181 O'Flaherty, Patrick. THE ROCK OBSERVED: STUDIES IN THE LITERATURE OF NEWFOUNDLAND.
Toronto University of Toronto Press 1979 0802023517 / 9780802023513 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
222 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs, reproductions, maps. "(A) study of how Newfoundland has been pereceived over the centuries by the islanders themselves and by outsiders. (This book) offers an integrated survey of Newfoundland literature, culture, and history. It illustrates the forces that have made Newfoundland a special place and Newfoundlanders a special people, 'a breed apart'. Against a background of political, economic, and cultural history, Patrick O'Flaherty submits the conflicting literary impressions of his island to a searching critical analysis. He finds the writings of explorers, missionaries, settlers, adventurers, novelists, and poets to be limited, or enlivened, by their own characters and preconceptions. There emerges a sympathetic but unsentimental picture of Newfoundland and its people, informed throughout by O'Flaherty's keen awarenes, based on an outport upbringing, of what Newfoundland has been and is." Faint erased pencil marks and two small light ink stains on front free endpaper. Dust jacket has very light browning on rear panel and on flaps.

182 Oliver, Peter. G. HOWARD FERGUSON: ONTARIO TORY.
Toronto University of Toronto Press 1977 0802033466 / 9780802033468 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good- Inscribed By Author
501 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. Inscribed on title page: "For John Watson, / with my very best wishes, / Peter Oliver". "As premier of Ontario from 1923 to 1930, G. Howard Ferguson was the most successful, the most colourful, and perhaps the ablest of Canadian politicians of his time. Largely as a result of his leadership, the Ontario Tories emerged from the debacle of their 1919 defeat to eliminate virtually all political opposition - and launch the Conservative dynasty in Ontario. Peter Oliver's study of Ferguson's life and times provides both a revealing picture of a political professional of driving ambition and rare talent and a commentary on a largely rural society dealing with the challenges of industrialization and urbanization." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine, previous owner's name stamp on free front endpaper, minor glue residue on endpapers, minor browning to edges of text block. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling, light edge browning, one very small tear archivally taped some rubbing with color loss at bottom of spine.

276 pp, small 4to (10" H), soft cover. ISBN 1555714986 "On 7 August 1942, the amphibious assault on Tulagi and Guadalcanal was the first American offensive in World War II against the rampaging forces of the Empire of Japan. The enemy retaliatio n - from the sea, air and on land - was swift, fierce and bloody. Yet many soldiers contend the greatest struggle of all was confronting the 'Green Hell' - a reeking, rotting and malaria-infested jungle that tested any soldier's strength and c o u r a g e. Against all odds, the young and inadequately trained and supplied 1st Marine Division, commanded by Lt. General Archer Vandergrift and the Army's equally inexperienced 164th Infantry Regiment held onto Guadalcanal for four awesome m o nt hs a ga in st the best trained and seasoned forces that Japan sent in. Every aspect of the battle remains impressive. From the assistance of the Australian Coastwatchers who hid away in dangerous observation points along the Solomon's chain o f i sla nds to th e A rmy and 2nd Marine Division's actions in the last two months of the campaign." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very minor edge wear, one light crease down spine, slight curl at for e-e dge of c over s. Very Goo d

"In this exciting new version, specially written for the Heirloom Library, Robin pits his wits against the Norman tyrants - Prince John, his barons, Oswald Montdragon and Guy of Gisborne, and the wicked Sheriff of Nottingham - in a series of exciting escapades. An ambush in the green depths of Sherwood, which leaves the Sheriff the lighter of his money-bags, a n assault on the mighty fortress of Gisborne to rescue Will Scarlett, the winning of Maid Marian from the clutches of the Normans - these are some of the adventures which involve Robin, Will, Little John, Friar Tuck, Alan-a-Dale and the oth e r b o l d S axons. Life in Sherwood is merry, with mead and ale, and good venison from the royal deer; and there are the tournaments in Nottingham to provide excitement - particularly when Prince John offers a Silver Arrow for the finest marksm an i n B ri ta in , a nd Robin decides to test his skill in spite of the price on his head...."

156 pp, small 4to (10 3/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 074751030X Colour and b&w illustrations. "....provides a historical context for prostitution in the modern Western world, and explores the sexual politics of the oldest profession. ( Philip) calls on testimony from prostitutes, clients and reformers from the last three centuries, in Britain, America and continental Europe, to build a revealing account of this complex and many-sided phenomenon. The emphasis is on the hu m a n s t o r y behind the bare commercial transaction. The author's non-judgemental stance allows us to see prostitutes as they see themselves: as working girls. The text is amplified and illuminated by over sixty illustrations, many in colour, i nc lu d in g wo rk s by artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas, Picasso, Grosz and Kitaj, and master photographers such as Brassai and E.J. Bellocq. Anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to be a prostitute, or has pondered the qu est ion s o f pow er , c ont ro l , independence and slavery that prostitution raises, should read this book."

London Frontline 2009 1848325452 / 9781848325456 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
280 pp, 9 7/16" H. B&w photographs, maps. "This fascinating collection of letters traces the exchanges between a young subaltern on the Western Front, Gerard 'Ged' Garvin, and his mother and father at home in London. Correspondence was eagerly awaited by all: Ged savoured letters home like 'Jim Hawkins trickling the doubloons through his fingers'. Equally, his mother and father were fearful that each letter they received would be the last. Few editions of First World War letters include those from home as well as those from the front. That Ged's father was J.L. Garvin - editor of the Observer newspaper and an important figure in pre-war politics - adds a further dimension to this compelling set of material. During the war J.L. Garvin was in almost daily contact with those at the head of political and military affairs (he dined with Churchill frequently) and hence his letters gave Ged an insider's view of the nerve centre. The letters are remarkable for their reflections on the war and its management - or in Garvin's view, its mismanagement - and for the descriptions and discussion of major figures of the day. His mother, Christina, meanwhile wrote of family and domestic affairs showing the impact of war on everyday life." The correspondence sadly came to an end when Ged was killed in action in July of 1916. Tiny scuff on front edge of spine, small shallow dent on rear cover. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine, small shallow dent on rear panel.

30 pp, 7 7/8" H, hard cover in dust jacket. One of nine hundred copies printed on Byronic White Laid Paper. B&w illustrations. "E.J. Pratt's first poems reflect the seafaring environment in which he passed his youth, 'Newfoundland Verse' being a collection of lyrics and narratives of seafaring and fishing life. 'The Witches' Brew' is an imaginative and Bacchanalian fantasia. 'Titans' contains two poems of epic struggles and was received by the critics of the London 'Times' and the 'Manche ster Guardian' with such praise as 'sublime' and 'a remarkable feat'. His latest volume, 'The Iron Door: An Ode', introduces a new and deeper note into Canadian poetry. It is philosophic in tone, and will doubtless exert a strong influence u p o n t h e development of poetry in Canada."

"Alongside the Avro Lancaster, Handley Page's Halifax bore the brunt of 'Bomber' Harris' strategic air offensiv e against Nazi Germany, and over 6,000 were built, running to more than 20 variants. Between 1941 and 1945, Bomber Command's Halifaxes dropped over 227,000 tons of bombs on Axis targets and flew almost 80,000 sorties. In (this book) Brian R a p i e r e xamines the varying roles and theatres of operations in which this most versatile but much-maligned aircraft played its part - from the flak-torn night skies over northwest Europe to the swirling sands of the North American desert; f r om t he b le ak wa tery wastes of the North Atlantic to top-secret 'cloak & dagger' operations. Supported by the lucid recollections of former Halifax crewmen and an impressive selection of photographs and tone profiles, (it) provides a fascin at ing in sig ht int o t h e l ife of this famous bomber and those who flew and died in her."

418 pp, 8 1/2" H. B&w and colour illustrations. "This Second Edition covers painting to 1980. A long final chapter treats a crucial fifteen years when there developed in Canada a tremendous interest in other art forms and an apparent falling off of interest in painting. In fact the cry was hear - throughout the western world - that painting was dead. It turned out, however, that this was far from true. Dennis Reid discusses the work of established artists who produced steadily in the period - including Jack Bush, Jack Chambers, Greg Curnoe, Gershon Iskowitz, John Meredith, Guido Molinari, Jack Shadbolt, and Claude Tousignant - as well as new arrivals on the scene who have since joined the ranks of leading Canadian artists. Among the more recent painters discussed are David Bolduc, John Boyle, David Craven, Paterson Ewen, Ivan Eyre, Yves Gaucher, John Hall, Ron Martin, Michael Morris, Norval Morrisseau, Christopher Pratt, Shirley Wiitasalo, and Tim Zuck. Enriched by this overview, and by many additions to the original text, (this) is the widest-ranging and most authoritiative handbook available. Lucid, interesting, and informative, it is still a pleasure to read from first to last." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very small bump on bottom edge of both boards.
