ANGLO, Sydney, (ed.). The Damned Art : Essays in the Literature of Witchcraft. London : Routledge & Kegan Paul, (1977). First Edition. Pp (4),v-viii,1-258,(2). Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. "Learned demonological literature, though frequently cited, is little read; and facile generalisation about such material has preceded the detailed study of individual texts. The Damned Art seeks to reverse this process. Only indirectly concerned with the unanswerable problems of popular mentality which have largely occupied recent students of medieval and renaissance witch persecution, the book approaches witchcraft and demonology through literary records. The works discussed deal not with the inchoate prejudices of the multitude but rather with contemporary theories propounded by those who sought either to justify, or to refute, persecution. Eight scholars of differing interests, and with different approaches to their subject, examine a selection of important, representative witchcraft texts - published in England, France, Germany, Italy and America - setting them within their intellectual context,and analysing both their style and argument. Thus not only the emotionalis m, but also the methodology of witchcraft belief is set before the modern reader; and the latter is, perhaps, even more harrowing than the former." (from he dj). Contents : 1. Evident authority and authoritative evidence : The malleus maleficarum (by Sydney Anglo). 2.

Railfare Enterprises Limited and The New Brunswick Museum, Toronto / Saint John:, 1979, ISBN:0919130291 
ANGUS, Fred. Loyalist City Streetcars : The Story of Street Railway Transitin Saint John, New Brunswick. Toronto / Saint John: "Published jointly by Railfare Enterprises Limited and The New Brunswick Museum", 1979. First Edition. Pp i-ii,1-82. Double column. Illustrated. Small folio, reddish-brown imitation leather. "For nearly 80 years the city was served by streetcars, originally horse-drawn and later powered by electricity. The history of thevarious companies which ran the streetcars in Saint John is one of conside rable interest, full of ambitious schemes, disappointments, frustrations, reorganizations, modernizations, plus innumerable anecdotes and legends. Except for the period 1876 to 1887, the streetcars ran from 1869 to 1948. Overthe years the number of cars run was surprisingly large in relation to the size of the system. By the time the last trams gave way to buses most Nort h American systems of comparable size had long since been abandoned, and the single-truck hand-braked cars were relics of a bygone era. In Loyalist City Streetcars, author Fred Angus captures the flavour of Canada's port city, and tells the story of New Brunswick's first street railway. You'll read about the bottleneck created by the original bridge over the famous Reversing Falls, with its inability to carry the weight of electric cars causing adivision of the street railway into two physically-separate sections.. See the streetcars meet steamboats at Indiantown, for the journey into town to bypass the falls. Hear how the horse gave way to electricity in J 893. Say "Thanks", along with all Saint John riders and residentss, tor the cars' hand-brakes which — with operator skill and much good luck - worked well enough in 54 years ot electric operation, to avoid any serious runaway streetcars down the city's treacherous hills. Read about the wild winter snows grinding the system to a halt. See cars built by Ahearn & Soper, Montreal Street Railway, the Ottawa Car Company, Tillsonburg Electric Car Company, and many more. Study the damage inflicted to turned-over cars during the labour strife of 1914, and how the army was called out to quell the uprising. [....]" - from the dj Contents: Foreword, Chapters : 1.

McGill-Queen's, Montreal and kingston, 1988, ISBN:0773505970 
ANGUS, James T. A Respectable Ditch : A History of the Trent-Severn Waterway 1833-1920. Kingston / Montreal : McGill-Queen's University Press, (1988).First Printing. Pp. (5),[vi]-xiv,(2),3-455,(3), including plates. Illustra ted in black and white. 8vo, decorated brown cloth with black lettering to spine. "In some respects the history of the Trent-Severn Waterway resemblesthe history of Canada. One parallels the other. The same political and eco nomic tensions that have constantly beset the country can be identified in the canal's story: defence against American invasion, free trade versus tariff protection, private enterprise or government intervention, the problem of moving vast quantities of grain from the central plains to deep-water ports, freight rates, energy production and who should control it, and the obsessive preoccupation with federal and provincial responsibilities. What follows is a record of how these national questions affected the development of a waterway that the country could ill afford and only a handful of people wanted. Consequently, this is not a story about transportation or engineering. It is a book about politics -- the politics of dreamers." - from the dustjacket. Contents: I: The Colonial Years, 1833-41: 1.

1151 Annual Register BURKE, Edmund Annual Register or a View of the History, Politicks Politics and Literaturefor the Years : 1758 to 1808
Dodsley and others, London, 1758, 
Annual Register . Annual Register or a View of the History, Politicks / Politics and Literature for the Year. London
The Annual Register (originally subtitled "A View of the History, Politicks and Literature of the Year ... ") is a long-established reference work, written and published each year, which records and analyses the year’s major events, developments and trends throughout the world.
It was first written in 1758 under the editorship of Edmund Burke. This collection contains much on the wars and revolutions of the eighteenth century, as well as chronicling development in most spheres of endeavour.
"The Annual Register was created in 1758 by the publishers James and Robert Dodsley. On 24 April 1758 the Dodsley brothers signed a contract with Edmund Burke (1729–97) to write and edit the material for The Annual Register, which was conceived as an annual publication which would review the history, politics and literature of the day.
Born in Ireland, Burke had trained as a lawyer before abandoning this field and turning to writing. He was an up-and-coming member of the intelligentsia and had already written several notable works, published by Dodsley. According to his contract with Dodsley, Burke was paid £100 per annum as editor of The Annual Register. In its original form, The Annual Register comprised a long historical essay on the “History of the Present War” (the Seven Years' War 1756–63), a Chronology, which gave an account of interesting and noteworthy events in Britain over the previous year, and a collection of “State Papers”, a miscellany of primary source material which included official documents, speeches,letters and accounts. In his preface to the 1758 volume Burke noted the difficulties he had faced in writing the history section of the book. Taking the “broken and unconnected materials” and creating from them “one connected narrative” had been, he commented, “a work of more labour than may at first appear”. Nevertheless, his perseverance and skill as an historian meant that by the time of its publication the first volume of The Annual Register contained a unique, contemporaneous account of the war, analysing its origins and development with a perspective not readily available at the time in newspapers or magazines. As a result the book sold widely, with the first volume going through five editions in its first 10 years. Given the conventions of the day, within which journalism was seen as a disreputable profession for a gentleman, Burke was publicly reticent about his connection with The Annual Register. However, his biographers are in agreement that Burke wrote and edited the book single-handedly until 1765 when he entered Parliament. From this time Thomas English was closely involved in writing the book and is regarded by some authorities as having taken over the editorship from Burke in that year. Scholars are divided on the question of Burke’s association with the book thereafter, although many suggest that he continued to contribute to the history section and that he played a significant role in overseeing The Annual Register’s compilation until the 1790s, even though much of the editorial work by this stage was being done by others."

See William B. Todd's A Bibliography of Edmund Burke, (2nd ed., 1982) pp.45-68, for Burke’s involvement with the Annual Register.

April 23, 1697, Staffordshire - d.June 6, 1762, Moor Park, Hertfordshire). "The career of Admiral Lord Anson heralded the most glorious epoch in the history of the Royal Navy. He was the first of the great eighteenth century admirals, preceding Rodney, Howe,St. Vincent and finally Nelson, whose mighty victory at Trafalgar set the seal on a process which was based not only on those qualities of seamanship, command and heroism which they all, without exception, possessed, but equally important, on the reorganization of the navy itself. [...] Anson was asailor in the tradition of Drake and Hawkins and his early life reads like the saga of a successful buccaneer. When in 1740 he was sent to harry the Spanish American possessions, he achieved not only this specific objective,but came home, after an epic voyage of circumnavigation involving terrible losses and setbakcs surmounted through leadership and resolve, with the ri chest prize cargo in history. [...] Later he was appointed to the Admiralty, where he served, with only a short break, from 1745 until his death in 1762, eventually becoming First Lord. In this capacity he introduced many reforms, salvaging the Navy from its moribund state and earning for himself the title 'Father of the Navy'." - from the dustjacket.
