The Historical Atlas of Prince Edward Island presents history from the vantage point of the artists and map-makers who depicted the people, places and events of the Island in visual and graphic form. The book is heavily illustrated with full-colour maps, paintings, drawings and other illustrative material depicting culture, countryside and events.

Using carefully selected antique maps, engravings, watercolours and images drawn from museum, archive and private collections, The Historical Atlas of Prince Edward Island provides a rich, illustrated history of the province, a record of "the ways we saw ourselves then."
