1 Ashe, David and Burnell, Joyce. OAKVILLE STREET NAMES & LANDMARKS.
London, Ontario Burnell Creighton 2007 0978428803 / 9780978428808 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
168 pp, small 4to (10 1/4" H). B&w and colour photographs and reproductions. "This collection is based on the life's work of David Ashe, who while employed as a draftsperson with the Town of Oakville compiled a listing of legal survey plans and registry information on the streets of Oakville. Being a researcher at heart, he went further and spent countless hours of his spare time gathering the history behind Oakville's streets. Joyce Burnell has picked a selection of Ashe's street histories and has added several Oakville landmarks - some of which are not longer here. Add to this, interesting archival images - some never before seen - combined with newer colour photographs and you have an intriguing reflection of Oakville's unique history. With close to 100 street name histories and over 40 landmarks featured, these interesting vignettes make for an easy, enjoyable read. This book links Oakville's street names to local, regional, national and international people, places and things. With such a diverse selection and varied inspirations, you may be surprised!" Very small bump at top/bottom of spine, a few very small bumps at bottom edge of front board, tiny tear at bottom of rear hinge. Dust jacket has some light wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and bottom of front flap, tiny tear at bottom of rear hinge - archivally taped.

University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, 1997. 
283 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0807823341 B&w photographs, maps/battle plans, reproductions. "In the spring of 1864, in the vast scrub forest that spread south from Virginia's Rapidan and Rappahannock Rivers, Ulysse s S. Grant and Robert E. Lee met in battle for the first time. The Wilderness campaign of May 5-6 initiated an epic confrontation between these two commanders - one that would finally end, eleven months later, with Lee's surrender at Appomat t o x . T he contributors to this volume bring modern scholarship and fresh insight to bear on the issues and leaders of the Wilderness campaign. Their essays explore the campaign's background, for example, by training an often-revisionist lens on e xp ec ta t io ns among civilians in the North and South, morale among officers and soldiers in both armies, and the strategic plans of Lee and Grant. Other essays assess the shaky performance of Union cavalry leaders Philip H. Sheridan and Jame s H arr iso n W il s on, the controversial actions of Confederate corp commanders Richard S. Ewell and A.P.Hill, and the often overlooked service of Lewis A. Grant and his Vermont Brigade. Finally, two of the most famous elements of the fighting i n th e Wi lder ness - th e 'L ee to the Rear' episode and James Longstreet's flank attack - are reconstructed in impressive detail." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has some minor erinkling. Near Fine/Near Fine

DIRECTORY OF THE COUNTY OF PEEL FOR 1873-4., Lynch, John.
12 Lynch, John. DIRECTORY OF THE COUNTY OF PEEL FOR 1873-4.
Mississauga, Ontario Halton-Peel Branch O.G.S. 1998 077799871 Facsimile Edition. Soft cover in spiral Binding Near Fine 
141 pp, 9" H. B&w advertisements. Facsimile reprint of the 1874 edition published at the Brampton Progress and Chromatic Printing House. "This book is a compilation of Mr. John Lynch, Brampton, and contains the names of all persons on the assessment rolls for 1873, in the townships and villages in the County. It contains, besides, some exceedingly interesting historical notes of the early settlement of the district of which the present County of Peel was a portion. We read that Yonge street was surveyed in 1796, by Augustus Jones, and a number of extracts from his field-book discover that at that time the population was sparse in that beautiful route. Indeed it seems that in 1799 there were, in the Home District, only two hundred and twenty-four inhabitants. There are also a number of interesting exemplifications from the 'Court Book' of the County of York. We find parties fined for assault and battery during 1799 in amounts varying from 20 (Pounds) to 5 shillings. - On the 30th of December, 1815, Allan McNabb, Jr. had to apologize to the Bench for riding his horse on the foot path, and being pert and insolent to Wm. Chewitt. - The early settlement of the townships in the county is also briefly described." From 'The Globe' of the 6th of April, 1874. There is some blurring to portions of the text, mainly in the early pages but, except in a few cases, it remains legible. Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor corner wear.

Now, in the first complete biography in decades, Je ffry Wert reexamines the life of the famous soldier to give us Custer in all his colorful complexity. Although remembered today as the loser at Little Big Horn, Custer was the victor of many cavalry engagements in the Civil War. He played a n i m p o r tant role in several battles in the Virginia theater of war, including the Shenandoah campaign. Renowned for his fearlessness in battle, he was always in front of his troops, leading the charge. His men were fiercely loyal to him, and h e w as h ig hl y regarded by Sheridan and Grant as well....But when he was assigned to the Indian wars on the Plains, life changed drastically for Custer....(The author) carefully examines the events around the defeat at Little Big Horn, drawin g o n rec ent ar cha eol ogical findings and the latest scholarship. His evenhanded account of the dramatic battle puts Custer's performance, and that of his subordinates, in proper perspective." Very light wrinkling at top of spine.
