(BACK, George). HOUSTON, C.Stuart, (ed.). Arctic Artist: The Journal and Paintings of George Back, Midshipman with Franklin, 1819-1822. Montreal / Kingston : McGill-Queen's University Press, 1994. First Edition. Pp. (4),[v]-xxviii,[1]-403,(1), including plates (many of which are in colour). Maps in text. 4to, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Commentary by I.S. MacLaren. A handsome piece of book production. ""Arctic Artist" is the liveliest and most complete account of Sir John Franklin's tragic first expeditionto the Arctic. George Back's prose captures the drama of the journey, whil e his superb watercolour sketches reveal the beauty and wonder of this northern land. Published for the first time, this is the complete text of Back's journal. "Arctic Artist" completes Stuart Houston's trilogy of the journals of Franklin's officers, and isl is particularly valuable because it is the only one that records the entire expedition; Franklin himself relied on it for his own published account of the journey. Both the journal and Back's earlier notes have been edited by Houston, who provides an introduction and extensive annotations, as well as synopses of the frank comments regarding the expedition recorded in the various journals of the Hudson's Bay fur trade posts. I.S. MacLaren's commentary on Back's paintings reveals a midshipman-artist of exceptional talent. Conversant with the artistic conventions and aesthetic temper of his age, Back used his sketch-books not only to depict the expedition's progress but also to capture his imaginative response to the northern wilderness. MacLaren edits and comments on two other documents written by Back during the expedition: a candid letter to his brotherand a poem dramatizing the disaster that claimed the lives of eleven of th e twenty explorers in Franklin's party." - from the dj flap.

On the contrary, this exhibition examines the way in which the theatrical has alt ered our perception of the nature of the work of art and its position in the division of the visible.

Alfred Goldsworthy Bailey, OC, FRSC (b. March 18, 1905, Quebec City, Quebec – d. April 21, 1997, Fredericton, New Brunswick).

Helm, The Indians of the Subarctic : A Critical Bibliography 9.

"The movement of one cultural group into the territory of another has always produced conflict: a conflict which is resolved at times by the obliteration of one group, but more often by a gradual fusion of elements drawn from both. This study examines the conflict between the Europeans and the Indians precipitated by the arrival of the French in the New World. The Indians were necessarily affected by the fur trade and the religious and social development of New France, and the meeting of contrary cultures resulted in most cases in the obliteration of that of the Indian. However, a fusion of Indian and European elements sometimes occurred, resulting in the birth of a 'Canadian' culture. The process has been repeated with teh immigration of every new cultural group to Canada.

This study analyses the conflict and traces thef usion of Canadian culture in its initial stage. First published in 1937, the book has proved an important contribution to an area of early Canadian history which has been receiving renewed attention. This volume is a reprinting of the original text with the addition of an index and a chapter appraising some of the leading developments of the past few years." - from the dustjacket.

Illustrated with 313 photographs (257 in duotone, 56 in color). 4to, black cloth with silver lettering to spine. "No photographer had a greater impact on the 1960s than David Bailey. The best of the new breed of fashion photographers who catapulted onto the scene in the early years of the decade, he would capture the image of Swinging London and become as well known asall the famous faces on which he trained his camera. After Bailey, photogr aphy would never be the same again. 'David Bailey -- Birth of the Cool' tells for the first time the full story of Bailey's life and work from 1957 to1969. Beginning with his early days in London's East End, it follows his p rogress through his first photographic experiences as an assistant to John French; his early years with Vogue; his close relationships with the stars of the music scene -- which would produce pictures of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones that remain forever part of the iconography of the 1960s -- and his friendships and love affairs with some of the period's most beautiful women, among them the models Jean Shrimpton and Penelope Tree and the actress Catherine Deneuve." - from the dustjacket.
