188 BUMSTED, J.M. Land, Settlement, and Politics on Eighteenth-Century Prince Edward Island. First Edition in dustjacket
McGill-Queen's University Press, Kingston / Montreal, 1987, ISBN:0773505660 
BUMSTED, J.M. Land, Settlement, and Politics on Eighteenth-Century Prince Edward Island. Kingston / Montreal : McGill-Queen's University Press, (1987). First Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-xii,(4),[3]-238. With several maps in the text. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. John "Jack" Michael Bumsted (b. December 12, 1938., White Plains, New York) Canadian scholar and author. "Soon after Prince Edward Island was transferred from French to British sovereignty in 1763, virtualy the entire island was turned over to private proprietors on the understanding that they would finance both settlement and the administration of the territory. Although the proprietors did not fulfiltheir obligations, they clung tenaciously to their privileges, ultimately becoming an anachronistic group of landlords on a North American continent where freehold tenure was the norm. In this study, J.M. Bumsted goes beyondthe previous "heroes" (residents) and "villains" (landlords) approach of m uch of Island historiography by demonstrating the intimate interweaving of the issues of land, politics and settlement. In contrast to most previous works on the subject, this is not a local or regional history, but a book incolonial and imperial history that focuses on Prince Edward Island. n cont rast to most previous works on the subject, this is not a local or regionalhistory, but a book in colonial and imperial history that focuses on Princ e Edward Island. This broader perspective allows Bumsted to show, for example, that the decision to distribute land to proprietors was a comprehensible and even liberal move by British government in the context of the imperial expansion of the 1760s. Bumsted demonstrates that the external influence of the American Revolution is more important than had been thought, both inisolating the Island from Britain and, through the handling of Loyalist im migrants, in exacerbating the conflicts over land ownership. Previously, Prince Edward Island's crucial formative period from 1763 to the end of the eighteenth century has not received sufficient attention, while the proprietorial system had received too much attention without sufficient critical analysis. Land, Settlement, and Politics on Eighteenth-Century Prince Edward isalnd redresses the balance. An important time period is clearly too simple a model to explain the developments of this era. Bumsted provides much fascinating new material. based largely on his discovery of significant documentary sources, particularly in Scotland." - from the dj. Preface; Prologue: The French Regime; 1.

Pp 409-473,(1), frontispiece portrait + 1 plate. Index. 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Shortly before his death Sir Robert Weatherbe wrote the present writer that he had in his possession a series ofleters addressed by Joseph Howe to William J. Stairs, relating to the Anti -Confederation Movement. He thought of editing these letters, and asked advice as to the most suitable means of publication. It was suggested that they might be submitted as a paper to The Royal Society, and published in the Transactions. Unfortunately Sir Robert Weatherbe did not live to carry out his idea. As one who had been Joint Secretary of the League of the MaritimeProvinces, of which Howe was President and Stairs one of the Vice-Presiden ts, and who had been on terms of intimacy with all the principal actors in the Anti-Confederation Movement, he would have been an ideal editor of sucha series of letters. The present writer, with Lady Weatherbe's consent, un dertook the task. Although conscious enough that at best he could offer only a very poor substitute for the paper Sir Robert Weatherbe would have produced, be felt that these letters of Joseph Howe were too important to remain in obscurity, particularly at a time when Canadians were preparing to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the birth of the Dominion. In the notes appended to the letters an ettort has been made to identify names and incidents that were more familiar to Howe's contemporaries than they are to Canadians of the present generation."

(6),7-251,(5). 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "What does it mean to be a Westerner? What is the Western experience and, by extension, what makes up the Western soul? In Lilac Moon, Sharon Butala challenges and inspiresus to think about the West in fresh ways. She begins by transporting us to her Saskatchewan ranch, where a soft lilac moon lights the vastness of the prairie landscape. Then, in a series of wide-ranging chapters that ponder the question "What makes a Westerner?" she explores the myths, the history,the peoples of the three prairie provinces. From the pioneer past to Weste rn stereotypes, from racial and ethnic inequalities to party politics, fromrural legends to urban realities, Lilac Moon effortlessly interweaves stra nds of history, family, politics and culture. Butala’s deep Western roots -her family blends bot French and English cultures and has lived in the wes t for five generations - - and her elegquent, perceptive, and questuionuibfmant style combine to create a book rich in insight and an abiding love fo r the vast region she knows so well. Published on the centennial anniversary of the entry of Alberta and Saskatchewan into Confederation, this is a book not just for Westerners, but for all Canadians who want to know -- and understand -- one of the seminal dreams of our nation."

200 CADIGAN, Sean T. Newfoundland and Labrador : A History. First Edition, Hardcover.
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.
