182 BLISS, Michael Plague : A Story of Smallpox in Montreal. First Edition in dustjacket
HarperCollins , Toronto, 1991, ISBN:0002156938 
BLISS, Michael. Plague : A Story of Smallpox in Montreal. (Toronto) : HarperCollins, (1991). First Edition. Pp (6),7-304, + 16-pages central section of b&w photos. 8vo, red cloth spine, light brown boards, gilt lettering to spine. Roland & Bernier, Secondary Sources in the History of Canadian Medicine: A Bibliography, Volume 2, pp.47 & 154. "In January 1885 the people of Montreal celebrated one of the great winter carnivals of the 19th century. Afew weeks later a railway porter arrived in the city suffering from smallp ox. The mishandling of his case sparked a "carnival of death" in the city, a horrifying smallpox epidemic that killed 3,000 Montrealers in less than four months. Every single death could have been prevented by vaccination. InPlague: A Story of Smallpox in Montreal, historian Michael Bliss has uncov ered one of the most remarkable untold stories in Canadian history. From wonderfully rich sources, he has crafted a "non-fiction novel," recreating Montreal and the holocaust of smallpox in vivid detail. The cast of characters includes quack doctors, French-Canadian strongmen, black-robed priests, crusading journalists, Louis Riel, and the members of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. The epidemic in Montreal turned French against English, Protestantagainst Catholic, and the rich against the poor. Troops had to be called o ut to guard smallpox hospitals against anti-vaccination rioters. The whole city of Montreal was quarantined by the rest of North America as a charnel-house of disease and death. This was the last smallpox epidemic to devastate a city in the Western world .Michael Bliss has written a stark history oflife and death, and the Quest for salvation and immortality. Plague is a t hriller, a horror story, possibly a parable about the epidemic diseases of our time, and a Canadian contribution to the world's literature about pestilence and the human condition.'" - from the dj. Very good in spine sunned, lightly worn but unclipped dustjacket. 22.00

He himself is the son of an optometrist who, when he had to, would trade a pair of spectacles for a bushel of potatoes. His stories have the humour and grit typical of both the Yankee andthe Maritimer. As a writer, his vision is more serene, less turbulent than Richards', his style less vexed, more transparent than Bauer's. Above all, he is his own man, a man who sees things as they are and, like God, is sat isfied." - from the rear cover. Includes the following stories: "The Ark Rested in the Seventh Month", "The State Meet", "Roland Fogg", "Extreme Unction", "Screwdriver", "Widening the Road", "Blanche Ledet", and "Squatter's Rights".

BOSHER, J.F. The Gaullist Attack on Canada, 1967-1997. Kingston and Montreal: McGill-Queens University Press, (1999). Pp. (6),[vii]-xi,(3),[3]-331,(1). 8vo, blue cloth with silver lettering to spine. "What lay behind Charles de Gaulle's 'Vive le Québec libre!' speech in Montreal on 24 July 1967; Philippe Rossilon's activities in New Brunswick, Belgium and Africa; and the sinking of Greenpeace's Rainbow Warrir in New Zealand in 1985? J.F. Bosher argues that the motivation behind all these incidents was France's imperial ambition. He contends that behind the screen of teh harmless fraternizing of the international francophonie, French nationalists have been at work to stimulate French revolutionary nationalism in Quebec and elsewhere. He argues that the Gaullist ideology behind these attempts rests on a set of mythsabout past events, age-old resentment of the English-speaking nations, and a deep-rooted belief in the superiority of France, its language, and its c ulture." - from the dj.
