222 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H). Inscribed by author on title page: "to Luba / with love / Farley Mowat / 75.". "(P)resents a memorable portrait of a land and its people, capturing the essence of the Arctic and of Eskimo lore. The reader meets Koonar, the first intruder from the world of the whites, who bore a strange and powerful gift to the Innuit (the People). And Angutna, who was Brother to Kipmik, the white fox - and who paid a terible price for that. Arnuk, the lost Husky, and the lone wolf. Kala, who survived by means of an act of desperation. Nakusiak, who was washed ashore on a Scottish island. These figures and many others swell to life-like proportions through the accomplished prose of Farley Mowat. Poignant in its depiction of a way of life that is no more, (it) is sure to be counted among (his) finest contributions to Canadian literature." Previous owner's name in ink on front free endpaper, a few very light finger marks in margins of pages, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very light rubbing, a few tiny edge tears - some with creases, tiny ink mark at bottom edge of front flap and front panel, protected in a mylar sleeve.

EXTRA VIRGINITY: THE SUBLIME AND SCANDALOUS WORLD OF OLIVE OIL., Mueller, Tom.
104 Mueller, Tom. EXTRA VIRGINITY: THE SUBLIME AND SCANDALOUS WORLD OF OLIVE OIL.
New York W.W. Norton 2012 0393070212 / 9780393070217 First Edition Near Fine Very Good+ 
238 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w and colour photographs. "For millenia, fresh olive oil has been one of life's necessities - not just as food but also as medicine, a beauty aid, and a vital element of religious rituals. Medical researchers today continue to confirm the remarkable, life-giving properties of true extra virgin olive oil. But this symbol of purity has become deeply corrupt. Most of what appears in supermarkets falls short of the high standards that define extra virgin oil, and some of it isn't even made from olives. Smelly, rancid, and downright fake olive oils are everywhere, from corner pizzerias to top restaurants. Tom Mueller takes us on a journey through the world of olive oil, meeting the hardworking artisan producers who struggle to conserve ancient, local traditions in the face of an increasingly globalized marketplace; fraudsters and multinationals who control the flows of fake products; chefs, researchers, military police, and oil sommeliers who celebrate the extraordinary oils that truly deserve the name 'extra virgin'. Superbly written, rich with fascinating forays into olive oil's uses throughout time, (this book) unveils the sacred history and profane present of a substance seen for millennia as the essence of health and civilization." Very minor rubbing on boards. Dust jacket has some minor edge wrinkling and minor rubbing.

VISA TO RUSSIA., Newman, Bernard.

Herbert Jenkins, London, 1959, first edition. 
244 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs, maps. At the time of the author's tour, visits to Russia were carefully orchestrated affairs, watched over by government officials. "But what if you go as a private individual? Bernard Newman determined to find the answer to this question during the summer of (1958), and his account of his lone pilgrimage makes a fascinating book of the first importance. By simple devices at the disposal of any tourist he went m o r e o r l ess where he pleased, had dozens of conversations with ordinary people and enjoyed the hospitality of many a Russian home. Once the barrier of suspicion was penetrated, he found the Russians as friendly as the people of most other g re at n at i on s. H is meetings with them were disarmingly informal and quite the contrary to common experience. Then he was arrested, and he saw at first hand the police state at work. He saw something of the power of the Communist party lead er, of th eir d isr ega r d f or truth, of individual freedom, of human rights. It was a grim experience, and was in marked and sombre contrast to his earlier friendly encounters with the Man-in-the-Street. (This) is a balanced and trustworthy pict ure of a nat ion liv ing un der Communism, an existence which has been variously described by other writers as heaven, or as hell. In his description of it Bernard Newman has not fallen into the pitfalls of extremes. Instead, he has set asi de pr ejud ice a nd in an objec tive an d no n-political account tells us precisely what he saw and did."

112 Nichol, Eric, editor. (Francis Dickens.) DICKENS OF THE MOUNTED: THE ASTONISHING LONG-LOST LETTERS OF INSPECTOR F. DICKENS NWMP, 1874-1886.
Toronto McClelland & Stewart 1989 0771068077 / 9780771068072 First Edition Very Good Very Good+ 
294 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). Map on front endpapers, reproductions of letters on rear endpapers. "Few people know that Charles Dickens had a son who served in the North-West Mounted Police in the days when the Canadian West was wild. Those historians who mention his twelve years in the force (1874-1886) dismiss him as a round peg in a square hole, a fat, stammering, slightly deaf, alcoholic Englishman with a tendency to fall off his horse in the course of tense confrontations with Indian warriors. These recently discovered letters home to England set the record straight, and reveal the true Dickens. Not only do these letters tell us much about the Dickens family, even to the point of parodying 'Pa's' purple prose, they also tell us a great deal about early Canada as Dickens saw it in Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, and Winnipeg, and in forts all across the prairies. Dickens met everyone worth meeting in the West - including Crowfoot, Gabriel Dumont, Sam Steele, Jerry Potts, and Louis Riel - and even encountered famous visitors such as Sitting Bull, the Governor General, and Col. Harry Flashman (whom he calls 'a humbug'). And while he may have blotted his copy-book surrendering Fort Pitt to Riel's rebels, we learn here that he deserves credit for inspiring the Mounties' Musical Ride and the phrase 'a Mountie always gets his man'. Editor Nichol's wonderful skills have brought this man so alive that when we part from Frank Dickens at the end of the book, we do so with the sense of having lost a friend." Small area of light browning on top of text block. Dust jacket has tiny dent on rear panel, very minor edge wrinkling.

Scarborough, Ontario Prentice-Hall 1965 Very Good Good 
Three volume set - volumes I & III are hard covers in dust jackets, volume II is soft cover. Volume I: The French Regime - 176 pp, hard cover in dust jacket, 9" H - "(C)ontains a fascinating collection of first-hand accounts by individuals involved in the founding and settling of Canada. Through their own words these men chronicle their ambitions, deeds, and frustrations, from the time of Jacques Cartier's first voyage of exploration in 1534 to the surrender of Montreal to the British in 1760. Consisting mostly of translations from the original French, this book of documents was compiled with the purpose of placing an emphasis on the social and economic aspects of life during the French Regime in Canada." Volume II: Pre-Confederation - 242 pp, soft cover, 8 3/4" H - "(C)overs the history of British North America from the end of the French regime to 1867. Thus the history of Nova Scotia begins with the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713; that of Canada with the Treaty of Paris in 1763. New-foundland I have commenced, a little arbitrarily, in 1713; for the Hudson's Bay Company and the West I have included the Charter of 1670. Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick begin with their official establishment as provinces carved out of the old Province of Nova Scotia, in 1769 and 1784 respect-ively. The basic element in the story illustrated in this book is preforce political and constitutional history (but) at the same time I have tried to present the way various societies in British North America lived and worked." Volume III: Confederation to 1949 - 334 pp, hard cover in dust jacket, 9" H - (A) fascinating collection of first-hand accounts by some of the individuals who were actively involved in the events that led from consolidation of Confederation to Canada in the era of Post World War II. (It) indicates how Confederation was consolidated between 1967 and 1896. The emergence of modern Canada up to 1914 is then discussed. The First World War and the new economy that followed it then leads into the depression, the Second World War and industrialism. In the last part, external affairs are traced from 1914 on and Canada's international position is evaluated."

279 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). "1864. London is a city in transition. The Constantine Affliction - a strange malady that kills some of its victims and physically transforms others into the opposite sex - has spread scandal and upheaval through society. Scientific marvels and disasters, such as clockwork courtesans, the alchemical fires of Whitechapel, electric carriages, and acidic monsters lurking in the Thames, have forever altered the face of the city. Pembroke 'Pimm' Halliday is an aristocrat with an interest in criminology, who uses his keen powers of observation to assist the police or private individuals - at least when he's sober enough to do so. Ellie Skyler, who hides her gender behind the byline 'E. Skye', is an intrepid journalist driven by both passion and necessity to uncover the truth, no matter where it lies. When Pimm and Skye stumble onto a dark plot that links the city's most notorious criminal overlord with the Queen's new consort, famed scientist Sir Bertram Oswald, they soon find the forces of both high and low society arrayed against them. Can they save the city from the arcane machinations of one of history's most infamous monsters - and uncover the shocking origins of 'The Constantine Affliction'?"

INSCRIBED ON TITLE PAGE: "FOR (IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER) ____ AND ____ - WITH GOOD, BETTER, AND BEST WISHES - LIKEWISE MUCH LOVE - TED, 18/3/89". ISBN 0771069928 "Fifty-th ree-year-old Montreal lawyer Geoffrey Chadwick (last seen in Edward Phillips' acclaimed novel, 'Sunday's Child) accepts an invitation for a weekend in the country with friends. His idea of roughing it is 'complaining about room service,' b u t a t l e a st it's not another Westmunt wine and cheese party. This excursion into Quebec's cottage country becomes fraught with emotional complications and surface tensions; but the weekend proceeds as weekends do until the household is inter ru pt e d by th re e unexpected guests, in flight from the police. The intrusion of the criminal element into this upper-middle-class gathering is perfect fodder for humorist Edward Phillips. He exposes the comic and not so comic aspects of meeti ng for me r lov e rs in un expected places and retaining good manners when lives are at stake, revealing along the way some harsh yet familiar truths about human nature. His cast of wonderfully eccentric characters will delight and outrage." Inter ior - b ook s ligh tl y c rac ked at pages 78/79, otherwise clean with no other ownership marks.
