du Maréchal de Lévis
( 12 vols., Montreal and

P.A.C. Casgrain's edition is broadly accurate,
though the transcription is not meticulous and
there are occasional serious misreadings. In gener-

Doughty A. G. Doughty with G. W. Parmelee, The Siege
of Quebec and the Battle of the Plains of Abra-
ham
( 6 vols., Quebec, 1901). A curious produc-
tion, half history, half collection of documents, con-
taming some irrelevancies and inconsequentialities;
the documents are absolutely indispensable to the
student of the time, but the narrative is less im-
portant.

value.

Wolfe
( London, 1864). The first biography of
Wolfe, and still far from the worst.
