Never thought I’d see a snow day in sunny Tsawwassen or that the school would be closed because of it! Thankfully I have my own antiquarian copy of Pilgrim’s Progress and all of Owen’s works to keep me company. Its funny to think that I found this copy of Pilgrim’s in the basement of a well-known bookstore in Victoria a few years ago and that only a little while later I’d be hunting down Puritan rare books as a day job. I remember being so overjoyed when I found this one old book, and now I get to work with a whole collection. #thankful #libraryshelfie #personallibrary #mylibrary #johnbunyan #pilgrimsprogress #johnowen #antiquarianbooks

And tonight’s #illustration is from a book of West Country Rhymes (one of the more surreal literary treasures in my collection!) but seemed apt because I fell off of my diet wagon yesterday and today has been an attempt to get back on track (despite sampling craft beers @hunter_sons with my much beloved!)

#Onthisday in 1633 the diarist and ‘father of the modern Royal Navy’ Samuel Pepys was born. He helped transform the service into a global powerhouse and here he reflects on its state in 1679 and his own ideas for improvement.

Eusèbe Senécal (1833-1902) a dirigé l'une des plus importantes entreprises d'édition, d'impression et de reliure à Montréal au 19e siècle. Outre la publication du "Journal de l'Instruction publique", de "L'Écho du Cabinet de lecture paroissial" et de la "Revue canadienne", on lui doit des centaines d'ouvrages à caractère littéraire, biographique, juridique et religieux. Son oeuvre éditoriale la plus remarquable est sans aucun doute le "Dictionnaire généalogique des familles canadiennes" de Cyprien Tanguay en sept volumes (1871-1890). Propriétaire et éditeur du journal "La Minerve" depuis 1892, l'entreprise Eusèbe Senécal & Fils (devenue Eusèbe Senécal & Compagnie en 1897) connaît de sérieuses difficultés financières et doit réduire ses activités. Deux ans avant son décès, Senécal publie "Les Soirées du Château de Ramezay" (1900), oeuvre collective des membres de l'École littéraire de Montréal, où figurent les premières poésies d'Émile Nelligan.
