A new edition of Cape Breton author RaySmith's Hugh MacLennan Fiction Prize-winning novel. "First published in 19 92, the award winning 'A Night at the Opera' is set in the small German city of Waltherrott and is a madcap excursion from the 1980s back to 1848, theyear of revolutions, then back to the time of the Black Death in the late 1340s. A startling comedy, 'A NIght at the Opera' is a tour de force of theunexpected, the bizarre, and the serendipitous. It is a delightful cavalca de of fools and knaves, grouches and maniacs, frumps and tarts, heroes and clowns. And through it all drifts the captivating music of Carl Maria von Stumpf, the most brilliant, yet most shamefully neglected composer of that most preposterous of art forms -- the opera." - from rear.

Pp.(6),vii-x,1-347,(1). 8vo, brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine. A volu me in the Soviet and East European Studies Series. "This book explores the impact of the 1917 Revolution on factory life in the Russian capital. It traces the attempts of workers to take control of their working lives from the February Revolution through to June 1918, when the Bolsheviks nationalised industry. Although not primarily concerned with the political developments of the Revolution, the book demonstrates that the sphere of industrial production was a crucial arena of political as well as economic conflict. [...] The central theme of the book is the factory committees' implementation of workers' control of production. Dr Smith rejects the standard Western interpretation of this movement as 'syndicalist', showing that its ideological perspectives were close to, but not identical with, those of the officialBolshevik party. Essentially, workers' control was a practical attempt to maintain production and to preserve jobs in a situation of deepening economic chaos." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. A profile of the Petrograd working class on the eve of 1917; 2. The tsarist factory; 3. The February Revolution: A new dispensation in the factories; 4. The structure and fuctions of the factory committees; 5. Trade unions and the betterment of wages; 6. The theory and practice of workers' control of production; 7. Deepening economic chaos and the intensification of workers' control; 8. The social structure of the labour movement; 9. The October Revolution and the organisation of industry; 10. The economic crisis and the fate of workers' control: October 1917 to June 1918. With bibliography and index. Very good in clean,crisp dustjacket. 100.00

"Sidney Earle Smith, PC (March 9, 1897 – March 17, 1959 ) was a noted academic and Canada's Secretary of State for External Affairsin the government of Prime Minister John Diefenbaker. Born and raised on N ova Scotia's Port Hood Island, he grew up speaking both English and Gaelic.He was an excellent student, and became a lawyer and a professor of law. H e lectured at Osgoode Hall, and then at Dalhousie University, By 1929, he was Dean of Dalhousie's law school. In 1934, he left the Maritimes to becomepresident of the University of Manitoba. In 1945, he was appointed the pre sident of the University of Toronto. He remained in that role for twelve years, overseeing a major period of the university's expansion. Long a strongConservative, but very much in the Red Tory tradition, Smith became a prom inent member of the Progressive Conservative Party. In 1956, he was considered a possibility for the party's leadership, but decided not to run, disappointing those who wished to prevent the populist John Diefenbaker from becoming leader. After Diefenbaker won a surprise minority government in 1957,Smith was appointed as Secretary of State for External Affairs. Despite Sm ith's brilliance and popularity in academia, his success in this new role was limited. After holding the position for two years, Smith died suddenly of a stroke in 1959. Sidney Smith Hall, a main building at the University ofToronto for the humanities and social sciences, is named after him." - fro m wikipedia.

Stalin's iron grip is at its tightest, enforced by the Ministry of State Security - a secret police force whose brutality is no secret at all. Under its regime, people are commanded to believe that crime simply doesnot exist. But when the body of a young boy is discovered on train tracks in Moscow, Officer Leo Demidov - a war hero, utterly dedicated to the Ministry - is surprised to hear that the boy's family is convinced it was murder. Leo's superiors order him to ignore this and he is obliged to obey. But something in him knows there is more. Sensing his doubts, the Ministry threatens Leo, giving him no choice but to turn his back on his once-beloved Party. Disgraced, exiled with his wife Raisa to a town deep in the Ural Mountains, Leo realises that the crime he helped cover up in the capital has happened here too. The murder of another child. Risking everything, Leo and Raisa will pursue a horrifying killer - even if doing so makes them enemies ofthe State... " Very good in unclipped dustjacket.

"Known as a champion of cau ses and a talented energetic, though temperamental photojournalist, W. Eugene Smith never gained full recognition in is lifetime for his consummate achievements in a form he not only mastered but virtually invented: the photographic essay. In the making since Smith's death in 1978, this volume of unprecedented scope reproduces over 1,800 prints selected from over 10,000 inthe photographer's archive at the Center for Creative Photography in Tucso n. Most of them have never before been published. Step by step, image by image, the book reveals how Smith worked--how he researched, shot, and editedhis photographs to create a sequence of narrative continuity, dramatic pac ing, and emotional appeal...Smith devoted his life to the photo essay because he was committed to the concerns of the human spirit, to documenting andpersonalizing the ravages of war, to affirming life, and to exposing injus tice and the abuse of power wver he found it. He believed that through a sequence of pictures he could most accurately present truth and that the revelation of truth would in turn inspire change...With each essay, Smith increased his skill and flexibility, sometimes closing in on his subject, sometimes stepping back, making even portrait assignments into grand collages of an individual's moods and contexts. His last essay--an expose of the mercury poisoning in the town of Minamata, Japan--combined stylistic innovation with a strong vision and exquisite empathy, bringing worldwide attention to a serious human problem. Such essays accomplish what Smith hoped they would: through their sympathy and vitality, they "lure our senses into awareness." (from the dj). William Eugene Smith (1918 – 1978), was an American photojournalist known for his refusal to compromise professional standards and his brutally vivid World War II photographs.

But religion was a limited force for those whose lives were hardened by discomfort, exposure to cold and wet, wretched food, medical neglect and harsh disciscipline. Chaplains withinsight came to understand the Navy's own moral code and used it to build upon. On some ships they were welcomed.

"In the days of sail the sailor met his God upon the sea, for it was here that he was most aware of Him as Ruler of the elements. Towards this God he showed respect. But religion was a limited force for those whose lives were hardened by discomfort, exposure to cold and wet, wretched food, medical neglect and harsh disciscipline. Chaplains withinsight came to understand the Navy's own moral code and used it to build upon. On some ships they were welcomed. On others they had to overcome indifference and, sometimes, open hostility. Waldo Smith recaptures here the flavour of this rugged bygone era." - from the rear of the dustjacket. Chapters 1.

"With the fisheries in disarray, the railway verging on bankruptcy, and the public debt unmanageable, Newfoundland's ship of state in 1921 appeared foundering and about to sink. That, at least, was the opinion of William Smith (1859-1932), historian and Deputy Keeper of Public Records in the Canadian Public Archives. Smith, who spent two months in St.John's in the spring of 1921 collecting material on the Labrador boundary dispute, concluded that, with the crisis imminent, it was only a matter of time before Newfoundlanders put aside their historic prejudice and sought relief in Confederation." - p.95.

University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, 1978, ISBN:0807813222 
SMITH, Woodruff D. The German Colonial Empire. Chapel Hill : The Universityof North Carolina Press, (1978). First Printing. Pp (4),v-xiii,(3),3-274. 8vo, blue cloth, silver lettering to spine. "Although Germany's short-livedcolonial empire (1884-1918) was neither large nor successful, it is histor ically significant. The establishment of German colonies and attempts to expand them affected international politics in a period of extreme tension. This book focuses on the interaction between Germany's colonial empire and German politics and, by extension, on the connection between colonialism andthe socioeconomic development of Germany before World War I.. The most imp ortant German possessions were four African territories: Southwest Africa, Togo, Cameroon, and German East Africa. Germany also controlled territoriesin the Pacific: northeastern New Guinea, part of Samoa, the Bismarcks, the Marshalls, the Carolines, the Marianas, and Kiaochow on the Shantung Penin sula in China. The empire was acquired at a time of profound change in the German social and economic structure. Industrialization, modernization of agriculture, with the resulting displacement of part of the rural population, the development of foreign trade, persistent emigration—all of these contributed to political thinking about colonial expansion and to the shitting political alignments of groups favoring and opposing it. The issue of colonialism thus played an important role as a source of political controversy and as a means of building political consensus in the Second Reich. Althoughthe framework of this book is narrative, the author devotes mucn perceptiv e analysis to economic and social background, the various business, official, and missionary interests, and the actual administration of the colonies." - from the dj.

Pp (14),[1]-389,(3). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. "The Kansas-born son ofa Presbyterian minister, Robert Menzies McAlmon became a central figure of the Lost Generation. After marrying the English poet and novelist Bryher, McAlmon expatriated to Paris, where his friendship with Joyce, Stein, Hemingway, and other young Left Bank writers led him to begin publishing ContactEditions, which, although financially unsuccessful, presented the works of many authors who were later to become well-known. Adrift Among Geniuses, t he only biography of McAlmon, offers a comprehensive picture of McAlmon's dealings with the geniuses of modern literature. The author explores the life of Robert McAlmon through his own writing; through the memoirs, autobiographies, and biographies of his contemporaries; and through his correspondence with such figures as Ezra Pound, Kay Boyle, H.D., William Carlos Williams, Katherine Anne Porter, and Sylvia Beach, including a number of previously unpublished letters. The photographs, some never before published, also present a fascinating view of Europe in the twenties. While drifting from California to Greenwich Village, London, and ultimately to Paris (with excursions to Germany, Italy, Spain, and Mexico), Robert McAlmon, the unappreciated writer, always managed to be an influence among the literary personalities of his time."

51991 SMUTS, R. Malcolm Court Culture and the Origins of a Royalist Tradition in Early Stuart England. First Edition in dsstjacket
University of Pennsylvania Press, Philadelphia, 1987, ISBN:0812280393 
SMUTS, R. Malcolm. Court Culture and the Origins of a Royalist Tradition inEarly Stuart England. Philadelphia : University of Pennsylvania Press, 198 7. First Edition. (6),[vi]-xiv,[1]-322. Illustrated. 8vo, red cloth, black lettering to spine. "R. Malcolm Smuts examines the fundamental cultural changes that occurred within the English royal court between the last decade of the sixteenth century and the outbreak of the Civil War in 1642. During this period the English court developed into one of the most sophisticated and cosmopolitan in all Europe. It acquired a taste for the drama and poetryof the English Renaissance and discovered the art and architecture of the European continent. Charles I, who reigned from 1625 to 1649, was arguably the most distinguished royal art patron of his generation. The court stylesthat emerged during his reign profoundly influenced the development of Eng lish aristocratic culture down to the nineteenth century Smuts treats the development of poetry and drama, art and architecture, music, pageantry, religion and intellectual culture in a social and political context. By providing a synthesis of perspectives which are normally treated separately, he gives an account of the cultural environment in which Charles reigned that is more systematic and balanced than any other currently in print. This full-scale reassessment of early Stuart court culture contributes to an understanding of the economics of cultural patronage and the outlook of early Stuart patrons and artists, including Inigo Jones, Ben Jonson and Charles himself. This book will be invaluable to historians seeking a deeper understanding of a topic that has been treated primarily impressionistically, and for art historians and literary critics who desire a fuller and more careful investigation of the environment in which court poets and artists worked."

51992 SMUTYLO, Allen Wild Places, Wild Hearts : Nomads of the Himalaya.

SMUTYLO, Allen. Wild Places, Wild Hearts : Nomads of the Himalaya. (Owen Sound, Ontario) : Tom Thomson Art Gallery, (2007). First Edition. Pp [i]-xv,(3),1-302. Illustrated. Oblong 8vo, grey paper covered boards, gilt lettering to front board and spine. "For the past 25 years, Canadian artist Allen Smutylo has travelled and created artwork in some of the most remote and desolate places on Earth. In the High Arctic, Patagonia, the Amazon, Antarctica, and the Himalaya, Smutylo has sought his muse. On a trip to eastern Ladakh in the central Himalaya in 2001, Smutylo encountered a small tribe of Tibetan Buddhist nomads known as the Changpa. That first fleeting vision of alegendary and wildly independent people stayed with the artist. Over the p ast five years, Smutylo has been creating a body of work that documents histravels and experiences with the nomadic peoples of the Himalayas, particu larly a tribe of 200 people called the Changpa who live on the eastern edgeof Ladakh, India, close to the Tibetan frontier. At an altitude of 15,000 feet in one of the world’s harshest environments, Smutylo had the rare opportunity to experience the highly complex and rich culture of the Changpa. In day-to-day life, sacred rituals and community celebrations, he observed and documented their unique lifestyle on the roof of the world. With these tribes, he found a well-adapted, proud people inextricably tied to the Himalayan mountains and to their herds of grazing animals. He also discovered that the nomads’ ability to sustain themselves, as they have for 2,000 years,is now at risk from a rapidly changing world. Passionately and richly depi cted in his artwork, Wild Places Wild Hearts: Nomads of the Himalaya takes the viewer into a strange and rarified world. Deeply spiritual, compassionate and archaic, the nomads’ culture has startling relevance for Western society. " - from the dj. Very good to fine in unclipped dustjacket. 40.00
