Likely a reprint of one of the first runs of The Canadian Handbook and Tourist's Guide (before M Longmoore & Co. moved to new premises at 31 Great St James St), this is a useful resource for studying the text of the Handbook but is sadly lacking the ten photographs by William Notman for which the book originally received acclaim.
