A preliminary draft of a paper to be read at the meetings of theSociety for the Scientific Study of Religion, San Francisco, October, 1973 . “Why is it that Pictou County has produced such a disproportionately large number of eminent Canadians by comparison to other counties in Nova Scotia? Pictonians are predominantly Scots Presbyterians, but so are the populations of other counties which have produced far fewer notables. Similarly, Pictou County was not alone in the early development of institutions of higher education. The explanation of Pictou!s productivity of prominent people must be sought elsewhere. There is one other feature which distinguishes Pictou County from others - its history of intense religious conflict. The thesis of this paper is that a latent function of this religious conflict wasthe production of an environment which nurtured an unusually high number o f notables.” (Abstract).

Pp (4),v-vi,1-210,+ 8-page central section of b&w photos. 8vo, photo-illustrated brown card covers. Monica Graham (b. 1954). "He was a sailor, a miner, a bounty hunter, a prospector, a firefighter, a ghost hunter, a railway guard, and a strike buster - among other things. But Peter Owen Carroll, a.k.a. Peachie, is best remembered as the celebrated and controversial Maritime police detective of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Fired and re-hired many times, and with a checkered history on both sides of the law, Peachie Carroll was a formidable police investigator who arrested moonshine-makers and rum-runners, petty thieves and embezzlers. Peachie also solved some of the Maritimes’ most sensational crimes, including the 1892 murder of Moncton police officer Joseph E. Stedman and the 1896 killing of Eliza Dutcher and her son. In The Great Maritime Detective, author Monica Graham explores Peachie's upbringing in Pictou, his early career in law enforcement, and his adventures searching for gold in the West. Already a long-standing hero of Pictou County, Peachie is truly one of the Maritimes' most colourful characters." - from the back cover. Gift inscription, else very good. 10.00

Here an auctioneer is cracking his voice in the vain effort to sell some chairs and tables that have outlived their usefulness, while his stentorian tones are almost drowned by the quacking of ducks and the squawking of chickens, which are tied by their legs and thrown together in a heap on one side, to await the coming of a purchaser.
