George Allen & Unwin, London, 1954, 
LE GOLIF, Louis. The Memoirs of a Buccaneer: Being a Wondrous and Unrepentant Account of the Prodigious Adventures and Amours of King Louis XIV's Loyal Servant Louis Adhemar Timothee LeGolif known for his singular wound as Borgnefesse Captain of the Buccaneers Told By Himself. Edited by G. Alaux andA. T'Serstevens, Translated by Malcolm Barnes. London: George Allen & Unwi n, (1954). First Printing. Pp. [1]-235,(5). Illustrated with black and white frontispiece. 8vo, blue cloth with silver lettering to spine. "According to the editors, three bulky handwritten volumes, partly damaged by fire andexposure, were found with other papers in a half-burnt chest. It took the finders much trouble to piece the work together, but when the ornate writing and strange orthography had been deciphered, it proved to be no less thanthe memoirs of a 17th century French buccaneer, who sailed for "the Americ an islands" as a young man and returned to St. Malo many years later, enriched by the booty he had taken from the Spaniards. His name was Louis-Adhemar-Timothee le Golif, and he was known as 'Borgnefesse' because he had lost the flesh of one buttock in a fight. His narrative was encumbered by a great deal of matter of little interest to modern readers. Thus the editors excised and what remains is a fascinating, exciting and often hilarious tale of private life - of voyaging among the tropical islads, of fights at sea and raids upon the towns of New Spain, of plundering, seduction, duelling, rapine, feasting, and drinking - a tale that will hold the reader enthralled from the first word to the last. Nothing like this picturesque document hasever before come to light. Borgnefesse, its author, with all his boasting and bluster, and his amorous dealings with the Spanish ladies, is a magnificent and lovable character, whom no reader will ever forget." -from the dj.Very good in lightly rubbed, nicked, unclipped dustjacket.

31110 LE GRAND, Julian. Motivation, Agency, and Public Policy : Of Knights and Knaves, Pawns and Queens.

LE GRAND, Julian. Motivation, Agency, and Public Policy : Of Knights and Knaves, Pawns and Queens. (Oxford) : Oxford University Press, (2003). Second Printing. Pp [i]-xi,(2),[1]-191,(3). Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “Can we rely on the altruism of professionals or the public service ethos to deliver good quality health and education services? And how should patients, parents, and pupils behave - as grateful recipients or active consumers? This book provides new answers to these questions - a milestone in the analysis and development of public policy, from one of the leading thinkers in the field. It provides a new perspective on policy design, emphasising the importance of analysing the motivation of professionals and others who work within the public sector, and both their and public service beneficiaries' capacity for agency or independent action. It argues that the conventional assumption that public sector professionals are public-spirited altruists or 'knights' is misplaced; but so is the alternative that they are all, in David Hume's terminology, 'knaves' or self-interested egoists. We also must not assume that individual citizens are passive recipients of public services (pawns); but nor can they be untrammelled sovereigns withunrestricted choices over services and resources (queens). Instead, polici es must be designed so as to give the proper balance of motivation and agency. The book illustrates how this can be done by detailed empirical examination of recent policies in health services, education, social security and taxation. It puts forwards proposals for policy reform, several of which either originated with the author or with which he has been closely associated: universal capital or 'demogrants', discriminating vouchers, matching grants for pensions and for long-term care, and hypothecated taxes." - from the dj.

31115 LE MARCHANT, Josue Recueil de Maximes, de Pensees et de Reflexions. Channel Islands Rarity

LE MARCHANT, Josué. Recueil de Maximes, de Pensées et de Refléxions. [St. Peter Port,] Guernesey: T. Rognon, 1776. 1l. + t.p. + (v)-xviii + (19)-258 +1l: "fautes d'impression." Sm 8vo, orig. full calf (worn). 15.2 cm.

A CHANNEL ISLANDS INCUNABLE.

The earliest recorded imprint of the Island of Guernsey, and the (?) second earliest recorded imprint of the Channel Islands. The ESTC records one location, British Museum: "Imperfect: wanting the half title?" [i.e.: wanting preliminary blank leaf and errata leaf at end.]

The chief librarian, Dr. H. Tomlinson, of the Priaulx Library, St Peter Port, informs us: "I thought that the book was quite rare but I see from our records that we hold nine copies in this library."

The Le Marchant family was extremely influential on the island during the eighteenth-century, having provided four Bailiffs (or Chief Citizens) during that time. It is possible that this Josué was one who was rector of St. Peter Port around the time of the publication of the book.

Inscribed by a former owner, "Marie Paint/ 4eme de Septembre 1818/ Gaspé" [Province of Quebec]. The circumstances of the voyage to Gaspé by Nicholas and Marie Paint (née Le Mesurier) are matters of the history of the commercial association of the Gaspé cod fishers and Channel Islanders. Nicholas Paint was also appointed Justice of the Peace for Cape Breton Island in 1820.

The 1790 felony involving the printing equipment formerly belonging to Rognon is also a matter of historical record. Rognon himself was arrested (and charged?) with the arson which destroyed the printing office and equipment, as well as destroying a store.

Excessively rare[but for the (?) remainder of copies preserved in the Priaulx Library]. Worn through at corners and spine ends, covers rubbed with a short surface tear, lacking both front and rear free endpapers, minor pencil marks to a couple of pages, previous owner's inscription (see above), else a very good, internally bright copy, with the front blank leaf and errata leaf. 5,000.00

The Canadian author's second collection of poetry, which won the 1953 Governor-General's Award, "draws largely upon his experiences with the 1st Field Regiment, R.C.H.A. in eighteen months of the Italian campaign. On such a battleground the poet's reflections must be full of contrasts' and there are many to be found in these poems. The dusty Italian countryside, shattered by war, is set against the solitude and freshness of Canadian woodlands; the stately grandeur of a classical past is seen behind the present destruction and decay; the terminology of modern scientific war jarswith the language and the imagery of poetry; the mutilation and futility o f dead humanity stands out sharply against the courage and vigour of the living, [...] - from the dj. The Poems: "Tuscan Villa", " Persimmons", " Reconnaissance in Early Light", " An Incident", " The Net and the Sword", " Oneof the Regiment", " Lines for a Combatant", " An Effect of Illumination", " The New Vintage", "The Peacock", " Field of Battle", " The Nimbus", " Interval with Halcyons", " Meditation after an Engagement", " The Lost Crusader", " Legend", " Lion, Leopard, Lady", " A Man of Honour", "In a Spring Night ", "Elegy in the Romagna", and "Daybreak".

31173 LEACOCK, Stephen. SPADONI, Carl My Recollection of Chicago and The Doctrine of Laissez Faire
University of Toronto Press, Toronto / Buffalo / London, 1998, ISBN:0802081215 
LEACOCK, Stephen. My Recollection of Chicago and The Doctrine of Laissez Faire. Toronto, Buffalo, London: University of Toronto Press, 1998. First Printing. Pp (6),[vii]-xliv,(2),[3]-126, (6). 8vo, butterscotch-y cardcovers. "Disillusioned by the general drudgery of hus job, Stephen Leacock resignedfrom his teaching position at Upper Canada College in 1899 to pursue gradu ate studies. 'At Chicago,' Leacock wrote wryly, 'they made a genial pretense that I was fit for the graduate school in economics. It is a little hard to see why, except that I was obviously not fit to die.' Leacock graduated from the university in 1903. Carl Spadoni's discovery of his dissertation, previously thought to be lost, and unread since Leacock defended it - givesreaders a unique opportunity to re-examine Leacock' philosophies. 'The Doc trine of Laissez Faire' reveals the early roots of his skepticism about political economy, on which his later works of humour fed. In it, Leacock attempts to demystify the dogmatic opposition to state intervention.based on this economic precept. [...] My Recollection of Chicago is a short essay in which he reminisces on his graduate years in Chicago." Very good. 12.00
