Anticosti, “the treasure island of the Saint Lawrence,” was maintained as a private hunting preserve by French chocolate manufacturer Henri Menier from 1896 until 1926. It was bought by a Canadian paper consortium and this brochure is evidence of their efforts to attract fishermen. It is well illustrated and includes selections from a fictional fishing diary as well as fish catches for 1934, 1935, and 1936. Wood describes a fifth edition, circa 1936. He notes, “All of these pamphlets are rare.”.
