Breed Apart : Nova Scotia's Duck Tolling Retriever. First Edition in dustjacket, MacMILLAN, Gail
214 MacMILLAN, Gail Breed Apart : Nova Scotia's Duck Tolling Retriever. First Edition in dustjacket
Nimbus Publishing Ltd., Halifax, 1998, ISBN:155109231x 1998 155109231X / 9781551092317 
MacMILLAN, Gail. A Breed Apart : Nova Scotia's Duck Tolling Retriever. (Halifax, NS) : Nimbus Publishing Ltd., (1998). First Edition. Pp. (1)-108. Illustrated with many photos and other illustrations. Double column. Square 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine.

"One of nature's many intriguing secrets is why usually skittish ducks are mysteriously attracted by the sight of a small reddish animal prancing or frolicking on the shore. Be it wily fox or 'tolling' dog, water-fowl pay dearly for this fatal attraction.

The practice of luring game to shore with the use of small animals dates back to antiquity. But only the Nova Scotia bred retrievers perform the added useful service of fetching the prize for their masters from lakes and marshes.

This is the story of the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever and the men and women who bred them, trained them and brought them to such prominence that they are now Nova Scotia's official dog. During the process, these intelligent foxlike dogs, with their red coats and distinctive white markings, have found a place in the hearts of hundreds of owners in Canada and the U.S. as both sporting dog and family pet and are enthusiastically becoming favourites at trials and shows." - from the dust jacket.

218 MALSTER, Robert FORSYTHE, J.A., Major. Wherries and Waterways : The Story of the Norfolk and Suffolk Wherry and the Waterways on which it Sailed. First Edition in dustjacket
Terence Dalton, Lavenham, Suffolk, 1971, 
MALSTER, Robert. Wherries and Waterways : The Story of the Norfolk and Suffolk Wherry and the Waterways on which it Sailed. Foreword by Major J.A. Forsythe. Lavenham, Suffolk: Terence Dalton, 1971. First Edition. Pp 176. Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth. Toy 4575. "Until the building of the railways, and indeed for about half a century after the coming of the first lines to East Anglia, a fleet of river craft carried a wide variety of cargoes on the rivers of East Norfolk and Suffolk. To-day only the Albion, which has been saved and refitted through the efforts of the Norfolk Wherry Trust, is to be seen under sail. There is little left to indicate the value and importance of the wherry during earlier times when the economy of the region was, toa great extent,dependent on water transport. The wherry not only carried t he manufactures of Norwich to the port of Yarmouth for export all over the world and returned with coal for the city's hearths, it also played an essential part in the agricultural economy of the area, carrying manure and marl on which the farms were so dependent. Robert Malster has traced the history of this once famous cargo and passenger vessel, its predecessor the Norfolk keel and the waterways upon which they sailed. Construction, builders, cargoes, watermen, regattas, unlawful occasions and a host of other things also have their rightful place in this fascinating story. The great number of photographs and illustrations which run through the story add an essential visual touch and many of them have not been published before." ." -from the dj.
