James Harvey McNairn [1837-1927] of Toronto, Canada, authored a book entitled: "The Apocaplypse: A Dissertation Thereon". 

It is available on Amazon at considerable cost.  And I think also 'The Book Depository'.

Somebody tried to leave the comment below a few days ago. I don't know who it was but thanks for the note. (I think it failed as tehre was no name in the name box).


Short bio note by [family member] Judi McNairn:
He [James Harvey McNairn] was born at Dickinson's Landing [Ontario], attended school there and in Cornwall, became a store clerk at 13, railway telegrapher, freight agent, and station master.  He moved to Toronto and founded the first waxed paper business in Canada.  Owned a paper mill at Dansville, New York.  All of his children died young except the youngest.  He was a member of the Plymouth Brethren.  His daughter-in-law said, "To enter their home was a benediction."  Was a telegraph operator, station master, and Chief freight master with the railroad in Toronto.  Also, according to the family group sheets from Morrisburg, he was in the Toronto paper business, a clerk 1852.  McNairn Packaging had its origin in 1882 when James Harvey McNairn established what we understand to be the first waxed paper manufacturing company in the world that utilized roll-to-roll coating machinery.  During more than one hundred years of private ownership the Company's product range and manufacturing facilities have continually expanded and adapted to the needs of the changing markets we serve.  Our current manufacturing facilities are located in Westfield Massachusetts, U.S.A. and in Whitby Ontario, Canada respectively.  We are strategically located being well served by road and rail links to the North American market and enjoy the benefits of a well educated labour force.
