AMPLE MANSIONS:  THE VICEREGAL RESIDENCES OF THE CANADIAN PROVINCES., Hubbard, R.H.  Foreword by Her Excellency, Jeanne Sauve.
2 Hubbard, R.H. Foreword by Her Excellency, Jeanne Sauve. AMPLE MANSIONS: THE VICEREGAL RESIDENCES OF THE CANADIAN PROVINCES.
Ottawa University of Ottawa Pres 1989 0776602772 / 9780776602776 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good+ 
237 pp, oblong (9 1/4" H x 12 1/4" D). Profusely illustrated with b&w and colour photographs, repro-ductions. "The viceregal residences of the Canadian provinces mirror the idiosyncrasies of their inhabitants, and the tastes and talents of the architects, builders, gardeners, furniture makers and decorators who created them. In 'Ample Mansions' you will see the finest - and sometimes the worst - of Canadian style. There's no shortage of pomp in our viceregal history, but Dr. Hubbard's scholarly and sprightly text goes behind the scenes too, where there's plenty of room for rot and mildew, plugged drains and erratic staff. There are ample mansions crumbling from neglect, ample mansions consumed in conflagrations, ample mansions falling victim to political spats - and ample mansions rising in new splendour." Fine book. Dust jacket has three small areas of minor rubbing on rear panel.

MORRICE:  A GREAT CANADIAN ARTIST REDISCOVERED., Laing, G. Blair.  Introduction by Jean Sutherland Boggs.
3 Laing, G. Blair. Introduction by Jean Sutherland Boggs. MORRICE: A GREAT CANADIAN ARTIST REDISCOVERED.
Toronto McClelland & Stewart 1984 0771045689 / 9780771045684 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good James Wilson Morrice. 
224 pp, 11 3/4" H. Profusely illustrated with colour reproductions. "James Wilson Morrice is one of the twentieth century's most talented and lyrical painters. Whether depicting a Quebec village in winter, a Paris cafe, or a North African market place, Morrice's vibrant colours and perfectly balanced compositions capture his subjects in a suspended timelessness. The story of (his) life is no less colourful than his paintings. The young James's passion for art took him in 1890, at the age of twenty-five, from his wealthy Montreal background to Paris. It was here, among other artists such as Matisse, and writers such as Somerset Maugham and Arnold Bennett, that he felt a true kinship. And it was not long before Morrice's paintings were seen in the great Salons of Paris, and sent to the Montreal Art Association and the Canadian Art Club in Toronto for exhibition. Laing's fascinating account reveals the complexity of Morrice's genius and gives a definitive picture of James Wilson Morrice - the man, the artist, and his work." Slight waviness at top/bottom edges of text block. Dust jacket has light toning on spine, flap-folds and some edges; one small edge tear archivally taped; minor edge wrinkling.
