"In 1974, noted Canadian critic Frank Davey said that John Newlove had developed 'one of the most direct and visually precise styles in twentieth-century poetry.' Davey's words suggest that Newlove is the kind of poet who works slowly and painstakingly to produce verse rivalled by that of few other Canadian writers. It certainly is why our publication of 'The Night the Dog Smiled' is cause for celebration and critical excitement. Here Newlove is at his finest in a new collection of sharply honed, direct, and ruthlessly honest poems of intense feeling, observation, and involvement."-from the rear cover.

40348 NEWMAN, C.J. Russian Novel. 1st Cdn in dj
New Press, Toronto, 1975, ISBN:0887701752 
NEWMAN, C.J.. Russian Novel. Toronto: New Press, 1973. Pp. (12) 13-381 (3).8vo, burgandy cloth. Description on dust jacket: "The great non-conformist s among Soviet writers, the pasternaks and Solzhenitsyns, speak most directly and persuasively to to Western readers. But there are great 'Establishment' figures too, notably Sholokhov, the author of And Quiet Flows the Dawn and Virgin Soil Upturned: and it is around one of these writers that C. J. Newman has built this unusual and absobing novel, which is at once a remarkable exploration of a man, a literary career and a political climate. "There are many parallels between Sholokhov and Mr Newman's Vinogradov, whose fame is based on his trilogy The Mountain and the Sky, hailed by Soviet critics as a masterpiece but felt in the west to be marred by its inflated sentiment and orthodox optimism. Now a young Canadian writer, David Miller, intrigued by Vinogradov's long silence, plans a book about his am persuades a Western publisher to sponsor a visit to Russia. "Research is tough going in Moscow, even when one's subject is unexceptionally 'correct.' Miller's efforts to meet Vinogradov are politely blocked; literary figures whom Miller does not meet are unhelpful; but at a Writers' union reception, one of the dissidents, Ratin, forces his way in, thrusts a large envelope into Miller'shands. When the secret police arrive and arrest Ratin, Miller refuses to h and over the envelope. "Miller meets Vinogradov's young wife, Natasha, and a strange, intense relationship develops between them. natasha is deviouslytrying to protect Ratin, whom she loves: she even contemplates asking her husband to appeal on his behalf. Miller journeys to the remote village where Vinigradov's very aged mother lives: what he learns from her adds to the enigma. And then, uninvited, he visits Vinogradov himself: a tense, even frigthening encounter. "Meanwhile, Ratin is taken from the prison-asylum where he is struggling to preserve his sanity (or his madness) to a demonstration on Red Square; whereupon Vinogradov appears beside him. There is savage irony in the ending, but also courage and dignity and redemption. "This is indeed a novel of stature, of high seriousness, and worthy of its theme. Itreveals an astonishing understanding of the Russian character and milieu: or perhaps not so astonishing when we learn that Mr Newman is part Russian and that he has visited Russia twice. Moreover, in its prose style the novel echoes the dark power of Russian fiction: truly, it is itself "a Russian novel." Spine sunned, otherwise Vg. With dust jacket. 40

40349 NEWMAN, C.J. We Always Take Care of Our Own : A Novel. in dustjacket
McClelland and Stewart Limited, Toronto / Montreal, 1965, 
NEWMAN, C.J.. We Always Take Care of Our Own : A Novel. Toronto / Montreal : McClelland and Stewart Limited, (1965). Pp (8),9-272. ). 8vo, blue cloth,black lettering to spiine. "We always take care of our own," said Grandma Meyers the family matriarch, holding court on her annual visit from Florida. This remark provides twenty-year-old Meyer Rabinovitch with a clue to just the course of action which will rattle them all out of their smug respectability. A simple act of begging plunges the entire establishment — in thisinstance, the Montreal Jewish community — into consternation and shock. Th eir efforts to entice him from his self-appointed crusade is the basis of this sophisticated tale about a young man, not overly bright and without anyreal convictions, who nevertheless burns with the pure flame oT idealism. What drove Meyer to this unique protest and then to denounce the group's desperate measures? Was ever the unlovelv middle class so plagued by a moralist? So blamed for makinq money? Why does a so-called free society classify men into inescapable categories, and then judge the whole by the least of its parts? In a highly original plot which is intentionally absurd, the author brings to life a galaxy of colourful characters to provoke and delight the reader. Here is sharp satire mixed with compassion and comedy, a diverting story successfully combining pathos, sex, and religion. C. J. Newman creates a compelling world which could be any North American city with an in-group. It is his ability to tell a good story, and his brilliant characterization which masks a singular maturity of attitude, that lift this novel above the ordinary." (from the dj). Contents : 1. Grandma Byers at Home. 2. Grandma Byers in the Wilderness. 3. Meyer Goes to City Hall. 4. Byers, Blake & Baillargeon. 5. Symptoms. 6. The Seven Lean and Seven Fat Years on the Corner. 7.

On everything being secured, L t. Davies is sent off with directions to scour the coast and take possession of Great and Little Miquelon. (p.6-7, approx. 450 words).

40399 NEWTON, John Works of John Newton. In Six Volumes. First Printing Thus in dustjacket
Banner of Truth Trust, Edinburgh / Carlisle, Pennsylvania, 1985, ISBN:085151460X 
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. Miscellaneous papers extracted from periodical publications. ADDITIONALSHIPPING CHARGES WILL BE REQUIRED DUE TO ITS WEIGHT. Very good in dustjack ets. The 6-volume set for 160.00
