3 HALIBURTON, Thomas Chandler DAVIES, Richard A. (ed.) Letters of Thomas Chandler Haliburton. First Edition in dustjacket.
University of Toronto Press, Toronto , 1988, ISBN:0802026281 
(HALIBURTON, Thomas Chandler). DAVIES, Richard A. (ed.). The Letters of Thomas Chandler Haliburton. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (1988). First Edition. Pp (8),[ix]-xxi,(1),[1]-293,(5), including frontispiece and illustrations. 8vo, blue cloth, silver lettering to spine.

"'1 am Sam Slick, says I, at least what's left of me.' wrote Thomas Chandler Haliburton in response to a request for his autograph. Throughout his lifetime and since, he has been all but engulfed by his own comic creation. But Haliburton was also a lawyer, a judge, and a politician. The letters collected in this volume reveal much about the man and his varied careers.

Born in Nova Scotia in 1796, Haliburton was educated at King's College and called to the bar in 1 820. He practised law in Annapolis Royal and represented that constituency in the provincial assembly until his appointment to the bench in 1829. It was during this time that his first works, on Nova Scotia history, were published, and the letters of this period reveal much about Haliburton's views,both literary and legal. In later years, as the success of the Sam Slick stories grew, Haliburton's letters to his publisher in London record his confidence in the popularity of his writing, as well as the frustration of a man of intelligence living in what he considered an isolated part of the world. In 1856 he retired from the bench of the supreme Court of Nova Scotia, and went to live in England, where he died in 1865.

The letters in this volume has been carefully edited, annotated, and divided into six sections to indicate the main stages of Haliburton's life, each accompanied by a brief introduction. Fully two-thirds of the letters are published here for the first time. They extend our understanding of his well-known relationships withsuch figures as Joseph Howe of Halifax, G.K. Nichols of Digby, and Richard Bentley, his London publisher. They also show, for the first time, the extent of his English friendships: with Mrs Frances Trollope and her family, with James Haliburton the Egyptologist and his brother Decimus Burton, the celebrated architect, and with many others.

This collection reveals new dimensions about a central figure of early Canadian writing, one who, while happily spending the last years of his life in England, always remained an enthusiastic proponent of the potential of North America. His letters reflect a life of service to the province in which he was born, as a lawyer and judge, historian, businessman and entrepreneur, public servant, and internationally renowned author.
