THE MARITIME RIGHTS MOVEMENT, 1919-1927: A STUDY IN CANADIAN REGIONALISM., Forbes, Ernest R.
9 Forbes, Ernest R. THE MARITIME RIGHTS MOVEMENT, 1919-1927: A STUDY IN CANADIAN REGIONALISM.
Montreal McGill - Queen's University Press 1979 0773503218 / 9780773503212 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good 
246 pp, 9 3/8" H. Dark blue boards with lighter blue and white lettering on spine and front board - no dust jacket (as issued). Map. "(T)he first full account of a major social and political movement of the interwar years in Canada: the campaign for 'Maritime Rights' which erupted in the Atlantic provinces after World War I. (T)races the history of the movement from its origins in the decline in relative status and influence of the Maritimes that accompanied the rise of the West and the growing dominance of the Central Canadian metropolises. Maritimers saw their political influence reduced, the underpinnings of their economy - especially in the critical areas of tariffs, freight rates, and subsidies - whittled away, and Canada defined in terms that seemed to exclude them. Adopting a strategy characteristic of the progressive movements of the period, they attempted through organization and agitation to restore their position. Farmers, fishermen, manufacturers, and organized labour articulated their demands, through the provincial press, boards of trade, union locals, educational conferences, and mass delegations to Ottawa. Although their efforts were largely defeated by the conflicting interests of stronger regions, and by the King government's adroitness in defusing protest through a policy of study and delay, the author believes that the aroused Maritimers had succeeded in establishing their difficulties in the public's mind as a national problem." Light edge wear, tear at top of last index page archivally taped, light wrinkling on page leaf 123/124.

BANNERS IN THE AIR:  THE EIGHTH OHIO VOLUNTEERS AND THE SPANISH-AMERICAN WAR., Hard, Curtis V.  Edited by Robert H. Ferrell.
14 Hard, Curtis V. Edited by Robert H. Ferrell. BANNERS IN THE AIR: THE EIGHTH OHIO VOLUNTEERS AND THE SPANISH-AMERICAN WAR.
The Kent State University Press, Kent, Ohio, (1988). 
147 pp, large 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photos. "Here, in short compass, is a lively, highly personal, and compelling account of what the war was like to the soldiers....Hard's group (Hard was the colonel of the Eight Ohio Volunteer) was the only Ohio regiment to go to Cuba. The men saw no combat action because they arrived only a few days before the armistice of Santiago, but the value of Hard's account lies elsewhere - in the story he tells of the men in his regiment. He recounts the mechanics of mobilization, camp life, the pace and problems of campaigning, and the traditional enemy of soldierly life before this century - illness. Seventy-two of the 1,325 men in the regiment died from malaria or other illness in Cuba or aboard ship or at Montauk or in hospitals in the United States or at home. Hard's narrative is enhanced by over thirty photographs - many taken by and preserved in the personal album of Chief Musician William R. Palmer, bandmaster of the E ighth...

15 Heming, Arthur. THE DRAMA OF THE FORESTS: ROMANCE AND ADVENTURE.
Toronto S.B. Gundy 1924 First Canadian Edition. Hard Cover Good+ No Jacket Arthur Heming. 
324 pp, 7 3/4" H. 14 colour plates, including frontispiece (collated). "(I) travelled twenty-three times through various parts of the vast northern woods, between Maine and Alaska, and covered thousands upon thousands of miles by canoe, pack-train, snowshoes, bateau, dog-train, buck-board, timber-raft, prairie-schooner, lumber-wagon, and 'alligator'. (B)ack again I went at all seasons of the year to encamp in that great timber-land that sweeps from the Atlantic to the Pacific. thus it has taken me thirty-three years to gather the information this volume contains - (but) I wish to explain that in compliance with the wishes of the leading actors - who actually lived their parts of this story - fictitious names have been given to the principal characters and to the principal trading posts, lakes, and rivers herein depicted. Furthermore, in order to give the reader a more interesting, complete, and faithful description of the daily and the yearly life of the forest dwellers as I have observed it, I have taken the liberty of weaving together the more interesting facts I have gathered - both first- and second-hand - into one continuous narrative as though it all happened in a single year. And in order to retain all the primitive local colour, the unique costumes, and the fascinating romance of the fur-trade days as I witnessed them in my twenties - though much of the life has already passed away - the scene is set to represent a certain year in the early (1890s)." Separation between some page gatherings (mainly at illustration locations) - pages are firm in binding, very slight bump at top corner of boards, wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor shelf soiling on bottom of text block, three very small stains on top of text block, minor rubbing on boards. Book is protected in a stiff mylar sleeve.
