1 Axelrod, Alan, commentary. Arrangements by Dan Fox. SONGS OF THE WILD WEST.
New York Metropolitan Musem of Art / Simon & Schuster 1991 0671747754 / 9780671747756 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
128 pp, oblong large 8vo (9 1/2" H x 10 3/4" D). Decorated endpapers, profusely illustrated in color and b&w with photographs, reproductions. "Nothing captures the spirit of the Old West better than the jaunty tunes and classic ballads the cowboys and settlers sang, songs richly represented in this visually stunning volume. Panoramic in scope, the 45 songs, coupled with works of art from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Cody, Wyoming, chronicle the stirring saga of westward expansion and reflect every facet of life during one of the most exciting periods in our nation's history. The lore of the West intrigued many artists, and the works featured include paintings and sculpture by Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell, and N.C. Wyeth, as well as a myriad of fascinating artifacts: saddles, spurs, guns, guitars, a stagecoach ticket, a Navajo blanket, and other objects that provide a vivid picture of life in the West. A lively and intriguing text further illuminates this bygone world, exploring the history of the songs, their lyrics, the accompanying art, and the development of the West. The music, arranged for beginning to intermediate musicians and accompanied by chords for the guitar or banjo, is suitable for piano, organ, violin, or recorder."

3 Donohue, Thomas and Donohue, Sylvia. With assistance from Thomas Brockehian. BORN LUCKY OR UNLUCKY.
Rutledge, Danbury, CT, (1998). 
203 pp, 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs. "...the exciting story of one brave man's experiences during World War II...From the moment the reader meets Tom Donohue, as a young tractor trailer driver in the Bronx, it is apparent that one day this will be a man with whom to reckon. The story then travels southward and the reader gets the opportunity to journey side by side with Tom as he makes his way through Air Force training in places like Pennsylvania, Texas and Wyoming, before being sent to Europe as a flight engineer and upper gunner. Then, in Europe, the reader witnesses the adventures, both in the air and on the ground, in such breathtaking and historic locales as Great Britain and Berlin, before the story finally returns Tom back home to the States, a war hero."

4 Mika, Nick and Mika, Helma. Introduction by Beth Hanna. Foreword By W. John McIntyre. SPLENDID HERITAGE: HISTORICAL BUILDINGS OF ONTARIO.
Belleville, Ontario Mika 1992 0921341504 / 9780921341505 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good+ 
144 pp, square (10 3/8" x 10 3/8"). Colour photographs. "(A) celebration of Ontario's heritage. Its many pictures provide a panoramic view of the province's architecture from the late 18th century to the Victorian era. Its text combines architectural description with the story of some of the people who built and used these buildings, including (no doubt) some local folkore along the way. In other words, it is not a book for scholars; but rather, a book intended for all people who love old buildings and a book which may help to inspire interest among those who may never have stopped to look at an old building before." Book is Fine. Dust jacket has very minor edge wrinkling.

Toronto Macmillan 1909 Reprint Hard Cover Good+ Good- John MacLellan. 
182 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). Map endpapers. Black, white and green illustrations. "When the thirteen colonies of America went to war for their independence, there were many colonists who declared for their King, George III. This is the story of one such group - the fierce and reviled Butler's Rangers, a Loyalist regiment which, from a base at Niagara, fought a series of courageous and bitter campaigns during the American Revolution, 1776 to 1783, for the King and for their homes in the State of New York. It is also the story of young Daniel Springer, of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., whose father was killed by the rebels early in the war. Daniel joined the Rangers and through his experiences we follow some of the most savage battles of the Revolution and meet the Loyalists who fought with courage and gallantry for their beliefs - staunch old Colonel John Butler, commander of the regiment; his dashing, ill-fated son, Captain Walter; Peter Ten Broeck, who declared for the King while his brother declared for the rebels; Joseph Brant, war chief of the Mohawks; 'Indian' Allen, hard-bitten frontiersman; and the Rangers' Indian allies, the Senecas, Mohawks, and Cayugas who were members of the Six Nations. Here is history that was also high adventure, sought and sustained by men of strong ideals." A fictionalized version written for the younger reader.
