82 BRYHER ELLERMAN, Winifred Coin of Carthage. First British Edition in dustjacket.
Collins, London, 1964, 
BRYHER (ELLERMAN, Winifred). The Coin of Carthage. London : Collins, (1963). First UK Edition. Pp (8), 9-[256]. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Bryher, so often praised for her extraordinary skill in recapturing past periods of crisis, has taken the Second Punic War as the background for her new novel. Through the fate of two Greek traders (and a donkey) she evokes the great struggle between Hannibal and ancient Rome. " It was a familiar story. The armies plundered, the farmers died, merchants starved, nobodysowed the field." Zonas and Dasius belong to the Greek settlements on the Italian coast and their allegiance to Rome is tenuous. When Hannibal's brilliant campaign carries the Carthaginian troops into Southern Italy the traders have no compunction in seeking out the enemy who, far from their nativebases, pay well for leather and oil. But both men are compelled by more th an gain. Adventure, the call of the road, the lure of the golden sands of Africa are temptations towards unknown territory among alien, unryustworthy people and shadowy dangers; they are also invitations to life—and death. Delicately and with unusual insight, Bryher records the dying of the cities of the vanquished and the subtle, corroding change that accompanies he fall from power. The Coin of Carthage is history and allegory, the resent in thepast." (from the dj). Bryher (b. September 2, 1894, Margate, England – d. January 28, 1983, Vevey, Switzerland) was the pen name of the English novelist, poet, memoirist, and magazine editor Annie Winifred Ellerman, of the Ellerman ship-owning family. She was a major figure of the international setin Paris in the 1920s, using her fortune to help many struggling writers. With her lesbian lover Hilda Doolittle (H.D.) and Scottish writer Kenneth Macpherson, she launched the film magazine Close Up, which introduced SergeiEisenstein’s work to British viewers. From her home in Switzerland, she he lped to evacuate Jews from Hitler’s Germany, and then became a popular historical novelist.

83 BRYHER ELLERMAN, Winifred Gate to the Sea. First American Edition in dustjacket.
Random House, New York, 1958, 
BRYHER (ELLERMAN, Winifred). Gate to the Sea. New York : Random House, (1958). First US Edition. Pp. (12),9-[119],(5) + 4 leaves witha b&w photo each.8vo, white cloth spine with blue paper-covered boards, grey lettering to s pine. "Thc graying ruins of the columned temples of Paestum are the scene of this volume in Brryher's series of significant moments in history when mankind has faced the dissolution of an epoch. Deserted now except for the tourists to Italy, Paestum becomes dramatically alive again through the pen of one of the distinguished novelis of today. With gentleness and compassion, Bryher tells the moving story of Harmonia, the priestess and guardian of the Poseidonian relics, as she faces the increasing power of the Lucanian conquerors and the disintegration of her people. "The Gate to the Sea is always the way to freedom." Throughout this evocative presentation of the haunted landscape of the fourth century B.C., the arched Gate stands as a symbol of hone for the future as well as the memory of a past when the Poseidonian colonists had been free and the famous roses had blossomed gaily in the courtyards of their walled city. To bring the carved wooden figure of Hera from the tumble-down temple shrine so that it might bless the Poseidonian exile and a new settlement, required courage and devotion in the face of a barbarian enemy and treacherous fellow countrymen. Bryher's narration of therenewol of the spirit under duress is another of the little masterpieces w hich have won her such critical acclaim. Islay deCourcy Lyons' magnificent photographs of present-day Paestum enhance the mood of the story." (from the dj). Bryher (b. September 2, 1894, Margate, England – d.

84 BRYHER ELLERMAN, Winifred Heart to Artemis : A Writer's Memoirs. First American Edition in dustjacket.
Harcourt, Brace & World, New York, 1962, 
BRYHER (ELLERMAN, Winifred). The Heart to Artemis : A Writer's Memoirs. NewYork : Harcourt, Brace & World, (1962). First US Edition. Pp. (6),3-316. 8 vo, orange-brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "The gitted Englishwoman born as Winifred Ellerman and known as Bryher, widely hailed as one of the finest living novelists, has written a very special kind of memoir. "I should like this book to be read neither as mere autobiography nor period piece,but as an attempt to show how external events and unconscious drives help or hinder development." Born in 1894, she has had a life remarkable in contrasts. She was taken to Paris when not quite six, to Italy and Egypt at theage of nine, and put into a strict Enelish boarding school when fourteen. Raised in Victorian restraint and discipline, she was thrown among the Paris expatriates of the twenties. Any creative beginnings drew her passionate interest: she was associated with experimental writing, experimental cinema, and the early days of psychoanalysis. She knew Hemingway and Joyce, Gertrude Stein and Sylvia Beach, Freud and Havelock Ellis, Norman Douglas and the Sitwells. Her greatest challenge came with the Hitler years. From 1934 to1940, from her residence in Switzerland, she devoted all her means and ene rgies to the rescue of retugees, until the war made her return to England. Her book is a record of a remarkable life that has been devoted to literature, the arts, archaeological study, travels, and humanity." (from the dj). Bryher (b.

"On a quietJune morning, Toronto cartographer Claire Barber receives a phone call tel ling her that her sister Rachel, a freelance medical journalist living in New York, seems to have vanished. Last heard from while on assignment in Montreal, Rachel cancelled a trip to visit her six-year-old daughter, who lives with Claire’s middle sister, in Toronto. Among the many fears that haunt Claire as she begins to track Rachel’s whereabouts is that Rachel’s worsening migraines have pushed her beyond her limits. As Claire disrupts her orderly life to follow news of Rachel to Montreal, to Amsterdam, to Italy, and,ultimately, to Las Vegas and Mexico in the company of Rachel’s ex-lover, B rad, she enters a world of neurologists and New Age healers. Struggling with her own headaches, Claire embarks on what becomes an emotional journey, one that brings to the fore her parents’ sudden death eight years earlier. It also reveals the heightening tensions in her relationship with her partner, Stefan, portraying along the way long-held secrets from the past as wellas the uniquely complex and irreplaceable bond between sisters. What Clair e comes to discover will set her life on a new course. Taking place over one summer, but delving back into the past, Claire’s Head provides both a layered, engrossing story and a meditation on how we live with pain and what we will give up to be free of it, written with all the insight, intelligence, and storytelling artistry for which Catherine Bush’s fiction has come to be known. With this, her third novel, she has once again proved herself to be one of Canadian fiction’s most striking and original voices." (from the hardcover dustjacket).

90 CAIROLA, Aldo and Enzo CARLI CARLI, Enzo The Palazzo Pubblico of Siena. First Edition in dustjacket
Monte dei Paschi, Siena, 1964, 1964 
CAIROLA, Aldo and Enzo CARLI. The "Palazzo Pubblico" of Siena. Siena : Monte dei Paschi, (1964). First Edition. Pp. (2),[1]-260,(2). Illustrated. Double column. Illustrated endpapers. Folio [275 x 325 mm], tan cloth with red lettering to front & spine.

"For all its richness, the vast bibliography devoted to Siena lacked a work on the "Palazzo Pubblico" (Town Hall): a book presenting the "history" of the building's architecture and painting; a book both rigorously scientific in construction and yet distinguished by the qualities of "readability" which characterize modern art historical literature.

Aldo Cairola, director of the Civic Museum of Siena, has written the part of this volume dealing with the Town Hall's architectural history, while Enzo Carli, Superintendent of Monuments and Galleries for the Provinces of Siena and Grosseto, is the author of the section on the paintings.

This work is intended not only to fill a gap in the field of Sienese studies, but also — in a panoramic view of authentic discoveries and original perspectives — to put forward a new view of the illustrious edifice and the works which contribute to its fame.

The position of the "Palazzo Publiico" in the city-pianning history of Siena allows us to establish the stages of its construction and to make a parallel investigation of the historical situations which led to structural and functional changes or transformations in it.

The work of a large group of painters, who decorated the Town Hall from the end of the thirteenth century up to the nineteenth, and the presence there of many of the masterpieces of Italian painting, were the stimulus for fresh and deeper research, original studies crowned by important discoveries. In addition to the presentation of a newly-identified and precious manifestation of Simone Martini's work, this volme provides a series of critical re-examinations, proposals, and revisions of extraordinary interest concerning several pre-eminent figures of the great "Sienese school", from Ambrogio Lorenzetti to Taddeo di Bartolo, Sano di Pietntro, and Neroccio di Bartolomeo Landi, and, beyond, to Beccafumi and Sodoma." - (from the dj).

Pp (),ix-xii,(2),1-271,(3)+ 8-page photo section. 8vo, two-tone cloth, grey boards, black spine. "Wh en Captain Ken Calder returned home to Saskatchewan after five years of fighting in World War II, the last thing he expected to find was another man living with his wife. Three weeks later, the heartbroken soldier mailed a suicide note to his closest wartime buddy, and took his own life. Fifty yearslater, Calder's two nephews, finally learned of the note and got to read t hat wrenching missive. In the process, they befriended the man who had beentheir uncle's confidant. In A Richer Dust, author Robert Calder uses his u ncle's wartime journal and letters, as well as newspaper accounts and military memoirs, to vividly recreate the horrendous battlefield conditions in Italy and Holland. Amid bombs and artillery fire, amid seas of mud and endless rain, soldiers kept alive a vision of home and hearth to keep them going. In Ken Calder's case, as in many other instances, that vision proved to be an illusion. A Richer Dust explores the profound effect that the suicide had on Captain Calder's parents, the brother whose alcoholism led to his being institutionalized, and the two boys who grew up idealizing their soldier uncle. It is a powerful exploration of a case of unrecognized post-traumatic stress and a profoundly moving account of war and its aftermath." - from the dj Very good in dustjacket. 17.50

Bibliography of Macmillan of Canada Imprin ts 1519. "In this deeply moving love story, with its colorful Roman background, Morley Callaghan has achieved a novel ot major importance. In Sam Raymond, the veteran Canadian news photographer on assignment to cover the death of the old Pope and the election of a new one, Callaghan provides an unforgettable portrait of a successful, but lonely man, who, at thirty-nine, has deliberately the comfitments of love for the consolations of his private life as a serious painter. When, shortly after Sam arrives in Rome, he encounters Anna Connel, twenty-six, a beautiful but alcoholic TV singer in escape from her failures in the States and living with an aging , Italian movieuircnur, he is moved to an emotional involvement beyond anything he has ev er Known. Drawn to Anna by a complex of motives he only half understands, sensing beneath the ruins of her destructive experience a noble core of of endurance and survival, Sam bargains with Alberto, the director, for possession of Anna and moves her into his own apartment. [...] The vivid background of the novel — the dramatically sacred rites and processions contrasted with the tourist Rome of 'ruins,' sidewalk cafes and expensive restaurants —is further testament to a writer of descriptive power and imaginative dept h who has written his finest novel."

100 CARTER, Doris V. Never Leave Your Head Uncovered : a Canadian Nursing Sister in World War Two
Potlatch Publications, Waterdown, Ont., 1999, ISBN:0919676529 
CARTER, Doris V. Never Leave Your Head Uncovered : A Canadian Nursing Sister in World War Two. Waterdown, Ont. : Potlatch Publications, (1999). Pp. (2), iii-viii, 1-155, (5). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated black card covers. "How many Canadians are aware that 3.512 nursing sisters - dieticians, physiotherapists and occupational therapists - served with the Canadian forces during World War Two? Or that they staffed military hospitals in Newfoundland, England, Sicily, and Italy? Soon after D-Day the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps Nursing Service reached its peak strength with 3.214 members, 2.152 of them overseas. Sixty thousand wounded Canadian soldiers, along with many from other allied nations - and even the enemy - were treated with tender loving care by these dedicated Canadian medical professionals. Nursing SAister Lieutenant Doris V. Carter served overseas with the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps from 1940 to 1945. Her duties took her to numerous military hospitals in England, and later to Algeria, Sicily, Italy and Belgium. She was sent to Rome after its fall where, amidst many other adventures, she met Pope Pius XII, discovered the reason a soldier's would wouldn't heal was because his watch strap was buried in it, and watched in horror as one citizen cut the living heart out of another suspected of being a Fascist. Here, in her own vivid words, is Lieutenant Carter's riveting story" -- fromback cover. Very good. 12.50
