You are talking about this book:
261.  POULIN, Joseph-Philippe. «Troisième Centenaire de la Famille Poulin au Canada, 1639-1939». Québec, 1939. 253 p. (23 cm). Non découpé, à l’état neuf. Illustrations.    65 $ (bought previously from Quintin)

It shows up once in a while for sale by used book vendors in the Province of Quebec.

It is easy reading, with great detail in parts. The author was an "instituteur," to me an elementary school teacher, who did excellent and extensive research to support his four or five publications. It deals with the three Poulin pioneers, but necessarily mostly with the descendants of Claude. If you want to flesh out details on your line, once already known, you may find interesting details. The title is misleading, reflecting its publication for a grand reunion in 1939, but dealing with family history and names only to the late 1800s. Also, the arrangement is unusual and difficult to follow. Most of its 30 chapters feature clusters of Poulin names in various geographic regions. Tracing backwards from a known name is difficult. For straight tracking from the mid-1900s it is better to use other available sources: the Drouin "blue" books, available via Ancestry.com and in microfiche from the AFGS, and then Talbot along with Tanguay, plus all the various marriage indices taken from parish records.
