Canada in the 1840s: The Nation's Illustrated Diary , makes available rare Canadian material extracted from the first illustrated newspaper, the Illustrated London News . This paper began publishing in 1842 and the excerpts on Canada have been carefully compiled from original copies in the possession of the author.

All important events of the 1840s are included as they appeared at the time, but presented with modern, professional layout and a larger print style than was used in the original newspaper. There are 87 wood engravings and the book is fully indexed.

The 1840s was a time of change - political fervor led to riots, borders with the United States were settled and there was even talk of annexation. Canada's population of approximately two million was rapidly increasing with the influx of emigrants, especially from Ireland. This diary presents the best opportunity to read first hand about the events as they occurred which shaped the history of Canada.
