"• The author presents in this book an up-to-date and stimulating account of the long and well-sustained farmer struggle for the most satisfactory co-operative method of marketing our wheat and other farm produce. Thiis is coupled with the story of securing appropriate legislation and amendments, designed to protect the producer from the abuses and practices more orless inherent in the warehousing, transporting and handling of grain. • Th e principle of co-operation is amongst the most important of the great forces which are striving for the shaping of our civilization to-day. As a principle it is opposed to the idea ot the "survival of the fittest." Even whenthe system which glorified competition was in its heydey, many men and wom en turned in self-protection to another way of living, and in the mid-nineteenth century laid the foundations of a social and economic order m which co-operation was to be dominant. Everybody who is interested in this aspect of the ever-widening co-operative movement, will find "New Breaking" stimulating reading. • The story of the organised rural activities dating back tosmall beginnings at the turn of the century, are here set forth in consecu tive order, and in a manner designed to be fair and just to all parties concerned. Mr. Boyd has written an interesting, informative and readable book.• An appreciative Foreword is contributed by the Hon. W. R. Motherwell. " - from the dj.

Illustrated [with 234 photographs. Square 8vo, tan cloth. "Two hundred and thirty-four striking photographs of the port of Boston combine with interpretive commentary to recapturethe flavor, buoyancy, and excitement of the city's years as one of the two or three great American ports. After the Civil War, Boston underwent a rad ical and successful transformation from a declining mercantile home port toan important and competitive modern seaport. At the same time, the transit ion from sail to steam was taking place. Mr Bunting uses photographic studies of deep water sail and steam vessels, naval ships, fishing boats, catboats, tugs, schooners, and sloops, and of the picturesque wharves - all create a kaleidoscopic visual history of these years of change. The volume offers, as well, some of the most distinguished early work in photography, including the widest selection ever published of photographs by pioneer marine photographer Nathaniel Stebbins. Mr. Bunting, a 1969 graduate of Harvard University, is at present a commercial fisherman." - from the dj.

12 CHAULK, Bob CUNARD, Samuel) Time in a Bottle : Historic Halifax Harbour From the Bottom Up.
Pottersfield Press, 2002, ISBN:1895900514 1895900514 / 9781895900514 
CHAULK, Bob. Time in a Bottle : Historic Halifax Harbour From the Bottom Up. Lawrencetown Beach, Nova Scotia, Canada : Pottersfield Press, (2002). First Edition. Pp (8),9-256. Illustrated with b&w photos in the text. 8vo, photo- and map- illustrated grey card covers.

"Hundreds of dives in the largest natural harbour in North America have given Bob Chaulk an extraordinary perspective on the history of the continent. On the waters of Halifax Harbour sailed the men who took the New World from its inhabitants and then fought among themselves for control, ultimately settling and building a community that they had to fight to keep. They all left their mark on the harbour floor. The Portuguese, the French, the British, the Americans, and the Canadians have all left their signatures in the artifacts that have accumulated in Halifax Harbour for over 300 years.

"The author skilfully unfolds the true story of the scuba divers who explore the hostile environment of the harbour throughout the year. Contending with strong currents, polluted waters, massive ships, and freezing water temperatures, this offbeat group spends their winter weekends diving beneath harbour ice, among warships and weaving among the pillars under the huge docks on the waterfront.

"Chaulk writes of their adventures diving in winter blizzards, checking out everything from live bombs and sunken ships to mundane items like medicine bottles that once contained cures for everything from baldness in people to diarrhea in chickens. He tells of the challenges of handling the complex equipment required for this extreme sport, anticipating overhead vessel movements, and the careful navigation needed to get back to shore in murky waters while avoiding entanglement in mountains of twisted cable, sunken railway tracks and old wrecks.

"Bob Chaulk is a Halifax writer with a passion for the ocean around Canada's Atlantic coast. He weaves together the historic tales of how bad weather, bad navigation and bad luck have resulted in the tragic losses of ships and people in and around the harbour. He tells of how the long-lost remnants of these sad incidents are being rediscovered and visited regularly by wreck divers, who photograph, research and document the events so that their stories may be preserved." - rear cover.
