Book Notes: Illustrated History redux
Posted by Christopher Moore
Always a good day when the courier arrives with a big package, and it's your new book.
New old this time. The Illustrated History of Canada in a (gulp) 25th anniversary revised edition, from McGill-Queen's University. Info here
We're on the third publisher now. The book first came out with Lester & Orpen Dennys, which died soon thereafter. Then it had a long life with Key Porter, now also defunct. Now picked up and revived by MGQP, who may survive a while anyway.
They also announce they have just sold the Russian-language rights. To go along with the already out-there French and Spanish editions.
