Port Hope: a History

Port Hope: Ganaraska Press, 2007. First edition, signed and inscribed by the author, photographs by John de Visser, and a Foreword by Farley Mowat (vii, 228). Quarto (22 cm.), the original sheets in bespoke binding-- three-quarter green morocco over complimentary marbled paper, gilt title to cover and spine, matching green endpapers and top edge. The binding suits Ian Montagne's beautifully produced history of this Ontario town with one of the best preserved 19th century streetscapes in the country.
