41 ALLEN-GRAY, Dorothy. Fare Exchange : A collection of traditional recipes from many countries.
Kingswood House in association with Faber and Faber Limited, 1963, 
ALLEN-GRAY, Dorothy. Fare Exchange : A collection of traditional recipes from many countries. With line illustrations by Pamela Freeman. Photography by Don Swanson. N.pl.: Kingswood House in association with Faber and Faber Limited, (1963). Pp [1]-[776], colour frontis + 7 colour plates. Index. 8vo,blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “When Dorothy Allen-Gray began, years ago, to assemble this huge treasury of recipes of the world, she set her h eart against compiling an 'anthology of anthologies' and resolved to consult the older members of Canada's many ethnic groups, then to try out their recipes in their homes and her own. She is an utterly dedicated cook as wellas being a writer on kitchen topics and a determined traveller. In her rov ing around Canada she has sought out the older folk, welcoming the garrulous, long-memoried matriarchs from ancient villages and communities as fervently as she has encouraged those who can recall the culinary sophisticationsof the capital cities from which they are permanently exiled. The result i s a completely practical cook-book to last any housewife for a life-time. Tiring (incredibly) of the wide range of Central European dumplings or dainties, she has only to glance at the index and turn to Caucasian or Chinese counterparts, Yugoslav 'Kledanle', Canadian blueberry pie, Mexican flat cakes, Italian sauté fennel, with hundreds upon hundreds of well-remembered flavoury, savoury national specialities ranging from hay-makers' Held-snacks to highlights of wedding banquets, are here meticulously described, and all the many chapters are introduced by conclusions drawn over the years of collecting. While paying due respect to the elbow-grease necessary in old-timesmoky-raftered kitchens, the author smiles upon its mechanical replacement s. "I shall be happy," she writes, "if this book restores to the present generation part of the lore which is theirs by birthright." - from the dj. Dorothy Allen-Gray has been interested in recipes and cooking since her childhood in New Brunswick. ADDITIONAL SHIPPING CHARGES WILL BE REQUIRED DUE TO ITS WEIGHT. Very good in dustjacket. 50.00

AMYOT, Chantal, Bianca GENDREAU, and John WILLIS. Special Delivery : Canada's Postal History. Edited by Francine Brousseau. Principal photography by Claire Dufour. [Preface by The Honourable André Ouellet]. (Fredericton, New Brunswick and Hull) : Goose Lane Editions, Canadian Museum of Civilization - Canadian Postal Museum, (2000). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xi,(1),13-150,(2). Illustrated in colour. Folio, black paper-covered boards with gilt lettering to front and spine.

"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.

Toy 4368. "Here is an introd uction to the fast sport of ice sailing. [...] First-trippers in an iceboaton a windy day cannot believe their sense as they face the chill wind and clutch the cockpit on a 60-mile-an-hour ride without motor power. Ice sailing is more than this, though, particularly for the competitively minded person. The combination of skills required to sail expertly cannot be acquiredquickly. Developing the nuances in getting upwind and downwind several tim es faster than the wind speed itself is a challenge. When the wind is strong, the elements of the sailor's courage and the breaking point of his equipment are in fine balance. An iceboat is said to go its fastest just before it falls apart! [...] 'Sailing on Ice' is packed with information on safety, dress, racing, and clubs, as well as step-by-step sailing instructions. Each part of the iceboat is explained and given purpose." - from the dustjacket.
