William W Williamson (1833-1926) was born in Peterhead, Scotland and came to Port Hope from Smith's Falls, Ontario
in 1875. He ran a book store on Walton Street that was later carried on by his son William Clark Williamson (1858-1956).
William Sr published many little books over the years, including this volume in honour of Joseph Scriven.
The book is reproduced here approximately life-size. Thanks to Neil and Brenda (Jackson) Manley.
