Iron : Cast and Wrought Iron in Canada from the Seventeenth Century to the Present. First Edition in dustjacket, ARTHUR, Eric and Thomas RITCHIE
1 ARTHUR, Eric and Thomas RITCHIE Iron : Cast and Wrought Iron in Canada from the Seventeenth Century to the Present. First Edition in dustjacket
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1982, ISBN:0802024297 
ARTHUR, Eric and Thomas RITCHIE. Iron : Cast and Wrought Iron in Canada from the Seventeenth Century to the Present. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (1982). First Edition. Pp (6),[vii]- xiv,[1]-242. Double column. Illustrated. 4to, dark grey cloth, black lettering to front and spine. "This volume is a tribute to the ironmasters - men of persistence, determination, and inventiveness, who have been little recorded or recognized; to the craftsmen whose high standards of design and fabrication allowed beauty to touchwhat could have been mundane - kettles, pots, sugar tongs, and above all, the stoves for which Canada is famous; and finally, to the worker in wrought iron whose creations reached a pinnacle in the magnificent fence enclosing the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. With 250 black and white illustrations of everything from steamships to stoves, trains to trivets, and spits to spittoons, this book provides an introduction to iron: its preparation, forming, application, and decorative properties and uses. The focus is primarily Canadian. As Eric Arthur explains: 'To some degree, to study iron in Canada is to follow the gradual sophistication of Canadian culture. Ironworking began in Canada, as elsewhere, to a large extent to produce implements ofthe utmost utility, yet even in these the creative abilities of the ironwo rker are visible. As Canadian society developed, ironworking gradually began to fulfil more sophisticated desires. Finally, the age of industrialization was based on the ability of the iron- worker to produce rails and locomotives, ships and machines - in short all the things that made the growth ofCanada possible.' " - from the dj. Contents: 1. The technology of iron; 2. The development of the Canadian iron and steel industry; 3. The hammer and the anvil: wrought iron (and The Lozeau crosses); 4. The engineer and the ironmaster: cast and rolled iron; 5. Fences, railings, and palings, iron grilles and gratings, hinges and hardware, handrails and stairs, doors, gates, portals and other grand entrances (with photo essay of Frederick Flatman and The Parliament Buildings in Ottawa); 6. Pots and pans, trivets and tongs, cauldrons and kettles, spits and spittoons, irons and andirons, and muchelse; 7. Initiative, inventiveness, and daring in nineteenth-century archi tecture cast in iron (with a photo essay on the Hamilton Pump-House); 8. Stoves for all seasons: for heating and cooking -- ornate for the opulent, modest for the majority -- firebacks and fireplaces, mantels and other iron accoutrements; 9. Iron ships and iron horses: the pioneer developers. With notes, bibliography and index. Very good in dustjacket. 50.00

3 BARSS, Peter. Gordon, Joleen, craft notes. BARSS, Taiya. Older Ways : Traditional Nova Scotian Craftsmen. First Edition in dustjacket
Van Nostrand Reinhold, Toronto, 1980, ISBN:0442296282 1980 0442296282 / 9780442296285 
BARSS, Peter. Older Ways : Traditional Nova Scotian Craftsmen. Craft notes by Joleen Gordon. Toronto : Van Nostrand Reinhold, 1980. First Printing. Pp[1]-142,(2). Double column. B&w photos throughout. 4to, brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

"There was a time, not long ago, when the survival of the small, often isolated communites of Atlantic Canada depended solely on the resourcefulness of their people. Combining their skills, energy and ingenuity, they were able to produce the tools and equipment needed for their way of life. Fishermen knit their own nets but often went to other people toget them rigged. Farmers relied on the blacksmith to forge shoes for their oxen and horses. Women met to hook mats, sew quilts and warp their looms. The men and women who possessed the skills to make these essential items did not think of themselves as artists; their work evolved ouit of the necessities of everyday life.

Older Ways is a book that beautifully captures the work of a few of the remaining traditional Nova Scotian craftsmen. Thirty are presented through their own words and in striking, often moving, photographs by Peter Barss. They talk about their values, the love they have for their work and their regret at the passing of a way of life. Some, like Jane Hiltz, who makes braided hats, are teaching their craft to younger people; others, like cooper Ray Gates, believe their skills will die with them: 'Today there'd be no pint in a young feller to learn how to make barrels... there's no call for apple barrels...They tell me for shipping...they want square boxes.'

Craft notes, written by Joleen Gordon and illustrated with delightful line drawings by Taiya Barss, provide additional interesting information on the history of each craft and how the objects are made and used." - from the dust jacket.

"From the middle of the thirteenth century to 1517 A.D. Jerusalem was ruled by the Mamluk Sultans, whose domains stretched over most of the Levant and Egypt. Today, their architecture still characterises the Holy City, surrounding the exceptional presence of the earlier buildings of the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque, which are setapart within al-Haram al-Sharif. This book records for the first time the total magnificence of design and the skill of the craftsmen of that period.The studied elegance of these buildings still represents to many people th roughout the world the continuing presence of Islam in this, the Holy City of the Pprophet's Night Journey (Mi'raj) and the First Qibla, through fourteen centuries of Islamic history. This meticulous work, in which the architectural drawings have been prepared to precise standards, is the result of fifteen years of painstaking and definitive surveying by thehe British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem, enhanced by detailed socio-historical research of the Mamluk period, with particular regard to the Old City. This edition represents a corpus of standard reference on the subject for all time, in a format and style commensurate with the special position the city of Jerusalem holds in the three great monotheistic traditions."

Pp (6),7-160. Illustrated. 4to, maroon cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "The Maker's Hand is an inspiring resource book for engineers, architects, designers, weavers and other craftsmen, and indeed all those involved in assembling threadlike elements into functional structures. Peter Collingwood, for whom structure is a consuming interest, has selected over ninety objects from around the world, each of which he analyses in detail, revealing the inevitable beauty that can be achievedonly by a marriage between appropriate materials and ideal structure. In m any cases the structures have been evolved and perfected over centuries. All the objects, which range from Indian camel girths to the springs of a US army Jeep seat, from Japanese triaxial silk to Botswanan beer strainers, and from Omani sandsocks to a Tuareg hat, have been specially photographed byDavid Cripps to complement the author's analytical diagrams. Together they provide a book of outstanding visual appeal. Few people have the knowledge and experience to understand and analyze so wide a range of structures, bu t Peter Collingwood does so triumphantly, offering a unique insight into the balance of material and structure that should be the basis of all design"(from the dj). , Contents : One Single Element : Linking; Interlacing; Sim ple Looping; Interconnected Looping; Interlooping.
