Edmonton Institute of Applied Art 1966 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good+ 
192 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. Dr. Grant MacEwan looks at Canadian politics both as a participant (once mayor of Calgary and, at time of writing, Lieutenant-Governor of Alberta) and an interested observer. This book was written "with the hope of doing something to re-awaken political enthusiasm, thereby gaining a more vigorous Democracy" and he expresses a wish that Canadians would bring to the political arena "more of the enthusiasm fans have for a football or hockey game". Small erased pencil mark on free front endpaper, tiny and small corner bumps, wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear/wrinkling - mostly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light soiling, slight browning and a few very small faint stains on spine, tape on inside top/bottom edges.

164 MacKenzie, David. Foreword by Pierre Berton. ARTHUR IRWIN: A BIOGRAPHY.
Toronto University of Toronto Press 1993 080202632X / 9780802026323 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good+ 
323 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "From 1925 to 1950 Arthur Irwin was the driving force behind the success of 'Maclean's Magazine', first as associate editor, then managing editor, and, finally, as editor. He had strong views on what it meant to be Canadian, and under his direction 'Maclean's' was moulded into 'Canada's National Magazine', mirroring the development of Canada as an independent nation in the twentieth century. In the years before the outbreak of the Second World War, he was at the centre of the Maclean company's investigation of defence contracting, or what has become known as the 'Bren Gun Scandal'. In the 1940s Irwin actively sought out writers of talent and potential and gradually added to the magazine's staff many Canadian writers who went on to distinguished careers, including Ralph Allen, Pierre Berton, Blair Fraser, and Scott Young. After leaving 'Maclean's' in 1950, Irwin was appointed film commissioner at the National Film Board, during a time when the board's survival was in doubt because of allegations of espionage and subversion. Irwin was the man called in to deal with the NFB's 'red scare', and, afterwards, he reorganized the board and moved its operations from Ottawa to Montreal. Irwin subsequently went on to a career as a diplomat: he was appointed high commissioner in Australia, and ambassador to Brazil and Mexico. In his last professional position he was publisher of an Victoria newspaper. This book, in describing a man who was profoundly representative of his times, and whose presence in major Canadian institutions was influential, captures the mood of Irwin's period and raises important questions about the roots of present-day Canadian nationalism and cultural identity." One small corner bump. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top of rear flap-fold, minor rubbing.

Toronto Griffin House 1974 0887600699 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good 
118 pp, 8 3/4" H. B&w drawings, photographs. Map endpapers. "In the 1670s the great explorer Robert Cavalier, Sieur de LaSalle, built the Griffon on the upper reaches of the Niagara River, the first ship to sail above the mighty Falls. On a voyage from Lake Michigan back to the Niagara she disappeared without a trace. The author believes he has discovered her remains in an island cove near Tobermory, Ontario on Lake Huron. This fascinating account of historical deduction is based on many years of careful research." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, light browning to edges of text block.

Combining the skills of a great detective with patience and tenacity, he rescued many fragile records of our experience. His passion for history has been infectious, enlisting the help of many in the cause, and triumphing over (bureaucracy) and indifference. His achievements have been real and numerous. His exploits, though, are the stuff of legend." from the rear panel.

171 pp, square soft cover (8" x 8"). B&w photographs. ISBN 9781550028515 "A crab boat off Newfoundland catches fire, and a dangerous rescue is undertaken by helicopter. A child goes missing in a New Brunswick forest, and a desperate hunt is mounted. A climber tumbles 70 feet down the side of a mountain in British Columbia, and a dangerous long-line rescue is attempted. A commercial helicopter crashes in Nunavut, and a search and rescue team braves a savage snowstorm to save the pilot. (This book) features the above thrilling accounts and many more from across the country, past and present. Its heroes are to be found in the RCMP, city police forces, the Canadian military, and among all the rescue workers and specialists of the C anadian Coast Guard - volunteers, too, risk injury and even death to help others. Sidebars highlight the equipment search and rescue teams use, how search dogs are trained, how long-line rescues work, how navy divers are making a difference in the deserts of Afghanistan, and the meaning of terms such as emergency position-indicating radio beacons, Maydays, datum lines, and much more." Although catalogued as for the younger reader, this book gives an interesting overview of Canadian search and rescue operations for most levels of reader.

"(T)he story of the Royal Bank, told not only in terms of executive personalities and corporate strategies, but also through an exploration of its corporate culture - of the lives of the people of the Royal - and of the part this corporate culture played in the opening of the country and the expansion of international trade. Throughout are vignettes that focus on some diverting details in the life of the Royal Bank. How many, for instance, know that Henry Mullins, the manager of the Mariposa branch of the Exchange Bank in Stephen Leacock's 'Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town', was based on a real-life Royal Banker, George Rapley, of the Orillia, Ontario branch? Or that, in an effort to foil robbers, tellers were often expected to sleep on the bank premises (sometimes in front of the vault) with loaded revolvers under their pillows? Eminently readable as well as informative (this book) fills an important gap in Canadian business history."
