186 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). (The author) "here recalls some of the tales that are told on the Six Nations Reserve on the Grand River in Ontario. Near the reserve is the town of Brantford, which is named after the Mohawk officer who led his people's fight for King George in the American War of Independence. These are stories that belong to twentieth-century farmers, shopkeepers, and high-steel workers who have never lost their communion with the natural world, which for them is also the world of the spirit. The stories' integration of traditional and present-day realities is beautifully realized in the remarkable pencil illustrations of Gary Miller, another native of the Six Nations Reserve."

154 pp, small 8vo (7 7/8" H). B&w illustrations by Neville Dear, dust jacket design by Gareth Floyd. Translation of "Shrimp le Corsaire", first published in 1954. "This is an epic tale of buccaneer adventure on the high seas; it is the story of Viscount Saint-Elme, known as the 'Malamok', who had once owned a fine fleet of privateers and used them in the service of his king, Louis XIV of France. But one of his officers proved treacherous, causing the Malamok's eldest son to be unjustly dishonoured and imprisoned. Thenceforward, misfortune dogged the Malamok who had withdrawn from the king's service and become a pirate. All of his ships but one were destroyed, and the old buccaneer knew only one aim: that of vengeance so that the family name might be cleared. Accompanied by the boy Shrimp, his young protege, the Malamok set sail on his last remaining ship, the 'Remailleuse', on a voyage of piracy and battle, seeking to destroy his enemy." Light browning to edges of text block, slight darkening to boards edges, two tiny light liquid marks on top of text block, tiny bump to top edge of both boards.

Toronto HarperCollins 1992 000215787X / 9780002157872 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good 
552 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w photographs, reproductions. "For some, like the aging man-about-town Agar Adamson, and the promising politician Talbot Papineau, the war was both the climax and the denouement of their careers. For others, like Harold Innis, just off an Ontario farm, the horror of the trenches changed the direction and purpose of their lives. For Vancouver secretary Grace MacPherson, war was a great adventure; for Ottawa socialite Ethel Chadwick, it was a wave that pushed her aside and left her stranded for life. For Max Aitken, better known as Lord Beaverbrook, it was an opportunity to be exploited. For Newfoundlander Owen Steele, it was an heroic duty that ended in a rain of bullets at Beaumont-Hamel. Sandra Gwyn has woven the intimate threads of these lives into a composite portrait that is overwhelming in its power." Minor wrinkle at top of hinges. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, tiny scuff on front panel.

436 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Family tree, b&w plates. "King Alfonso is one of the most outstanding figures now alive, in contemporary political history, in sport, and in social life. He is much beloved and equally disliked , as recent events in Spain have proved. This study, written by a very near relation, in collaboration with a well-known English author, shows the King as he really is, in public and in private life; it shows what his aims are, and how he h a s t r i e d to carry them out; and explains the present difficulties in Spain and the collapse of the monarchy. The authors, in writing this book, have had privileges and sources of information which have been given to no one else, and they h av e ha d p er so na l experience of the revolution. It is, therefore, essentially an authoritative work, as well as being immensely interesting both from the historic and the human points of view."

352 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w plates, maps/battle plans. "This important study of the cause and effects of Napoleon's removal from power tracks the significant events in his illustrious career through to his downfall and, while doing so, charts the clandestine diplomatic intrigues linking Britain, Austria, Russia and Prussia in the quest for the Emperor's demise. Using substantial new research, (the author) questions many of the established views in Napoleonic literature to date. By disclosing hitherto secret terrorist organizations, uncovering the attempts to assassinate Napoleon, highlighting unbridled political duplicity, and demonstrating a host of previously misinterpreted signals and actions, he instigates a fresh assessment of the fall of Napoleon, new reasons to consider how much it was self-inflicted and how much it became inevitable given the combined forces - 'friend' and well as 'foe' - ranged against him. However great his military campaigns, how often he was victorious on the battle-field, Napoleon was destined to be deposed by political connivance and personal betrayal."

The Timekeepers, the terrorist underground from the 27th century, have traveled backward once again to try to sabotage the course of history." 5.

His plot to assassinate Sam Adams, Ben Franklin and George Washington will detroy every dream of the Thirteen Colonies - and cancel the United States of America! Can the Time Commandos wage war against a phantom? And worse yet, can they stop a cosmic catastrophe that will make the Big Band look like a firecracker?"
