A graceful essayist, widely published in leading journals of the time,he also wrote more substantial works, the most important of which is his Epitome of the Laws of Nova Scotia (1832-33), a unique work which earned himfame as "Nova Scotia's Blackstone" and which is still a primary source for historians. Murdoch returned to public life in 1841 when he was appointed clerk of the Board of Education where he laboured tirelessly to establish auniform provincial school system. Appointed recorder of Halifax in 1852, h e retired in 1860, after which he published his History of Nova Scotia (1865-67)." - TheCanadianEncyclopedia.com.

Large 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine. With map endpapers. "Newcomers to Lunenburg, one of Nova Scotia's oldestpermanent settlements, are struck by a sense of timelessness and stability engendered by the old-world appearance of its homes and public buildings. With houses in proximity to one another and the narrow streets running parallel to the harbour, Lunenburg is one of the finest examples of eighteenth-century British colonial town planning. But the architecture itself has a flair and uniqueness that belie its early beginnings. Here, low profile CapeCods suggest a New England influence; stately Georgian style homes share s treetscapes with pointed dormers, the hallmark of Gothic revival, as well as with the ubiquitous and functional Lunenburg Bump, which serves as a storm porch and provides an elevated view of the harbour; fanciful turn-of-the-century homes -- distinguished by large bay windows, elaborate mouldings, expansive verandahs, and corner turrets -- overlook each other on hilly streets, while brightly coloured waterfront buildings speak of a long association with seafaring traditions. Indeed, it is Lunenburg's proximity to the sea, and the prosperity generated by shipbuilding and the fishery that have shaped the character of its fine residences, public and commercial buildings, and allowed the development of a unique regional architectural style thathas made the town a UNESCO World Heritage Site." - from the dustjacket.

JOBB, Dean. Bluenose Justice : True Tales of Mischief, Mayhem and Murder. Lawrencetown Beach, N.S.: Pottersfield, 1993. First Edition. Pp (5),vi-[viii],(2),3-152. 8vo, blue card covers. "Justice, as the old saying goes, must be seen to be done. Sometimes justice must be seen to be believed. That's the case in 'Bluenose Justice', a collection of true stories drawn from NovaScotia's legal past. It's an eclectic mix of the slightly offbeat and the deadly serious, where wise-cracking judges and crafty embezzlers rub shoulders with executioners and cold-blooded murderers. Glace Bay's A.B. MacGillivray dispensed more wit than wisdom from the bench. Angus Walters, skipper of the famous racing schooner Bluenose, gave the Americans a run for their money in and out of court [pp. 67-75]. Jack Randell's defiant stand againstthe U.S. Coast Guard sparked an international incident and almost cost the Lunenburg rumrunner his life [pp. 17-24]. And James Forman, boss of one of Canada's oldest financial institutions, nearly broke the Bank of Nova Scot ia with his creative accounting." - from the rear cover. Very good. 10.00

E.P. Dutton, New York, 1987, ISBN:0525245405 1987 0525245405 / 9780525245407 
JONES, Sonia. It All Began With Daisy. New York : E.P. Dutton, An Eleanor Friede Book, (1987). First Printing. Pp (6),[vii]-xviii,1-237,(1). 8vo, white cloth spine, mauve paper-covered boards, gilt lettering to spine.

Sonia Harrison Jones (b. February 13, 1938, London, England).

"When Sonia and Gordon Jones decided they'd had enough of the rat race in New York City, that it was time for them to try country living, they certainly never dreamed they'd end up the owners of a multmillion-dollar yogurt business. Yearning for fresh air and peace and quiet, they left Manhattan and bought a twenty-five-acre seaside farm in Nova Scotia - Peninsula Farm - which they planned to use only as a residence while Sonia taught at a nearby university [Dalhousie University, Halifax] . Until then, their experience in farming had been limited to watering the plants in their shoe-box-size apartment, and they were quite surprised when a neighbor - amused at these naïve city folk - patiently explained to them that they'd have to have some "critters to gnaw off the land" or their soil would be ruined.

Before they knew it they were the baffled owners of six beef "critters" (cows) and one Jersey dairy critter - Daisy. But that was only the beginning. Now they had solved the grass problem, but to rid the barn of insects they had to buy chickens, and to dispose of the surplus milk produced by the overexuberant Daisy (who didn't seem to understand that the Joneses had bought her only to provide milk for their little family), they had to find a way to sell it. Since the government milk quota prohibited their selling milk, they decided to make yogurt, and Sonia set to work at her stove to perfect Peninsula Farm Yogurt (the problem of what to do with any spoiled yogurt was quickly solved by buying pigs to eat the mistakes). So, far from the semiretired life they had planned, Sonia and Gordon found themselves managing a working farm with cows, chickens, and pigs as well as running a fast-growing yogurt business!

They could hardly keep up with the demand for their gourmet yogurt, and soon what had started as a kitchen-stove operation had grown into a computerized dairy plant that now holds its own against Canadian food industry glants. With perseverance, dedication, creativity, humor, some luck, and lots of what the Joneses like to call "vigorous muddling," this energetic couple has overcome countless obstacles - consumer scams, bureaucratic mazes - to achieve the success and recognition that has crowned Daisy "Cow of the Year" and Sonia "The Yogurt Queen" and still retains the standards of high-quality products and honesty in business. Inspiring, funny, and heartwarming - a modern The Egg and I - It All Began With Daisy is a unique tale of accidental riches and of what happens wheb two urban professionals are let loose on a farm." from the jacket.

Stephen Edward Kimber (b. August 25, 1949, Halifax, Nova Scotia).

"The story of National Sea Products Ltd. is the story of how one company evolved from a fishermen's grocery store in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, to one of the world's largest fishing enterprises. Now, National Sea is a huge multinational corporation that employs thousands of people, operates a large fleet of fishing vessels, owns its own shipyard and runs numerous fish-processing plants along the Atlantic coast of North America. But this book is not just a "gussied-up" chronicle of a "grand and gjorious past." It is also a chronicle of the "other stuff" - the family feuds, the boardroom battles, the financial finagling that help make it a real "fish-and-guts" success story." - from the front dj flap.
