165 MARTIN, Willis P. Two Outports : A History of Dildo-New Harbour. Paperback, Signed.
Flanker Press, St. John's, 2006, ISBN:1894463900 
MARTIN, Willis P. Two Outports : A History of Dildo - New Harbour. St. John's, NL: Flanker Press Ltd., 2006. First Printing. Pp. (8),1-[270],(8). Illustrated with dozens of black and white photographs. 8vo, illustrated blue card covers with blue and white lettering to front, white lettering to spine. "The Dildo-New Harbour area of Trinity Bay has a rich history, beginning with the Maritime Archaic Indians, who inhabited Dildo Island about 4,000 years ago. Early in the seventeenth century, visitors from John Guy's colonyat Cupids examined Beothuk Indian encampments at Dildo Pond and on Dildo I sland. In the nineteenth century, Dildo Island was the site of a major cod hatchery and in six years released one billion cod fry into Newfoundland waters. The Lester House of Trinity had fishermen stationed on Dildo Island and at New Harbour for the fishing seasons by the early 1760s. By the early 1800s the Lesters had established a major shipbuilding enterprise at New Harbour, an industry that continued until 1935. A major economic boost to thearea came with the start of whaling out of South Dildo in the late 1940s. The combination of whaling, fish processing, and preparation of mink food at the South Dildo complex provided employment for hundreds during the '50s and'60s. It is difficult to separate the histories of both communities, since from the beginning Dildo and New Harbour have been intimately interconnected by social interaction and common economic pursuits. This book celebrates the unique outport heritage of Newfoundland through the shared experiences of the livyers of these two proud communities." - from the rear cover.

MATTHEWS, L. Harrison. Penguins, Whalers, and Sealers : A Voyage of Discovery. New York : Universe Books, (1978). First US Edition. Pp 165. 8vo, blue cloth. A naturalist's lively appreciation of Antarctic fauna, particularly of the perennially fascinating penguin. As H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh expresses it in his Foreword, "Penguins have a charm all of their own. They are not exactly the most beautiful of birds, but they have an elegant air about them which is almost unique. Paradoxically, they are also alone among birds and most animals in that they are quite definitely comic. Added to all this is that their sexes are so alike and the climate of the Antarctic is so harsh that their particular problems of mating and breeding defy the imagination."

171 McINTYRE, Joan, (ed.) MOWAT, Farley Mind in the Waters : A Book to Celebrate the Consciousness of Whales and Dolphins. First Edition in dustjacket
Charles Scribner's Sons / Sierra Club, 1974, ISBN:0684139952 
McINTYRE, Joan, (ed.). Mind in the Waters : A Book to Celebrate the Consciousness of Whales and Dolphins. New York : Charles Scribner's Sons / San Francisco : Sierra Club Books, (1974). First Printing. Pp (12),13-240. Illustrated. 4to, brown cloth spine, blue paper-covered boards, blue lettering to spine. "Whales and dolphins have engaged human imagination from the beginning of recorded history. And now, perhaps more fantastically than has ever been imagined before, it appears that whales and dolphins possess a full intelligence, different from ours yet no less complex. It appears that these creatures, celebrated in fable and myth, are aware, can think, have consciousness. Mind in the Waters is a collection that outlines the capabilities and consciousness of whales and dolphins. Drawing on myythology as well as the most advanceed scientific findings, on poetry as wel as as natural history, on statistics as well as photographs, it is a basic compendium of information about whales and dolphins and a pictunre of the new understandings that seem to lie just beyond our present knowledge. It is also a call to action. Today, a whale is being killed every fourteen minutes. Thirty-six thousand whales are killed every year. The reasons for stopping this slaughter are humanitarian, biological, ecological and now the extraordinary fact that the creatures being destroyed are in all likelihood creatures with consciousness. Richly designed, made out of passion and urgency, Mind in the Waters is a book of revolutionary force. It asks its readers to reconsider both themselves and the life in the waters around them, and to examine what may be a c common thread of consciousness." (from the dj). Parts : 1. Myths and Beginnings; 2. Brains and Consciousness; 3. Living in the Sea; 4. Discovery and Response, 5. Let Us Act. Includes "The Trapped Whale" by Farley Mowat (pp.13-28) - excerpted from his book, A Whale for the Killing, with somenew ideas and one old story added. Very good in lightly rubbed dustjacket. 30.00
