THE TRUE 'INTREPID': SIR WILLIAM STEPHENSON AND THE UNKNOWN AGENTS., Macdonald, Bill.
61 Macdonald, Bill. THE TRUE 'INTREPID': SIR WILLIAM STEPHENSON AND THE UNKNOWN AGENTS.
Timberholme, Surrey, British Columbia, 1998, first edition. 
429 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1894254015 B&w illustrations. "The true story of Winnipeg born William Stephenson (known as 'Intrepid'), his career, and the secret World War II espionage organization, British Securit y Coordination, which he established in the heart of New York City. Stephenson staffed BSC with hundreds of Canadians recruited from across the country. Bill Macdonald documents Stephenson's clouded early life and unravels layers of misinformati o n from previous books and secret papers to reveal the astonishing details of the man who said: 'Nothing deceives like a document'. - Included in this volume are many interviews with former members of BSC: secretaries, cipher clerks, covert operat iv es and with former BSC agent, British author, Roald Dahl. Of special historic significance are the revelations of the Allies' communications genius, the late Benjamin de Forest Bayly, who had previously never discussed his war work. His electr oni c w izardry helped guard the Allies' top secrets, and win the Battle of the Atlantic. (This book) weaves its way through deception, treachery, war, espionage and a search for the 'real' James Bond." Slight waviness to edges of text block, very lig ht w rinkling at top/bottom of spine, previous owner's place, date and signature along with small blanked-out notation on title page.

262 pp, 9 1/4" H. Map endpapers, b&w photographs, maps, reproductions. "John A. McDougall left his Ontario home in 1873 to seek his fortune in the West, first as a fur trader on the Fort Carlton Trail, and then for some fifty years as a merchant in Edmonton (population forty when he first arrived there in 1879). During his lifetime he saw the Indians signing their lands over to the Crown; watched the hamlet of Edmonton by-passed by the railroad and later cut off for weeks by hostile Indians during the second Riel Rebellion. He experienced the Edmonton boom when the Klondike rush began and the decline resulting from the gradual abandonment of the overland route to the Yukon. A long hard climb to prosperity followed. (This book) throws new light on an important section of Canadian history and illustrates the magnitude of the changes that have taken place in the West in the past hundred years."

Dust jacket has several edge tears archivally taped, a few small scuffs/rub marks, very light fading on spine/hinges, some light soiling on hinges, very small closed tear on front hinge.

Toronto Doubleday Canada 1983 0385128126 / 9780385128124 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good- 
362 pp, 8 1/2" H. B&w photographs. "The devastating story of Cape Breton's miners and the strikes they launched against the companies that owned their homes, their possessions, and their churches. Canadians - and the rest of the world - will be shocked by accounts of police brutality and murder, mass demonstrations, rebellion, scandalous politicking, and most of all, desperate poverty and hunger. The miners had always been paid starvation wages by companies that held total monopolies of such towns as Glace Bay. The first time they launched a strike in 1905, soldiers were brought in and machine guns and barbed wire were set up around the mining communities. Credit was cut off from company stores (the only stores). Miners were evicted from company-owned houses (the only houses) in the middle of winter. The death toll was enormous. Strikes over the next fifteen years simply led to continued harrassment and eviction. At one time, the company was permitted, by government order, to employ hundreds of special police, mounted on horseback and supplied with guns and heavy sticks, to batter miners into submission. James Bryson McLachlan was the hero of the Cape Bretoners when he took up their cause and organized strikers and entered into negotiations with the companies. (This) is also his story - and the story of the beginnings of the labour movement for all of Canada." Small Christmas gift inscription on front free endpaper, a few tiny dents on bottom of text block, very light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light browning at edges, light rubbing/soiling on rear panel.

69 Morris, Alexander. THE TREATIES OF CANADA WITH THE INDIANS OF MANITOBA AND THE NORTH-WEST TERRITORIES, INCLUDING THE NEGOTIATIONS ON WHICH THEY WERE BASED, AND OTHER INFORMATION RELATING THERETO.
Toronto Prospero 2000 1552671410 / 9781552671412 Facsimile Reprint. Hard Cover Very Good - Very Good 
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." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny/small bump to corners of boards, minor rubbing, minor shallow bump to bottom of rear board, minor soiling to edges of textblock, small corner crease on page 49/50, very faint liquid splash on fore-edge of text block.

75 Nichol, Eric, editor. (Francis Dickens.) DICKENS OF THE MOUNTED: THE ASTONISHING LONG-LOST LETTERS OF INSPECTOR F. DICKENS NWMP, 1874-1886.
Toronto McClelland & Stewart 1989 0771068077 / 9780771068072 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good+ 
294 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). Map on front endpapers, reproductions of letters on rear endpapers. "Few people know that Charles Dickens had a son who served in the North-West Mounted Police in the days when the Canadian West was wild. Those historians who mention his twelve years in the force (1874-1886) dismiss him as a round peg in a square hole, a fat, stammering, slightly deaf, alcoholic Englishman with a tendency to fall off his horse in the course of tense confrontations with Indian warriors. These recently discovered letters home to England set the record straight, and reveal the true Dickens. Not only do these letters tell us much about the Dickens family, even to the point of parodying 'Pa's' purple prose, they also tell us a great deal about early Canada as Dickens saw it in Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, and Winnipeg, and in forts all across the prairies. Dickens met everyone worth meeting in the West - including Crowfoot, Gabriel Dumont, Sam Steele, Jerry Potts, and Louis Riel - and even encountered famous visitors such as Sitting Bull, the Governor General, and Col. Harry Flashman (whom he calls 'a humbug'). And while he may have blotted his copy-book surrendering Fort Pitt to Riel's rebels, we learn here that he deserves credit for inspiring the Mounties' Musical Ride and the phrase 'a Mountie always gets his man'. Editor Nichol's wonderful skills have brought this man so alive that when we part from Frank Dickens at the end of the book, we do so with the sense of having lost a friend." Small area of light browning on top of text block. Dust jacket has tiny dent on rear panel, very minor edge wrinkling.

Volume I: The French Regime - 176 pp, hard cover in dust jacket, 9" H - "(C)ontains a fascinating collection of first-hand accounts by individuals involved in the founding and settling of Canada. Through their own words these men chronicle their ambitions, deeds, and frustrations, from the time of Jacques Cartier's first voyage of exploration in 1534 to the surrender of Montreal to the British in 1760. Consisting mostly of translations from the original French, this book of documents was compiled with the purpose of placing an emphasis on the social and economic aspects of life during the French Regime in Canada." Volume II: Pre-Confederation - 242 pp, soft cover, 8 3/4" H - "(C)overs the history of British North America from the end of the French regime to 1867. Thus the history of Nova Scotia begins with the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713; that of Canada with the Treaty of Paris in 1763. New-foundland I have commenced, a little arbitrarily, in 1713; for the Hudson's Bay Company and the West I have included the Charter of 1670. Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick begin with their official establishment as provinces carved out of the old Province of Nova Scotia, in 1769 and 1784 respect-ively. The basic element in the story illustrated in this book is preforce political and constitutional history (but) at the same time I have tried to present the way various societies in British North America lived and worked."

(It) indicates how Confederation was consolidated between 1967 and 1896. The emergence of modern Canada up to 1914 is then discussed. The First World War and the new economy that followed it then leads into the depression, the Second World War and industrialism. In the last part, external affairs are traced from 1914 on and Canada's international position is evaluated."

174 pp, 10 3/4" H. B&w photographs, colour and b&w reproductions. "Throughout (this book) Daphne Odjig's story has been told by herself as related through R.M. Vanderburgh and M.E. Southcott. As a product of an oral tradition that was still flourishing during her childhood in the village of Wikwemikong on Manitoulin Island in Georgian Bay, Daphne became a superb storyteller, in the tradition of her elders. It is this inheritance that she has built on as she told her stories to her two collaborators. Odjig's skills as a storyteller are reflected in the impressionistic introductions to many of the chapters. Her lively expresion of events and activities in her life come vividly alive for Vanderburgh who has maintained as much as possible the authenticity of Odjig's narratives and tried to pass these impressions along to the reader. Odjig's skill in visual communication is evident in the paintings reproduced here. Southcott has tried to pass on to the reader the thoughts and emotions the artist experienced in the creation of these paintings."
