2 Johnstone, Sandy, Air Vice-Marshal. (Alexander) ENEMY IN THE SKY: MY 1940 DIARY.
San Rafael, California Presidio 1979 0891410864 / 9780891410867 Very Good+ Very Good 
191 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs. "In 1940 Great Britain faced one of the most critical periods in its history when Germany launched its air power across the English Channel. For a few nightmarish weeks the fate of the nation lay in the hands of its fighter pilots, 'Churchill's Few'. During those pivotal days Sandy Johnstone commanded the 602nd (City of Glasgow) Squadron stationed at Westhampnett. He kept a detailed diary of the squadron's activities. Flying their Spitfires, the pilots of the 602nd pitted themselves against the German threat, fighting for control of the airspace over their homeland. Johnstone himself was credited with eight kills and four probables. Eventually the Battle of Britain was won. The 602nd Squadron's outstanding role in the victory, clearing the skies of enemy aircraft, is brilliantly brought to life again through the pages of this remarkable diary." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny light scuff on front board, very light edge wear, slight browning to edges of text block. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor soiling, one small edge tear - taped, slight browning on spine.

3 McDowall, Duncan. QUICK TO THE FRONTIER: CANADA'S ROYAL BANK.
Toronto McClelland and Stewart 1993 0771055048 / 9780771055041 First Edition Very Good+ Very Good 
478 pp, 10" H. Pictorial endpapers, b&w photographs, reproductions. "(T)he story of the Royal Bank, told not only in terms of executive personalities and corporate strategies, but also through an exploration of its corporate culture - of the lives of the people of the Royal - and of the part this corporate culture played in the opening of the country and the expansion of international trade. Throughout are vignettes that focus on some diverting details in the life of the Royal Bank. How many, for instance, know that Henry Mullins, the manager of the Mariposa branch of the Exchange Bank in Stephen Leacock's 'Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town', was based on a real-life Royal Banker, George Rapley, of the Orillia, Ontario branch? Or that, in an effort to foil robbers, tellers were often expected to sleep on the bank premises (sometimes in front of the vault) with loaded revolvers under their pillows? Eminently readable as well as informative (this book) fills an important gap in Canadian business history." Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - mainly top edge small scratch on both panels, tiny dent on front panel. 
Price: 20.00 USD
