EMIGRATION TO CANADA. THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO; ITS SOIL, CLIMATE, RESOURCES, INSTITUTIONS, FREE GRANT LANDS, &C., &C. FOR THE INFORMATION OF INTENDING EMIGRANTS. ISSUED BY AUTHORITY OF THE GOVERNMENT OF ONTARIO.

Toronto: Printed by Hunter, Rose & Co. 1869. Tall 8vo. Original printed wrappers [some dusting, chipped at blank lower corners], with engraved vignette of an Ontario farm; the rear wrapper prints Carling's inducements to emigrants; he was Commissioner of Agriculture and Public Works for the Province of Ontario. Wrapper title [as issued]. iv, 39, [1 blank] pp, plus large folding map and two full-page maps, as issued. Very Good.

The virtues of emigration to Ontario are delineated and extolled. Carling addresses his remarks to those "who may desire to mend their present position, to become freeholders, instead of leaseholders or annual tenants, to own a farm of their own, instead of sitting under the shadow and will of a landlord." To those "who, in short, feel too independent for their present position, we say unhesitatingly 'come to Canada.'" This is the first of several editions.
