University of Toronto Press, Toronto / Buffalo / London, 2012, ISBN:9781442611092 
BANNISTER, Jerry, and Liam RIORDAN (eds.). The Loyal Atlantic : Remaking the British Atlantic in the Revolutioary Era. Toronto / Buffalo / London : University of Toronto Press, (2012). First Paperback Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-xxi,(5),[3]-318,(2). Maps. Index. 8vo, art-illustrated card covers, lettered in black and white. ""Adding to a dynamic new wave of scholarship in Atlantic history, The Loyal Atlantic offers fresh interpretations of the key roleplayed by Loyalism in shaping the early modern British Empire. This cohesi ve collection investigates how Loyalism and the empire were mutually constituted and reconstituted from the eighteenth century onward. Featuring contributions by authors from across Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom, The Loyal Atlantic brings Loyalism into a genuinely international focus. Through cutting-edge archival research, The Loyal Atlantic contextualizes Loyalism within the larger history of the British Empire. It also details how, far from being a passive allegiance, Loyalism changed in unexpected and fascinating ways - especially in times of crisis. Most importantly, The Loyal Atlantic demonstrates that neither the conquest of Canada nor the American Revolution can be properly understood without assessing the meanings of Loyalism in the wider Atlantic world." (Abstract). Contents : 1. Loyalism and the British Atlantic, 1660-1840 (by Jerry Bannister and Liam Riordan). Part I. Interpretive Frameworks of Allegiance within Imperial Transition. 2.

19 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. George H. Junne, Jr, The History of Blacks in Canada : A Selectively AnnotatedBibliography 1338. A collection of poems written by the Trinidadian author who now makes her home in Toronto. ""Land to Light On", Brand's first book of poems since her eloquent testimony to the possibilities of poetry, "No Language Is Neutral", opens onto the landscape of Canada. 'Out here I am. ... not even safe as the sea,' she writes. 'If I am peaceful ... .is not peace, / is getting used to 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 withBlack suffering in the Americas. Speaking of memory but without a longing for the past, these poems hover between story and song; between groundings of life, wherever your landfall, and the grace of love and light. They ringwith a poet's hesitations, a woman's praise and prayer for her people and their place. 'It always takes long to come to what you have to say, you have to / sweep this stretch 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 the rear cover. Very good. Signed, without inscription,by Brand. 22.00
