This century's most significant invertebrate fossil discovery, the Burgess Shale provides an unprecedented window into the explosive evolution during the Cambrian period that began about 540 million years ago, oneof the most enigmatic episodes in the history of life. This book provides the first comprehensive set of illustrations of the extraordinary life forms revealed in the Burgess Shale. In addition to the more common fossilized hard skeletons, the Burgess Shale preserved the soft parts of these organisms, which provide a key to understanding the early evolution of the major groups of animals that inhabit the earth today. The Fossils of the Burgess Shale shows much remarkable detail - including digestive tracts and other internal organs - of creatures preserved in particles of mud fine enough to penetrate every crack and unevenness. The book begins with the history of exploration and research in the Burgess Shale, the geologic setting and preservation of the fossils, and a discussion of the Cambrian radiation, the period when almost all the major phyla of animals evolved. These introductory chapters are followed by 199 high-quality photographs and line drawings with detailed species accounts that describe important features of each specimen, as well as the ecology and taxonomy of each group. A complete list of all currently accepted species described fromthe Burgess Shale and a comprehensive bibliography follow the illustrations. The Fossil of the Burgess Shale is a compendium of fascinating Cambrian treasures that offer a rare glimpse into the nature of early life on our planet. They have figured prominently in recent evolutionary debates." (from the dj). Very good in dustjacket. 50.00

103 BRINGHURST, Robert. Selected Poems. First Edition, Paperback.
Gaspereau Press, Kentville, N.S., 2009, ISBN:9781554470686 
BRINGHURST, Robert. Selected Poems. (Kentville, N.S.) : Gaspereau Press, Printers & Publishers, MMIX (2009). First Printing. Pp (2),[1]-265,(5). 8vo, red card covers with black lettering to spine, and black dustjacket with silver lettering to front wrapper and spine, cream wrap-around on back cover.“This volume of Robert Bringhurst's poetry brings together selections from several of his collections; along with the complete texts of some of his p olyphonic works – including Conversations with a Toad and The Blue Roofs ofJapan - and presents a series of new poems in a final chapter entitled "Th e Living." Moving from Japan to the Middle East to British Columbia, and drawing on the work of Eastern, pre-Socratic and Native North American thinkers, Bringhurst s work is as compelling as it is wide-ranging. Those familiar with the author's prose will find many of the same concerns manifested here - ideas about mythology, ecology, philosophy, language, art and music, taken up in sparse, elemental imagery, each poem an attempt to whittle back to h the experience of a body in a knowable and unknowable world.” - from the wrap-around. Very good in dustjacket. 45.00
