Details
Nova Scotia illustrated
William Eagar, 1839-40
EAGAR, William (1796-1839). Nova Scotia illustrated in a Series of Views taken on the Spot and on Stone. Halifax: C.H. Belcher, [July 1839-August 1840].

Very rare series of skillful views of Nova Scotia. The artist, an Irishman, was living in Maritime Canada by the 1820s, working as an artist and teacher. The present work was released in four parts of three prints each, with the final two published posthumously. Complete sets are quite rare; none are recorded at auction—the only copy to appear was incomplete, as is the copy in the Abbey collection. Abbey, Travel 620 (3 parts only).

Four parts in one, folio (425 x 277mm). Title with lithographic vignette mounted, 12 lithographic views after Eagar. Contemporary sugar-paper wrapper, stab sewn. Custom box.
