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."

203 Mika, Nick and Mika, Helma. With Larry Turner. HISTORIC MILLS OF ONTARIO.
Belleville, Ontario Mika Publishing 1987 0921341083 / 9780921341086 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 
208 pp, 11 1/8" H. Profusely illustrated with colour and b&w photographs, reproductions. "(C)oncentrates on Ontario's saw, grist, flour and woollen mills, beginning with some of the early mills built by government before the 1800s to supply the needs of Loyalist settlers who came to Upper Canada. Although these mills have long since disappeared, they have been depicted by contemporary artists and their portrayals have been reproduced. Enterprising pioneers and later immigrants and their descendants in the 19th century harnessed the magnificent water power of Ontario's rivers and creeks, and the mills they erected on their banks in various counties are featured (here) in text and pictures. Historian Larry Turner gives a general overview of milling in Ontario and the significance of the role the miller played in the life and growth of 19th century communities. He explains basic milling methods, the mill machinery and technological advances, changing economic conditions that influenced the operation of mills, and he discusses restoration of the remaining heritage structures as a practical approach to their preservation. (W)ritten for anyone interested in Ontario's past, for history buffs and genealogists, for it tells about the people who built and operated the mills and about their successes and failures."

247 pp, 8 3/4" H. "This anthology of vignettes illustrating the part played by all branches of the Christian church in Canadian development offers glimpses into church life - from Jacques Cartier's planting the cross in the Gaspe to the remarkable Christian pavilion at Expo '67. Here are such different personalities as Jeanne Mance, founder of Canada's first hospital; Brother Andre, the modern miracle worker of Montreal and Norman MacLeod, the hero-tyrant of his own congregation in Cape Breton. Here, too, are brief pictures of the churches' many-sided service to Canada - a Presbyterian long communion, a Methodist camp meeting, the horrible deaths of Jesuit missionaries and the gallantry of a padre on the beach at Dieppe. We meet men and women whose names are known to every Canadian, and others whose lives of service were passed in obscurity. Drama, sorrow, humour and inspiration are found in this tribute to the cross in Canada." Very light edge wear, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.

GALLIPOLI., Moorehead, Alan.  Additional text by Ann Moyal.  Edited by Sarah Overton.
210 Moorehead, Alan. Additional text by Ann Moyal. Edited by Sarah Overton. GALLIPOLI.
Macmillan of Canada, Toronto, 1989, extended edition. 
318 pp, small 4to (10 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0771592396 Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. "Alan Moorehead's 'Gallipoli' is surely one of the most moving and absorbing books ever written. It is not simply a war book, an a ccount of a military campaign - the narrative takes on the quality of a literary masterpiece, the suspense of a thriller, and the purgative powers of Shakespearean tragedy. From the first major assault on the Narrows in March 1915, until the f i n a l evacuation of troops in January 1916, the campaign was one long saga of appalling blunders, missed opportunities, exhaustion and frustration. So often, for just a few moments, in a vacuum of indecision, all depended upon the inspiration of a s in gl e act of faith, and such acts were usually not forthcoming. And yet, hemmed into those few terrible areas of beach and hillside and permanently under shellfire, the most formidable acts of courage and imagination occured, not leas t am ong th e A nza cs . Alan Moorehead presents Gallipoli justly and compassionately. He describes the life each individual carved out for himself during those nine long months. He gives the overview and the personal view. At times he makes i t almo st p alat able . A nn Moyal has enhanced Moorehead's text by presenting much new and important information, together with relevant biographical detail, in boxes throughout the text. These, along with maps and poignant photographs, drawings an d pai nting s, br ing t he ch ara cters, the setting and the spirit of Gallipoli to life."

375 pp, 8vo (8 7/8" H). Reprint of the 1880 Belfords, Clarke & Co. edition. "In 1869, with the purchase of Rupert's Land from the Hudson's Bay Company, Canada assumed responsibility for any claims made by native groups in the new territory. Conscious of the escalating violence and costs in the American Indian Wars to the south, the government of the new Dominion embarked on a series of negotiations. By 1877, the Crown had signed a total of seven treaties - the first of what have become known as the numbered treaties - covering the westernmost part of Ontario, and much of the present-day Prairie Provinces. Four of these treaties were negotiated by Macdonald loyalist Alexander Morris, lieutenant-governor of both Manitoba and the North-West Territories. In addition, Morris concluded a treaty with refugee Sioux who had fled across the border from the United States Cavalry. (This) is a history of the western treaties signed by Morris and his predecessors. It is a record of the positions, negotiations and strategies, and also captures the often paternalistic attitudes held by the government and individuals toward native peoples in the Victorian era. Morris concludes with his thoughts on the implementation of the treaties and his hopes for the native groups with which he dealt. An appendix provides the full texts of the treaties."
