HAYES, John F. The Dangerous Cove : A story of the early days in Newfoundland. Illustrated by Fred Finley, R.C.A. Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal: The Copp Clark Publishing Co. Limited, (1957). Pp (4),v,(1),1-265,(1). 8vo, red cloth. O'Dea 3252, Watters p.309, Rhodenizer p.426. "In this story, set in Newfoundland in the year 1676, [Hayes] brings to life the stirring days of piracy and the Fishing Admirals, when the first intrepid fishermen, attempting to establish permanent settlement in the fishing coves, were struggling to survive the attacks of the Devon Captains who feared that settlement would destroy their lucrative, if nefarious practices. It is a tale to stir the blood of young Canadians and to make them proud of the dauntless courage displayed by the pioneer fishermen." - from the not-present dust-jacket. Very good. Lacking dj. 15.00
