When the United States Capitol Historical Society began to explore the possibility of issuing a history of the Capitol, it discovered an overwhelming number of books, periodicals, newspaper articles, and public documents dealing with the Capitol. The society concluded that what was needed was an annotated bibliographical guide to works concerned with the building. This book is the result. The 2,290 entries here arranged alphabetically by author or title, have been annotated with a guide to contents, pertinent pagination, headings, and chapters. A detailed index has been included for the convenience of the user. For the historian, architect, or layman who wants information about the Capitol and its development, this volume will serve as an indispensable reference guide."

161 pp, small 4to (10 1/4" H). B&w photographs, reproductions, colour plates. "(S)pins marvellous tales of boxing matches, typing contests, peace rallies, military musters, beauty pageants, Shakespeare in Yiddish, labour and political conventions, religious conventicles, temperance meetings, and rock and roll extravaganzas. For the past 100 years Massey Hall has witnessed a dazzling human cavalcade: Winston Churchill, Betrand Russell, Anna Pavlova, Jack Dempsey, Glenn Gould, Dr. Spock, George Gershwin, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Isadora Duncan, Stompin' Tom Connors, Rudyard Kipling, Sergei Rachmaninov, Thomas Mann, Charlie Parker, Tom Longboat, Igor Stravinsky, Eleanor Roosevelt, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Will Rogers, the Dalai Lama, and the Barenaked Ladies. All have trodden the boards of the Old Lady of Shuter Street, which has served as a kind of magic lantern displaying the tastes and passions of Canadians in the 20th century. Chronicles the personalities behind the building of the Hall and the formation of the world-renowned Mendelssohn Choir and Toronto Symphony. We meet Hart Almerrin Massey, the family patriarch who bankrolled the Hall and dedicated it to the memory of Charles Albert, one of his sons. And we encounter the genius of Dr. Augustus Vogt, the founder of the Mendelssohn, and witness the mastery and merriment of the Toronto Symphony's Sir Ernest MacMillan, a man Roberston Davies has said 'set new standards of taste, purged the repertoire, and demanded a new quality of attention'. In the end, though, it is Massey Hall that emerges as the chief character in Kilbourn's lyrical evocation of time and place." Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top of spine.
