QUADRANTUS REX., Coulehan, Norbert.
1 Coulehan, Norbert. QUADRANTUS REX.
Macmillan, London, 1959, first edition. 
298 pp, small 8vo (7 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "In the second year B.C. the Emperor Augustus decided to call a conference for world peace, 'Pax Mundana', and despatched a young sea tribune, Titus to collect and escort to Rome the three gr eat Kings from Africa, Asia and the Baltic. This, in the first place, is the story of how Titus carried out his unusual assignment, the hazards and dangers of his voyages and his difficulties, both practical and diplomatic, with his noble c h a r g e s . But no less important than the sea tribune is Quadrantus, the Master of the squaresailer in which he travelled. It is soon apparent that this is no ordinary ship and Quadrantus is no ordinary master: a giant of a man, he runs his du mb c re w wi th u n canny precision and his navigation and seamanship verge on the miraculous. After the fruitless conference, Titus and Quadrantus escort the three Kings on what seems a hopeless mission to King Herod. Guided by a strange st a r, the Ki ngs a re lan ded n ear Philippi, and the half-whispered stories of the phenomena which heralded the Birth of Christ and the legend of a fourth King who set off for Bethlehem with his fellows yet failed to arrive, are given an unexpect ed tw ist when see n t hro ugh the mir ror of Norbert Coulehan's narrative." Tiny foxing specks on the top and fore-edge of the textblock, light to moderate edge wear, small bump at top of spine, light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket i s p rice cli pped, has ligh t to mod erat e ed ge wear/wrinkling, very small chips and tears at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light rubbing, light browning on flap-folds.

411 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1550022245 B&w photographs, political cartoons. "Arthur Maolney was a charmingly complicated and skilled man who came out of the Ottawa Valley determined to make something of himself a s other members of his family had done before him. By the time he died in 1984 he had been a successful criminal lawyer, a politician, a social activist, and Ontario's first Ombudsman. Charles Pullen draws on his experiences as Maloney's artic l e d law student in the late 1950s and his training as both lawyer and literary scholar to present a rich and fascinating account of Maloney's busy professional and personal life."
