41 Klinck, Carl F., general editor. Alfred G. Bailey, Claude Bissell, Roy Daniells, Northrop Frye, Desmond Pacey, editors. Victor G. Hopwood, Fred Cogswell, Munro Beattie, Gordon Roper, Elizabeth Waterston, Edith Fowke, Frank W. Watt, Michael Tait, et al. LITERARY HISTORY OF CANADA: CANADIAN LITERATURE IN ENGLISH.
Toronto University of Toronto Press 1973 0802051472 / 9780802051479 Reprinted with Corrections Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 
945 pp, 9 1/2" H. "This major effort of a large group of scholars working in the field of Canadian literature provides a comprehensive, up-to-date reference work on the English literary history of Canada. It will be invaluable as a source of information on authors, genres, and literary trends and influences. It is also a fascinating account, lively and well written, of the ways in which writers have over the centuries striven to record reactions to a powerful natural environment and to their society against the background of other literary traditions in English. This volume represents a positive attempt to give a history of Canada in terms of writings which deserve attention because of significant thought, form, and use of language; it also aims to contribute to criticism by offering reasons for singling out those works regarded as the best." Very minor edge wear to boards. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, slight fading to spine color, light rubbing on spine.

381 pp, 9 1/4" H. "(R)estores history to its status as a living art, encompassing the major epochs from the time of Judaism to the present, not as a chronicle of dates and events, but as major cycles in the tides of human destiny. (Lower's) aim is to fix western man's present position in the course of time and the flux of history, and further, to discern the probable future of humankind in the gradual unfolding of large-scale trends and movements. Ranging over the beginnings, developments and ends of cultures through the centuries, (he) comes to a view of the present as a revolutionary age, prelude to imminent chaos."

Ware Wordsworth 1988 1853269166 / 9781853269165 Reprint Hard Cover Very Good- Very Good- 
443 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). "The origins of words are always a fascination, and the origins of our own names can tell us a great deal of our family history. But the twists and turns of dialect and other influences often obscure the meanings, and a good eye and ear, and a wide knowledge of places, crafts, professions and languages, are needed to unravel many family names. A sense of humour helps, too, and here Mark Antony Lower takes his place in the tradition of observers of linguistic drift and foible such as Dr. Johnson, H.W. Fowler, Eric Partridge and Ernest Gowers. The book is full of fascinating anecdote and detail, and the introductory chapters cover American nomenclature, Scots, Irish and Welsh, and tables of statistical distribution. As for Mr. Lower's engaging style and unstuffy approach, one need only look at his entry for surnames beginning with the letter 'X', where he admits to following the example of a Northern naturalist 'who introduced into his work a chapter entitled 'Concerning Owls in Iceland', the chapter itself consisted of the words, 'There are no Owls in Iceland'. Mark Antony Lower's 'Dictionary of Surnames' is a book of endless delight, full of both scholarship and surprises." Light browning to pages, moderate browning to top and fore-edge of textblock, light edge wear, minor wrinkling at top of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling, two 3" creases at top of front panel.

Great not only in terms of numbers built and surviv ing, but in the affection generated by this amalgam of wood, wire and tube which has been responsible for training unknown thousands of airmen during more than half a century of uninterrupted operations. The Tiger Moth was born from the neces s i t y t o continue development of de Havilland's ubiquitous Moth family. Legends surrounding the development of the first DH82 have been embellished with the passage of time. In a Stag Lane shed, stagger and sweep were said to have ben determin ed b y pe n ci l calculations on the proverbial envelope while DH60G rear spars were shorteded with a handsaw. Following taxi trials, lower mainplane dihedral was added, adjusted to the length of the grass. The Tiger Moth has been privy to fifty yea rs of av ia tio n development. During her operational life she has seen wooden biplane airliners evolve into stainless steel projectiles carrying passengers faster than a rifle bullet. The Tiger Moth was conceived as a training aircraft, a ro le t o w hic h sh e w as a nd continues to be admirably suited, but as the photographs in this book illustrate, she has been adapted to almost every aviation situation possible to imagine. The aim (of this book) has been to present a balanced revie w of the life and time s of the Tiger Moth, from the early thirties to the present day, with a hint of the future added for good measure."

New York Praeger 1970 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
336 pp, 8 3/4" H. B&w maps. "The history of Canada is the story of an ever expanding frontier and of the attempt to create a new nation in the face of enormous physical and human obstacles. (The author) follows this development from the very first probings of the tiny bands of explorers, missionaries, and 'coureurs de bois' that opened up 'New France'. He examines the great military struggles for control of the continent in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, which played such a vital part in laying down the present political and racial divisions. (Later) Canadians faced the enormous problems of welding scattered communities into provinces and provinces into a self-governing federation. The political task of nation-building was itself closely bound up with the building of the railways and the exploitation of the country's vast resources. Professor McNaught analyzes these great economic and social changes, as well as the part Canada played in two world wars and the process by which the Dominion evolved a new role in international affairs and new relationships with both Britain and the United States. (Concludes) with a survey of postwar Canada, which emphasizes that the expansion of the human frontier and the problems of unity and nationhood remain part of the Canadian question."

208 pp, 11 1/8" H. Profusely illustrated with colour and b&w photographs, reproductions. "(C)oncentrates on Ontario's saw, grist, flour and woollen mills, beginning with some of the early mills built by government before the 1800s to supply the needs of Loyalist settlers who came to Upper Canada. Although these mills have long since disappeared, they have been depicted by contemporary artists and their portrayals have been reproduced. Enterprising pioneers and later immigrants and their descendants in the 19th century harnessed the magnificent water power of Ontario's rivers and creeks, and the mills they erected on their banks in various counties are featured (here) in text and pictures. Historian Larry Turner gives a general overview of milling in Ontario and the significance of the role the miller played in the life and growth of 19th century communities. He explains basic milling methods, the mill machinery and technological advances, changing economic conditions that influenced the operation of mills, and he discusses restoration of the remaining heritage structures as a practical approach to their preservation. (W)ritten for anyone interested in Ontario's past, for history buffs and genealogists, for it tells about the people who built and operated the mills and about their successes and failures."
