Lord Durham 3 Parliamentary Papers Responses Collection

Place Published: London

Date Published: 1839
Edition: 1st Edition
Binding: No binding

Three (3) important and scarce Parliamentary Papers published between the nomination of Lord Durham as Governor General and High Commissioner to British North America after his resignation in September 1838; dealing with the Durham Report’s criticism and justification for their disagreement to this report. Lord Durham had a number of political enemies in both Great Britain and Canada They scrambled to respond to his report after the fact with Lord Durham not focus on these and his very large report submitted in February 1839 with the 5 appendices was being absorbed, understood and debated. These Parliamentary Papers responses were written in June, July and August of 1839. Lord Durham died about a year later on July 28, 1840. A fascinating insight to the many difficulties and challenges Lord Durham faced in publishing and supporting his famous report which led to a series of reforms and changes. These included uniting the two Canadas into a single colony, the Province of Canada, in 1841 (Act of Union) and the report also paved the way for responsible government.

Some edge open tears and paper toning, otherwise all in very good condition.
