Three-quarter chestnut leather over brown marbled paper on boards. Leather title label on spine. Printed at the Royal Acadian School (by Edmund Ward). Foldout map of Nova Scotia, Cape Breton, Prince Edward Island, and part of New Brunswick is perfect - no tears or stains. Minor rubbing at the edges of boards and top of spine. Hinges are strong and tight. Bottom corner of page 85 is torn off (not affecting text), and the rear free endpaper has been torn out. This book has very little foxing, but the part of each page where the text is appears darker due to "offsetting". This book by Thomas C. Haliburton (known for his fictional character, Sam Slick, from "The Clockmaker") contains a lot of interesting details about Nova Scotia. Highlights include: Plants and animals, Indigenous tribes and their customs (including four pages of words from the Micmac language), descriptions of several Nova Scotia communities, education, and a detailed chapter on trade. This book is on consignment, so no discounts apply. It will be sent with tracking and insurance - expect a request for "extra shipping."
