Though mischievouness, at times, gets the upper hand, he never wittingly does any person or animal any harm. By his own merits he achieves his ambition of appearing in print and of being summoned to appear at a command performance. And in spite of his acquired wealth and fame, the encouragment and appreciations of his friends are his greatest rewards."

7 Gagnon, Georgette and Rath, Dan. NOT WITHOUT CAUSE: DAVID PETERSON'S FALL FROM GRACE.
Toronto HarperCollins 1991 0002158426 / 9780002158428 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
408 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w photographs. "The stunning defeat of David Peterson's powerful Liberal government on September 6, 1990 broke many of the old rules for Canadian elections - and provided the first glimpse of how future elections will be fought. At the center of the story: Liberal leader David Peterson. Young, handsome and rich, he embodied the glory years of the 1980s when Yuppies, BMWs and image politics ruled. His decision to 'go early', to call an election only three years into his mandate, set the wheels in motion. His campaign attracts some of Canada's leading political players: campaign chair Kathy Robinson, whose pivotal position becomes a hotseat as the Liberal slide begins; former Trudeau pollster Martin Goldfarb, anxious to keep a Liberal government in power; David MacNaughton, Goldfarb critic and rival; Bob Nixon, the tough and respected treasurer faced with scuttling his balanced budget in a last-ditch vote-buying attempt; aide Vince Borg, Peterson's long-time friend, who tries to protect the premier from protesters and Liberals alike. These key players and an army of policy experts, strategists, party members, candidates and reporters tangle and clash in the race for power. (The) gripping account of how the Peterson Liberals did not anticipate or prepare for the new trends emerging in Canada's electoral process: the increasing power of special-interest groups, campaign strategies that attack incumbents without offering alternatives, negative advertising, the critical importance of perceptions and the media, an electorate with declining party allegiances and the rise of non-traditional parties. It's also the reavealing tale of how Ontario's New Democratic and Progressive Conservative parties ran campaigns that became a perfect match for the volatile mood of voters." Remainder mark on bottom of text block at spine. Dust jacket has very minor wrinkling at top of spine.

Bloomington, Indiana 1st Books 2004 141076804X / 9781410768049 First Edition Soft Cover Very Good+ Signed by Author
309 pp, large 8vo (9" H). Signed by author on title page. B&w photographs. "This is a humorous story about an awkward runt - a misfit growing up on a farm on the western prairies during a time when there were few radios and no electricity or plumbing. It tells about a boy in a large poverty-stricken family coming of age and making his way into the workforce. (It) gives the reader vivid insights into farm life during the nineteen thirties and forties. The reader will also experience life in the rugged logging, mining and construction camps. Here you will meet some extraordinary characters the author toiled and drank with - a special breed of men who not only worked hard, but played hard. Underground mining was hazardous, but more of these men were killed at the wheels of their cars, than down the mines. The author also tried sales - first vacuum cleaners door to door and later real estate. During his earlier years he used up nine lives, as well as having other narrow scrapes. At age forty-four he entered graduate school for an MBA despite having only a Grade X education and at age fifty one he launched a rewarding consulting career."

202 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). Non-personal inscription by author on title page. Color illustrations. "Based on twenty years of experience influencing efficiency decision-making in more than three billion square feet of properties, this author concludes that many more projects would be approved if energy professionals were actually trained to 'sell' rather than simply 'promote' efficiency. Energy efficiency products, services, and programs all require effective selling. Professional sales skills make you more successful at advancing any energy efficiency initiative, regardless of your role in the process. Moreover, you need to think of yourself as a sales professional even if your job title does not include the word 'sales'. This book contains more than 80 short essays, each of which examines a unique aspect of efficiency-focused professional selling."

304 pp, 8 1/2" H. "Georges Bank, 20,000 square miles of turbulent shoal water off Nantucket, is one of the richest fishing grounds in the world, its depths populated by cod, haddock, flatfish, and scallops. Until recently it was a gathering place for immense fishing trawlers of all nations. Then the Bank also became a bone of contention for explorers in oil, pitting the great multinational companies against one another, to say nothing of federal and state governments, jostling for their share of offshore oil revenues. Georges has long been the subject of dispute between the United States and Canada, and in the fall of 1984 the International Court of Justice in the Hague awarded a large portion of the Bank to Canada. Oil-lease sales were scheduled - and cancelled. Fishermen protested to their political representatives, who protested to their governments. Over the storm-lashed and fecund waters of Georges Bank, William MacLeish has travelled many times - by trawler, by helicopter, by scientific research vessel, by airplane, and by scallop boat. His pages bring us the scientists, the fishing people, politicians, lawyers, and oilmen connected with Georges Bank." Book is slightly cocked, has minor soiling on top of text block, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine - bump at top of front hinge. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling, a few small light scuff marks, light soiling/rubbing on rear panel.

Toronto University of Toronto 1990 0802027202 / 9780802027207 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
319 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "In 1869, when Timothy Eaton opened his small dry goods store on Yonge Street in Toronto, the term 'department store' was unknown in North America and in Europe. By the 1890s the phrase had entered the language. In Canada, the biggest factor in that change was Eaton himself, an Irish immigrant with little formal education. Twenty years after it opened, his Toronto store was unquestionably the largest and most successful department store in Canada. (This is) a biography of Timothy Eaton which is at the same time a history of the first forty years of the Eaton store in Toronto and an account of the revolutionary changes in the way goods were sold during this period. There were enormous improvements in transportation, communication, and the mass production of goods. Urbanization grew at a tremendous rate; so did the population. This revolution imposed new demands on the retail industry, demands that many merchants at both the wholesale and retail levels chose to ignore. Timothy Eaton did not make that mistake. He used competitive and sometimes hostile markets as tools, rather than obstacles, in his search for sales." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at bottom of spine - minor elsewhere.

18 St. Lawrence Starch Company Ltd. BEE HIVE AEROPLANE PICTURES. ST. LAWRENCE STARCH COMPANY WWII PHOTO CARD PROMOTION. 48 CARDS INCLUDING SOME DUPLICATES, 1 FLYER & 1 MAILING ENVELOPE. (BEEHIVE / BEEHIVES.)
Port Credit, Ontario St. Lawrence Starch Company Unbound Very Good 
48 cards (circa 1942) from the St. Lawrence Starch Company's WWII "Bee Hive Aeroplane Pictures" sales promotion, plus a flyer for "List No. 2" showing 42 planes and describing the rules for obtaining the cards, plus 1 shipping envelope, 7 cardboard dividers and 1 contemporary newspaper clipping. In the early 1940s, the St. Lawrence Starch Company temporarily suspended its enormously popular Hockey Photo promotion, introducing this series in its place. As with the hockey cards, the keen collector had to send in one Bee Hive Syrup label or two starch product labels for each picture - this collection represents a lot of syrup tins! The cards are made up of a matte card backing (47 orange and 1 red, approx. 7 11/16" wide by 5 3/8" high) with a b&w photograph (approx. 6 11/16" wide by 4 1/2" high) glued by its top edge. The orange cards have the plane's name beneath the photograph and further description underneath, while the red card has the name/description on the verso of the photograph. The full 42 cards on the enclosed List are present, although some are possibly from later printings as there were corrections as the series developed. The full list of cards (as per the captions) is: 1. Vickers-Armstrong Supermarine "Spitfire"; 2. Hawker "Hurricane"; 3. Boulton Paul "Defiant"; 4. Bell "Airacobra"; 5. Fairey; 6. Lockheed "Hudson"; 7. Bristol "Blenheim"; 8. Vickers-Armstrong "Wellington"; 9. Blackburn "Skua"; 10. Fairey "Swordfish" (with Wheels or Floats); 11. Boeing 4 Engine "Flying Fortress" B.17C.; 12.

Consolidated B-24 "Liberator"; 19. Consolidated Model 29 - 4 Engine Patrol Bomber; 20. Consolidated Model 28 PBY "Catalina"; 21. Curtiss P-40 "Tomahawk"; 22. Grumman "Sky-Rocket"; 23. Martin B-26 "Flying Torpedo"; 24. "Harvard" Advanced Trainer No. 2.; 25. "Hurricane" Testing Its Guns; 26. Handley Page "Hampden"; 27. "Lysander"; 28. Bristol "Bombay"; 29. Bristol "Beaufort"; 30. Bristol "Beaufighter"; 31. Republic 2 P.A. "Guardsman"; 32. Vought-Sikorsky XOS2U-1; 33. Republic P-47 "Thunderbolt"; 34. North American N.A. 73 "Mustang"; 35. Martin 187 "Baltimore"; 36. Fairey "Albacore"; 37. Vultee "Vanguard"; 38. Douglas "Havoc"; 39. Douglas A20A "Boston" 3; 40. Douglas D.B.-18 "Digby"; 41. Grumman "Martlet"; 42. Vought-Sikorsky XF4U1. Additional cards: Fairey - 2 Place Bomber and Fighter (red backing); Short "Stirling (2 copies / orange backing); Handley Page "Hallifax" (orange backing); and duplicates of the Bell "Airacobra" and Bristol "Beaufort" (orange backing). The cards are generally in very good condition with the occasional faint crease and some wrinkling from the affixing glue. The glue wrinkling is more pronounced on a few cards, notably numbers 18, 26 & 27. Cards 8, 26, 27 & 32 each have a crease to the bottom right corner of the backing and card 30 has a crease across the bottom right of the photograph. The flyer has been folded in half, has some black scuffing, a very small corner crease, and one tiny perforation. The mailing envelope (approx. 8 1/2" x 9 1/2") is in poor condition with tears, creases, and pieces missing including the metal fastener. It is dated Mar. 26 '42 and has the following typed across the top, indicating the pictures included in the order: "Lock.Blen.Well.Whitley.Light.Short.Stirl." The dividers are plain buff stock and the newspaper clipping about the Airacobra has been folded multiple times with small tears and browning.

250 pp, large 8vo (9 3/4" H). B&w and colour photographs. "Nobody, least of all the McCain brothers, imagined that the little frozen foods plant they opened in 1957 would, before the century was over, make Florenceville into the French fry capital of the world. Wallace and Harrison McCain worked hard and played hard and turned their family's name into the most famous Canadian brand in the world. Because they knew people were their most important asset, they hired and trained enthusiastic, independent thinkers to help them build McCain Foods into a global powerhouse in the frozen food industry.
