DURRELL, Gerald. The Drunken Forest. With illustrations by Ralph Thompson. London : Rupert Hart-Davis, 1956. First Edition. Pp. (6), 7-238, (2). 8vo, red cloth with silver spine titles. "Once again Mr. Durrell is in quest of the odder of the small birds and animals to be found in the Argentinian pampas and the little-explored Chaco territory of Paraguay. The specimens he collects, ranging from the world's smallest owl to some of its deadliest snakes (including a singularly unaggresive anaconda) are quite as bizarre, as amusing, endearing and cantankerously individual as anything that walked, crept or flew through the enchanting pages of Three Singles to Adventure or The Bafut Beagles. For good measure he throws in a remarkable collection ofhuman beings, including Paula who combines the role of domestic servant wi th that of headmistress of the local brothel, discharging both functions with a high tyrannical temper; in addition he depicts some of the most splendid landscape in the world. The world itself intrudes and somewhat spoils his climax by producing a local revolution which makes it necessary for him to release some of his pets in order to get himself and his wife back to Buenos Aires with the rest, in as frail an aeroplane as was ever tied togetherwith bits of twine, conducted by a Polish pilot who cannot take aviation s eriously. The refusal of the animals to depart when given their liberty mayprove as disconcerting to the sentimentalist as it proved to Mr. Durrell." -- from dust jacket.

"Methuen, a seasoned survivor of countless spy missions thrust upon him by the Old Etonians running the Awkward Shop (as the British Secret Se rvice was called), feels he needs a respite from it all. He is looking forward to some trout fishing in Scotland. But when his superior, Dombey, explains that something strange is afoot in the Balkans, Methuen’s curiosity is immediately aroused. A fellow British spy has been murdered on a remote mountainside in Serbia by the White Eagles--presumably because he fell afoul of their life-or-death struggle against Tito and the Communists. What the Royalists are up to is a mystery Dombey wants Methuen to solve. The Cold War--weary Methuen feels his blood stir. At the very least, he thinks, the trout fishing ought to be excellent. Setting up camp in a cave deep in the Serbian countryside, Methuen baits his hooks and waits for the contact who willlead him into the deeper water of the mystery. He finds out soon enough th at his mission involves far more than sport fishing--hislife is the one on the line. Hunted by both the Communists and the White Eagles, Methuen is played to his limit. He fights for his life, summoning every ounce of his strength as he gets pulled into a roaring cataract of events that eventually lands him on a dizzying mountain peak--and reels readers in for a tour-de-force climax that will leave them breathless. Based on Durrell’s own experiences with the Foreign Office in Bucharest after WorldWar II, White Eagles over Serbia may be one of the finest spy thrillers ever written.” - (Arcade Publishing).

Did he -- or rather she -- die giving birth to a child after ruling Christendom for two years, five months and four days during the ninth century? This scandalous legend from the middle ages bore surprising fruit in 1886, when Emmanuel Royidis published his 'life' of Pope Joan which survived banning by the Orthodox Church and its author excommunication, to become a classic of modern Greek literature which still sells steadily. Lawrence Durrellcalls this book 'a masterpiece of irreverence, witty and a trifle improper in parts... a sort of brief record of the history and misfortunes of Eros after his transformation by Christianity from a God to an underground resistance movement." - from the dustjacket.

Illustrations, with maps. 8vo, illustrated blue cardcovers. "One hundred years ago, Canadians went to the polls to decide the fate of their country in an election that raised issues vital to Canada's national independence and its place in the world. Canadians faced a clear choice between free trade with the United States and fidelity to the British Empire, and the decisions they made in September 1911 helped shape Canada's political and economic history for the rest of the century. Canada 1911 revisits and re-examines this momentous turn in Canadian history, when Canadians trulyfound themselves at a parting of the ways. It was Canada's first great mod ern election and one of the first expressions of the birth of modern Canada. The poet Rudyard Kipling famously wrote at the time that this election was nothing less than a fight for Canada's soul. This book will explain why."-- from rear cover.

The buildings, the stree t ravines and the people - they are all portrayed in a spectrally twisting perspective along a crooked, precipitous path. The distorted angle, the boldly tilted upward perspective, the uncanny optics reveal one ting: in this city nothing is like it once was.

Paul Duval (b. 1922).

Alfred Joseph Casson, OC (b. May 17, 1898, Toronto – d. February 20, 1992, Toronto).

"A.J. Casson is one of the most beloved of Canadian artists. His works are sought after probably more than those of any other living native painter. As a member of the Group of Seven in the many years since its dissolution he has created a brilliant series of canvases celebrating our landscape in all its many moods and seasons. He has received every honour available to a Canadian artist. His works are treasured in every national public gallery collection, and in hundreds of private collections. It is to bring together a magnificent cross-section from these collections that this volume has been designed. It includes representative major canvases, oil sketches and watercolours. The artist himself has overseen the quality of every plate in this publication." - the jacket.

"This beautifuil volume, full of the light and colour that characterize most Impressionist art, is a thoroughly enjoyable guide to Canadian Impressionist painting from roughly 1885 to 1920. It bringstogether, for the first time in book form, the Canadian representatives of the world's most popular and accessible school of painting, offering a tot ally fresh look at a now-vanished society, and presenting a strong contrastto the isolated, unpopulated vision of the country usually portrayed by th e Group of Seven -- although members of that group represented in their earlier, more intimate styles. 'Canadian Impressionism' conveys a vivid cross-section of the subject, including many paintings that have never before been reproduced. The work of neglected artists such as Helen McNicoll, Frank Armington, John S. Gordon, John Russell, and William Clapp is featured amongthe seventy full-colour plates, alongside the more familiar talents of J.W . Morrice, Paul Peel, Lawren Harris, Maurice Cullen, and A.Y.

A change of wind or tide can turn a relaxing seascape into a wild mountain of spume and spray. It is obvious that the more we can undersatnd the causes and motivation behind the many moods of the sea, then the more we can prepare for the ensuing conditions afloat. In this book Ken Duxbury considers the interaction of the sea with wind, tidesand land masses. he relates how waves and swell evolve and examines the en ormous energy contained within them.

Aboard a sixty-food long-liner, he heads toward the ice-fields of 'The hunt' all the while suffering from seasickness, and battling with his fellow crewmen the firigd arctic air, high winds, pounding seas, and the ever-treacherous ice. For Mickey, the Hunt means both exhaustion and exhilaration. It is both an honour and a penance. 'Over the Side, Mickey' is a gripping first hand account of the 1997 Newfoundland Seal Hunt as told by a sealer, Michael 'Mickey' Dwyer. The account vividly and graphically depicts the day-to-day struggles and small triumphs of the back-breaking and brutalwork of the cull. Thought-provoking and disturbing, 'Over the Side, Mickey ' is a must-read for anyone who feels strongly about the Hunt." - from the rear cover. Very good. 20.00

A volume in the Studies inSocial History series. Editor: Harold Perkin; Assistant Editor: Eric J. Ev ans. "Girls learn about 'femininity' from childhood onwards, first through their relationships with the family, and later from their teachers and peers. Using sources which vary from diaries to Inspector's reports, Carol Dyhouse studies the socialization of middle- and working-class girls in late-Victorian and early-Edwardian England. She traces the ways in which schoolingat all social levels at this time tended to reinforce lessons in the sexua l division of labour and patterns of authority between men and women, whichgirls had already learned at home. In Elementary Schools, social anxieties about 'National Efficiency', high infant-mortality figures and a declining birth-rate helped to shape the curriculum offered to working-class girls t hrough the period 1870-1920. The author then focuses on the emergence of a social psychology of adolescent girlhood in the early-twentieth century with its educational implications. Finally, she examines the relationship between feminism and girls' education through the period studied." - from the dust jacket. Contents: 1. First lessons in femininity: the experience of family life; 2. Schooling, college and femininity: some experiences of middle-class girls; 3. Good wives and little mothers: educational provision for working-class girls; 4. Adolescent girlhood: autonomy versus dependence; 5. Feminist perspectives and responses.

In all of the artwork, the human being is either depicted or implied along side the animal being. And most of the animals are, in the oretical parlance, 'near to us' and knowable as pets or domestic and familiar creatures, or as icons within religious systems such as Buddhism." -from Dykhuis's introduction.
