Jameson, who became the settlement's Administrator, endeavoured to establish a border between Mashonaland and Matabeleland to put a stop to the matabele raids into the newly-acquired territory. By the end of 1892 it was apparent that the partition waws failing and that Lobengula was not prepared to accept the alienation of Mashonaland. In this fact lay the root of the Matabele War." - from the dj. Top edge dusty, minor inking to ffep, else vg in lightly nicked dj. 70.00

20503 GLASSCO, John Point of Sky. First Edition.
Oxford University Press, Toronto, 1964, 
GLASSCO, John. A Point of Sky. Toronto : Oxford University Press, 1964. First Edition. Pp 77. 8vo, blue cloth. Sutherland A3. "In A Point of Sky he reveals himself as a philosophical poet in the classic tradition. The nobly meditative odes, 'The Autumn Resurrection', 'The Day', and 'The Crows' have a depth of feeling and a richness of expression that recall the contemplative poetry of Archibald Lampman and Duncan Campbell Scott, though the sensibility is always modern. These qualities are sustained and heightened in thelong title poem that brings the collection to a close. A Point of Sky is a memorable addition to the mature poetic reorganization of values that has made Canadian poetry in recent years so significant and exciting."

(6),vii-xiii,(1),1-241,(1), frontispiece [by Adolf Dehn]. 8vo, mustard cloth with black titles to spine. "The year is 1928. John Glassco is eighteen andhas just arrived in Paris. With all the bravado of precocious youth he is writing his memoirs, which he continued off-and-on during his three eventful years in Paris and completed from notes in 1932-3. They were laid aside for thirty-five years and are offered here with only slight changes. An unsurpassed account of a hedonistic existence in a famous milieu, it has the freshness and total recall of recent experience. John Glassco revelled in hisyouth, his sensibility, his keen powers of observation, above all in Paris , and his book is a celebration of these things. It is alive with people. We meet George Moore, Emma Goldman, Richard Le Gallienne, Lord Alfred Douglas, Frank Harris, Robert McAlmon, Ernest Hemingway, Morley Callaghan, James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, as well as a host of fellow hedonists and eccentricswho are less well known. They will make an indelible impression on the rea der through Glassco's narrative skill and his ability to endow even the most trivial conversations, incidents and people with significance and immediacy." - from the dustjacket.

20507 GLASSCO, John) SUTHERLAND, Fraser John Glassco : An Essay and Bibliography. First Edition.
ECW Press, Downsview, ON, 1984, ISBN:0920802788 1984 0920802788 
(GLASSCO, John). SUTHERLAND, Fraser. John Glassco : An Essay and Bibliography. (Downsview, Ontario) : ECW Press, (1984). First Printing. Pp. (6),7-121,(3). 8vo, decorated grey cardcovers with white lettered black title block to front cover, black lettering to spine.

Fraser Sutherland (b. 1946, Pictou County, Nova Scotia).

"He was a gigolo in a Paris brothel and caused a scene at a Gertrude Stein party. He was Mayor of Foster in Quebec's Eastern Townships. He wrote the novels 'Fetish Girl' and 'The Temple of Pederasty'. He won the Governor-General's Award for Poetry. He was John Glassco (1909-81), whom Fraser Sutherland calls 'a dignified and elusive man, something of a genius'. In 'Memoirs from Montparnasse', Glassco linked the present with the glorious Paris years of Joyce, Hemingway, and the surrealists. Through his many translations and anthologies, he helped English Canada understand Quebec better. In his erotica, his unfaltering good taste yielded insights into the tangled psychosexual world of Aubrey Beardsley and Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. Always, he was a lyric poet. Sutherland has entered the labyrinth of Glassco's remarkable career and emerged with many new facts about one of the foremost figures in 20th-century Canadian literature. 'John Glassco: An Essay and Bibliography' is the first detailed treatment of a writer who -- often styled as a fop, dilettante, and Edwardian eccentric -- maintained an hermetic devotion to his own large talent. Sutherland's book will be indispensible to anyone unraveling the truth about a mysterious and complicated man whose life and work commands fresh attention." - from rear.

Bibliography includes more than 250 references.

With index to critics in the bibliography.

Name inked to flyleaf, five characters inked inside rear cover, else very good. NOTE: Due to the small size of this book, shipping costs may be cheaper than quoted. 20.00

Lorri Neilsen Glenn (b. 1947, Winnipeg), Halifax's poet laureate from 2005 to 2009, was living in Halifax, Nova Scotia at the time of publication.

"What do we lose - what should we keep? In this new collection, acclaimed poet Lorri Neilsen Glenn, former poet laureate of Halifax, explores long-held questions about spirituality and place. What are the songs that keep us here? How do we move gracefully in perpetual uncertainty? Central is the poetic sequence 'Songs for Simone' --a troubled conversation between the poet and French mystical philosopher Simone Weil. These are poems of great loss and restless questioning, wring beauty out of potential despair. Lost Gospels confirms Neilsen Glenn as a poet of maturity, depth and power." - from the rear.

Citizens expect to be able to access services of similar standards wherever they live. This raises difficult theoretical and practical issues. How are theneeds of different areas to be measured? How are the different costs of pr oviding services in different parts of the country to be assessed? This book reviews the economic theory that underpins thinking about the problem. Itthen traces the way governments have distributed resources from the end of the last century until today. It critically analyses current methods for t hree services -- the National Health Service, schools, and housing. It draws on a wide range of interviews with those who run the funding system, and those at the receiving end." - from the dj. Vg in dj. 50.00

Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This book describes the rebirth of British military power and hence of the authority of her diplomacy. When England went to war with revolutionary France in 1793 her armywas weak from ten years of neglect of discipline and training, from politi cal interference in the selection of its officers and from the failure of her recruiting policies. To these disadvantages were added a cumbrous systemof political control, divided counsels and inept strategy. The result was defeat in her attempted continental campaigns of 1793–95 and the loss of the respect of both her allies and her enemy. The work of reform began in 1795. From being the least feared of France's principal enemies, the British army became a force capable of winning the victories of the Peninsular War, of making a real and weighty contribution to the overthrow of Napoleon, andof compelling attention to Britain's voice in the Congress of Vienna which created the Europe of the nineteenth century."

Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering tospine. "After a turbulent century of unprecedented social and technologica l change, capitalism has emerged as the dominant ideology and model for economic growth in the richest, most developed countries. Free enterprise is off the leash and chasing new opportunities for profit making across the globe, from U.S. prisons to textile swearshops in Asia. But only thirty years ago economic growth was faltering, inflation rising and the Left were arguing for greater state intervention in industry. How did this remarkable transformation happen? And what price have we paid in the process? This accessible and persuasive book provides a clear and concise history of the problems facing the economies of Europe, Japan and the US during the latter half of the twentieth century and questions whether the restoration of profitability and the re-assertion of market forces has really brought the levels of economic growth and prosperity that were hoped for. Andrew Glyn looks at the impact the rapidly developing economies of China and the South on the more developed economies of the North. He asks: is a "race to the bottom" inevitable as the anti-globalizers predict, with welfare states being dismantled to meet the demands of competitive advantage? Or is there an alternative economic and social model which can achieve more sustainable, equitable andfulfilling outcomes?" (from the dj). Contents : 1. Challenges to capital. 2. Austerity, privatization and deregulation. 3. Finance and ownership. 4. Globalization and international economic relations. 5. Labour's retreats. 6. Growth and stability. 7. Welfare and income inequality. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 35.00

Out of the disordered underground that nourished the F.L.Q., Jacques Godbout tells the story of a student-turned-wanderer who is divided against himself. Half separatist, half pro-Canadian, he meets in turn two beautiful young women who typify the choices open to him : patricia, the daughter of a wealthy Westmount family, and madelaine, the poor French-Canadian working girl. he makes his choice, and murder is the result....

Rather, it is a starting point to enhance professional knowledge of those subjects that affect and influence soldiers’ lives and thinking. All members of the Army are encouraged to use the list, read the titles suggested, and debate these subjects at length. This activity not only improves individual soldiers, but it also helps foster a common understanding and shared knowledge that will make the Army as a whole stronger and more prepared to face the challenges ahead.” - from the Foreword by Col.

"That do ctors may differ has always been a shock to the patient who seeks one voiceof authority when faced with disease and death. But in the young province of Ontario, doctors differed, argued, duelled, fought and even went to jailfor pressing their ideas of the way medicine should be practised. This his tory of how physicians grew in a growing province looks at primitive and scientific medicine as it was taught and practised in cities and hamlets of Ontario. During a century which was marked by epidemics, wars, pestilence and the emergence of a medical establishment, Toronto was almost wiped out bycholera, Kingston staggered under typhus, diphtheria ranged through the no rthland, and a rebellion cut deeply into a profession which was struggling to preserve respectability. The lives of those doctors and the calamities of their patients make fascinating reading when it is realized what happenedled to the glories and disasters of twentieth century medicine."
