21 Epp, Frank H. MENNONITES IN CANADA, 1920-1940: A PEOPLE'S STRUGGLE FOR SURVIVAL.
Toronto Macmillan of Canada 1982 0771597088 / 9780771597084 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 
640 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs, tables. "(1920-1940) was a critical period when the Mennonites' survival in Canada was under a variety of external threats. It was also an age in which Mennonite history was marked by fragmentation even in their own communities. During this twenty-year timespan the battle for separate schooling led to a significant emigration of Canadian Mennonites to Latin America, while another struggle was waged with our immigration authorities to allow the entry of Russian Mennonites into Canada. The book also covers the impact of the Depression on the Mennonites and their efforts to preserve their culture and racial identity. The book ends with the response of the Mennonites to the outbreak of the Second World War." Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very light rubbing/soiling.

MY HISTORY:  A MEMOIR OF GROWING UP., Fraser, Antonia.
23 Fraser, Antonia. MY HISTORY: A MEMOIR OF GROWING UP.
Doubleday Canada 2015 0385685173 / 9780385685177 First Canadian Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good+ 
268 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w photographs. "Born Antonia Pakenham (in 1932), the eldest of eight children of the future Lord and Lady Longford, her childhood was spent in Oxford, where her father was a don at Christ Church. Evacuation at the beginning of the war to a romantic Elizabethan manor house nearby was an inspiration for historical imaginings. There were adventures in Anglo-Ireland at Dunsany Castle and Pakenham Hall, each offering her treasured links to the past which became private obsessions. North Oxford wartime life included four years as one of the few girls then admitted to the Dragon School for boys, followed by time at a convent school after her family's conversion to Catholicism. Her father joined the Labour Government in 1945 as a Minister, which provided an odd background for exploits such as working in a Bond Stree hat shop and a season as a self-made debutante. A job in publishing, by a fortunate coincidence, followed Oxford University and the book ends with the publishing of 'Mary Queen of Scots', which became a worldwide bestseller - to general amazement (including the author's). This magical memoir, told with inimitable humour and style, will take many readers back to their own discovery of History. It is an unforgettable account of one person's journey towards becoming a writer - and a historian." Very minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor browning at bottom edge of boards, small very light soiling mark on front board, very light browning to fore-edge of text block. Dust jacket has very minor wrinkling at bottom of rear panel.

24 Gatland, Kenneth W. and Kunesch, Anthony Ma SPACE TRAVEL.
New York Philosophical Library 1953 Second Impression. Hard Cover Good Good J.W. Wood and R.A. Smith. 
205 pp, 8 3/4" H. B&w photographs, drawings, tables. "Here, described with enthusiasm and authority, is not only the whole history of rocket development from the days of the first discovery of an explosive mixture before the birth of Christ, but also the latest information on the harnessing of the tremendous new propellants available today, which may soon make journeys into space a commonplace of human life. Both (authors) are technical experts in their own fields. While their working hours are concerned with terrestrial problems, their scientific curiosity and knowledge are also beamed into the outer reaches of the Ether. They have accordingly produced a series of blueprints for the construction of an artificial satellite freely revolving in its own orbit around the Earth, and for the great liners which will take off from it on their flashing journeys to starry destinations in our own solar system and even, perhaps, beyond. There are nearly 100 (illustrations): historical records of early experiments, magnificent modern photographs of the latest achievements, and in addition a series of exciting drawings, specially made for the book, of space stations and space ships, which not only fire the imagination, but are precise in every detail." Light to moderate edge wear, wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, 1" bump/creases at bottom edge of rear board, two tiny corner bumps. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has moderate edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top edge, one or two tiny edge tears archivally taped, light rubbing, minor soiling, very small bump to bottom edge of text block.

193 pp, 7 1/8" H. Red covers with black lettering on front board. "Man undoubtedly posseses, in however rudimentary a form, certain supersensory powers. The unfoldment of such powers can be hastened by using 'Raja Yoga' as the chief means. If they are not present, the aspirant can diligently supply the necessary conditions for their unfoldment. The broadcast talks of the author included in this volume offer guidance in the management of human life and the development of character needed for such an unfoldment. However, we should remember, that the development of psychic powers is not man's supreme evolutionary attaiment. Spirituality is the goal and psychic powers are but the by-product of the process of obtaining spiritual vision and realization." Section headings: Introduction; Supersensory Powers, Their Nature and Application to Human Problems; Supersensory Powers as Means of Gaining Knowledge; The Normal and the Enforced Development of Supersensory Powers; The Spiritual Powers of Man, Their Awakening, Unfoldment and Culmination; The Way to Health and Happiness.

THE GRAIL LEGEND., Jung, Emma & Von Franz, Marie-Louise.  Translator: Andrea Dykes.
30 Jung, Emma & Von Franz, Marie-Louise. Translator: Andrea Dykes. THE GRAIL LEGEND.
Boston Sigo Press 1986 093843408X / 9780938434085 Second Edition Soft Cover Very Good 
452 pp, 9" H. B&w illustrations. "The Holy Grail and its quest is a legend which has had a powerful impact on our civilization and culture. The Grail itself is an ancient Celtic symbol of plenty as well as a Christian symbol of redemption and eternal life, the chalice which caught the blood of the crucified Christ. The story of the Grail sheds profound light on man's search for the supreme value of life, for that which makes life most meaningful. Writing in a clear and readable style, two leading women of the Jungian school of psychology present this legend as a living myth that is meaningful to modern life. We encounter such universal figures as the Fool (the naive young Perceval), the Wise Old Man (the Hermit Gornemanz), the Virgin Maiden (Blancheflor), the Loathly Damsel, and such important themes as the Waste Land, the Trinity, and the vessel of the Grail. Weaving together narrative and interpretation, the authors show us how the legend reflects not only fundamental human problems but also the dramatic psychic events which form the background of our Christian culture." Interior - one tiny corner crease, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - minor soiling on bottom of text block, tiny dent at top of spine, very faint creases on spine, one tiny corner crease.

159 pp, 10" H. B&w and colour illustrations - photographs, reproductions, maps. "Two great narrative themes, which link the sacred and the secular, have been passed down to us from the Dark Ages. These are the stories of the heroic, godlike Arthur and of a mystic object of quest, the Holy Grail. John Matthews has created an easily understood survey of the origins and merging of these epic themes and stories It is a richly woven tapestry of myth and legend, and of love and desire - both sacred and profane. It covers city and temple, knights and monks, and ranges far and wide, from Camelot to Carbonek. In gathering together the strands that make up the stories, the author has examined many of the hundred or so extant texts. He has selected from these - some still untranslated and obscure - to show how the two great themes changed and developed down the centuries as they became inextricably joined. (This book) provides a fascinating survey as well as including five of the traditional stories, retold by the author. In addition, there is a full summary of all sources and an extensive bibliography."
