2 (Small, Henry Beaumont) The Canadian Handbook and Tourist's Guide Giving a Description of Canadian Lake and River Scenery and Places of Historical Interest with the Best Spots for Fishing and Shooting
Montreal M. Longmoore & Co. 1867 Second Edition Hardcover Very Good 
5 1/4" x 8" gilt-pictorial cloth; ex-library with usual markings and quite a bit of general wear. The nice feature of the book is the presence of 8 original albumen photographs by the great Canadian photographer, William Notman. Most of the eight are small - approx. 2 1/4" x 3", but the frontispiece is a striking photo of an "old trapper" in full garb with a pelt thrown over his shoulder and a trap slung from the other shoulder. Each of the photos has been stamped (yikes! ) along the bottom corner by the Louisville Free Public Library; but the stamp is small and could possibly be erased or matted over. The photos are faded but still striking and in particular the frontispiece (which is larger, 3 1/2" x 5") is a powerful image of the era.
