The history of each artifact variety is traced, including manufacturing techniques, and distribution routes from the factories to theAcadian houses where the artifacts were used and discarded. The artifacts analysed are quantified and compared with similar information from other contemporaneous, domestic sites in eastern North America and France. Status differences are discussed. As a whole, the place of Acadian households in international, national and local markets is examined. becomes evident that the expanding, eighteenth century Acadian population at Belleisle benefited from the availability of a multitude of goods. This allowed them to developa material life rather different from those of other Acadians, or the cont emporaneous residents of the St. Lawrence Valley and New England. The ceramics and glass indicate that the Belleisle Acadians led a comfortable life.”(Abstract). Rubbed, else very good. 45.00

An unillustrated list of 320 ceramic items. This is the original copy from which a facsimile reprint was done in 1972 (check our website for the reprint). “In presenting this smallcollection of old China to the Museum of King's College, Windsor, N.S., it is hoped it will be borne in mind that it must be valued not for its intri nsic worth, but as recollections of the early settlers in these Colonies, among which will be found several contributions from families of later arrival. The original intention, however, of the collection was to save from destruction some specimens of the China brought to the country by the Loyalists, and to place them in the first College in British North America established by Royal Charter since their landing – a fitting place of deposit for the relics of those leal and true subjects of the English Crown. It is rather a remarkable fact, that in the hazardous departure of these Refugees, though obliged in many cases to leave their books, plate, and even clothing; still the bowl in which their children were baptized, or some valuable articles of glass or porcelain was always saved, and it is believed their descendants will place some value on these slight memorials of an ancestry worthyto be held in all honor. A distinguished general Officer when in command o f the troops in St. John, truly and beautifully remarked to the donor, “that the self-denying devotion of those Loyalists in their attachment to theirSovereign, exceeded anything on record in the pages of History”.” - from t he Preface.
