Rare lithograph with a touch of hand colour. Printed area 440 x 345mm. Surface wear and soiling.
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.
