Newly Published: Statistics on Québec Publishing in 2012

Does the rise of e-books have an impact on the publishing industry in Québec? How many books are published each year? What are their average print run and price?

BAnQ just published Statistiques de l'édition au Québec en 2012, (in French only) which provides a picture of the Québec publishing world. The statistics are drawn from information collected during the legal deposit of print publications with BAnQ. Illustrated with numerous charts, this digital document is an invaluable tool for anyone searching for precise data on print publishing.

BAnQ Gets Ahold of an Exceptional Early Book Through a Donation

BAnQ has recently added to its collection of early books the original edition of Description de la Louisiane, an account of an exploratory journey of New France published in 1963. Acquired through a donation from Fondation de BAnQ, this outstanding work by missionary Louis Hennepin, a best-selling book in its time, is the first document in which the name Louisiane is mentioned. Its descriptions of faraway and up-to-then unknown lands, and of American Indian customs, fascinated European readers and renewed interest in the discovery of the New World.

On the photo, Christiane Barbe, BAnQ Chair and Chief Executive Officer, presents the newly-acquired book to Louis Vachon, President of the Fondation de BAnQ Capital Campaign.
