4 ABBOTT, Linda. Hull Home Fire. Paperback.
Flanker Press, St. John's, NF, 2013, ISBN:9781771172622 
ABBOTT, Linda. The Hull Home Fire. St. John's: Flanker Press, (2013). Pp. (6),1-231,(3). 8vo, illustrated orange card covers with white lettering to spine. "Day after day, thousands of people passed by an unassuming, three-storey building on the corner of New Gower and Springdale streets in St. John's. Operated by the Hull family, the ground floor was rented to a commission merchant; the top two floors and annex building were used as a private hospital for aged and infirm patients. In the dead of winter, on February 10,1948, the simple lighting of a defective oil stove in the main building se t off a chain of events that burned the Hull Home and its Annex to the ground. When the smoke cleared, searchers found death in every room and hallway. In this gripping historical novel, Linda Abbott vividly recreates St. John's of the 1940s, exploring the details of the inferno, as well as the human side, of a tragedy that could have been avoided." - from the rear cover.

University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1967, 
(SOPHOCLES). ADAMS, S.M. Sophocles the Playwright. The Phoenix, Journal of the Classical Association of Canada, Supplementary Volume III. (Toronto): University of Toronto Press, (1967). Third Printing. Pp. (4),v-viii,(2),[1]-182. 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "In Professor Adams' view, a Sophocles play is not the work of a writer feeling his way, with occasional flashes of genius, towards a later and more effective art-form, but one possessing complete dramatic unity. To contemporary Athenians nothing in these plays was undramatic; nothing was superfluous and nothing missing; the plays were artistic wholes. To recognize the basic unity of Sophocles' plays, one must fully realize the importance of religion in the drama of the time. Tragedy in ancient Greece was a form of religious observance, its subject matter drawn almost exclusively from legend. The controlling power of the gods, and their participation in the affairs of men, are the apparatus on which the dramatic unity depends. It is easy to lose sight of the religious aspect of the plays, for Sophocles, in particular, presents his human story so powerfully that a modern audience might easily see it as the only important aspect of the play. However, a Sophoclean drama is at once the fascinating presentation of a story, and a demonstration of the way in which mortals, with all their strength and greatness, are guided or supported by Olympian will and wisdom. The plays of Sophocles were constructed within theforms peculiar to their day, and should be judged accordingly." - from the dustjacket.

13 AGUIRRE, Robert W. International Straits of the World, Vol.15 Panama Canal.. Volume 15 in the International Straits of the World series. First Edition
Martinus Nijhoff, Leiden / Boston, 2010, ISBN:9004177280 
AGUIRRE, Robert W. The Panama Canal. Leiden / Boston : Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 2010. First Edition. Pp. (4),[v]-xii,(2),[1]-293,(5). Maps, tables, illustrations in text. 8vo, green paper-covered boards, light green lettering to front & spine. Volume 15 in the International Straits of the World series. "The relationship between straits and interoceanic canals has always been ambiguous. Unlike straits, interoceanic canals are neither natural nor subject to a universal legal regime like the Law of the Sea. However, straits and interoceanic canals share comparable historical experiences due to their geographic similarities. Suspending interest in a purely legal analysis, The Panama Canal lets logic yield to experience and considers the Panama Canal as an 'artificial strait'. The volume recasts the dynamic events that have changed the Panama Canal in the context of three interactive elements: environments, flows, and territoriality. Cleverly deciphering from history how changes in one element led to changes in another, The Panama Canal suggests a considerably new perspective for viewing the canal's past and future." - from rear cover.

Large 8vo, white cardcovers. "There is a healthy development in the human service professions these days. At community clinics, private practices, and universities around the country mental health professionals and service providers are working with increased awareness of the toxic effects of social inequities in the lives of people they aim to help. Quietly, by acting out their beliefs on justice and equality, clinicians are redressing the balance between professing our craftas clinicians and professing our humanity as citizens. Advancing Social Ju stice Through Clinical Practice is a comprehensive volume that bridges the gap between the psychosocial realities of clients and the dominant clinicalpractices. It offers an array of conceptual and practical innovations to a ddress both individual suffering and social inequities fueling this suffering. This is an empowering tool and a must read for mental health professionals. The accessible writing style also makes it ideal for teachers and students in the field. The book opens with a discussion of the historical, ethical, and experiential foundations for the development of social justice-based practice. Parts II and III present conceptual frameworks, strategies, and techniques used by social justice oriented practitioners. The final section discusses various ways to develop the skills and competencies required of mental health professionals aspiring to be both agents of individual and social transformation.

Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to brown panels to spine. In The History of Human Society series. "The epic story of American society, from pre-Colonial times to the end of the Civil War is unfolded here in a swift and sweeping synthesis. John Alden has sought primarily to put the multitudinous facets of the rich and varied past, so often separately studied by others, into a clear and just perspective. He begins with a notable chapter on the American Indians, and then goes on to the English, French, and other pioneers, emphasizing the educaitonal, religious and political heritageeach brought from Europe. He presents a swift and lucid picture of the Col onial Period, usually shown as an intricate morass of sectarian bickering. He puts the American Revolution, the writing of the constitution, and the opportune Louisiana Purchase into the panorama of world history. He shows how the aristocratic federalists were ousted by a second and more democratic revolution, the Jacksonian, and makes clear the powerful social forces at work. As the pioneers moved west, the very foundations of American society were altered. And the Civil War was a crucial social as well as political turning point" (from the dj).

Smith, Elder, & Co, London, 1853, 
ALLAN, Peter John. The Poetical Remains of Peter John Allan, Esq., Late of Fredericton, New Brunswick. With a Short Biographical Notice. Edited by theRev. Henry Christmas. London : Smith, Elder, & Co., MDCCCLIII [1853]. Firs t Edition. Pp (4),[v]-xxiv,[1]-171,(1). 8vo, maroon pressed cloth, gilt lettering to spine. TPL 5364. "Peter John Allan (June 6, 1825 – October 21, 1848) was a Canadian poet. Peter John Allan was born in York, England, the third son of Dr. Colin Allan and Jane Gibbon. Peter John Allan's father was Chief Medical Officer at Halifax before moving to Fredericton in 1836 upon his retirement. Growing up in Fredericton, Peter John briefly attended King's College but left before completing his degree. He then turned to the study of law. About the same time, he began to publish his compositions in the New Brunswick Reporter and Fredericton Advertiser, a local newspaper published by James Hogg. Allan began to plan the publication of a volume of poetry. He solicited enough subscriptions to underwrite the cost of publication and had completed the manuscript when he died suddenly in 1848 at Fredericton, following a brief illness. His poems were posthumously published in London in the summer of 1853 by his brother, and entitled The Poetical Remainsof Peter John Allan. Influenced by the aesthetic concepts of the Romantic poets and especially by the style and versification of Lord Byron, Allan was able in his most effective poetry to break away from the moralistic attitudes and sentimental tone that had prevailed in locally written verse sincethe end of the 18th century. Allan was excited by the potential of man's i magination, by the range of experience that imagination offered to human consciousness, and by the relationship between the natural world and ideal reality, which only the imagination opened to human awareness. In his best poems, Allan used this intense sensitivity to ideal reality to control the rush of emotion he felt when confronted with the sensual beauty of nature. This control gave an intellectual toughness to his verse that was missing in the verses of contemporary Maritime poets such as Joseph Howe and Mary JaneKatzmann, who approached nature poetry by way of sentimentalism. The new n ote struck by Allan's verse was probably noticed by few. It had an immediate if muted effect on James Hogg's poetry, but it was not until the early verses of Charles G.D. Roberts and Bliss Carman that once again intellectual perception and emotional sensitivity were to be found in so subtle a balance in the poetry of Maritime Canada." - from wikipedia.
