Dundurn Press, Toronto & Oxford, 1992, ISBN:1550021842 
ALLEN, Robert S. His Majesty's Indian Allies : British Indian Policy in TheDefence of Canada, 1774-1815. Toronto & Oxford : Dundurn Press, 1992. Firs t Paperback Printing. Pp. (6),7-294,(2), including plates. Illustrated. 8vo, art illustrated green card covers with white lettering to front cover andspine. "Today the First Nations are demanding a new recognition of their p lace in Canada. For them this demand is a renewal of the historical relationship between themselves and the European newcomers, based on mutual respect and a separate but equal status in which neither side would interfere wihthe integrity of the other's culture, language, law, or religious and poli tical systems. 'His Majesty's Indian Allies' is a study of the roots of this relationship and an examination of British Indian policy in North Americafrom the time of the American Revolution to the end of the War of 1812, wi th particular focus on Canada. Remarkably little recognition has been givenot the vital military role of native people in the defence of Canada. More precisely, the long relationship between native people and thje crown in C anada, based on formal alliances, was instrumental in preserving and protecting the integrity of the territories that became Canada. The cohesive vehicle for implementing policy directives was the British Indian Department, the forerunner of the present Department of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada. Although plagued by a continuous struggle over land issues and native sovereignty, an enduring and symbiotic relationship evolved between the native people and the British Crown in Canada that was rooted in the mutual need and desire for protection and survival. In his conclusion, Allen argues that the historic chain of friendship between native people and the crown has been recast, but not particularly altered, in the contemporary world of government-native relations. In detailing and assessing these military alliances during the formative and critical years in the development of the nations in North America, Robert Allen has brought refreshing new insights intothe field of native history." - from rear.

48 ALVORD, Douglas On The Water : The Romance and Lore of America's Small Boats.. First Edition in dustjacket
Yankee Books, Dublin, New Hampshire , 1988, ISBN:0899091571 
ALVORD, Douglas. On The Water : The Romance and Lore of America's Small Boats. Text and illustrations by Douglas Alvord. Dublin, New Hampshire : Yankee Books, (1988). First Edition. Pp (6),[7]-160. Oblong 8vo, brown cloth spine, brown paper-covered boards, with dark blue lettering to spine. Brice Douglas Alvord, (b. December 11, 1946, Portland Maine). "Small boats have always been an essential part of American life, but their social, historical, and cultural significance all too often has been overlooked. On the Water pays tribute to these boats and to their designers and builders. The book focuses on some of the watercraft that were introduced or are indigenous to America's eastern coast and waterways, and explores their history and evolution. Such traditional craft as the Grand Banks dory, the Adirondack guide boat, and the New Haven sharpie, as well as various styles of canoes, dinghies, and sloops, are described and depicted in finely detailed black-and-white drawings and beautiful full-color paintings. Beginning with an illustrated explanation of the basics of small boat design and construction, On the Water takes the reader inside the boat shops where history is built every day. Master boatbuilders share their thoughts and feelings about their trade, showing work in progress on re-creations of classic styles, or new designs inspired by traditional craft. "Necessity has been the commissioner of boat desgns, and specific local conditions and available materials the developer," writes Alvord. "Consequently, the seawortny Maine lobster boat has spawned many small power boats; the Chesapeake skipjack has inspired more than one fast pleasure boat; and both the eighteenth-century peapod and the canoe have influenced contemporary rowing oats. Most of these boats were developed hundreds of miles from each other, and the skills and designs were passed on largely by word of mouth, yet there is a common theme that seems tohave influenced boat design for centuries. Common sense and experience are the best teachers. Workbpats might be expected to be purely utilitarian, a nd their construction for the most part is straightorward and practical. But out of that simplicity often comes a sweet sense of beauty." The beauty that is a boat comes acoss to mariners and landspeople aiike in On the Water. Those interested in Americana also will appreciate the introduction to anart form that is as mucn a part of our country as are barns, folk crafts, and white-steepled churches." (rom the dj.

AMBASZ, Emilio (ed.). Italy : The New Domestic Landscape : Achievements andProblems of Italian Design. New York : The Museum of Modern Art, in collab oration with Centro Di, Florence, (April 1972).

With 520 illustrations (124 in color). 4to, white paper covered boards, black lettering to spine, in a printed glassine dustjacket with fivepieces of cut-out objects illustrative of Italian design inserted into jac ket as issued. "During the last decade, the emergence of Italy as the dominant force in design has had a profound influence in Europe and the Americas. This phenomenon is important not only becasue of the high quality and diversity of the forms produced, but also because it has generated a lively debate on the sociocultural implications of product design, raising questionsof vital concern to designers throughout the world. For many designers, th e aesthetic quality of individual objects intended for private consumption has become irrelevant in the face of such pressing problems as poverty, urban decay, and the pollution of the environment now encountered in all industrialized countries. Consequently, they are increasingly shifting the focusof their attention from the well-designed object to man's total environmen t, seeing the designer's function as one that can mold patterns of behaviorby creating new settings for freeer, mor adaptable life styles. [...] This publication, issued in conjunction with a major exhibition at The Museum o f Modern Art, is the first to deal comprehensively with these challenging developments. Over 150 objects of Italian design of the past ten years have been selceted for the show and all are reproduced in color or black-and-white, as are the dozen environments by well-known Italian designers speciallycommissioned for the occasion."

"Sending and receiving mail lies at the heart of our lives and the history of our vast country. Dymbolized by the letter carrier, the letter, or the stamp, the post is part of our daily life. The postal system has taken part in Canada's great historical moments: in the fur trade, in the construction of the railway, on the abttlefield. It has evolved with the rhythm of explorers' journeys and the transformation of the land into the Canada we know today. The post office stands, literally and figuratively, right in the centre of our villages and cities, and it remains at the centre of our modern communications network.

To celebrate Canada's postal heritage, 'Special Delivery' showcases the jewels in the collection of the Canadian Postal Museum and tells the stories of our rarest and most beautiful stamps. Archival photos bring to life horse-drawn wagons and sleighs, early aircraft and snowmobiles, and remote post offices. Modern photos show the jets and trucks that move today's huge volume of mail.

Throughout the history of Canada's postal system, some things never change. It's the people - the clerks, the sorters, the drivers, the letter carriers, the postmasters - who make the mail go through. The responsibility of delvering the mail and the excitement of receiving it are the same today as they were in the days of sail." - from the dustjacket.

ANDERSON, E.W. The Principles of Navigation. Foreword by D.H. Sadler. London: Hollis & Carter, (1971). Second Impression. Pp. (6),[vii]-xiv,(2),[1]-653,(3). Illustrated. Index and bibliographies. 8vo, blue cloth. Toy 2681. A rigorous overview that considers navigation in the context of new electronic instrumentation. Written for sailors, airmen, and engineers, the text nevertheless honours the antiquity of the art, as its dedication suggests: "Tothe Manx Shearwater that, taken from its nest off the coast of Wales and c arried three thousand miles across the Atlantic to Boston, was back in twelve days." Light spotting and dustiness to top- and fore-edges, faint soiling to rear endpapers, else very good in price-clipped dustjacket. 35.00
