47 ARCHIBALD, Samuel. WINKLER, Donald, trans. Biblioasis International Translation series. Arvida. Stories. Signed Paperback.
Biblioasis, Windsor, Ontario, 2015, ISBN:9781771960427 
ARCHIBALD, Samuel. Arvida. Stories. Translated from the French by Donald Winkler. Windsor, Ontario : Biblioasis, (2015). Second Printing. Pp. (8),9-213,(3). 8vo, art-illustrated black card covers with grey lettering to front cover and spine. A volume in the Biblioasis International Translation series. General editor: Stephen Henighan. Shortlisted for the 2015 Scotiabank Giller Prize. "Like a Proust-obsessed Cormac McCarthy, Samuel Archibald's portrait of his hometown is filled with innocent children and wild beasts, attempted murder and ritual mutilation, haunted houses and road trips to nowhere, bad men and mysterious women. Gothic, fantastical, and incandescent, filled with stories of everyday wonder and terror, longing and love, 'Arvida'explores the line which separates memory from story, and heralds the arriv al of an important new voice." - from the rear cover. Includes the following stories: "My Father and Proust [Arvida I]", "Antigonish", "Cryptozoology", "In the Midst of the Spiders", "America", "In the Fields of the Lord [Blood Sisters I]", "A Mirror in the Mirror", "The Animal [Blood Sisters II]", "Jigai", "Paris in the Rain [Blood Sisters III]", "The Centre of Leisure and Forgetfulness [Arvida II]", "The Last-Born", "House-Bound", and "Madeleines [Arvida III]". Very good. Signed by the author on the half-title page. 20.00

48 ARENDT, Hannah. On Revolution. First Edition in dustjacket.
Faber and Faber, London, 1963, 
ARENDT, Hannah. On Revolution. London : Faber and Faber, (1963). First Printing. Pp. (8),1-343,(1). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering and gilt border to spine. Very good in very lightly spine-sunned, unclipped dustjacket. A very nice, tidy copy. 60.00 "If, as we all hope and as Dr Arendt believes, major warfare is a thing of the past, this century will nevertheless continue to be a century of revolutions. in the contest that divides the world today, in which so much is at stake, those will probably win who understandrevolution, while those who still put their faith in war as the last resor t of foreign policy will find themselves masters of an obsolete trade. Revolution is among the most recent of all major political phenomena. To analyse and interpret its meaning Dr Arendt turns back to the first great examples: the American and the French. How was it possible for the first to accomplish its objectives under the control and guidance of the men who started it, while the second foundered in impotence and terror so that the onlookerscame to believe that revolution must of necessity devoir its own children? What basic difference bewteen the two made the French Revolution, wit its emphasis on historical necessity, the apparently inescapable model for later revolutions in Russia and China? What has happened to the ideal of freedom as the end and justification of revolution. With her characteristic originality and brilliance of analysis, Dr Arendt traces back to their ebginnigns the principles that underlie these great events, principles that contain the answers to these questions and throw light upon the present and the future. Finally, she advances a daring proposal for restoring the revolutionary virtues and eliminating the evils of mass society -- a means of reconciling equality with authority and of restoring public happiness and public freedom to the people." - from the dustjacket. Contents: Introduction: War andRevolution; 1. The Meaning of Revoluition; 2. The Social Question; 3. The Pursuit of Happiness; 4. Foundation I: Constitutio Libertatis; 5. Foundation II: Novus Ordo Saeclorum; 6. The Revolutionary Tradition and Its Lost Treasure. With bibliography and index.

52 ARMSTRONG, Tammy Scare in the Crow.
Goose Lane, Fredericton, N.B., 2010, ISBN:9780864926272 
ARMSTRONG, Tammy. The Scare in the Crow. (Fredericton, N.B.) : Goose Lane, (2010). First Printing. Pp [1]-110,(2). 8vo, illustrated pale green card covers. A book of poetry. "The Scare in the Crow races across the back roads like a muscle car making a beer run. Then it pauses, in haunting contemplation of a walk through the woods. Armstrong's poems inhabit the fantasia of this world - in the peculiarities of taxidermy, crowds watching a house wash away in a spring flood, old tombstones cast over a riverbank, or rumours of a sighting of the extinct eastern panther. Gothic shadows of dead friends and strangers inhabit the lost cause of failing farms and industries, eroding communities, children dispersed, the names of distant cousins slippingthrough loose fingers. With blistering wit, Armstrong invites us to laugh at the zaniness of life. From moments of melancholy emerges an unflinching gaze at people who cling to life and livelihood the only way they know how.And always she senses the pulse of the natural world - beautiful, transfor mative, and populated with the perceptions of animal minds." - from the back cover. Tammy Armstrong grew up in the border town of St. Stephen, New Brunswick, and now lives in Fredericton. Very good. 10.00
