About this Item: NY. 1983. The Library Of America, 1983. thick tan & red cloth hardbound 8vo. 8º (octavo). dustwrapper in protective plastic book jacket cover. fine cond. binding square & tight. covers clean. edges clean. tiny scratch on front flyleaf, otherwise contents free of markings. NOTE: the marker ribbon is missing (just a little nub at the top left). dustwrapper in fine cond. not worn or torn or price clipped. nice clean copy. no library markings or store stamps, no stickers or bookplates, no names, no inking , no underlining, no remainder markings etc ~. first edition. first printing so stated. 1620p. + colophon. b&w maps. chronology. note on the texts. notes index. world history. history of france. history of england. history of canada. history of the united states. ~ This is the second of two volumes which together incorporate all seven titles of Francis Parkman's monumental account of France and England's imperial struggle for dominance on the North American continent. Parkman conceived the project in 1841, when he was a Harvard sophomore, and persisted in it despite chronic nervous disorders that affected his eyes. The last volume of what he called his "history of the American forest" appeared almost thirty years after the first. Deservedly compared, as a literary achievement, to Gibbon's The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Parkman's accomplishment is hardly less awesome than the explorations and adventures he so vividly describes. His own indomitable spirit is reflected in two of the history's most fiercely resolute figures: La Salle, obsessed with colonizing the Mississippi Valley, and Frontenac, determined to bolster France's tottering position in the New World. Now for the first time Parkman's complete epic appears in a compact form. It tells a story of great empires maneuvering in an unfamiliar and hostile terrain with all the guile, sophistication, and ingenuity learned from centuries of European rivalry. Count Frontenac and New France under Louis XIV tells how France might have won her imperial struggle with England. Frontenac, a courtier made governor of New France by that most sagacious of monarchs, oversaw the colony's brightest era of growth and influence. Had Canada's later governors possessed his administrative skill and personal force, his sense of diplomacy and political talent, or his grasp of the uses of power in a modern world, the English colonies to the south might have become part of what Frontenac saw as a continental scheme of French dominion. England's American colonies flourished, while France, in both the Old World and the New, declined from its greatness of the late seventeenth century. Conflict over the developing western regions of North America erupted in a series of colonial wars. As narrated by Parkman in A Half~Century of Conflict, these American campaigns, while only part of a larger, global struggle, prepared the colonies for the American Revolution. In Montcalm and Wolfe Parkman describes the fatal confrontation of the two great French and English commanders whose climactic battle marked the end of French power in America. As the English colonies cooperated for their own defense, they began to realize their common interests, their relative strength, and their unique position; and in this imperial war of European powers we begin to see American figures~Benjamin Franklin, George Washington~soon to occupy a historical stage of their own. Parkman's chronicle, concluding on the Plains of Abraham after nearly two and a half centuries of conflict, will permanently transform our image of the American landscape. Written with verve, suppleness, and wit, this grand narrative history of political and theological conflict, of feats of physical endurance, of courtly manners practiced with comic disproportion against the backdrop of a looming wilderness, is itself one of the still undiscovered treasures of our national and of world literature. VOLUME TWO ONLY of the two volume set. Seller Inventory # 6091802

About this Item: Library Of America, 1983. hardcover. Condition: Very Good In Dustjacket. 1st edition. New York. 1983. Library Of America. 1st Printing. Very Good In Dustjacket. ISBN: 0940450119. 1620 pages. hardcover. FROM THE PUBLISHER - This is the second of two volumes which together incorporate all seven titles of Francis Parkmanís monumental account of France and Englandís imperial struggle for dominance on the North American continent. Parkman conceived the project in 1841, when he was a Harvard sophomore, and persisted in it despite chronic nervous disorders that affected his eyes. The last volume of what he called his Ďhistory of the American forestí appeared almost thirty years after the first. Deservedly compared, as a literary achievement, to Gibbonís The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Parkmanís accomplishment is hardly less awesome than the explorations and adventures he so vividly describes. His own indomitable spirit is reflected in two of the historyís most fiercely resolute figures: La Salle, obsessed with colonizing the Mississippi Valley, and Frontenac, determined to bolster Franceís tottering position in the New World. Now for the first time Parkmanís complete epic appears in a compact form. It tells a story of great empires maneuvering in an unfamiliar and hostile terrain with all the guile, sophistication, and ingenuity learned from centuries of European rivalry. Count Frontenac and New France Under Louis XIV tells how France might have won her imperial struggle with England. Frontenac, a courtier made governor of New France by that most sagacious of monarchs, oversaw the colonyís brightest era of growth and influence. Had Canadaís later governors possessed his administrative skill and personal force, his sense of diplomacy and political talent, or his grasp of the uses of power in a modern world, the English colonies to the south might have become part of what Frontenac saw as a continental scheme of French dominion. Englandís American colonies flourished, while France, in both the Old World and the New, declined from its greatness of the late seventeenth century. Conflict over the developing western regions of North America erupted in a series of colonial wars. As narrated by Parkman an in A Half-Century of Conflict, these American campaigns, while only part of a larger, global struggle, prepared the Colonies for the American Revolution. In Montcalm and Wolfe Parkman describes the fatal confrontation of the two great French and English commanders whose climactic battle marked the end of French power in America. As the English Colonies cooperated for their own defense, they began to realize their common interests, their relative strength, and their unique position; and in this imperial war of European powers we begin to see American figures - Benjamin Franklin, George Washington - soon to occupy a historical stage of their own. Parkmanís chronicle, concluding on the Plains of Abraham after nearly two and a half centuries of conflict, will permanently transform our image of the American landscape. Written with verve, suppleness, and wit, this grand narrative history of political and theological conflict, of feats of physical endurance, of courtly manners practiced with comic disproportion against the backdrop of a looming wilderness, is itself one of the still undiscovered treasures of our national and of world literature. inventory #6017.

About this Item: Harper Collins Canada, 2014. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. In September 1759, a small band of British troops led by James Wolfe scaled the tall cliff overlooking a farmer's field owned by Abraham Martin and overpowered the French garrison that protected the area, allowing the bulk of the British army to ascend the cliff behind and attack the French, who, led by Louis-Joseph de Montcalm, were largely unaware of Wolfe's tactics. The battle that ensued on what would become known as the Plains of Abraham would forever shape the geography and politics of Canada. MONTCALM AND WOLFE, penned by one of finest writers Canada has ever produced, is the the epic story of this battle told through the lives of the two generals, Wolfe and MOntcalm. The book is a dual biography of the men and their most famous battle, written by a master storyteller. What kind of life did they have before they took up arms? What were the two men really like? And, most importantly, what forces brought them to face each other in a battle that forged a nation. THERE IS A BLACK "CLOSEOUT/REMAINDER" MARK ON THE BOTTOM PAGE EDGES. Seller Inventory # 000263
