61. A history of Newfoundland from the English, colonial, and foreign records A history of Newfoundland from the English, colonial, and foreign records Prowse, D. W. (Daniel Woodley) Newfoundland and Labrador--History; Newfoundland and Labrador--Colonization; Great Britain--Colonies--America; Prowse, D. W. (Daniel Woodley)--Correspondence "Third edition, with additions by James R. Thorns and F. Burnham Gill, bringing the record to 1907 and enclosing a brief biography of Daniel Woodley Prowse" (title page). Published in 1971, this book follows what are believed to be Prowse's ideas for a 3rd edition which was not completed in his time (Preface). -- Prowse's History of Newfoundland (1895) remains to this day the most famous account of the colony's history. Mixing detailed primary source research with his own extensive collection of anecdotes, Prowse presents the story of Newfoundland chronologically by reigning British monarch and with an eye to the influence its development had on England. The overriding theme is the march of progress, that Newfoundland had overcome its problems and was bound for inevitable prosperity. -- This edition is similar to the 2nd, in that it omits the bibliography, index and many of the illustrations included in the 1895 edition, as well as the chapters on Saint Pierre and Miquelon, the history of Labrador, the railway, the telegraph and the Fisheries Commission. The supplement on church history is also gone. Appended to the new text is an extensive collection of correspondence detailing Prowse's unsuccessful efforts to bring the 3rd edition to fruition.
