Charles C. Thomas, Springfield, Illinois, 1969. 
459 pp, large 8vo (9 3/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "Since the discovery by Aserinsky and Kleitman of an objective indicator of dreaming sleep, there have been a plethora of studies investigating the physiological parameters of the dreaming a nd non-dreaming sleep states. However, there has been an unfortunate neglect of the psychological concomitants of these states in most of this work. A comprehensive symposium which would bring together workers interested in the psychology o f d r e a m ing with those who worked with the REM technique for the collection of sleep mentation seemed desirable if the understanding of the psychology of dreaming was to keep pace and be integrated with the ever-increasing physiological know l ed ge . Th is v ol ume reports on a conference which focused both on the classical views of the nature of the dream as seen in the light of the findings coming from the REM studies and on the current attempts at exploring the content of REM coll ec ted dr ea m s. Th e i nte raction between the participants, those who articulated theoretical statements about the psychology of the dream, and those who examined dream content in various experimental ways, lead to further reintegrative efforts on bot h si des ."

4 Obodiac, Stan. MAPLE LEAF GARDENS: FIFTY YEARS OF HISTORY.
Toronto Van Nostrand Reinhold 1981 0442296355 / 9780442296353 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good 
208 pp, 11 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w and colour photographs, reproductions. "(T)akes a fascinating look at the personalities and events that have made the Gardens Canada's most famous building. It is the interesting story of the building of the Gardens and of the hockey greats who have played there. It is also, in many ways, the story of popular entertainment in Canada from 1931 to 1981. Over 100 million people have been entertained by ballet, opera, circuses, skating extravaganzas and concerts of all sorts, in addition to almost every kind of sporting event from boxing and wrestling to bicycle racing. The arena has also been the site of political and religious rallies, benefits in support of the war effort, community events such as Brownie and Boy Scout pageants, and service club fund-raisers. This nostalgic book will remind sports fans of the Leafs' high-scoring Kid Line, of George Chuvalo going the distance with Muhammad Ali or of Vitas Gerulaitas defeating Bjorn Borg. Rock fans will remember attending an Elvis Presley concert, or waiting hours in line for Beatles' tickets. (It) also contains a detailed chronology of the milestones in the history of the Gardens for the trivia buff." Minor edge wear, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very light edge wear, one very small edge tear archivally taped.
