King Louis XV of France was in conversation with Voltaire when he received the news that Canada was no longer French, but British. Aware of his sovereign's anguish, Voltaire spoke to him consolingly: " After all , Sire, what have we lost - a few acres of snow/" To read this expansive book is to recognize Voltaire's wry consolation as one of the greatest understatements in History. The edges of the text block are lightly marked.
