324 pp, large 8vo (9" H). B&w photographs, reproductions, maps. "Leaside, the jewel of a planned residential and industrial town west of the Don Valley, owes its name to the Lea family and, in particular, to the octagonal house built by William Lea in the early 1850s.

Remember the wartime munitions plant at Leaside? - the site of the first airmail delivery? - the Olympic calibre ski jump by the Don Valley? Now part of Toronto and continuing to evolve, Leaside proudly retains its identity and its strong sense of community." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks.

DEAR M:  LETTERS FROM A GENTLEMAN OF EXCESS., Pollock, Jack.
83 Pollock, Jack. DEAR M: LETTERS FROM A GENTLEMAN OF EXCESS.
Toronto McClelland & Stewart 1989 0771070276 / 9780771070273 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good 
308 pp, 9 1/4" H. "Until 1983 Jack Pollock (please note - NOT Jackson Pollock the American artist) was the owner of The Pollock Gallery in Toronto, where he exhibited new Canadian artists. Then, abruptly, he lost both his business and his health. Twenty years of a flamboyant lifestyle had led to drug addiction, open-heart surgery, bankruptcy, and to a profound spiritual and psychological malaise. A broken man, he retreated to the south of France, expecting to die. He didn't die. Instead, he began to come to terms with himself and his life, in part by confiding his deepest feelings in a torrent of letters to M, a psychiatrist he had consulted briefly before his departure. These letters constitute an utterly honest assessment of his life, his work, his self-worth. They speak of his daily life in France, of his past accomplishments, about contemporary art in Canada, the act of painting, the contradictions of religion, and the power of sexuality. There are stories here of the art scene in Toronto in the fifties and sixties, when artists and their supporters from the Greenwich Village area fought to save their community from destruction. Stories, too, of the discovery of Norval Morrisseau, of encounters with David Hockney, Josef Albers, and a host of other acclaimed painters, of passionate arguments with the Art Gallery of Ontario, of battles in the sixties over the censorship of art. Pollock's forthright manner and his vivid style make (this) a powerful, captivating autobiography of unusual intimacy." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor soiling, very light rubbing.

JEAN I. GUNN: NURSING LEADER.  CANADIAN MEDICAL LIVES SERIES., Rieger, Natalie.
84 Rieger, Natalie. JEAN I. GUNN: NURSING LEADER. CANADIAN MEDICAL LIVES SERIES.
Asociated Medical Services / Fitzhenry & Whiteside, Markham, Ontario, 1997. 
264 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1550411756 B&w photographs. "In 1913 Jean Gunn, a native of Belleville who trained at the prestigious New York Presbyterian Hospital, became the Superintendant of Nurses at the Toronto General Hospital. For more than a quarter of a century she gave her energy and time to numerous nursing and health issues and the nursing service at the Toronto General. Recognized as a leader by nurses, doctors, politicians and hospital trustees, she manoeuvred around obstructions with humour, diplomacy, persistence and a fine sense of justice. Her contribution shows that the nursing profession achieved success despite the hierarchical, paternal and oppressive attitudes and behaviour of hospital trustees, medical doctors and politcians towards the nursing profession. Her story delineates the ambivalence which nurses had in working with other women on issues which were not related directly to nursing. It describes the respect with which Gunn was held by colleagues and her students at the General. Her achievements provide an alternative to the traditional interpretation of nursing's history as being oppressed and under patriarchal control, striving unsuccessfully to become a profession. What Gunn and her nurse colleagues accomplished in her life is relevant to today's problems in the health care system. We must know of those struggles before we lose the gains they fought for."

87 Santink, Joy L. TIMOTHY EATON AND THE RISE OF HIS DEPARTMENT STORE.
Toronto University of Toronto 1990 0802027202 / 9780802027207 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
319 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "In 1869, when Timothy Eaton opened his small dry goods store on Yonge Street in Toronto, the term 'department store' was unknown in North America and in Europe. By the 1890s the phrase had entered the language. In Canada, the biggest factor in that change was Eaton himself, an Irish immigrant with little formal education. Twenty years after it opened, his Toronto store was unquestionably the largest and most successful department store in Canada. (This is) a biography of Timothy Eaton which is at the same time a history of the first forty years of the Eaton store in Toronto and an account of the revolutionary changes in the way goods were sold during this period. There were enormous improvements in transportation, communication, and the mass production of goods. Urbanization grew at a tremendous rate; so did the population. This revolution imposed new demands on the retail industry, demands that many merchants at both the wholesale and retail levels chose to ignore. Timothy Eaton did not make that mistake. He used competitive and sometimes hostile markets as tools, rather than obstacles, in his search for sales." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at bottom of spine - minor elsewhere.

89 Sears, Val. HELLO SWEETHEART - GET ME REWRITE: REMEMBERING THE GREAT NEWSPAPER WARS.
Toronto Key Porter 1988 1550131125 / 9781550131123 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 
213 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w plates. "Exactly how the (Toronto) 'Telegram' came to feature Marilyn Bell's first-person, front-page account of her swim across Lake Ontario while she was under exclusive contract to the 'Toronto Star' continues to interest students of newspaper ethics to this day. But in the 1950s, as veteran newspaperman Val Sears recounts, shenanigans of this sort were commonplace. In their competition to build readership, newspapers resorted to extreme measures - even hiding crime victims - for the sake of an exclusive story. It was the age of the great newspaper wars and Val Sears was a frontline combatant. His rollicking account of the events that made the headlines, and the behind-the-scenes skirmishes among reporters battling for a scoop, is often hilarious, sometimes surprising, and occasionally tragic. Whether he is describing the bank-robbing Boyd Gang, whose repeated escapes from a Toronto prison inspired hysteria and ended in murder, the horrible devastation inflicted by Hurricane Hazel, or the miracle of the men who survived the collapse of the coal mine in Springhill, Nova Scotia, (he) demonstrates a marvellous wit and the skills of a gifted raconteur. Journalists in particular will be interested in Sears' view of how newspaper reporting has changed over the years: how stories were carefully 'built', or often stolen from other papers; how the role of the reporter has shifted, and how readers have also altered their expectations of their daily newspaper." Very minor edge wear at top/bottom of hinges. Dust jacket has very minor rubbing.

Toronto Natural Heritage / Dundurn 2005 1554884292 / 9781554884292 Second Edition Soft Cover Near Fine Signed by Authors.
92 pp, 8" H. B&w photographs, reproductions, maps. Signed by two of the authors - Adrienne Shadd and Karolyn Smardz Frost - on title page. "A richly illustrated book, (which) examines the urban connection of the clandestine system of secret routes, safe houses and 'conductors'. Not only does it trace the story of the Underground Railroad itself and how people courageously made the trip north to Canada and freedom, but it explores what happened to them after they arrived. And it does so using never-before-published information on the African-Canadian community of Toronto. Based entirely on new research carried out for the experiential theatre show 'The Underground Railroad: Next Stop, Freedom!' at the Royal Ontario Museum, this volume offers new insights into the rich heritage of the Black people who made Toronto their home before the Civil War. It portrays life in the city during the nineteenth century from the time of slavery, when some of Toronto's white citizens owned slaves, and looks at the world of mid-century Black Torontonians in considerable detail. This exciting new book will be of interest to readers young and old who want to learn more about this unexplored chapter in Toronto's history."

304 pp, small 4to (10 1/4" H). B&w photographs, reproductions. "(O)ne school stands above all others as the single most important contributor to developing hockey players for the NHL, and that is St. Michael's College (Toronto). Since initiating its hockey program, 184 alumni have gone on to play in the National Hockey League. St. Michael's has won a plethora of team awards. The Senior squad was OHA Senior Champion of 1909 and won the Allan Cup as national champions in 1910. The St. Michael's Majors won the Memorial Cup as the top Junior team in Canada in 1934, 1945, 1947 and 1961, were five-time Eastern Canadian champions and won the J. Ross Robertson Cup as OHA junior champs on six occasions. The Majors also won the Metro Junior Hockey League championship in 1962 and the Toronto St. Michael's Majors, having returned to Junior action after an extended hiatus, took the Emms Trophy as Central Division champions in 2002 and 2004. Meantime, the St. Michael's Buzzers have won the Sutherland cup six times as the best Junior 'B' team in Ontario and since moving to Provincial Junior 'A', have won the Frank L. Buckland Trophy as OPJHL champions in 2005 and 2006. Many outstanding hockey personalities have passed through the doors of St. Michael's College, but fourteen have earned induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame: Bobby Bauer, Gerry Cheevers, Dick Duff, Tim Horton, Red Kelly, Dave Keon, Ted Lindsay, Frank Mahovlich, Reg Noble, Joe Primeau and Frank Rankin in the Player category, and Father David Bauer, Murray Costello and Jim Gregory in the Builder category. And while the school has every reason to be proud of its extraordinary hockey legacy, the real reason to boast is that more than 6,000 students who made hockey part of their school experience left having learned the importance of leadership, discipline and staying true to strong values."
