Product description

"At the Centennial of Confederation, the University of Toronto Press and Les Presses de l'universite Laval join to issue a special edition of this, the initial volume of the most important Canadian reference work published in our nation's first one hundred years." This work includes 594 biographical articles, dealing with personages of New France, Acadia, the Hudson's Bay company, Newfoundland, early maritime explorers, Indians and others. It includes articles of others whose chief claim to importance is their participation in events at a time when the population of Canada was minute. This copy is in good condition, but the dust jacket has slight tears and marks and the red cloth cover is lightly marked. The pages are clean and bright.
