CANADIAN IMPRESSIONISM., Duval, Paul.
85 Duval, Paul. CANADIAN IMPRESSIONISM.
Toronto McClelland & Stewart 1990 0771029650 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good - Very Good 
166 pp, square 4to (11 3/4" H). "This beautiful volume, full of the light and colour that characterize most Impressionist art, is a thoroughly enjoyable guide to Canadian Impressionist painting from roughly 1885 to 1920. It brings together, for the first time in book form, the Canadian representatives of the world's most popular and accessible school of painting, offering a totally fresh look at a now-vanished society, and presenting a strong contrast to the isolated, unpopulated vision of the country usually portrayed by the Group of Seven - although members of that group are represented in their earlier, more intimate styles. 'Canadian Impressionism' conveys a vivid cross-section of the subject, including many paintings that have never before been reproduced. The work of neglected artists such as Helen McNicoll, Frank Armington, John S. Gordon, John Russell, and William Clapp is featured among the seventy full-colour plates, alongside the more familiar talents of J.W. Morrice, Paul Peel, Lawren Harris, Maurice Cullen, and A.Y. Jackson. (A) revelation and a delight, showing as it does a charming side of Canadian art that has not, until now, received the attention that it deserves." Light toning to edges of pages/text block, waviness to top/bottom edges of text block, several very small dents at bottom edge of boards, a few small shallow dents on fore-edge of boards, several very light stains on boards. Dust jacket has minor waviness at top/bottom edges, very light toning at top/bottom inside edges, sharp crease down rear hinge

195 pp, 8 3/4" H. "A brilliant intelligence is brought to bear on the vital issues of Canadian defence and foreign policy, on Canada's relations with the U.S. and the British Commonwealth and the Communist bloc. Canadians do not always look at these problems in the same way as their North American neighbours. This book considers the Canadian 'style' in approaching such questions. (Discusses) difficult and frightening issues such as the location of the Great Deterrent, the acquisition of nuclear weaons, the fate of the Avro Arrow, civil defence. (Eayrs) examines the 'Nostrum of Neutralism' and while he concedes its appeal, concludes that the arguments in its favour are not valid at present. Commonwealth concerns, the monarchy, America's ill-fated intervention in Cuba, the role of the United Nations, the non-recognition of Communist China - all these questions and others of the kind are fearlessly and realistically discussed." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has beem price-clipped, has very light soiling/rubbing, light edge wear - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, a few tiny edge tears archivally taped.

470 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photoraphs. "Skidding tires. Jet engines. Stars. Improved packaging. Seaweed. Radar. Wheat rust. Atoms. All have been the objects of intensive research by Canadian scientists. We are scarcely aware of the effects of such scientific reseach and planning on our daily lives; yet their impact is incalculable. The National Research Council in Ottawa has been responsible not only for research conducted in its own laboratories, but also in universities and regional laboratories across the country. The history of the Council is enriched by strong personalities such as Dr. Henry Marshall Tory, its first President and early champion of federal research. It chronicles the frustration of bureaucratic haggling, and the battles for improved funding and facilities to carry on important projects. It is the dramatic account of wartime work for more effective weaponry, on gas masks, radar and atomic fission. And it details the equally significant, but less known work on wheat rust, the difficulties of construction in the Canadian environment and wind tunnel experiments to ensure aviation safety." Wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor soiling on front board, minor corner wear. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine, light rubbing on front panel.

640 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs, tables. "(1920-1940) was a critical period when the Mennonites' survival in Canada was under a variety of external threats. It was also an age in which Mennonite history was marked by fragmentation even in their own communities. During this twenty-year timespan the battle for separate schooling led to a significant emigration of Canadian Mennonites to Latin America, while another struggle was waged with our immigration authorities to allow the entry of Russian Mennonites into Canada. The book also covers the impact of the Depression on the Mennonites and their efforts to preserve their culture and racial identity. The book ends with the response of the Mennonites to the outbreak of the Second World War."

92 Evans, A. Margaret and Barker, C.A.V. CENTURY ONE: A HISTORY OF THE ONTARIO VETERINARY ASSOCIATION, 1874-1974.
Guelph, Ontario Self-published 1976 0969069000 Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 
516 pp, 9 1/4" H. Pictorial endpapers, b&w photographs. "Few people appreciate the significant contribution made by veterinarians to the economic importance of the livestock industry, the quality of small animals and the control of diseases affecting public health throughout Canada. The increasing value of such work is largely due to the efforts of the profession itself, particularly in the province of Ontario. Human survival still depends on animals and animal products. To that close relationship the veterinarian brings the benefits of modern science; his professional skill and integrity today defend the economic and physical well-being of all citizens. In a fast-flowing but detailed narrative, the authors review the early years of the O.V.A., its emphasis on high ethical and scientific standards and a long struggle for adequate statutory recognition. These advances have been closely linked to the remarkable role of the Ontario Veterinary College throughout the century. The book also traces the rise of the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association to its position of national influence. In Canada, the profession is unique in that close collaboration with all levels of government is constantly required. The control and suppression of rabies is only one example - perhaps the best know to the public." Dust jacket has tiny tear/wrinkling at top of front hinge - archivally taped, minor soiling.

In the course of her career she also served as Minister of Citizenship and Immigration and Minister responsible for Indian Affairs, and was in charge of the National Gallery, the National Film Board, the Dominion Archives, and the National Library.

Toronto Macmillan of Canada 1988 071592876 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good - Very Good- 
(259) pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w photographs, maps. "The first great international gold rush began in 1849 after news about spectacular discoveries in California leaked out to the rest of the world, setting off one of the largest peace-time migrations in history. The final one, using dog-teams as well as aircraft, took place in the wilderness of northwestern Ontario in the Roaring Twenties, when corporate manoeuvring had nearly eclipsed the fierce individualism so central to the idea of the gold rush. The period saw every type of person - saints and charlatans, nobles and peasants, plutocrats and radicals, Asians, Blacks and Europeans - racing off to the Rocky Mountains, Australia, South Africa or Alaska and the Yukon. As they gained cumulative force, the gold rushes produced certain stock characters: the happy-go-lucky millionaire, the golden-hearted prostitute, the aging veteran of some previous frontier search for one final fling. In every instance, the gold rush was not merely an anarchic type of economic development but a signal and informing event in the history of the host country. In nearly all cases, there was great tension between the forces of authority on the one hand and the miners' instinctual libertarianism on the other. Often the result was violence - followed by reform. (This book) throws new light on a popular subject and ties part of one country's history and folkore to that of the others." Small bump at each corner of boards, slight bump at top of spine, very light browning at bottom edge of spine. Dust jacket has wrinkling and light wear at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, two tiny edge tears archivally taped.
