Lande has published a number of volumes of verse, as well as a study of early Canadian poetry, Old Lamps Aglow (1957). He also composes music. He has assembled and described major collections of Canadiana, now housed at McGill, Université de Montréal, the Public Archives of Canada and the National Library of Canada, and has published historical studies. Lande has also bestowed his collection of works by William Blake on McGill.
