Early imm igrants to Canada often arrived in their new home unprepared for the severity of the North American climate. The first Loyalist refugees and later Scottish, Irish, German, Polish and French-Canadian settlers brought relatively little bedding to protect themselves from the cold. they did bring, however, their homeland weaving and quilting traditions. While their husbands and fathers were clearing and cultivating the land, Upper Canadian women produced bedding to keep their families warm." - from the dustjacket. Contents:1.

Illustrated. Index. Powell-Murray Family Tree to endpapers. 8vo, blue cloth, silver lettering to spine. “Anne Murray Powell was born to a middle-class English family in 1755. She was neither famous nor unusually talented but her story embodies the values of her time, place, and class. Having emigrated to Boston at sixteen, in 1775 she married and returned to England during her husband's training as a lawyer. They eventually settled in British North America, residing chiefly in York (Toronto). Anne, as well as being the mother of nine children, was a leading figure in York's social circles a member of a generation thatmatured during a period of dramatic social change. Katherine McKenna's bio graphy, based on an extensive collection of letters and papers, shows how the three distinct environments in which she and her family lived England, New England, and Upper Canada were shaped by important aspects of late eighteenth-century and early Victorian society. During this period the realms ofthe public and the private became increasingly separated, with increasingl y separate roles for men and women. Changes in cultural values concerning gender, ideals about family relationships, and ideas of the appropriate rolewomen brought uncertainty, confusion, and contradiction. Anne Powell's lif e embodied this shift in values and provides an example of how they were carried from the old world to the new.” (from the dj). Very good in dustjacket. 50.00

McKenny was born on March 21, 1785, in Hopewell, Maryland[disambiguation needed]. He was the oldest of five boys was raised and received his education at Chestertown, Maryland. McKenney was a Quaker which influenced his approach to interactions with Native Americans. After the abolishment of the U.S. Indian Trade program in 1822, then Secretary of War John C. Calhoun created a position without legislation within the War Department entitled Superintendent of Indian Affairs (this later became part of the Bureau of Indian Affairs).

McKenney was an advocate of the American Indian “civilization” program and became an avid promoter of Indian removal west of the Mississippi River. President Andrew Jackson dismissed McKenney from his position in 1830 when Jackson disagreed with his opinion that “the Indian was, in his intellectual and moral structure, our equal.” McKenney died in New York Cityin February 1859."

36435 McKILLOP, A.B Disciplined Intelligence : Critical Inquiry and Canadian Thought in the Victorian Era. First Edition. Signed presentation copy.

McKILLOP, A.B. A Disciplined Intelligence : Critical Inquiry and Canadian Thought in the Victorian Era. Montreal : McGill-Queen's University Press, (1979). First Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-xii,[1]-287,(5). 8vo, ill. purple cloth.

"In thls highly original contribution to Canadian intellectual history, Professor McKillop examines the course of critical inquiry and its relationship to the assertion of moral authority in English-Canadian thought during the Victorian era. Concentrating upon the thought of Canada's major scientists, philosophers, and clerics—men such as William Dawson and Daniel Wilson,John Watson and W. D. LeSueur, G. M. Grant and Salem Bland—the book begins by reconstructing the central strands of intellectual and moral orthodoxy prevalent in Anglo-Canadian colleges on the eve of the Darwinian revolution. These included the Scottish Common Sense philosophy and the natural theology of William Paley. The destructive impact of evolutionary ideas on that orthodoxy and the major exponents of the new forms of social evolution—Spencerian and Hegelian alike—are examined in detail. By the twentieth century,the heart of Anglo-Canadian thought had been transformed by what had become a new, evolutionary orthodoxy. The legacy of this triumphant intellectual movement, that of British idealism, was immense. It helped to destroy Protestant denominationalism, to provide the philosophical core of the social gospel movement, and to constitute a major force behind the creation of the United Church of Canada. Throughout the nineteenth century and continuing into the twentieth, however, the moral imperative in Anglo-Canadian thought remained a constant presence. Several figures who today dominate the intellectual landscape of the country may be seen as inheritors of this tradition. " - p.[i].

Index. 8vo, illustrated bluecard covers. "An astonishing narrative of disaster and perseverance, The L ast Voyage of the Karluk will thrill readers of adventure classics like Into Thin Air and The Climb. In 1913, explorer Vilhjalmur Stefansson hired William McKinlay to join the crew of the Karluk, the leading ship of his new Arctic expedition. Stefansson`s mission was to chart the waters north of Alaska; yet the Karluk`s crew was untrained, the ship was ill-suited to the icy conditions, and almost at once the Karluk was crushed-at which point Stefansson abandoned his crew to continue his journey on another ship. This is the only firsthand account of what followed: a nightmare struggle in which half the crew perished, one was mysteriously shot, and the rest were near death by the time of their rescue twelve months later. Written some sixty years after the fact, and drawing extensively on his own daily log, McKinlay`s narrative of this doomed expedition is rendered with remarkable clarity of recollection, and with a combination of horror and a level of self-possession that, to modern eyes, may seem incredible. Like most of his companions, McKinlay was inexperienced, without a day`s training in the skills essential to survival in the Arctic. Yet he and many of his fellow crewmen, with the help of an Eskimo family accustomed to such conditions, survived a yearunder the harshest of conditions, enduring 80-mile-per-hour gales and temp eratures well below zero with only the barest of provisions and almost no hope of contact with civilization. Nearly a century later, this remains one of the most compelling survival stories ever written-an extraordinary testament to man`s overpowering will to live." - from the back cover.

Douglas Loch head, General Editor. "Alexander McLachlan is an eminent though neglected figure in early Canadian literature, and this reprint brings to the attention of Canadians today his representative work. Edward Hartley Dewart, editorof the original edition published in 1900, recognized the importance of Mc Lachlan's poetry as an integral part of Canada's cultural development. In his estimation McLachlan ranked second only to Charles Sangster. McLachlan, a Scot, emigrated to Canada West in 1840; his poetry reflects graphically teh griefs and loneliness of pioneer struggles in an alien land. He was frequently called 'the Burns of Canada', andhis style and emphasis on the democratic theme of brotherhood certainly reveal the influence of the Scottish poet. In lifestyle, however, McLachlan was more consciously Carlylean, assuming the role of 'man of letters' in an efort to elevate the whole tone of man's thinking and to raise the cultural level of Canada. he was highly regarded -- in its obituary notice the Guelph Evening Mercury discerned in him 'a true streak of poetic fire'. Many of McLachlan's early poems have nostalgic echoes of Scottish songs. In later years he responded fully to the bracing beauties of the Canadian landscape and to the social and political challenges of the 'New Dominion'. The Scottish dialect gave way to a Canadian backwoods one, which proved effective in humourously satirizing the pretensions of the growing society." - from the rear cover. Very good. 20.00

McLACHLAN, Alexander. The Poetical Works of Alexander McLachlan. Introduction by E. Margaret Fulton. Toronto: University of Toronto Press, (1974). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-xxiii,(5),[1]-448,(4). 8vo, mustard cloth, blacklettering to spine. Literature of Canada: Poetry and Prose in Reprint, vol ume 13. Douglas Lochhead, General Editor. "Alexander McLachlan is an eminent though neglected figure in early Canadian literature, and this reprint brings to the attention of Canadians today his representative work. Edward Hartley Dewart, editor of the original edition published in 1900, recognized the importance of McLachlan's poetry as an integral part of Canada's cultural development. In his estimation McLachlan ranked second only to Charles Sangster. McLachlan, a Scot, emigrated to Canada West in 1840; his poetry reflects graphically teh griefs and loneliness of pioneer struggles in an alien land. He was frequently called 'the Burns of Canada', andhis style and emphasis on the democratic theme of brotherhood certainly reveal the influence of the Scottish poet. In lifestyle, however, McLachlan was more consciously Carlylean, assuming the role of 'man of letters' in an efort to elevatethe whole tone of man's thinking and to raise the cultural level of Canada . he was highly regarded -- in its obituary notice the Guelph Evening Mercury discerned in him 'a true streak of poetic fire'. Many of McLachlan's early poems have nostalgic echoes of Scottish songs. In later years he responded fully to the bracing beauties of the Canadian landscape and to the social and political challenges of the 'New Dominion'. The Scottish dialect gaveway to a Canadian backwoods one, which proved effective in humourously sat irizing the pretensions of the growing society." - from the dustjacket.

McLACHLAN, Iaen. Place of Banishment : Port Macquarie 1818-1832. (Sydney, NSW) : Hale & Iremonger, (June 2002). Second Printing. Pp (8),11-242. Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, illustrated black card covers. "Port Macquarie, Australia's third oldest mainland port, was a 'place of banishment' where theworst convicts - those who had committed crimes after arriving in New Sout h Wales - were sent as punishment. Governor Macquarie instructed Captain Allman, the first Commandant, to keep all convicts 'at constant hard labour and use every precaution to prevent their escape'. But Macquarie's successors, Governors Brisbane and Darling, found Port Macquarie a 'place of banishment' in name only. It was a prison camp noted for its laxity, indulgences and irregularities. It was certainly a place from which scores of prisoners escaped. Place of Banishment is a story of pioneers, courage, endurance, punishment and deaths; of runaways and Aborigines; of bitter clashes between officers; and of mismanagement of early ventures into sugar growing. Based on extensive research of original documents, the racy narrative will intrigue all those interested in Australia's convict past." - from the back cover. Gift inscription, else very good. 14.00

36457 MCLAREN, Angus Canadian Social History Series Our Own Master Race : Eugenics in Canada, 1885-1945

MCLAREN, Angus. Our Own Master Race : Eugenics in Canada, 1885-1945. Toronto : Oxford University Press, (1990). Pp.(6), 7-228, (4). 8vo, brown and white illustrated card covers. A volume in the Canadian Social History series."Was Canada immune to the racist currents of thought that swept central Eu rope in the 1920's and the 1930's? In this landmark book Angus McLaren, co-author of The Bedroom and the State, examines the pervasiveness in Canada of the eugenic notion of "race betterment" and demonstrates that many Canadians believed that radical measures were justified to protect the community from the "degenerate." The sterilization of the feeble-minded in Alberta and British Columbia was merely the most dramatic attempt to limit the numbers of the "unfit." But in the decades prior to World War Two, eugenic preoccupations were to colour discussions of immigration restriction, birth control, mental testing, family allowances, and a host of similar social policies. Doctors, psychiatrists, geneticists, social workers, and mental hygienists provided an anxious Canadian middle class with the reassuring argument that poverty, crime, prostitution, and mental retardation were primarily theproducts of defective genes, not a defective social system. In explaining why biological solutions were sought for social problems McLaren not only provides a provocative reappraisal of the ideas and activities of a generation of feminists, political progressives, and public health propagandists but he also explores some of the roots of our not-so-latent racist tendencies." -- from rear cover.

"In this thesis the struggle of the female protagonists in the novels of Jean Rhys is examined from the perspective of female development. Chapter One analyzes the significance of romance to the development of female identity in Quartet and Vovage in the Dark. Chapter Two considers the role money plays in After Leaving Mr. Mackenzie as Julia Martin struggles to create a viable adult self. Chapter Three focuses on the importance money has had to Sasha Jansen's life in Good Morning. Midnight. Chapter Four examines the life of Antoinette Cosway as a revision of Bertha in Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre. I suggest that Rhys's last novel revises the myth of the madwoman. Chapter Four is followed by endnotes and a bibliography." - the Abstract.

Drawing on ethnic weekly newspapers andfraternal society records, Robert McLaughlin finds new interpretations of how Orange Canadian unionists and Irish Canadian nationalists viewed their heritage, their membership in the British Empire, and even Canadian citizenship itself. McLaughlin also provides strong evidence that neither time nordistance diminished Irish Canadians' attachment to their familial homeland or their identification with their respective ethnic communities in Irelan d. 'Irish Canadian Conflict and the Struggle for Irish Independence' reconsiders existing contextual frameworks and confronts the challenging questions inherent in understanding this period." - from the introductory preamble.Contents: 1.

"After the retreat from Dunkirk, England, as we know, was very short of arms and the Roosevelt Administration did everything possible to get a supply to England. America had taken over Newfoundland bases for defence - I remember being in Washington in 1940 or '41, when boats for Newfoundland had all sorts of arms — some taken from City Police Court collections. 'Why are these arms going to Newfoundland?' I enquired. 'They are goingfrom a neutral nation to a neutral base. What becomes of them after they g et there is another story,' was the answer. Of course I believe they were sent right along to England. I happened to be at the White House the day the'destroyer' deal went through. The submarine menace had played havoc with British shipping in the North Atlantic, and England was in sore need of more destroyers for protection, and a deal was arranged whereby the United States traded fifty so-called over-aged destroyers for the privilege of building several bases in Newfoundland and the West Indies under a 99-year lease." - p.28.

Macmillan of Canada, Toronto, 1968, 
McLEISH, Dougal. The Traitor Game. Toronto : Macmillan of Canada, 1968. First Canadian Printing. Pp (8),[1]-212,(4). 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to front board and spine with a red panel to spine. A pre- October Crisis work of fiction involving something like the Front de libération du Québec. "There had been no political assassination in Canada for a hundred years when a French-Canadian university student slipped into the crowd at the PrimeMinister's garden party and shot him. Almost at once it was evident that t he murderer was no more than a tool — a simple, unstable boy who pictured himself as a hero and a martyr. The police soon discovered the name of the man who had planned the crime — or the name by which the boy knew him — but were unable to trace him. It seemed natural to blame the assassination on the separatist faction in Quebec which had recently grown bolder. But Max Gervais had his doubts. A series of events had begun to form a pattern in hismind. Why had his friend, John Lane, been sent to prison for an armed robb ery he had not committed? Why did the mysterious Caotain Misselhorn keep a small private army in a luxurious chateau on the shores of Lake Superior? Who was behind the concerted attempt to poison relations between French Canadians and their fellow citizens of British descent? Max Gervais finally discovers the answers to these and other questions, but before he does so he, his beautiful sister Mary, and John Lane are placed in deadly peril, violence and murder erupt across the country, and a bloody coup d'état is attempted in the Canadian capital."
