Illustrated. 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. A volume in the Studies in Curriculum History series. "This book traces political conflict over educational organization in Canada West from the turbulent decade of the 1830s to the educationalsettlement of 1850, under which most sections of the governing classes agr eed to the establishment of a centrally-controlled system for the instruction of the masses. The practical organization and administration of this system of state education is detailed for its formative period, from the educational settlement of 1850 to the first systematic revision of the system in1871. The book demonstrates and details the processes whereby a state syst em of education first destroyed or marginalized an early system of locally controlled elementary education, and then put in place a set of disciplinary practices and procedures aimed at the population as a whole. The conflicts and struggles surrounding the reconstruction of popular education are documented. The failure of attempts by state educational administrators to putin place a system of instruction which would produce 'cheerful and willing obedience' are considered in chapters dealing with physical violence at sc hool conflicts over attendance norms, over curriculum, and over the qualifications of teachers." - from the dustjacket.

"There is a dreamlike quality to many of the stories in this new collection from Wayne Curtis. In Wild Apples, he returns to familiar themes of love and longing, and the push-pull emotions which inevitably accompany any attempt to break free of the ties that bind. Simple pleasures abound in these evocative stories, be it fishing on the river, gathering beans for an evening supper (are they beans or has-beens?), or listening to the jukebox at the local diner. Curtis mines the shaft of everyday experiences, turning each one into a meditation on human nature. In the title story, an afternoon drive yields fertile ground as a father and son stop to shake downa gnarled crab apple tree for the sweet-sour orbs of autumn. With a seemin gly effortless style, he casts his line into the river of the past, reelingin tales of youthful folly, the Christmastime birth of a little sister, an d life on the Miramichi River, which could be any river, anywhere. Curtis also shares his insight into well-known friends, including novelist David Adams Richards and Yvon Durelle, the Fighting Fisherman. His contemplation ofthe life and work of Robert Frost casts a fresh light on the Pulitzer Priz e-winning poet." - Goose Lane. A near-fine copy. 11.00

Index. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to black panel to spine. Very good in nicked, spine-sunned, but unclipped, dustjacket. 75.00 "TheRussian army was a pillar of the regime of Nicholas I, as were the politic al police and the Russian Orthodox church. What sort of army was it on which the might of the Tsar depended? Was its power as awesome as many Europeans of 1850 believed, or was it the giant with feet of clay that Western public opinion - especially its liberal and radical wing - believed it to be after the Crimean War? In this study, based primarily on Russian sources as amplified by the statements of foreign observers of this army, Mr. Curtiss deals with these questions by a topical analysis of the military machine anda narrative account of the Russian campaigns. The army of Nicholas I was e ssentially a serf-army of the eighteenth century. The rank and file were peasants torn from their families to serve for twenty-five years - later reduced to fifteen for some individuals. By a strange combination of brutal discipline and persuasive indoctrination these men were converted into fairly obedient and effective soldiers. The military training of the troops is described - the methods used, the skills sought, and the effectiveness of the various arms of the service. Other sections of the book deal with the method of providing officers to command the peasant masses, the level of Russianmilitary science, the weapons used, the army's medical system and its achi evements, the extent to which corruption was present in the arny's administration, and the roles of Nicholas I, the first soldier of Russia, and of his revered Field Marshal Paskevich. During the thirty-year reign of NicholasI Russian troops fought Persians and Turks, Polish insurgents, and Hungari an rebels against the Hapsburgs. Throughout this period, Russian forces were also fighting Caucasian mountaineers in an incessant and fluctuating conflict that was far from ended by 1855. The book closes with a discussion of the Russian army in the war with the French and the British in the Crimea and with Turkish forces on the Danube and in Asia. The Crimean War marked the end of the old regime in both European politics and in Russia itself. It was Russia's first encounter with the more advanced armies of the mid-nineteenth century and brought into sharp relief the weaknesses and failings of the Russian military system. However, te war also gave strong evidence of the basic strength of Russian military power, a strength which prevented theforces of much of Europe from gaining more than a limited victory."

This book provides a glimpse of Labrador a century ago through the eyes of Eliot Curwen, a young medical missionary attracted to the region for a few months in 1893 by Wilfred Grenfell. "Curwen's account, ostensibly written for his sisters back home, is rich with both observation and insight, providingstories and anecdotes on the flora, fauna, and grim weather of the region. [...] It is this quiet hush of confidences that gives the journal its imme diate appeal, suggesting much about the nature of Victorian leisure activities, as well as the sheer philanthropic motives lying behind such a grueling adventure." - from the rear cover.

Triple Column. 8vo, blue and white stapled wrappers, lettered in white, blue and black. The Invisible Soldier: Captain W.A.P.Durie, His Life and Afterlife by Veronica Cusack In November, 1915, a shy, cosseted and rather pompous bank clerk left Canada to fight as a lieutenan t on the battlefields of Europe. Despite genteel poverty, his mother had raised him to be the heir to both military greatness and aristocratic splendour. She even followed him to Europe in an attempt to manipulate his destiny. But in the awful killing ground of the Ypres Salient, and subsequently atVimy and Passchendaele, William Arthur Peel Durie came to understand somet hing of the man he was, instead of the man he was supposed to be. Mother was not pleased. When her son died in the trenches of France, Anna Durie could once again control his fate. Despite the dictates of Britain and the Empire stating that soldiers who fell in the Great War must rest with their comrades, she made up her mind to steal his body from its grave in the military cemetery near Lens and smuggle it home to the Toronto family plot. Veronica Cusack has unearthed a treasure trove of letters, memoirs, and war records and used them to brilliantly recreate a soldier finding himself in battle and a woman driven by her maternal obsession.

If successful, it will create a defense network that will insure America's security from foreign attack for the foreseeable future. The sole hitch is that the project requires a quantity of byzanium, an extremely rare elemen t. In fact, it looks as through the only byzanium in the world lies in the hold of RMS Titanic, sunk in 1912 and still resting more than twelve thousand feet deep in the North Atlantic. The task is simple enough: Raise the Titanic! The man in charge of the mission is Dirk PItt. [...] Using highly sophisticated submersible equipment, Pitt sets to work at his Herculean job. The presence of two Russian spies doesn't help, nor does the intervention of one very nasty lady, Hurricane Amanda. For balance, howefver, there is one very sweet lady who doesn't in the least resemble your average marine archaeologist." -from the dj. Vg in nicked price-clipped dj. 65.00

Pp (8),[1]-433,(5). 8vo, dark blue paper covered spine, blue paper covered boards. A Kurt Austin Adventure. “Polar shift: It is the name for a phenomenon that may have occurred many times in the past. At the very least, it disorients birds and animals and damages electrical equipment. At its worst, it causes massive eruptions, earthquakes, and climatic changes. At its very worst, it would mean the obliteration of all living matter, and if that happens-exit Earth. Sixty years ago, an eccentric Hungarian genius discovered how to artificially trigger such a shift, but then his work was lost, or so it was thought. Now, the charismatic leader of an anti-globalization group plans to use the work to give the world's industrialized nations a small jolt, then reverse the shift back again. The only problem is, it cannot be reversed. Once the shift starts, there is nothing anyone can do about it. Austin, Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA Special Assignments Team certainly have faced diresituations before, but never have they encountered anything like this. Thi s time . . . even they may be too late.” - from the dj. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 15.00

Double column. Square 8vo, illustrated forest green card covers. Brian Craig Uniacke Cuthbertson (b. 1936, Sackville, New Brunswick). "The town of Wolfville and the village of Grand Pré, nestled side-by-side in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley, are home to some of North America's most fascinating history and culture -- history and culture that are very much alive in the area today. From peaceful, tree-lined streets to wind-swept marshes to awe-inspiring Cape Blomidon, the 'Land of Evangeline' also boasts a varied and beautiful landscape, justly celebrated by poets like Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Bliss Carman, as well as artists, visitors, and residents. In this lively book, adorned with a wide selection of visuals from public and private collections, historian and author Brian Cuthbertson traces the evolution of the land and the people. He tells of the Acadian settlers who turned the marshlands into dykelands, the New England Planters who founded Wolfville, the determined Baptists who established Acadia University, and the shared growth of town and gown. In the final section, he offers guided walking tours of present-day Wolfville and Grand Pré, with easy-to-use maps, colour photos of the area's most significant features and text that weaves past into present." - from the rear cover.

CUTHBERTSON, Brian. Johnny Bluenose at the Polls. [Cover adds : Epic Nova Scotian Election Battles 1758-1848]. Halifax : Formac Publishing, 1994. Pp (4),[v]-vii,(1),[1]-344. Illustrated. 8vo, blue glossy hardcover. Tennyson: Cape Bretoniana 1306. "This is the story of the early days of election campaigning in Nova Scotia. Historian Brian Cuthbertson describes the province's first ninety years of hard-fought elections from 1758 to 1848. What emerges is a sense of political life in Nova Scotia two centuries ago. The focusis on the local politics of each county of Nova Scotia detailing the confl icts and interests of their communities and leading families. This was a time when there were no secret ballots and voting was a spectator sport. Property owners voted by declaring their choice on a hastily-erected platform before a sheriff and assembled crowd. Political supporters were often bribedwith rum to intimidate those voting for other candidates. Merchants jostle d for power by forcing their debtors to vote for them. Lawyers fiercely competed with other lawyers to get elected, often carrying their rivalries into the courtroom. The stories of hundreds of Nova Scotian politicians, both elected and defeated, are told. Many of the issues dealt with by politicians, then as now, focused on the need to reform patronage politics and government spending." - rear cover. Very good. 22.00
