NEWTON, John. The Works of John Newton. [In Six Volumes.] (Edinburgh / Carlisle, Pennsylvania) : The Banner of Truth Trust, (1985). First Printing Thus [in an edition of 2000 copies]. Pp 704 + 600 + 679 + 583 + 644 + 648. Portrait frontispiece to Vol. I. Index. 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to bluepanel to spine, top edge dyed red. A facsimile reprint of the Third Editio n, London 1824. "When John Newton, ex-sea captain and, as yet, unsuccessfulcandidate for the Church of England ministry, finished his first book (an autobiography) in 1762 there was no ready publisher. Any thought that he was destined to become one of the best known authors of his age would have been as fantastic as the last 37 years of his life. But in both cases the improbable came about. Becoming curate of Olney, Bucks, in 1764, Newton there laid his reputation as an evangelical writer, pre-eminently by his published Letters and by the Olney Hymns (including ‘How Great the Name of Jesus Sounds, ‘Glorious things of Thee are spoken’ and ‘Amazing grace’). Before theend of his subsequent pastorate at St. Mary Woolnoth, London (1780-1807), his writings were prized around the world from America to Australia. The 19th century saw a number of rival editions of his Complete Works, but it is the edition from which the present is reprinted (which includes his Lettersto a Wife) which has the best claim to that title. Newton has a firm place in the classics of Christian literature. While his style is strong and cle ar, it is the spiritual attractiveness and importance of his main themes which secure the permanent value of his writings. Most of his books came, unpremeditated, out of a need to help his congregation or individual hearers, and it is in practical helpfulness towards Christian living that he excels.If he is loved rather than admired, it is for this reason. Conformity to C hrist is the one subject upon which his themes finally focus (‘It will not be a burden to me at the hour of death that I have thought too highly of Jesus, expected too much from Him myself, or laboured too much in commending and setting Him forth to others’). Not surprisingly, Alexander Whyte could write, ‘For myself, I keep John Newton on my selectest shelf of spiritual books: by far the best kind of books in the whole world of books’." (from the dj). Contents : Vol. 1. Memoirs of the Rev. John Newton. Forty-one letters on religious subjects. Cardiphonia. Vol. 2. Cardiphonia, continued. Six discourses (or sermons). Sermons preached at Olney. Vol. 3. A review of ecclesiastical history. Olney hymns. Vol. 4. [Sermons]. Vol. 5. [Tracts]. [Sermons]. Vol. 6. Letters to various persons, intended as a sequel to Cardiphonia.

Passages of terse but telling dialogue alternate with an evocative, precisely detailed portrait of a home and lanscape to illuminate a young couple's inner crisis at a time of loss. The effect is of a skillfully guided tour through a world of memory and longing, risk and desire.Step by confident step, revelation by revelation, bp nichol leads us into the minds and lives of his characters, people in whom we can hardly fail torecognize buried, suppressed or forgotten aspects of ourselves." - from th e rear cover.

From the ear ly typewriter poetry of 'Konfessions of an Elizabethn Far Dancer' and the life-long poem 'The Martyrology' to the heartbreaking prose of 'Journal' andthe whimsical autobiography of 'Selected Organs', 'The Alphabet Game' trac es the trajectory of this wildly imaginjative and prolific poet.

Pp (10),[xi-xxvii,(3),[3]-192,(48). With some illustrations in the text. 8vo (153 x 228 mm), art-illustrated cardcovers, with white lettering to black spine. Andrew D. Nicholls,who got his doctorate at the University of Guelph, was profesor at Buffalo State College at the time of publication. "Before the future of North Amer ican rule was decided by the battle between British and French forces on the Plains of Abraham, Britain's emerging imperial interests were representedby ambitious merchants and privateers. A Fleeting Empire examines the live s and exploits of early European adventurers in North America, revealing the murky mix of self-interest, patriotism, and adventure that motivated them. The union of the English and Scottish crowns in 1603 gave rise to a new British seafaring community, which the early Stuart monarchy used to pursue some of the first commercial and colonial ventures in North America. Among those who sailed across the Atlantic were the Kirke brothers, who in 1629 forced Samuel de Champlain's surrender of Quebec, Sir William Alexander of Menstrie, a rising political figure and patentee of Nova Scotia, and James Stewart of Killeith, leader of a colony on Cape Breton Island. King Charles I was more concerned with brokering a peace with France than looking to thenew world, so the gains of the merchant adventurers were short-lived, but their adventures provide a tantalizing glimpse of a moment of British colonial control, suggesting what might have been. Andrew Nicholls showcases theenterprises of knights and privateers alike, providing a fascinating accou nt of early European colonies, commerce, and military force in North America. A Fleeting Empire forces us to see the early histories of Canada and theUnited States in a new light." - from the rear. Introduction: On Filling t he Gaps 1.

Memories of Allways became almost too poignant at the sight of that grisly little patch of ground behind the house. But a transformation scene followed. After hundreds of plans had been drawn and rejected, when the awkward three-sidedplot seemed an Eternal Triangle that could not be reduced to a more seemly shape, some wizardry did the trick. Turf was laid, trees appeared, the fra grance of the flowers began to fill the air. But then there were the neighbours, and especially Mrs Heckmondwyke. When an ingenious domed greenhouse was introduced, the question of Ancient Lights raised its hoary head, adn the trouble really began. Luckily the battle of wits and wills went in favourof Mr Nichols; and those who read his account of how the city grew green a nd gay as the garden of Allways will surely agree unanimously that the bestman won." - from the dustjacket.

NICHOLS, Beverley. A Pilgrim's Progress. London: Jonathan Cape, (1952). First US Printing. Pp. (6),7-253,(3). 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettering to spine, top edge dyed red. "Beverley Nichols shows Britain as a chaos of conflicting faiths. He describes, with drastic candour, the neglected streets ofCanterbury; he paints a dramatic picture of the crowds that throneg round the spirit healers; he candidly examines the claims of the Christian Scientists, and gives a brilliant analysis of the growing power of Rome. He has travelled from the valleys of Wales, where fiath is expressed in song, to the remotest haunts of the Wee Frees, where worship is as stern and stark as the barren countryside. And always his journey is inspired by a sense of personal urgency, which is sustained from the first page to the last. We believe that 'A Pilgrim's Progress' will prove as absorbing to the layman as tothe priest, and that it has something important to say to readers of every faith ... and, even more, to those who have none." - from the dustjacket.

NICHOLS, Beverley. Murder By Request. London: Hutchinson of London, (1960).First Printing. Pp. (6),7-222,(2). 8vo, black cloth with red lettering and white borders to spine. Jacket design by William Randell. "'Mr. Somerset M augham, I see, places Beverley nichols among the top Big Few of British mystery writers. And reading this latest, I cannot wonder.' So wrote ElizabethBowen of Beverley Nichols' last detective story. 'Murder By Request', we b elieve, is a considerable advance on the previous novels which aroused Mr. Maugham's enthusiasm. The ingenuity of Horatio Green -- who has been compared with the immortal Father Brown -- seems to increase with the years. The setting is a fashionable nature cure establishment in which a great financier is found shot through the heart in a darkened television room. The suspects are drawn with Mr. Nichols' accustomed shrewdness. And the murderer, weneed hardly say, is the last person whom even the most hardened expert in whodunits would expect." - from the dustjacket.

(LADD, Grace F.). NICHOLS, Louise. Quite a Curiosity : The Sea Letters of Grace F. Ladd. [Edited by] Louise Nichols. (Halifax, NS) : Nimbus Press, (2003). First Printing. Pp (4),[1]-196. Illustrated with photos to text. 8vo, illustrated pale green card covers. Grace (Forrest) Ladd (b. December 2, 1864, Yarmouth, Nova Scotia - d. March 8, 1942). "Grace (Forrest) Ladd was born into a distinguished Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Family in 1864 during the province's golden age of sail. Intelligent, attractive and gregarious, she could easily have fitted the stereotypical image of a Victorian socialite. But she was anything but typical. At age twenty-one she married a sea captainand spent most of the next twenty-five years , until he retired in 1915 sa iling with him around the world. Grace Forrest married Fred Ladd while he was captain ot the 1,320-ton barque Morning Light, and sailed with him from New York to Shanghai on a "honeymoon" voyage. Fred took command of the steel-hulled barque Belmont in 1891, and this vessel became Grace's permanent home for almost twenty years. She kept in touch with those at home by mail, and it is her letters to her father Charles E. Brown that form the main content or this book. Her letters provide an intimate insight into her role aboard ship — her relationships with the captain and the crew, the day to dayroutine of a woman's life at sea, the birth of her children, and the chall enges and difficulties that arose as well as her responses to emergencies. Grace's letters also serve to dispel the notion that Victorian women were fragile or subservient. Here was a courageous, energetic and curious woman whose relationship with her husband was one or companionship and mutual respect. Her exchanges with her father are light and good-natured, and he obviously approved of her nomadic life as she communicated with him from the FarEast, Africa, India, New Zealand and Australia, Scandinavia and the Britis h Isles, South America and the Caribbean. This engaging narrative of a woman s iite at sea aiso contains excerpts from the diary of Grace's daughter, Katherine Ladd, which provide perspective on Grace's character and the strong influence she had on her seafaring family.

"Here is related the story of the building of the famous Canadian Corps into a first-class fighting machine whose efficiency and prowess wereunsurpassed by any other formation in the Allied armies. From the early ex citing days of assembly at Valcartier and confusion of embarkation at Quebec, the reader will follow the First Contingent through the misery of winteron Salisbury Plains to the first great test in the Ypres Salient and the h eroic stand against the enemy's newest weapon - poison gas. Gradually the Canadian Corp grew to its full strength, and through its bitter experiences in the mud of the Somme battlefields learned the lessons and built up the esprit that enabled it to prove itself in its splendid achievement on Vimy Ridge. Then came the bitter fighting for Hill 70 and the horrors of Passchendaele - costly forerunners of the great battles of the Hundred Days and thetriumphant advance to Mons and final victory. A chapter of the book summar izes the activities of those Canadian forces who served outside the Canadian Corps, some of them in theatres far removed from the Western Front. In addition, two chapters have been devoted to consideration of problems of organization and administration, particularly the controversial question of theintroduction of conscription in 1917." - from the dj.
