493 pp, small 4to (10 5/8" H). INSCRIBED ON HALF TITLE PAGE: "BEST WISHES FROM NANCY Z. TAUSKY 7 DEC. 1986 / WITH GOOD WISHES - LYNNE D. DISTEFANO 7 DECEMBER 1986". "Beginning with a discussion of the area's history, (the authors) explore the work of the most prominent architectural firm in Victorian London (Ontario) - Robinson, Tracy, Durand and Moore - and its role in the development of southwestern Ontario. From their focus on specific architects emerges a broader picture of the factors that typically shaped Victorian towns. They consider the various theories and movements that were given expression in Victorian building design, the social influences on the period's architecture, the evolution of building technology, and the state of the architectural profession in general during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. At the heart of the book, of course, are the buildings. Churches, banks, schools, courthouses, stores, and all manner of public buildings, as well as private homes are represented. Extensively illustrated, the book includes old photographs, reproductions of drawings and plans, and contemporary photographs of buildings which still stand, taken specially for this volume by Ian MacEachern." Minor browning in margins of pages and edges of textblock, tiny surface paper loss at top of inside front hinge, very light edge rubbing, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine . Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling, slight fading on spine and at bottom of rear hinge area.

87 Walker, Willa. NO HAY FEVER & A RAILWAY: SUMMERS IN ST. ANDREWS, CANADA'S FIRST SEASIDE RESORT.
Fredericton, New Brunswick Goose Lane Editions 1989 0864920962 / 9780864920966 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Signed by Author
176 pp, oblong 8vo (8 3/4" H x 11 1/4" D). B&w photographs, maps, reproductions. SIGNED AND DATED BY AUTHOR ON HALF TITLE PAGE. "During the latter years of the nineteenth century St. Andrews was 'discovered' by a wealthy few who sought a summer place by the sea. Escaping from Boston, Montreal, St. Louis, Toronto and elsewhere, they bought, rented, or built houses, returning year after year as their children did in turn. Luxurious hotels such as 'The Argyll' and 'The Algonquin' - advertising 'no hay fever' and good rail connections - were built to serve them, and a summer society was established: riding, sailing, playing tennis and croquet, dining, dancing, and gossiping. Fathers of Confederation like Sir Leonard Tilley and Sir Charles Tupper, the great railway builders Sir William Van Horne and Lord Shaughnessy, financiers like Sir James Dunn, politicians from Senator Cairine Wilson and C.D. Howe to John Turner, were joined in St. Andrews by socialites and possessors of 'old money' from both Canada and the United States. (This book) records the achievements and oddities of the people who made up this small but distinctive society and describes the 'cottages' in which they spent those summers by the sea." Previous owner's name on free front endpaper, small light soiling mark at fore-edge of free rear endpaper. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor edge wrinkling.
