He also produced learned and well-researched non-fiction books, including important historical works on his beloved home of Canada and reviews of literary figures. For the first time in publishing history, this eBook presents Leacock’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
