G. Smith at Chatham, Miramichi, New Brunswick, from one of the original copies printed by Joseph Howe at Halifax in 1832. Hb, 288pp. Robert Cooney (1800-1870) was a native of Dublin, Ireland, who emigrated to the Miramichi in 1824. While employed at Newcastle as a clerk with the lumber and merchandising firm of Fiddes & Smiths, he was a witness to the Great Miramichi Fire of 1825. Later, while engaged as an editorial assistant to James A. Pierce, the proprietor of the Chatham Gleaner, he gathered the data needed to write his "Compendious History." The book is divided into the following sections: Introduction (pp. 1-13), General Description (pp. 14-24), Northumberland County (pp. 25-126), Kent County (pp. 127-160), Gloucester County (pp. 161-226), Natural History (pp. 227-280), and District of Gaspé (pp. 281-288). While some have written disparagingly of Cooney's biases and limitations as an interpreter of events, he was a well educated man of exceptional ability, and his history contains a great deal of information which is unavailable elsewhere. It is also noteworthy for its literary style, the descriptions of the architecture of the buildings of the time being examples of his writing at its most memorable. Apart from a copy of the extremely rare first edition of Cooney's work, the 1896 reprint is the most-sought-after item for collections pertaining to the history of the Miramichi and the rest of northern New Brunswick.
