ABEYASEKERE, Susan. Jakarta : A History. Singapore [et al] : Oxford University Press, 1987. Pp (4),[v]-xvii,(3),[3]-280,(2),+ 16 pp plates. Maps. Index. 8vo, illustrated grey paper-covered boards (hardcover), lettered in blue, orange, pale yellow, white and black.

"This study of Jakarta presents the first general history of the city. It follows two main themes. One is the clash between dream and reality. For nearly 400 years, governments have wanted Jakarta to be the show-piece for their policies in the Indonesian archipelago. From 1619 until 1949, the Dutch saw the city as a European enclave displaying the gifts of good government and modern technology which they brought to their East Indies. After independence, President Sukarno lavished attention on his capital, hoping to make it the pride of the nation and the Beacon of the New Emerging Forces. Since Sukarno's fall, the New Order Government has channelled investment into Jakarta and carried through extensive modernization plans in line with its general aim of economic development for Indonesia. This book looks at the consequences of those centuries of policies for Jakarta, and in particular for the vast majority of its inhabitants who have always been too poor to fit into plans for the city.

The other main theme is the rich complexity of Jakarta's population. For centuries the city grew relatively slowly, and immigrant groups of Chinese, Arabs, Europeans and Indonesians from all over the archipelago mingled to produce unique cultural forms. In the last 40 years, that intricate web has been torn apart by political changes and massive waves of Indonesian immigrants who are still struggling to create their own urban culture in a predominantly rural country." (from the back cover).

16 ALSON, Sandra, (ed.) MacKENZIE, William Ord BLACKSTOCK, Cicely , (ed.) Another World : William Ord Mackenzie’s Sojourn in the Canadas, 1839 - 1843

ALSON, Sandra and Cicely BLACKSTOCK, (eds.). ‘Another World’ : William Ord Mackenzie’s Sojourn in the Canadas, 1839 - 1843. Toronto : The Champlain Society, 2015. Pp (14),[xv]-lvi,(13),14-645,(9). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine, blind-stamped Champlain Society sealon front board. "William Ord Mackenzie, a recently graduated British army surgeon, describes for his friends and family back home his life in his first posting to ‘another world’: the Canadas, in the period just after the Rebellions. Opinionated, frank, sometimes arrogant and prejudiced, but alwayscurious, Mackenzie details for his readers the social and political affair s of the colonies over five years. He serves in the major cities ? Toronto,Kingston, Montreal and Quebec? and witnesses cultural events, social affai rs, sports, and theatrical performances. He is also posted to smaller garrisons ? Rivière-du-Loup, Chambly and the frontier post of Fort Ingall near the American border, and writes, sometimes despairingly, about their conditions. As a well-connected Scot, Mackenzie has entrée into the highest society of the colony, dining with lieutenant-governors, prominent businessmen, writers and politicians, but he also finds himself in the homes of ordinary Canadians in rural settings, enjoying the dances, weddings, sleighing and snowshoeing that helped to alleviate the boredom of service in a peacetime army. Politics, food, natural history, geography, the weather, local gossip and pretty girls all form part of his journals, as does a detailed account of his reading, in newspapers, journals and books. Illustrated with pen-and-ink drawings and detailed maps and sketches of cities and army posts, thislittle-known journal makes a remarkable contribution to our understanding of a young country ? Canada in embryo following a time of grave troubles. It explores a place slowly and painfully healing from the conflict and divisions brought by rebellion but preparing to take the first shaky and uncertain steps towards a truly united nation.

AMYOT, Chantal, Bianca GENDREAU, and John WILLIS. Special Delivery : Canada's Postal History. Edited by Francine Brousseau. Principal photography by Claire Dufour. [Preface by The Honourable André Ouellet]. (Fredericton, New Brunswick and Hull) : Goose Lane Editions, Canadian Museum of Civilization - Canadian Postal Museum, (2000). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xi,(1),13-150,(2). Illustrated in colour. Folio, black paper-covered boards with gilt lettering to front and spine.

"Sending and receiving mail lies at the heart of our lives and the history of our vast country. Dymbolized by the letter carrier, the letter, or the stamp, the post is part of our daily life. The postal system has taken part in Canada's great historical moments: in the fur trade, in the construction of the railway, on the abttlefield. It has evolved with the rhythm of explorers' journeys and the transformation of the land into the Canada we know today. The post office stands, literally and figuratively, right in the centre of our villages and cities, and it remains at the centre of our modern communications network.

To celebrate Canada's postal heritage, 'Special Delivery' showcases the jewels in the collection of the Canadian Postal Museum and tells the stories of our rarest and most beautiful stamps. Archival photos bring to life horse-drawn wagons and sleighs, early aircraft and snowmobiles, and remote post offices. Modern photos show the jets and trucks that move today's huge volume of mail.

Throughout the history of Canada's postal system, some things never change. It's the people - the clerks, the sorters, the drivers, the letter carriers, the postmasters - who make the mail go through. The responsibility of delvering the mail and the excitement of receiving it are the same today as they were in the days of sail." - from the dustjacket.

"In thiscollection of poems, new and old, various distances visit each other; the past solicits the present and is re-interpreted; his rural world of Essex, England, is juxtaposed with Montreal and the countryside of Quebec; privateworlds and obsessions confront public interests; Greece and the Far East a re labels on the baggage of the perennial traveller; and the ultimate distance is the mystery ofthe craft of poetry itself, patiently and humbly submitted to over a wide range of subjects, forms, and musical patterns." - fromthe rear cover. Very good. Due to its relatively small size, shipping cost s should be a bit cheaper than quoted. 20.00
