19pp extract, salvaged from a damaged issue of The North American Review, Volume 19, No. 44, July, 1824. A contemporary review of the rare title published at Halifax, Nova Scotia, 1823. According to the Bibliography Of Canadiana, by the Public Library, Toronto, 1959, reference no. 1282, the authorship was attributed to Walter Bromley, who founded the Royal Acadian School or Halifax, but appears to have been written by Haliburton. The work provides details respecting climate, flora and fauna, natural resources, population, major cities and settlements, native tribes, agriculture, trade, law and government, and education. There are also chapters sketching the capture of Louisbourg in 1758 and the state of the province during the administrations of Sir George Prevost, Sir John Sherbrooke, the Earl of Dalhousie, and General Sir James Kempt. Housed in protective mylar report cover with spine sleeve. Bookseller Inventory #
