After having spent some time working in the textile industry in Boston, he returned to Montreal to study for his advanced degree. He spends from midnight until eight in the mronign sweeping streetcars at the Hochelaga shops of the Metropolitan Transport Copmany. Jules is in a sense a man of two lives. His leisure time is spent with his student friends while his working hours are shared with 'Bouboule', Bill, Charlot and other sweepers. Jules aims at writing a novel in which he hopes to bring to life the diversity of milieus with which he comes into contact. These include those ofthe derelict, the homosexual and the prostitute, which give 'The Brawl' a naturalist tone. Jules fails to achieve his intellectual purpose and is forced to abandon the writing of the great French-Canadian novel and to reconcile himself to his proletarian life. Lebeuf's Fate is interwoven with that of Weston who attempts a thesis on the French-Canadians, tears it up and returns to Missouri to become a journalist; and of Sillery who, defeated by his homosexual obsessions, goes to Africa to study anthropology." - from thedustjacket.

Pp (6),1-98 . 8vo, white cloth, purple lettering to spine. "Hervé Jodoin, the dégagé, down-at-heel hero and narrator of this charmingly cynical French-Canadian novel, arrives in Saint Joachim to work in its sole bookshop. The proprietor, M. Léon Chicoine, is outwardly respectable, but in secret he's a champion of free thought and liberty. His most cherishedwares are not for every eye.. . . Hervé at first arranges his life tranqui lly enough, but before long - more for the sake of peace than from any biological urge - he becomes entangled in a fatiguing affair with his landlady.Worse, the confiidence his boss places in him as a fellow - libertarian le ads to an alarming row which involves M. le Curé and everyone else in SaintJoachim. A book by a subversive author named Voltaire is the occasion of t he crisis. This delightfully funny satire on life in the province of Quebeccould not, at first, find a French-Canadian publisher. In the end, having appeared in Paris, it was chosen by the Grand Jury des Lettres of Montreal as one of the ten best French-Canadian novels published between 1945 and i960. English-speaking Canadians may now discover this new and important Canadian novelist for themselves." - from the dj. Gérard Bessette (b. February 25, 1920, Sainte-Anne-de-Sabrevois, Quebec - d.

"This is the story of one of the world's great rivers, the greatest in eastern America. A northern stream, it flows through great reaches of timber land that stretch unbroken toward the pole; on its waters ships have moved for centuries and on its banks great historical dramas have been enacted.

The St. Lawrence is an international river; her rugged shorelines are at once Canadian and American, and the people who live along them, of no matter what origin, are citizens of the North American continent. The river is a living symbol of a great historical background and of the peace andbrotherhood that exists between the United States and Canada.

In the St. Lawrence country are to be found not only Americans and Canadians, with their towns and cities, but another and older civilization which exists nowherein the world but here. French Canada, which has been important in the history of North America, is part of the story of the St. Lawrence and Mr. Beston tells of it here in writing of truly compassionate beauty." from the dj.

BETCHERMAN, Lita-Rose. Ernest Lapointe : Mackenzie King's Great Quebec Lieutenant. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (2002). First Edition. Pp [i]-x,(2),[1]-426,(2),+ 12 pp plates. Index. 8vo, black cloth, red lettering to spine. “In this long-overdue study of one of Canada's most important political relationships, Lita-Rose Betcherman details the close association between Ernest Lapointe and Prime Minister Mackenzie King and its effect on Canadian history. Lapointe was the dominant French Canadian in federal politics from the start of the 1920s to the early years of the Second World War,serving as minister of justice and King's Quebec lieutenant. In return for promoting Liberal policies in Quebec, Lapointe was given an unusual amount of autonomy in his constituency, and, as the Prime Minister's understandin g of both the province's sensibilities and its language were poor, Lapointecame to be relied upon to provide King with the French-Canadian perspectiv e. Lapointe's role in maintaining Liberal party unity, and, by extension, national unity, was crucial. Equally important when it came to foreign affairs, he was known to take the lead over King, and the isolationist stance ofboth politicians served to undermine the League of Nations in its dealings with Italy over the invasion of Ethiopia. Betcherman draws on key primary sources for her material, including the Lapointe Papers, the King Papers, the King Diary, and the media of the times. Ernest Lapointe thus documents Canadian politics and society in a rigorous and accessible manner that will appeal to both a scholarly and general audience." - from the dj.

Haskell, Maine, A Bibliography of Its History 113.

"The six soldiers who crawled out of a swamp in Canada on July 30, 1775, were advance agents of an American expeditionary army assigned by the Continental Congress to sever the vast province of Quebec from theBritish crown. The attempt failed, but its turbulent story, a comparatively unknown part of the American Revolution, is stirringly retold in these pages by an expert on military history.

In May, Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain boys had taken Fort Ticonderoga, and Benjamin Arnold had wiped out the small British fleet on Lake Champlain. In Canada, Sir Guy Carleton, Governor of Quebec, waited on the alert for a rebel invasion, which was, unknownto him, to have two proings. The tale's main focus is Arnold's ill-fated march with his troops through the Maine wilderness to Quebec. This journey by an 'impudent little army of American' - some six hundred miles from the coast of New England to the St. Lawrence shore - is contrasted with GeneralRichard Montgomery's more statley siege of St. Jean, and the capture of Montreal. The narrative reaches a crescendo in the night battle fought for Quebec in a whirling snowstorm, during wehich Montgomery was killed and Arnold wounded. On the British side, Sir Guy Carleton emerges as a brave and admirable adversary." = from the dj flaps.

Myron Smith, American Navy 1789-1860 : Bibliography 573; Fredriksen, Free Trade and Sailors’ Rights : A Bibliography of the War of 1812 E107.

"Here for the first time is the exciting, dramatic story of the naval engagements fought on Lake Champlain and Lake George. Many of the most significant battles of the whole period between the first landings by Europeans on the North American continent and the conclusion of the War of 1812 some two centurie s later took place on these two lakes. Situated on the most important north-south gateway in North America — with the St. Lawrence River to the north and the Hudson River to the south — the two lakes were a natural focal point for the forces attempting to control the eastern seaboard from New York north. First France and England, later England and the new United States, threw their best soldiers and sailors into the desperate struggles for the region." - from the dj flap.
