Ritchie began his career practicing law in SaintJohn, New Brunswick, where he became a strong and determined advocate of r esponsible government for that province. He became a judge of the New Brunswick Supreme Court in 1855, and was subsequently appointed to the Supreme Court of Canada where he served from 1879 until 1892. Although Ritchie opposed Canadian confederation he subsequently gave the constitution a broad andbalanced interpretation. he should receivce credit as the father of judici al legislation review in Canada as he was the first judge to strike down a provincial statute for failing to fall within the powers constitutionally assigned to the provincial legislature." - from the rear cover.

First Paperback Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-xxi,(5),[3]-318,(2). Maps. Index. 8vo, art-illustrated card covers, lettered in black and white. ""Adding to a dynamic new wave of scholarship in Atlantic history, The Loyal Atlantic offers fresh interpretations of the key roleplayed by Loyalism in shaping the early modern British Empire. This cohesi ve collection investigates how Loyalism and the empire were mutually constituted and reconstituted from the eighteenth century onward. Featuring contributions by authors from across Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom, The Loyal Atlantic brings Loyalism into a genuinely international focus. Through cutting-edge archival research, The Loyal Atlantic contextualizes Loyalism within the larger history of the British Empire. It also details how, far from being a passive allegiance, Loyalism changed in unexpected and fascinating ways - especially in times of crisis. Most importantly, The Loyal Atlantic demonstrates that neither the conquest of Canada nor the American Revolution can be properly understood without assessing the meanings of Loyalism in the wider Atlantic world."

"The Maritimes, a composite of three Canadian provinces, has always had its own unique identity -- an unspoiled area of ever-changing landscapes characterized and influenced by the brooding presence of the great Atlantic Ocean. Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island are joined as well by a common social fabric ofsmall communities organized around a sustained industry -- fishing, farmin g, lumbering -- each served by the superstructure of sedate villages, thriving towns, and at least one cosmopolitan city per province. But, as always,the whole is greater than the parts: the Maritimes present an integrated m osaic of rich and varied images that leave the lasting impression of a place both similar and varied, rugged and serene, pastoral and, unmistakably, maritime." -from the dustjacket.

Here, at Kings Landing Historical Settlement, th e sights and sounds, the pleasures and labours, the small activities of daily life, are those of a century or more ago. Here our modern world is unimagined. To see Kings Landing brought to life is to knowwhat inspired the poetic imagery of the Victorians. No brief description can convey the beautiful richness and variety of human detail in this book, which recreates Victorian life through all the seasons and from childhood to old age. All the photographs in this book were specially commissioned. They give a representation of the Settlement and form an album of central New Brunswick in the nineteenth century. The introduction and the extensive detailed captions to theplates add a wealth of historical information that rounds out this portray al of early rural life in a part of British North America." - from the dustjacket.
