LOVELL'S GENERAL GEOGRAPHY FOR THE USE OF - Hodgins, J. George - 1862. 
Montreal: John Lovell, 1862. First Edition. About Good/No Jacket. Montreal: John Lovell, 1862 This pioneer atlas and geography states first published in 1861 on the copyright page and contains the dated 1861 preferatory note but is dated 1862 on the title page. Thus it may be a later printing of the first edition, though I have yet to talk to anyone who had seen a copy with a 1861 dated titlepage. Worldcat lists only one microreproduction and no hard copy which may, (or may not), precede. 4to. (28cm.) Hard bound in original pictorial paper over boards with navy leather spine. P. 100. Rear cover text advertises the Lovell's Series of School books and is dated May 1861. Complete with all maps present. "It may be proper to state here that an entirely new series of maps has been constructed at great expense for this Geography by draftsmen in Canada". These 43 coloured maps by R. Barlow(17) of Montreal, F. N. Boxer(15) of Montreal, A. W. Graham(9) of Toronto & Montreal and two maps uncredited are historic early examples of the cartographer's art in Canada. These is an extremely rare item as extant copies have been "parted out" over the years for the mapping. It is my hope that there is an institution or collector out there that is willing to pay half of the "map value" to keep this chunk of Canadian Heritage whole. Condition: The binding is going and pages are loose but attached. Covers front and rear are edgeworn and soiled but all print and graphic elements are clearly visible. Map and interior quality is generally Very Good, excepting occasional small spots of foxing or soiling noted on some pages. There are no tears to any map.
