The canal became a corridor and a gateway to the hinterland. Most of themills that once clung to the river shores are now ghostly reminders of a s pectacular industrial heritage. An important architectural tradition envelopes the entire village, reflecting the character of the people who built and lived in the buildings, and those who have lovingly restored them.” - from the back cover.

Nothing is known about his formal education, but there is some evidence that Turner in his youth had been a bricklayer by trade with a strong interest in ornithology. [...] He died in oblivion. "This monograph is a very good example of what a gifted naturalist with a keen sense of observation could achieve in a highly exotic environment. Turner's task was difficult; it consisted in the description of the ways and customs of two unrelated yet neighbouring peoples, the Koksoakmiut inhabting the littoral at the bottom of Ungava Bay and the Naskapi Indians occupying the inland areas below the tree line. The author sojourned in the Fort Chimo area in the early 1880's and during his prolonged stay was able to accumulate much data first hand. This Ethnology of the Ungava District presents a rounded picture of local culture covering such diverse items as marriage, child rearing, burial customs, religion, clothing, dwellings, household articles, food preparation, transportation devices, weapons, hunting methods, games, folklore, etc." - from Balakci's foreword.

56416 TURNER, Nancy J., and Adam F. SZCZAWINSKI SZCZAWINSKI, Adam F. Edible Wild Plants of Canada, No. 3 Edible Wild Fruits and Nuts of Canada
National Museum of Natural Sciences, Ottawa, Canada, 1979, ISBN:0660001284 
TURNER, Nancy J., and Adam F. SZCZAWINSKI. Edible Wild Fruits and Nuts of Canada. (Ottawa, Canada) : National Museum of Natural Sciences, (1979). Pp (4),5-212. Illustrated. Square 8vo, metallic spiral bound, illustrated dark brown card covers, lettered in white. Edible Wild Plants of Canada, No. 3. Of all the different kinds of wild foods used by man, wild fruits are without doubt the most widely enjoyed- and usually the easiest to gather and prepare. Few people realize that rice and other grains, sumac, sunflower seeds, and pond-lily seeds are fruits. Nuts, of course, are also fruits, but because they are rarely recognized as such, except in botanical terms, they are specifically referred to in the title of this book. Nutritionally, wild fruits are as rich in vitamins and minerals as cultivated fruits, lower in sugar and calorie content, and free of wax coating, chemical sprays or artificial ripening agents. What's more, wild fruits nearly always taste better than their cultivated counterparts. There are over 35 species included in this guide and cookbook for wild-food gourmets. Each section contains a botanical description, notes on general habitat and distribution, a drawing or colour photograph, and information on the folklore of each plant, with notes on its historical, medicinal, or cosmetic uses. Also included are a largeselection of recipes for jams, jellies, beverages, wines, pies, desserts, main dishes and snacks. Some of these are based on recipes that were used by the Indians and the Inuit, or by early pioneers." (from the back cover). Contents : Preface. Introduction : What is a Fruit? The Value of Wild Fruits. Gathering and Preparing Wild Fruits. A Necessary Caution. Format. EdibleWild Feuits and Nuts : Wild rice and other wild grains. Staghorn sumac and smooth sumac.

56417 TURNER, R.L. School of Oriental and African Studies series A Comparative Dictionary of the Indo-Aryan Languages. First Edition in dustjacket.
Oxford University Press, London, 1966, 1966 
TURNER, R.L. A Comparative Dictionary of the Indo-Aryan Languages. London : Oxford University Press, 1966. First Printing. Pp. [i]-xx,[1]-841,(3). Double column. Large 4to, green cloth with gilt lettering to spine.

"Indo-aryan is the term applied to that branch of Indo-European languages which was brought into India by the Aryans and of which the oldest recorded form is to be found in the hymns of Rgveda. From this there developed on the one hand a literary medium, called Sanskrit, which has been the vehicle down almost to the present day of a vast literature; and on the other hand a great range of spoken forms which, used by hundreds of millions, have emerged as the chief languages (excluding the Dravidian of southern India) of the whole of Pakistan, India, Nepal and Ceylon: Sindhi, Lahnda or Western Panjabi, Panjabi, Kashmiri, Western and Central Pahari, Nepali, Assemese, Bengali, Oriya, Bihari, Maithili, Awadhi, Hindi and Urdu, Rajasthani dialects, Gujarati, Marathi, Konkani, Sinhalese. Indo-aryan languages with many archaic features - the Kafiri and Dardic dialects - are still spoken in the valleys of the Hindu Kush on both sides of the Afghan-Pakistan border, while the Gypsies of Europe and Asia, like the Doms and Hunza, still use forms of the Indo-aryan dialect they brought out of India. In the far south Sinhalese was carried fromC eylon out into the Indian Ocean to the Maldive Islands.

In this book, originally planned to be a volume of the Linguistic Survey of India, the author has tried to do for these languages in their development from Sanskrit something of what Meyer Lübke in his Romanisches Etymologisches Wörterbuch did fro the Romance Languages of Latin. Under some 15,000 Sanskrit head-words are set out forms each has assumed both in Middle Indo-aryan (Pali, Prakrit, etc.) and in the modern languages, thus presenting a picture of linguistic development over some three millennia." - from the dj.

Like all of Turner's characters, Wallace is less likely to know what a screwdriver is for than to have travelled the world, looking for meaning. Not that Turner ever attempts to give the whole meaning of anything. Each story is intended as a snapshot of a moment in time. Turner's spare and minimalist prose forces the reader to look between the lines, where many questions are asked, but frew are answered." - from the rear cover.

Includes the following stories:
"Losing Teeth",
"Isaac the Brain",
"Footnote",
"Consolations of a Night Sky",
"In Blood",
"The Bear",
"Echo",
"Hands-On",
"What We're Made Of",
"Lung-Shaped", and
"Love Long".

56429 TUROW, Joseph Playing Doctor : Television, Storytelling, and Medical Power. First Printing in dustjacket

TUROW, Joseph. Playing Doctor : Television, Storytelling, and Medical Power. New York / Oxford : Oxford University Press, 1989. First Printing. Pp (8),[vii]-xx,(2),3-315,(7),+ 8 pp plates. Index. 8vo, green cloth spine, grey paper covered boards, silver lettering to spine. "Prime-time medical dramashave stamped the American mind with an indelible gallery of physicians. Dr . Kildare, Ben Casey, Hawkeye Pierce, Trapper John, and Marcus Welby are more widely recognized than any living physician, and in many cases are more trusted as well. In Playing Doctor, a colorful and highly perceptive history of TV medical series, Joseph Turow offers an entertaining inside look at how these shows were created. He provides a detailed history of the programs, an analysis of changing public perceptions of doctors and medicine, and an insightful commentary on how medical dramas have exploited and even shaped these perceptions. The pressures brought to bear on the creators of prime-time television are various and powerful and, as Turow demonstrates, in no area of TV is this more evident than on medical dramas. Turow excells at depicting the wheeling and dealing among network executives, powerful advertisers, interest groups such as the Catholic Church, egotistical actors, contentious writers and, most notably, the medical establishment. He reveals that, from the very first show--Medic, which premiered in 1954--these programs relied on the medical establishment for authentic locations, expert advice, and official blessing, to convince viewers that what they saw was authentic. But organized medicine's help came at a price--to society as well asto TV storytellers. It gave the AMA and other medical organizations consid erable power over scripts. And it encouraged a wide gap between the view ofmedicine that policy makers (including medical administrators) now hold an d the view that TV fiction presents. For instance, television presents medical care as an unlimited resource, but administrators (from the heads of small hospitals to high-ranking government officials) all see medical care asa limited commodity. The gap continues because of TV producers' adherence to outmoded assumptions about the medical world as well as the medical community's reluctance to encourage the public to think about changes in healthcare. Based on interviews with numerous actors, producers, writers, and te levision executives--including Larry Gelbart, Vince Edwards, Elliot Gould, Sterling Silliphant, Howie Mandell, and Brandon Tartikoff--Playing Doctor reveals what happens when a powerful American institution tries to guide TV's fictional representation of its members and itself. It is sure to ignite discussion and controversy among people who care about television's role inAmerican society." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction. 1. Internes can 't take money. 2.

56431 TURSHEN, Meredith Political Ecology of Disease in Tanzania. in dustjacket
Rutgers University Press, New Brunswick, N.J., 1984, ISBN:0813510309 1984 0813510309 
TURSHEN, Meredith. The Political Ecology of Disease in Tanzania. New Brunswick, N.J. : Rutgers University Press, (1984). Pp (6),vii-xiv,(4),1-259,(3).Frontispiece. Double-page map. Index. 8vo, pale yellow cloth, green lettering to spine.

"In this pathbrealking study, Meredeth Turshen argues that illness is not the inevitable consequence of climate or geography in the East African country of Tanzania, but grew as colonialism and captalism did. Colonial rule changed the ecology as well as the economy of the country: new political regimes imposed frontiers that did not respect African settlement, restricted the movement of transhumant groups, and forced men to leave their families in search of work. In these ways politics transformed the physical landscape. European exploration also brought new diseases, and wars ofconquest touched off epidemics. Whereas before colonial rule localized fam ines had recurred periodically, with the introduction of cash cropping, plantation farming and the migrant labor system, malnutrition became a chronic condition everywhere.

Colonial exploitation affected Tanzanian women in particular: it lowered their social position, robbed them of their function as valued food producers, eliminated their political power, and reduced them to economic dependency. These changes impaired the health and nutrition of women and their families, as well as women's ability to provide informal health care to their kin. Africans were not passive in the face of colonial oppression. They resisted imperialist economic policies and rebelled against European political authority; their struggles for better living and working conditions culminated in independence in 1981. The new government sought to meet the basic needs of the Tanzanian people, and on at least two counts it achieved a measure of success: income is now more equally distributed among households in rural and urban areas, and public services have been reformed and expanded and are now more equally accessible to all. More controversial — and less successful - are its programs to reorient the system of production." (from the dj).

"This study of the Indian Ocean further confirms the hypothesis that there is vast disparity in fishery situations throughout the world. In this ocean, there are only a few high-value stocks that have been fished to the point where inceases in fishing effort will not produce increases in levels of catch. Instead, there are many opportunities for further development of fisheries.The most critical problem is that of developing adequate scientific information because the serious deficiency that exists is one of the major impediments to further development.

TWAIN, Mark. A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. Toronto: G.M. Rose and Sons, (1889). Pp. [i]-xv,(1),17-575,(3). Illustrated, including plates. Large 8vo, forest-green cloth with gilt lettering "A Yankee in King Arthur's Court" to front and spine. See Merle Johnson's A Bibliography of Mark Twain, pp.50-52 for points of the American first. A very early Canadian printing (first?) of Twain's classic satirical novel about a New Englander's time-travel adventure to the time of King Arthur (predating H.G. Wells's more thoroughly-explained voyage by six years). The question as to whether or not this volume is, indeed, a first Canadian printing, is compounded by theproblem that G.M. Rose and Sons were not consistent in their identifying f irst states of this volume (or subsequent printings, for that matter). The illustration on page 59, of "The King", features the tell-tale letter "S" between the two title words. This same notification occurred in the same plate in the first American printing, and was removed from later printings. Given that the "S" also appears in the 1890 Rose printing of the book, it appears as if Rose continued to use the sheets of the first American printing for subsequent prinings of the book. Throwing yet another curveball into the cloudiness of determining this volume's state, the tail of the spine reads "Hunter & Rose", though there is no indication found in the volume of it having been printed by Hunter. There is no advertisement at the rear of this volume. There is also no date on the title page. The copyright page reads: "Entered according to the Act of the Parliament of Canada, in the year one thousand eight hundred and eighty-nine, by Andrew Chatto, at the Department of the Agriculture".

New Ireland Press, Fredericton, 1986, ISBN:0920483054 1986 0920483054 
TWEEDIE, R.A. On With The Dance : A New Brunswick Memoir 1935-1960. (Fredericton, New Brunswick) : New Ireland Press, (1986). First Edition. Pp (6),vii-x,(2),[3]-200,(6). With 20 pages of b&w photos in the text. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

"On With The Dance is the memoir of Robert Allison (Bob) Tweedie, an extraordinary Canadian who was born [September 3, 1908, in Centreville, Carleton COunty, New Brunswick] and has lived most of his life, in New Brunswick, a provincve that has provided more than its share of charismatic charachters.

For more than half a century, as a wielder of political influence, a civil servant, and latterly, as a man of many interests, he has enjoyed the trust and friendship of a number of pwerful figures in politics, journalism and the arts.

A born teller of tales and a keen observer of the world around him, Tweedie has known well such diverse personalities as Lord Beaverbrook, Fanny Hurst and Ted Williams, and his recollections of them make for fascinating reading.

But above all, Tweedie has been a political animal, credited with ushering in the modern age of Canadian political advertising in a 1944 provincial election. His close association with the three New Brunswick premiers about whom he writes provided him with an insider's view of provincial politics that should be revealing for Maritimers and of interest to political junkies wherever they may be.

His benign appearance and courtly manner, so disarming to old friends and acquaintances, mask an outrageous sense of humor inherited, presumably, from an even more outrageous Uncle Charlie, some of whose legendary escapades are fully chronicled.

There is much laughter in the pages of this memoir and a great deal of entertainment. It is provided bv a man with an immense zest for life and a tolerance for human frailty whose innate toughness has stood him in good stead in dealing with those whose egos frequently matched their success in life.

Here is an opportunity to meet him.Don't miss it. " from the dj. Very good in dustjacket. 15.00

"Fifteen yearsbefore Lewis and Clarke Scotsman Alexander Mackenzie, looking to open up a trade route, set out from Lake Athabasca in central Northern Canada in sea rch of the Pacific Ocean. Mackenzie travelled by bark canoe and had a cacheof rum and a crew of Canadian voyageurs, hard-living backwoodsmen, for com pany. Two centuries later, in a spirit of organic authenticity, Robert Twigger follows in Mackenzie's wake. He too travels the traditional way, havingpainstakingly built a canoe from birchbark sewn together with pine roots, and assembled a crew made up of fellow travelers, ex-tree-planters and a former sailor from the US Navy. After the ice has melted, Twigger and his crew of wandering spirits finally nose out into the Athabasca River ... Three Years ...two thousand miles ...over one thousand painfully towing the canoeagainst the current ...several had tried before them but they were the fir st people to successfully complete Mackenzie's diabolical route over the Rockies in a birchbark canoe since 1793. Subsisting on a diet of porridge, elk and jackfish, supplemented with whisky and a bag of grass for the treeplanters, and with an Indian medicine charm bestowed by the Cree People of FoxLake, the voyageurs embark on an epic road trip by canoe ...a journey to t he remotest parts of the wilderness, through Native American reservations, over mountains, through rapids and across lakes, meeting descendants of Mackenzie and unhinged Canadian trappers, running out of food, getting lost and miraculously found again, disfigured for life (the ex-sailor loses his thumb), bears brown and black, docile and grizzly. Voyageur is a moving tale of contrasts from the bleak industrial backwaters of Canada to the desolatewonder of the Rocky Mountains." (from the dj). Contents : Part One : First Attempt. 1.

McGill-Queens Studies in the History of Medicine, Health and Society, number 23.

"Medical laboratory workers play a crucial role in the health care system, but are often hidden from public view. Unlike many previous histories of Canadian health care, "Labour in the Laboratory" offers an intimate portrait of the women (and a few men) who laboured at the bench. In a detailed analysis of local hospital records, membership records, newspapers, professional health care journals, and other sources, Peter Twohig shows that the history of health care looks different when seen from the perspective of workers other than physicians or nurses.

"Labour in the Laboratory" is also about the ways in which health care work has been organized. Twohig reveals that many health care workers fulfilled multiple challenging traditional ideas of professional boundaries and exclusive control over particular tasks. Using evidence from the Maritime provinces, he challenges assumptions about health care work and hospital development throughout Canada and beyond." - from the dj.

"'Ananda Devi: Feminism, Narrationand Polyphony' is the first full-length monograph devoted to Ananda Devi, a dynamic contemporary Francophone writer. Recipient of Prix Louis-Gilloux and Prix Television Suisse Romande du Roman, she is described by many as a prototype of a new generation of Mauritian writers. This book analyses Devi's unconventional polyphonic narratives, particularly, her strategies that allow marginalized narrators to disrupt androcentric and dominant structures of narrative construction, thereby creating hybrid magical spaces for feminine expression. Drawing on the notion of feminist narratology that investigates the relation between gender and narrative, this book focuses on a wide range of Western and non-Western narrative strategies such as plot and plotlessness, narrative metalepsis, pluritemporality, multisubjectivity, myths, folktales and magic. It also demonstrates how her texts become teh point of convergence of the West and the non-West, the feminine and the androcentric, the real and the extra-real as muted discourses resurface and traditional distinctions between categories are blurred in favor of alternate andnew possibilities. As this book is interdisciplinary in its approach, it w ill appeal to a broad range of audience from those interested in Contemporary Francophone and Indian-Ocean Literature to scholars in Women's Writing, Post-Colonial Studies, and Narratology." - from rear.

Tyler's tenth novel, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the winner of the 1985 National Book Critics Circle Award. "The time is now. The place is the Baltimore Anne Tyler has made her own. Her protagonist is Macon Leary, and he is the prototype of the 'accidental tourist'. He hates travel. Which is why he is so singularly equipped to make his living as theanonymous author of a series of chunky passport-size guidebooks called 'Ac cidental Tourist in...', whose logo is a comfortable armchair with wings, and whose ideal reader is the businessman abroad who longs for a king-size Beautyrest in Madrid, a taste of Sweet'n'Low in Tokyo, and a restaurant in Rome that will serve Chef Boyardee. Macon is someone who himself travels through life accidentally. Things just happen to him -- he doesn't seek them out. His only child has been killed in a senseless accident; his wife for noapparent reason asks for a separation, leaving him to fend for himself; a broken leg conveniently thrusts him back home with his sister and brothers in the family house where he started out. Surely it is an accident that he gets involved with the astonishing Muriel, the frizzy-haired, stiletto-heeled, nonstop talker who does the bookings at the kennels where Maon boards his unmanageable Welsh corgi, Edward, when he has to go on one of his fact-finding trips. But gradually what seems like accident is tinged with purpose, and the comfortably familiar is disturbed by the impulse toward escape. Only Anne Tyler -- with her instinct for getting at the wonderful, irrational underside of human nature, for playing out this tension that is at the heart of the real adventure of life -- could make the education of Macon Leary so irresistible." - from the dustjacket.

"October 12,1992, will mark the five hundredth anniversary of the meeting of the Indian world and the Christopher Columbus party on an island in the Bahamas.

The bulk of this work presents texts from the period, carefully selected andarranged to portray the Indians as the Europeans themselves came to see th em. The account proceeds chronologically following the spread of European exploration and gives the reader a dynamic view of the inhabitants of the Indian world and the changes they underwent as a result of European contact during the seventeen-vear period from 1492 to 15089. Dr. Tyler's interest inthe role of the Spanish sovereigns, particularly Oueen Isabela, is manifes t in the text and in an appendix dealing with a codicil she left her to herwill regarding the treatment of the Indians. Other primary figures in this saga include members of Columbus's family, Fray Bartolome de las Casas, wh ose writings make him an important witness, the Indian rulers Guacanagari and the lady Anacaona, and Diego Colon, a captured Indian interpreter who was taken to Spain and later returned on cOlumbus's seond voyage."
