Montreal: Imprimerie du Journal le Pays, 1866. 8vo. Sewn Wrappers. Near Fine 11 pp., double-column; leaves uncut along the top edge. Lord Carnarvon (1831-1890) was Secretary of State for the Colonies and, in the same year as the publication of this booklet, presided over the Westminster Conference. The following year, he introduced the British North America Act into the House of Commons, which Bill gave birth to the Canadian Confederation. Bearing the names of twenty-one M.P.P.'s of Lower Canada, this is an important primary source document in the history of Confederation in general, and in particular of the perspective of the Francophone community. "Nous avons dit que le peuple de cette province n'a jamais eu occasion de se prononcer sur le projet de confederation; a l'appui de cet avance nous allons indiquer les phases par lesquelles la question a passe avant d'en arriver a son etat actuel." (p. 3) A very nice copy indeed. Scarce. cf. The Macmillan Dictionary of Canadian Biography, p. 132; DNB XXVI, 195. Lande, First Supplement, S2517.
