ELIZABETH POSTUMA SIMCOE 1762-1850:  A BIOGRAPHY.   (POSTHUMA.), Fryer, Mary Beacock.
204 Fryer, Mary Beacock. ELIZABETH POSTUMA SIMCOE 1762-1850: A BIOGRAPHY. (POSTHUMA.)
Dundurn Press, Toronto, 1989. 
276 pp, 8vo (9" H), soft cover. ISBN 1550020641 B&w and colour plates, maps. "Elizabeth Poshuma Simcoe was a remarkable woman. Raised in a wealthy and genteel English family, as a young wife, she accompanied her husband, the career soldier John Graves Simcoe, on his posting as the first lieutenant-governor of Upper Canada - then a sparsely populated backwoods outpost of the empire. She embraced with enthusiasm this chance for adventure and her diaries and her plentiful sketches reflect thi s joy of discovery in this 'new land'. The Simcoes returned to England in 1796 to await further imperial postings. John Graves Simcoe died in 1806 and his widow lived on to 1850 as a wealthy English countrywoman. While her popular Canadi a n d i a r i e s remain a valuable source for this intriguing biography, other materials exist that have rarely been looked at over the decades. Of considerable interest are the hundreds of letters Elizabeth's best friend, Mary Anne Bruges, sent to C a na da , an d hu ndreds of Elizabeth's own letters have survived, as well as those of her daughters and sons. From these neglected sources emerges the story of an energetic, involved woman. Her life divides into two phases. As the wife of Joh n G ra ves Si mc oe, E liz abeth is a sensible lady of the Age of Reason, pursuing the picturesque with sketch book and water colours. Following Simcoe's death, her long life as a widow finds meaning in fostering the well-being of her church.

206 Gage, S.R. FORGOTTEN PLACES IN THE NORTH.
Mosaic, (Oakville, Ontario, 2001). 
166 pp, 8vo, soft cover. B&w photos. "Across the broad expanse of Canada's North there are few physical reminders of the rich history of the land and its people. (This book) examines three rare cases where heritage structures have withstood the ravages of time and an unforgiving climate. York Factory was the key staging area of the Hudson's Bay Company for over two hundred years. From its construction in 1830, the 'Depot' warehouse held a wealth of trade goods that lured the trappers of the Northwest. Herschel Island, off the north coast of the Yukon, became the unlikely winter home to hundreds of Yankee whalers in the 1890s. The buildings of this abandoned settlement still remain. The Mid-Canada Line was an electronic Cold War bastion that stretched the length of Canada's 55th parallel. This national project stood against American ambition to the south and the Soviet threat from the north." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor rubbing to covers, tiny stain to fore-edge of textblock with slight migration into margin of a few pages, spine flat and uncreased. VG

207 Gagnon, Georgette and Rath, Dan. NOT WITHOUT CAUSE: DAVID PETERSON'S FALL FROM GRACE.
Toronto HarperCollins 1991 0002158426 / 9780002158428 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
408 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w photographs. "The stunning defeat of David Peterson's powerful Liberal government on September 6, 1990 broke many of the old rules for Canadian elections - and provided the first glimpse of how future elections will be fought. At the center of the story: Liberal leader David Peterson. Young, handsome and rich, he embodied the glory years of the 1980s when Yuppies, BMWs and image politics ruled. His decision to 'go early', to call an election only three years into his mandate, set the wheels in motion. His campaign attracts some of Canada's leading political players: campaign chair Kathy Robinson, whose pivotal position becomes a hotseat as the Liberal slide begins; former Trudeau pollster Martin Goldfarb, anxious to keep a Liberal government in power; David MacNaughton, Goldfarb critic and rival; Bob Nixon, the tough and respected treasurer faced with scuttling his balanced budget in a last-ditch vote-buying attempt; aide Vince Borg, Peterson's long-time friend, who tries to protect the premier from protesters and Liberals alike. These key players and an army of policy experts, strategists, party members, candidates and reporters tangle and clash in the race for power. (The) gripping account of how the Peterson Liberals did not anticipate or prepare for the new trends emerging in Canada's electoral process: the increasing power of special-interest groups, campaign strategies that attack incumbents without offering alternatives, negative advertising, the critical importance of perceptions and the media, an electorate with declining party allegiances and the rise of non-traditional parties. It's also the reavealing tale of how Ontario's New Democratic and Progressive Conservative parties ran campaigns that became a perfect match for the volatile mood of voters." Remainder mark on bottom of text block at spine. Dust jacket has very minor wrinkling at top of spine.

"This book provides an informal history and tour of the Niagara Escarpment, the backbone of Ontario and one of Canada's natural wonders. Stretching from Tobermory at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula to Niagara Falls, the escarpment exhibits a wide diversity of landscape, people, and industry, in the present and in the past....Over 80 photographs....capture the various facets of the region. The rugged cliffs o f t h e B ruce Peninsula contrast with the pastoral lands beneath Mount Nemo; the neatly trimmed harbour at Tobermory counterpoints the Dundas swamp of Coote's Paradise.

The text provides entertaining glimpses of some of the pe o ple an d som e o f t he ev ents in the history of settlement and growth, proceeding from town to town, north to south.

Many of these incidents happened during the fierce storms of autumn, others were the result of horrific fires, groundings, collisions or sinkings. Sudden storms proved deadly for some ships, driving them onto shore where helpless onlookers watched or ca tching them in the open lake where they sank without a trace, taking the entire crew to their deaths. Each of the Great Lakes has its own history and particular reputation for danger to shipping. Each of them has shoal areas littered with w r e c k s a nd also holds undiscovered 'graveyards' in deeper waters where ships have gone down. Sport divers and history buffs have located some of these long-lost wrecks, while many remain elusive. A few of the Great Lakes ships noted in this b oo k le ft t h e inland seas to work in saltwater. During the war years many were pressed into service and successfully aided the war effort - some returned, while others became the victims of enemy action or casualties of the elements.

"(E)xplores the many factors which led to the establishment of the Medical Faculty, University of Toronto in which William Thomas Aikins played a leading role. Through the maelstrom of medical politics in the second half of the nineteenth century in Canada, W.T. Aikins emerges as the calm, steadfast leader who eventually triumphed over all obstacles and brought the University of Toronto Medical Faculty into being. To accomplish this, it was necessary to organize Ontario physicians, raise the competence and standing of medical practitioners and guide medical teaching through a crisis of faith, a revolution of physiology and a plethora of epistemologies of healing. His success set the stage for the initial wave of medical excellence in the province, which lead to the magnificent accomplishments of the first quarter of the twentieth century."
