104 O'Flaherty, Patrick. THE ROCK OBSERVED: STUDIES IN THE LITERATURE OF NEWFOUNDLAND.

222 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs, reproductions, maps. "(A) study of how Newfoundland has been pereceived over the centuries by the islanders themselves and by outsiders. (This book) offers an integrated survey of Newfoundland literature, culture, and history. It illustrates the forces that have made Newfoundland a special place and Newfoundlanders a special people, 'a breed apart'. Against a background of political, economic, and cultural history, Patrick O'Flaherty submits the conflicting literary impressions of his island to a searching critical analysis. He finds the writings of explorers, missionaries, settlers, adventurers, novelists, and poets to be limited, or enlivened, by their own characters and preconceptions. There emerges a sympathetic but unsentimental picture of Newfoundland and its people, informed throughout by O'Flaherty's keen awarenes, based on an outport upbringing, of what Newfoundland has been and is." Faint erased pencil marks and two small light ink stains on front free endpaper. Dust jacket has very light browning on rear panel and on flaps.

Toronto University of Toronto Press 1964 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good 
555 pp, 9 1/4" H. Map endpapers, b&w photographs, tables (several fold-out). "(P)resents a detailed chronicle of the fascinating experiments in aerial flight and with hydrofoil craft conducted by Dr. (Alexander Graham) Bell and his engineering assistant and collaborators, Frederick Walker (Casey) Baldwin, at Baddeck, Nova Scotia. Bell was the chairman and Baldwin the chief engineer of the Aerial Experiment Association (1907-9), a group founded, inspired, and financed by Mrs. Bell: the successes of the Association, were based largely on logical, step-by-step development under the guiding genius of Dr. Bell. The detailed, day-by-day records of the group's operations kept by Dr. Bell make abundantly clear that his scientific and technical contributions, and his guidance and criticism, were of great importance to the development of aviation and hydrofoils. His keen analytical and deductive mind was at its best in analysing failures and propounding remedies, as in the suggestion of the aileron following the crash of the 'Red Wing'. Dr. Parkin provides here a brief description of Bell's amazing kite experiments, which extended over many years, and led to his powered- flight projects; and, to place the work of Bell and Baldwin in proper perspective, and to enable their accomplishments to be assessed, he has included a brief record of the prior art, including descriptions of the machines, early designers, builders, and pilots, including the Wrights, the Voisins, Bleriot, and Santos Dumont. He also presents the hitherto unpublished details of the remarkable development of hydrofoil craft at Baddeck, culminating after many years, in the spectacular achievement, in 1919, of 70.85 miles per hour, by the HD-4, the fastest craft afloat at that time." *Pages 463 through 494 plus one fold-out table are duplicated* Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.

HEMINGWAY AND FILM., Phillips, Gene D.  Introduction by Carlos Baker.  (Ernest Hemingway.)
110 Phillips, Gene D. Introduction by Carlos Baker. (Ernest Hemingway.) HEMINGWAY AND FILM.
Frederick Unger, New York, 1980. 
192 pp, 8 3/16" H, soft cover. ISBN 0804466440 B&w photographs. "Ernest Hemingway's fiction presents the film adaptor with special problems....In his penetrating study, Gene Phillips pinpoints the difficulty in turning Hemingway's subtle fiction into movie material. Some of Hollywood's finest talents have responded to the challenge. Beginning in 1932 with Frank Borazge's 'A Farewell to Arms', starring Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes, several directors have tried their hand - Sam Wood ('For Wh om the Bell Tolls', 1943), Howard Hawks ('To Have and to Have Not', 1944), and Henry King ('The Sun Also Rises', 1957). They drew on the not inconsiderable skills of such screenwriters as Dudley Nichols, William Faulkner, and John Houston. The r e s ults met with varying success. In exploring the reasons why, the book draws added validity from interviews with many of the directors and cinematographers involved in the persistent attempts to translate Hemingway into cinematic images. Carl os B ak er's moving essay, 'Hemingway's Last Appeal', sets the tone for this thematic investigation. For the interested reader or film student, the book also includes a filmography, selected bibliography, and photographs." Interior - very light b row nin g t o inside of covers, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor edge wear, minor rubbing, very minor soiling, old price sticker on rear cover. Very Good

250 pp, 8vo (8 7/16" H). "(In seventeenth-century Germany), Krabat, a fourteen-year-old Wendish beggar boy, is summoned in a dream to a mysterious mill. When he awakens, an irresistible force makes him seek out a mill near the village of Schwarzkollm where he becomes apprenticed to the master. He soon discovers that the mill is actually a school for black magic and that he and the mill's journeymen are virtual prisoners. During the week they do the normal work of the mill, but on Friday nights the master initiates them into the strange rituals of the Art of Arts. The very first Friday, the master turns Krabat into a raven, a trick the boy quickly learns to do himself. Krabat completes his apprenticeship, becomes a journeyman and the master's star pupil in necromancy. But the power his new skills endow him with does not compensate for his loss of freedom. And the more he learns of the mill's dark secrets, the more determined he becomes to escape from the master's bondage. Called a masterpiece by reviewers in Germany, 'The Satanic Mill' was awarded the 1972 German Children's Book Prize."

166 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w reproductions. "The purpose of this study is to give an annotated bibliography of the books and discuss the authors whose words were handprinted by the Woolfs. It has proved easiest to investigate the books and understand how their authors came to be connected with the Press by considering them in groups based on their relationship with the Woolfs. Of course the Woolfs printed their own works and that of their friends. They also printed work by people they admired and wanted to encourage in their endeavor to reach the public eye. Since most of these people developed careers of some note, it is possible to give an indication of their relationships to the Woolfs and what these particular books meant to them at the time of publication." From the Introduction. Contents: List of Illustrations; Preface; Introduction; The Press in the Lives of the Woolfs; Books by the Woolfs; Books by Friends; Books by Acquaintances; Books by Worthy Unknown; The Woolfs and the Book Arts Tradition; Illustrations of the Books in Order of Publication; Appendix A: List of Handprinted Books in Order of Publication; Appendix B: List of Handprinted Books in Order by Author; Notes; Bibliography; Index.

213 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w plates. "Exactly how the (Toronto) 'Telegram' came to feature Marilyn Bell's first-person, front-page account of her swim across Lake Ontario while she was under exclusive contract to the 'Toronto Star' continues to interest students of newspaper ethics to this day. But in the 1950s, as veteran newspaperman Val Sears recounts, shenanigans of this sort were commonplace. In their competition to build readership, newspapers resorted to extreme measures - even hiding crime victims - for the sake of an exclusive story. It was the age of the great newspaper wars and Val Sears was a frontline combatant. His rollicking account of the events that made the headlines, and the behind-the-scenes skirmishes among reporters battling for a scoop, is often hilarious, sometimes surprising, and occasionally tragic. Whether he is describing the bank-robbing Boyd Gang, whose repeated escapes from a Toronto prison inspired hysteria and ended in murder, the horrible devastation inflicted by Hurricane Hazel, or the miracle of the men who survived the collapse of the coal mine in Springhill, Nova Scotia, (he) demonstrates a marvellous wit and the skills of a gifted raconteur. Journalists in particular will be interested in Sears' view of how newspaper reporting has changed over the years: how stories were carefully 'built', or often stolen from other papers; how the role of the reporter has shifted, and how readers have also altered their expectations of their daily newspaper."

176 pp, 4to (11 3/4" H). Profusely illustrated with colour and b&w reproductions, b&w photographs. "This study of the life and work of Andre Bieler, one of Canada's most important living artists, spans eighty-three years of his life and art in Europe, the United States and Canada. It studies him against the flowering of twentieth-century Canadian art, a fascinating history in itself. (S)tarts with (his) birth in Switzerland in 1896, tracing his European family roots, his World War I experiences and his traditional artist's apprenticeship in Europe, his arrival in Canada as a young artist and subsequent exploration of the rural 'habitant' way of life in Quebec's L'ile d'Orleans and on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River. Most important, the author shows us the extraordinary creative energy of Andre Bieler, his exuberance and intense love of people and life that, even in his eighties, keep him experimenting in art, traveling across Canada, Europe and Mexico in search of his subject, and which define him as an artist of classic, versatile and sustained talent." Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of hinges and flap-folds, 1" faint line indentation on front panel, tiny dent/closed perforation on rear hinge.
