"'I'll kill him!' said Mavis Gallant. Pierre Trudeau almost did, leading him('Run!') into a whizzing stream of traffic that almost crushed them both. Alistair MacLeod accused him of a 'home invasion' to grab the manuscript of'No Great Mischief'. And Paul Martin denounced him to a laughing Ottawa cr owd, saying 'If Shakespeare had had Doug Gibson as an editor, there would be no Shakespeare!' On the other hand, Alice Munro credits him with keeping her writing short stories when the world demanded novels. Robertson Davies,with a nod to Dickens, gratefully called him 'My Partner Frequent'. And W. O. Mitchell summoned up a loving joke about him on his deathbed. 'Stories About Storytellers' shares these tales and many more, as readers follow DougGibson through forty years of editing and publishing some of Canada's shar pest minds and greatest storytellers." - from the dustjacket.

214 GLASSCO, John) SUTHERLAND, Fraser John Glassco : An Essay and Bibliography. First Edition.

(GLASSCO, John). SUTHERLAND, Fraser. John Glassco : An Essay and Bibliography. (Downsview, ON): ECW Press, (1984). First Printing. Pp. (6),7-121,(3). 8vo, decorated grey card covers with white lettered black title block to front cover, black titles to spine. "He was a gigolo in a Paris brothel and caused a scene at a Gertrude Stein party. He was Mayor of Foster in Quebec'sEastern Townships. He wrote the novels 'Fetish Girl' and 'The Temple of Pe derasty'. He won the Governor-General's Award for Poetry. He was John Glassco (1909-81), whom Fraser Sutherland calls 'a dignified and elusive man, something of a genius'. In 'Memoirs from Montparnasse', Glassco linked the present with the glorious Paris years of Joyce, Hemingway, and the surrealists. Through his many translations and anthologies, he helped English Canada understand Quebec better. In his erotica, his unflatering good taste yielded insights into the tangled psychosexual world of Aubrey Beardsley and Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. Always, he was a lyric poet. Sutherland has entered the labyrinth of Glassco's remarkable career and emerged with many new facts about one of the foremost figures in 20th-century Canadian literature. 'John Glassco: An Essay and Bibliography' is the first detailed treatment of a writer who -- often styled as a fop, dilettante, and Edwardian eccentric -- maintained an hermetic devotion to his own large talent. Sutherland's book will be indispensible to anyone unraveling the truth about a mysterious and complicated man whose life and work commands fresh attention." - from rear. Bibliography includes more than 250 references. Name inked to flyleaf,five characters inked inside rear cover, else very good. Due to the small size of this book, shipping costs should be cheaper than quoted. 18.00

216 GODWIN, Joscelyn Athanasius Kircher's Theatre of the World. First Edition in dustjacket.
Thames & Hudson, London, 2009, ISBN:9780500258606 
GODWIN, Joscelyn. Athanasius Kircher's Theatre of the World. (London) : Thames & Hudson, (2009). First Edition. Pp (6),[7]-304. Double and triple column. Illustrated throughout. 4to, dark blue cloth, silver lettering to spine. Athanasius Kircher, S.J. (May 2, 1602 – November 28, 1680) was a German Jesuit scholar and polymath who published around 40 major works, most notably in the fields of comparative religion, geology, and medicine. Kircher hasbeen compared to fellow Jesuit Roger Boscovich and to Leonardo da Vinci fo r his enormous range of interests, and has been honored with the title "Master of a Hundred Arts". He taught for more than forty years at the Roman College, where he set up a wunderkammer. "In the 17th Century Athanasius Kircher was a phenomenon. In the 21st he has become a cult. By profession a Jesuit priest, he made himself an authority on almost every subject under the sun. His most vaunted achievement was to translate the Egyptian hieroglyphs, and though he got them wrong his work marked the beginning of Egyptology.Kircher was the first to map ocean currents; the first to offer a comprehe nsive theory of vulcanism; the first to compile an encyclopaedia on China, a dictionary of Coptic, a hook dedicated solely to acoustics; the first to construct a machine for coding messages and another for composing music. Other interests included biblical archaeology and Christian and nonChristian history, the machinery of illusionism, the Kabbalah, the planets and the biology of animals and plants. His museum in Rome was among the most famous 'cabinets of curiosities', visited by everybody in the intellectual world. In recent years the study of this fascinating man and his works has become an industry. But while every other aspect of Kircher's thought has been exhaustively analysed, his prolific illustrations have been left largely unexplained. Kircher had an extraordinary imagination, comparable to the most avant-garde modern artist, even (or often especially) when he was wrong. The present book fills that gap. With over 400 illustrations, each with a detailed commentary, it proves how much more we still have to leam from this eccentric genius. Joscelyn Godwin's unrivalled mastery of his subject gives a sure underpinning to the presentation of hundreds of engravings through which Kircher prepared his ideas and through which we can see the mind of one of the most memorable thinkers who has ever lived." - from the dj.
