University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1979, ISBN:0802018963 
BURNHAM, Harold B. and Dorothy K. BURNHAM. "Keep Me Warm One Night" : EarlyHandweaving in Eastern Canada. (Toronto: published by University of Toront o Press, in co-operation with the Royal Ontario Museum 1979). Fourth Printing. Pp. (8),[ix]-xv,(7),[3]-387,(1), + 4 colour plates. Illustrated in black and white. Double column. 4to, olive cloth with black lettering to spine.Tennyson, Cape Bretoniana 4830: "Includes discussion of handweaving in Cap e Breton, relying on Florence Mackley, [...]".. "Among the domestic arts ofa pioneer society, handweaving is one of the most elegant but -- with the impact of industrialized manufacture of cloth -- one of the first to disappear. In the early years of the nineteenth century, the art was flourishing across eastern Canada; by the end of the same century many of its techniques, except in isolated areas, were little more than a memory. This is the first comprehensive study of traditional hanweaving as it was practised in Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic Provinces up to 1900. As such, it will interest all lovers of Canadiana and folk art in general, as well as the growing number of handweavers in Canada and the United States who have revived the craft and resurrected many of the lovely old patterns -- and who will find in its pages a basic pattern reference book." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. The background; 2. Tools and equipment; 3. The basic weaves, tabby, twill, and simple patterns; 4. Costume; 5. Carpets, blankets, linens; 6. An introduction to coverlets; 7. Two-shaft coverlets; 8. Overshot coverlets; 9. 'Summer and winter' coverlets; 10. Multiple-shaft coverlets; 11. Twilldiaper coverlets; 12. Doublecloth coverlets; 13. Jacquard coverlets. With bibliography and index. Very good in slightly edgeworn, unclipped dustjacket.

123 BURNS, John E., Rev. MAILLARD, Pierre Antoine Simon Abbe Maillard and Halifax,
Canadian Catholic Historical Association, 1937, 
BURNS, John E., Rev. The Abbé Maillard and Halifax. Reprinted from the Report of the Canadian Catholic Historical Association for 1936 - 1937. Pp (2),3-12 including covers. 8vo, stapled wrappers, lettered in black. "This paper is based on the will of the Abbé Maillard, which, with several codicils, is preserved in the Court House at Halifax, and on the Minutes of the Governor's Council, which are to be found in the Archives of Nova Scotia. These documents have been used in an article on Maillard in "Nova Francia", Vol. II, Nos. 3 and 4, by the R. P. Albert Dvid, of the Holy Ghost Fathers. I welcome this opportunity of studying them from a different angle, and of bringing them before an English speaking audience to whom they will be of interest." (p. 3). Abbé Pierre Antoine Simon Maillard (c. 1710 – 12 August 1762)was a French-born Roman Catholic priest. He is noted for his contributions to the creation of a writing system for the Mi'kmaq indigenous people of Î le Royale, Cape Breton Island, Canada. He is also credited with helping negotiate a peace treaty between the British and Mi'kmaq people, which resulted in the Burying the Hatchet Ceremony (Nova Scotia). He was the first Catholic priest in Halifax and is buried in the Protestant church yard of St. Paul's Church (Halifax). Tears along spine, margins browned, else very good.

Index. 4to, red cloth, maroon le ttering to front board and spine, colour illustrated endpapers. Photographyby Ed Kirkpatrick. "Many students and many people who have seen Mary Shepp ard Burton's work have asked for this book. Asked to see her work time and time again. Asked to know what makes her "tick." How does she produce such superior works of hoked art on such a variety of subjects, and in so many extraordinary ways? This is the reason why so many fine elements have been brought together to make this book. And this is why, much like her wonderfulwork, this book is unlike most others. Her writings are offered up here ex actly as she wrote them. They may have been entries in a notebook or journal. Thoughts jotted down on the back of an envelope, or written between the lines of someone else's text that she found meaningful. Look at them. Leaf through them to find what is of moment to you, and allow hem to open your mind to possibilities in your own life and work - whatever that work may be.In this book there is simply what constitutes a compendium of Mary Sheppar d Burton's unbelievably beautiful life work - and the lovely, undestated, humble, from-the-heart writings that accompany her paintings in wool, and validate them. These are accompanied as well by the work of some of her friends: among the finest textile artists in the world today." (from the dj). Contents : Front Matter; A Call to Creativity; Searching for the First Threads in Time; Txtiles That Lift the Spirit; I Dream in Color.

"Tracing the origins of St Francis Xavier University, JamesCameron describes the early nineteenth-century migration of the Highland C atholic Scots, the settlement and development of their communities, and thefounding of St. F.X. as a means of religious, economic, and social advance ment in eastern Nova Scotia. Basing his research on documantary and oral sources, Cameron reveals how the college developed out of the need to create adequate opportunities in higher education and continues to plan an integral role in the region's history and culture through its commitment to extension education. Among the developments in administration, faculty, students,curriculum, finances, and facilities, which Cameron examines, the formatio n of the Extension Department, Xavier Junior College (now University College of Cape Breton), and the Coady International Institute stand out as pivotal events in the history of St.F.X. and demonstrate its attunement to the changing needs of its constituency. The move to broaden the curriculum by including extension education and the promotion of various forms of economic cooperation to stimulate development in regional and international communities exemplify the unifying theme 'f or the people' at St. F.X.'s foundational core." - from the dj.
