I confine these notes to the most accurate and available books and essays on the history of Canada.
For the French regime consult.—Jacques Cartier’s Voyages, by Joseph Pope (Ottawa, 1889), Charlevoix’s History and General Description of New France, translated by J. Gilmary Shea (New York, 1868); Cours d’histoire du Canada, by Abbe Ferland (Quebec, 1861); Histoire du Canada, by F.X. Garneau (4th ed., Montreal, 1882); F. Parkman’s series of admirable histories of the French regime (Boston, 1865—1884), The Story of Canada (Nations’ Series, London, New York and Toronto, 1896), by J.G. Bourinot, necessarily written in a light vein, is largely devoted to the days of French rule, and may profitably be read on that account in connection with this later book, chiefly devoted to British dominion.
For the history of Acadia, consult.—Acadia, by James Hannay (St. John, N.B., 1879); History of Nova Scotia, by Thomas C. Haliburton (Halifax, N.S., 1829). A valuable compilation of annals is A History of Nova Scotia or Acadie, by Beamish Murdoch (Halifax, 1867). Builders of Nova Scotia, by J.G. Bourinot (Toronto, and “Trans. Roy. Soc. Can.,” 1900), contains many portraits of famous Nova Scotians down to confederation, and appendices of valuable historical documents.
