BOUDREAU, R.L. The Man Who Loved Schooners. (Halifax, NS) : Nimbus Publishing, (2000). First Edition. Pp. (6),[1]-170. Illustrated in black and white.8vo, art-and photo-illustrated blue card covers with yellow lettering to f ront cover and spine. "After a German submarine sinks the merchant barkentine Angelus, her ten crew are left to face the cold and merciless North Atlantic in a small open lifeboat without food or water. Over the next ten horrifying days, 24-year-old Walter Boudreau witnesses the death of all but oneof his shipmates. Miraculously, Boudreau survives. Just as incredible, thi s agonizing introduction to life before the mast does nothing to cool his passion for sailing. Over the next four decades, Captain Boudreau's love affair with the sea aboard his various classic schooners takes him through nautical adventures both thrilling and extraordinary. This books plots an exciting voyage from a shipwreck in the far north and the dramatic rescue of a stranded U.S. naval vessel, to an eerie encounter with a tiger shark. We witness the terror of confronting a 65-foot rogue wave, a fight with drug pirates in the Bahamas, and the onslaught of a vicious hurricane. Journing from Canada's East Coast to the Caribbean islands, across the raging Atlantic and, finally, home to Canada, the trials and tribulations of a life at sea -- including the tragic loss of several of Boudreau's beloved schooners -- are tempered by the wonderful adventures of life under sail." - from the rear cover. Vg. Due to its small size, shipping costs should be a bit cheaperthan quoted. 12.50

123 BOURASSA, Henri Le Projet de Loi Navale : Sa nature, ses Conséquences: Discours prononcé auMonument National le 20 Janvier 1910
Devoir, 1910, 
BOURASSA, Henri. Le Projet de Loi Navale: Sa nature, ses Conséquences: Discours prononcé au Monument National le 20 Janvier 1910. (N.p.): Devoir, 1910. Pp 37. 8vo, stapled printed wraps. An important document in the history of Canadian naval development. The text is a transcription of a speech givenby Bourassa simultaneous with Parliamentary debate on the country's first Naval Service Act, outlining his opposition to the measure with characteristic drive and eloquence. After a detailed refutation of the arguments of parliamentarians and editorialists clamoring for a Navy, and a closely-reasoned presentation of his own position, Bourassa makes his appeal to the people of Canada: "Cette assemblée déclare que le parlement n'a pas le droit d'engager le Canada dans une politique navale entièrement nouvelle sans avoir au préalable obtenu le consentement du peuple. En conséquence, cette assemblée demande a la Chambre des Communes et au Sénat de différer l'adoption duprojet de loi déposé le 12 janvier 1910 jusqu'à ce que le peuple ait manif esté sa volonté par un plébiscite." It was an approach he had taken earlier, with regards to the South African war; as in that instance, it failed. Very good. 70.00

124 BOUTILIER, A. D. Citadel On Stage : British Military Theatre, Sports, and Recreation in Colonial Halifax. First Edition, paperback
SVP Productions, Halifax, N.S., 2014, ISBN:9780993750700 2014 0993750702 / 9780993750700 
BOUTILIER, A. D. The Citadel On Stage : British Military Theatre, Sports, and Recreation in Colonial Halifax. Halifax, N.S.: SVP Productions, (2014). First Edition. Pp (5),vi-xi,[1]-341,(1). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, illustrated maroon card covers, lettered in white.

Based on the author's thesis (master's)--Saint Mary's University, 2005, under title: The citadel on stage : the rise and decline of garrison theatre in Halifax. Redone with expanded endnotes, index, and illustrations.

"The Citadel On Stage is a lively and entertaining social history of British military officers stationed in colonial Halifax. The object of this volume is to survey a wide range of social, theatrical, and recreational performances up until confederation; and to examine the reasons why the garrison officers were entirely involved in these activities.

The main focus is on the garrison theatrical society as a social, cultural, and charitable entity, and how its existence revolved around the British institutions of colonial government and religion, as well as economics. The author illustrates a relationship between the theatricality of political performance and acting on stage, and shows how closely acting andpolitics are bound up with one another. While attesting that the Anglican Church supported garrison theatre, he gives a critical review of the incessant opposition by the non-conformist puritan element in the community. He also points out that the progress of theatre, sports, and recreation in colonial Halifax parallels the rise or decline of the economy. In his own style, A.D. Boutilier paints a vivid picture of the comedy and farce inherent inupper class society and in the British institutions moored at Halifax from 1749 to 1867." (from the back cover).

Contents :
Preface.
1. Setting the S tage. Prologue to Chapter Two.
2. The Citadel on Stage : The First Forty Years. The Rise of Garrison Theatre in Halifax. Decline, Revival, End. Garrison Colonial Prologues and Epilogue.

BROCK, Jeffry V. The Dark Broad Seas. (Toronto) : McClelland and Stewart, (1981). First Printing. Pp (10),11-275,(1). 8vo, blue cloth spine with silver lettering. Law 1498, Spadoni & Donnelly 3221. Volume I of With Many Voices : Memoirs of a Sailor. "The Dark Broad Seas covers the period from 1939 to the end of the Korean War." - from the dj. The Dark Broad Seas is the first volume of With Many Voices , Brock's fascinating and richly anecdotal memoir, tracing the naval career of a determined young Canadian, which began in 1940 when Brock sailed England, on loan to the Royal Navy. With superb narrative skill and lively wit, the author describes his experiences as a commander of escort groups in the U-boat ridden Atlantic of World War II. Whether transporting explosives, dealing with drunken officers, navigating thgrough hurricanes, or coping with the naval hierarchy, he paints a vivid picture of men and ships on war-time seas. Woven through the high adventure ofcombat are encounters with colourful political and military figures [e.g. : Lord Louis Mountbatten and Field Marshal Montgomery.], and the feisty people of Britain. The Dark Broad Seas covers the period from 1939 to the end of the Korean War. It is both a aspirited retrospective on a climactic era and an outspoken memoir by a asingular Canadian. It sets the stage for the political drama which was to affect, undermine, and ultimately destroy the traditional foundations upon which the Royal Canadian navy was built." - from the dj flaps.
