Recensement du Canada 1870-71

"The Census of 1870-81, the first since the passing of the British North American Act, was taken under the authority of the 'Census Act' assented to on the 12th May, 1870 (33 Victoria, Chapter XXI). The publication of the results of this extensive work is accompanied with comparative statements abstracted from reports of former censuses, and from other statistical resources, after the manner followed in older countries. ... The edition will consist of five volumes in which is compressed a mass of information more than three times as much as was contained in the reports of the Censuses of 1861 for the same four Provinces ... Each volume will contain remarks referring to the tabular matter therein published, and each will be furnished with indexes and explanations necessary to facilitate reference thereto"--Introd., v. 1.
