Index. 8vo, purple cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Very good in dustjacket. 60.00 "David B. Quinn's work has made him a pre-eminent authority on the early history of the discovery and colonisation of America. Of his many books The Roanoke Voyages, 1584-1590 (1955) and North America from Earliest Discovery to First Settlements (1977)are probably the best known. Much of his work has appeared in articles whi ch typically stand independently from his books. A number were collected inEngland and the Discovery of America, 1481-1620 (1974). Explorers and Colo nies brings together a further collection and presents an impressive and coherent body of work dealing with many of the significant questions in the context of a range of changing concepts and information, often exemplified in individual personalities. A number of pieces deal with the impact of overseas discovery on European consciousness, from the first visual images and early maps to the ways that discovery and colonisation fitted into the minds of European writers, thinking in terms of Roman precedent. At a more mundane level, we are shown how newsletters were used to encourage home investment in the colonies. Particular notice is given to the voyages of Sir Humphrey Gilbert and Sir Francis Drake and to the work of Richard Hakluyt and Thomas Harriot. While mainly dealing with English involvement in America, Professor Quinn does not neglect the activities of other nationalities: the French voyages to Florida and Canada, Spanish theory and practice in exploration, the contribution of the Welsh to discovery and colonisation and an account of the first Hungarian in North America, Stephen Parmenius."

Agnes Warner (b. 1872, Saint John - d. April 23, 1926, New York City).

"When Canada entered the Great War in 1914, thousands of women eager to see active service signed on to nurse the wounded. What they experienced in the hospitals behind the front lines would remain with them forever. Through thunderous explosions and ominous flashes in the distance, nursing sisters worked at a feverish pace to care for bleeding wounds, broken and missing limbs, and the other devastating injuries of war.

In Agnes Warner and the Nursing Sisters of the Great War, Shawna Quinn explores the world of these brave women - the gruelling, dangerous conditions of work and the brutal realities they faced. Drawing upon the letters of Saint John native Agnes Wagner, Quinn paints a picture of the dedicated women who witnessed firsthand the atrocities of war." - from the back cover.

QUINN, William P. Saltworks of Historic Cape Cod : A Record of the Nineteenth Century Economic Boom in Barnstable County. (Orleans, MA : Parnassus Imprints, 1993). First Edition. Pp (3),iv-viii,1-247,(1). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Some nautical content throughout. "The early Cape Codders were reported to be well preserved in their salt. The prosperous economic period in the first half of the nineteenth century was the foundation for a large part of the subsequent commerciai operations in Barnstable County and the manufacture of salt was the moving force behind this development. The early colonists depended heavily on salt forfood preservation in the absence of any type of refrigeration. When the su pply of this product was cut off during the Revolutionary War, the people here had to make their own from sea water. This they learned to do and the intriguing story of Cape Cod and salt is here set out in fascinating detail.The fishing fleets, the packet vessels and various commercial operations w ere all dependent on each other and on salt during those difficult times ofwar. Spread far and wide along the shores of Cape Cod, the salt evaporator s contributed heavily to the economy of the area, protected by monopolies and bounties during their initial years of operations. As the population of the United States grew westward, new salt sources were discovered and the manufacturing on the Cape declined. After a long period they ceased altogether but for almost one hundred years the small picturesaue villages of evaporating vats on the upland beaches were strange and conspicuous attractions described by Thoreau and other early authors during their tours of Cape Cod." (from the dj). Contents : 1. The genesis of the salt works on Cape Cod. 2. The development of solar evaporation. 3. Expansion of the salt trade.. 4. Salt taxes and packet boats. 5.

Campbell presented a collection of watercolour and mixed media designs for cigar box labels to the Art Gallery of Windsor in memory of her son, W. R. Campbell, Jr. This catalogue documents and illustrates only part of the collection, which totals 114 original picturesin all. So far as we have been able to determine, the collection appears t o be unique. No other comparable group of pictures is known to exist in anypublic art museum or private collection in Canada or in tne United states. In 1981, Gallery curator Ted Fraser selected 54 of these unusual works to form a small introductory travelling exhibition and commissioned David Quintner, a journalist, art critic and collector, to research our collection and to explore the entire subject of the cigar industry and the designers andlithographers who created advertising and promotion for it. Mr. Quintner's essays, whicn make up the body of this catalogue, comprise a primer for st udents and collectors and may well serve to uncover other materials of a similar sort."

"A Canadian writer whose books have stirred and delighted readers around the world for over three decades, Thomas Raddall here sums up his experience in a revealing and entertaining autobiography, as vigorous, as flowing and as robust as the fiction that earned him his considerable reputation. The award-winning novelist andhistorian recaptures his early trials and later triumphs, with a personal and perceptive view of the obstacles a professional writer in Canada must overcome in attaining recognition and success. 'In My Time' is a multi-layered work. It records the human concerns and personal struggles of Thomas Raddall the man -- his ambitions, his growth, and his development apart from his career as a writer. It presents keen perceptions and informative impressions of Canadian publishing, Canadian literature, Canadian history and events. It also affords a rich picture of life in twentieth-century Nova Scotia-- the 1917 explosion, the World Wars, the politics and the people. As wel l, there are illuminating sketches of such literary figures as Hugh MacLennan, Mazo de la Roche, and Thomas B. Costain. But most important of all, there is Thomas Raddall's own candid and masterful self-portrait -- a lively and enduring document of twentieth-century Canadian literature." - from the dustjacket.

"These are times when everyone is concerned about the quality of the literature, or perhaps I should say the quality of the reading matter, chiefly in the form of fiction, now being put before the public.The advent of the so-called pocket book especially has produced a flood of fiction to be had for twenty-five cents or fifty cents a copy at any drugs tore or wayside refreshment stand. Its appeal is set forth usually in a picture on the cxover, and some of our moralists are more concerned, it seems to me, with the picture on the cover than they are with the printed matter inside." (p. 1). Cofffe cup stains to front cover, a few brown specks to back cover, else very good. Signed without inscription by the author.
