Mapping North America: Early Modern Narratives of Discovery and Exploration in the Davidson Collection

9 January to 8 February

An exhibition that features books published before 1800 which have a visual component (maps, portraits, architectural plans, depictions of flora and fauna, printing ornaments, manuscript diagrams, etc.). Forming part of the Edgar and Dorothy Davidson Collection of Canadiana held by Mount Allison University, these rare books constitute an eclectic mix of travel narratives and historical accounts—dictionaries, histories, journals, letters, records, and voyages through which readers and viewers can witness the early modern discovery, exploration, and settlement of North America, and in particular Canada. 

Curated by Lauren Beck and Christina Ionescu and produced with support from Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the Marjorie Young Bell Fine Arts Fund, and the Centre for Canadian Studies at Mount Allison University.
