304 pp, small 4to (10 1/2" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, drawings, plans. "In a lively and informative text (the authors trace) the ecclesiastical architecture of early Ontario from the prehistoric Amerindians' Serpent Mound at Rice Lake to the Confederation era. Longhouse, synagogue, meeting-house, little country church (are all described), outling the circumstances under which they were built, the architectural features, and the changes which were made to 'update' the buildings and bring them into line with current fashion. It is an entertaining and highly readable social history. The anecdotes about the personalities and circumstances involved in each project make us aware that behind every building was a builder, and housed in every church there was a congregation made up of people of the community whose faith and aspirations were represented in the structures they erected." Book is Near Fine. Dust jacket has light edge wear - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, a few tiny tears archivally taped; light fading to spine, flap-folds, top of flaps and top of front panel; a few small rub marks, minor soiling.
