Illustrated. 4to, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "The post-Expo era of Canadian architecture has produced works of international importance which have been recognized in European, Japanese and American periodicals. With almost 200 illustrations and a text written for the enquiring general reader, the authors have selected and presented what they judge to be the most significant projects from this rich and continuing period of Canadian Architecture. Through an examination of the National Gallery competition of 1976-77, the authors identify the mainstream concerns of Canadian architecture. Then, concentrating on major cities from coast to coast, they look at projects embodying alternative movements that are suggestive of possible future directions, projects such as: Corridart in Montreal; Robson Square in Vancouver; the Pavilion '70 ski chalet in St. Sauveur, Quebec; Toronto's Eaton Centre; Winnipeg's St . BonifaceCathedral; the Plus 15 system in Calgary; Edmonton's Citadel Theatre; and Halifax's waterfront restoration." - from dj flap. Chapters : 1. Terre des Hommes - Expo '67, Montreal; 2.

51 BONDRUP-NIELSEN, Soren. Sound Like Water Dripping : In Search of the Boreal Owl. First Edition, Paperback.
Gaspereau Press, Kentville, NS, 2009, ISBN:9781554470747 
BONDRUP-NIELSEN, Soren. A Sound Like Water Dripping : In Search of the Boreal Owl . Kentville, NS: Gaspereau Press, 2009. First Printing. Pp. (10),11-236,(4). Illustrated in black and white. 8vo, decorated black card covers in white jacket. "In the spring of 1974, Soren Bondrup-Nielsen, a graduate student in biology, travelled to the boreal forest of northern Ontario in search of the tiny, elusive Boreal Owl. His supervisor had made a well-intended attempt to persuade him that there were easier ways to earn a degree than by searching for the proverbial needle in a haystack, but Bondrup-Nielsen's youthful enthusiasm would not be dampened. In subsequent field seasons in Ontario adn Alberta, Bondrup-Nielsen recorded and photographed Boreal Owls, studying their diet, habitat and courtship. His efforts resulted in the first nesting record for the species in Ontario. This book recounts the author's youthful adventures living in tents, cabins and bunkhouses and travelling by snowshoe, ski and bicycle, following his quest into the boreal heartland. While his research and methodology provde the framework, the story'strue focus lies in the author's sylvan encounters -- with birds, trees, vo les, coyotes, bears, moose, birders, loggers, tree planters -- and the jubilation of first love and self-discovery. Bondrup-Nielsen reminds usof the importance of curiosity, passion and persistence in the study of ornithologyand ecology." - from the front flap. Very good. 20.00

BOYD, Hugh. New Breaking : An Outline of Co-Operation Among the Farmers of Western Canada. Toronto & Vancouver : J. M. Dent & Sons (Canada) Limited, (March 1938). First Edition. Pp (10),11-215,(1), frontispiece + 12 leaves ofplates Jacket design by Rowland Trevor. Printed by the Hugh Heaton Printin g House, Limited. Hugh Ross Cameron Boyd (b. 24 Jul 1900 in Ashgrove, Inverness, Scotland - d. 14 Dec 1964 in Edmonton, Alberta). Peel 6157. Not in Watters. "• The author presents in this book an up-to-date and stimulating account of the long and well-sustained farmer struggle for the most satisfactory co-operative method of marketing our wheat and other farm produce. Thiis is coupled with the story of securing appropriate legislation and amendments, designed to protect the producer from the abuses and practices more orless inherent in the warehousing, transporting and handling of grain. • Th e principle of co-operation is amongst the most important of the great forces which are striving for the shaping of our civilization to-day. As a principle it is opposed to the idea ot the "survival of the fittest." Even whenthe system which glorified competition was in its heydey, many men and wom en turned in self-protection to another way of living, and in the mid-nineteenth century laid the foundations of a social and economic order m which co-operation was to be dominant. Everybody who is interested in this aspect of the ever-widening co-operative movement, will find "New Breaking" stimulating reading. • The story of the organised rural activities dating back tosmall beginnings at the turn of the century, are here set forth in consecu tive order, and in a manner designed to be fair and just to all parties concerned. Mr. Boyd has written an interesting, informative and readable book.• An appreciative Foreword is contributed by the Hon. W. R. Motherwell. " - from the dj.
