Pp 202. 4to, black cloth, gilt title to front; gilt name to spine."This thesis examines international and domestic law relating to pollution from offshore oil and gas operations in the Nova Scotia offshore area. [.. .] Although there is presently no global conventional law dealing specifically with pollution from offshore oil and gas operations, there are general obligations under international customary law and the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention. Canada has a legal framework in place that meets these general requirements. In cases where detailed regulations have not yet been developed, international standards are applied in practice by Canadian regulatory agencies as conditions of approval. The principle of strict liability is incorporated into Canadian law, and procedures for recourse and compensation have been established." -from the Abstract. Very good. 100.00

Egwene, Elayne and Nynaeve are approaching Tar Valon, where Mat will be Healed -- if he lives until they arrive. But who wil tell the Amyrlin their news -- that the Black Ajah, long thought only a hideous rumor, is all too real? They cannot know that in Tar Valon far worse awaits...

JORMAKKA, Kari. Flying Dutchmen : Motion in Architecture. Basel: Birkhäuser- Publishers for Architecture, (2002). First Printing. Pp. (4),[5]-93,(3). Illustrated in colour and black and white. Small 8vo, illustrated white ca rd covers with red and black lettering to front and spine. A volume in The Information Technology Revolution in Architecture series. "Even though Vitruvius includes mobile war machines, clocks, waterworks and other moving constructions in his treatises as well as buildings, architecture has traditionally been understood as an art of space, not of time, and indeed as the very image of stability. Yet the possibility of incorporating change and motion in architecture has fascinated architects since the beginning of the Modern Movement, if not earlier, and reflects an age-old longing to find an architectural expression in step with the most advanced developments of the times. 'Flying Dutchmen' analyses the ways that contemporary Dutch architects have thematized the issue of movement in their buildings and projects. The examples, drawn from the work of OMA / Rem Koolhaas, NOX Architects, Kas Oosterhuis, UN Studio, NL Architects, Bentham Crouwel, Meyer & Van Schooten, Herman Hertzberger and others, illustrated a range of approaches from metaphorical translations of motion into aerodynamic forms to the dynamitization of both the design process and its results through time-based CAAD techniques and new geometries. With a theoretical framework defined by the writings of Bergson, Merleau-Ponty and Deleuze and original observations, Kari Jormakka charts the course for a general theory of motion in architecture and sheds important light on the current state and future prospects of architectural design." - from the rear cover.

"'The columns by the one and only Edith Josie have been gaining in popularity ever since they first beganto appear in the Whitehorse Star in the fall of 1962. She writes of the da ily round in the Indian village of Old Crow, inside the Arctic Circle: of trapping, fishing, hunting, gathering firewood. She writes also of the special events: WA socials, incoming planes, ski and dog-sled races, a fire, a murder, and trips to the outside. [...] Since Miss Josie's columns are reprinted in other newspapers, readers as far away as California are able to follow the news from Old Crow. At first intrigued by Edith's unique style, they are soon caugnt up in the doings of the villagers. They are concerned whetner the caribou are on the mountain, whether the rats (muskrats) are plentifiui, and whetner the mail planes are able to land. They are struck by thecontrast between what is important in Old Crow and what is important in so phisticated circles. [...] The news from Old Crow records a way of life that is gradually changing, however. The coming of "the electric" brought a marked change, as will the projected airport. The outside world is beginning to impinge on the isolated community and its influence is being felt. But there is still no road and the village is far from being a bustling metropolis. Though Edith remarks, somewhat wistfully, "I'll bet if they start to make Old Crow big town, they won't do it," her readers cannot help but be glad that there is still a place where people are "sure glad" about simple pleasures ana elementary blessings." - from the dustjacket.

Oxford University Press, Oxford, New York, Toronto, Melbourne, 1980, ISBN:0192158545 
JOSSELSON, Michael, and Diana JOSSELSON. The Commander : A Life of Barclay de Tolly. Oxford, New York, Toronto, Melbourne : Oxford University Press, 1980. First Edition. Pp (6),vii-ix,(3),[1]-275,(1),+ 8 pp plates. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This is the first tuil-length study of the remarkable man who overcame the handicap of coming from an emigre (Scottish) family settled in Livonia (later divided into Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania), to become a Prince of the Russian Empire, the Russian Minister or War, and in the eyes of many the real architect of Napoleon's defeat in the campaign of 1812. The story covers a number of Napoleonic campaigns and sheds, in particular, new light on the lesser-known fighting in the period between Austerlitz and Friedland and on the Finnish campaign of 1808; it also tries to adjust historical reputations so greatly influenced by Tolstoy's vivid 'historical' portraits in War and Peace. Michael Barclay de Tolly (1761-1818) was brought up in a strict Protestant mould very different from the atmosphere of arbitrariness and indifference which fashioned most of his Russian compatriots and, even though he was entered in the Russian army at six years old and went on active service at fifteen, he always seemed a little apart from the others. He distinguished himself in the Turkish war of 1787, the European campaigns of 1790 onwards and, most spectacularly, in the Finnish war of 1808. As Russian Minister of War he prepared the country for Napoleon's invasion. But it was his position as field commander of the main Russian army during the first part of the 1812 campaign thatbrougtit him his greatest fame, for his judicious strategy, and disgrace, in Russian eyes, for allowing Napoleon to adavance so deep into Russia. Ultimately restored to favour, named Field-Marshal, Commander-in-Chief, and eventually Prince of the Russian Empire, Barclay accompanied the victorious advance of the Allies across Europe, from the Russian border to the triumphal entry into Paris in 1814 and again in 1815."

Guysborough, 1950, 
JOST, A.C. Guysborough Sketches and Essays. Guysborough, Nova Scotia : [Privately Printed], 1950. Pp (2),414,(6). plates. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to front, plain spine. Watters p.695, Morley pp.91-92, Rhodenizer p.563, Vaison p.65, NSIB 90. Arthur Cranswick Jost (b. October 17, 1874, Guysborough, N.S. - d. March 24, 1958 Guysborough, N.S.). Includes several chapters of nautical interest. In "Piracy, Smuggling and Martingot" (pp. 92-97), the early reported cases of piracy in the region would cause one to wonder if any form of settlement or development could be safely conducted, when fishermen were randomly attacked on the open seas, suffering the loss of theircatch, their vessels and often their lives. The numerous small coves and i nlets along the coastline provided a secluded haven for prirates and smugglers exchanging cargoes of bread, corn, sugar and molasses for European wines, brandy, and fish ready for the market. Traffic in these stolen goods often proved difficult for the governments to control. "A Raid" (pp. 98-103) provides the 1776 account by John Paul Jones, Commander of the American shipProvidence, and the attack he led near Canso, NS. Sixteen vessels in all w ere taken as prizes, in addition to the ones destroyed and, in his words "The fishery at Canso and Madame is effectually destroyed.". In "Three Shipwrecks" (pp. 104-108), the loss of three vessels in a two year period along the rocky shoreline is discussed. The Freemason sank near White Haven in February, 1780, with only three survivors. Several months later in the fall of1780, one Lieutenant Prentiss, bearing dispatches from Quebec to New York, was aboard a ship which ran aground off Port Hood while attempting to find a safer passage via the Strait of Canso. The third wreck, in December, 178 1, was the Brittania, a small coaster skippered by Benjamin Marsden, who engaged in carrying trade between Halifax and other Nova Scotian ports. A lengthy description of the hardships he and his crew members endured after running aground near Canso is included New endpapers, cocked, name, else very good. 125.00

JOST, Hans Ulrich, Brandon Brame FORTUNE, William HAUPTMAN. From Liotard toLe Corbusier : 200 Years or Swiss Painting, 1730-1930. With Essays by Hans Ulrich Jost, Brandom Brame Fortune, and William Hauptman. [Foreword by Mas simo Pini. Preface by Hans A. Luthy and Gudmund Vigtel]. (Bern): Swiss Institute for Art Research, 1988. First Printing. Published on the occasion of the exhibition 'From Liotard to Le Corbusier: 200 Years of Swiss Painting, 1730-1930', held at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Georgia, from February9 to April 10, 1988. Pp. (5),6-191,(1). Illustrated in colour. Large squar e 8vo, grey cloth with white lettering to spine. "The 65 paintings compiledin this volume, covering a period of 200 years of Swiss painting, were ori ginally assembled for an exhibition held at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. While artistic achievement seems to play no part at all in the popular image of Switzerland, the present publication furnishes proof of the contrary. The works, each accompanied by a short entry, were selected by the responsible staff of the museum of Atlanta on the advice of their colleages from the Swiss Institute for Art Research. They give evidence of a broad and fascinating spectrum of artistic production in Switzerland between 1730 and 1930. At the same time, the book is a valuable source of scholarly information. Its three introductory essays deal not only with the paintings, but also, for example, with the difficulties of being an artist in a small country with four national languages and regional cultural and economic differences which prevent the existence of a single national identity." - from the dustjacket. With the following essays: Jost's "Nation, Politics, and Art", Fortune's "Painting in America and Switzerland 1770-1870: Preliminaries for a Comparative Study", and Hauptman's "The Swiss Artist and the European Context: Some Notes on Cross-Cultural Politics". Includes examples by the following artists: Giuseppe Antonio Petrini, Jean-Etienne Liotard, Angelika Kauffmann, Jacques Sablet, Jean-Pierre Saint-Ours, Johann Heinrich Fussli, Louis Ducros, Caspar Wolf, Johann Heinrich Wuest, Wolfgang-Adam Topffer, Jacques-Laurent Agasse, Leopold Robert, Charles Gleyre, Francois Diday, Alexandre Calame, Karl Girardet, Robert Zund, Johann Jakob Ulrich, Barthelemy Menn,Francois Bocion, Frank Buchser, Arnold Bocklin, Albert Anker, Ferdinand Ho dler, Max Buri, Felix Vallotton, Giovanni Segantini, Giovanni Giacometti, Cuno Amiet, Augusto Giacometti, Paul Klee, and Le Corbusier.

28066 JOUBERT de la FERTE, Philip Third Service : The Story behind the Royal Air Force. First Edition in dustjacket

JOUBERT de la FERTÉ, Philip, Sir, Air Chief Marshal. The Third Service : The Story behind the Royal Air Force. London : Thames and Hudson, (1955). First Edition. Pp (4),v-xii,1-274,(2), frontispiece + 22 pp plates. Line drawings in text. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine, gilt publisher's logo to front board. "This ie first book about the Royal Air Force which is not content with the surface history of the Service. It explores the ceaseless clash of personalities and views that in the opinion of the author has played an important part in the formation of the third British fighting service. As a document it is undoubtedly unique; the Royal Air Force has won itsindependence entirely within the first half of this century and the person al memories of the protagonists have helped to interpret and supplement written records. No such detailed evidence is available for study where the origins of the other two services are concerned. Sir Philip Joubert, who is known to millions all over the world for his eloquence in broadcasting during the war, is especially qualified to write this book. In his service career he has spanned the whole history of the Royal Air Force and has known themajority of the officers and statesmen who have fought the "battle of Whit ehall". In addition to this he has had access to War Office and Air Ministry documents, and has received much valuable information from the true founder of the R.A.F., Lord Trenchard. He presents an interesting picture of many great men who have now become almost legendary and softens an unsparing criticism of their policy with many an anecdote of the early, more carefree days; at the same time he is quick to recognize true worth when he sees it.This book is a major contribution both to the history of the Royal Air For ce and also to the study of British Governmental policy in the twentieth century."

Patricia Joudry (b. October 18, 1921, Spirit River, Alberta - d. October 28, 2000, Powell River, British Columbia), Canadian writer. "In a gabled house by the sea, on the Pacificcoast of Canada, two young lovers discover one another in the bittersweet ecstasy of first love. For Hedleigh, as sheltered and grping as Cecilia is fierce and sure, there is the long journey to be made from protected childhood into the pain and separateness of self-discovery. For Cecilia, the supreme individual, who inspires and urges him on, there is less choice, as sheis thrust out of human society by the dark fate which follows her, and dra ws her forward. The search for a synthesis between selfhood and unity with others is as old as man's existence. Patricia Joudry has captured the dilemma of the human heart, and unveiled the spiritual forces that guide its joys and agonies, in lyrical and haunting prose saturated with the feel of seaand sand. It is a brilliant first novel that burst with life and intense b eauty, and will have a special meaning for every reader whose awareness hasexpanded beyond the everyday." - front dj flap.

"The half-century from 1800 to 1851 was one of the most important and influentialperiods of design and evelopment in the history of English furniture. At t he start of the nineteenth century the influence of Hepplewhite and Sheraton was at its height and the next fifty years saw the flowering of the Regency style, the Classical and Gothic revivals and the evolution of Victorian taste culminating in the Great Exhibition of 1851. The stylistic developments of the period are considered in detail, and attention is given to the individual work of the important furniture designers. Furniture-making is dealth with in its widest aspects: the author discusses patent furniture, a rapidly expanding field at this time, and there are chapters on work from theprovinces, the economic structure of the industry, the materials and techn iques, and the export trade, which now proves to have been of considerable extent and influence." - from the dustjacket.
