"Don Messer was more than a household name in Canada - he was part of family life, the background music in Canadian kitchens. His performances aired first on radio and then made the transition to television. Private and unassuming, Don was everyman and yet someone singular and special: a devoted family man, a rigid Calvinist, band diplomat, enemy of the dandelion, lover of Kentucky Fried Chicken. He was a musical prodigy who from the age of seven knew and played directly to his audience - an audience that eventually protested in unprecedented numbers on Parliament Hill upon CBC's sudden cancellation of his show, Don Messer's Jubilee. In this intimate account, Johanna Bertin shares anecdotes, photographs, and family recollections revealing the inner complexities of the man family and friends knew: the man behind the music that warmed the hearts of millions." - from the back cover.

A bright pictorial showcasing the history and geography of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arcticcoasts of Canada, supplemented with stunning photography. "Canada boasts t he longest coastline in the world. If it were straightened out 'it could bewound around the equator three and a half times and there would still be a bit left over. The beauty and the majesty of the seas surrounds Canada on three sides, offering a rich and varied landscape of fiords and inlets, salt marshes and tidal mudflats, sandbars and tombolos, pebbled beaches, spits, berms, and marine cliffs, washed, scoured,and half drowned by the tides and fragrant winds.' History made to come alive. Here are the potlatch people of the Pacific coast, whose leisure society gave the world a unique art; here are tales of the Arctic and the North West Passage; and the golden ageof sail on Atlantic shores. Photos include the dark mysteries of the Pacif ic rain forest and the serpentine channels of the Mackenzie Delta to the towering cliffs of Baffin Island and the vistas of the Cabot Trail. Accompanied by rare archival photos that bring to life the great days of the Artic whalers, of Maritime shipbuilding and the turn-of-the-century boom of the Pacific coast salmon industry. The book is a plea for marine conservation. The Pacific salmon, the Atlantic cod, the sea otter and the bowhead whale populations are becoming extinct. It is a celebration of our coastal heritage,a lament for a flawed past and a call for decisive action in the future." Vg in dj. 25.00

After having spent some time working in the textile industry in Boston, he returned to Montreal to study for his advanced degree. He spends from midnight until eight in the mronign sweeping streetcars at the Hochelaga shops of the Metropolitan Transport Copmany. Jules is in a sense a man of two lives. His leisure time is spent with his student friends while his working hours are shared with 'Bouboule', Bill, Charlot and other sweepers. Jules aims at writing a novel in which he hopes to bring to life the diversity of milieus with which he comes into contact. These include those ofthe derelict, the homosexual and the prostitute, which give 'The Brawl' a naturalist tone. Jules fails to achieve his intellectual purpose and is forced to abandon the writing of the great French-Canadian novel and to reconcile himself to his proletarian life. Lebeuf's Fate is interwoven with that of Weston who attempts a thesis on the French-Canadians, tears it up and returns to Missouri to become a journalist; and of Sillery who, defeated by his homosexual obsessions, goes to Africa to study anthropology." - from thedustjacket.

Pp (6),1-98 . 8vo, white cloth, purple lettering to spine. "Hervé Jodoin, the dégagé, down-at-heel hero and narrator of this charmingly cynical French-Canadian novel, arrives in Saint Joachim to work in its sole bookshop. The proprietor, M. Léon Chicoine, is outwardly respectable, but in secret he's a champion of free thought and liberty. His most cherishedwares are not for every eye.. . . Hervé at first arranges his life tranqui lly enough, but before long - more for the sake of peace than from any biological urge - he becomes entangled in a fatiguing affair with his landlady.Worse, the confiidence his boss places in him as a fellow - libertarian le ads to an alarming row which involves M. le Curé and everyone else in SaintJoachim. A book by a subversive author named Voltaire is the occasion of t he crisis. This delightfully funny satire on life in the province of Quebeccould not, at first, find a French-Canadian publisher. In the end, having appeared in Paris, it was chosen by the Grand Jury des Lettres of Montreal as one of the ten best French-Canadian novels published between 1945 and i960. English-speaking Canadians may now discover this new and important Canadian novelist for themselves." - from the dj. Gérard Bessette (b. February 25, 1920, Sainte-Anne-de-Sabrevois, Quebec - d.

Her life is turned upside-down by these events, and she is forced to take on the role of primary caregiver to her siblings, Jessie, Flora, and Davey. Things go from bad to worse when Pru’s mother dies, leaving Pru and Jessie, her older brother, to care for the family in secret so they arenot separated and sent away to foster homes, or worse—the orphan house. Pr u and Jessie do everything they can to hide the fact that their mother has passed away and keep the family together, but their situation becomes increasingly dire as their money and food supplies begin to run out and their neighbours start getting suspicious. When the situation comes to a head and they are on the verge of being found out, Pru and her siblings must work together to save their family from being torn apart." - from the publisher website.

"This is the story of one of the world's great rivers, the greatest in eastern America. A northern stream, it flows through great reaches of timber land that stretch unbroken toward the pole; on its waters ships have moved for centuries and on its banks great historical dramas have been enacted.

The St. Lawrence is an international river; her rugged shorelines are at once Canadian and American, and the people who live along them, of no matter what origin, are citizens of the North American continent. The river is a living symbol of a great historical background and of the peace andbrotherhood that exists between the United States and Canada.

Index. 8vo, black cloth, red lettering to spine. “In this long-overdue study of one of Canada's most important political relationships, Lita-Rose Betcherman details the close association between Ernest Lapointe and Prime Minister Mackenzie King and its effect on Canadian history. Lapointe was the dominant French Canadian in federal politics from the start of the 1920s to the early years of the Second World War,serving as minister of justice and King's Quebec lieutenant. In return for promoting Liberal policies in Quebec, Lapointe was given an unusual amount of autonomy in his constituency, and, as the Prime Minister's understandin g of both the province's sensibilities and its language were poor, Lapointecame to be relied upon to provide King with the French-Canadian perspectiv e. Lapointe's role in maintaining Liberal party unity, and, by extension, national unity, was crucial. Equally important when it came to foreign affairs, he was known to take the lead over King, and the isolationist stance ofboth politicians served to undermine the League of Nations in its dealings with Italy over the invasion of Ethiopia. Betcherman draws on key primary sources for her material, including the Lapointe Papers, the King Papers, the King Diary, and the media of the times. Ernest Lapointe thus documents Canadian politics and society in a rigorous and accessible manner that will appeal to both a scholarly and general audience." - from the dj.

"Breathtaking views of sky, sea, and land, the incredible saltwater Bras d'Or Lakes, and easy access to the Cabot Trail draw thousands to Baddeck every year. This magical area of Nova Scotia has enchanted visitors and resident s alike since the early settlements of the Mi'kmaq. From the moment inventor Alexander Graham Bell and his wife, Mabel, built their first home in Baddeck in 1889, the town has been well-known for its role in invention and creativity. With the Bells' arrival, Baddeck was flooded with inventors, scientists, and artists eager to create. Soon enough, the budding village garnered international attention. In February 1909, people flocked to Baddeck Bay to witness the momentous flight of the Silver Dart, which brought aviation to Canada with the country's first powered flight. During this time, Mabel Bell sought out equal rights for women, and established what became the longest-running women's club in Canada." - from the rear cover.

4177 BETTS, Amanda (ed.) McCRAE, John In Flanders Fields : 100 Years. First Edition in dustjacket
Alfred A. Knopf Canada, 2015, ISBN:9780345810250 
BETTS, Amanda (ed.). In Flanders Fields : 100 Years. [Toronto] : Alfred A. Knopf Canada, (2015). First Printing. Pp (14),1-257,(1). Illustrated. 8vo [142 x 235 mm], grey paper-covered spine lettered in black, tan photo-illustrated boards. "In early 1915, the death of a young friend on the battlefields of Ypres inspired Canadian soldier, field surgeon and poet John McCrae to write "In Flanders Fields." Within months of the poem's December 1915 publication in the British magazine Punch it became part of the collective consciousness in North America and Europe, and its extraordinary power has endured over the decades and across generations. In this anthology, Canada's finest historians, novelists and poets contemplate the evolving meaning of the poem; the man who wrote it and the World War I setting from which it emerged; its themes of valour, grief and remembrance; and the iconic image of the poppy. Among the thirteen contributors: Lieutenant-General Roméo Dallaire (ret'd) writes about the emotional meaning of the poem for war veterans;Tim Cook describes the rich and varied life of McCrae; Frances Itani revis its her time in Flanders, and mines the acts of witnessing and remembering;Kevin Patterson offers a riveting depiction of the adrenaline-fueled work of a WWI field surgeon; Mary Janigan reveals the poem's surprisingly divisive effect during the 1917 federal election; Ken Dryden tells us how lines from the poem ended up on the wall of the Montreal Canadiens' dressing room;and Patrick Lane recalls a Remembrance Day from his childhood in a moving reflection on how war shapes us all. "Featuring archival and contemporary images, In Flanders Fields: 100 years is a stirring and engrossing mediationon a singular moment in history, and a tribute to the vital importance of art in the face of the devasting effects of war." (from the dj). Contents :Those who serve (by Rome´o Dallaire); Forged in fire (by Tim Cook); The Wa rs (by Patrick Lane); Treason to their memory (by Mary Janigan); The Torch (by Ken Dryden); Short days ago / Gallery I; Soldier surgeon, soldier poet (by Kevin Patterson); Poppies : three variations (by Margaret Atwood); Of war and remembrance (by Wade Davis); Messages to the living, messages to thedead (by Frances Itani); A Moment's perfection (by Jonathan Vance); That m ark our place / Gallery II; - Three tours of Flanders (by Joseph Boyden); From the diary of William Andrew White (by George Elliott Clarke); Writing about war (by Hannah Moscovitch).

Pp. (4),[v]-viii,(2),[1]-408,(6). 8vo, red cloth with gilt title block to spine. "The character of the Soviet Union as a nuclear power is often a controversial issue, particularly in the United States. In this book Erik Beukel analyses the ways in which American governments have perceived the Soviet Union as a nuclear adversary since the early 1960s. American images have evidently been influenced by Soviet behaviour but this study also demonstrates that the United States'perception in different ways and with varying strength, is related to trad itionally dominating views of its proper role in the world as well as to the domestic political process. Various conclusions are drawn which further elucidate American nuclear policy and highlight the interplay between the superpowers. Many of these findings are important in the policy-making context and in particular to the United States' allies in Europe." - from the dustjacket. Blindstamp to flyleaf, else very good.
