(He) was born in Halton County, Ontario, in 1836, (and) lived through the period when the Canadian West was being tamed and settled, the fur trade was coming to an end, and the Indians were submitting to the treaties. He had a glimpse of how it had been at an earlier period, and his paintings, most frequently of Indian and buffalo subjects, typically combine careful observation with an Arcadian vision of a lost era, and are among the most evocative works of Canadian nineteenth century art. (This) is the first major book to be published on Frederick Arthur Verner. (Joan Murray presents) a vivid and far more detailed account of his life than has ever been given before, and in surveying the whole range of his work as an artist, gives it a fresh and sensitive new interpretation." Very minor edge wear, small area of shelf soiling on bottom of text block. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - moderate at top of spine, small faint water stain at bottom inside of spine, three very small dents on rear panel and one on spine, minor rubbing.
