The Dominion of Canada, with Newfoundland and an Excursion to Alaska. Handbook for Travellers

Leipzig, Karl Baedeker, 1907 (third edition, revised and augmented).

Red cloth lightly rubbed and marked; an excellent copy 'with 13 maps and 12 plans' (all in colour, many folding).

Provenance: Josiah Henry Symon, with his armorial bookplate on the front pastedown. Sir Josiah Henry Symon (1846-1934), lawyer, politician, and pre-eminent man of books, was knighted in January 1901 'for services to the cause of Federation' ('Australian Dictionary of Biography'), but he wasn't about to waste those obsolete bookplates.
