The emphasis istherefore on the political and ecclesiastical history of the Picts from th e sixth century AD to their sudden disappearance as an independent people in the mid ninth century."

Illustrations by Jean Edmonds Hancock. Collection compiled by Betty Rockwell. “Nellie Collins was born on April 5 , 1887 in New Ross, Nova Scotia. At twenty-two she married Edward Hergett, farmer and lumberman. Nellie Collins Hergett was soon to become affectionately called 'Hergie' by those lucky enough to know her. The couple moved to Windsor, Hants County and then eventually settled in Upper Dyke Village, Kings County, close to Kentville. Like many women of her generation who had to work hard without the benefit of most of today's labour saving devices, Hergie still found time to indulge in her interests in reading, painting andwriting. Poetry became a form of journal which described and sometimes cel ebrated those events of her life which had significance. From the age of thirteen she wrote of family and neighbors, local and national politics and even world affairs. Nothing was too humble or grand to be ignored. [...] Many of these poems have been published individually; this is the first time that a collection has been assembled. An enjoyable glimpse of the world through Hergie's eyes.” Tape-spine detaching at rear, else good. Signed with inscription by the author. 20.00

212 HILLIS, George Bernard Class and Culture in the Development of a Rural Area.
Acadia University Institute, Wolfville, Nova Scotia, 1960, 
HILLIS, George Bernard. Class and Culture in the Development of a Rural Area. Thesis submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Degree of Master of Arts in the Department of Psychology at Acadia University. Wolfville, Nova Scotia : Acadia University Institute, May 1960. Pp. (4),1-63 leaves. Printed on one side only. 4to, printed grey card covers, black titles to front, blue comb-bound spine. Deemed "Confidential" according to the front cover. "Throughout the picturesque Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia,few localities rival the quaint and natural beauty of the town of Wolfvill e, the small, snug Gaspereau Valley and the lofty look-out of the South Mountain. Wolfville is well known as the home of Acadia University and as a respectable, quiet town for profession and semi-professional people wishing to retire in cultural comfort. Gaspereau perpetuates two hundred years of successful farming, years which have left the people with a strong and proud attachment to their land. The valley folk appear no less 'respectable' thantheir near neighbors of the town. Both scenes contribute a first impressio n of peace, contentment and happiness. However, an observer, looking more closely, will begin to notice something else -- the existence of homes outlining the town and valley village which appear quite incongruous in comparison. The source of this different stream of life seems to be the mountain communities, just south towards the wooded areas. Two things are quickly apparent to the observer: 1. the 'mountain people' live a different way of life-- easily seen by their small, unkept homes, their dress, and their employ ment or usual lack of it; and 2. the town and valley people have very strong attitudes toward the 'lesser breeds': -- negative, unyielding, emotionally charges, derogatory attitudes." - from pp. 1-2. Contents: 1. Introduction: Setting -- Methods -- Viewpoints; 2. General Historical Perspective: The Evolution of the Class Structure; 3.

"Ireland, in 1014 , provides the background for this brilliant new novel, Cecelia Holland's third. The High King of Ireland, Brian Boru, is at Cathair-by-Tarya with hiskings and chiefs. The ever-present possibility of war has moved ominously into the foreground. Once more Maelmordha, King of Leinster, has allied himself wiht the Danes and with his nephew Sygtrygg, King of Dublin; to him come not only the Danes of Ireland, but Vikings and fightingmen from all overthe Northern seas. Returning with his kinsmen froma raid against the Danes , Muirtagh, The o Cullinane, is summoned to Cathair and asked to lend his support to the High King's forces. he and his brother Cearbhall find themselves in the great hall in an atmosphere of menace, and the recollection of the bitter feud which had caused the almost entire destruction of his clan some twenty years before comes flooding back over him; having forced himselfto forget and to rebuild the clan in Meath, his peacefull, pastoral existe nce is suddenly shattered. Cearhall says, 'They thought perhaps we'd forgotten'; Muirtagh replies, 'They never thought that. They thought they'd forgotten. That's the way with them'. In Muirtagh The o Cullinane, Muirtagh the Bowman, Muirtagh the Harper, Cecelia Holland has created her most complex, most persuasive character, and her subtle probing of the motives and actions of this reasonable, peace-loving man, forced into the extreme situations of feud and war, results in a novel of the greatest distinction, both as tocharacter portrayal and action." - from the dustjacket.
