PRO Publications, London, 1994. 
189 pp, 4to (11 5/8" H), soft cover. ISBN1873162138 Color frontispiece, b&w illustrations. "For scholars of British diplomacy and international affairs, the records of the Foreign Office are an indispensible source. But the range of information and the sheer size of the records can be daunting to the first time user and to the increasing numbers of genealogists who attempt to trace individuals in the files of the diplomatic and consular correspondence. This book provides an introduction t o the records in all their variety and suggests appropriate classes to start with. It also examines the state papers foreign, the records of foreign policy which pre-date the modern Foreign Office records. These are more closely related to t h e l a t er papers than the dividing date of 1782 would suggest. This book also gives the would-be researcher practical guidance in using the registry systems created by the Foreign Office in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to locate sur vi vi ng pa p er s today." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - slight waviness to top.bottom of textblock, very light rubbing on rear cover, minor edge wear - at corners. Very Good+

5 Broughton, R. Peter. LOOKING UP: A HISTORY OF THE ROYAL ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY OF CANADA.
Toronto Dundurn 1994 1550022083 / 9781550022087 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
288 pp, oblong (8 3/4" H x 11 1/4" D). B&w photographs, reproductions. "One hundred and twenty-five years ago eight men met on December 1, 1868, to form the Toronto Astronomical Club. Among them were a tailor, a teacher and a cabinet-maker. How surprised these ordinary citizens would be to see that their little group has grown into an organization of over 3000 members in all parts of the country, in the United States and overseas. Twenty-two cities from St John's to Victoria have local chapters or 'Centres' of the RASC. Novices and naturalists, amateurs and professional scientists all play important roles in this remarkable success story. General readers will be surprised to find out what amateurs can learn from the sky, at meetings and through the Society's publications. Leaders of other volunteer organizations, educators looking for ways to promote greater appreciation of science, and local historians interested in the role of the Society in the life of their communities will find helpful ideas in this book. And members themselves will be better equipped to make decisions for the future through an appreciation of the development of the Society, its individual Centres and the men and women who have led them." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, two small shallow dents at top edge of rear board. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top rear edge and at bottom of spine, minor rubbing, 2" faint scratch on rear panel.

314 pp, 10" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, maps, floor plans, elevations, drawings, overlays. "For the first time, the architectural history of the town of Lexington and its t wo nationally distinguished campuses has been appraised in a scholarly fashion. This Valley of Virginia community together with Washington and Lee University and the Virginia Military Institute, presents exceptionally fine examples of American architectural styles from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth century. A remarkable number of architects of national reputation, including Thomas U. Walter, Alexander Jackson Davis, and Bertram G. Goodhue, completed important work here. This new study places the noteworthy buildings and their designers within the context of the architectural development of the Valley region and assesses their role in the evolution of the nation's styles. The volume is divided into three sections: the town, Washington and Lee, and VMI. In each, an essay on the history of the development of representative styles is followed by a photographic survey of the buildings." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.

NORTHERN ARMAGEDDON: THE BATTLE OF THE PLAINS OF ABRAHAM, MacLeod, D. Peter

Vancouver, British Columbia Douglas & McIntyre 2008 1553654129 / 9781553654124 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
379 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w and colour illustrations (maps, plates). "(T)he story of the Siege of Quebec and its climax, the Battle of the Plains of Abraham. A brief bloody affair, it brought a brutal end to the Seven Years' War in North America, the first truly global conflict - and the first truly modern one - waged against civilians and cities as well as soldiers and fortifications. This is a story of strategy, generals and geopolitics - and ordinary people. A British sailor, an American irregular, a French officer, a Huron warrior, a nun who tended the wounded; their impressions, captured in letters and journals, give us a new, more human view of the battle, one often absent from the history books. By day's end September 13 (1759), Wolfe was dead and Montcalm dying, the British victorious and the French on the run. France's New World empire was finished. The battle was over, but the musket volleys fired that morning continue to echo through our world. The hardships of North America's First Nations, the birth of Canada, and the rise of the United States can all be traced to that morning's actions. Our world was created on that field 250 years ago. Very small bump at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor rubbing, very small wrinkle at bottom of spine.

FICTION OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR:  A STUDY., Parfitt, George.

Faber and Faber, London, 1988. 
158 pp, 7 3/4" H, soft cover. ISBN 0571148964 "Out of the terrible years of the Great War came a good deal of fiction, much of it of importance. Not all was written by combatants. This fascinating study shows how established novelists tried to c ome to terms with events for which their previous fiction was no help. As for soldier novelists, it was some time before they could begin to make fiction out of the traumatic years. When they did, they produced a body of work that substa n t i a l l y a d ds to our understanding of what the war meant to those who fought in it, and of the society from which they came and with which they could never again feel at peace."
