WYCLIFFE AND THE SCHOOLGIRLS., Burley, W.J.
21 Burley, W.J. WYCLIFFE AND THE SCHOOLGIRLS.
London Victor Gollancz 1976 0575020482 / 9780575020481 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
191 pp, 8" H. Red boards with gilt lettering on spine. "Debbie Joyce, a young cabaret singer, is found strangled. A week later, in the same city, Elaine Bennett, a nurse, is similarly murdered. Immediately the press raise the alarm that a psychopathic killer is on the loose. But Chief Superintendent Wycliffe is not convinced that this is the answer. While police precautions are greatly increased, he quietly goes his own way, probing into the possibility, however remote, that there is some logical connection - logical at least to the murderer - between the two deaths. His absorbing investigation takes him into the past of the dead women, and finally to a 'community holiday' which a group of schoolgirls spent together. And nasty little beasts some of them were, playing a cruel trick on the teacher in charge and on one of the other girls. Can this remote escapade have triggered murder in the present? And if so, why and how? And are there other murders to come? Wycliffe learns a lot about the strangeness of human nature during his exploration of the world of the schoolgirls, and the narrative builds up to a tense climax." Faint tanning to pastedowns and half of each free endpaper, two very tiny edge tears at top corner of page leaf 37/38. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has some minor edge wrinkling, minor tanning on inside of flaps and at top inside edge.

Toronto Ryerson Press 1959 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good- Good- 
204 pp, 8 5/8" H. B&w photographs. "Urged many times to write the story of his life, Mr. Robert Campbell, now in his eighty-eighth year, finally acceded to the request. The result is this very readable book of reminiscence, rich in humour and history, adventure and anecdote, told by a master storyteller. In a breezy and colloquial style the author tells of his experiences in and around Banff, of his political life, experiences in the army during World War I, and his encounters with important visitors in the Canadian Rockies. This is not only a fascinating story, but a valuable record of early days when the Rockies were just beginning to attract attention as a tourist centre for the world." A few scattered very small light stains on page 49, light edge wear, small bump at three corners, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear/wrinkling, creases at top of rear panel, several edge tears archivally taped, light rubbing/soiling.

He fell in love with the country, its people and customs, and stayed there until his death in 1946. McPherson was a born storyteller. In the letters he wrote home, from which this selection has been made, he not only itemised his own life but illumined the history of his time. In Cairo as a teacher, he used his long ho l i d a y s t o travel all over the Middle East and Asia Minor. The First World War found him first at Gallipoli, brilliantly describing the doomed campaign, and then later in the Sinai desert. The last episodes of his career make equally enthra ll in g re ad in g w he n , as Head of the Secret Police in Cairo with the rank of Bimbashi (Major), he investigates drug dealers, exotic Madames and intriguers in the brothels of Cairo, and the burgeoning Egyptian revolutionaries."

London Oxford University Press 1968 Reprint Hard Cover Very Good Very Good+ P.A. Jobson. 
231 pp, 7 7/8" H. Dust jacket design by William Stobbs. B&w drawings. "Bari, a half-breed boy of the North American Indian country, has two driving passions: his love of the wild animals of his home in Northern Ontario, and his great urge to draw them. In these he is encouraged by Paddy, the friendly trapper who brings him up from the age of nine. But it is only after going unwillingly to school and then learning that success does not come without work and hardship that Bari eventually begins to see ahead of him the life on an artist which he had dreamed about for so long. Miss Carruthers taught for many years in a school for Indians in the Canadian bushland. She is a natural storyteller, and (this book) reflects vividly her profound knowledge and affection for the Indians and the wild life of the country." First published in 1952 and, therefore, a product of its times as regards certain references and viewpoints. Tiny foxing mark on front board, a few tiny dents on bottom edge of boards and text block, three tiny corner bumps. Dust jacket has very minor edge wrinkling.

28 Coetzer, Owen. THE ANGLO-BOER WAR: THE ROAD TO INFAMY, 1899-1900. COLENSO, SPIOENKOP, VAALKRANTZ, PIETERS, BULLER AND WARREN.
London Arms and Armour 1996 1854093665 / 9781854093660 First British Edition Hard Cover Very Good - Very Good- 
294 pp, 8vo (9" H). B&w photographs, maps. "On the 'Road to Infamy' could be found the very best of British colonial military and administrative talents - 'Bobs' Roberts - a hero of the Indian campaigns, Sir George White, the 'Blimp ' - like Redvers Henry Buller - a popular and highly regarded officer, Sir Charles Warren - one time Chief Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, and others. It was not a road they enjoyed taking. The Natal campaign of the Second Boer War, and the names of Spioenkop, Colenso, Vaalkrantz and Ladysmith, would blight the reputations of these men and lead to their appearance at a Royal Commission of Enquiry in London in 1902/3 where they were asked why an apparently one-sided conflict could have cost so much in terms of men, money and material. This fresh investigative study of this enthralling passage of history sheds new light on the controversial strategies, directives, opinions and reports which permeated every element of the campaign and, as such, adds significantly to literature on the subject." A few pages with soft crease at top corner, slight cigarette odor, slight bump and wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, two corner with very small bump, small heavy bump at bottom corner of front board, light edge wear - mainly on bottom edge. Dust jacket light wrinkling/creasing - mainly at top edge, light rubbing.

THE WASHINGTON STING., Conconi, Charles and House, Toni.
32 Conconi, Charles and House, Toni. THE WASHINGTON STING.
Coward, McCann & Geoghegan, New York, 1979, second impression. 
255 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w illustrations. "Here is the dramatic and only inside account of the undercover police-FBI fencing operation - featuring cops in the guise of syndicate soldiers - whose stunning success put the 'Washington Sting' in headlines across the nation. Word was out on the street in Washington, D.C., that one of the best fences in years was working out of a warehouse on 25th Place, NE. PFF Inc., run by 'mob-connected' Italians, was buying up stolen guns, office equipment, anything with resale value. Thieves all over the Washington area were soon submitting to the hard dealing of the gun-wielding Mafiosi, looking for quick cash and an association with the mighty aristocracy of crime. As the fence's main man, Pasquale Larocca, critically examined the typewriter or rifle offered across his bulletproof counter, and in one corner Mike Franzino cradled his shotgun in casual warning, there was no suspicion of a weapon deadly in a different way: a videotape machine which recorded every transaction from behind an unnoticed one-way mirror. 'Pasquale Larocca' and 'Mike Franzino' were the aliases of two of the undercover team of police and FBI men organized to fight Washington's high larceny statistics down at the underworld source. And five months after the opening of 'Police-FBI Fencing, Incognito' - five months of tense bargaining with suspicious professionals and comic encounters with fawning flunkies and prostitutes - the fence closed around more than 200 criminals invited to meet a New York 'Don' at a party hosted by Larocca. They met, instead, with police. The single account of the caper written with the cooperation of the police and FBI and with full access to the incriminating videotapes, here is a true story of police politics and mayhem, streetwise ingenuity and volatile temperaments, told to authentic narrative effect with complete, uncensored detail." Very light browning to edges of textblock, light wrinkling at top of spine, minor rubbing. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling, slight fading to spine color, very light browning on flap-folds and edges of rear panel, minor soiling. Very Good/Very Good -

287 pp, 8vo (8" H). "In and around a very English village, murder follows murder, and corpse is piled upon corpse. Fen, whom Crispin fans will remember well, is once again the man who finally sorts out the very intricate puzzle; but for much of the book he is an accessory after the fact, and in a peculiarly gruesome manner. The Rector, the Major, and even old Gobbo, take a hand at playing detective, much to the confusion of Detective-Superintendant Ling. And the lively yarn culminates in a chase to end all chases - involving the local hunt, hunt saboteurs, a herd of rampaging cows, a motor-cycle scramble, a runaway burglar, a team of bloody-minded engineers, the major on horseback, and the police, variously motivated." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, a few tiny foxing marks on top of text block at spine, previous owner's name in ink on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine, soft crease at top of front panel.

Toronto Coles 1973 Facsimile Edition. Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good- 
312 pp, 8 5/8" H. Burgundy cloth with black title block, gilt lettering/banding on spine, gilt lettering/banding on front board - one of the Coles Canadian Collection. Fold-out map. A facsimile of the edition published by Cassell and Company, London, 1916. "When Inspector Burton Deane left for Regina in 1883 to join the staff of the headquarters of the Royal North-West Mounted Police, he was told in Ottawa that he would find the Mounties an 'armed mob'. He was not disappointed. The ten-year-old force did not have one standing order or regulation, and it was his responsibility to compose regulations for the force, and to establish Mounted Police law. As adjutant to the commissioner and supervisor of the Regina post, he was responsible for establishing all administrative procedure, and he was always at the nerve-centre of every major development on the Prairies in those years. He administered the white man's dealings with the Indians, and in 1885 the captured Riel was put in his custody. His intimate contact with his prisoner makes fascinating reading. But shortly afterward, conflict with the controversial and difficult new commissioner, Lawrence Herchmer, led to his transfer to Lethbridge, where he was Supervisor for 'fourteen happy years'. His ardent persecution of cattle and horse thieves and smugglers led him to arrest a good friend of a Dominion Cabinet minister, winning him a transfer to the remote and tiny outpost of Maple Creek. There he patrolled a large section of the Canadian Pacific Railway, until friendlier forces in government assigned him to command of the post at Calgary." Faint line indentation across spine. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, knife cut across spine - archivally taped on inside, very small tear at bottom of rear flap-fold - archivally taped.

177 pp, 11 1/4" H. "Saskatoon began as a vision of the Temperance Colonization Society. Its members formulated a scheme for a colony in the West where a way of life free from the evils of alcohol might be fostered. Early in the spring of 1882, an advance party travelled by rail and wagon to examine their grant of land and to choose the administrative site for the settlement. By the beginning of the twentieth century, the temperance ideals had become secondary to boosterism. By 1905 discussions were underway to amalgamate the original Nutana settlement with 'Saskatoon' and Riversdale on the west side of the river. Their combined population of 4,500 allowed Saskatoon a charter under city status in 1906. By 1908 the city was served by three railway companies and the 'Hub City' station was one of the busiest in the West. (This book) brings the story of the city to life through nearly 300 photographs. It registers changes through two world wars, during the periods of prosperity and recession, into the optimism of the fifties and sixties and the more speculative expansion of the seventies."
