Nineteenth-century Cape Breton : a historical geography by Stephen J Hornsby( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stephen Hornsby examines the development of nineteenth-century Cape Breton in light of two broad patterns of regional development: agricultural settlement and the exploitation of raw materials and staples. He focuses on the impact of Scottish immigration on the island's settlement and agricultural development, and on the role of mercantile and industrial capital in developing Cape Breton's two great staple industries, cod fishing and coal mining. He also outlines the reasons for the massive exodus from Cape Breton during the late nineteenth century. The intersection of these two patterns of development gave rise to a distinctive regional geography. Over the course of a hundred years, a complex mosaic of different settlements, economies, and cultures emerged on the island. While the details and circumstances of these developments were unique to the island, elements of the Cape Breton experience were found in other areas of Maritime Canada. Hornsby suggests that the historical geography of this small, peripheral island offers a simple, somewhat stark encapsulation of some of the salient developments in the rest of settled Canada during the nineteenth century
New England and the Maritime provinces : connections and comparisons by Stephen J Hornsby( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of original essays offers new perspectives on the relationship between New England and the Maritimes, a relationship that has been historically important for centuries and remains crucial to the neighbouring regions. While the main focus is historical, the authors come from a variety of disciplines, including anthropology, geography, folklore, and environmental studies. Comparative methods are used with a careful - though not uncritical - application of the "borderlands" approach."--Jacket
Surveyors of empire : Samuel Holland, J.W.F. Des Barres, and the making of the Atlantic Neptune by Stephen J Hornsby( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"British imperial power was greatly bolstered by new techniques in surveying and map-making during the eighteenth century. Well before James Cook sailed for the Pacific in 1768, British army engineers working on the coastline from Quebec to Rhode Island had set new scientific standards for cartography that would assist the British in mapping future conquests. Surveyors of Empire explores the groundbreaking work of these engineers, which formed the basis of The Atlantic Neptune, a four-volume hydrographic atlas that stands as a monument of European Enlightenment science. Using research from both sides of the Atlantic, Stephen Hornsby examines the development of British military cartography in North America during and after the Seven Years War, as well as advancements in military and scientific equipment used in surveying. At the same time, he follows the land speculation of two leading surveyors, Samuel Holland and J.F.W. Des Barres, and the publication history of The Atlantic Neptune. Richly illustrated with images from The Atlantic Neptune and earlier maps, Surveyors of Empire is an insightful account of the relationship between science and imperialism, and the British shaping of the Atlantic world."--Publisher's website
