"Most of the troops were delivered to that part of Canada which was nearest the war, Halifax. When we arrived there we tried to make believe that it would be just like thesummer training period we enjoyed the years before. When we would play at mock warfare and feel very courageous about it all knowing that it was all pretence. Where the hero could lie down dead and rise again to fight another day. Or meet the gang in the little red school house for a beer that night. But now, the minute that you stepped off that train, you realized, or atleast thought you did, that here was a far different Halifax! This was the real thing. Now the government was going to get its money back and prove t he worth of all that pre-war training." - pp.100-101. "Question: 'What happened to Henry Hudson?' "Answer: 'He was marooned with disgrace from the Royal Canadian Navy. One dark Saturday, at eleven o'clock he was put ashore atHalifax clothed only in a duck suit. Then he was left on Barrington Street with only a tin of spam, a water bottle and a service revolver with one ro und of ball ammunition.'" from a series of very silly officer-seaman interrogations. - p.259. "Eight o'clock found me at the North West entrance of the Public Gardens. A beautiful landscaped park of winding paths and fragrantflowers, in the heart of downtown Halifax. There is a fair sized pond situ ated in these lovely ground [sic] and, floating upon the pond are little model ships. They seem to portray an established fact that the people of Halifax are, first and foremost, sea minded." - p.227. The as yet unwritten book:The Care and Feeding of Naval Rabbits, p.158. "The sailor that you see rolling down the street is not all rum and tabacco [sic] and tattoo marks as you might have been led to believe. He may have exchanged his memories of Kant with another who has studied Freud or Voltaire." - p.161-2. "All the illustrsations appearing in the book and jacket design, were accomplished by Pete Younger, who,since the printing of the first edition, has rejoined theRCN and at present is instructing New Entries at Cornwallis. During the wa r Younger could have accepted a posh number ashore doing art work for the government but he elected to remain at sea where he saw considerable serviceon the North Atlantic, Mediterranean and 'D' Day operations in France. Man y will remember his work of art on the gun shield of HMCS Moosejaw, depicting a roaring moose chasing Hitler who looks anxiously over his shoulder at the moose who has a section of Hitler's pants in his moutn and a 'U' boat draped in his antlers. What the author has failed to put in printing, the artist has done it with his clever pen." - from the rear panel of the dust jacket. Name stencilled in ink to ffep, faint soiling to boards, else very good in rubbed, chipped dust jacket. 95.00

Following the outbreak of war in September 1939, his first ship appointment was to HMCS St. Laurent which formed part of the escort for the initial UK bound Convoy, HXI, which sailed from Halifax on the 15th September. Having transferred to the Regular Force and following three years of training ashore and afloat in the Royal Navy, he returned to serve in ten more ships, either as a specialist in Navigation and Aircraft Control or in Command.

Dr. Peter Charlebois (b. 1928 - d. May 29, 2013, Scarborough, Ontario).

"The first book to deal comprehensively with those thrashing, puffing monsters of yesteryear. The smell of the smoke, the slapping of the paddles on the water, the shrilling of the steam whistle as the boat comes in to dock, in towns large and small, all across Canada.

The steam engines in paddlewheel boats developed along two lines: the horizontally inclined engine drove the sternwheeler (which had the paddlewheel at the back) and the vertical walking-beam engine drove the sidewheelers. These boats were designed to operate without difficulty in 18 to 24 inches of water. They were the only large craft which could be used commercially in shallow or narrow rivers or in poor harbours.

Paddlewheelers range from locally built crude boats, such as those on the Athabaska, to the opulent pleasure palaces that plied the St. Lawrence and the Great Lakes.

Gabriel Dumont's barn boards were used to arm the Northcote which fought and lost Canada's first naval battle in the middle of the prairies in the uprising of 1885. The Beaver, belonging to the Hudson's Bay Company, hugged the B.C. coast, picking up furs from the native peoples. The Waubono sank without a trace in Georgian Bay after a bride dreamed of her husband's death by drowning. " - from the rear cover.

Arranged in six sections :
The Atlantic Provmces

The Ottawa
The Great Lakes

210 CHOYCE, Lesley Coasts of Canada : A History. First Edition in dustjacket
Goose Lane Editions, Fredericton, NB, 2002, ISBN:0864923600 
CHOYCE, Lesley. The Coasts of Canada : A History. (Fredericton, NB): Goose Lane Editions, (2002). First Printing. Pp. 308. 8vo, blue cloth. The lives of those who live on the east and west coasts of Canada are invariably intertwined with the sea. This is the story of the civilizations that sprung upon the coasts of Canada, and the men and women who worked (and still do) o n the sea. "As benevolent as it is brutal, the sea has controlled Canada’s history and shaped our collective identity. The Coasts of Canada tells the stories of our east, west, and north coastlines, from the earliest human habitation until today. A coast-dweller himself, Lesley Choyce is fascinated by the legendary men of the sea, but his sympathy lies with the men and women whose everyday lives are governed by the country’s oceans. Brimming withheroes and villains, shipwrecks and rescues, roguery and virtue, and stori es of overcoming unimaginable odds, The Coasts of Canada is idiosyncratic, eclectic, and iconoclastic. It’s a book of discoveries, a record of misdeeds and misjudgements, and a pleas to preserve the good things of the sea, the shore, and the coastal communities.". Very good in dj. 25.00

"We Stand on Guard is the first comprehensive collection of the songs, poems, and verses of Canadians in battle. It brings together famous poems (like "In Flanders Fields"), well-loved songs (like "Mademoiselle from Armentières"), and previously unpublished verses (like "The FenianBlood-Hounds") to dramatize the history of Canada, conflict by conflict. O ver three hundred years of martial experience are covered, from the early Indian battles through rebellions and insurrections to the two World Wars (and even World War III). Many of the contributors are poets as well known asEarle Birney, Robert W. Service, Maor Charles G.D. Roberts, Al Purdy, Alde n Nowlan, and Raymond Souster; others are soldier-poets unknown to literaryhistory who put into words the meaning of heroism and human suffering. We Stand on Guard was compiled by John Robert Colombo and Michael Richardson who explain in their Introduction that far from being a glorification of warfare, this anthology is a tribute to the spirit of man and the love of freedom. The same note is sounded in the Foreword, which was contributed by Richard Rohmer." (from the dj'). Very good in dustjacket. 20.00
