3 Atwood, Margaret. THE ANIMALS IN THAT COUNTRY.
Oxford University Press, Toronto, 1968, (1973 reprint). 
69 pp, 8vo, soft cover. "(Margaret Atwood's) poetry explores the real world and a haunting private universe. Both are seen by a young woman totally committed to the search for a viable human world, one capable of containing its opposites: of reco nciling the individual's inner and outer worlds, the chaos and the longing for order, the isolation of lovers, the craving for life and the fact of death. The poems in this new collection are less subjective than Miss Atwood's earlier on e s , a n d t h e range of themes is wider, but they contain the same tension and give the same impression of a 'quiet Mata Hari...who pits herself against the ordered, too clean world like an arsonist'." Interior - soft crease at top corner of te xt bl o ck , ot h er wi se clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light edgewear/rubbing, light hinge creases, soft crease to top corner of covers and top edge of rear cover. Good sound reading copy.

218 pp, 6 7/8" H. No publication date, but an early edition as there is no mention of the First World War. Map endpapers and decorated title page. Profusely illustrated with colour and b&w maps, plus 10 plates depicting coins. "The extent of the land and sea that (this book) covers, between the extremes of Algiers and Samoa, is immense in latitude and longitude; while in points of history it ranges from the oldest to the newest civilisation; as suggested by Karnak, or the new capital of Australia, Canbena (sic). Moreover, in accord with the general idea of these map-books, the effect of the map in illustrating history, the growth and multiplicity of peoples and cities, and the vast possibilities of unworked regions, is kept in sight throughout these pages. The record includes the wars that have passed, from Napoleon's Campain in Egypt of 1798 and General Gordon's last stand at Khartoum, to the battles of Spion Kop and Colenso, and the sieges of Ladysmith and Mafeking in the late South African War. It covers the routes of the great travellers, Mungo Park, Livingstone and Stanley; Stuart, Burke and Wills; and it touches at Vailima in order to recall Robert Louis Stevenson and his South Sea experiences, at the end of his days, as they are pictured by his Samoa book of 1892..." Includes "A Brief Survey of the Coinage of Africa and Australasia" by G.C. Brooke, "A Gazetteer of Towns and Places in Africa and Australasia having a Literary or Historic Interest" and an Index.

316 pp, 8 3/8" H. B&w photographs. "(T)he powerful and often thrilling story of a man who daily enters that lonely region beyond the speed of sound. A narrative of needle-nosed ships flying at blistering speeds, it is also the moving testament of a man risking his life to push back the frontiers of scientific knowledge. Like St.-Exupery, Bridgeman is capable of describing the vastness and beauty of the skies. But as America's foremost experimental test pilot, he is constantly aware of the multitude of technical information which he is called upon to use at any given moment. After the war, Bill Bridgeman left the Navy a restless man. Seeking action, he joined Douglas Aircraft as an engineering test pilot. Soon he was asked to take over the final stages of the Skyrocket testing program. The Skyrocket, a javelin-shaped experimental ship, was a challenge to Bridgeman. The story of his day-by-day life with the plane is the substance of (this book)."

16 Chambers, W. CHAMBERS'S HISTORICAL AND MISCELLANEOUS QUESTIONS WITH ANSWERS, EMBRACING HISTORY, SCIENCE, LITERATURE, ARTS, &C. (CHAMBER'S).
William and Robert Chambers, London, 1866. 
In two sections: Historical - 204 pp; Miscellaneous - 209 pp., small 8vo, hard cover - no dust jacket. Small b&w illus within text. "The present work is designed to fulfil an important purpose in EDUCATION - that of bringing clearly into view the leading facts which are supposed to be gained through a long course of instruction. Without proposing to supersede the elementary books usually employed, it offers a certain test of what is presumed to have been previously learned. With such a work in their hands, Schoolmasters, Tutors, Governesses, or Parents, may at once satisfy themselves as to the degree of knowledge on a variety of subjects attained by the young persons under their charge, and for whose intellectual culture they feel a special interest. At the same time - in this age of Competitive Examination - the work offers to candidates for Official Appointments the means of readily and perspicuously calling to remembrance answers to such questions in History, Science, Art, Literature, and General Knowledge, as are likely to be asked of them; thereby, perhaps, saving the reperusal of a multiplicity of books which they would otherwise have to consult and patiently study. As regards the Answers to the Questions, every effort has been made to render them brief and of easy acquisition, in regular consecutive order according to subjects; while the facts they present, based on the most recent authorities, are just those which, from their interest and importance, are expected to be less or more borne on the mind of every 'well-informed person' of either sex." Interior - browning to pages/endpapers, some light 'thumbing' to margins, light brown stain at bottom corner of preliminaries - overall sound with no writing/names, etc. Exterior - light/moderate edge wear/rubbing, light corner wear, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, dust staining to text block edges, light scuffing to spine.

"At the age of twenty-two, Archibald McDonald was responsible for the health and well-being of all ninety-four members of the 1813 party of Lord Selkirk's ill-fated Red River settlement. (He) responded to this heavy burden as he did to all the other difficulties that he experienced in his life as adminstrator and fur trader in the days of the Red River settlement and the early history of the Pacific Northwest - with an engaging combination of practicality, good humor, and hard work. Drawing extensively from McDonald's letters, reports, and diaries, (the author) lets the subject of this biography tell his own story: of the enmity between the Red River settlers and the violent, vindictive Nor-Westers, who were determined to destroy the Red River colony; of his years of service in the Hudson's Bay Company, where he became commander of forts on the Lower Fraser and Columbia Rivers; and of the long canoe voyages through the untamed Canadian wilderness."
