Notes This is a reprint of the original done in 1860. T.P.L. 5907. Land 1863. Spendlove p.44-45. Sabin 33936. Harper p.167. " As the text indicates, Hunter lived in Stanstead, in the Eastern Townships, and so could describe and illustrate this distinct and very beautiful part of the Province of Quebec from personal knowledge. The plates were accurately drawn and lithographed, and are of much interest and increasing rarity. They were printed in black and white, and sometimes later given a wash of colour. Lithographed by Bufford in Boston who did so many early views for Nathaniel Currier". Spendlove. The plates are oval shaped with interesting small separately titled vignette illustrations at the corners. These attractive antique lithograph views portray this scenic area of Quebec in the mid-nineteenth century. The map indicates the railway connections to the eastern townships.
