Copp, Clark 1972 Soft Cover Good+ 
728 pp, 8 1/4" H. B&w illustrations. "How did people live through the Depression of the 1930s? (T)he Depression irrevocably altered the attitudes of those who endured it, and consequently has subtly shaped the life styles of their children. This fascinating collection contains accounts from various classes - farmers, fishermen, industrial and extractive workers, white collar workers, members of the professions, independent proprietors, rentiers, managers - and those who belonged only to the vast mass of unemployed. Personal histories are nicely balanced by comments from academic writers, from journalists, social workers, policemen, the clergy, and from politicians and others who offered a bewildering selection of 'cures'. The final section of the book presents the reminiscences of several well-known Canadians." Interior - light toning to pages, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light browning to edgers of text block, three varying size creases at bottom corner of rear cover, two tiny corner creases on front cover, light edge wear - mainly on spine, two faint creases on spine, light rubbing - mainly on spine.

2 Scott, A.C. THE FLOWER AND WILLOW WORLD: THE STORY OF THE GEISHA.
Orion Press, (1960), first edition. 
208 pp, 8vo (8 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs. "Here, written by an expert for non-experts, is a fascinating account of the history and role of the geisha in Japan: a role that has frequently been misunderstood by Westerners. The author describes the historical development of the geisha, the social background which surrounds her, her training and accomplishments, her costume and hair style. He discusses the famous geisha of the past and the organization of the geisha system today, with special reference to postwar developments. Thus the reader is led to a proper understanding of this unique and highly accomplished social class which has no counterpart in the West." Onr leaf with small corner creases; small light stains on pages 198-200, on verso of page 201, and on page 203; light edge wear to boards; small stain on bottom of textblock. Dust jacket has light to moderate rubbing, tiny chip/tears/creasing at top of spine, light edge wear/wrinkling, one small closed tear. VG-/G
