Place Published: London
Publisher: Richard Bentley
Date Published: 1852
Edition: 1st
Binding: Hard Cover

First UK edition. 2 volumes, 4-3/4 x 7-1/2 inches, xx,[1]-293,[1],[2 ads]; [2 ads]; [4],[1]-294; [2 ads], Original green cloth with gilt and blind embossed spine and front cover, rebacked with original sunned spine laid down. Some ink staining on the front free endpaper, bumping to the corners, a few very minor spotting and smudge marks scattered periodically throughout the books. Overall, very good condition. The author and her husband came to Canada in 1832, and settled, first at Cobourg, then at Peterborough. This work is an account of the hardships of pioneer life in Canada, and the author makes known her intention of deterring well educated people intent on settling in the wilds of Canada from undertaking something for which they are totally unfit both by previous pursuits and by habit.
