MAYNARD, Kenneth. Lamb's Mixed Fortunes. London : Weidenfeld and Nicolson, (1987). First Edition. Pp (6),1-193,(5). 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering tospine. “Claiming his prize money and reviving his love affair with the bea utiful Charlotte Brett are Lieutenant Matthew Lamb's priorities when the Adroit at last returns to England from the Caribbean. But a few hours on landprove to be as unpredictable as duty at sea under the irascible Captain Sl ade, although Lamb's disappointments are not without their equally surprising compensations. The Adroit must join Admiral Lord Keith's fleet for Egyptto oust Bonaparte's army and, outside Alexandria, the naval brigade plays part against the might of General Menou's army on one of the bloodiest and saddest days Lamb has known. And via Constantinople, where romantic intrigue at the home of the Ambassador, Lord Elgin, is not without its attendant dangers, Lamb finds the return journey to England demands a much higher price than any previous adventure of his career. In this fourth story of Matthew Lamb, Kenneth Maynard once again captured the essence of early nineteenth-century life on land and at sea, and brought to it his distinctive flair for detail and an engaging sense of humour. Kenneth Maynard spent five yearswith the Royal Corps of Signals and lived in Egypt, France and New Zealand . He died shortly after completing Lamb's Mixed Fortunes, his fourth novel.” - from the dj.

MAYNARD, Patrick. The Engine of Visualization : Thinking Through Photography. Ithaca and London : Cornell University Press, (1997). First Printing. Pp(7),viii-xv,(3),[3]-331,(3). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, green cloth spine, p ale green paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. "In this philosophical text on photography, Patrick Maynard attempts to dispel some of the basic persistent confusions of thought by treating photography as a technology - a way to enhance and filter human power. Once photography is understoodas a kind of technology, Maynard suggests, insights about technology may b e applied to provide the general perspective on photography which has been missing. Photography extends our human ability to produce images, which areunderstood as surface markings - here induced by light. Through an approac h to photography which he intends as both analytic and consistently sensitive to photo-history, Maynard places photography among modern imaging technologies, such as those familiar in medicine, and addresses some provocative questions. Technologies amplify but they also suppress, he says. What does photography suppress? How should we think about depictive fidelity? What problems do the new digital technologies bring in their wake? What accounts for the persistent ambivalence regarding photographic art? Although Maynard's particular focus is photography, much of his discussion seeks to illuminate issues concerning other technologies and other kinds of images." (from the dj).

[...] There is little wonder then that convivality is a lost art and that in consequence the making of drinking songs has suffered a bad decline." - from the introduction.

35615 MAYNE, Roger) HAWORTH-BOOTH, Mark Street Photographs of Roger Mayne
Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 1986, ISBN:185177002X 
(MAYNE, Roger). The Street Photographs of Roger Mayne. An Exhibition held in the Photo Gallery of the Henry Cole Wing from 26 February to 31 May 1986.(London) : Victoria and Albert Museum, (1986). Pp (4),5-88. Illustrated in black-and-white. 4to, illustrated white card covers, lettered in black. "R oger Mayne is one of Britain's major photographers and this is the most complete book of his work yet published. Born in Cambridge in 1929, Roger Mayne's great period was the 1950s and 60s. He photographed the street life of London and captured its vigour, colour and psychological complexity. This coincided with the London novels of Colin Maclnnes, one of the most eloquentchampions of Mayne's work. The book charts the early influences on Roger M ayne (Cartier-Bresson, Paul Strand and W. Eugene Smith), presents his earlyabstract hotographs - some of which form a homage to the St Ives School of painters - and features the subject he made his own: North Kensington, the streets of London's W.10. Mayne photographed in one street - Southam Stree t (now demolished) — for five years from 1956-61. This rich essay has no rivals in the history of photography and the photographs become more poignantand absorbing as each year passes. Mayne's heroes and heroines are the chi ldren of the later 1950s. The Museum's Curator of Photographs, Mark Haworth-Booth, contributes an essay which describes the Southam Street project andilluminates a chapter of British photographic history."

Illustrated. 4to, tan cloth. "Histories of anatomy exist in sufficient quantity, so this essay revolves around two questions only: What havo artists done to record dissections andso help anatomists to see? And what, in turn, have anatomists discovered t o help artists in portraying man's body? These questions center on the everlasting preoccupation of Western art, which is the study of man. They are part of one question today when some artists and all doctors study anatomy for structure and action, but before the Renaissance anatomists and artists were aware of each other only in oddly indirect ways.' Thus Hyatt Mayor introduced his manuscript on "Artists & Anatomists." written about 1954 at theurging ol colleagues and friends after he had assembled an exhibition on t his subject. His essay, in twenty-three sections, is concerned with the interrelation of art and anatomy from ancient times to the present. The scope is broad, extending from antiquity through the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and up to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with observations on the Far and Near East, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo,Raphael, Diirer, Berengario da Carpi, Vesalius, Rembrandt, Rodin, Eakins, Picasso, Tchelitchew and Dali, among others.

(Oxford) : Archaeopress, (2007). First Printing. Pp. (4),iii-x,1-256. Illustrated, largely in colour. 8vo, photo-illustrated black card covers with white lettering to front cover and spine. "Enigmatic, esoteric and fascinating, the rock-art of the British Isles has for a long time been a well kept secret at home and abroad. However, dedicated work by rock-art researchers over the last few decades has seen the discovery of hundreds of new panels and the publication of several high quality regional surveys and numerous survey reports and academic articles, and the creation of ahighly successful world-class website on Northumberland rock-art. British rock-art arrived on the world stage. Drawing on these exciting developments, this volume brings together a carefully selected collection of papers that cover British prehistoric rock-art from over 10000 years ago. Some topicsaddressed include: recent discoveries of Palaeolithic cave art and probabl e Mesolithic inscriptions; new perspectives on Neolithic-Early Bronze Age and Pictish rock-art; regional studies on the rock-art of Cumbria, Northumberland, North Yorkshire and South West Britain; relationships between rock-art and ritual and funerary monuments and between rock-art and landscape; experiential approaches to understanding passage grave art within chambered tombs; the history of British rock-art research.

McADAM, Colin. Fall. (Toronto) : Hamish Hamilton Canada, (2009). First Printing. Pp (10),[11]-358,(10), 8vo, brown cloth, copper lettering to spine. Colin McAdam (b. 1971, Hong Kong). "A place of pressure and contradictions, St Ebury is an exclusive boarding school for the children of Canadas elite,where boys must act as men while navigating their adolescence; a mixed sch ool with only a handful of girls. "Fall is the most beautiful. At night thebathrooms and beds hum with thoughts of her. Noel, a clever, ghostly loner , prowls the corridors on weekends, filling spare hours working on his body-building. Watching her, always knowing where she is and who shes talking to, he is certain that one day Fall will come to know him deeply. But like everyone else, she is drawn to Julius, the confident and magnetic son of theAmerican ambassador to Canada. At the beginning of their final year, the t wo boys room together and awkward Noel believes he is allowed into a new circle of friends. Julius grows physically closer to Fall, his eyes open to the moments around him, while Noels boisterous enthusiasm shades into something darker as he imagines himself as a confidante to his popular roommate. While Julius moves through the daily joys and absurdities of adolescence, Noel recounts from a distance of several years what the consequences were ofhis efforts to enter Falls life forever. A disturbing and unforgettable st ory of guilt, memory and confused identity, Colin McAdams second novel is awork of power, pitchperfect observation and searing ambition. It confirms his status as a truly unique talent, one of the few living novelists capable of taking the modern novel and forging from it something startling and wholly new." - from the jacket.

Over the years the church has beena prominent fixture of the community, generating a wealth of pictorial and documentary references, many of which fortunately have survived. Thus, and despite a history of modifications, St. Paul's, today, remains an importan t building both in terms of the history of Halifax architecture and of churches built in the New World in the Wren-Gibbs traditions." -from the rear cover.

Index. 8vo, tan cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Throughout the nineteenth century there were many, including scholars, who believed that tne peoples of Polynesia were doomed to extinction. The reasons suggested for the supposedly dramatic declines in population numbers were many and varied, but few authors questioned the reality of the declines or their universality. In this book a demographer reappraises the basic estimates and counts of some of these populations, setting them in the context of contemporary knowledge and events, in an attempt to trace the demographic fortunes of these island populations in the years before 1956, the year in which censuses were taken simultaneously and more or less uniformly for all but one of these island groups. The book contains much new and hitherto unpublished material, gleaned from such diverse sources as the letters and journals of missionaries in the nineteenth century and contemporary registers of births and deaths. Not only is it an important work of reference for all scholars concerned with these island populations but it is of value to anyone interested in the history or future development of these isianas."

MCBRIDE, Stephen. Not Working : State, Unemployment, and Neo-Conservatism in Canada. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (1992). Pp. (7), viii-ix, (4), 4-259, (3). 8vo, illustrated tan card covers. The State and Economic Life series. "Unemployment is once again a pernicious and growing fact of life in Canada. Stephen McBride rejects economic interpretations of the return of high unemployment after decades in which Canada enjoyed almost full employment. He argues that the phenomenon can best be understood as the product of a political choice by policy makers - a choice which can plausibly belinked to the preferences and growing power of Canadian business in the po st-1975 period. This arguement is based on an evaluation of the implications of the monetarist economic paradigm whose influence grew in the late 1970s, a comparative survey of the policy strategies followed in other countries and the employment outcomes associated with them, and a systematic examination of Canadian public policy in the macroeconomic, labour market, unemployment insurance, and industrial relations areas. McBride's analysis reveals the state's increasing emphasis on addressing the accumulation demands ofcapital and a decreasing emphasis on the provision of concrete benefits (s uch as full employment and social services) to citizens. Much state activity can be understood as an attempt to legitimate by ideological means the change in the state's priorities and the shifting balance of benefits conferred by public policy. Thus the Canadian state has played an important role in managing the return to a high unemployment regime." -- from the introductory preamble. Very good. 15.00

Double column. 4to, pale blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. The 'Natural History', the life work of the English naturalist and artist Mark Catesby (1682-1749), the most important precursor of Audubon, was twenty years in the making, from 1729 to 1749. It was the first comprehensive study of the flora and fauna of the eastern seaboard of North America, and its beautifully finished, often striking images remained an indispensible reference source throughout the centruy of its publication. Published here for the first time are the original watercolors from which Catesby prepared the etchings which accompanied his published volumes. Having been stored away from thelight bewteen the pages of a unique copy of the book in the Royal Library at Windsor, which King GEorge III bought in 1768, they are wonderfully fresh, and communicate all the enthusiasm of the pioneer naturalist amazed by the colors and variety of the new species of birds, fish, mammals, reptiles,insects and plants he was documenting (some of them now extinct)." - from the dustjacket.

James Cyril McCaffery (b. November 15, 1924, South Dunwich, near Port Talbot and St. Thomas, Ontario - d. February, 1998).

"When James Cyril McCaffery joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and headed off to the Second World War, he expected a rollicking adventure. What he experienced instead was the absolute worst of aerial combat - in all its violence and danger. He served his country bravely but came back forever changed.

Dad's War is about a son's quest to learn about his father's wartime experiences, and to truly understand the meaning of his sacrifice. Based on years of tireless research, as well asd lengthy interviews with his father and the people who served with him, acclaimed aviation author Dan McCaffery has been able to piece together his father's career as a tail gunner in Bomber Command. Gunner McCaffery participated in many of the best-known and most controversial actions of the war, including the raid that created the firestorm that destroyed Dresden and killed tens of thousands of civilians.

Unlike many of Canada's airmen in Bomber Command, McCaffery survived his tour of duty - without ever firing his guns in combat. Dad's War reveals a compelling and emotionally honest look at the horrors of war, and the story of an inexperienced Canadian teenager struggling to cope with the conflict between his beliefs and what he is being asked to do in the name of duty." - from dustjacket.

(McCAIN, John Sidney). GILBERT, Alton Keith. A Leader Born : The Life of Admiral John Sidney McCain, Pacific Carrier Commander. Philadelphia : Casemate, (2006). First Printing. Pp [i]-xiii,(1),1-274 + 16 pages of b&w photos. 8vo, dark-grey paper-covered boards, gilt lettering to spine.

Admiral John Sidney McCain (b. August 9, 1884, Teoc, Carroll County, Mississippi – d. September 6, 1945, Coronado, California).

Alton Keith Gilbert (b. ca 1930).

With a Foreword by his grandson, Senator John McCain.

"John S. 'Slew' McCain was an old-school sailor. Wiry, profane, a cusser and a gambler, he was also a pioneer in the hard-hitting naval tactics that brought Imperial Japan to its knees.

After rising through the blue water Navy, McCain switched to naval aviation in middle-age, as he espied the aircraft carrier as the future front-line of seaborne operations. After the Japanese verified this concept at Pearl Harbor, it was fortunate for America that men like McCain were fully prepared to reply in kind.

In 1942 McCain was made commander of all land-based aircraft during the epic campaign for Guadalcanal. Though he took his share of blame for the setbacks, he counterattacked with every means at his disposal, at one point of commandeering the planes of the crippled carriers Enterprise and Saratoga to reinforce U.S. strength for eventual victory.

Throughout World War II, McCain prioritized fighters and single-seat divebombers as the best weapons to directly attack the enemy. By the time American forces returned to the Philippines, McCain was leading a fast carrier task force under William 'Bull' Halsey. When asked what he thought about his carrier commander, Halsey replied, 'Not much more than my right arm.'

At the Philippines, Okinawa, and finally up to the very coastline of Japan, McCain's carrier group destroyed thousands of enemy planes and hundreds of ships with aggressive, swarming tactics. When the Empire formally surrendered on the battleship Missouri, McCain was in the first row of U.S. officers looking on.

After Japan surrendered on September 2, 1945, McCain flew back to his home in the U.S., and died in his bed the next day - perhaps from heart failure but more probably from exhaustion. His name has lived on, however, through his son, John S. McCain II, who became commander of U.S. naval forces in the Pacific, 1968-72, and his grandson, John S. McCain III, a carrier pilot whose gallantry became a great source of pride during the Vietnam War.

In this book, Alton Keith Gilbert has provided the first full biography of Admiral John 'Slew' McCain, as well as a fascinating accpount of U.S. carrier operations in the Pacific War. An unconventional warrior, McCain's career was marked by courage and innovation, as he emerged from World War II as one of Americas greatest combat leaders." - from the dj.

With a Foreword by his grandson, Senator John McCain.
