Dundurn Press, Toronto, 1995. 
118 pp, large 8vo (9 7/18" H), soft cover. ISBN 1550022040 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, plans, elevations. "From 1876 to 1915, Edward James Lennox was a formidable force in Toronto's architectural community. Many of his buildings are still landmarks in a city that continues to evolve. Born and educated in Toronto, Lennox looked to the past for inspiration but was never captured by it. His prototypical Annex house on Madison Avenue, Old City Hall, and Casa Loma bear witness to his technical expertise and aesthetic sensibilities. Through text and illustrations, this volume tells the story of a resolute architect whose vision helped shape an emerging city, and who in his time was called the 'builder of Toronto'." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor wrinkle at bottom edge of front cover, very minor rubbing, slight waviness at top of textblock. Very Good+

EARLIEST TORONTO., MacIntosh, Robert M.
65 MacIntosh, Robert M. EARLIEST TORONTO.
Renfrew, Ontario General Store Publishing 2007 1897113412 / 9781897113417 2nd Printing Soft Cover Near Fine 
107 pp, 8 1/2" H. B&w and colour illustrations, maps. "Beginning with the dramatic conflicts in the aboriginal communities around Lake Ontario before the coming of the Europeans in the early seventeenth century, followed by two centuries of French exploration and settlement, the city's early history will surprise many Torontonians. Simcoe, the founder of the Village of York in 1793, is often presented as a great administrator and military leader. In fact he was a poor manager with no attachment to Canada, and a vigorous advocate of English snobbery and class distinction. His chief concern was to gain preferment in London and to transplant the values of the British class system to the forest frontier. (This book) makes a plausible case that the real founder of Toronto was William Berczy, a remarkably cultured and determined man who led an expedition of German immigrants to Markham in 1794, and who contributed significantly to the early development of the new settlement. Later chapters focus on the people and events that shaped the early years of a struggling frontier community. One of the stories is about the sinking of the Speedy on Lake Ontario, and how it led to the building of The Grange, today one of Toronto's oldest extant buildings and the birthplace of the Art Gallery of Ontario." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - a few pages with a tiny wrinkle at bottom edge.

A CHECKLIST OF TORONTO CABINET AND CHAIR MAKERS, 1800-1865., Mackinnon, Joan.
66 Mackinnon, Joan. A CHECKLIST OF TORONTO CABINET AND CHAIR MAKERS, 1800-1865.
Nationa Museums of Canada, Ottawa, 1975. 
199 pp, small 4to (10 15/16" H), soft cover. National Museum of Man Mercury Series, History Division Paper No. 11. B&w illustrations. "This check-list, containing approximately 500 names, attempts to include not only all the autonomous cabinet and chairmakers who began their operations in Toronto before 1865, but also all those who were employed by the larger manufacturers and who may have done nothing more than turn out component parts. (It) gives only the barest details for most of the entries: name, occupation (the way in which the man was identified at the time), working dates to 1890, and dates and places of residence and/or business to 1865. Additional information, including biographical data, types of furniture made, number and names of employees, outside activities, etc., is included where available. The working dates given are the earliest and latest dates for which there is actual proof that the cabinetmaker or chairmaker was working in Toronto. This is so even in cases where there may be reason to believe that the craftsman was active prior to or after the dates noted. Where a cabinetmaker is known to have changed his profession, his later occupation is mentioned, but the final date is always for work as a cabinet or chairmaker. In most instances birth dates are correct only to within a year, as they usually had to be calculated by subtracting the man's stated age from the year of the census or tax assessment roll in which it was given." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very light foxing to top of textblock, very light rubbing/soiling, light soiling to spine, very minor edge wear. VG

157 pp, oblong 8vo (9" H x 11 1/4" D). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, maps, reproductions. "(Collects) in pictorial and narrative form many of Toronto's unique early buildings, their architect-builders and the personages who significantly influenced their development. The genre of building illustrated evolves from the early Custom and Registry Offices, through the turn of the century public buildings, to the Hotels and Theatres of the 1930s. Being captured in this volume are many of the long extinct and most of the virtually unpublished faces of Toronto, including the rare appearance of sections from 'Goad's 1884 Atlas of Toronto'. This remarkable contribution to the history of York and Toronto remains invaluable to the bibliophile and historian alike. This volume reproduces numerous early drawings, watercolours, engravings and photographs. It has been indexed and cross referenced; contains a list of plates, list of artists, list of architect-builders et al."

CITY TO CITY., Morris, Jan.
72 Morris, Jan. CITY TO CITY.
Toronto Macfarlane Walter & Ross 1990 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Barry Blitt. 
173 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w illustrations. "During her regular visits to Canada over the past thirty-five years, (Morris) has watched its evolution with a mixture of empathy, fascination, and frustration. She finds the preoccupation with national identity baffling, since she herself has no trouble in differentiating Canada from every other country in the world. Nowhere in Canada, she says, could she ever imagine herself to be in the United States. The pursuit of happiness nowadays, she believes, can be better pursued north of the border. Indeed, she described the Canadian society as 'on the whole, the most admirable on earth', and writes that she is 'not ashamed to say that I have grown to love the country'. Not that 'City to City' is all sweetness and praise. Her assessments of the ten places she writes about - St John's, Newfoundland; St Andrews, New Brunswick; Montreal; Ottawa; Toronto; Saskatoon; Edmonton; Banff; Vancouver; and Yellowknife - are never predictable. In fact, her reaction is sometimes the opposite of what Canadians might expect. Some of the cities that Canadians consider 'world class' fall, in her view, well short of the mark. In smaller places, which many urban Canadians dismiss as provincial and uninteresting, she discovers great value and appeal. Canadians may not be flattered by everything Jan Morris has to say about their country, but no reader will fail to be stimulated, informed and entertained. Deeply personal and yet brilliantly researched, highly readable and yet profoundly resonant, (it) is an astute portrayal of a country poised on the brink between true nationhood and disintegration." Light browning to fore-edge and top of text block, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, small bump at bottom edge of front board. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has very light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine, minor rubbing.

In arranging for promotion, an officer who writes plainly and legibly will be given the preference, other claims being equal, while a marked deficiency in this respect will prove a serious barrier to advancement."

208 pp, 11 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w and colour photographs, reproductions. "(T)akes a fascinating look at the personalities and events that have made the Gardens Canada's most famous building. It is the interesting story of the building of the Gardens and of the hockey greats who have played there. It is also, in many ways, the story of popular entertainment in Canada from 1931 to 1981. Over 100 million people have been entertained by ballet, opera, circuses, skating extravaganzas and concerts of all sorts, in addition to almost every kind of sporting event from boxing and wrestling to bicycle racing. The arena has also been the site of political and religious rallies, benefits in support of the war effort, community events such as Brownie and Boy Scout pageants, and service club fund-raisers. This nostalgic book will remind sports fans of the Leafs' high-scoring Kid Line, of George Chuvalo going the distance with Muhammad Ali or of Vitas Gerulaitas defeating Bjorn Borg. Rock fans will remember attending an Elvis Presley concert, or waiting hours in line for Beatles' tickets. (It) also contains a detailed chronology of the milestones in the history of the Gardens for the trivia buff." Minor edge wear, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine.
