Memphrémagog: An Illustrated History Volume 1 bilingual revised edition 2017 (ID 472)





In Memphrémagog: An illustrated History: Louise Abbott produced the first ever landscape history of the Memphrémagog region, which is situated in southern Quebec and northeastern Vermont. The first volume of her two-volume study looks at the transformation of the region from a wilderness to a “working landscape” of farms, gristmills, sawmills, factories, mines and quarries. Abbott’s lively and insightful text is accompanied by reproductions of over 250 fascinating photos, paintings and maps, including many contemporary and historical images that have never been published before

This hard-cover coffee-table book runs 308 pages and has a bilingual text illustrated with 175 archival images and 90 contemporary photos by Louise Abbott and Niels Jensen.
