ONLEY'S ARCTIC:  DIARIES AND PAINTINGS OF THE HIGH ARCTIC., Onley, Toni.  Foreword by George Woodcock.
83 Onley, Toni. Foreword by George Woodcock. ONLEY'S ARCTIC: DIARIES AND PAINTINGS OF THE HIGH ARCTIC.
Vancouver Douglas & McIntyre 1989 088894666X / 9780888946669 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good Toni Onley. 
166 pp, 10 3/4" H. Colour and b&w illustrations - reproductions, photographs, maps. "Toni Onley made his first trip to the High Arctic in 1974 aboard a Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker, the CCGS Louis S. St. Laurent. He returned the following year, this time piloting his small flying boat on a 10,000 kilometre odyssey into the eastern Arctic from Vancouver, B.C. Eleven years later, he and poet Claude Peloquin boarded another coast guard vessel on a voyage to confirm Canada's cultural sovereignty in northern waters. During each of these trips, Onley kept a diary of his daily observations: the unexpected colour, the mysterious quality of the light, the meteoric changes in the weather, the way land and sea and sky converge to tease the eye. The diaries also make many allusions to historical events and environmental concerns, and provide a lively commentary on life abaord ship and in the air. As an artist, Onley found his paintings ready-made in a landscape stripped to its bare essentials. His three trips inspired more than 200 watercolours, prints, oils and pencil drawings, of which 122 are represented here. In these stunning works, Onley exhibits his characteristic skill with a watercolour brush, capturing the fleeting light and shadow and the fragile, vulnerable beauty of the far north." Tiny dent on top edge of front board and a very small dent on the bottom edge. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - mainly at top edge, two tiny dents on front hinge.

Dundurn Press, Toronto, 1996. 
144 pp, 8vo (9" H), soft cover. ISBN 1550022644 B&w maps. "....seeks to provide illustrations of Arctic mysteries and fictions which often occur as a result of misconceptions of Arctic geography. The chapters are extremely varied in subject matt er, and conclusions are in the domain of speculation. The book begins with very early examples of northern travels starting with the probable adventures of Pytheas the Greek, Brendan the Irish monk and the four medieval odysseys of Adam of B r e m e n , Nicolas of Lynn, Prince Henry Sinclair and Zeno of Venice. The next chapter addresses misconceptions of polar environments, especially illusory land and visualization of mermaids and mermen. In addition, the book deals with polar m y th s su ch a s th e open polar sea which existed only in people's minds, but nevertheless had great influence on navigation and exploration. No account of polar enigmas would be complete without reference to the Franklin expedition, the possibl e fat e of his lo st sh ip s and the debate over whether his men committed cannibalism. The book concludes with a deliberation on whether Cook or Perry acutally did reach the North Pole, hinting that perhaps neither of them reached their objectiv e.

238 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs, maps/battle plans. "In the critical summer of 1942 the climax of the war at sea was reached with three tremendous convoy battles, one in the Mediterranean and two on the cruel Arctic convoy route to North Russia. In July 1942 came the disaster of PQ 17 whose annihilation was an unmitigated defeat for the Allies. In August the bulk of the Royal Navy's slender resources were switched to the Mediterranean to fight through the 'Pedestal' convoy to Malta. This was fought through successfully but at very heavy cost. Then in September 1942 the ships of PQ 18 put to sea in proud defiance of the grim fate of PQ 17. The hard-fought action that followed is described in this detailed and careful study of one of the major convoy battles of World War II. Peter C. Smith has researched his subject to a great depth and the resulting blow-by-blow account of the passage of this convoy constitutes a record of epic courage and grim determination, heroism and dogged endurance. It is a proud chapter in the maritime history of the Royal Navy." Tiny faint stain on top of text block. Dust jacket has minor rubbing, small area of very tiny dints on front panel.

94 pp, 9 3/8" H. B&w illustrations. "In this collection, (Zacharias) Topelius (1818-1898) reveals to us the wide horizons of his fantasy and his deep concern with the ethical principles which guide a sound life, whether it be personal or public. In 'Tikka The Tailor', (he) plays havoc with personal and community class prejudice. 'Little Genius' reveals the immortal spirit of creativity through a series of comic-tragic episodes. In 'Stars On The Snow' our hearts are moved by the absurd ugliness of race prejudice, our minds uplifted by the beauty of the Finnish Winter. 'Where Stories Grow' pokes delicious fun at class snobbishness and ignorance contrasted with the trusting, searching naivete of a young lad. 'The Ice King' (another name for Sampo the Little Lapp) has become one of the most precious tales of Scandinavia. The Arctic landscape with its fierce inhabitants fills the reader with a chill of excitement. 'Butterfly Lover' tells in seemingly simple terms the heartbreak of real and faithful love versus vanity and infidelity. 'Adventures of Sikku' presents a melodramatic description of Cossack warfare and supernatural intervention. 'Lisalill' is a sensitive tale of mystical nature which has deep roots in modern psychiatry, with special reference to Jungian interpretation of dreams. 'Fisherman's Dream', a comic tale, shows the hazards of greed." Very light edge wear to boards.

Mr. Spettigue then takes us to the school at Rockcliffe, where recruits...undergo the rigorous training that will fit them for the strenuous duties to come...We are taken on a tour of the fabulous Identification Branch in Ottawa...We visit laboratories where scrapings of blood, samples of hair, or tiny bits of cloth are examined microscopically to provide evidence that may convict or free a suspec t; where bullets are inspected under the comparison microscope to determine whether they were fired from the same gun; where experts can tell what typewriter was used to produce an incriminating letter...we visit the Mounties on their lonely patrols of the Canadian North - taking a sick Indian to hospital, bringing news and the warmth of human companionship to isolated trappers, or tracking down a criminal across miles of wilderness. Two chapters on the Marine Division tell thrilling tales of the pursuit and capture of smugglers, and of the rescue of ships in distress...The final chapter, 'On Being a Mountie', sums up what it is to be a member of the Force, and contains the inspiring story of the work that the Mounties have voluntarily undertaken in befriending underprivileged youths and helping to combat juvenile delinquency."
