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

October 21, 1996, Cleveland, Ohio). A biography of Mark Lemon (1809-1870), the firsteditor of Punch, published to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the found ing of the magazine in 1841. "A biography of Mark Lemon (1809-1870), the first Editor of Punch, has long been overdue, but Lemon has been fortunate inhis eventual biographer, Professor Arthur A. Adrian of the English Departm ent, Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, who has already shown hissympathetic understanding of the Victorian period in his life of Georgina Hogarth. Lemon is at last fully revealed as the man who was chiefly responsible for the survival of Punch in its early days, who edited the magazine for close on thirty years, and whose genial diplomacy and tact fused a miscellaneous band of writers and artists into the brotherhood of the Punch Table. Professor Adrian's researches have enabled him to present a fresh and absorbing picture of the early Punch collaborators; but he has done much morethan this. He has brought to light a representative Victorian of inexhaust ible energy and gusto, a prolific dramatist and author, an amateur actor famous for his Falstaff, the friend of Charles Dickens and Benjamin Webster, and not least a tireless philanthropist and public benefactor, whose own large family and generous temper kept him always impecunicous. It is a rich and readable study in Victoriana that Professor Adrian has given us to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the founding of Punch in 1841." (from the dj). Contents : Preface. 1.

ALLEN, Charlotte Vale. Painted Lives : A novel. Toronto: Random House, 1990. First Printing. Pp. (8),[1]-307,(5). 8vo, blue paper covered boards, giltlettered purple cloth spine. The Toronto-born author's twenty-sixth novel. "At its center is Mattie Sylvester. Fiery, headstrong, and outrageous, Mat tie is the elderly widow of one of America's foremost artists, Gideon Sylvester. Living now in a rabling house on an island off the Atlantic coast, Mattie spends hours each day gazing out to sea, recalling a turbulent past whose memory still makes her tremble with rage. Mattie's routine begins to change, however, with the arrival of the deceptively plain and restraited Sarah Kidd, whome Mattie has hired as a personal secretary. An unlikely bond forms between the two women as, night after night, Mattie takes Sarah into her confidence, narrating episodes from her unusual past -- her precocious childhood and early independence in New York, her circle of artist friends in the 1920s, her ruthlessly charming husband, their sons... and finally, Mattie reveals to Sarah the shocking truth about the famous Gideon Sylvester." - from the dust jacket.

The set would more properly havebeen titled "The Nation's Nineteenth-Century Pictures", as Turner is the e arliest of the 131 artists whose work is reproduced in these volumes. The Pre-Raphaelites, and those influenced by the PRB movement, have a representation in the volumes consistent with their continuing popularity at the timeof publication; and in quality of colour reproduction the plates are the e quals of those in some hastily dished-up modern books, and the better for the exactness of their colour registration.

Cover photo by Zoe Lucas.

"Sable Island is the world's most mysterious and notorious sandbar, situated 160 kilometres off the shore of southeast Nova Scotia. The island is currently receiving much attention because of its new designation as a National Park. Known for centuries as 'The Graveyard of the Atlantic,' its forty-kilometre length has claimed over five hundred ships since the earliest adventurers and fishing vessels sailed to North America. Even today Sable presents serious problems to navigators. The home of the world's last herds of wild horses, the island is a fragile, shifting crescent of sand and grass whose beauty and violence has fascinated and inspired countless adventurers, writers, artists and scientists for over three hundred years.

Bruce Armstrong takes the reader on a personal journey to Sable. He brings to life the early shipwrecks, lifesaving establishments and settlement attempts that have marked the island's long and varied hisory. There are ghost stories, tales of exceptional bravery and first-hand imp[ressions of the island left by men and women such as Sir Humphrey Gilbert, Dorothea Dix and Alexander Graham Bell. Contemporary material about Sable is based on interviews with some of the people who lived in this lonely place as lifesavers, wireless operators, conservationists and scientific observers; their experiences contribute an immediate sense of Sable's spirit and power.

'Sable Island' is an imaginative and exciting journey to the world's northern Galapagos. It is also an eloquent plea for the preservation of a unique and timeless part of Nova Scotia. 'Sable Island' was awarded the Evelyn Richardson Prize, the pre-eminent award for non-fiction in Atlantic Canada." - from the rear cover.
