William Hoffer, Vancouver, 1984, ISBN:091975807x

A beautifully printed catalogue of British Columbian literary paper-works. "This catalogue and description of a small but representative part of the whole body of literary publishing in British Columbia, brought together by Robert Bringhurst in spite of the dangers which lurk in unknown continents, in a country which does not possess even rudimentary bibliographies of its own movements and presses, and which forgets more quickly than it learns, will be important oneday." - from the notoriously curmudgeonly Hoffer's prefatory note. Very go od. Signed without inscription by Bringhurst on the half-title leaf. 40.00

82 BRITTAIN, Frederick Oar, Scull and Rudder : A Bibliography of Rowing
Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press, London, 1930, 
BRITTAIN, Frederick, (comp.). Oar, Scull and Rudder : A Bibliography of Rowing. With a preface by Steve Fairbairn. London : Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press, 1930. First Edition. Pp (4),[v]-xii,[1]-112. Small 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Howard-Hill, Bibliography of British Literary Bibliographies, 2nd ed. 2276f. "The first part, whicn is limited to descriptions of books and pamphlets published independently, contains about240 items. Nearly all of these are devoted entirely to rowing, or to rowin g and closely allied sports. Excluding the few which are concerned only in a minor degree with rowing, 140 of the books and pamphlets are in English (including 5 published in British colonies and 17 in the United States), 48 in German, 15 in French (including 1 published in Belgium), 7 in Norwegian,7 in Dutch (including 1 published in Belgium), 5 in Italian, 2 in Swedish, 2 in Danish, and 1 each in Russian, Polish, and Spanish. The second part, which is limited to articles on rowing published in periodicals and encyclopaedias, contains about 700 items. Those included under each year are further arranged in alphabetical order of the periodicals in which they appear. I have frequently given a summary of the contents of an article instead of an exact reproduction of a vague title. The compilation of this part was particularly difficult in the later years, owing to the fact that some important periodicals have long since abandoned the publication of an annual index, so that 1 have often had to examine every number in order to pick out articles on rowing." - p.[ix]. Part I. Independent Works: (a). Before the general adoption of sliding seats in 1873; (b). From the general adoption of sliding seats in 1873 to the end of the nineteenth century; (c). The twentieth century. Part II. Articles in Periodicals: (a). Before the general adoption of sliding seats in 1873; (b). From the invention of sliding seats to the end of the nineteenth century; (c). The twentieth century. With an index. "The story has not been without its controversies, in whicn I have taken my full share; but this book is impartial and attempts to give references to all the literature of the subject. I think therefore that many old oarsmen will want to possess this book, to refer themselves to a literature whichwill tell them how, in these hundred years, the art has been built up, and perhaps to remind them of their own contests and triumphs." - from the pre face. Brittain provides many useful annotations, particularly in Part I. Light wear to cloth and spine ends, else very good. Scarce. 175.00
