263 KURELEK, William ARNOLD, Abraham KURELEK, William Jewish Life in Canada. : Paintings & Commentaries by William Kurelek. A Historical Essay by Abraham Arnold. First Edition, First Printing in dustjacket
Hurtig Publishers, Edmonton , 1976, 1976 0888301073 / 9780888301079 
KURELEK, William and Abraham ARNOLD. Jewish Life in Canada : Paintings & Commentaries by William Kurelek. A Historical Essay by Abraham Arnold. Edmonton : Hurtig Publishers, 1976. First Edition, First Printing. Pp (6),7-91,(5). Oblong 8vo, mid-blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

William Kurelek, CM (b. March 3, 1927, Whitford, Alberta – d. November 3, 1977, Toronto) was a Canadian artist and writer.

Abraham J. Arnold, C.M., LL.D. (b.1923, Montreal - d. January 28, 2011, Winnipeg, Manitoba) historian and Jewish leader.

"One of the first Jews to set foot in Canada was a female, Esther Brandeau. Disguises as a boy, she arrived in Quebec in September of 1738 on the ship Saint Michael. After officials discovered her true identity and further discovered that she would not convert from Judaism to Catholicism, they promptly shipped her back to France. From this inhospitable beginning, Canadian Jews have grown to a population of two hundred and seventy-six thousand, a group whose unique contributions to Canada, both as a people and individually, are firmly acknowledged. Their remarkable story has found worthy expression in this collaboration between the artist, William Kurelek, and the historian, Abraham Arnold.

William Kurelek has rightly become one of Canada's most well loved artists and the paintings in this book are among his very finest. From the newly arrived immigrants waiting silently on a lonely Saskatchewan station platform, to the quiet expectancy of a family's Sabbath table; from the serenity of the day's routine on a Jewish dairy farm, to the hustle and bustle of Morosnick's market in Winnipeg, Kurelek, himself a non-Jew, gives us a visible and touching link with the Jewish heritage in Canada in these unforgettable paintings. His commentaries for each of the sixteen paintings in the series tell of the inspiration for and his special relationship to each subject.

Abraham Arnold's deft and lively essay on Jewish life in Canada provides the historic basis of the book. He focusses.on the continuation of the Jewish community in light of the European experience and its development in Canadian society. Arnold explores the myth of the 'jew pedlar'; the evolution of organized Jewish community life in all the major centres; the movements within Judaism from Orthodox to Reform and Conservative; the rabbi; the rise of Talmud Torahs and Peretz Schools; Canadian Jews and ZZionism; the government's closed-door policy to the desperate Jews of Nazi Germany.

Jewish Life in Canada is a remarkable story and a fine collaboration between artist and historian." - from the dj.

(LAURENCE, Margaret) Donez XIQUES. Margaret Laurence : The Making of a Writer. Toronto : Dundurn Press, (2005). First Pritning. Pp. (8),[9]-408, + 8 pages of b&w plates. Illustrated. 8vo, black cloth with silver lettering to spine. Dona Xiques (b. April 30, 1936, Staten Island, New York). The authorresides regularly in Nova Scotia. "'Margaret Laurence: The Making of a Wri ter' is an engaging narrative that contains new and important findings about Laurence's life and career. THis biography reveals the challenges, successes, and failures of the long apprenticeship that preceded the publication of 'The Stone Angel', Laurence's first commercially successful novel. DonezXiques demonstrates the importance of Margaret Laurence's early work as a journalist in her development as a writer and covers her return to Canada from Africa in the late 1950s. She details the significance of Laurence's 'Vancouver years' as well as the challenges of her year in London prior to settling at Elm Cottage in Buckinghamshire, when Laurence stood on the verge of success. The Margaret Laurence known to most people is a public figure of the 1960s and 1970s: matriarchal, matronly, and accomplished. The story of her early years in the harsh setting of the Canadian Prairies during the 1930s -- years of drought and the Great Depression -- and of her African years has never before been chronicled with the thoroughness and vividness that Xiques provides for the reader. Appended to this powerful new biography is a short story by Margaret Laurence that has never before been published and two other stories that have not been widely available. They indicate the range of her concerns and show a marked departure from her fiction in 'The Tomorrow-Tamer and Other Stories' and 'A Bird in the House'. Readers willbenefit from the extensive research in this full and vibrant portrait of o ne of the most revered writers of twentieth-century Canadian literature." -from the dustjacket. Contents: 1.

"A Queen in Thebes". WIth notes, selected bibliography, and index. Very good in crisp dustjacket. Signed, without inscription, by Xiques. 35.00

Goose Lane, Fredericton, 2008, ISBN:9780864925046 
LEROUX, John. Building New Brunswick : An Architectural History. With essays by Robert M. Leavitt, Stuart Smith, Gary Hughes. (Fredericton, New Brunswick) : Goose Lane, (2008). First Printing. "Printed in May 2008 by FriesensPrinting, in Altona, Manitoba in a print run of 2,500 copies". Pp (8),9-31 0,(2). Double column. Profusely Illustrated throughout, mostly in colour. Index. Tall large 8vo, photo-illustrated cardcovers, French flaps. John Leroux (b. 1970, Fredericton). "New Brunswick's architecture has traditionally exhibited excellence in craftsmanship, faithfulness to materials and harmony with the environment. Building New Brunswick examines the built heritage of the province, from pre-history until today - from the humblest dwelling to the grandest public edifice. Archaeology, the transmission of craft through the centuries and historical records tell stories about the lost dwellings of the First Nations and the destroyed farms and forts of the early Acadians. After the arrival of the Loyalists in the 1780s, many architectural styles flourished. With superb building skills, easy access to the world's best materials and the wealth generated by shipping and the lumber trade, New Brunswick saw the construction of Gothic Revival churches, elaborate factories and railway stations, vigorous streetscapes, rows of mansions and graceful farms. By the early years of the twentieth century, a tentative Modernism had emerged, and between the two world wars, architectural styles were torn between tradition and a wider international movement. In this expansive volume, Leroux also documents more adventurous takes on modern space and aesthetics, found particularly in churches constructed from the late 1940s to early 1970s and in the expressive spaces of the Modern Movement. He observes that structures such as the initial Université de Moncton buildings,the Hugh John Flemming Bridge in Hartland, and the Centennial Building in Fredericton will be increasingly valued as central to New Brunswick's heritage. By the late twentieth century, the province began to witness surprising interpretations of Postmodernist, Neotraditionalist, Contemporary and Green architecture, marking a renewed enthusiasm for celebrating form." (from the front flap). Contents : Introduction: Hope Restored; 1. New Brunswick'sFirst Architects (by Robert M. Leavitt); 2. France's New Frontier, 1604-17 60 (by John Leroux); 3. Natives of America, 1760-1840 (by Stuart Smith) ; 4. The Golden years, 1840-1914 (by Gary Hughes); 5. The Great Wars and the Great Depression, 1914-1945 (by John Leroux); 6.
