During the Summer of 2008, Rare Books and Special Collections, McGill University Library, celebrated the 400th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain with an exhibition titled "Champlain Revisited". The exhibition included Champlain's original published voyages and other documents, which contain valuable iconographic and cartographic information about early New France.

This exhibition also highlighted the Tercentenary celebrations of 1908, which were a magnificent testimony of Canada's gratitude to those figures who contributed to its history. A lasting reminder of these 300th anniversary celebrations is to be found in the documents and colourful special supplements, souvenir booklets, albums and post cards that were on display.

The McGill University Library is now pleased to make "Champlain Revisited" available as virtual exhibition.
