146 MERRIMAN, Marcus. Rough Wooings : Mary Queen of Scots, 1542-1551. First Edition in dustjacket.
Tuckwell Press, East Linton, Scotland, 2000, ISBN:186232090x 
MERRIMAN, Marcus. The Rough Wooings : Mary Queen of Scots, 1542-1551. (EastLinton, Scotland) : Tuckwell Press, (2000). First Printing. Pp. (4),v-xxix ,(1),[1]-448,(2), + 12 p. of plates (some of which are in colour). With several more black-and-white illustrations to text. 8vo, maroon cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The 'Rough Wooings', fought by major figures of sixteenth-century Europe for the hand of the young Mary Queen of Scots, were wars as intense, wide-ranging and devastating as the wars of the three Edwards which ravaged fourteenth-century Scotland. But the Wooings were wars of independence as well. As the kings of England and France vied to control thebestowing of Mary's hand in marriage, so Scotland herself strove to remain free of them. And Scotland won. But it was a close-run thing. The politics and international diplomacy involved were as sophisticated and complex as the century provides; the warfare and political literature as revolutionaryand modern as for any part of Europe. Protestant zealots were forged on it s anvil; massive navies ranged the North Sea; Italian military technology was brought to bear. All for one of the most fascinating queens in history. This is the story of her beginning, a rich and vibrant epic involving many of the major figures of early modern history. Henry VIII of England, Francois I and Henri II of France bestride the canvas, but even they cannot obscure the beguiling figure of the young Mary Queen of Scots." - from the dustjacket.

(BORDEN, Frederick). MILLER, Carman. A Knight in Politics : A Biography of Sir Frederick Borden. Montreal and Kingston: McGill-Queens University Press, (2010). First Edition. Pp. (4),[v]-x,(2),[3]-430. Illustrated in black and white. 8vo, black paper-covered boards, silver lettering to spine.

Sir Frederick William Borden, KCMG, PC (b. May 14, 1847, Cornwallis Township, Nova Scotia d. January 6, 1917, Canning, Nova Scotia Canada)

"Sir Frederick Borden (1847-1917), physician and entrepreneur, was Canada's longest-serving minister of defence. His untidy private life, however, often captured more attention than his public service. A Knight in Politics explores the history of the controversial public figure who led Canada's armed forces through the South African War, expanded and modernised the country's military from 1896-1911, and prepared them for service in the First World War.

Derided as a buffoon and an ignorant civilian by military critics, Borden became the public's lightning rod and Prime Minster Wilfrid Laurier's point man for negotiating Canada's sensitive military agenda during an era of high imperialism. Carman Miller presents a balanced assessment that seamlessly blends history and social and cultural analysis to highlight Borden's relationships within the contemporary web of nepotism, patronage, business and family. A detailed account of the leading role Borden played in the development of modern Canada, A Knight in Politics showcases the transition to corporate capitalism and changes in public morality and social and political relationships during the "Age of Camelot." - from the dj.

A biography of the Cornwallis, Nova Scotia-born Borden (1847-1917), who was integral in the organizing and funding of the modern Canadian armed forces system, serving as the Minster of Defence for fifteen years under Wilfrid Laurier's Liberal government.

Borden was also the cousin of Canada's eighth Prime Minister, Robert Borden.

151 MUIRHEAD, B.W. Development of Postwar Canadian Trade Policy : The Failure of the Anglo-European Option. First Edition in dustjacket
McGill-Queens University Press, Montreal and Kingston, 1992, ISBN:0773509224 1992 0773509224 / 9780773509221 
MUIRHEAD, B.W. The Development of Postwar Canadian Trade Policy : The Failure of the Anglo-European Option. Montreal and Kingston : McGill-Queens University Press, (1992). First Edition. Pp. (8),[ix]-x,[1]-230. 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine.

"In The Development of Postwar Canadian Trade Policy, B.W. Muirhead shows that Canada actively pursued a policy of multilateralism and non-discrimination as epitomized by the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. In addition, the government tried unsuccessfully to resurrect commercial ties with the United Kingdom, its largest pre-war overseas market. Muirhead finds that in both these efforts Canada was thwarted by postwar realities that hindered its exploitation of markets in Britain and Western Europe. The United States remained the only market able and willing to absorb the billions of dollars of Canadian exports on which Canada's prosperity depended." - from the dj.

"B.W. Muirhead traces the development of Canadian trade policy and trade patterns from the Second World War to the election of the Diefenbaker government in 1957. Scholars have emphasized the importance of this period in determining Canadian trade patterns, but have disagreed about the options Canada had and the decisions Canadian governments made. Muirhead demonstrates that Canada's options were so severely constrained by the postwar context that there were in effect no choices to make. He thus makes a strong case against the theory that Canada 'sold out' to the United States." - from the introduction.

Chapters:
1. The Decline of Anglo-Canadian trade, 1930-45;
2. The Failure of the Multilateral option: The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, 1945-51;
3. "Hold That Line": Continued Dollar Discrimination, 1950-57;

MUKHERJEE, Bharati. Jasmine. (Markham, Ont.) : Viking, (1989). First Canadian Printing. Pp (12),3-241,(5). 8vo, red cloth spine, green paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. "When Jasmine Vidh, a young woman in a small Indian town, is widowed by a terrorist bomb, her fate is a life of isolation and despair. But six years later, Jasmine has become Jane Ripplemeyer, resident of Iowa and member of an unsteady and unconventional American family - a family that includes an Iowa banker, an adopted Vietnamese refugee and her own pregnant self. In following this transformation of a younq lite,Bharati Mukherjee has written a novel of stunning intensity, striking iron y and gentle humour. Jasmin's path through her new homeland weaves through a shifting American landscape: from Florida and the primitive brutality of the scarred Vietnam vet who brings her there; to an India recreated with stifling insularity in Queens; to Manhattan's upper west side and the exotic mystery of the selt-assured young couple for whom she works. But it is in Iowa, when Bud Ripplemeyer is crippled by a desperate farmer, that Jasmine learns how completely her fate has become part of America's. In Jasmine, Bharati Mukherjee has created a heroine as exotic and unexpecte as the many worlds she lives in. " (from the dj). Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00

It has witnessed the birth or growth of three of our greatest religions -- Ju daism, Christianity and Islam. It links three of the world's six continents-- Europe, Asia and Africa. To the peoples living around its periphery, it has served at various times as a cradle and a grave, a bond and a barrier, a blessing and a battlefield. It has inspired writers from Homer and Virgi l to Norman Douglas and Patrick Leigh Fermor. Geographically, it is unlike any other sea in the world; in historical importance also, it stands alone.[... Norwich] tells the story of the Middle Sea itself -- a story that beg ins with the Phoenicians and the Pharoahs and ends with the Treaty of Versailles after the First World War. He takes us through the Arab conquests of Syria and North Africa; the Holy Roman Empire and the Crusades; Ferdinand and Isabella and the Spanish Inquisiton; the great sieges of Rhodes and Malta by the Sultan Syleyman the Magnificent; the pirates of the Barbary Coast and the Battle of Lepanto; Nelson and Napoleon; the Greek War of Independence and the Italian Risorgimento. The story ends with the tragic Gallipoli campaign and the war in the desert which brought fame to the enigmatic T.E. Lawrence." -from the dustjacket.
