1 SMITH, James F. PINEO, Henry Gesner Henry Gesner Pineo. Signed
North Cumberland Historical Society, Pugwash, N.S., 1977, 
SMITH, James F. Henry Gesner Pineo. Pugwash, N.S.: The North Cumberland Historical Society, 1977. Publication No. 7. Pp (6),[1]-41,(1). 4to, brown 3-ring folder, typed paper label to front cover. “For decades, the Pineos managed financial and commercial affairs in and around Pugwash, Cumberland County, Nova Scotia. Their control was absolute and the effects, long-lasting. More importantly, their business affluence earned them entry into provincial politics where, on occasion, they flexed their partisan muscles with sometimes startling results. The father arranged a nearly-successful effort to unseat the mighty Charles Tupper in 1859, and then destroyed the Governmentof Joseph Howe in 1863. The son was the only pro-Confederation candidate t o win and hold a Legislature seat in anti-Confederate Nova Scotia, 1867-1871. Who were these men, father and son? They were the Hon, Henry Gesner Pineo, Sr., M.L.C., and Henry Gesner Pineo, Jr., M.P.P. for Cumberland.” (from p. 1). Light foxing, else very good. Signed by the author and with complimentary inscription from the North Cumberland Historical Society. 30.00
