This is an account of the Loomer family, written by the late Larry Loomer, a well known antiquarian bookseller in Windsor Nova Scotia and author of Windsor, Nova Scotia : A Journey in History.

The Loomers Of Carleton County [New Brunswick] is intelligently compiled within an historical framework, and supported by references. Mr. Loomer's literary talent and his skill as a researcher come together to make this book a fascinating read. The author has added many pen notations to lower margins, and has extended the book by [5] pages of hand printed notes to rear, all contributing favourably to enhancing and further developing the text. All pen notations are legibly printed. The maps are hand drawn, both clear and a pleasure to examine.

This book is very scarce, being one of only four copies, and was never available for sale, this being the author's own annotated copy, the other three having been distributed to institutions.

Wear to fore-edge and lower edge, tight binding, with many penned annotations and cancellations by the author. A very good copy. 1,000.00
