Boston Mills Press, (Erin, Ontario, 1989), Ist edition. 
248 pp, 8vo, HC in dust jacket. B&w photos, map endpapers. "The majority of Ontario people have grown up without any knowledge of two very important phases of rural education. The one-room, rural public schools served well for more than a century . Continutation schools were a boon to rural life for more than 50 years. Since little has been written about either, I feel an urge to describe my experiences with both. For many residents of Southern Ontario, the northern districts o f t h e p r o v i nce seem a world apart. Distances and isolation there render impossible some of the advantages of centralization of education in southern Ontario. I wish to emphasize some of the problems of education in the north...If I try to c o ve r, i n s im pl e fo rm, a period of 50 years in education, I must do so as I have seen it evolve. Thus, the result is an autobiography." Dust jacket has light edgwear/wrinkling. NF/VG+

THE END OF ORDER: VERSAILLES 1919., Mee, Charles L., Jr.
90 Mee, Charles L., Jr. THE END OF ORDER: VERSAILLES 1919.
New York E.P. Dutton 1980 0525098100 / 9780525098102 First Edition Very Good Very Good- 
301 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). "The first world war and the Versailles Treaty that followed produced the most serious upheaval in the long and stormy course of modern world history. Four great empires - Germany, Austria-Hungary, Turkey, and Russia - were part of the war's rubble. Far from restoring the world to order, the diplomats who met in 1919 at Paris and at Versailles plunged the world again, this time irretrievably, into the chaos of the twentieth century. It was the end of order. At three o'clock on the afternoon of May 7, 1919, the head of the German delegation to the Paris Peace Conference entered a room in the Trianon Palace of Versailles and was 'dazzled and disoriented by the sudden explosion of sunlight reflected in the vast mirrors, the chandeliers and white walls'. Brockdorff-Rantzau was further bewildered by the Treaty that was presented to him - 'a mass of cross references and changed paragraphs' covering 200 printed pages and 140 articles. Yet nobody had studied the document - not the barrel-chested, shrewd, ferocious Clemenceau, commonly called 'The Tiger'; not the mercurial and crafty Lloyd George; and not Woodrow Wilson, the orator who looked like a Presbyterian minister and had been hailed as the Savior of Europe. What happened when the three most powerful heads of state gathered to establish a new world order is the subject of this important book. By turns appalling and hilarious, but informed throughout by a tragic sense of irony, this book is at once a work of art and a relentless disclosure of human beings caught in the process of making their own history." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, soft crease down spine, faint tiny foxing marks on edge of text block - mainly top edge, small light soiling mark in bottom margin of page 101. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very small light stain under laminate of front flap - text is legible, light foxing on inside top edge - mainly on front panel, minor edge wear, minor rubbing.

Miller provides a lucid account of the world as it is seen through the poet's eyes and a rare look at the writing and publishing community as both struggled for survival in Carman's time."

326 pp, 9 1/4" H. Map endpapers, b&w photographs. "(B)egins with a thorough re-evaluation of the RCN's role in the decisive Allied Atlantic victory over the U-boats in 1943. It presents some startling new conclusions about why the Canadians were marginalized in this the greatest of all anti-submarine offensives. Most studies of the Atlantic war end at this point, but 1943 is just the prologue to Milner's new book. Historians have ignored anti-submarine warfare in1944-5 because it was highly technical, undramatic and of no consequence to the outcome of the war itself. But the war against the U-boat was unrelenting. Schnorkels, improved batteries, radar detectors, and complex inshore water conditions made it difficult to find and sink late-war U-boats. By 1944 the Germans were building new, high-speed true submarines, against which the Allies had not effective countermeasures. This book is the story of how the RCN tackled these elusive enemies, how it fought to master the basics of modern anti-submarine warfare, and how its efforts fit into the larger Allied campaign."

"Kensington Palace, for years a forgotten semi-derelict royal residence described by Edward VII as an 'aunt heap', is today the decorous London home of some of the most famous members of the royal family. Among its inmates are the charismatic royal headline makers, the Prince and Princess of Wales; the stylish and ambitious Princess Michael of Kent; the more sombre and sober Duke and Duchess o f G l o u c e ster; and Princess Margaret, once, like her younger female relatives, considered fair game by the world's press but now largely ignored by the media and enjoying a quiet and very comfortable life. (This book) takes the general public - no rm al ly o nl y allowed access to the State Apartments - on a tour of discovery into the private residences of four royal households, revealing the intimate and formerly secret details of their day-to-day lives. We learn of an old teddy bea r t h at eve ry nig ht is tucked up into the bed of England's next monarch; of the Princess who likes to ride in her chauffeur-driven car with the interior lights on so she can be clearly seen by the 'peasants' in the street; and of the teetotal Duk e wh o ins ured hi s we ddi ng anniversary celebrations against a cancellation by Britain's possible defeat in the Falklands War. (It) is about royalty behind closed doors. (The author) lets us see how the royals behave when they think the world isn't l ooki ng. He p ortra ys t hes e royal super-stars as human beings who have the same sort of loves and hates, jealousies and fears as the rest of us."
