295 pp, large 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "...a colonial army came within a few snow-coverd yards of conquering Canada during the Revolutionary War...From Ethan Allen's abortive attempt to capture Montreal to Richard Montgomery and Benedict Arnold's 'full-scale' invasion, initiated by General Washington, the campaign was hampered by misunderstandings, inefficiency, petty quarrels, insubordination, as well as lack of food, armaments and trained soldiers. Not to mention bad luck. Heroic courage and fortitude were constantly betrayed by failures of discipline and cooperation...This is a meticulously detailed account that does justice to both sides. Carleton (the British governor of Canada) emerges as an able, astute, and decent man; Montgomery as an authentic hero; Arnold as a brilliant, courageous leader, who was also embittered and self-serving..."

"The real-life quest to free WWII planes (6 P-38 Lightnings and 2 B-17 Flying Fortress bombers), entombed within a Greenland glacier. They had become an Arctic legend. Tales of an entire squadron of war-birds from 1942 still sitting on the ice in Greenland were passed from one pilot to another. On a jaunt to the far north in 1980, two pilots from Atlanta, Georgia, heard the story and decided to look for the lost planes. What began as casual curiosity soon became a twelve-year adventure and a multimillion-dollar obsession. Here is the gripping, true story of how perseverance triumphed over seemingly impossible odds in pursuit of a dream." Slight bump at top of spine, very light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has wrinkling and tiny tear at top of spine - archivally taped, minor edge wrinkling, very light rubbing.

THE INHERITOR'S POWDER:  A TALE OF ARSENIC, MURDER, AND THE NEW FORENSIC SCIENCE., Hempel, Sandra.
168 Hempel, Sandra. THE INHERITOR'S POWDER: A TALE OF ARSENIC, MURDER, AND THE NEW FORENSIC SCIENCE.
New York W.W. Norton 2013 0393239713 / 9780393239713 First American Edition Very Good Very Good 
278 pp, 9 1/2" H. "In the first half of the nineteenth century, an epidemic swept Europe: arsenic poisoning. Available at any corner shop for a few pence, arsenic was so frequently used by potential beneficiaries of wills that it was nicknamed 'the inheritor's powder'. But it was difficult to prove that a victim had been poisoned, let alone to identify the contaminated food or drink since arsenic was tasteless. Then came a riveting case. (When, after three days of agony) wealthy George Bodle died, (he left) behind several heirs, including a son and grandson - both of whom were not on the best of terms with the family patriarch. The investigation brought together a colorful cast of characters: bickering relatives; a drunken, bumbling policeman; and James Marsh, an unknown but brilliant chemist who, assigned the Bodle case, attempted to create a test that could accurately pinpoint the presence of arsenic. In doing so, however, he would cause as many problems as he solved. Were innocent men and women now going to the gallows? And would George Bodle's killer be found? Incisive and wryly entertaining, science writer Sandra Hempel brings to life a gripping story of domestic infighting, wayward police behavior, a slice of Victorian history, stories of poisonings, and an unforgettable foray into the origins of forensic science." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine, small bump at top of rear hinge. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at bottom of spine, very small bump at top of rear hinge.

Longmans, Green, Toronto, 1930. 
343 pp, small 8vo (7 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "After forty years, Nina Henry looked in her mirror and found there a stranger in place of herself. Her first Paris dress had transformed her from a respectable young matron into an almost i ndecently beautiful woman. If that's what a dress does to you, she told herself, it is all wrong. It's immoral....Her husband thought so, too. He said it had changed her - made her look like a French cocotte. And when that night she met C h a l k e E wing, vacationing from his Cuban sugar ranch, Nina knew that she actually had changed - become a stranger to herself. She realized, with complete surprise, that she had never really been in love before. But despite the change, Nina co ul d no t fa c e the situation. Possessed by the necessities of the present, she was bound by the romantic conventions of the past. Demanding all, she would sacrifice nothing. How far she is successful, and where she fails, is a dramatic record o f t he ne ed fo r co mpromise, which more than any other quality, has formed the thoughts and acts of most women." Small label from bookstore on front pastedown, browning to fore-edge and bottom of text block, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spi ne, one sma ll slig ht co rner bump, light fading to color on spine and at top/bottom edges.

WOLFE AT QUEBEC., Hibbert, Christopher.
171 Hibbert, Christopher. WOLFE AT QUEBEC.
Longmans, Green, London, 1959, first edition. 
194 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates, maps. "In the early hours of the morning on 13th September 1759, a British flotilla drifted silently on the ebb tide down the St Lawrence River towards Quebec. A last and desperate at tempt was being made to capture the town before the ice closed over the river and made further operations that season impossible. By dawn over 4,000 men had disembarked from the landing craft and clambered up the steep and slippery slopes on t o t h e Plains of Abraham. The French were taken completely by surprise and the battle that followed was short and dramatic. By noon the fate of Canada had been decided. In describing the events of this day and the bitter and seemingly hopel e ss s i eg e th at preceded it, (the author) has relied entirely upon contemporary sources, some of which were not available when previous accounts were written. For this reason the story which has emerged is in some respects an unfamiliar one an d the in ci den ta l p ortrait of Wolfe, stripped of the sentimental veneer which two centuries of adulation have built around him, is one which will surprise many readers. (This book) provides not only a vivid account of what has been described a s the most im port ant eve nt in the history of the 18th century, but a fascinating portrait of one of its most famous soldiers." Book slightly cocked, bump at bottom corner of boards, very light browning to edges of text block, light wrinkling a nd bro wning at botto m of spin e, a few very tiny soiling specks on top of text block. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, two small edge tears, corner crease on front flap, light soiling, light brow nin g on spine and flap-f olds, a few small brown stains at bottom of spine.

This book gives a detailed account of his experiences stationed at Lancaster, Burton-on-Trent and Crewe, from shed labouring to firing a great variety of engine types, from M.R. 0-4-OTs to 'Duchess' Pacifics. By his own admission the life was at times sheer 'graft' - pay abysmal with working condition s frequently deplorable. The book attempts in part to convey the magnetism, that was powerful enough to outweigh all the drawbacks, while emphasising the hard reality of the work."

348 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "(T)he first complete portrait of Joey Smallwood - the most loved, feared and hated of Newfoundlanders who, through a singular will, not only changed his country's history but also held political power continuously, almost unchallenged, for twenty-one years and eight months. Smallwood was a man who, in his time, played many parts: a union organizer who became a strike breaker, a journalist who carried on a running battle with the press, a self-proclaimed socialist whose private friends included the right-wing premier of Quebec Maurice Duplessis, the Portuguese dictator Antonio Salazar, and the most controversial president of the United States, Richard Nixon. He trusted no one and believed that the only way to get somewhere was to take the wheel himself. It was this singleness of mind and purpose that saw him through two bitter and hard-fought constitutional campaigns that would see Newfoundland enter Confederation as our tenth province. Horwood cuts through the hype and half-truths, the anecdotes and legend, to get at the man and his times." Very minor wrinkling at top of spine.

"In 'Total War', Harry Howith displays an authentic, original personality: witty, perceptive, imaginative, savage, tender; and a language and technique that are crisp and elegant. His wit is from the centre of the guts, not just off the top of his head. He is mad in the sane way that still makes valuable order, right feeling, out of the sky of blue chaos.
