University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 2009, ISBN:9780802044655 
CADIGAN, Sean T. Newfoundland and Labrador : A History. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (2009). First Edition. Pp [i]-viii,(6,maps),[1]-363,(7),+ 16 pp photos. 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering to front cover and spine. "Although the inclusion of Newfoundland and Labrador as part of Confederation is of national significance, it represents only a small portion of the province's past. Sean Cadigan ha written a definitive history of one of North America's most distinct and beautiful regions. The site of the continent's first European settlement one thousand years ago and a former colony of England, this easternmost point of the continent has had a fascinating history in part because of is position as the gateway between North America and Europe. Examining the region from prehistoric times to the present, 'Newfoundland and Labrador' is not only a comprehensive history of the province, but an illuminating portrait of the Atlantic world and of the European colonization of the Americas. The book traces the major developments in the region's history, from the first European settlemetns, the extinction of the indigenous Beothuk by European settlers, the conflicts between settlers and the imperial government, to the Royal Newfoundland Regiment's near annihilation at the Battle of the Somme, the rise of Newfoundland nationalism, Joey Smallwood's case for confederation, and the economic disappointments that resulted after Confederation. Paying particular attention to the ways inwhich Newfoundland and Labrador's history has been shaped by its environme nt, this study considers how natural resources suhc as the Grand Banks, thecod fishery, and off-shore oil have affected the region and its inhabitant s." - from the introductory preamble.

While many papers have been written on the social and economic effects the Americans had on the people of Newfoundland and Labrador, this is the first factual story of fifty years ofchange in Newfoundland's history.

One of 15 Large Paper Copies. O'Dea 245a, Cooke & Caron p.82, TPL 586, Davidson 139, Sabin 11150. "[...] it is clear from thelist of subscribers' names prefixed to volume one, that the size of the ed ition had been reduced from a thousand to 350 copies, [...]. Of the total number of copies printed, fifteen were run off as special large-paper copiesfavoured by bibliophiles, and these are now exceedingly rare and valuable items." - George Story's "Old Labrador: George Cartwright 1738-1819: A Lecture delivered to The Newfoundland Historical Society, Thursday, 9 October 1980". "This journal is written with care and fidelity; the style of the author is plain and manly; he delivers his sentiments with freedom, and with confidence, asserts only those circumstances which, from his own observations, he knows to be facts. [...] Coleridge highly recommended the work." - quoted in Maggs' Catalogue 678, in loc. "The annals of his campaigns among the foxes and beavers, interested me more than ever did the exploits of Marleborough [sic] or Frederick; besides I saw plain truth and the heart of Cartwright's book." - Coleridge, cited in Lande, (although it appears rather tohave been Robert Southey, according to G.M.Story, in his DCB article). It would be interesting to know how such a book came to be printed in Newark, a small borough town in Nottinghamshire. Despite Cartwright's connection with the town, one would have expected a London imprint for such a large project. John Feather's The English Provincial Book Trade before 1850, (Oxford,1981) has provided two possible sources: Thomas M. Blagg's Newark as a Pub lishing Town, (Newark, 1898) and John Walton's A Survey of the Printing Trade and Related Occupations in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire to 1900, (Library Association Fellowship thesis, 1968). So far the only notice we have found for the printer is the following: "1795, Jan. 4 Died, William Allen [sic], an eminent bookseller at Newark, in Nottinghamshire, aged sixty-two years" in C.H.Timperley's Encyclopaedia of Literary and Typographical Anecdote, (L., 1842), p.785. Vol. I: Lacks the original portrait frontispiece, as well as the map of "Northern and Middle States...and the British Dominions",but full-sized photocopies of these two on good paper have been obtained a nd laid-in. Both of the maps in Vol. I have a single four inch mended tear.Spine cracked at pp. 120/121, 3" tear to margin of pp. 7 - 8, 1" tear to m argin of pp. 21 - 22; pp. 121 - 128 and 205 - 217 are considerable foxed, extreme edges of last leaf showing some adherence of marbling from earlier binding, edges (especially where untrimmed) are darkened, otherwise very clean. Vol. II: Fore-edge of title page spotted (and extreme edges showing some adhering of marbling from earlier binding), two leaves loose (pp. 43 - 46), occasional light foxing (and small stained area affecting text of p. 173), edges (especially where untrimmed) are darkened, otherwise very clean throughout. Vol. III: Two leaves (pp. 3 - 6) loose, extreme top and fore-edgeof title page (and fore-edge of last leaf) show some adhering of marbling from earlier binding, some soiling to p. 169, some damp-staining to p. 222,edges (especially where untrimmed) are darkened, otherwise very clean thro ughout.

Casselman sets the gastric juices flowing and help s us savour the etymological flavour of our hearty Canadian fare as well. "The gastromonic grand tour begins in Newfoundland after a Jigg's dinner with scrunchins, washed down with a stain o' rum, and then we light out for the West Coast to lap up a foaming bowl of soapahollie ice cream. Along the way there are stops and mug-ups for Maritime fungy and bangbelly, bakeapple jam and blueberry grunt, fricko on PEI, rappie pie in New Brunswick, drepsley soup in Southern Ontario, bannock in Manitoba, Saskatoonberry turnovers along the Qu-Appelle River, backed wind pills in Alberta, and moose-muffle soup in Tuktoyaktuk. "Foodies and word buffs alike will enjoy this book, written as it is in true Casselman form - scholarly, entertaining, and often hilarious" - rear cover.
