Baker Lake Prints 1988 (Canadian Indigenous Art)
2 Baker Lake Prints 1988 (Canadian Indigenous Art)
Baker Lake, Ottawa, Canada Canadian Arctic Producers 1988 0920234879 / 9780920234877 Card cover Very good condition 
This is an interesting booklet about Canadian indigenous art from the Baker Lake area of Ottawa. It began with the Sanavik co-operative which endeavored to create a print program. Unfortunately it didn't catch fire right away, so instead of producing huge numbers of art prints they decided to choose carefully and confine each to a limited edition of no more than 50 copies. The booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 39 pristine pages. The only fault is some light sunning to spine. There are real photographs of the area and its people, both black and white aand color art, and photos of the artists at work.

Canada 1939 New York World's Fair Edition
5 Canada 1939 New York World's Fair Edition
Ottawa,Canada Dominion Bureau of Statistics. Department of Trade & Commerce 1939 Soft cover Good 
This is really a nice publication from the 1939 World's Fair, all about Canada. In part, it beckonsto travelers, but it's also a serious look at Canada's industries and exports. The book is tightly bound and clean, bit as with every copy I have ever seen, it has a few faults. The spine shows wear to top and bottom, though I have re-glued it and it's firm. There's also a little bit of pink stain on the front page, creasing to upper front corner, and the page opposite the color plates shows some foxing. Overall though, the book is quite wonderful with a pull-out color map,lots of photos, and several fold-outs about various industries, including the manufacture of cellophane. Book measures 5-1/2"x 8-3/4" and has 176 pages.

Canadian National Railways Menu September 6,1939
7 Canadian National Railways Menu September 6,1939
Canada Canadian National Railways 1939 card cover Very Good 
Very handsome 1939 menu for passengers on the Canadian National Railway September 6, 1939. This was a banner year for Canada with the arrival of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth who in May of '39 took a Royal Tour of the country stopping at both small towns and large cities to the delight of fervent crowds. To celebrate the Royal Tour the two Canadian railways -- the Canadian National and the Canadian Pacific --each worked hard to outdo the other in providing half the cars for the Royal Train. Of course by the time this menu was printed the hoopla was all over, but the cover shows The National Monument at Ottawa which was unveiled for the King and Queen on May 18th, 1939. A very nice addition to the menu, Candiana, railroadiana, or travel collection. Measures 6-1/2"x9-1/2" and is printed on heavy card. The left side is in English and the right in French.

Murray Hill Taxis Ltd. Operating Montreal Tours
13 Murray Hill Taxis Ltd. Operating Montreal Tours
Montreal, Canada Canadian Tourist Association No date circa 1940's soft cover Good condition 
This travel guide has it all -- great hotels, restaurants, things to do, things to buy. It measures 7" x 8" and has 25 counted pages with brown printing and sepia photographs. It was tricky to figure out the date, but after several tries I got it -- a photo of Countess Nicol and her son (see photo) did it. The Countess and Count were Little People -- I remembered seeing that picture somewhere else. It was supposed to have been in the 1940's. I think that's about right because the fashions are 30's-40's and there is very nice photo of a tour bus.

Ontario Non-Resident Angling License 1955
16 Ontario Non-Resident Angling License 1955
Ontario, Canada Ontario Canada Department of Lands & Forests 1955 soft cover good 
This 1955 fishing license was issued to a man from Parma, Ohio off to Canada on an "angling vacation." The license is a small booklet which contains pertinent details about the issuee, as well as Ontario "fishery regulations" and info on the Game and Fisheries Act. It shows browning on both front and back covers, as well as a loss of the top layer of paper at the bottom back corner (small). All fishing coupons are still intact, so Mr. Martin must not have been too lucky. The coupons are very specific, each for a different type of fish and each allowing for 5 or six of most species, but only one each for Atlantic salmon, quananiche, and sturgeon.Light blue pages very clean and tightly bound
