Illustrated. 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering tofront board and spine. "The book was published in recognition of the 75th birthday of the Faculty of Forestry at the University of Toronto. The author discusses university education in forestry at Toronto, its background andthe people and events that have influenced its development from 1907 to th e present. Other matters that have influenced the development of forestry in Canada (especially Ontario), such as the fluctuations of the economy, government policies, and advances in technology are dealt with in careful detail. Canada's natural resources have made its past development possible; theexploitation of the apparently inexhaustible forests helped provide capita l assets and support industrial development. This exploitation reduced production on choice forest sites for the future and set the stage for the growing movement toward a more positive approach to forest management. The author's concern with the transition in forestry from exploitation to management of forest resources will be of interest to professionals in all areas of the forest industries." - from the dj.

"It was in the el eventh and twelfth centuries that the foundations of one of England's most prosperous medieval cities were laid. Despite the tantalisingly incomplete historical and archaeological record for these critical years, recent research now makes it possible to provide a convincing portrait of Anglo-Saxon and Norman Bristol. David Sivier explores the city's origins as a royal burhin the eleventh century, its connection with the royal manor of Barton Reg is and the establishment of a judicial centre under a reeve. He also looks at the evidence of the location and construction of the burh defences, and of the Norman town walls and castle, and describes the Norman cathedral andchurches. In addition he covers the day-to-day life of the city, from farm ing and industry to the construction of the city docks. In conclusion the author highlights the city's pivotal role in the accession to the English throne of Henry of Anjou, the first king of the Plantagenet dynasty." - from rear. Contents: 1.

"Robin Skelton's poetry of the years 194 7 to 1977 appeared in many books, anthologies, and periodicals published inEngland, Ireland, and the U.S.A. as well as Canada. A number of the books (now all out of print), were issued in limited editions and some were not made available in North America. As a consequence it has been almost impossible for anyone to gain an accurate and comprehensive view of the work of one of Canada's leading poets. Mr. Skelton has now compiled a volume which heregards as establishing the definitive canon of his shorter poems of the p eriod 1947 to 1977. Although he has not included such longer poems and sequences as 'The Dark Window' (1962), 'A Different Mountain' (1971), and 'Callsigns' (1976), and has omitted his translations from the Galelic, Greek, French, and German, as well as the work ascribed to Georges Zuk, he believes that this volume does indicate the central themes of his explorations of the time, and displays the changes and developments of his work. It includes a number of poems not present in earlier collections and several which havenever before appeared in print. Many of the poems have been revised for th is edition." - from the dustjacket.

"Johanna Skibsrud's debut poetry colleciton makes inquriies into hat peculiar phenomenon of being alive in the world. Testing thewaters of her own words, Skibsrud turns her reality over in search of cons tants. Skibsrud's is a rworld of touchstones. An abandoned boat, her grandmother's house, and a piano are fixtures in the process of coming to know the self, serving both as rhythmic landings and as footholds in a pursuit of understanding. The collection's title chapter is a series of takes on the Western genre, its character profiles, sweeping landscapes and the hyperbolic adventures tobe had within. Skibsrud colours the facts with fantastical elements, transforming stories into ballads and road trips into cowboy-studded escapades." - from the rear cover. Johanna Skibsrud’s poetry has appeared in various journals, including The Antigonish Review, Prism International, Lichen and Exile. Originally from Meadowville, Pictou County, Nova Scotia, she currently lives in Toronto. A very good copy. 50.00
