This 20th cetury form retains the pithy, expressive qualities of the traditional sonnet; but, freed from rhyme and lockstep metre, it takes on a loose and rangy vitality. Here are 12 jackpine sonnets by the manwho named the form: Milton Acorn, the Peoples' Poet. And 12 more by James Deahl, who learned the foprm from Acorn and brings his own voice to it. These 24 poems touch on love, politics, history: the spirit of nations, places, people and gods. They belong to a Canadian tradition which stretches backto Lampman and forward to a new generation of poets." -from the rear cover . Very good.

If a country as limitless as this can ever be said to have posed for its portrait, certainly the photographer behind the camera wasAnsel Adams. And now he has given us this book. Here, in his prodigiously illustrated autobiography, completed just prior to his death in 1984, is Adams' testament of a life of dedication, adventure, achievement, remarkable friendships, plainspoken wisdom, and a concern for man and nature. It is a memoir of times spent with Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O'Keeffe, Edward Weston, Nancy and Beaumont Newhall, Imogen Cunningham, Edwin Land, and so many more in the pantheon of the art and photography world. Here, not only in hisown words but also in photographs the world over (and many others never be fore pbulished), this extraordinary man steps forward to share with us his love of music, the beauty of the wilderness, loyalties and dreams, and thatclear-eyed vision that saw beyond the mountains the heart of America." - f rom the dustjacket.

Illustrated in black and white. 8vo, white cloth spine with white paper covered boards, silver lettering to spine. "'Why People Photograph' is a book by a professional photographer about the relationship of art and life. In 1981 Robert Adams published a volume of essay entitled 'Beauty in Photography', in which hesuggested that art is too important to confuse with interior decoration or an investment opportunity. Its real use, he contended, is to affirm meanin g and thus 'to keep intact an affection for life'. 'Why People Photograph' gathers a selection of Adams's writing since then. His subjects vary, but again he questions accepted prejudice, this time not only the view that art is trivial but that artists are separate. He demonstrates that many understand themselves to be bound to the world by complex and important obligations. Adams's writing is free of academic jargon. Readers will also appreciatehis attention to common experience (he talks about trying to earn an incom e), his employment of the unorthodox (one essay concerns dogs and photography), and above all his conviction that art matters." - from the dustjacket.Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 35.00

20 ADAMS, S.M. SOPHOCLES. Phoenix Supplementary Volumes, 3). Sophocles the Playwright. The Phoenix, Journal of the Classical Associationof Canada, Supplementary Volume III. Hardcover in dustjacket.
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1967, 
(SOPHOCLES). ADAMS, S.M. Sophocles the Playwright. The Phoenix, Journal of the Classical Association of Canada, Supplementary Volume III. (Toronto): University of Toronto Press, (1967). Third Printing. Pp. (4),v-viii,(2),[1]-182. 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "In Professor Adams' view, a Sophocles play is not the work of a writer feeling his way, with occasional flashes of genius, towards a later and more effective art-form, but one possessing complete dramatic unity. To contemporary Athenians nothing in these plays was undramatic; nothing was superfluous and nothing missing; the plays were artistic wholes. To recognize the basic unity of Sophocles' plays, one must fully realize the importance of religion in the drama of the time. Tragedy in ancient Greece was a form of religious observance, its subject matter drawn almost exclusively from legend. The controlling power of the gods, and their participation in the affairs of men, are the apparatus on which the dramatic unity depends. It is easy to lose sight of the religious aspect of the plays, for Sophocles, in particular, presents his human story so powerfully that a modern audience might easily see it as the only important aspect of the play. However, a Sophoclean drama is at once the fascinating presentation of a story, and a demonstration of the way in which mortals, with all their strength and greatness, are guided or supported by Olympian will and wisdom. The plays of Sophocles were constructed within theforms peculiar to their day, and should be judged accordingly." - from the dustjacket.
