Index. 8vo, blue paper covered boards, silver lettering to spine. "To many, the word conjures up images of swashbucklers in the eighteenth century. The very idea that pirates might still ply the seas today seems preposterous and far-fetched. But pirates most definitely still exist. And as TerrorOn the Seas shows, their violent activities on the other side of the glove can have wide-reaching effects— whether on our economy or the war on terro r. Daniel Sekulich takes readers on an eye-opening voyage into the world ofhigh seas piracy, a multinational, multibillion-dollar enterprise controll ed by organized crime syndicates and local warlords. Sekulich sails throughsome of the most dangerous waters on the planet to chronicle this threat t o national and international security. He meets with victims of attacks, those fighting the perils, and even pirates themselves. Terror on the Seas tells an explosive story of modern piracy, one that’s costing over $25 billion a year to battle and that poses the risks of environmental disaster, economic chaos, and holy war." - from the dj.

Pp (4),v-viii,(2),1-272,(6) + 16-page central section of b&w photos. 8vo, brown cloth, dark blue lettering to spine. Map end-papers. O'Dea 2970. "When Mr. J. Harry Smith retired from the management of the Press Bureau of the C.P.R., which he originally organized, his chiefdesire was to go to Newfoundland and write a book about it. Born in Bristo l, England, a seaport that had sent many an adventurer to the island colony, it was natural that he should also feel it in his bones. What he knew casually, he now wanted to know intimately. And so he took a holiday. Wandering at his leisure, he covered much of the accessible coast, wherever there were eople, by train, motor car, boat, and on foot; and always with notebookand camera. He had time to gaze and time to talk, and the result of it all is this very readable book. There is a good deal of history mixed up with his story, for there is a lot of history about the Island itself. It helps explain the Island and the people. It is a reticent land. Life there has never been easy, and few Islanders have ever been boastful or flamboyant. Butto those who tarry and are friendly Newfoundland yields its deep friendshi p, and something of its secret. Newfoundland Holiday is a necessary book. It is a covered bridge to a deep understanding of our newest province. It reveals the rich contribution that the Island is prepared to make to our common national life. And it is a delight to read, full of enchantment, taies of heroism, the charm of old buildings, and the never-ending surprises of the folkways of the people themselves. " - from the dust jacket.

200 STANRES, John. Cornish Hug.
Balmuir Book Publishing Ltd., Ottawa, 1985, ISBN:0919511287 
STANRES, John. The Cornish Hug. (Ottawa): Balmuir Book Publishing Ltd., (1985). First Paperback Printing. Pp.(10),[1]-220,(2). 8vo, illustrated white card covers with brown lettering to front cover and spine. "Spy, trader, soldier of fortune and lover, the Cornishman works for both sides during the American Revolutionary War. With a Scottish runaway at his side, he lands on the shores of North America and becomes embroiled in the struggle for a continent. While George Washington fights for ascendancy and Guy Carleton defends an embattled Canada, Hugo Penryn and Andrew Cluny move back and forthacross the lines of battle. They are merchants who specialize in espionage and piracy -- two fictitious characters among the real-life heroes and rog ues of our heritage. In his fourth novel, John Starnes, Canada's former spymaster and head of the security service, takes us into our past. Steeped inhistory, his tale of adventure is often more credible than the real-life a ction of the Americn revolution and the defence of Canada. The story culminates in the Battle of Penobscot Bay -- an almost forgotten sea battle that was the worst naval disaster in American history until Pearl Harbour." - from the rear cover. Covers lightly rubbed, else very good. 15.00
