2 ALSON, Sandra, (ed.) MacKENZIE, William Ord BLACKSTOCK, Cicely , (ed.) Another World : William Ord Mackenzie’s Sojourn in the Canadas, 1839 - 1843
2015, 
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. Contents : Ilustrations and Maps; Preface and Acknowledgments; Introduction; Textual Note; Journals; [Journal,Volume I]; Description of a Sojourn in Another World, Volume II, Toronto, U.C. 1839; Journal of a Sojourn in Another World!

12 ARROW, John New Design for Sail.. First Edition in dustjacket
Art and Technics, London, 1951, 
ARROW, John. New Design for Sail. London : Art and Technics, [58 Frith Street, W1], 1951. First Editon. Pp (8),9-88 + frontispiece. The plate section (pp.57-88) contains 57 b&w photos. Text Illustrations. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Toy 4714. "Unlike many of the Englishman's traditional sports, Yachting has not faded with the way of life that brought it into being. On the contrary more people are sailing than ever betore, and they are bringing to their pastime a striving for technical expertise wholly in line with the urges of their environment. But yachtsmen today not only thinkharder about their sailing—they think harder aoout their boats, large or s mall, than did their forefathers. They have grasp of the relation between design and performance which is quite new in a sport in which the amateur decisively dominates the scene, and they have shown themselves quick to appreciate the advantages which new methods of fabrication, and new materials, may offer them. This discriminating enthusiasm has advanced the art of yacntdesign, still mainly in professional hands like the science of yacht build ing itself, at an unprecedented rate. New Design for Sail synthesizes the various influences and trends which have combined to produce the contemporary sailing vessel, and demonstrates it as a new Classic Type, completely in accord both with the aspirations of modern yachtsmen and the facilities which modern technology has placed at their disposal. The illustrations include over 20 diagrams in the text and nearly 90 photographs. John Arrow has been sailing in all types of yacht for the past 25 years. He has made an extensive study of the latest trends in design, and as Yachting Correspondent for a daily newspaper he has been able to make a critical assessment of performance." (from the dj). Contents : The Hull (Form - Construction - Accommodation); Sails and Running Rigging (Sail Plan - Materials - Running Rigging); Masts, Spars and Standing Rigging (Function); Gear; Conclusion, With index. The plates include "Uffa Fox's Flying 25 (Kingfisher)", "Regatta at Cowes, 1911", "Ranelagh Sailing Club", "Start of the North Sea Race, 1950", "Myth of Malham", and many more.

"In the 1960s and 1970s, boxing was a popular sport in Halifax. It was driven by local men from all parts of town, and w as woven into the social fabric of the city. Boxing fans were a social club. Local gyms were always on the lookout for new talent and several times a year, some big names would be invited to meet the local stars. David Downeywas one of those stars - an enigmatic prize fighterwho became Canadian Mid dleweight champion. Downey's boxing career coincided with one of the most dynamic period in Halifax's history, a time of economic and cultural transition and the emergence of the city's black population as a social and political force. This book offers a fresh perspective on issues of race and racism, with first-hand accounts from a diverse group of witnesses to the eventsof the 1960s and 1970s. Among these are Premier Gerald Regan, former Walte r Fitzgerald, well-known local journalists Pat Connolly, Harris Sullivan, Ace Foley, and civil rights activists Joan and Rocky Jones. Also included are the renowned Downey brothers -- Graham Downey, longtime city councillor and his brother Billy who owned the famous Arrows Club." - rear cover.
