141 ROBERTSON, Marion Old Settlers' Remedies. 7th Lancelot Printing
Lancelot Press, Hantsport , 1982, 
ROBERTSON, Marion. Old Settlers' Remedies. Compiled by Marion Robertson forthe Cape Sable Historical Society, Barrington, N.S. Hantsport, Nova Scotia : Lancelot Press, (1982). Seventh Printing. Pp [1]-34,(2). 8vo, card cover s. Marion Robertson (née Doane), (b. 1910, Massachusetts - d. October 3, 1998) teacher, researcher, folklorist, author, long-time resident of Shelburne. "In compiling these home remedies of our pioneer forefathers, I have used two old remedy books which belonged to early settlers ol Shelburne County, and a reprint of Thomas Phaire's "The Boke of Chyldren", first published in London in 1553. Other printed sources were an old Cook Book with "Various Receipts and Directions to Servants," and a Nova Scotia Almanack of 1820.Besides these, I have used a number of remedies written by the early settl ers themselves in little leather-bound note books or on the blank pages of books. Still others are from a Family Bible written there by an unhappy mother after she had lost two of her children because she knew no way to save them. Although these old remedies were used by our early settlers, and wereall that they had, they are not recommended to-day as cures for aches or p ains of any kind. In arranging the remedies I have followed the way of JohnWesley in his book of "Primitive Physic," [...].' - from the foreword. A f acsinating look at cures and preventions, covering ague, apoplexy, arthritis, asthma, baldness, boils, blisters, burns, cancer, chafing, chilblains, colds, consumption, coughs, deafness, dropsy, dull sight, falling of the fundament, flux, gout, the green sickness, jaundice, lunacy, the plague, the quinsy, rheumatism, ruptures, sciatica, scurvy, shingles, small pox, sharp urine, worms, wounds, and many more. Faint stain to spine, else very good. Due to its small size, shipping costs will be cheaper than quoted. 7.00
