COZZENS, Frederic S. Acadia; or, A Month with the Blue Noses. New York: Derby & Jackson, 119 Nassau Street, 1859. Pp (4),[iii]-xi,13-329,(5). Double lithograph frontispiece portraits. 8vo, green pressed cloth. TPL 3897, Morley p.12, Waterston p.110, Tennyson 507, NSIB 175, Rhodenizer p.64. The record of a tour with much on the Acadians (the portraits are of two Acadian women), the Micmacs, and Halifax. Also the Blacks (Deer's Castle), Bedford, the opening of the Halifax Lunatic Asylum, Cape Breton, &c.is pleasant to visit Nova Scotia in the month of June. Pack up your flannels and your fishingtackle, leave behind your prejudices and your summer clothing, take your t rout-pole in one hand and a copy of Haliburton in the other, and step on board a Cunarder at Boston. In thirty-six hours you are in the loyal little province, and above you floats the red flag and the cross of St. George. My word for it, you will not regret the trip. "That the idea of visiting Nova Scotia ever struck any living person as something peculiarly pleasant and cheerful, is not within the bounds of probability. Very rude people are wontto speak of Halifax in connection with the name of a place not alluded to in polite society - except by clergymen. As for the rest of the Province, there are certain vague rumours of extensive and constant fogs, but nothing more. The land is a sort of terra incognita. Many take it to be a part of Canada, and others firmly believe it is somewhere in Newfoundland." - pp.13-14. Spine ends worn, corners bumped, spine and edges browned, cloth soiled,lacking free endpapers, front inner hinge cracked, foxed, penned name, els e a good, reading copy only. As is. 40.00
