Forest and other gleanings : the fugitive writings of Catharine Parr Traill by Catherine Parr Strickland Traill( )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Forest and Other Gleanings reclaims for the contemporary reader a number of stories and sketches written by Catharine Parr Traill after her emigration to Canada in 1832. While most of the pieces collected here appeared in magazines in Britain, the United States, and Canada, a few have been drawn from archival holdings and edited here for their first appearance in print." "Taken together, they offer a richer and fuller picture of Traill's interests and preoccupations than has heretofore been available to Canadianists and literary students. As well, they present fresh evidence of her range and virtuosity as a writer. Traill herself envisioned and executed several collections of sketches, letters, and stories that had the misfortune of not making it into print. Her "sequel" to The Backwoods of Canada apparently died in dismemberment, a few pieces from it appearing here and there, while later collections with titles like "Forest Gleanings" and "Under the Pines" did not find publication in book form."--Jacket

"FitzGibbon ... drew the title and ten floral designs, one after the other, on the same borrowed stone. The Toronto firm William Chewett printed the lithographs. At home through much of 1867-68, she painted 5,000 sheets in 16 opaque colours, aided by her three daughters and two young women from a Toronto painting school for ladies operated by the wife of artist Hoppner Meyer. Meanwhile Traill wrote complementary text, finishing with the preface in December 1868. The first edition, bound in green or reddish-brown cloth, had an uncoloured 1868 title, 86 pages of text, and ten plates. It appeared in January 1869 and sold out by March." -- Alexander Globe, "The Story of 'Canadian Wildflowers'" (2015)
