Untangling the history of various trades and industries requires a keen eye and a great deal of patience. Some of these fields have a wide range of trade publications, and the Canadian Printer and Publishers periodical is a fine source of information about the development and growth of this industry during the late 19th and early 20th century. The talented folks at the University of Toronto's Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library have digitized the volumes of this publication dating from 1892 to 1911. Visitors can dive right in by clicking on the "Search/Browse the collection" area on the homepage. This link leads to a detailed search engine and an area where they can browse through each issue at their leisure. Also, visitors have the option to view thumbnail document images in their search results. The breadth of material here is tremendous, and visitors will find discussion of legal issues in the industry, biographies of leading figures and firms, and articles on the more practical aspects of the printing and publishing industry during this period.
