The map of Canada offers to the eye and to the imagination a vast country more than three thousand miles in
width. Its eastern face presents a broken outline to the wild surges of the Atlantic. Its western coast commands
from majestic heights the broad bosom of the Pacific. Along its southern boundary is a fertile country of lake
and plain and woodland, loud already with the murmur of a rising industry, and in summer waving with the

The object of this volume is to give a succinct idea of the nature and history of our Ontario School

without some understanding of its history previous to the time of Ryerson. I have, therefore, devoted three
chapters to a brief account of education in Upper Canada previous to 1844.
