Mapping Upper Canada, 1780-1867: An Annotated Bibliography of Manuscript and Printed Maps
The early face of what is now Ontario was documented in an extraordinary number of maps. Thousands of them have survived to the present day - maps of the area as a whole, its regions, and its cities and towns. In this bibliography Joan Winearls offers a guide to maps of the province of Upper Canada/Canada West, manuscript and printed, from the beginning of British settlement up to Confederation.
Each entry includes a physical description of the map, brief annotations including associated documents and sources, and information about where the map is now found. The book as a whole provides a unique resource for historians, geographers, genealogists, surveyors, archaologists, and local history buffs.
Appendices examine township surveys; registered plans of urban subdivisions, this describing much of the evolution of towns; nautical charts of the Great Lakes; and boundary surveys. The bibliography is fully indexed by author, place, and subject.
