Product description

The Royal Canadian Tour: The Complete Pictorial Story - Stanley Devon (c.1951-52)
 
An original early 1950s vintage hardback commemorative book, issued to mark the 1951 Royal Tour of Canada, with its original colour pictorial dustwrapper: "From the moment T.R.H. The Princess Elizabeth [the present Queen Elizabeth II] and The Duke of Edinburgh set foot on Canadian soil [on 8th October 1951] until they made their departure five weeks later, Stanley Devon - ace camera-man of the Daily Graphic, and one of the world's best known press photographers - was taking pictures of the memorable scenes, ceremonies and celebrations that have added a new, glorious chapter to Royal history ... The cream of Stanley Devon's photographs appears in this volume and, with them, his own vividly-told experiences as the only photographer from Britain to accompany the Royal Party."
 
Although the volume shows various signs of age (see condition description below), it remains complete and fully legible, and would make a lovely addition to a collection of British royal memorabilia or books of Canadian interest.
