Large 8vo, green cloth with gilt ti tles to spine. "When Paul Roche's first book, 'The Rat and the Convent Dove', was about to be published in 1952, he asked Duncan Grant to illustrate it. Duncan forthwith went to the zoo and sketched rats, pigeons, deer, marmosets, baboons and the other various creatures that plaid their parts. [...]Thirty years later, [...] calling upon their long friendship, Paul Roche u ses the focus of their shared three-week sojourn in Turkey to reveal something of Duncan's rare and original personality. He extends into words the Master's own technique of building up a portrait by small cumulative touches,conveying contours not by outlining and defining them but by overlapping s trokes which let the truth emerge in its own uniqueness. Paul Roche has succeeded in capturing not a little of the fragrance that is Duncan Grant: supreme artist, most lovable and least 'Bloomsbury' of all that famous circle of friends." - from the dj.

ROCHON, Lisa. Up North : Where Canada's architecture meets the land. (Toronto : Key Porter Books Limited, 2006). Second Printing. Pp [1]-304. Illustrated. Index. Large 8vo, red cloth, silver lettering to spine. "From influential architecture critic Lisa Rochon comes a book with ideas about what distinguishes architecture in Canada and what it will take to offset the risingtide of mediocrity and sameness in North America. In Up North : Where Cana da's Architecture Meets the Land, Rochon sets her sights on architecture that is deeply connected to the land and culture. She analyzes how architecture in this country has celebrated the principles of Canadian society, from our public schools and libraries to a transparent legal system. Architecture is positioned as one of the fundamental, life-changing arts . She describes the visionary and humanist thinking behind the rise of the big city in Canada as well as the way that contemporary architecture has helped to heal Aboriginal communities on the West Coast. Some of the work featured in Up North is intimate and discreet. Some is monumental. Much is an ecstatic interpretation of the vast Canadian land. Refreshing insights are drawn from the author's extensive interview with the gurus of Canadian modernism, including Arthur Erickson, Raymond Moriama and Jack Diamond, as well as from the country's younger superstars such as the Patkau Architects, Saucier & Perrotte architectes and Shim-Sutcliffe Architects. Internationally acclaimed work is featured alongside rarely seen jewels of architecture. A spirited manifesto to radicalize the public, Up North harnesses the passion and anger that bad architecture provokes and challenges all of us to demand more of our cities." - from the dj.

"' I try to use each line, tone, color...each person, facial expression, gesture...for one supreme purpose—to tell a story.' And here Norman Rockwell tells the story - in his own words and pictures—behind the creation of the paintings that have made him America's most beloved artist. Written at the peak of Rockwell's career and never available before in any bookstore, this intimate and inspiring book is now available to the public for the first time- the most revealing book on this great artist because the author is Rockw ell himself. Open this lavishly illustrated book and you'll see Rockwell inaction, surrounded by his friends, his models, and all the unpublished ske tches and studies that show the artist's mind at work. You'll step into Rockwell's studio in Arlington, Vermont; meet the neighbors who were models for hundreds of his unforgettable characters; see him direct his "actors" to produce just the right facial expression and strike the most telling pose to convey joy, outrage, or just a sneeze. You'll learn how he searched out the right locations, props, and costumes for the authentic Rockwell look - literally buying clothes off people's backs to clothe the models for "Huckleberry Finn". Most fascinating of all, Rockwell tells (and shows) you how heconceived the ideas for his famous paintings and then developed a picture like "The First Day of School," from the earliest doodles through more elaborate drawings and color studies to the final, immortal painting. Every page of "How to Make a Picture" glows with Norman Rockwell's enthusiasm, humor, creativitivity, and affection for the typical Americans who fill his canvases - and who have loved his work for more than half a century. Radiant with Norman Rockwell's personality - in words, drawings, and paintings - "Howto Make a Picture" is the great illustrator's ultimate self-portrait. " fr om the dj. "When Norman Rockwell was at the height of his career in the late 1940's, he wrote a delightful book called How I Make a Picture. It was the basis for an advanced illustration course at the Famous Artists School, but was never made available to the general public. We are now delighted to have this unique opportunity to make Rockwell's original book available forthe first time in an expanded version, containing full-color reproductions of the artist's best work along with previously unpublished color sketches ." - from Publisher's Note, p.[5]. Contents: "Meeting Norman Rockwell" by Alden Hatch (pp.9-16). Chapters: 1. Getting the Picture Idea; 2. How to Select Models; 3. The Importance of Detail; 4. Poses and Props; 5. Making the Charcoal Drawing; 6. Making the Color Sketch; 7. The Final Painting.

"This is the story of a man judicially destroyed in a ceremonial social drama of retributive legal murder, told in part in his own words. John Knatchbull, son of a British baronet—a relative by marriage of Sir Joseph Banks—rose during the Napoleonic wars to the rank of commander inthe British navy. After being transported in 1824 at the age of 34, he spe nt nineteen years in New South Wales, seven of them at Norfolk Island underthe iron-hearted commandant, Major Joseph Anderson ("Potato Joe")—before b eing hanged for murder outside Darlinghurst Gaol in 1844, in the presence of 10,000 people. During the succeeding century this man has been stigmatized as a monster of bloody appetite. Men still speak of him as "the notoriousKnatchbull" and point to him as one of the arch-criminals of Australia. In this book Colin Roderick assembles all the available evidence on Knatchbul l'rs history, including the narrative written by the unfortunate man in thecondemned cell during the last few weeks of his life, now published for th e first time. From this, and from the story of Knatchbull's life unfolded by British naval and Australian convict records, a completely new and different portrait of the man emerges." (from p. [i] and the dj).

RODGERS, Gordon. A Settlement of Memory : A novel. St. John's, NF: Killick Press, 1999. First Printing. Pp. (10),1-[244],(2). 8vo, illustrated blue card covers with french flaps, black titles to front and spine, with pale spine. "When Tom Vincent's father dies on Edward Lank's foundry floor, Lank's way of making amends is to offer the fourteen-year-old the stewardship of astore on isolated Reach Run Island. This telling scene reveals a great dea l about life in Newfoundland circa 1900. It is also the beginning of the odyssey of Tom Vincent -- store-keeper, book lover, telegraphers, fisherman, farmer, healer, union organizer, politician and visionary. With both a storyteller's gift for narrative pacing and a poet's ear for the power of language, Gordon Rodgers makes Tom Vincent's journey a memorable read. Spanning from the 1870s through the First World War, 'A Settlement of Memory' is a rich evocation of people and place. Rodgers peoples the novel with compelling characters -- from Madeline Lane, a woman caught between difficult choices, to Hammond Janes, a journalist who learns observation as a child watching the great fire of 1892. Though this is a work of fiction, it is also solidly grounded in Newfoundland's rich and troubled history, particularly its labour history. In constructing a fictional parallel to William Coaker and the Fisherman's Protective Union, Rodgers mines the wealth of tension and possibility inherent in the relationships between fishermen and merchants, between social entrenchment and change, and between the highly individual nature of Newfoundland's communities and people and the forces of official authority." - from the front flap.

William Ledyard Rodgers (b. February 4, 1860, Washington, D.C., United States – d. May 7, 1944, Bethesda, Maryland) USN admiral and historian.

"Together with the strategic and tactical account of the wars there is an examination of what kinds of men-of-war nations had at various times in order to act as they are alleged to have done. ...The literary records as to ancient ships are supplemented by many archaeological remains: vase-paintings, wall paintings, mosaics, and sculptures; but, in spite of all these data, students disagree greatly as to what a triere (for example) was really like. As the practice of shipbuilding in the Mediterranean embodied a continuous tradition, we may with advantage draw inferences from the construction of medieval and later rowing ships of which we have full accounts, and apply these to earlier ships." -from the Preface.

Author William Rodney, Professor of History, Alberta-born and educated, came to Waterton Lakes in 1948 as an undergraduateat the University of Alberta and found a challenge in discovering the real Kootenai Brown. Under layers of legend and fiction there was a man. He had been soldier, prospector, constable, buffalo hunter, wolfer, squaw man, ma il rider for the U.S. Army and pioneer conservationist. Where was the truthburied? [...] Kootenai Brown hunted buffalo with the Métis, faced an Ameri can Territorial Grand Journey for murder, was captured by Sitting Bull, became Canada's first conservationist and left a permanent monumnet for North American in the Waterton Lakes - Glacier National Parks Complex." from the dj..

"Using a vast range of primary sources, this substantial and important volume provides a comprehensive analysis of the division and near-collapse of Habsburg authority during the 1550s. The principal episodes of this period (the death of Charles V, the accession of Philip II, and the latter's marriage to Mary Tudor) are well known in outline, but Dr Rodriguez-Salgado provides much that is new and original, both on theinternal history of Spain, and on the highly complex diplomacy of the peri od. Why did Charles V and Philip I go to war against France, and Papacy andIslam, and how did the multinational empire survive the huge financial dem ands such wars placed upon it? Spanish relations with England and France are examined in detail, and The Changing Face of Empire does a great deal to illuminate the breakdown in relations with the Netherlands that was to culminate in the Dutch Revolt."

"During the last few years the condition of Physical Science in this country has been essentially changed. Concretely, science has received more ample recognition from the State, and from the Public at large, than ever before: individually, each science has progressed rapidly; discoveries have multiplied as the number of science-students has augmented; and the results of research have been disseminated by means of more complete and extensive courses of scientific instruction in our Universities and Schools. In fact,science is altogether less esoteric than it used to be: it has ceased to be the study of the chosen few, and it thus happens that the language which it adopts is being received more and more into the language of every-day life. "We must remember, however, that the facts and deductions of science accumulate very quickly, and are often of a complex and recondite character, particularly in the form in which they are first presented to the world by those who discover or elaborate them; hence they ever require to be simplified and popularized before they can enter into the general literature of a community. The secrets of Nature do not come to us in a direct manner, for the natural philosopher is Nature minister et intcrpres, and the interpretation of Nature is science, and the interpreters of science are scientific works. To be such is the object of the following pages, and with this in our view we have given as complete an account as the space permits, of the more strictly experimental sciences, divested as much as possible of abstruse treatment and difficult formula. Recent results and generalizations have been added, and each science, although scattered throughout the book, is connected and complete in itself. Ready reference has been facilitated by breaking up a subject, whenever it could be done without detriment; and frequent cross-references have been introduced, both for the maintenance of continuity, and for guiding thd mind to collateral subjects." - from the Preface.

RODZIANKO, M.V. The Reign of Rasputin : An Empire's Collapse. Memoirs of M.V. Rodzianko, President of the Russian State Duma. Translated by Catherine Zvegintzoff. Introduction by Sir Bernard Pares. With a New Introduction by David R. Jones. (Gulf Breeze, Florida) : Academic International Press, 1973. First thus printing. Pp. (6),v-xxvii,(1),1-278,(4). 8vo, black cloth withsilver letternig to spine. The Russian Series, Volume 55. David R. Jones, of Cambridge Station, Nova Scotia (at the time of publication). "'Recollections' and 'memoirs' are among the most popular -- and enigmatic -- of the sources available to the professional historian and the generally informed lay reader. Often having a strong flavor of intrigue, they seem to give the reader a sense of 'behind-the-scenes' insight. He too may share the tensions, excitements, and frustrations of making important decisions and catch glimpses of the 'great' of the world at unguarded or critical moments. And this is nowhere truer than in the case of memoirs dealing with the collapse of Tsarist Russia, as there are few who are not fascinated by the fall of the European giant of 1914. In this context the memoirs of Michael Vladimirovich Rodzianko (1859-1924), the last President of the Imperial Russian Duma,are of particular interest. His first set of reminiscences, entitled 'The State Duma and teh February Revolution of 1917', appeared in Russian in Berlin in 1922, and a few years later, also in Berlin, they were followed by his more extensive 'The Collapse of the Empire'. [...] In inscribing a convincing first-hand portrayal of the state of mind, ambitions and frustrationsamong Russia's moderate liberals during an era of mounting political affli ction, Rodzianko's 'The Reign of Rasputin' scarcely can be surpassed." - from Jones's introduction.

ROE, Kathleen Robson. War Letters from the C.W.A.C. (Canadian Women's Army Corps). Toronto : (Kakabeka Publishing Co. Ltd., 1975). Pp (4),v,(1),1-169,(1). Illustrated. 8vo, tan cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Remember the Canadian Women's Army Corps, those trim young women in Canadian khaki who appeared among us is in the early forties? Those women were a good cross-section of the more venturesome of Canadian womanhood. Not for them the then-usual role of marrying early, raising babies and filling in time in the field or factory until their men came back from the wars. Thev wanted to be part of the biggest event of their young lives so they flocked in the thousands into recruiting stations. They handed over control of their lives to tne military, which fed them and clothed and housed them (and paid them 90 cents a day as a recruit). They wore their hair and skirt hems at regulation length; they were moved about like pawns on the chessboard of the nations, and they loved it. They were soldiers, and proud of the service to which they had committed themselves, but they were women still, and women on voyages ofdiscovery about themselves and the world around them which had rarely been opened to them. They were from families rich and poor; from the cities, th e farms, the prairies and mountains and coasts. They lived and travelled inthe crowded conditions of war, just as did all the others. Here, from a se ries f letters home, is the story of one young woman, one of the first to enlist, one of the first to be sent overseas to England to live there through the terror and harrassment of the bombing, one of the few to land on a French beach, following the advancing troops tnrough western Europe. It is the story of one C.W.A.C. member but also the story of many. Through the eyesof Kathleen Robson, we learn of the wayy she lived, the people she met, th e places she saw.. Her letters were meant to be shared by friends and family, so that the intimacies are few. Nor is this the now-it-can-be-told insider's view of the great. This is a corporal's eye-view of a woman in war; warm, simple, reflecting the politics and the life of the times. We are luckythat the letters were saved, and we too can settle down to read them avidl y, to follow her into a look at the past from inside." - the Prefatory Noteby Judy LaMarsh.
