Perley: Province of New Brunswick
George Hayward Perley. "Map of the Province of New Brunswick, Compiled From The Latest Authorities." St. Johns, N.B.: Henry Chubb & Co., 1853. Separately issued, folding map: dissected into 15 sections and mounted on linen. 20 3/4 x 21. Lithograph by J.H. Bufford. Original outline color. Paper somewhat toned and light spotting. Otherwise, very good condition. Folding into original cloth covers.

The demand for good local maps led to the development of regional maps, such as this provincial image of New Brunswick, in the middle of the nineteenth century. Typically, topography, towns, roads, lakes, and railroads are shown with impressive detail throughout. $250



Grand Trunk Railway System. "The Tour Through Canada of His Royal Highness Prince Arthur of Connaught April 1906." Montreal: Grand Trunk Railway System, 1906. Quarto. 27 ll. plus folding map. Lovely embossed in colors boards. Age browning to cover, but interior is immaculate with deckle edge to pages. Good condition.

The Grand Trunk Railway System connected the U.S. ports of New York, New London, Boston and Portland with the Canadian ports of Quebec and Montreal, then to the Great Lakes with Chicago as its western terminus. This promotional book was issued with notes of scenes along the way by Prince Arthur of the British Royal family commemorating his tour. A lovely example of railroad promotion as North American railways reached their greatest potential.

The map in the back is: "Grand Trunk Railway System" Wax engraving. 6 3/4 x 12 1/2 (neatlines) plus full margins, by Poole Brothers in Chicago. $125
