GHOSTS OF OLD EUROPE., Holzer, Hans.
141 Holzer, Hans. GHOSTS OF OLD EUROPE.
New York Dorset 1992 0880297182 / 9780880297189 First Edition Very Good Very Good 
352 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). "(O)ffers a very different kind of tour to the armchair traveler. Wander through the haunted castles and cottages of Europe with Hans Holzer, the world's most famous psychic investigator, and explore a full range of psychic phenomena from the spirits of the British Isles to the haunts of Imperial Vienna. In England, Anne Boleyn's legendary ghost walks headless within the Tower of London; a procession of transparent monks appears in the Cathedral of Winchester, where no monks have trod since the sixteenth century; and Bloody Queen Mary still visits the four-poster bed where she slept in the dark days of 1553. At Kilkea Castle in Kildare, it is said that the Wizard Earl and his companions ride at night and will return someday from the beyond to 'put things right in Ireland'. Room No. 2 in the Hotel de l'Europe in Avignon holds a shocking surprise for the unwary guest; and in Paris, No. 3 avenue Montaigne offers a special concert of ghostly piano music from a spectral grand. Ghost occur wherever great tragedy has left an unfortunate person stranded between the next world and this one, someone who has not yet been freed from their emotional turmoil. The true accounts presented in this book are based on Dr. Holzer's personal investigations." One page leaf with two very small scollops at fore-edge. Dust jacket has very light rubbing, minor browning to inside edges.

FRENCH CANADA AND THE ST. LAWRENCE: HISTORIC, PICTURESQUE AND DESCRIPTIVE., Hopkins, J. Castell.  Introduction by Cameron Nish.
142 Hopkins, J. Castell. Introduction by Cameron Nish. FRENCH CANADA AND THE ST. LAWRENCE: HISTORIC, PICTURESQUE AND DESCRIPTIVE.
Toronto Coles 1974 Facsimile Edition. Fine Very Good 
431 pp, 8 5/8" H. Burgundy cloth with gilt lettering/banding on spine and front board - one of the Coles Canadian Collection.B&w illustrations. A facsimile of the edition published by John Winston Co., Philadelphia, 1913 - with a new introduction for the Coles Canadiana Collection. "After establishing the physical setting of French Canada and its natural splendor, Hopkins examines and describes the types - religious, social, psychological - who were responsible for the creation of French Canada, and French Canadian society. As themes, Hopkins emphsizes the discoverers Cartier and Champlain, the explorers - fur traders Lasalle, and LaVerendrye, the roles of the Church, the martyrs, the early government administrators. Hopkins' views and sentiments reflected the philosophies of many of his contemporaries, including John A. Macdonald, Wilfrid Laurier and Sir Thomas Chapais. Despite the strong and steady current of Imperial sentiment prevailing, an incipient Canadian nationalism was emerging, fostered by the creation of national heroes, villains and saints." Dust jacket has minor edge wear, light wrinkling/rubbing at bottom of rear hinge.

339 pp, 9" H. "Les Forces d'operations speciales (SOF) n'ont jamais fait partie integrante des capacities militaires du Canada. Des unites speciales ont certes existe a certaines periodes de notre histoire, mais elles ont toujours oeuvre dans l'ombre, a la limite de la reconnaissance. Elles ont presque toujours ete marginalisees. Cependant, la tragique attaque lancee par des terroristes sur les tours jumelles du World Trade Center a New York, le 11 septembre 2001, a considerablement modifie leur image. Les SOF sont devenues depuis des forces de premier plan. Les essais qui forment cet ouvrage concernant les SOF ont ete rediges par des experts en la matiere. Pris collectivement, ils constituent un recueil exhaustif d'informations et de connaissances sur les SOF canadiennes et sur des questions et sujets qui s'y rapportent. En somme, l'ouvrage permet au lecteur d'acquerir une solide base sur la theorie, le contexte historique et l'evolution des SOF, y compris les evenements qui favorisent leur expansion."

OUT OF SEASON: A TRAVELLER'S TALE OF A WINTER JOURNEY., Hughes, Spike.
145 Hughes, Spike. OUT OF SEASON: A TRAVELLER'S TALE OF A WINTER JOURNEY.
London Robert Hale 1956 First Edition Very Good - Very Good - 
156 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs. "The term 'out of season' is purely relative, of course. The winter's journey which took Spike Hughes and his wife to Sicily and back, by way of Germany and Austria, was made at a time of year which, so far from being out of season, was at the very height of the seaons for their purpose: the study of famous Italian opera houses in full operatic cry, as it were. In the course of a journey of some 4,000 miles (they) found many things to delight them, not the least important being an atmosphere of leisure and an opportunity to stand and stare which can be achieved only out of season. So it was that by visiting in winter places which normally thrive as summer resorts he found time to learn many things which would 'come in useful' to anybody willing to profit from his experiences and likely to spend holidays in those places at a more conventional time of year. In the end, the difference between visiting Italy in winter was the difference between being fussed over and spoiled as a guest and being allowed to live one's own life without having to distinguish one day from another. And that, Spike Hughes believes, is the greatest luxury any form of travel can take." Scattered foxing marks on edges of textblock, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, light browning on endpapers. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling and a few tiny tears, light rubbing, light soiling on rear panel, foxing on inside surface.

346 pp, 9 1/4" H. "(C)ontinues the well-established tradition for humour and adventure as Bartholomew Bandy pursues his mad destiny in India. It's 1925 and Bandy is working for the Maharajah of Jhamjarh, trying to set up and operate a new air force while sidestepping the short-sighted protests of the British government in India. The new air force certainly comes in handy when the nefarious neighboring state of Khaliwar decides to attack. But they haven't counted on Jhamjarh's secret weapon - the unorthodox methods and outrageous behavior of Bartholomew Bandy. Despite these distractions, the mystical visions of India have their effect on Bandy, leaving him a changed man. The underlying element of anger which has always been a part of his humor is finally resolved - which makes for a very satisfactory ending to the story of Bartholomew Bandy." Light edge wear at top/bottom of spine, very small scuff on front board near spine. Dust jacket has small crease at top of spine, tiny dint at bottom of front hinge.

312 pp, oblong 8vo (8" H x 9" D), soft cover. ISBN 1896941141 B&w drawings by the author/artist. "As a boy growing up on the Prairies in the Depression, (the author) dreamed of going to sea, became a sea cadet at HMS Undaunted in Calgary, and in 1938 joined the Royal Canadian Navy as an officer cadet, training with the Royal Navy in Britain until 1941. His wartime service began on HMS Renown in the South Atlantic, searching for the Graf Spee, and off Norway engaging the battleships Scharnh orst and Gneisenau. He lost all his possessions when Renown was damaged by shellfire. He served on HMS Matabele and HMS Hood, leaving that ship weeks before she was sunk with all hands in battle with the Bismarck. Returning to Canada in la t e 1 9 4 1 , he was appointed to HMCS Ottawa, a destroyer on convoy escort duty in the North Atlantic. A year later she was sunk with great loss of life in a battle with German submarines. Jenson was among the lucky ones plucked from the Atlant ic b y a B ri ti sh corvette. He joined HMCS Niagara as executive officer, and in late 1943 briefly commanded the corvette Long Branch before going on to the destroyer Algonquin as executive officer, taking part in raids on German ships, includi ng the T irp itz , a nd being one of the ships to open fire on the shore defences in the invasion of Normandy. Algonquin completed the war raiding German shipping and escorting Allied convoys to Murmansk. The book is illustrated with L.B. Jenson' s l umin ous lin e dr awin gs, as well as sketches and diagrams illustrating uniforms, insignia and so on. His book is a valuable record not only of how ships fought the battles of the Atlantic, but of life on board, where men had to live under d iffi cult cond ition s for week s on end - all seen through the eyes of an energetic and engaging young officer."
