"The story of the serendipitous discovery or x-rays is almostlegendary, but it bears retelling in this volume. Although Rontgen was a r emarkable man, he likely did not foresee just how far his discovery would lead the next century. Despite its small population, Canada has played a full part in the early uses of radiation: the discovery of alpha particles, cobalt-60 treatment for cancer, Alexander Graham Bell's experiments, and one of the very first uses of a raadiograph in helping a surgeon to operate successfully, for example. [...] With more than 60 contributors and over 100 chapters, A New Kind of Ray brings together in one volume the story of Canadian achievements over the past 100 years in the fields of radiology, radiation oncology, nuclear medicine and radiation protection."

ALLAN, Peter John. The Poetical Remains of Peter John Allan, Esq., Late of Fredericton, New Brunswick. With a Short Biographical Notice. Edited by theRev. Henry Christmas. London : Smith, Elder, & Co., MDCCCLIII [1853]. Firs t Edition. Pp (4),[v]-xxiv,[1]-171,(1). 8vo, maroon pressed cloth, gilt lettering to spine. TPL 5364. "Peter John Allan (June 6, 1825 – October 21, 1848) was a Canadian poet. Peter John Allan was born in York, England, the third son of Dr. Colin Allan and Jane Gibbon. Peter John Allan's father was Chief Medical Officer at Halifax before moving to Fredericton in 1836 upon his retirement. Growing up in Fredericton, Peter John briefly attended King's College but left before completing his degree. He then turned to the study of law. About the same time, he began to publish his compositions in the New Brunswick Reporter and Fredericton Advertiser, a local newspaper published by James Hogg. Allan began to plan the publication of a volume of poetry. He solicited enough subscriptions to underwrite the cost of publication and had completed the manuscript when he died suddenly in 1848 at Fredericton, following a brief illness. His poems were posthumously published in London in the summer of 1853 by his brother, and entitled The Poetical Remainsof Peter John Allan. Influenced by the aesthetic concepts of the Romantic poets and especially by the style and versification of Lord Byron, Allan was able in his most effective poetry to break away from the moralistic attitudes and sentimental tone that had prevailed in locally written verse sincethe end of the 18th century. Allan was excited by the potential of man's i magination, by the range of experience that imagination offered to human consciousness, and by the relationship between the natural world and ideal reality, which only the imagination opened to human awareness. In his best poems, Allan used this intense sensitivity to ideal reality to control the rush of emotion he felt when confronted with the sensual beauty of nature. This control gave an intellectual toughness to his verse that was missing in the verses of contemporary Maritime poets such as Joseph Howe and Mary JaneKatzmann, who approached nature poetry by way of sentimentalism. The new n ote struck by Allan's verse was probably noticed by few. It had an immediate if muted effect on James Hogg's poetry, but it was not until the early verses of Charles G.D. Roberts and Bliss Carman that once again intellectual perception and emotional sensitivity were to be found in so subtle a balance in the poetry of Maritime Canada." - from wikipedia.
