Title: Osgoode Hall: An Illustrated History.
Description: Toronto, Dundurn. 2004, First Edition. (ISBN: 1550025139) Hard Cover with dust jacket. Ill.: Kenneth Jarvis, RCA, photographer. 331 pp, square large 8vo (9 1/4" H x 9 1/4" D). B&w and colour illustrations. "Osgoode Hall is a national monument and one of Canada's architectural treasures. Of the many public buildings erected in pre-Confederation Canada, it best encapsulates the diverse stylistic forces that shaped public buildings of its era. The gated lawns, the grandly Venetian rotunda, the ornate courtroom, the portrait-lined walls, and the stained-glass windows evoke a venerable dignity to which few Canadian institutions can aspire. It has been the seat of the Law Society of Upper Canada since 1832 and of several of the Superior Courts of the province for almost as long. It has become a symbol of the legal tradition, not only in Ontario, but throughout Canada and beyond." Small gift notation on verso of free front endpaper. Dust jaclet has some very minor edge wrinkling. Very Good+/Very Good+.
