KIMBER, Stephen. Loyalists and Layabouts : The Rapid Rise and Faster Fall of Shelburne, Nova Scotia, 1783-1792. (Toronto) : Doubleday Canada, (2008). First Printing. Pp. (10),xi-xiii,(3),1-335,(1). Maps in text. 8vo, blue cloth with metallic lettering to spine.

"The few hundred Loyalists who gathered at Roubalet's Tavern in New York one night in 1782, shared a nightmare of the past and a dream of the future.

In the aftermath of the American Revolution, they found themselves abandoned by the king to whom they had promised their loyalty, and unwelcome in the land that had so recently been their own. They had no choice but to flee, but they were determined to build a new and better home for themselves elsewhere.

On the rocky shores of Roseway Bay on the south coast of Nova Scotia, beside one of the best harbours in the world, they would found a new and improved New York City. it would be cosmopolitan, but more refined, more royal, more loyal and certainly more exclusive than the place they were leaving forever.

At first, all seemed to go according to plan. Shelburne, as it was called, quickly became the fourth-largest city in North America. At the time, Nova Scotia governor John Parr grandly described it as 'the most considerable, most flourishing and most expeditious [city] ever.. built in so short a time...'

Within the decade, however, the Loyalists' dream city was well on tis way to becoming a ghost town. What went wrong?

This extraordinary and yet little-told episode from our nation's past is brought to exciting life by [Kimber]. Combining painstaking research and a novelistic flair for narrative, he charts Shelburne's 'rapid rise and faster fall' through the intertwined experiences of an eclcectic collection of its early settlers, from aristocrats to freed slaves, colonial officials to local entrepreneurs." - from the dust jacket.

"Strange as it may seem, this is the first travel book to cover the whole Province of Nova Scotia. In other words, it is the only book which takes its readers to the scenic and historic high-spots of both the Nova Scotian mainland and the Island of Cape Breton, considered by many the province's better half. Here, also, are those occasional asides into humor and philosophy which give to Mr Longstreth's books their unique flavor. While such virtues are all present in "To Nova Scotia,"there is one more, an elderly male companion, Doctor Urbanus Weagle, who accompanies Mr. Longstreth, contributing incisive comment as he goes. These two, commencing at Halifax, work down the "South Shore" with its little towns: Chester, discovered by Philadelphians; Lunenburg, home of the famous Bluenose; Liverpool, where they catch the big tuna; Shelburne of the Loyalist days; and others. From Yarmouth they turn north through Digby and Annapolis Royal and the Evangeline country and Pictou, first settled by Philadelphians [?], and so on to Cape Breton. Here, also, are the Bras d'Or Lakes and Louisbourg and the Margaree. To anyone in need of quiet beauty and a cool summer and who does not yet know Nova Scotia, this book will be a revelation."- from the dustjacket.

72 LOTZ, Pat, (ed.) Affairs with Old Houses : Personal Stories About Perserving Heritage Houses in Nova Scotia. First Edition, Signed
Nimbus Publishing Limited, Halifax, NS, 1999, ISBN:1551092956 
LOTZ, Pat, (ed.). Affairs with Old Houses : Personal Stories About Perserving Heritage Houses in Nova Scotia. (Halifax, Nova Scotia) : "Co-published by Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia and Nimbus Publishing Limited", (1999). First Edition. Pp. (10),[xi]-xii,[1]-195,(1). Illustrated. 8vo, maroon illustrated card covers, cream lettering to front and spine. Patricia Ann 'Pat' Lotz (b. October 20, 1930, Brighton, England - February 13, 2012, Halifax), writer, researcher, journalist. "Like all affairs of the heart, the decisionto restore an old house is often a leap of faith. Beneath its many charms and possibilities lie the secrets of past owners and builders. Some, like the Loyalist fireplace hidden behind three layers of fire brick in the White-Irin house, are treasures; others, like the lead paint in the J.B. North House, are potential trageidies. However, according to the sixteen candid first-hand accounts presented here, when all is said and done (which it seldom is), the satisfaction and rewards of bringing an old house back to life is worth the time, money, and attention expended. This very readable and highly enjoyable book chronicles the experiences of an eclectic selection of owners and houses around Nova Scotia, from Jim How's de Gannes House in Annapolis Royal to Stephen Townsend's 'Next Door to Leonard's' in Halfway Cove.Each owner had his or her reason for getting involved and each took a very different approach to the relationship. Affairs with Old Houses is a must for anyone contemplating an affair with an older house - the pitfalls are obvious and the solutions inspirational. It is also a must for the previously smitten and the never tempted, if for no other reason than to confirm what they already suspect - there is more to an affair with an old house than meets the eye." - from the rear cover. Foreword by Lieuteneant-Governor J. James Kinley; Introduction by Pat Lotz. Contents: 1. Rhonda Kelly on the Dickey House, Amherst; 2. Peggy Carson on 98 Water Street, Pictou; 3.
