About This Item
Canadian Pacific Railway, 1907. pp 36 A pamphlet published by the Canadian Pacific Railway encouraging "energetic and enterprising" Scots to emigrate to Canada. This description of the country is by a journalist from The Scotsman newspaper who was invited by the president of the railway company to make a tour and report on "the progress and resources of the Dominion". Illustrated with black and white photographs. Very good in coloured card wrappers, creased and nicked to the edges but bright and complete. Provenance: from the recent Glasgow dispersal sale of Alasdair Gray's library. Gray (1934-2019) is acknowledged as one of the most innovative figures in Scottish literature and culture. Painter, novelist, playwright, poet and editor, Gray frequently combined his diverse artistic talents within single works to challenge existing forms. He has been described as 'Blending satire and tragedy, realism and fantasy, his work has been credited with spurring a renaissance in Scottish literature.'
