350 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w pictorial endpapers, photographs, reproductions, map. "(T)ells the story of a major North American city, from its earliest beginnings to the present day. Etienne Brule, who portaged the Chaudiere Falls in 1610, was the first white man to view the site of the future capital. He was followed by a procession of explorers, fur traders, and missionaries, but it was not until the year 1800 that the first permanent settlers arrived in the area. By the time Colonel John By completed the Rideau Canal in 1832, Bytown had become a boom town. In 1858, Queen Victoria's choice of the newly named Ottawa as the capital of Canada assured it a central place in the history of the fledgling nation. This comprehensive and fast-paced narrative explores every aspect of Ottawa's development into a beautiful modern city that still retains much of the charm of a small town. It tells a lively tale of royalty and rogues, commerical buccaneers and civil servants, soldiers and statemen, missionaries and millionaires. From the laying of the cornerstone of the Parliament Buildings in 1860 to the Rideau Club fire of 1979, the author neglects no important civic event, nor any significant public or private enter-prise." 1" piece missing at bottom of front pastedown (folded under itself), tiny bump at top of spine, minor corner wear. Dust jacket has very light edge wear, tiny tear and creases at top of spine - archivally taped, minor rubbing.
