106 BASKERVILLE, Peter and Eric W. SAGER SAGER, Eric W. Unwilling Idlers : The Urban Unemployed and Their Families in Late Victorian Canada. pbk.
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1998, ISBN:0802081444 
BASKERVILLE, Peter and Eric W. SAGER. Unwilling Idlers : The Urban Unemployed and Their Families in Late Victorian Canada . Toronto: University of Toronto Press, (1998). Pp. (8),[ix]-xiv,(6) of plates,[1]-294. 8vo, illustrated brown card covers with black spine. "Unemployment has a long history in Canada. Joblessness was part of working-class experience long before the Depression of the 1930s. Until the late nineteenth century it lacked official recognition and even a name of its own. Yet the problem was pervasive. Unemployment helps to explain inequalities, both within the working class and between classes. It makes sense of the mobility of workers: the migration ofyoung people in Quebec to towns and cities and to the United States, the o ut-migration from the Maritime Provinces, and the movement of thousands every year from city to hinterland and back again. Unemployment deepend the division of labour within households and thereby exacerbated gender distinctions. It was part of the recurring conflict between workers and employers. It helps to explain the opposition to immigration and the virulent hostilitytowards certain ethnic and racial groups that emerged in the late nineteen th century. Unemployment can help us to understand the growth of urban charities and of social-reform movements in the cities. By the 1880s and 1890s unemployment was no longer latent; it had become a pervasive condition of class relations in urban Canada." - from the rear cover. With much Nova Scotia-related material throughout. Very good. 15.00

Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated redand white card covers. "At the age of 18, Tappan Adney embarked onhis firs t trip to Canada. He had plans to return to New York in the fall, but fate intervened -- he fell under the spell of the New Brunswick wilderness and the Maliseet people. Nothing escaped Adney's attention. He recorded the details of snowshoes and birchbark canoes and the Native names for birds and animals. He chronicled a caribou hunt on snowshoes, decades before woodland caribou became extinct in eastern Canada. In the journals, he recorded his travels from New York to New Brunswick, Quebec, and Nova Scotia. 'The TravelJournals of Tappan Adney, 1887-1890', is the first published version of Ad ney's first two journals. He would write three more before 1896. Retaining the authenticity of Adney's writing, this volume preserves the language of the day and spellings of names and places. It also includes reproductions of Adney's original sketches and a few early photographs." - from rear. Verygood. Due to its small size, shipping charges should be a bit cheaper than quoted. 10.00
