128 pp, 11 1/4" H. "Strategically located at the confluence of the St. Lawrence River, the Rideau River system and Lake Ontario, the city of Kingston is cloaked in more than three hundred years of history. This picturesque city has attracted an increasing number of artists in recent years, and two of them - poet Joan Finnigan and painter Frank Johnston - have captured the character and spirit of Kingston in a book filled with photographs old and new, maps and engravings, paintings, drawings, historical vignettes and poetry. With an emphasis on the human aspects of Kingston life, (it) is an expression of affection not just for the city and its environs, but for its populace over the generations. Ten original watercolours by Frank Johnston - all faithfully reproduced in full colour - add to the beauty of the book. Along with the wealth of modern and archival material, they reflect the unique atmosphere of a city that has played a significant role in the history of Canada." Light wrinkle down five pages - mostly at front of book (likely from manufacturing process). Dust jacket has minor edge wear, some light edge wrinkling - mainly at top of front panel and flap.
