Langdon, John E.
Guide to Marks on Early Canadian Silver 18th and 19th Centuries.
Seller ID: 1206
Toronto: Ryerson, 1968. First edition (viii, 104). Narrow folio (17 cm.) in dark blue cloth, silver gilt titles, frontispiece. "With a special supplement of Hendry & Leslie 'House' Punches and the Marks of Dealers for whom they made Silver." Early marks on Canadian silver, while derivative of their French and (later) English forebears, developed somewhat casually and were adapted to the makers' preferences rather than answering to a guild's stipulations-- some were merely decorative and others imitative of 'mother country' markings. An as new copy of the Canadian silver collector's essential vade mecum. Quite scarce.
