Colonel Simeon Perkins was born in Norwich, Connecticut, one of sixteen children of Jacob Perkins and Jemima Leonard. He came to Liverpool, Nova Scotia, in May 1762 as part of the New England Planter migration to Nova Scotia. In Liverpool, Perkins immediately began trading in fish and lumber and forged trading ties with New England, Newfoundland, Europe and the West Indies. During the American Revolution, Perkins was at first neutral, but became increasingly loyal to the British cause. His diary, which he began in 1766, remains a vital source for historians studying colonial Canada and the battle for identity and loyalty. After relentless American privateerattacks on shipping and an attempted American looting of Liverpool itself, Perkins led the outfitting of several privateer ships against the American s. Perkins also invested in privateering during the Napoleonic Wars, earning substantial returns from vessels such as the ships Charles Mary Wentworth, Duke of Kent and the famous brig Rover. A born leader, he held public office for a long period representing Queens County in the Nova Scotia House of Assembly from 1765 to 1768 and from 1770 to 1799. He held twenty-seven government positions in his life time, none of which paid including justice of the peace, colonel of the militia, and judge in the Inferior Court of Common Pleas and the Court of Quarter Sessions." - from wikipedia.

Pp (6),[vii]-xviii,1-298,(4). 8vo, black cloth. Tennyson 417, Tennyson, Cape Bretoniana 1060. George Alexander Rawlyk (b. May 19, 1935, Thorold, Ontario - d. November 23, 1995, Ottawa). "This book is primarilyconcerned with two facets of Massachusetts' relationship with Nova Scotia: its economic stranglehold over the neighbouring colony during most of the period from 1630 to 1784 and the various military thrusts sent from New England to the region to the northeast. Instead of seeing the expansion of NewEngland into Nova Scotia as leading inevitably and naturally to the expuls ion of the Acadians in 1755, Professor Rawlyk perceives Massachusetts' interest in the area as suddenly declining after the Louisbourg campaign of 1745. The military expeditions did not represent a growing Massachusetts imperialism but were rather the expression of temporary enthusiasm and concern. They represented a response, not to popular demand, but to the political pressure of certain interest groups and the shrill rhetoric of various propagandists. After 1755 whatever sympathetic concern Massachusetts had for its neighbouring colony virtually disappeared. Nova Scotia was regarded as a backward Anglophile colony incapable and unworthy of political redemtion. This indifference, together with other factors, meant that when the American Revolution broke out, Nova Scotia rejected it." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1.

Illustrations in the text. 8vo, redboards, black lettering to spine. No.67 in the McGill-Queens Native and No rthern Series.. "When New Zealand-born and Oxford-educated anthropologist Diamond Jenness set aside hopes of building a career in the South Pacific tojoin Vilhjalmur Stefansson's Canadian Arctic Expedition, he had little ide a of what lay ahead. But Jenness thrived under the duress of that transformational experience: his groundbreaking ethnographic work, recounted in People of the Twilight and in Dawn in Arctic Alaska, became a lasting contribution to twentieth-century anthropology, and the foundation of a career he would devote to researching Canada's first peoples. Barnett Richling draws upon a wealth of sources to shed light on Jenness's tenure with the Anthropological Division of the National Museum of Canada His ifield work took him beyond the Arctic to seven First Nations communities from Georgian Bay to British Columbia's interior. Renowned as a pre-eminent scholar of Inuit culture, Jenness also influenced linguistics, ethnology, material culture, and Northern archaeology. His story is also one of institutional conflict: Jenness worked as a public servant at a time when the federal government spearheaded anthropological research, although his commitment to the first peoplesof his adopted homeland placed him at odds with Ottawa's approach to abori ginal affairs. In Twilight and in Dawn is an exploration of one man's life in anthropology, and of the conditions - at the museum, on the reserves, insociety's mainstream, and in the world at large - that shaped his work." f rom the dj.
