"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.

ANDERSON, Doris. Rebel Daughter : An Autobiography. (Toronto) : Key Porter,(1996). First Printing. Pp 288 + plates. 8vo, black cloth. Doris Hilda And erson, (b. November 10, 1921 in Calgary - d. March 2, 2007, Toronto) . "As the editor of Chatelaine magazine from 1957 to 1977, Doris Anderson blazed a trail for Canadian women. Long before Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique was published, Anderson's editorials on abortion, women in the work force, child care, divorce settlements, custody arrangements, pay equity, and female sexual fulfilment challenged the prevailing social order and laid thefoundation for the feminist movement in Canada. [...] This fascinating and insightful autobiography describes that sometimes turbulent childhood in D epression-era Alberta and Anderson's years as a teacher in one-room schoolhouses. It follows her efforts to establish herself as a professional journalist in Toronto in the late 1940s, and records the frustrations and triumphs of an immensely capable woman coming up against a male-dominated journalistic establishment. [...] Finally, Rebel Daughter documents Anderson's timeas head of the Canadian Advisory Council on the Status of Women, when she led the fight that resulted in one simple statement being enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms : men and women are equal under thelaw." - from the dj.

Annual Register or a View of the History, Politicks Politics and Literaturefor the Years  : 1758 to 1808, Annual Register BURKE, Edmund
9 Annual Register BURKE, Edmund Annual Register or a View of the History, Politicks Politics and Literaturefor the Years : 1758 to 1808
Dodsley and others, London, 1758, 
Annual Register . Annual Register or a View of the History, Politicks / Politics and Literature for the Year. London
The Annual Register (originally subtitled "A View of the History, Politicks and Literature of the Year ... ") is a long-established reference work, written and published each year, which records and analyses the year’s major events, developments and trends throughout the world.
It was first written in 1758 under the editorship of Edmund Burke. This collection contains much on the wars and revolutions of the eighteenth century, as well as chronicling development in most spheres of endeavour.
"The Annual Register was created in 1758 by the publishers James and Robert Dodsley. On 24 April 1758 the Dodsley brothers signed a contract with Edmund Burke (1729–97) to write and edit the material for The Annual Register, which was conceived as an annual publication which would review the history, politics and literature of the day.
Born in Ireland, Burke had trained as a lawyer before abandoning this field and turning to writing. He was an up-and-coming member of the intelligentsia and had already written several notable works, published by Dodsley. According to his contract with Dodsley, Burke was paid £100 per annum as editor of The Annual Register. In its original form, The Annual Register comprised a long historical essay on the “History of the Present War” (the Seven Years' War 1756–63), a Chronology, which gave an account of interesting and noteworthy events in Britain over the previous year, and a collection of “State Papers”, a miscellany of primary source material which included official documents, speeches,letters and accounts. In his preface to the 1758 volume Burke noted the difficulties he had faced in writing the history section of the book. Taking the “broken and unconnected materials” and creating from them “one connected narrative” had been, he commented, “a work of more labour than may at first appear”. Nevertheless, his perseverance and skill as an historian meant that by the time of its publication the first volume of The Annual Register contained a unique, contemporaneous account of the war, analysing its origins and development with a perspective not readily available at the time in newspapers or magazines. As a result the book sold widely, with the first volume going through five editions in its first 10 years. Given the conventions of the day, within which journalism was seen as a disreputable profession for a gentleman, Burke was publicly reticent about his connection with The Annual Register. However, his biographers are in agreement that Burke wrote and edited the book single-handedly until 1765 when he entered Parliament. From this time Thomas English was closely involved in writing the book and is regarded by some authorities as having taken over the editorship from Burke in that year. Scholars are divided on the question of Burke’s association with the book thereafter, although many suggest that he continued to contribute to the history section and that he played a significant role in overseeing The Annual Register’s compilation until the 1790s, even though much of the editorial work by this stage was being done by others."

See William B. Todd's A Bibliography of Edmund Burke, (2nd ed., 1982) pp.45-68, for Burke’s involvement with the Annual Register.

June 9, 1964, Cherkley Court, M ickleham, Surrey) grew up in Newcastle, New Brunswick. "Lord Beaverbrook's own story covers his earliest memories on the Miramichi through the seven golden years of his financial career to his move to England and entry into British politics in 1910. 'In the space of fifty years,' he writes, 'my activities cover three successive adventures in the most vital spheres of modern affairs -- Business, Politics and Journalism. I left finance just as I had scored a preliminary success pointing apparently the way to vaster triumphs in a continent where at that time the business man was king. I left the politics of the House of Commons at the same psychological moment. I turnedaway, as in a mere mood of petulance, and flung myself once again into a n ew sphere of journalistic activity, of which I was wholly ignorant. Was I really quite sane?' In the pages which follow, the image of the writer emerges clear and unmistakable. Early in the story we read his belief which stamped his thinking through life, that man, however small his beginning and however poor his opportunities, is master of his fate. That belief, he says, is at the root of the greatness of Anglo-American civilization. Certainly it was the epitome of his own philosophy. The early part of the book has much advice to offer the young in how to succeed in life. 'Men ask: How did the fellow do it? In reading his record, can I pick up some hints which may be useful to myself?' The second part describes how he put his precepts to the trial and succeeded in the most spectacular success story of the century. The New Brunswick boy became a multi-millionaire before he was thirty, and in doing so created a series of industrial complexes which stand today, half a century later, as monuments to his genius, with such names as Canada Cement, Steel Company of Canada, Calgary Power and a host of others." - from the dustjacket.
