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. He notes, “All of these pamphlets are rare.”
This eighth edition includes the printed Tariff and Schedule for the season beginning 1 June 1941 (4 pp.), loosely inserted.
