202 BANNISTER, Jerry Rule of the Admirals : Law, Custom and Naval Government in Newfoundland, 1699-1832. First Edition, Paperback
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 2003, ISBN:0802086136 
BANNISTER, Jerry. The Rule of the Admirals : Law, Custom and Naval Government in Newfoundland, 1699-1832. Toronto : "Published for The Osgoode Societyfor Canadian Legal History by University of Toronto Press", (2003). First Edition. Pp (8),[ix]-xix,(7),[3]-423,(9). With tables, diagrams and a few illustrations in the text. 8vo, art-illustrated cardcovers with black spine."The Rule of the Admirals examines governance in Newfoundland from the rul e of the fishing admirals in 1699 to the establishment of representative government in 1832. It offers the first in-depth account of the rise and fallof the system of naval government that dominated the island for more than a century. In this provocative look at legal culture in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Newfoundland, Jerry Bannister explores three topics in detail: naval government in St. John's, surrogate courts in the outports, and patterns in the administration of law. He challenges the conventional view that early Newfoundland was a lawless frontier isolated from the rest of theAtlantic world, and argues that an effective system of naval government em erged to meet the needs of those in power. The Rule of the Admirals sheds light on one of the most misunderstood chapters in Canadian and British colonial history. Drawing on extensive archival research as well as a broad range of secondary sources, Bannister provides a groundbreaking reinterpretation of a critical period in the island's colonial development." - p.[i]. "The Rule of the Admirals opens exciting new vistas on the early socio-economic history of Canada's most recent province" -from the cover. Chapters : 1. Introduction; 2. The Fishing Admirals System; 3. An Unruly Set of People: The Struggle for Judicial Authority; 4. The Establishment of Naval Government; 5. A Fief of the Admiralty: Newfoundland under Naval Rule; 6.

216 BARNARD, Murray Jenson, L.B. Sea, Salt & Sweat : A Story of Nova Scotia and the Vast Atlantic Fishery. Second Edition
Four East Publications and N.S. Dept. of Fisheries, Halifax, 1986, 1986 0920427073 / 9780920427071 
BARNARD, Murray. Sea, Salt & Sweat : A Story of Nova Scotia and the Vast Atlantic Fishery. Second Edition with revisions by Jim Bennett. Illustrations by L.B. Jensen. Halifax, Nova Scotia : "A co-publication of Four East Publications and the Nova Scotia Department of Fisheries, 1986. Pp (2),3--111,(1). Illustrated throughout. Maps. Squarish 8vo, art-illustrated green cardcovers [with reproduction of a lithograph by William Ritchie on front].

"In the often stormy Northwest Atlantic, Nova Scotians are among North America's most productive fishermenm and the industry, dating back to 1504, is the oldest in the country. The eraly growth of Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and New England was based on neither furs nor bullion, but on the mighty cod.

It was the abundance of these ocean fish, noted by explorer John Cabot in his official reports, that drew the first European adventurers and developed the rich shipping trade of the North Atlantic triangle - a vital factor in the American Revolution, the rise of Nova Scotia in the age of sail, and ultimately the emergence of Canada as a nation. For centuries the offshore banks of the Northwest Atlantic were considered to hold an inexhaustible resource by the fishing nations of the world. However, post-war technology and massive fishing power seriously depleted fish stocks in the 1960s and early 1970s.

The new sciences of oceanology [sic] and ecology focussed public attention on the growong problem. Efforts of the International Commission for the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries helped develop international co-operation and a scientific basis for conservation. In 1977, Canada declared a 200-mile fishing zone and assumed control of this vital resource off her shores. To maintain the level of fish stocks and improve efficiency, federal and provincial fisheries authorities are co-operating with the fishermen and the fishing companies so that the fishermen of this coast will be able to handle a larger share of the Northwest Atlantic fishing industry than ever before.

Sea, Salt & Sweat outlines major developments in the Northwest Atlantic fisheries, from the beginning nearly 500 years ago to the present, including crucial effects on settlement, international trade, colonial wars and current diplomacy. Most important, it offers a fresh view of the life of Nova Scotia fishermen, their boats and gear, and the complex fishing business, with some probabilities for the future of this vital resource industry." - from the cover.

The chapters [un-numbered in the book] are :
1. In the Realm of the Ocean Sea;
2. When Cod was King;
3. Colonies of the Golden Triangle;
4. Salt Fish and Democracy;
5. Tall Spars and Dorymen;
