Winnipeg 1884 [Bird's-Eye View of Winnipeg] [Map]
Ottawa, ON, Mortimer & Co. Lith. 1884. 1st printing. Map. The map show some minor edge-chipping, mainly at the top and bottom. The colours are bright and the map is free of staining. A large three-colour map measuring 82 x 106 cms. A beautiful example of one of the 'bird's-eye' maps so popular in the last half of the 19th century. This is a particularly fine example, showing the burgeoning City of Winnipeg, only fourteen years after the Province of Manitoba became the fifth province admitted into the Canadian Confederation, and eleven years after the incorporation of the city itself. The map shows the city just after the coming of the railway in 1881, and just before the building of Winnipeg's curious 'gingerbread' city hall in 1887. The famous corner of Portage and Main is clearly displayed, although Portage Avenue is identified as Queen Street (the name wasn't changed until 1891). The map shows six large steamboats on the Red River, three of which are side-wheelers - a bit of artistic (cartographic?) licence, as the Winnipeg rivers were only navigable to stern wheelers and none of the vessels shown could have navigated under the two fixed bridges - the original Main Street bridge built in 1881 and Winnipeg's first bridge, the Louise Bridge, built a year or two earlier. Bordering the map are 15 circular views of notable buildings, and four larger views - one in each corner - of two private residences and two businesses (presumably sponsors of this map). Population totals and assessed value of property are shown for 1872, 1880, and 1883. At the bottom centre of the map is a cartouche showing an Indian in headress looking out over the prairie, below which is printed: 'Entered according to the Act of Parliament of Canada in the year 1884 by W. G. Fonseca in the Office of the Minister of Education.'.

BEGG, ALEXANDER AND WALTER R. NURSEY
Ten Years in Winnipeg / a Narration of the Principal Events in the / History of the City of Winnipeg
Winnipeg, MB, No publisher stated, 1879. 1st edition. Hardcover. pp. 226, advts,8vo,,Freshly re-bound in dark blue cloth with gilt spine lettering,Begg came to Winnipeg in 1867, and was the first merchant to bring in to the former Red River Colony goods of Canadian manufacture. An entrepreneur as well as a merchant, he started two local newspapers and wrote extensively, mainly on Manitoba or commercial themes. Nursey was more of a journalist and entered various joint publishing ventures with Begg. This history, full of interesting, if obscure facts, details the minutia of everyday business, political and social life in Winnipeg from approximately the day of the departure of Louis Riel (August 23, 1870) to July 1979. The 48-page business directory at the end of the book is fascinating. See Peel (3rd) 860. This copy has new endpapers and bears a library stamp on the first page of advertisements. The first eight pages (which includes the map) are stained. The rest of the contents are exceptionally clean and unmarked. Ill.: map, business directory.
