Title   THE CANADIANS.

Publisher    Fitzhenry and Whiteside, (Don Mills, Ontario, 1979).

Seller ID   11526

306 pp, small 4to (10 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, reproductions, color plates.

"George Woodcock's lively descriptions are enhanced by more than 250 black and white illustrations, many never published before and others proven favourites. These, together with 16 pages of full colour, bring a panorama of Canadian impressions from early Eskimo carvings and the sketch books of Yukon hopefuls to the artistic lineage of such artists as Jack Shadbolt and Alex Colville and the tracings of modern Canadian architecture. (He) punctuates his new insights into the Canadian style with 30 delightfully candid and often humorous profiles of some of the great regional figures from Samuel Hearne to Camillien Houde, from Joseph Brant to Joey Smallwood, from Amor de Cosmos to Margaret Laurence and from Tiktak to Donald Creighton." Previous owners initials on free front endpaper. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has moderate edge wear, light rubbing, a few tiny to small closed tears - some with creases. VG+/G+
