Cornell University Press, Ithaca, NY, 1999, ISBN:0801435625 
BAILY, Samuel L. Immigrants in the Lands of Promise : Italians in Buenos Aires and New York City, 1870-1914. Ithaca & London : Cornell University Press, (1999). First Printing. Pp. (6),v-vi,1-280. With several maps, tables and graphs in the text . 8vo, maroon cloth spine with silver lettering, off-white boards.. In the Cornell Studies in Comparative History series. "Most studies of immigration to the New World have focused on the United States. Samuel L. Baily's eagerly awaited book broadens that perspective through a comparative analysis of Italian immigrants to Buenos Aires and New York Citybefore World War I. It is one of the few works to trace Italians from thei r villages of origin to different destinations abroad. Baily examines the adjustment of Italians in the two cities, comparing such factors as employment opportunities, skill levels, pace of migration, degree of prejudice, anddevelopment of the Italian community. Of the two destinations, Buenos Aire s offered Italians more extensive opportunities, and those who elected to move there tended to have the appropriate education or training to succeed. These immigrants, who adjusted more rapidly than their North American counterparts, adopted a long-term strategy of investing savings in their New World home. In New York, in contrast, the immigrants found fewer skilled and white-collar jobs, more competition from previous immigrant groups, greater discrimination, and a less supportive Italian enclave. As a result, rather than put down roots, many sought to earn money as rapidly as possible and send their earnings back to family in Italy. Baily views the migration process as a global phenomenon. Building on his richly documented case studies, the author briefly examines Italian communities in San Francisco, Toronto, and Sao Paulo. He establishes a continuum of immigrant adjustment in urban settings, creating a landmark study in both immigration and comparative history." - from the dj.

A biography of essayist, novelist, critic, scholar, and eminent Nova Scotian Archibald MacMechan, (.b. June 21, 1822, Kitchener, Ontario - d. August 7, 1933). "Archibald MacMechan taught English at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, between 1889and 1931. His students included Ernest Buckler, Lucy Maud Montgomery and H elen Creighton, and his influence as a teacher was far reaching. He was very active as a book reviewer whose reviews were widely read and often ahead of their time. Writers as disparate as Herman Melville and Virginia Woolf wrote to him expressing their appreciation of his readings of their work. MacMechan himself thought he would be best remembered as a chronicler of NovaScotia's seafaring past. His accounts of significant moments in the provin ce's history were published in three volumes - Old Province Tales, Sagas ofthe Sea, and There Go The Ships. Popular when they were published in the 1 920s, they are now out of print. This study of MacMechan is an attempt to place his work in its context and bring it to the attention of a new generation of readers." - rear cover. Chapters : 1. Scholar; 2. Critic of Poetry; 3.

Pp (6),7-172,(4). 8vo, illustrated black card covers, lettered in orange, yellow and white. Brian Bartlett (October 1, 1953, St. Stephen, New Brunswick). "In this, his firstbook of prose, distinguished Canadian poet Brian Bartlett offers a daily d iary from spring to spring. In the tradoition of John Clare's notebooks andletters, Henry David Thoreau's journals, and Annie Dillard's Pilgfrim at T inker Creek, Bartlett looks out at his surroundings with a poet's eye for detail, his ear attuned to the ringings of the natural world. Grounded in Nova Scotia, but reflecting travels further afield to Alberta, Nebraska, New York City and Ireland, the entries take on the qualities of field reports, sketches, commentaries, tributes and laments, quotations and collages. Over366 daily entries, Bartlett shows that the resonance between human life an d natrure is there, waiting to be heard." (from the back cover). Very good.12.50
