Sewn in wrappers; 26 pp. Light soiling and creasing. The meeting was Chaired by the Hon. Sir Charles Tupper, later Primer Minister of Canada (1896). Cross was the Late Secretary to the Canadian Commission at the Exhibition of the Colonies and India and here reported on his observations of that 1886 gathering. “Long before the year 1886 it had been felt by thoughtful minds, both in Great Britain and throughout her vast and scattered dependencies, that if the Empire were ever to do justice to itself, something should be done to remove the ignorance prevailing in every constituent part of it concerning every other part. This ignorance has all along been mutual, but the mother country being concerned in knowing something about every individual dependency, her ignorance has been most reprehensible and the most disastrous.” In historical context, an important document, and very telling of the Canadian insight into, and perspective upon, ‘The Empire’, twenty years after Confederation. Scarce.
