Thomas Chandler Haliburton (1796-1865) was one of the first major Canadian authors. Born in Nova Scotia, he qualified as a lawyer and became a judge, while writing a number of books on history, politics and farm management. However his fame comes from a regular column in the Novascotian, a weekly newspaper, from 1835. The comic views of 'Sam Slick of Slicksville', commenting on the colonial life of Nova Scotia, mocking Canadians and their relations with Americans and British, were issued as a collection in 1836, as 'The Clockmaker, or the Sayings and Doings of Samuel Slick of Slicksville'. It became Canada's first international bestseller, prompting two more in the series.

A plan of the French fortification of Louisbourg, drawn during the first British capture of the settlement, during the War of the Austrian Succession. It was handed back in the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle of 1748, but was targeted again during the British advance on Quebec, during the French and Indian Wars, when this map was published. Richard Gridley (1710-96) was born in Boston, Massachusetts; although he worked for the British Army at the two attacks on Louisbourg and at the Fall of Quebec, he sided with the colonists during the American Revolution. As Chief Engineer in the New England Provincial Army he fought at Bunker Hill, then became Chief Engineer (artillery) of the Continental Army, after which he retired in 1781 at age 70. A monument to Gridley at Canton Corner has an inscribed quote by General Washington: ''I know of no man better fitted to be Chief Engineer than General Gridley''.

Nimna Himna
Nimna Himna called by the Men Old Greedy
On Stone by J. Brandard, from the original Drawing by Captain Ross [c.1835]
Coloured lithograph, sheet 140 x 105mm (5½ x 4"). Trimmed.
A woman from the Boothia Peninsula, Nunavut, Canada, described by John Ross in his 'Narrative of a Second Voyage in Search of a North-west Passage' (1835), from which this print originates. In his narrrative, Ross writes that Nimna Himna 'was a constant visitor to the ship, and generally carried off something which she had picked up. On one occasion, when coming up the ladder, she was tumbled off by the surgeon, and falling on her back, pretended to faint; from which, although all the doctor could do could not recover her, she was restored by the offer of an empty tin case, which had contained preserved meat: a stratagem which she subsequently tried more than once without success. She was about sixty years of age, five feet two inches high, extremely ill-looking, and decidedly the most disgusting of the whole tribe'. Ross was forced by ice to stop at the Boothia peninsula (which he named after his patron Sir Felix Booth) for four years while searching for the north-west passage.
