Document Description
TitleA history of Newfoundland from the English, colonial, and foreign records
AuthorProwse, D. W. (Daniel Woodley)
PublisherEyre and Spottiswoode
Place of PublicationLondon
Date1896
Description2nd edition, revised and corrected. 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 has been corrected and updated. 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 has been incorporated into the main text.
