1 Mathews, Hazel C. Addendum by Mrs. Frances (Robin) Ahern. OAKVILLE AND THE SIXTEEN: THE HISTORY OF AN ONTARIO PORT.
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1994, reprinted with corrections. 
521 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0802018203 B&w illustrations. "Mrs. Mathews, descendant of a pioneer Oakville family, traces the development of a typical Ontario lake port and pictures social life at the various stag es of the town's development. The history is complete, beginning with the earliest settlement and ending at a period at which Oakville has changed its character completely. It is based on wide research, begun out of genuine interest and curio s i t y , into a part of the province about which very little has been written. Mrs. Mathews has combed such primary sources as family papers, local newspapers, and archive documents. She has given an intimate picture of the people, houses, and p ub li c bu il dings of Oakville, and of activities along "The Sixteen", the creek which has been so important in its life. But Mrs. Mathews does more than this. She places the development of the village and town in its proper setting in Ontario's his tor y, wi th the result that the reader learns not only about Oakville but about the social history of Southern Ontario over a long period." Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling at top/bottom of hinges and flap-folds, soft crease at top of rea r fl ap, ver y mi nor rubbing. Fine/Very Good+
