4 ALLEN, Charles KIPLING, Rudyard Kipling Sahib : India and the Making of Rudyard Kipling. First Edition in dustjacket, signed by author
Little, Brown, London, 2007, ISBN:9780316726559 
ALLEN, Charles. Kipling Sahib : India and the Making of Rudyard Kipling. (London) : Little, Brown, (2007). First British Edition. Pp (8),ix-xix,(3),1-426,+ 16 pp plates. Text illustrations. Maps. Index. 8vo, brown cloth, red lettering to spine, illustrated endpapers. "This is the story of the forgotten Kipling: 'Ruddy' the troubled youth eager to be accepted by Anglo-Indian society but too arrogant for his own good. A boy terrified of heat, darkness, and disease; a teenager who suffered a series of physical and mental breakdowns and turned to opiates for relief. A young man compelled to take dangerous 'night walks' into the native city of Lahore. This is Ruddy the breaker of taboos: who visited prostitutes; who wrote about love across the racial divide and wives who committed adultery in the hill-stations; who wrote sympathetically about the drunks and vagabonds of the British underclass. But when Kipling used his pen to attack figures in the highest tiers of the establishment, he became too scandalous for British India's comfort. At twenty-three, Ruddy left India to make a name for himself in literary London." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction: 'Seek not to question.' 1. 'Mother of cities': Bombay and a beginning, 1865-7. 2. 'Youth in the eye of thesun': Bombay and expulsion from Eden, 1867-71. 3. 'A double death': Souths ea and Lahore, 1871-7. 4.

5 ALLEN-GRAY, Dorothy. Fare Exchange : A collection of traditional recipes from many countries.
Kingswood House in association with Faber and Faber Limited, 1963, 
ALLEN-GRAY, Dorothy. Fare Exchange : A collection of traditional recipes from many countries. With line illustrations by Pamela Freeman. Photography by Don Swanson. N.pl.: Kingswood House in association with Faber and Faber Limited, (1963). Pp [1]-[776], colour frontis + 7 colour plates. Index. 8vo,blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “When Dorothy Allen-Gray began, years ago, to assemble this huge treasury of recipes of the world, she set her h eart against compiling an 'anthology of anthologies' and resolved to consult the older members of Canada's many ethnic groups, then to try out their recipes in their homes and her own. She is an utterly dedicated cook as wellas being a writer on kitchen topics and a determined traveller. In her rov ing around Canada she has sought out the older folk, welcoming the garrulous, long-memoried matriarchs from ancient villages and communities as fervently as she has encouraged those who can recall the culinary sophisticationsof the capital cities from which they are permanently exiled. The result i s a completely practical cook-book to last any housewife for a life-time. Tiring (incredibly) of the wide range of Central European dumplings or dainties, she has only to glance at the index and turn to Caucasian or Chinese counterparts, Yugoslav 'Kledanle', Canadian blueberry pie, Mexican flat cakes, Italian sauté fennel, with hundreds upon hundreds of well-remembered flavoury, savoury national specialities ranging from hay-makers' Held-snacks to highlights of wedding banquets, are here meticulously described, and all the many chapters are introduced by conclusions drawn over the years of collecting. While paying due respect to the elbow-grease necessary in old-timesmoky-raftered kitchens, the author smiles upon its mechanical replacement s. "I shall be happy," she writes, "if this book restores to the present generation part of the lore which is theirs by birthright." - from the dj. Dorothy Allen-Gray has been interested in recipes and cooking since her childhood in New Brunswick. ADDITIONAL SHIPPING CHARGES WILL BE REQUIRED DUE TO ITS WEIGHT. Very good in dustjacket. 50.00

6 ALSON, Sandra, (ed.) MacKENZIE, William Ord BLACKSTOCK, Cicely , (ed.) Another World : William Ord Mackenzie’s Sojourn in the Canadas, 1839 - 1843
2015, 
ALSON, Sandra and Cicely BLACKSTOCK, (eds.). ‘Another World’ : William Ord Mackenzie’s Sojourn in the Canadas, 1839 - 1843. Toronto : The Champlain Society, 2015. Pp (14),[xv]-lvi,(13),14-645,(9). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine, blind-stamped Champlain Society sealon front board. "William Ord Mackenzie, a recently graduated British army surgeon, describes for his friends and family back home his life in his first posting to ‘another world’: the Canadas, in the period just after the Rebellions. Opinionated, frank, sometimes arrogant and prejudiced, but alwayscurious, Mackenzie details for his readers the social and political affair s of the colonies over five years. He serves in the major cities ? Toronto,Kingston, Montreal and Quebec? and witnesses cultural events, social affai rs, sports, and theatrical performances. He is also posted to smaller garrisons ? Rivière-du-Loup, Chambly and the frontier post of Fort Ingall near the American border, and writes, sometimes despairingly, about their conditions. As a well-connected Scot, Mackenzie has entrée into the highest society of the colony, dining with lieutenant-governors, prominent businessmen, writers and politicians, but he also finds himself in the homes of ordinary Canadians in rural settings, enjoying the dances, weddings, sleighing and snowshoeing that helped to alleviate the boredom of service in a peacetime army. Politics, food, natural history, geography, the weather, local gossip and pretty girls all form part of his journals, as does a detailed account of his reading, in newspapers, journals and books. Illustrated with pen-and-ink drawings and detailed maps and sketches of cities and army posts, thislittle-known journal makes a remarkable contribution to our understanding of a young country ? Canada in embryo following a time of grave troubles. It explores a place slowly and painfully healing from the conflict and divisions brought by rebellion but preparing to take the first shaky and uncertain steps towards a truly united nation.

AMYOT, Chantal, Bianca GENDREAU, and John WILLIS. Special Delivery : Canada's Postal History. Edited by Francine Brousseau. Principal photography by Claire Dufour. [Preface by The Honourable André Ouellet]. (Fredericton, New Brunswick and Hull) : Goose Lane Editions, Canadian Museum of Civilization - Canadian Postal Museum, (2000). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xi,(1),13-150,(2). Illustrated in colour. Folio, black paper-covered boards with gilt lettering to front and spine.

"Sending and receiving mail lies at the heart of our lives and the history of our vast country. Dymbolized by the letter carrier, the letter, or the stamp, the post is part of our daily life. The postal system has taken part in Canada's great historical moments: in the fur trade, in the construction of the railway, on the abttlefield. It has evolved with the rhythm of explorers' journeys and the transformation of the land into the Canada we know today. The post office stands, literally and figuratively, right in the centre of our villages and cities, and it remains at the centre of our modern communications network.

To celebrate Canada's postal heritage, 'Special Delivery' showcases the jewels in the collection of the Canadian Postal Museum and tells the stories of our rarest and most beautiful stamps. Archival photos bring to life horse-drawn wagons and sleighs, early aircraft and snowmobiles, and remote post offices. Modern photos show the jets and trucks that move today's huge volume of mail.

Throughout the history of Canada's postal system, some things never change. It's the people - the clerks, the sorters, the drivers, the letter carriers, the postmasters - who make the mail go through. The responsibility of delvering the mail and the excitement of receiving it are the same today as they were in the days of sail." - from the dustjacket.
