Canadian Landscape, by F. H. Brigden, with biographical notes by J. E. Middleton. 4to; 112 pages with many illustrations, including 24 color plates. Toronto: The Ryerson Press, 1944 and 1945. $5.00.

This fine volume presents the work of a man of great courage, a member of the Alpine Club of Canada on artistic qualification, who, although crippled by arthritis, has attended mountain camps and recorded in vivid watercolors the scenery of the Rockies and the Selkirks. One remembers him at work in Tonquin Valley and at the site of old Glacier House, but we are here introduced to the larger panorama of his work in Canada, particularly in the canoe country of Muskoka, Nipigon and Lake Superior.
