"Before winning recognition for her painting and writing, Emily Carr built a small apartment building with four suites that she hoped would earn her a living. But things turned out worse than expected, and in her forties, the gifted artist found herselfshoveling coal and cleaning up other people's messes. The House of All Sor ts is a collection of forty-one stories of those hard-working days and the parade of tenants -- young couples, widows, sad bachelors and rent evaders.Carr is at her most rueful, but filled with energy and an inextinguishable hope. Carr also ran a small kennel and bred bobtails to help out her meagr e income. In an additional twenty-five stories, she lovingly describes the mutual bonds of affection and companionship between her and her dogs. Her writing is vital and direct, aware and poignant, and as well regarded today as when The House of All Sorts was first published in 1944 to critical and popular acclaim."

196 CASTEEL, Richard W. Fish Remains in Archaeology and Paleo-environmental Studies. First Edition in dustjacket
Academic Press, London / New York / San Francisco, 1976, ISBN:0121638502 
CASTEEL, Richard W. Fish Remains in Archaeology and Paleo-environmental Studies. London / New York / San Francisco : Academic Press, 1976. First Edition. Pp (4),[v]-x,[1]-180,(2). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Fossil and sub-fossil faunal materials are of more than passing interest to many scientists, especially where archaeological faunal remains are concerned as these bridge the gap between the existing fossil record and our knowledge of the present. With this in mind, the book has been written to provide both a comprehensive introduction to the concepts and potentials involved with the study of fish remains, and the most complete reference source of bibliographical data yet to appear on the subject. In particular the use of Russian sources on the subject is unique. A discussion of the general osteology of fishes is followed by individual reviews of a number of key skeletal elements and fish scaies, enabling the investigator to identify the animals involved, assess their season of death, estimate their weight etc. There are numerous examples showing the value of sudies suchas these to archaeologists, paleontologists, paleo-climatologists, zoogeog raphers and fisheries workers throughout the world. The work represents an unusual approach, in that it deals with the study of one particular class of faunal data and defines its range of applications and limitations within the fields of prehistory and paleontology. It will be of great value to archaeologists, while workers in the field of paleontology, especially those interested in taphonomy and the study of ancient environments, will find much to interest them. It should allso appeal to fisheries biologists, ichthyologists and ecologists." (from the dj). Contents : 1. Introduction. 2. Making a comparative osteological collection of fish. 3. Otoliths. 4. Scales. 5. Vertebrae. 6. Comparison of methods for estimating fish size from bones. 7. Some applications. Richard W. Casteel was a Professor at Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. Bookplate, else very good in rubbed dustjacket. 60.00
