Rare Original County Atlases
ORIGINAL 1879 ATLAS - Historical Atlas of Carleton County Ontario, Illustrated ORIGINAL
Published by Belden & Co., Toronto 1879
The original full title page of this historical atlas is: "Illustrated Historical Atlas of the County of Carleton (Including the City of Ottawa) Ont. Compiled Drawn and Published From The Personal Examinations and Surveys by H. Belden & Co., Toronto 1879". Atlas is in large format 17 5/8" X 14 3/4". This original atlas is in very good condition. A few pages have a bit of minor chipping on the bottom corner. The binding was loose and the spine covering was torn, so we had it professionally rebound with new boards and covered with high quality black Tanotex covering (looks like heavy grained leather but much more durable). The original book covering from the 1879 atlas was carefully removed and then re-applied over the new covering.
The book includes a lengthy historical sketch of the County of Carleton (including the city of Ottawa); individual detailed township maps with the name of the owner on every lot/farm including lots & concessions; detailed maps of towns and villages, drawings of many people and important buildings. Check the photographs closely before buying or inspect the book personally at Carleton Place (near Ottawa, 613-257-7878).
