Pp (4),5-40. 8vo, brown printed stapled card covers. Tennyson, Cape Bretoniana, 1364 for the following: Includes Appendix B which contains a number of documents “which tells the tragic story of a shipload of convicts from Ireland destined for the back settlements of Canada, who were literally dumped upon the shores of Cape Breton in mid-December 1788, without provisions or adequate clothing; and of the problem thereby created for the government and few inhabitants of the new capital, Sydney, who had barely sufficient food and clothing to last them until the opening of navigation and spent the winter in dread of famine, disease and crime.” (pp 14-38). The place was near Main-à-Dieu; the ship was the Providence. Very good. 60.00
