Louisbourg Bibliography

This section records those items contained in the McLennan Louisbourg File in the Nova Scotia Collection of the James McConnell Library. The items in this file are not catalogued, therefore they will be recorded as they are presently arranged. Items in each of the four drawers are arranged differently, this arrangement is explained in an introduction to each drawer.

McLennan Louisbourg File, Drawer No.1, Louisbourg documents
Contained in the files in this drawer are transcriptions of original documents pertaining to Louisbourg. These are hand transcriptions which were done in the late 1800's and early 1900's, mainly by John Stewart McLennan and his daughter, Katharine. The McLennans travelled to England, France, and the United States in search of original documents which would assist Mr. McLennan in writing his book, Louisbourg From Its Foundation to Its Fall 1713 - 1758. These transcriptions are considered by authorities to be accurate and are a valuable addition to the Nova Scotia Collection. Files in this drawer are arranged alphabetically by subject. The transcriptions within each are ordered, and are recorded here as such.
