A very nice copy of Jane's classic technical history of the Royal Navy: "This book is not intended to be a 'history' of the British Navy in the generally accepted sense of the term. For this reason small space is devoted to various strategical and tactical matters of the past which generally bulk largely in more regular 'naval histories'- of which a sufficiency already exist. ...In such histories primary interest naturally attaches to what the admirals did with the ships provided for them. Here I have sought rather to deal with how the ships came to be provided, and how they were developed from the crude warships of the past to the intricate and complicated machines of to-day; and the strictly 'history' part of the book is compressed with that idea principally in view. The 'live end' of naval construction is necessarily that which directly or indirectly concerns the ships of our own time. The warships of the past are of special interest in so far as they were steps to the warships of to-day; but, outside that, practical interest seems confined to what led to these 'steps' being what they were." -from the Preface.

JANES, Percy. House of Hate. Toronto and Montreal : McClelland and Stewart Limited, (1970). First Edition. Pp (8),9-320. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine.

O'Dea 4558,DNLB pp.175-6, ENL III:98-99, Spadoni & Donnely 2182, Laugher p.261.

Percy Maxwell Janes (b. March 12, 1922, St. John's, Newfoundland - d. February 19, 1999, St. John's, Newfoundland).

"With great skill and sensitivity, Percy Janes has written what in time will be regarded as a classic of its kind. In this, his first novel, the author's childhood and early manhood in a small milltown on Newfoundland's West Coast are dramatized and he presents a collective portrait of a labouring family between the two world wars.

'This book is a work of fiction, a work of art, in a very real sense,' Percy Janes writes. 'It is based on my own family experience, but I have added, subtracted, altered, arranges, and invented, in order to stress the theme of my novel, which is the destructive force of hate within a family.'

"Percy Janes writes directly about his father in the character of Saul Stone - a man as hard as his name; with warmth about his mother, Gertrude; and with mingled fascination and regret about his four brothers, each of whom in his own way succumbed to the force of hate within this family; and about his sister, who somehow managed to escape these horrors. Seldom has an author dealt so openly with his early years. House of Hate is about overpowering pain and the perception of the himan condition that pain brings with it." - from the dustjacket.

McClelland and Stewart Limited, Toronto / Montreal , 1970,

O'Dea 4558, DNLB pp.175-6, ENL III:98-99, Spadoni & Donnely 2182, Laugher p.261. "With great skill and sensitivity, Percy Janes has written what in time will be regarded as a classic of its kind. In this, his first novel, the author's childhood and early manhood in a small milltown on Newfoundland's West Coast are dramatized and he presents a collective portrait of a labouring family between the two world wars. " 'This book is a work of fiction, a work of art, in a very real sense,' Percy Janes writes. 'It is based on my own family experience, but I have added, subtracted, altered, arranges, and invented, in order to stress the theme of my novel, which is the destructive force ofhate within a family.' "Percy Janes writes directly about his father in th e character of Saul Stone - a man as hard as his name; with warmth about his mother, Gertrude; and with mingled fascination and regret about his four brothers, each of whom in his own way succumbed to the force of hate withinthis family; and about his sister, who somehow managed to escape these hor rors. Seldom has an author dealt so openly with his early years. House of Hate is about overpowering pain and the perception of the himan condition that pain brings with it." - from the dust-jacket. Name, small stain to fore-edge, else very good in rubbed unclipped dustjacket (with wear to corners, folds, and spine ends of dustjacket). 45.00
