"In this, his firstbook of prose, distinguished Canadian poet Brian Bartlett offers a daily d iary from spring to spring. In the tradoition of John Clare's notebooks andletters, Henry David Thoreau's journals, and Annie Dillard's Pilgfrim at T inker Creek, Bartlett looks out at his surroundings with a poet's eye for detail, his ear attuned to the ringings of the natural world. Grounded in Nova Scotia, but reflecting travels further afield to Alberta, Nebraska, New York City and Ireland, the entries take on the qualities of field reports, sketches, commentaries, tributes and laments, quotations and collages. Over366 daily entries, Bartlett shows that the resonance between human life an d natrure is there, waiting to be heard." (from the back cover). Very good.12.50

Jessie Louise Beattie, (b. October 2, 1896, Blair, Ontario - d. October 5. 1985, Hamilton, Ont.).

"'Come then, sign on with me and let us begin our journey.' So says Captain Charles C. Dixon [born in Windsor, Nova Scotia] in his introduction to this stirring and legendlike biography of his life and adventures on the seven seas. Author Jessie L. Beattie signs us on, and the trip, like Captain Dixon's life, circles the globe and back again.

Here is a man who went to sea at the age of nine months with his Capain father and spent the next four years there. here is a man who spent the better part of the rest of his life there.

In The Last of the Windjammers, Volume II, Basil Lubbock wrote: 'Among the younger commanders one of the most interesting characters was Capatin C.C. Dixon. It would be hard to find Dixon's equal. All who sailed with him became his devoted admirers, and .... the boys in the half-deck worshipped him as their hero.' Here is a story of the sea and the crews that sailed them, of remote islands and exotic ports visited in the early 1900s."" - from the dj.

Whether executed in inkor with an X-Acto knife, it continues to be the basis of his whole oeuvre, which is at once sensual, expressive and troubling. 'Haven of Delight' als o presents, for the first time in Canada, the installation Haven, created by Pien in 2007 for the Bellevue Arts Museum in the United States. This impressive work consists of five interlocked structures of cut paper forming a labyrinth bounded by jagged hedges, through which visitors are invited to walk.

Small 8vo, illustrated pink and white card covers. “I think that every point of the policy is here adequately explained, and every criticism of it fully disposed of. I have dealt in a friendly spirit with those critics who entirely reject my policy, but I have not been sedulous to placate those who believe it in their hearts but reject it with their lips because they are afraid of being called"food taxers." That I propose to tax foreign food I have stated over and o ver again, because such a tax is the keystone of the system; but I also propose to draw the food supplies of this country from the greatest free-food area in the world—the British Empire as I see it in the near future.”- fromthe Preface. William Maxwell "Max" Aitken, 1st Baron Beaverbrook (1879-196 4) was a Canadian-British newspaper tycoon, politician, and writer. Aitken was born in Maple, Ontario, Canada, in 1879.

BEAVERBROOK, Lord. My Early Life. Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada : Brunswick Press, (1965). First Printing. An Atlantic Advocate Book. Pp. (10),[11]-199,(1). Illustrated. Decorated endpapers. Tall 8vo, blue cloth, black lettering to spine. William Maxwell "Max" Aitken, 1st Baron Beaverbrook, PC,ONB, (b.May 25, 1879, Maple, Ontario, – d. June 9, 1964, Cherkley Court, M ickleham, Surrey) grew up in Newcastle, New Brunswick. "Lord Beaverbrook's own story covers his earliest memories on the Miramichi through the seven golden years of his financial career to his move to England and entry into British politics in 1910. 'In the space of fifty years,' he writes, 'my activities cover three successive adventures in the most vital spheres of modern affairs -- Business, Politics and Journalism. I left finance just as I had scored a preliminary success pointing apparently the way to vaster triumphs in a continent where at that time the business man was king. I left the politics of the House of Commons at the same psychological moment. I turnedaway, as in a mere mood of petulance, and flung myself once again into a n ew sphere of journalistic activity, of which I was wholly ignorant. Was I really quite sane?' In the pages which follow, the image of the writer emerges clear and unmistakable. Early in the story we read his belief which stamped his thinking through life, that man, however small his beginning and however poor his opportunities, is master of his fate. That belief, he says, is at the root of the greatness of Anglo-American civilization. Certainly it was the epitome of his own philosophy. The early part of the book has much advice to offer the young in how to succeed in life. 'Men ask: How did the fellow do it? In reading his record, can I pick up some hints which may be useful to myself?' The second part describes how he put his precepts to the trial and succeeded in the most spectacular success story of the century. The New Brunswick boy became a multi-millionaire before he was thirty, and in doing so created a series of industrial complexes which stand today, half a century later, as monuments to his genius, with such names as Canada Cement, Steel Company of Canada, Calgary Power and a host of others." - from the dustjacket.
