Canada: Painted By T. Mower Martin
A.& C. Black, 1907. 272 pages plus advertisements and fold out map at back. Index. Dozens of colour plates. The author's idea has been "to describe the great natural features of the land, in its broader characteristics - its coasts, rivers, mountains, lakes and prairies, those physical beauties and sublime effects of naturs for which the region is specially famous. With this he has attempted to depict the seasons, and the beauty of the Canadian woods. In addition there is given a brief sketch of the settlement and development of the different communities, with special reference to the great centres of provincial and racial activities, and a reference to the people, its origins, composite ideals, and the leading actors on its historical stage of progress and accomplishment." - from Author's note. Foxing throughout. Prior owner's details, dated 1911, atop half-title page. Colour frontisplate and tissue protector loose but present. Three other plates loose but present. Above-average but not excessive wear. Illustrated red cloth-covered boards with gilt lettering and decorations. Binding intact.
