Mapping Upper Canada, 1780-1867: An Annotated Bibliography of Manuscript and Printed Maps

By Joan Winearls

© 1991

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.
