Tills work has been prepared by the Canadian Institute for the members of the Twelfth Geological Congress and for all who may have an interest in the history and natural history of the city and vicinity. The articles have been generously contributed by specialists in their respective fields, and represent more than mere compilations. The maps and illustrations have either been prepared for this book or are reproduced here from original sources by permission. Credit is given in connection with each. To the contributors, the publishers, and to the many friends who have so freely aided with information or advice, the members of the publication committee desire to express their sincere indebtedness.
