Toronto Ryerson Press 1959 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good- Good- 
204 pp, 8 5/8" H. B&w photographs. "Urged many times to write the story of his life, Mr. Robert Campbell, now in his eighty-eighth year, finally acceded to the request. The result is this very readable book of reminiscence, rich in humour and history, adventure and anecdote, told by a master storyteller. In a breezy and colloquial style the author tells of his experiences in and around Banff, of his political life, experiences in the army during World War I, and his encounters with important visitors in the Canadian Rockies. This is not only a fascinating story, but a valuable record of early days when the Rockies were just beginning to attract attention as a tourist centre for the world." A few scattered very small light stains on page 49, light edge wear, small bump at three corners, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear/wrinkling, creases at top of rear panel, several edge tears archivally taped, light rubbing/soiling.

A LONG COOL DAY IN HELL., Kersh, Gerald.
2 Kersh, Gerald. A LONG COOL DAY IN HELL.
London Heinemann 1965 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
163 pp, 8vo (8" H). "Lily Star Clarke is a veritable Little Snowdrop, as innocently sweet as can be. Yet it was she who ran down Louie Cagliaro and broke the story that killed him. And she it is who now sets out to crack the mystery of the reluctant millionaire, E. Vere Reeve. For years this enigmatic figure has lived as a recluse, protected from the Press and public by the most efficient security systems human ingenuity can devise. Nobody knows the secret of his millions; nobody knows anything about his personality or habits. Few have even seen him. Yet Lily Star Clarke has a limpid candour which tempts people to confide in her, and, armed with only this and her own transparent beauty, she takes up the millionaire's fantastic trail. This characteristic and nightmarish Kershian fable has all the snap and tang of his sardonic wit and brilliant invention." Book is slightly cocked, previous owner's name stamp at top of both pastedowns slight dust soiling on top of text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wear, several tiny edge tears - some with creases, crease at top edge of rear panel.
