Opening the Gates of Eighteenth-Century Montréal

Publication, 8 September 1992

Opening the Gates of Eighteenth-Century Montréal considers the building of the eighteenth-century military and commercial town of Montréal, the nucleus from which the present city grew. Based on a fifteen-year study of manuscript sources from Europe and North America, the book focuses on the interrelationships of three key elements of Montréal’s urban form: the fortifications, the ownership, distribution, and use of property within its walls, and the nature of its buildings.

Edited by Phyllis Lambert and Alan Stewart. Essays by André Charbonneau, Marc Lafrance, Phyllis Lambert, Monique Poirier, and Alan Stewart.

Softcover, 95 pages. English and French editions.
