William F.E. Morley, The Atlantic Provinces.- Canadian Local Histories to 1950. Volume I. Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 1967.

This, the first of three volumes - Quebec (1971) and Ontario and the Canadian North (1978) were volumes two and three - was begun in 1955 when local history first attracted William Morley's interest. The work was sponsored by the Centennial Commission. The centennial year 1967 marks something of a watershed in Canadian bibliography and after that date the number of published bibliographies shows a dramatic increase.
