Book Condition: Very Good


236 pages. By no means a standard travel narrative; all events of the journey that are mentioned are directly related to theological discourse. This reads like a very long tract; the author was a Methodist preacher. Born in 1798, the author emmigrated from Ireland to New Brunswick in 1843 and settled Collinsville (now Garnett Settlement). This book was prepared after Collins "came home from my visit to my native land, Ireland, and to Scotland, my forefathers' birthplace, and to England, where many of the branches of the family are now scattered - and came back to my adopted land, Saint John, New Brunswick - a place ever near and dear to my heart - in symmetry and oneness with the land where I was twice born - human and divine." Scarce: Worldcat records only one copy [Acadia], ESTC none. Curling to corners, light soiling to a few pages but generally very good, the thin wraps have survived exceptionally well.
