141 CLARKE, George Elliott. Red. First Edition.
Gaspereau Press, Kentville, 2011, ISBN:9781554470983 
CLARKE, George Elliott. Red. (Kentville, NS): Gaspereau Press, 2011. First Printing. Pp. (12),13-157,(3). 8vo, illustrated white card covers with red and black lettering to front cover and spine. "'Red' joins George Elliott Clarke's previous 'colouring' books -- 'Blue' and 'Black' -- in whic he displays an expansive range of poetic forms and rhetorical poses. Its poems mixthe candid sexuality of pre-Christian Rome with the pop sentimentally [sic ?] of Italian screen scores of the 1960s and 70s, drenching us in the bruteviolence of Titus Andronicus., the reflections of Malcolm X and the music of Charles Mingus (whose 'bass sounds like a typewriter / Punctuating Ulysses'). Whether he situates his reader in his father's Halifax cab, on a beach in Rhodes, or in front of Alma Duncan's painting 'Young Black Girl', Clarke is ever sensitive to 'the hard work of words, / The even harder work of love.' 'Red' rings with Clarke's lush voice, full-throated and unparalleled." - from the rear cover. Very good. 12.50

"Tars is a gripping firsthand account of life in the Royal Navy during four years of crucial innovation and fierce war with France and Spain. Through the lives of a small band of sailors from across the ranks Trafalgar author Tim Clayton paints a vivid picture of the navy andthe era, from close-quarter battles and roistering on the streets of Londo n, to the political decisions that built and destroyed whole empires. In this death-or-glory era the navy became the cherished weapon of an aggressivenation hungry for wealth. Fighting at sea was carried out at ever-closer q uarters and with ever-increasing intensity of firepower. Using newly discovered first-person sources, Tars takes us right up close to the crashing waves, the coarse rope, 'the music of great-guns', the blood and splinters of a pitched sea battle--and to these men's daily struggles as Britain for thefirst time conquered the waves." -- from dust jacket.

Review and Herald Publishing Association / Pacific Press Publishing Association, Washington, DC and Hhagerstown, MD / Oshawa, Ontario, Canada and Montemorrelos, Mexico, 1970, 
CLEVELAND, E.E. Free at Last. Washington, DC and Hagerstown, MD Review and Herald Publishing Association / Oshawa, Ontario, Canada and Montemorrelos, Mexico : Pacific Press Publishing Association, (1970). Pp (4),5-447,(1). Ilustrated throughout. Large 8vo, art-illustrated blue glossy paper covered boards (hardcover), lettered in yellow and black.

Edward Earl Cleveland (b. March 11, 1921, Huntsville, Alabama – d. August 30, 2009, Huntsville, Alabama) commonly known as E. E. Cleveland was an author, civil rights advocate and evangelist of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

"The history of the black man in America is inseparably intertwined with the Bible. During the dark night of the black man's servitude the preacher was the only public speaker allowed on the plantation, and the Scriptures were the only approved reading. Listening to the stories of the Hebrew slavery and the Exodus, the black mandiscerned a similarity of experience and made the message of the Bible the cradle of his hope. The church became the temple of hope, and the Negro spiritual reflected the ebb and flow of his dreams. Ranging from the abject pathos of "Nobody Knows but Jesus" to the triumphant notes of "Free at Last," the black man's music mirrors his history and hopes. This book is dedicated to his hope." (p. 12).

The Acadiens and Cajuns share much in common. They were driven adrift from their ancestral homes in Acadie in 1755 by British soldiers during theGrand Derangement and wandered homeless for a decade. Some returned to Aca die, while others settled abroad, notabily in the Spanish Creole colony of Louisiana. Despite their shared history, these cultural cousins developed different musical traditions, with Cajun and Creole also spawning Zydeco andSwamp Pop music. This book chronicles the evolution of both music traditio ns in a set of nearly 200 biographical profiles of musicians and more than 500 critical discographies. Of special interest are the stories behind the songs of such classic Acadien and Cajun compositions as Evangeline, Jolie Blonde, Jambalaya, Acadian Driftwood, and Acadie a la Louisiane." - from therear cover. Very good. Signed and inscribed by the author on the half-titl e leaf. 18.00
