors of Canadian history and illustration.

Profusely illustrated with over 500 wood engravings [reproduced in extraordinary detail], many of them full-page. The original book was illustrated under the supervision of L. R. O'Brien, first President of the Royal Canadian Academy.
