55607 TIMBERLAKE, James H Prohibition and the Progressive Movement 1909-1920. First Edition in dustjacket
Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1963, 
TIMBERLAKE, James H. Prohibition and the Progressive Movement 1909-1920. Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 1963. First Edition. Pp (14),[1]-238. Illustrated. Index. 8vo, navy blue cloth, silver lettering tospine. "The debate over prohibition was one of the most bitter controversi es in American legislative history. This book covers, for the first time, all of the prohibition movement's major aspects - religious, scientific, social, economic, political - in explaining its appeal, its composition, and the tempo of its development. Using contemporary magazines and newspapers along with other primary sources, Mr. Timberlake deals with the revival, rise, and triumph of the prohibition movement from 1900 to 1920. He analyzes all of the reasons why the average middle-class American took up the cause oftemperance reform, and he shows how the Anti-Saloon League and other tempe rance groups were able to mobilize public opinion and to bring about enactment of the Eighteenth Amendment. Public feeling ran so high, says the author, that hospitals reduced use of alcohol radically during this period. A Mississipsippi Congressman, mindful of public opinion, stated on the floor ofthe House that no more important issue faced that body. Mr. Timberlake con cludes that prohibition was not a freak movement accomplished by a small group of fanatics "while the boys were overseas," but an integral part of theProgressive Movement's plan to bring about a better society in which each individual would be freer to develop himself to the fullest. "Our cities throb with an intense social fever that is ready to burst forth into raging mania, disorder and anarchy," stated the Congregational Church Committee on Temperance. The "saloon continues to poison the blood in the veins of the towns, villages, and cities of this land ... [and] to destroy men many timesfaster than the church can rescue them." (from the dj). Contents : Introdu ction. 1. The Religious Argument. 2. The Scientific and Social Arguments. 3. The Economic Argument. 4. The Political Argument. 5. Pressure Politics: The Anti-Saloon League. 6. Toward a Dry Utopia. Very good in nicked, price-clipped dustjacket. 50.00

55608 TIMBRES, Henry TIMBRES, Rebecca WHITNEY, George Gillett We Didn't Ask Utopia : A Quaker Family in Soviet Russia. First Canadian edition in dustjacket
Progress Books, Toronto:, 1943, 
TIMBRES, Henry and Rebecca TIMBRES. We Didn't Ask Utopia : A Quaker Family in Soviet Russia. Toronto: Progress Books, 1943. First Canadian Edition. Illustrated by George Gillett Whitney. Pp. (4),v-xiii,(3),3-290. 8vo, blue cloth, silver lettering to front, top edge red. Not in Weinrich. The story ofthe struggle faced by an American Quaker doctor and his family when they m oved to a small Russian village in the mid 1930s. "Harry Garland Timbres was born in Missouri and brought up on a Canadian homestead in Alberta. He attended Leland Stanford University where he joined the Society of Friends, graduated from Haverford College in February, 1921, and sailed immediately to join the Friends' unit then operating in Poland. Rebecca Janney was the daughter of a Quaker physician in Baltimore. She had attended Goucher College, Teachers' College (Columbia) and the Vassar Training Camp for Nurses (Philadelphia) in 1920. She, too, sailed for Poland early in 1921 to join the Friends' unit, and met Harry Timbres in Warsaw. The two young pioneers weremarried on March 24, 1922, by civil ceremony in the free city of Danzig, f ollowed by a Quaker wedding in Warsaw. [...] The story of the twelve monthsbetween June, 1936, and June, 1937, as told in the pages of this book, see ms to me of the first importance for two reasons. In the first place, Harryand Rebecca Timbres have given us a picture of Russia in transition which is almost unique in its intimacy and vividness. We have had many books about Russia from diplomats, from journalists, from tourists; but this is something different. The authors never became party members; as Quakers, they could not be Communists. But they lived with the people and were accepted fully and completely in the brotherhood of a com mon task. Both Harry and Rebecca had unusual powers of vivid and intimate description. We see with them the sun- rise in the forest, the spring breakup of ice on the Volga. We face the difficulties of housekeeping on a worker's salary, we realize the problem of washing in a teacupful of water, we share the joy in the purchase of such rare luxu ries as two jars of preserved cherries, a flat plate of iron to use as a frying pan, and a washboard, "slightly depressed in vital spots but still usable." We attend meetings of the Medical Workers' Union andtake part in primitive masquerade parties at the Workers' Club. We see the life of the tavern and the village street. We feel the old Russian shiftle ssness and procrastination and the new Russian passion for achievement and efficiency in daily conflict. We catch the fervent idealism and the wellinghope of the masses and we hear, too, even in a far-off village, menacing u ndertones of the war of the new regime against its interior and foreign foes. The book is a fundamental contribution to a real comprehension of the Russia of today and tomorrow. In the second place, Harry and Rebecca Timbres have done something else in this book which was far from their own intent. In these intimate family letters and this personal diary, they have drawn for us a picture of themselves. This picture is of profound social significance, because it is the kind of people here made known to us who represent the hope of the world. They were not "enthusiasts" in the old and derogatorymeaning of that term. They were students of science, well and soundly trai ned as technicians, critical, objective, rational. But they were the kind of people, who, by instinct and almost without conscious decision, seek out the difficult and the dangerous tasks, in the service of humanity. It is well to become intimate with a man and woman of this type." - from the introduction..

(12),xiii-xv,(1),1-[463],(1), + 24 p. of black and white plates. Illustrated.8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "Christopher Wren (1632-172 3) was the greatest architect Britain has ever known. But he was more than that. A founder of the Royal Society, he mapped the moon and the stars, investigated the problems of longitude and the rings of Saturn, an carried outgroundbreaknig experiments into the circulation of the blood. His observat ions on comets, meteorology and muscular action made vital contributions tothe developing ideas of Newton, Halley and Boyle. 'His Invention So Fertil e' presents the first complete picture of this towering genius: the Surveyor-General of the King's Works, running the nation's biggest architectural office and wrestling with corruption and interference; the pioneering anatomist; the mathematician, devising new navigational instruments and lecturingon planetary motion. It also shows us the man behind the legend. Wren was married and widowed twice, he fathered a mentally handicapped child quarrelled with his colleagues and fell foul of his employers. He scrambled over building ites and went to the threatre and drank in coffee-houses. The book explores what ti was like to be at Oxford during the Commonwealth, as a generation struggled to make sense of a society in chaos; it recreates the tensions which tore apart the court of James II; it brings to life the petty jealousies that formed an integral part of both the building world and the scientific milieu of the Royal Society. Above all, 'His Invention So Fertile' makes clear to the general reader and the art historian just why Wren remains a cultural icon -- both a creation and a creator of the world he livedin." - from the dustjacket.

October 2, 1999, Halifax, conductor of Symphony Nova Scotia (beginning in 1987). The author was the composer's third wife. "Georg Tintner isbest known to music lovers for his stunning interpretations of Bruckner's symphonies recorded by Naxos in the 1990s. Tintner was a man who lived and breathed music. Blessed with perfect pitch, at the age of nine he was the first Jew to join the Vienna Boys' Choir. Later, he became immersed in the concert life of the city, rubbing shoulders with Berg, Schoenberg and Webern, and observing the great conductors of the age. But by the late 1930s Tintner had to flee and he eventually landed in Auckland, New Zealand. There could have been no greater contrast for this gifted young musician, yet he started a new life there before moving on to Australia and, much later, to Canada. Tintner's third wife and widow, Tanya, has documented the life of this uncompromising man and the result is a revealing window on the artistic temperament from the person closest to him. 'Out of Time' is a must-read foreveryone who believes in the discipline that excellence in the arts demand s -- and the pure joy it can bring." - from the rear cover. Very good.

Illustrated. 8vo, brown cloth spine with grey cloth boards, grey lettering to spine. The memoirs of the Newfoundland Liberal MP. "Brian Tobin's political career spanned some of the most dramatic moments of modern Canadian history. Elected in 1980 during the triumphantreturn of Pierre Trudeau, and serving under five prime ministers, Tobin wa s not only in the thick of the action - he often instigated it. Arriving from Newfoundland as a 25-year-old Liberal MP, Tobin was immediately immersedin the referendum for Quebec independence led by the charismatic Rene Leve sque, and then recruited to play a role in drafting the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. When Liberal leader John Turner lost a landslide election to Brian Mulroney's Conservatives, Tobin became a key member of the infamous Rat Pack, challenging the Tories daily in acrimonious debate. Yet, despite the sparks between them, Mulroney called on Tobin to help ease tensions at a critical juncture during efforts to ratify the Meech Lake accord. The return of the Liberals under Jean Chretien placed Fisheries Minister Brian Tobinat the help of a battle to save the lowly turbot -- the last food fish on the once-teeming Grand Banks. by seizing US fishing vessels, outmanoeuvringthe European Union in Brussels, and ordering a Canadian patrol vessel to f ire across the bow of a Spanish trawler, Tobin interrupted the rapacious practices of foreign fisheries on Canada's coasts. Later, he organized a massive rally in Montreal, which many believe helped swing the 1995 Quebec referendum toward federalism. In 1996, Tobin returned to Newfoundland and Labrador as Premier. Whether reforming the province's outmoded education system or conducting high-stakes negotiations over the development of the Voisey'sBay mine, Tobin exhibited the same fiery leadership." - from the dustjacke t.
