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.

Although Rontgen was a r emarkable man, he likely did not foresee just how far his discovery would lead the next century. Despite its small population, Canada has played a full part in the early uses of radiation: the discovery of alpha particles, cobalt-60 treatment for cancer, Alexander Graham Bell's experiments, and one of the very first uses of a raadiograph in helping a surgeon to operate successfully, for example. [...] With more than 60 contributors and over 100 chapters, A New Kind of Ray brings together in one volume the story of Canadian achievements over the past 100 years in the fields of radiology, radiation oncology, nuclear medicine and radiation protection."

ALEXANDER, David G. Atlantic Canada and Confederation : Essays in Canadian Political Economy. Compiled by Eric W. Sager, Lewis R. Fischer, and Stuart O. Pierson. Toronto : "Published in association with Memorial University of Newfoundland by University of Toronto Press", 1983. First Edition. Pp (5), v-xviii, (2), [3]-157, (1) including portrait frontispiece. With a few maps, tables & graphs in the text. 8vo (155 x 236 mm), blue cloth, with black map design and lettering to front, with black lettering to spine.

David George Alexander (b. April 1, 1939, Nanaimo, British Columbia -d. July 25, 1980).
See ENL I:37-8.

"The nine essays in this posthumous volume are linked by a recurring theme - an affirmation of the integrity and viability of the small society and culture in the economic blocs and political federations of the modern world.

Alexander maintained that there was an economic base for the provinces of Atlantic Canada in the resources of the region and the genius of its people. In these essays he launched an assault on the beliefs that hindered the develpment of that base while searching for policies necessary to sustain that society. He indicated Canadian trade policies. He stated that neither the date nor the fact of entry into Confederation offered an economic panacea for any of the Atlantic provinces - but that the question of political and economic accmmodation within the larger federation was critical.

Alexander's study of the rise and decline of the shipping industry in Atlantic Canada in the nineteenth century revealed a regional industry with resources, capital and entrepreneurial talent to compete successfully in international trade. It also reinforced his belief that subsequent regional disadvantages grew as much from institutional and political factors as from the unimpeded operation of comparative advantage and market forces.

The volume pleads for a stronger federalism based on the belief that the survival of the Canadian Confederation depends upon the rebirth of pride and self-respect among Canada's diverse peoples. These essays are part of that heritage and that rebirth." - the rear of the paperback edition.
