17 BRAND, Dionne Land To Light On. Signed copy
McClelland & Stewart, Toronto, 1997, ISBN:077101645x 
BRAND, Dionne. Land To Light On. (Toronto) : McClelland & Stewart, (1997). Second Printing. Pp. (10),3-103,(1). 8vo, grey illustrated card covers. A collection of poems written by the Trinidadian author who now makes her homein Toronto. ""Land to Light On", Brand's first book of poems since her elo quent testimony to the possibilities of poetry, "No Language Is Neutral", opens onto the landscape of Canada. 'Out here I am. ... not even safe as thesea,' she writes. 'If I am peaceful ... .is not peace, / is getting used t o harm.' Brand writes about a place where she is an outsider - as any poet or painter must be - and also about the many outsiders who have come here and settled over the years, uncomfortable with the land and its people, uncomfortable sometimes with themselves. No one writes about this country like Brand, free of post-colonial cant yet selvedged with Black suffering in theAmericas. Speaking of memory but without a longing for the past, these poe ms hover between story and song; between groundings of life, wherever your landfall, and the grace of love and light. They ring with a poet's hesitations, a woman's praise and prayer for her people and their place. 'It alwaystakes long to come to what you have to say, you have to / sweep this stret ch of land up around your feet and point to the / signs, pleat whole histories with pins in your mouth and guess / at the fall of words.'." - from therear cover. Very good. Signed, without inscription, by Brand. 22.00

20 BROTZ, Howard. Black Jews of Harlem : Negro Nationalism and the Dilemmas of Negro Leadership. Signed copy

BROTZ, Howard M. The Black Jews of Harlem : Negro Nationalism and the Dilemmas of Negro Leadership. New York : Schocken Books, (1970). First Schocken Edition. Pp [i]-x,(2),1-144,+ 4 pp photos. Index. 8vo, illustrated reddish-brown card covers. In the Sourcebooks in Negro History series. “Dating fromthe heyday of Garveyism in the 1920's, Harlem's Congregation of Commandmen t Keepers, under the leadership of Rabbi Wentworth A. Matthew, represents an important stage of the black man's spiritual odyssey in the New World. Kept from all communion with his past through slavery and later stripped of the legal equality gained during Reconstruction, the American Negro has had to face the terrible task of creating ex nihilo his very identity. The sustaining myth of an Ethiopian-Hebrew origin , however inaccurate and set against a white Christianity, has sometimes put this small sect on the path toward “remoralization,” shared dignity, and a precious sense of self-reclamation. Dr. Brotz extrapolates from their achievement to a genuine and original analysis of the Negro's life style and place in a society defined by the white man. The political and historical material available here provide an indispensable introduction to what W.E.B. Dubois prophetically called the problem of the twentieth century, the problem of the color line.” - from theback cover. George Parkin Grant (1918-1988) was a Canadian philosopher, te acher and political commentator, whose popular appeal peaked in the late 1960s and 1970s. He is best known for his nationalism, political conservatism, comments on technology, pacifism, Christian faith, and conservative viewsregarding abortion and is credited as one of Canada's most original thinke rs. Grant was a faculty member at Dalhousie University, Halifax, N.S., twice (1947-1960, 1980-1988). Spine sunned, else very good. Signed with inscription from the author to George P. Grant. 30.00
