BARRETT, Wayne. Kings Landing : Country Life in Early Canada. Photographs by Wayne Barrett. Introduction by George MacBeath. Toronto : Oxford University Press, 1979. First Printing. Pp (4),5-9,(1),+ 89 plates. Oblong 8vo, reddish cloth. "On a peaceful bank of the Saint John River is a village livingin the eighteen hundreds. Here, at Kings Landing Historical Settlement, th e sights and sounds, the pleasures and labours, the small activities of daily life, are those of a century or more ago. Here our modern world is unimagined. To see Kings Landing brought to life is to knowwhat inspired the poetic imagery of the Victorians. No brief description can convey the beautiful richness and variety of human detail in this book, which recreates Victorian life through all the seasons and from childhood to old age. All the photographs in this book were specially commissioned. They give a representation of the Settlement and form an album of central New Brunswick in the nineteenth century. The introduction and the extensive detailed captions to theplates add a wealth of historical information that rounds out this portray al of early rural life in a part of British North America." - from the dustjacket.
