'Maritime Music Greats' follows the story of Maritime music overa fifty year span -- the local environment, the struggles in the industry, and the songs that have brought fame -- from fiddling styles and ceilidh a t the Grand Ole Opry, to the Acadian accent and 'Singalong Jubilee'. It profiles such performers as oldtime fiddlin' great Don Messer, the distinctly Canadian Stompin' Tom Connors, the kilt and country of John Allan Cameron, country Carroll Baker, and the innovative Rankins. Complete with anecdotes and photos, 'Maritime Music Greats' provides an informative and entertaining look at the region's music industry." - from the rear cover. Vg. 12.00

64 BEBB, James T Saga of the Rugged Islands. First Edition
1993, 1993 
BEBB, James T. Saga of the Rugged Islands. [Lockeport, Nova Scotia] : The author, 1993. First Edition. Pp. (6),1-256,(2). With 10 b&w photos as well as maps and other illustrations in the text. 8vo, printed white card covers iwth blue lettering to front, blank spine.

James Trevor Bebb (b.1926 Berlew, Wales - d. 2006).

The author, once the owner of what surely was the only Cape Island lobster boat in all of Wales, here continues the maritime history of Lockeport, Nova Scotia begun in Quest for the Phantom Fleet. While the book suffers somewhat from the diffuseness common to local histories, this is largely recompensed by a felicitous prose style.

"Rugged" Islands;
The New England Planters;
In Favour of Simeon Perkins;
Alarums and Excursions;
The Arrival of the Loyalists;

See Vaison p.5, NSIB 198.

Winthrop Pickard Bell (b. May 12, 1884, Halifax – d. April 4, 1965, Chester, Nova Scotia) Canadian scholar and historian.

Reprint of 1961 Edition with a new Introduction by L.D. McCann.

"Since its publication in 1961, The "Foreign Protestants" has earned acclaim as a minor classic in the writing of Nova Scotia's history. It investigates, in a thorough and comprehensive manner, the circumstances of some 2,700 Germans and others — the so-called Palatines—who migrated to Nova Scotia in the early 1750s. But it is more than just a reconstitution of the characteristics of these people. The study also examines, for example, colonial settlement schemes, the disputes over Acadian lands, the process of social adjustment in a New World setting, and the long-term political and economic development of the "foreign Protestants." Long out-of print, it is reissued by the Centre for Canadian Studies at Mount Allison University to emphasize the seminal importance of this pioneering study. " - from the jacket.

"This is a study of the settlers who, under British auspices, came to Nova Scotia from the continent of Europe between 1749 and 1752. The plans for the British colonial authorities fro further immigration from that source did not materialize, but the large majority of 'foreign Protestants' who arrived in those yfew years were settled by the government in a township of their own and constituted a distinctive population group. Their descendants have multiplied and many of them have scattered; but Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, still retains many distinctive accents and customs and some characteristic turns of thought and speech." - from the original edition's dj.
