Circus posters, exhibition notices, and farm land auction broadsides are just a few of the items in this marvelous collection from the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library at the University of Toronto. This site provides access to over 590 broadsides and 2,600 pamphlet titles which amounts to over 71,500 page images. Visitors will find that the collection contains items printed in Canada, by Canadian authors, or about Canadian subjects. Users can search the collection by language, author, and keyword. Of course, browsing around by subject is encouraged as well. It is worth looking at some of the items under "tariff" as they relate part of Canada's relationship with Great Britain and other countries. Additionally, there is some compelling material about the Church of England as well.
