Lovell's Gazetteer of British North America

A Gazetteer of British North America, containing reliable information touching the climatic conditions of the different Provinces, the relative fertility of their soils, the vast improvements made in agriculture, commerce and trade, modes of travel and transportation, mining and educational interests, and embodying in a compact form all the outer facts, geographical, topographical, statistical and mercantile of every section of British North America, has become an acknowledged necessity; and such a work will doubtless be gladly welcomed by the people of this continent, and by the commercial, manufacturing and emigrating classes in Great Britain and the continent of Europe, and recognized as an indispensable companion and guide by the crowds of tourists, travelers, sea-side excursionists and sportsmen who are tempted in search of health or pleasure, information or profit, to visit the seaside resorts fringing the line of the "Intercolonial;" the romantic mountain-girt shores of Gaspé and Labrador; the celebrated gold fields and coal mines of Nova Scotia and British Columbia; the famed salmon rivers of the Lower St. Lawrence and New Brunswick; the inexhaustible fisheries of Newfoundland and Cape Breton; the fair and fertile plains of Prince Edward Island, the youngest daughter of the Dominion; the rich copper and silver mines of Lakes Huron and Superior; and the great valley of the Saskatchewan.
