The recipes range from the simple, delicious dishes of traditional Hebridean fare to Miss Beckwith's own versions of universal favourites, with a few curiosities such as cormorant casserole. There is a recipe for every occasion, taste and budget, often with an entertaining account of Miss Beckwith's own introduction to the dish." - from the dustjacket.

The result is a style of cooking even more unique, one that combines thebest of old and new to delicious effect. In this definitive cookbook, long -time cook and homemaker Pauline Carter has gathered more than a thousand recipes, some tradition, some trendy, and some simply the best, from the recipe archives of family and friends across Nova Scotia. From appetizers, salads, and main dishes to desserts, confections, and preserves, there's plenty to satisfy every culinary need -- a section just for kids has recipes even the youngest cook in your kitchen can try. If you love good food, you will appreciate the recipes, both time-honoured and new, that 'The Great Nova Scotia Cookbook' dishes up with delectable style and wholesome simplicity."- from the rear cover.

Weed Flower Press, Toronto, 1972, 
COLOMBO, John Robert. Leonardo's Lists. Toronto: Weed Flower Press, 1972. First Printing. Pp. (6),7-20,(4). 8vo, illustrated stapled white card coverswith black lettering to front cover. "Throughout his long life, Leonardo d a Vinci filled volumnious notebooks with sketches and descriptions of real and imaginary objects. Thus the Florentine artist regularly 'took inventory' of the material and imaginary worlds around him. Sometimes he combined the two orders, as when he penned a recipe, a list of actual events in Milan in 1500, a register of the leaders of Florence, a memorandum of things to do that day, a catalogue of drawings on hand in his studio, an inventory of the vital functions of the body, an outline of the book he would never write.... John Robert Colombo, the Toronto poet and editor, recognized the poetic potential of these lists, which may be found in Edward MacCurdy's standard translation of 'The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci', and arranged them into a group of curiously evocative poems. They combine the two orders of cxreation, which Leonardo da Vinci took to be: 'Pre-imagining -- the imagining of things that are to be. Post-imagining -- the imagining of things that are past'." - from rear. Very good. Due to its small size, shipping costs should be cheaper than quoted. 15.00
