NotesLikely produced in Montréal, this bookplate from the Bibliothèque de l'école Polytechnique de Montréal is similar to another bookplate housed in McGill's Phillipe Mason Ex Libris Collection which is also printed in black ink on pink paper, but differs in orientation (landscape as opposed to portrait) and has a different border and text. L'école Polytechnique de Montréal was officially founded in 1876 though the first sessions of the school began in 1874 with a series of lectures and seven students. It was the first engineering school in Québec and through the 19th and 20th centuries remained the largest engineering school in the province. In 1887 l'école Polytechnique de Montréal became incorporated into Laval University and in 1895 a provincial charter awarded the school independent financial and administrative status which it maintained through its subsequent affiliation with the University of Montréal in 1920. L'école Polytechnique de Montréal moved onto the University of Montréal campus on the northern face of Mount Royal in 1958 and as of 2010 is comprised of four main buildings: l'école Polytechnique de Montréal building, the Pierre Lassonde and Claudette Mackay Lassonde buildings, the J. Armand Bombardier Building, and the André Aisenstadt Building. The school offers programs at the certificate, undergraduate, and graduate levels, with a very strong focus on the applied sciences, including degree programs in engineering. The library is located in the Pierre Lassonde and Claudette Mackay Lassonde buildings and its collection specializes in applied science and technology.
