McGraw-Hill Ryerson, Toronto, 1981. 
157 pp, 10 7/8" H, soft cover. ISBN 0075484188 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. " 'An East Coast Port' was a familiar phrase to Canadians in the Second World War. It was the newspaper byline used, for reasons of secrecy, on stories ab out the North Atlantic convoys, and it almost always meant Halifax or one of the other smaller Maritime ports. The Second World War was a period that Haligonians alive then will never forget. Halifax was the chief convoy port and a vital p a r t o f t he war effort. Filled with sailors and soldiers, caring for the survivors of ships torpedoed sometimes just beyond the harbour gates, repairing the damaged vessels that limped into port, Halifax was Canada's only front-line city. Thi s bo ok of p h ot ographs, interviews, articles and anecdotes recaptures that unique period in Halifax's history....From the first blows of the war to the notorious VE Day riots at war's end and the arrival of the war brides, the book is a nostalg ic an d f a sci nat in g a ccount of Halifax in wartime." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - hinge creases, very light edge wear, one small corner crease, light browning on spine, one spine crease. Very Good-

67 Parkin, J.H. BELL AND BALDWIN: THEIR DEVELOPMENT OF AERODROMES AND HYDRODROMES AT BADDECK, NOVA SCOTIA.
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.

Their migration to a new home did little to improve their overall living conditions, a situation that would persist for many years throughout Yarmouth County. By drawing on a comprehen-sive range of sources that include census and cemetery records, church and school histories, libraries, museums, oral histories, newspapers, wills, 'The Black Loyalist Directory', and many others, this is a history that has been overlooked for far too long.

424 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs, maps, genealogical chart. The first volume of 'The Selected Journals of L.M. Montgomery' "takes her to 1910, the year before her marriage, when she left Prince Edward Island. It recounts her schooldays in Cavendish, redolent with incidents, impressions, and romantic 'crushes' that found their way into her fiction; a year spent in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, with her father and stepmother; a year of study at Prince of Wales College in Charlottetown, where she trained to be a teacher, and another at Dalhousie University; her teaching years; a powerful infatuation with the son of a family she lived with; a long and mostly unhappy period of keeping house for her grandmother; and the publication of 'Anne of Green Gables'. The autobiographical content will fasciant every devoted reader of the Anne books. But the Montgomery journals are especially interesting because they provide a unique social history and the privilege of viewing closely the life of a remarkable woman. Comprising perhaps the most vivid and detailed memoir in Canadian letters, the journals will join 'Anne of Green Gables' in ensuring Montgomery's lasting place in Canadian liter-ature." Very light browning to pages and edges of text block, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor soiling, light wrinkling and a few tiny tears at top of spine, some waviness on rear panel, protected in a mylar sleeve.
