"City Seen is a picture book. St. John's has drawn strong and varied responses from writers over the years of its evolution from fishery station to provincial capital. They range from Morris, the distinguished contemporary Welsh travel writer, back to the great British naturalist, Sir Joseph Banks, here in 1766. He famously described St. John's as 'for dirt & filth of all Kinds ...unrivalld'. So too the city has drawn attention from visual artists. However, perhaps surprisingly, this is the first book to bring together a selection of artists' images of St. John's made over a span of more than 200 years." ~ from the introduction by Patricia Grattan.
