LEGGET, Robert. Ottawa River Canals: and the Defence of British North America. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (1988). First Edition. Pp (12),[1]-308. Illustrations, tables, maps in the text. 8vo, blue cloth, silver lettering to spine. From the author of Rideau Waterway, an examination of thecanals constructed by the Royal Staff Corps of the British army between Ki ngston and Montreal in the years following the War of 1812. The book tracesthe subsequent fate of these canals up to the 1960s. "Three small canals w ith locks were built from 1819 to 1834 between Carillon and Grenville, Quebec, by the Royal Staff Corps of the British army. Their purpose was to provide a navigable waterway on the Ottawa River around the Long Sault and associated rapids, which had a total drop of about sixty feet. The canals constituted a vital part of a military route between Montreal and Kingston, wellnorth of the US border - a need recognized following the War of 1812. The rest of that route - the better known Rideau Canal - could not be used until these were built. The Ottawa River canals were in constant use, every summer, for over 120 years. Long after their original defensive function became obsolete they were used in commercial shipping and later by pleasure craft. In 1963 the canals were replaced by an electrically operated liftlock inthe Carillon Dam of Hydro-Québec.Robert Legget describes the historical ba ckground, construction, operation, and reconstruction of the canals." - from the dj.

125 LEGGET, Robert Ottawa Waterway : Gateway to a Continent. First Edition in dustjacket, Signed
University of Toronto Press, Toronto and Buffalo, 1975, 
LEGGET, Robert. Ottawa Waterway : Gateway to a Continent. Toronto and Buffalo : University of Toronto Press, (1975). First Edition. Pp (9),x-xi, (3),[3]-291, (1). Illustrated. Maps. 8vo, navy cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Robert Ferguson Legget (b. September 29, 1904, Liverpool, England - d. April17, 1994, Ottawa, Ontario). "The mighty river that flows through the capit al of Canada was called the 'Grand River of the North' by the first French explorers, before they even knew of the existence of the Great Lakes which are part of the St Lawrence waterway today. The Ottawa is still a great river, despite the changes made by man, and contributes on a vast scale to theindustry, commerce, and amenities of the region. In this book, Robert Legg et tells how the river basin was formed geologically in prehistoric times, and how it has been used by explorers, missionaries, fur traders, lumbermen, settlers, travellers, and industry for more than 250 years. He describes the river as it appeared, with its spectacular rapids, waterfalls, and gorges, to those who voyaged on it in birchbark canoes (very often reproducing these vivid and picturesque accounts), and the major role it played in the development of the fur trade.Then came the heyday of the timber industry, when huge rafts of logs cut from the forests bordering tributary streams were floated downriver to Montreal. Dr Legget describes the building of early canals and the great days of steamboating, when one luxurious vessel could carry a thousand passengers up the river to the capital, Famous pioneer personalities are brought to life, and curious and fascinating incidents are related , including Royal visits by water. He brings the story up to date byshowing how the river has been turned to the use and convenience ot man by vast power developments, and concludes by taking the reader on a tour ot t he river today, indicating the best sites for viewing the scenery and how these may be reached by road, ferry, and rail." from the dj 1.

126 LEGGET, Robert Rideau Waterway. First Edition in dustjacket, Signed
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1960, 
LEGGET, Robert. Rideau Waterway. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, 1955. First Edition. Pp. (6),[vii]-xiv,(2),[3]-249,(1). With [16] pp. of plates. 8vo, brown cloth, silver titles to spine, maps to the endpapers. Robert Ferguson Legget (b. September 29, 1904, Liverpool, England - d. April 17, 1994, Ottawa, Ontario). The book tells the history and many difficulties encountered when building the canal, as well as describing many of the locks, towns, lakes, rivers and islands located along the Waterway, which connectsthe cities of Kingston and Ottawa. "The beautiful chain of lakes and strea ms that forms the Rideau Waterway of Ontario is one of Canada's favourite playgrounds. Yearly it is visited by thousands of vacationing tourists from all parts of Canada and the United States. A pleasure craft which has reached the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario through the connecting inland waterways of the continent can pass from the city ot Kingston through the lovely Ontario countryside to the heart of Ottawa, the capital of Canada. One may, in fact, disembark a stone's throw from the nation's Parliament Buildings, and practically at the steps of the Chateau Laurier. To the fisherman,seeking richer waters "higher up," the locks are a convenient and pictures que means of passing from one enticing sheet of water to another; to the amateur photographer, the locks and dams are quaint and delightful subjects for his pictures; to the young, a mechanical marvel whose fascination never fails. But these waterways, now devoted solely to the enjoyment of the people of two friendly nation- neighbours, were planned in a time of stress, and built in the shadow of war. British engineers and Canadian contractors fought with the wilderness, driven by the spectre of a renewal of war with the United States, which might cut off communications by the St. Lawrence route. Fortunately the route was never needed for defence, but over the years it helped in the opening of Ontario for settlement and bore a varied freight of such things as lumber, coal, and cheese for communities between Kingston and the Ottawa River. Its commercial life is now over, and a delightful vacation-land remains. This book tells of the adventure of building the canal by soldiers and civilian labourers through rough bush, swamps, and rockywilderness, a magnificent piece of engineering over a route full of proble ms. It tells of the career and character of its ingenious Superintending Engineer, Colonel John By, whose achievement was clouded over in the haze of debate in the British government and Press concerning financial problems, although his record ultimately stood up to all examination. It describes allthe spots of interest - locks, towns and villages, lakes, rivers, and isla nds, along the Waterway - with stories of the pioneers who settled in this part of the country. The final chapters describe the growth of Bytown into Ottawa, of a construction camp into a regal city, showing how the story of Canada's capital is closely linked with that of the canal at whose head it stands." from the dj.

Maps. 8vo, brown cloth, black lettering to spine.“Lourie completed his trip. It took him three weeks and marked the first t ime anyone has traveled from the source of the Hudson to the mouth in a single vessel. The Hudson proved to be a very changeable river. It includes seven locks and nine power dams. The northern half is a true river with strong current, but the lower half is tidal, a sunken river from the days of glaciers. In its first 165 miles, it drops more than 4,000 feet to Albany. Thesecond half falls no more than a foot. Lourie's account of his trip is a f resh look at one of America's great and complex waterways, one of the few, in fact, that still contains its historical and biological species of fish.It is also the longest inland estuary in the world. Henry Hudson called it the "great river of the mountains." Nowadays, too often the Hudson is ster eotyped as a ruined, polluted industrial river. its glorious past is compared to its present neglect. In River of Mountains, Peter Lourie combines theHudson's rich history and descriptions of some of the region's most impres sive landscape with the residents of its mill towns, the loggers, commercial fishermen, and barge pilots - all of whom are proof that the river is still a thriving, vital waterway.” - from the dj.
