"In 1934, North America lay stripped of its riches by a great depression. When the land refused to yield its bounty and the seagrew stingy, everyone in the Western World found it harder to survive, esp ecially those in the isolated outports of Newfoundland. The Last Farewell tells the true story of a crew of logger-sailors who left their home port ofHare Bay aboard a two-masted schooner in early June of that year. Along he r route to St. John's, the crew of the Ethel Collett tell each other stories of life and death on the sea. They relive some of Newfoundland's richest historical moments, from shipwrecks and sealing disasters to political strife and financial ruin. But little do they know that they are heading towardone of the most astonishing tales of them all: their own." -- back cover. Very good. 10.00

11105 COLLINS, Gary. Left to Die : The Story of the SS Newfoundland Sealing Disaster, First Edition in dustjacket
Flanker Press Limited, St. John's , 2014, ISBN:1771173289 
COLLINS, Gary. Left to Die : The Story of the SS Newfoundland Sealing Disaster. St. John's : Flanker Press Limited, 2014. First Printing. 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."

They are better educated, more affluent, more vigorous, and longer-lived than any generation before them, yetobstinately cling to a forthright simplicity no generation is likely to re gain.

Generation gaps are as old as humankind, but rarely has there been as much misunderstanding and veiled animosity as there is between young and old today.

"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.

COLLINSON, Howard Creel. Documenting Design : Works on Paper in the European Collection of the Royal Ontario Museum. 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."

Robert Garland Colodny (b. August 5, 1915, Phoenix, Arizona - d. March 17, 1997, Pleasant Hills, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania).

"This a study of the battles that were waged between the armies of the Spanish Republic and the armies of General Francisco Franco for the city of Madrid. 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."

"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].

"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.

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

[...] The poems are taken verbatim from Strachan's uncollected writings. They are poems by virtue of teh special character of theri eloquence. They arenew in that they speak with fresh urgency and directness to a new age. [.. .] The found poem exactly suitys the polished, tempered quality of Colombo's poetic art. Cool, sensitive and poised, Colombo is the kind of craftsman who can best handle the delicate ironies released by this most demanding ofpoetic forms.

"We Stand on Guard is the first comprehensive collectionof the songs, poems, and verses of Canadians in battle. It brings together famous poems (like "In Flanders Fields"), well-loved songs (like "Mademois elle from Armentières"), and previously unpublished verses (like "The Fenian Blood-Hounds") to dramatize the history of Canada, conflict by conflict. Over three hundred years of martial experience are covered, from the early Indian battles through rebellions and insurrections to the two World Wars (and even World War III). Many of the contributors are poets as well known as Earle Birney, Robert W. Service, Maor Charles G.D. Roberts, Al Purdy, Alden Nowlan, and Raymond Souster; others are soldier-poets unknown to literary history who put into words the meaning of heroism and human suffering. WeStand on Guard was compiled by John Robert Colombo and Michael Richardson who explain in their Introduction that far from being a glorification of warfare, this anthology is a tribute to the spirit of man and the love of freedom. The same note is sounded in the Foreword, which was contributed by Richard Rohmer." - (from the dj). Very good in dustjacket. 20.00

Very good, tidy copy with bright gilt. 140.00 Archibald Ross Colquhoun (b. March 1848, off Cape Town - d. December 18, 1914) traveller, government official, writer. "This little work is intended to bring before the Anglo-Saxon public a question of vital importance. It is not such a complicated and difficult question as is generally supposed, nor is it one that can be shelved for settlement by a future generation. "The man in the street" is nowadays a powerful factor in the facing and solution of political situations,and it is for him that this book has been written, and not for the few exp erts on the Central Asian question who have already arrived at fixed conclusions. The writer makes no claim to presenting an exhaustive study of the subject, but hopes that his sketch of things, as they are in reality—a sketch from the life, and not from official descriptions—will arouse sufficient interest to induce others to make a study for themselves, and decide in their own minds whether or no it is desirable that the Anglo-Saxon race shouldbe worsted in the "struggle for Asia." There are many who ridicule the ide a of such an impending struggle. Do they base their confidence on the pacific intentions of Russia, or on the impregnability of all other nations withwhom she is likely to dispute the possession of Asia? In either case the h istory of the past throws a significant light on the possibilities of the future. The advance of Russia—"creeping on bit by bit"—is, in this little book, viewed as a whole, and the connection between the transformation of theFar East, especially of China, and the Russian advance towards India throu gh Central Asia, is shown to be intimate. With British interests in India are closely bound up the interests of the whole Anglo-Saxon race, and indeedof many of the Latin races as well. That these interests are in real jeopa rdy the writer has endeavoured to make quite plain. - from the Preface. 1 Histobical Introduction 1 2. Historical Introduction — continued; 3.
