A well-written & pleasant memoir of medical practice in NovaScotia. New Waterford, Canso, the Nova Scotia Hospital, Little Brook, near Digby. During times of financial worry in New Waterford, Brassett and his new wife developed an admirable biblio-salve: "When things got very bad we used a special technique. We would read together Cherry-Garrard's The WorstJourney in the World. At once we were transported down to the Antarctic wi th Scott on his last expedition. There we were in a tent, a blizzard howling around us, the temperature fifty degrees below zero, nothing to eat but alittle dog-meat, and the paraffin in our Primus stove running low - separa ted from home and civilization by hundreds of miles of dead, barren ice andsnow. From our tent down in the Antarctic we could see things like banks a nd debts and so on in their true perspective. If any reader has worries I recommend that he get a copy of Cherry-Garrard's book, if he can find one. Our copy is dog-eared and worn." p.101. (See also 126 & 127).

"Bromley’s Royal Acadian School, which opened in Halifax in 1813–14, represented an important departure in education for the colonies. It was non-sectarian and, like the local bible society, drew as its supporters a cross-section of local society comprised of liberal-minded elements both inside and outside the Church of England. Although the aim of the school was to attack illiteracy, encourage morality, and promote industry, it also challenged the existing notions of privilege and authority in society. The controversy inspired by Anglican opposition to its establishment one of the school’s leading critics was Judge Alexander Croke – would have daunted a lesser mortal than Bromley. Instead, acting as both teacher and administrator, he thrived on the publicity his efforts aroused. The opponents of denominational privilege, led by Thomas McCulloch, rallied to his side. His school also benefited from being in the right place at the right time and proved to be an important social experiment. It combined under one roof inexpensive education for the children of the emergent middle class, free education for the children of the poor during the serious depression that followed the Napoleonic Wars, and a workshop for the unemployed at a time when local society had not yet begun to cope with the relief of the able-bodied poor."

["Despite constant financial uncertainties, the school continued to attract the patronage of the city’s élite and a clientele of shopkeepers and artisans whose children’s educational prospects were extremely precarious in a town without public schooling. Because it was neither a charity school nor a private school, Bromley’s institution represented the inauguration of a middle way in education much needed by the town’s nascent bourgeoisie. The Royal Acadian School was one of the first institutions of colonial society in which middle-class self-interest and the interests of an increasingly middle-class society could be combined. Here charity pupils – black and immigrant – and fee-paying pupils –the sons and daughters of rising Halifax families (both Protestant and Cat holic) – were put through their paces in the three Rs, religion, and vocational training. Parents relished the opportunity to secure a modestly priced education for their children, and for the pupils the Royal Acadian School provided an invaluable start in life." - from Judith Fingard's Dictionary of Canadian Biography entry on Bromley (VII:107-110).

See also Fingard's "English Humanitarianism and the Colonial Mind : Walter Bromley in Nova Scotia, 1813-1825," in The Canadian Historical Review, Vol.LIV, No.2, June 1973. Pp 123-151 with a mention of this work along with The English Grammar Made Easy [...] as "the extant manuals" published for the students of the school(footnote 44, pp.132-3).

A sample from the Nova Scotia section:
Q. What are the inhabitants of Nova Scotia? A. The inhabitants are a mixture of English, Scotch, Irish, Welch, Dutch, Germans, French, and a considerable numberof Emigrants from the United States of America; also some native Indians; and emancipated negroes brought from the United States of America during the late war: these last reside near Halifax, and appear very poor and miserable.

Q. What Seminaries of learning have been established in Nova Scotia? A. There are in Halifax a Grammar School, the National or Madras School, the Acadian or Lancastrian School, the Catholic School, and the Dalhousie Coll ege; the latter unfinished. Besides these, in rural situations, there are King's College and its Academy, at Windsor, and the Pictou Academy.

Q. What is the disposition of the Indians? A. The Indians of Nova Scotia, called Micmac, are harmless unless provoked, and their honesty is proverbial. They are of the middle stature, faces broad, aquiline nose, coarse black hair, and complexion nearly of a copper colour. Their covering is a blue frock or coat, with a girdle tied round the waist, with trowsers of the same for the men; and a blanket with a blue cloth petticoat, and a cap resembling a sugar-loaf, ornamented with beads, generally compose the dress of the women.

Q. What are their habits? A. The men are by no means so dissipated in their habits as some prejudiced or uninformed Authors have represented them; and while it must be admitted that there are many confirmed drunkards in the neighbourhood of Halifax, yet it is also certain, that there still exists a considerable proportion of sober, intelligent characters in various parts of the country, who are by no means averse to agricultural pursuits, as has been recently proved by actual experiment. ---------

Front cover missing, rear cover rubbed, smudged, and chipped, spine browned and starting to peel from the upper portion of the volume, edges browned with occasional smudging to text, else very good. Inside rear cover has the penned note "Elizabeth Liddells[illegible]" and the initials EL are also penned at the head of the title page.

BROWN, Douglas Arthur. The Komodo Dragon and Other Stories. Sydney, N.S.: Cape Breton University Press, (2006). First Edition. Pp (2),[1]-157,(3). 8vo, illustrated blue card covers. "The diversity of theme, voice and setting in the nine stories that make up Douglas Arthur Brown's collection, show his versatility as a writer of fiction. Brown's edgy treatment of cultural difference, forgiveness, marriage, infidelity, moral/ethical issues, myth anddeath is sometimes poignant, sometimes disturbing. From the woman and man pursuing love in foreign lands, to boys navigating the rough terrain of family life and friendship, Brown's characters take us beyond the boundaries of regional literature - from Glace Bay to Toronto, Denmark, Italy, Macedonia and China. These widely divergent stories are nonetheless unified by a single theme: the universal human need for connection with other human beings." - from the dj. Douglas Arthur Brown lived in Toronto and Copenhagen for twenty years and now resides of Cape Breton Island where he was born. Very good. 12.00
