Canadian Pamphlets and Broadsides

Abstract: 
Pre-1930 Canadian pamphlets and broadsides from the collections of the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library. The collection includes items printed in Canada, by Canadian authors, or about Canadian subjects, mainly of a non-literary nature. Searching, browsing, full text and images are provided for each document.

This site provides access to the pre-1930 Canadian pamphlet and broadside holdings of the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library by supplying both page images in full colour, and full searchability of the contents of each item. To date the site consists of 597 broadsides (single sheets, printed on one or both sides) and 2062 pamphlet titles which amounts to 71508 page images. Additional titles will be added on a regular basis. The collection includes items printed in Canada, by Canadian authors, or about Canadian subjects, mainly of a non-literary nature.

 

Technical information, including the scanning process, can be found on the site's technical information page.
