Peter Dodgson Collingwood, OBE (b. March 2, 1922, Marylebone, London- d. October 9, 2008, Nayland, Essex, England).

"This book is the most comprehensive survey of tablet weaving techniques available. A traditional form of band weaving whose basic equipment has not changed for at least 2,300 years, tablet weaving does not require a loom; instead, the warp yarns are raised and lowered by turning the flat tablets, or cards, through which they are threaded. Although practical considerations limit the width of the bands that can be woven in this way, the tablets can be manipulated in an almost endless variety of combinations, making it possible to produce many, often complex, weave structures and patterns." (from the dj).

Pp (6),7-160. Illustrated. 4to, maroon cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "The Maker's Hand is an inspiring resource book for engineers, architects, designers, weavers and other craftsmen, and indeed all those involved in assembling threadlike elements into functional structures. Peter Collingwood, for whom structure is a consuming interest, has selected over ninety objects from around the world, each of which he analyses in detail, revealing the inevitable beauty that can be achievedonly by a marriage between appropriate materials and ideal structure. In m any cases the structures have been evolved and perfected over centuries. All the objects, which range from Indian camel girths to the springs of a US army Jeep seat, from Japanese triaxial silk to Botswanan beer strainers, and from Omani sandsocks to a Tuareg hat, have been specially photographed byDavid Cripps to complement the author's analytical diagrams. Together they provide a book of outstanding visual appeal. Few people have the knowledge and experience to understand and analyze so wide a range of structures, bu t Peter Collingwood does so triumphantly, offering a unique insight into the balance of material and structure that should be the basis of all design"(from the dj). , Contents : One Single Element : Linking; Interlacing; Sim ple Looping; Interconnected Looping; Interlooping.

"This book is the outcome of a long-growing conviction that the only philosophy that can be of real use to anybody at the present time is a critical review of the chief forms of human experience, a new Treatise of Human Nature philosophically conceived. This isa project which in itself is not new; but its possibilities are very far f rom being exhausted. We find people practising art, religion, science, and so forth, seldom quite happy in the life they have chosen, but generally anxious to persuade otehrs to follow their example. Why are they doing it, and what do they get for their pains? The questino seems, to me, crucial for the whole of modern life, and I do not see the good of plunging into the systematic exposition of logic or ethics, psychology or theology, till it is answered. Nor can I, even at the outset, conceal my suspicion that a philosophy of this kind -- a philosophy of the forms of experience -- is the onlyphilosophy that can exist, and that all other philosophies are included in it." - from the preface.

"This book is the outcome of a conviction that unwillingness to face questions of method is the chief obstacle to the progress of contemporary philosophy. It attempts a systematic treatment of the methods and peculiarities of philosophical thought, disengaging the relations between philosophy, on its formal side, and science, whether mathematical or empirical. The argument is technical in character, but it is presented simply and directly, and it will appeal not only to experts but to all who concern themselves with the problem of 'what philosophy is'." - from the dust jacket.

"This treatise on aesthetic is the most important work that its author has written. It begins by showing that the word 'art' is used as a name not only for 'art proper', but also for certain things which are 'art falsely so called'. These are (a) craft or skill, (b) magic,and (c) amusement. Each of these, by confusion with art proper, generates a false aesthetic theory. In the course of attacking these theories the author criticizes the current psychological theories of art, offers a new theory of magic, and reinterprets Plato's so-called 'attack on art', showing that it has been entirely misunderstood. Art proper has two characteristics: it is imagination and expression. In explaining what these terms mean the author attacks the modern doctrine of 'sensa' and demands a return to Hume, whose most important contentions are neglected by his professed disciples today. Finally, important inferences are drawn concerning the position of art in human society." - from the dust jacket. Contents: 1. Introduction; Part I: Art and Not Art: 2. Art and Craft; 3.

Bound by Hollingworth & Moss. Pp (6),2-410,(2). Paginated and printed on one side only. Thick, tall 8vo, gr een cloth, gilt lewttering to front and spine. Davis Collins. "This is the first study of the Russian Red Guard to be undertaken in a western country.Owing to circumstances it is based on fragmentary and incomplete sources a nd cannot be considered definitive. The origins of the organisation are traced through an investigation of the revolutionary experiences of and political theories developed in Europe, North America and Russia during the last three centuries. It is compared with various other forms of armed organisation in an attempt to define its nature. This is followed by a detailed summary of moves to create, and to prevent the formation of, Red Guard detachments in Petrograd, Moscow and many other locations in the area covered by the Russian Empire during 1917 and the first few months of 1918. A structuralanalysis of the Red Guard presents the most accurate information available at the moment about its constitutional and organisational structure and ab out the social origins, age, sex, nationality and political affiliations ofits members. This leads on to an assessment of the various roles it played during the revolutionary events of the period in question.

Pp (10),11-342,(2) including two 16-page sections of maps and photos. 8vo, red cloth, silver lettering to front and spine. "'They didn’t die like flies, you know,like I’ve heard some reporters say over the years. Oh no, it wasn’t like t hat a’tall. The men who died didn’t just drop like flies. There was nothingquick or easy about it. They had frozen feet, and fingers too numb and cra mped with the cold to wipe the tears from their eyes.' Cecil Mouland, the last living survivor of the SS Newfoundland sealing disaster, told his storyto Gary Collins in the fall of 1971 while travelling to St. John’s, where the old ice hunter would live out his final days. This book grew from that encounter and stands alone as the defining tale of the Bonavista Bay men who were left to die on the ice. The historic convergence of ice, seals, and men in late March 1914 marked the end of Newfoundland’s innocence. Men bothyoung and old left their homes from all over the province that year to pur sue the annual seal hunt. Among the vessels that took them to the ice was the Newfoundland, a wooden-walled steamship captained by the famous Captain Westbury Kean. With no wireless aboard the ship, the stage was set for seventy-eight of the men who went over the side and their fates sealed. Left toDie is Gary Collins’s most ambitious and creative work of non-fiction, a s torytelling masterpiece. With new photos and new research revealed, he recalls with stunning clarity what history remembers about the sealing disasterof 1914." - from front dj flap. Very good in dustjacket. 19.00

"The purpose of this book is to enable the resident and tourist alike to identify and learn more about the more common wildflowers of the island. Newfoundland is endowed with a number of rather unique plants, many of which are also included in this book. We haveseveral parasitic plants which obtain their food from other live plants, s uch as dwarf mistletoe which grows on coniferous trees. We also have several sprophytic plants which lack chlorophyll and break down decaying matter in the soil to use as their food. Indian pipe and coralroot are examples of saprophytic plants. Acid bogs which cover some 15% of the island are poor in nutrients and a number of bog plants specialized to capture and digest insects for the nutrients lacking in these boggy environments. The pitcher plant, the province's floral emblem, is one of the most noticeable of these insectivorous plants, but there are several smaller ones including butterwort, bladderworts and sundews." - from the introduction.

Large 8vo, grey cloth, silver lettering to sp ine. "For those who believe that globalization is a purely modern phenomenon, this book holds a startling and absorbing lesson. From Egypt to Babylon immerses readers in a world of exotic empires and states as they waxed and waned and interacted in a period of extraordinary internationalismall before the rise of the Persian Empire. The ancient Egyptians, Minoans, Mycenaeans, Hittites, Canaanites, Hurrians, Aramaeans, Israelites, Urartians, Mannaeans, Assyrians, Phrygians, Kassites, Chaldaeans, Elamites, Scythians, Medes, and Persians: these are the societies who for a millennia peopled the world from the Aegean and Egypt in the west to what we know now as Iraq and Iran in the east. In a concise introduction, illustrated with objects drawn largely from the collections of the British Museum, this book takes the reader through the vast and varied landscape of this period, where a far-flung world was linked by military expansion, diplomatic relations, and movement of goods and peoples that brought about profound cultural exchanges and technological and social revolutions. The story brings the reader from the foundations of the Egyptian empire through the turmoil at the end of the second millennium bce to the unprecedented political unification of the whole region by kings of Persia. From Egypt to Babylon weaves together the political histories of the regions diverse societies for the first time, tracing shifting fortunes and burgeoning colonies, trading connections and cultural pressures in what was truly the worlds first international age."

"In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before - and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love." - from the front dj flap.

Toronto, Buffalo, London : Royal Ontario Museum / University of Toronto Press, (1993). Pp (6),vii-viii,(1),2-120. Illustrated. 4to, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "To understandthe history of decorative arts and design it is necessary to study the way s in which designs are created and transmitted. Documenting Design seeks toshow how prints and drawings can demonstrate numerous aspects of the role of works on paper in the history of design. From early in the history of printmaking, prints were used to communicate designs both for specific objects and for ornamental patterns that could be applied to different kinds of objects, including architectural elements. A special category is the pattern- or model-book, intended to promote a particular style or approach to the design of furniture or decoration. Printed ornament sheets may also be self-contained works of art, unsuited to direct application to objects. Here, printed ornament becomes simply a genre of fine art, like landscape and portraiture, for example. This was especially so during the Rococo era. Countless buildings, rooms, objects, and decorative schemes - some of them famous in their day - no longer exist. Important design "events" such as festivities and ceremonies have often comprised great quantities of ephemeral architecture, decoration, and decorated objects. Such products of design can often only be studied in the prints and drawings that record their existence. Unlike prints, drawings can document and therefore present a unique insight into the process by which a designer develops and finalizes an idea. Drawings can also demonstrate the collaborative nature of the decorative arts: designers and makers were (and are) rarely identical. Many drawings have survived because they were contract drawings, meant to be shown to a potential customer or patron, and kept as a record of a transaction. Designs for metalwork were frequently drawn at full scale, both for maximum clarity and in order to create a vivid impression of the amounts of precious metal required. Since the 15th century, prints have been designed to be used as objects themselves, either in conjunction with other objects or as devices of communication. The variety of such works is vast; Documenting Design includes a theatre program, a menu design, and posters, among other types. Products ofgraphic design are often collected as documents of stylistic movements. Ex amples as various as Japonisme (late 19th century) and Psychedelic (1960s) are included. From Heinrich Aldegrever's jewel-like engraving Two Spoons and a Hunting Whistle of 1539 to Neo-Op Psychedelic Revival handbills of 1988, Documenting Design illuminates the importance of prints and drawings as documents of design history."

It was this struggle, beginning with the collapse of Republican arms at Toledo in September, 1936, and ending with the victory of the Madrid armies at Guadalajara in March, 1937, that determined the duration and characteristics of the rest of the conflict. Hence, it was the central episode of the Spanish War, its focal point for six months. The crucible in which was formed the Ejercito Popular, the People's Army, was the front of Madrid. Here were created the myths which plague the historian. Here, due to international intervention, the Spanish struggle lost its purely national character and became at once a civil war of a profoundly Spanish type, a war of independence waged by a section of the Spanish people against German, Italian, and Moroccan armies, and a clash of supranational ideologies that aroused the deepest passions of peoples far removed from the immediate Spanish interests at stake."

COLOMA, Roland Sintos, Bonnie McELHINNY, Ethel TUNGOHAN, John Paul C. CATUNGAL, and Lisa M. DAVIDSON, (eds.). Filipinos in Canada : Disturbing Invisibility. Edited by Roland Sintos Coloma, Bonnie McElhinny, Ethel Tungohan, John Paul C. Catungal, and Lisa M. Davidson. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (2012). First Paperback Printing. Pp.

"By 2010, the Philippines became Canada's largest source of short- and long-term migrants, surpassing China and India, both of whose populations vastly exceed that of the Philippines. The fourth-largest visible minority group in the country, the Filipino community is frequently associated with such figures as the victimized nanny, the selfless nurse, and the gangster youth. On one hand, these narratives concentrate attention, although in narrow and stereotypical ways, on critical issues. On the other, they render invisible other serious matters facing Filipino communities.

This groundbreaking work, the first wide-ranging edited collection on Filipinos in Canada, explores gender, migration and labour, youth, and the politics of identity. Looking at these from the vantage points of anthropology, cultural studies, education, geography, history, information science, literature, political science, sociology, and women and gender studies, Filipinos in Canada provides a strong foundation for further research." - p.[i].

COLOMB, P.H., Vice-Admiral. Naval Warfare : Its Ruling Principles and Practice Historically Treated. Third Edition, Revised and Corrected, with Additional Chapter on Recent Illustrations, and new Maps and Plans, including Spanish American War of 1898-9. London : W.H. Allen and Co., Limited, 1899.

Large 8vo, ribbed navy blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "Historians [...] had generally neglected to give any attention to the causes of success or failure in naval war; they did not connect the facts or events which were necessary for that purpose. Naval commanders, on the other hand, seem to have been so entirely convinced of the force of causes beyond their control, and so satisfied of their obviousness, that they seldom eluded to them. [...] I held this conditionof the literature of naval war to be mainly responsible for the want of it s study, which was common; and thus for existing belief that nothing was tobe got from it either in lessons for the present, or guidance for the futu re. [...] I have a firm belief that the great laws of naval war, which I have endeavoured to trace throughout the centuries in whcih England has been building up her power, would be absolutely dominant in any naval war which now arose; and that they may be depended on for forecasting its course and preparing for it. Not that I assume to have, in all cases, arrived at just conclusions, but rather that there are, in the history of the past, ample materials for forming them and acting on them." - from the preface to the second edition.

11200 COLOMBO, John Robert Leonardo's Lists. First Edition, paperback.
Weed Flower Press, Toronto, 1972, 
COLOMBO, John Robert. Leonardo's Lists. Toronto: Weed Flower Press, 1972. First Printing. Pp. (6),7-20,(4). 8vo, illustrated stapled white card coverswith black lettering to front cover. "Throughout his long life, Leonardo d a Vinci filled volumnious notebooks with sketches and descriptions of real and imaginary objects. Thus the Florentine artist regularly 'took inventory' of the material and imaginary worlds around him. Sometimes he combined the two orders, as when he penned a recipe, a list of actual events in Milan in 1500, a register of the leaders of Florence, a memorandum of things to do that day, a catalogue of drawings on hand in his studio, an inventory of the vital functions of the body, an outline of the book he would never write.... John Robert Colombo, the Toronto poet and editor, recognized the poetic potential of these lists, which may be found in Edward MacCurdy's standard translation of 'The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci', and arranged them into a group of curiously evocative poems. They combine the two orders of cxreation, which Leonardo da Vinci took to be: 'Pre-imagining -- the imagining of things that are to be. Post-imagining -- the imagining of things that are past'." - from rear. Very good. Due to its small size, shipping costs should be cheaper than quoted. 15.00
