WALKER, Brian and Ann HINCHLIFFE. In Our Liverpool Home. (Belfast): Blackstaff Press, (1978). Pp. [1]-104. Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated card covers. "The Liverpool portrayed in the pages of this handsome book was a city at the meeting point of its Victorian past and its twentieth century present. The wealth and enterprise of its port, its industries and its commerce had made it a handsome city, with broad avenues and grand buildings: a place to be proud of, as many of the fine photographs in this book show. It was alsoa city whose people knew hardship, where barefoot urchins and careworn wom en were a common sight, and long hours and low wages were the lot of thousands of working people. But these same people could find pleasure in simple things: at the street markets, on trips to the seaside, or simply gossipingon the doorstep with a group of friends. At the turn of the century accoun ts of Liverpool and its life appeared in novels, songs, reports, and newspaper articles. The author' selection from these, together with their lucid and informative commentary combine with the photographers' work to create a superb portrait of the city and of the people to whom it was "Our LiverpoolHome."

Volume 10 in the Minding the Media series. "A Pedagogy of Powerful Communication calls for a revisioning ofsecond language and literacy teaching, arguing for a move away from skills -based ESL instruction where communication is treated as a set of pedagogical techniques, toward a pedagogy of powerful communication that views communication as necessary for effective participation in school, relationships,local/global communities, and democratic society. This pedagogy promotes c ritical multiliteracies and language development through youth engagement in the practices of media and artistic communities in and out of school, online, and on the airwaves. The argument for a pedagogy of powerful communication draws on evidence from current research; recommended curriculum and pedagogies are described in detail; and case studies provide an in-depth lookat processes of meaning making, identity work, knowledge and skill acquisi tion, and the key role that community mentors play in mediating youths’ thinking, emotion, and creative productions. This book will be highly useful for teachers and professors of literacy and language education, as well as researchers and theorists in the areas of youth media and arts, community-school-university collaborations, youth development, and research methodologies for studying individual and collective change in the context of educational innovation.

One day young Sandy McBain threw a stick into a stream, and when it floated out of sight under the wall which surrounded Miss Abigail Spens' house,what could Sandy do but follow it? In his sporran was a catapult, before h im on a branch sat a grey squirrel. Behind the squirrel shone the glass panes of a greenhouse.

The Colonel and his small daughter Sheila were s taying with the formidable Miss Abigail, while the Regiment was stationed at Altnadean. Sandy was in trouble — tresspass, wilful vandalism — who knew what other crime? So opens this story of childhood, where the life ol children and grown-ups is led in a good and simple land of heather, clouds, and grouse. But it is also a story of our day, where the idyllic world of Altnadean and the Regimnent has to come to terms with the tall factory chimney on the hill, whose shadow falls across the moors.

"'The Lord's Pink Ocean' demonstrates once again David Walker's remarkable versatility. In an isolated valley between steep hills twofamilies survive on either side of a blue lake: the Smiths with their son Ian and the Parkers with their daughter Mary. The lake is one of the few supplies of water still supporting life on earth, for pink algae, originally bred by men to scavenge filth, are now lethally out of control in almost every other source. The Parkers and the Smiths share the freedom of the valley, but they are prisoiners of a deadly world outside, prisoners too of one another. With their primitive tools, scanty knowledge and weakened livestock, life for them is that plain struggle for existence which has always beenman's fundamental lot. Like people alive on the earth today, these familie s know fear and desire, hunger and satisfaction, enmity and love, hardship and happiness. But the drone of a flying machine spells danger to them. Inevitably the arrival of visitors and the maturing of Ian and Mary bring mounting conflict and ultimately provide the novel with its powerful climax." -from the dustjacket.

A natural for starting a son's revolt. Fortunately our old friend, geordie's patron, the Laird of Drumfechan is still very much in the picture, and with his daft wisdom sees the cause of the trouble and conspires for its cure. "Maggie was no Jean - a monstrous hulf of a girl and Charlie's enemy to the death. But if Geordie had been able to make his puny self into the world's great shot putter, Maggie too, could work mircles - and did.

That visit had ended in tragedy; a friend they had made on the Mallabec had been swept over the rapids and drowned - a strange death for so experienceda fisherman. Hyde thought that the years had exorcised these memories from his and Moira's minds, but he discovered that the past could not be buried .

"Harry Black is David Walker's most ambitious novel. Set against the background of contemporary India, he takes as his central character Harry Black, a man who has been a soldier, a prisoner of war, and an unsuccessful husband. No one could say that Harry Black had lived up to the promise and the opportunities of his youth,and yet no one could write him off as finished. He stands at the threshold of middle age, a man of action and a leader by temperament. Can he meet th e challenge of his own future ? This is one of those novels in which the development of events and the analysis of character march so closely in step as to be indistinguishable. It is a novel of violent action, of divided loyalties, and of human love; but underlying the awful and enthralling tensionof the tiger hunt, the tragedies, the frustrations, and the rigours that i t involves, and beyond the developing relationship between Harry Black and Christian Tanner, there lies his growing self-awareness, his discovery thathis own picture of himself - and thus of life - is false." - from the dj.

None the less most people, u naware of these problems, would envy Tarquie his life even if they regardedDuncatto and its surrounding acres as a peaceful - perhaps too peaceful - backwater. David Walker's new novel which is at once a fantasy and a thriller, tells how that peace was violently and almost (but not quite) totally disrupted by the arrival of Harry Z. Gilpin, an American millionaire, as a tenant and of a melancholy but seductive widow and her awful son at the invitation of Lois. Gilpin took a house on the estate and was clearly up to something, though no one knew precisely what. Gloria, for such was the widow'sname, stayed at the castle and found in Tarquie a challenge she could not resist. Others besides the Duncatto household became interested in Harry Z.Gilpin's mysterious activities: the Secret Service is involved: battle is joined by Tarquie, his household and his retainers: the secret of Duncatto is revealed: blood flow s and corpses abound in a glorious climax as gripping as it might seem improbable, and so arranged that in the end one feels convinced that all those who survived live, and deserve to live, happily ever after." - from the dj flap.

A novel by this St.Andrews, N.B. writer. "'Husky Skafe was a man who suited things to him, who went where he was going . . .' and in addition he had the good fortune to be born in what maywell be counted the heroic age of Canada. In another time his energy, his single-minded vision and his love of adventure might have led him to another career. A buccaneer in Elizabethan times, an empire builder under Queen Victoria, but in Canada in the twentieth century he had to be what he became, an industrialist. Two years as a trapper on the MacKenzie River taught him to love the harsh life of the North and opened his eyes to the opportunities that lay there. The vision he saw in those bright days of his youth remained the driving motive behind his subsequent triumphs - ruthlessly achieved, constructive in their purpose, and to the ordinary man of business almost foolhardy in their conception. Of course in the process he acquired great riches and enjoyed to the full the power he understood so well. But always that early vision remained his paramount ambition - to open up the North,to exploit its vast potentiality. For Canada? For him? For Canada through him. This is the adventure to which David Walker has put his talent as a novelist and Simon Kepple Skafe, S.K., Husky Skafe is the hero who dominates the story. But he is hardly a simple man, and business can never be the whole of life. Included in the early vision which came to him on the MacKenzieRiver was Anna, his wife, the mother of his children - his son, whom he tr ied to mould in his own image; his beautiful daughter, who alone could meethim and match him in all respects. But Anna was by far the most important and also the most difficult person in his life. If Simon Skafe was a man devoted to making what he made with all the concentration of an artist, Anna was a woman who demanded a share with her competitors. Here was a dilemma that Husky failed to solve and an adventure which was never over." from the dj. Skafe is from New Brunswick of Loyalist stock.

"Dragon Hill was what they called that wild-looking place on the rocky Atlantic Coast, and a good name for it, too, for behind the threatening 'Keep off!' sign lived a ferocious old hermit who repelled invaders with his shotgun. What other perils and mysteries might be there too? It was chance more than daring that led William and his Scottish cousin Mary to accept the terrifying hospitality of Captain McDurgan, the Master of Dragon Hill. There was a searing drought thta summer, and as the August days became more and more unbearable it began to seem as if events were sweeping to some terrible climax, as if things were losing their reality, as if life might be part of the novel that William's father was driving to complete. And then the storm broke - a storm that brought great seas to flood the coast, that smashed the good along with the bad, that took Captain McDurgan to sea again in the strangest vessel that he had ever commanded ... and perhaps in the end it brought him back to a harbor that he had too long abandoned." - from the dj.

Pp (6),7-256. 8vo, blue cloth, blackand red lettering to spine. "Few men have enjoyed sucn a swift and brillia nt success as Richard Brinsley Sheridan. This story of the most important years of his lite, which witnessed his achievements as a dramatist and as a politician, begms in 1770 when his father moved to Bath, where the nineteen-year-old Richard, already noted for his wit, met the lovely Elizabeth Linley. Joan Walker tells how Sheridan fought against his love for the young singer, of whose family his father disapproved, until, realizing that he could not live without her, he carried her off virtually from under her father's nose and married her. In addition to the portraits of this matchless pair, there are here a number of others equally unforgettable if drawn to a smaller scale, including those of the two fathers, Thomas Sheridan and Thomas Linley, of Charles James Fox and of David Garrick, whose moving farewell tothe stage is among the many vividly pictured scenes in the novel."

A photographic tour of the interiors of cruising yachts, ranging from the comfortably modest to the hideously ostentatious. "There is something special about a classic yacht-something that captures the imagination of sailor and landsman alike. The crisp silhouette of a sloop in the red-gold path of the sun, or the low purr of a motor yacht dissolving into a morning's fog invites the dreamer to come aboard, to imagine the exotic lands lying just beyond the mind's horizon. Down Below provides a full-color tour of the interiors of these classic yachts. They were built all over the world and have bee owned by the famous and the infamous. Their ports of call include the most idyllic spots known to man. The degree of opulence of the interiors is often determine by the use to which the yacht is put: some are charter boats; others live-aboards; a number have had a variety of exciting careers. Each yacht reveals the designer's taste and priorities: some were built to be comfortable; some to be fast; and a few are palatial. Matthew Walker has traveled to fourteen countries to photograph these yachts and to gather their histories, the stories of their design, and their various adventures. The result is the first book ever on yacht interiors-a chance for everyone to get a good look Down Below." - from the dj.

Oblong 8vo, illustrated green and grey card covers. Walker was the wife of Canadian novelist David Walker, and moved to St. Andrews in 1948. "Late in the 19th century, St. Andrews was discovered by a privileged few who sought a summer place by the sea. Escaping the continent's largest cities, they bought, rented, or built houses, returning year after year. The luxurious Algonquin Hotel was opened, and in a few short years a summer society was established, wtih Fathers of Confederation Sir Leonard Tilley and Sir Charles Tupper andthe great railway builders Sir William Van Horne and Lord Shaughnessy. The 'barefoot' steel tycoon Sir James Dunn and his friend Lord Beaverbrook spe nt their summers in St. Andrews, as did an eclectic blend of new and returning visitors, including politicians from Canada's war production minister C.D. Howe to former Prime Minister John n. Turner, and artists such as ballroom dancer Irene Castle and composer Irving Berlin. In 'Summers in St. Andrews', Willa Walker chronicles the lives and homes of the summer people. Drawing upon archival records and her own memories of summers past, she blendsnostalgia with sharp observation to record the eccentricities and achievem ents of this distinctive society." - from rear.

58084 WALL, Kathleen ATWOOD, Margaret) Callisto Myth from Ovid to Atwood : Initiation and Rape in Literature
McGill-Queens University Press, Montreal and Kingston, 1988, ISBN:0773506403 
WALL, Kathleen. The Callisto Myth from Ovid to Atwood : Initiation and Rapein Literature. Montreal and Kingston: McGill-Queens University Press, (198 8). Pp. (6),[vii]-viii,(2),[1]-227,(3). 8vo, white cloth with black lettering to spine. "Illustrating the power and transcendence of the patriarchy, the myth of Callisto demonstrates the vulnerability of women to that power. Beginning her analysis with classical versions of the myth, Kathleen Wall parallels Callisto's rape by Zeus with the rape of femininity by the patriarchy and its institutions. Older versions of the myth do not emphasize a rape, but rather a sacred marriage intended to renew Arcadia. In this context the myth describes the ritual encounter with a representative of the gods through which yougn women were initiated into their sexuality. Tracing the myth through fifteen works of English, American, and Canadian literature, Kathleen Wall gives a fresh, feminist reading of these narratives. Among the works analyzed from the perspective of how the myth informs art are selections by Margaret Atwood, Charlotte Bronte, Thomas Hardy, and George Eliot. Through her analysis, Wall reveals many facets of the realities of women's experience from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century. In these examples rape is shown to be an expression of power rather than lust, giving increased support to the definition suggested by feminists." - from the dust jacket. Contents: 1. Classical Versions and Their Implications; 2. Callisto in the Medieval and Renaissance Traditions; 3. 'A Mask Presented at Ludlow Castle': The Armour of Logos; 4. 'Mysteries of Udolpho': Mysteries of the Forest; 5. 'Jane Eyre': Even Plain Jane Can Be a Nymph; 6. 'The Scarlet Letter':The Power of Society's Sacred Sanctions; 7. 'Adam Bede': Woman Empowered; 8.

"Six weeks ago we were all living scholastically placid andhappy lives. There was nothing, we thought, that could disturb the academi c calm that had settled around us, nothing that could interrupt us in the pursuit of our several curricula. Even the intrusion of painters, of plumbers, and of joiners, and the presence in our midst of clergymen and deaconesses and Science Committees was allowed to pass unheeded. We took care that nothing should interfere with the even tenor of our way. The truth is, we were so centred in ourselves, as individuals, that we were forgetting our common interests and our common . "All one people we," and yet we were doing nothing to show our unity. Or perhaps it was that, convinced of our own vastsuperiority, we were resting on our oars, and allowing ourselves to drift whither the tide of our prosperity might list to send us. In short, we werenot as we should be at this time'of day—aggressive. Six weeks ago there ca me amongst us an idea (not that ideas are of so rare occurrence with us as to need recording in this precise fashion) but this particular idea was an idea with a capital "I"—it was a capital idea. Its arrival brought about many changes. The most careicss observer could not help noticing that something was in the air. Class meetings began to to be held, at which the discussions were lively and ennthusiastic. Then they ceased. The plot thickened, however, when it leaked out that the ringleaders were holding meetings at all sorts of times and places. These were very cunningly planned. The time ofno two meetings were the same, and the rendezvous was always being changed . The eavesdropper heard only animated whisperings, but when at last one ofthese avowed that he distinctly overheard the word "Magazine," the excitem ent rose to fever heat. "Gunpowder !" gasped the more nervous, and forthwith despatched the janitor to search the cellars. The bolder pooh-poohed thisconjecture, but it was not comforting to notice that they pooh-poohed more when in numbers than when alone. You, dear reader, hold in your hands as y ou read, the solution to all this mystery. The hole-and-corner meetings were but the harmless consultations of an Editorial Committee, whose aim was one, not of conspiracy, but of consolidation, and the culmination of the publication of this, the Wallace Hall Academy School Magazine, whose mission is to make real,our unity, and.to intensify our loyalty to the School to which we owe so much more than we are yet able to estimate.?

WALLACE, Anthony F. C. The Social Context of Innovation : Bureaucrats, Families, and Heroes in the Early Industrial Revolution, as Foreseen in Bacon'sNew Atlantis. Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press, (1982). First E dition. Pp (4),v-xiii,(3),3-175,(3). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, cream cloth, maroon lettering to spine. "In his prize-winning Rockdale, Anthony F. C. Wallace proposed a novel way of looking at the history of technology by taking society as a starting point. Based on his 1981 Stafford Little Lectures at Princeton University, this book extends the author's vision by examining the social circumstances of early industrial innovation. As Francis Bacon recognized when he imagined the technological Utopia of New Atlantis, technology is a social product, vitally affected by its institutional setting. Focusing on the Industrial Revolution, these three essays discuss the development of the steam engine, progress in iron production, and a failure in thecoal mining industry, exploring the structure of communities, trades, and workshops where innovation occurred. The first essay shows how the British royal ordnance and naval establishments which had staffs and facilities forexperimental weaponry, unintentionally nourished the development of the st eam engine in a process that lasted nearly 100 years. The second essay describes the Darby family of Coalbrookdale, whose firm in three geneerations introduced and nearly completed the transition from charcoal to coke in making iron. These two cases demonstrate the value of a stable transgenerational organization for the growth of technology. The third essay, however, shows how part of an industry — deep shaft coal mining in nineteenth-century Pennsylvania — went bankrupt in the hands of poorly capitalized operators whoignored available safety procedures."

"Long renowned as one of the smartest writers on the loose,David Foster Wallace reveals himself in Consider the Lobster to be also on e of the funniest. In these pages he ranges far and farther in his search for the original, the curious, or the merely mystifying. His quest takes himinto the three-ring circus of a presidential race to ask, among other urge nt questions, why it is that the circles journalists walk in while whispering into their cell phones are always counterclockwise. He discovers the World's Largest Lobster Cooker at the Maine Lobster Festival and confronts theinevitable question just beyond the butter-or-cocktail-sauce quandary. He plunges into the wars among dictionary writers, deconstructing once and forall the battles between descriptivists and prescriptivists. And he talks h is way into an LA radio studio, bearing buckets of fried chicken, to get anuncensored view of a conservative talk show and its alarmingly attired hos t." (from the dj).

These are worlds undreamt by any other mind. Only David Foster Wallace could convey a father's desperateloneliness by way of his son's daydreaming through a teacher's homicidal b reakdown. [...] Or explore the deepest and most hilarious aspects of creativity by delineating the office politics surrounding a magazine profile of an artist who produces miniature sculptures in an anatomically inconceivableway. [...] Or capture the ache of love's breakdown in the painfully polite apologies of a man who believes his wife is hallucinating the sound of his snoring." - from the dustjacket. Includes the following stories: "Mister S quishy", "The Soul Is Not a Smithy", "Incarnations of Burned Children", "Another Pioneer", "Good Old Neon", "Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature", "Oblivion", and "The Suffering Channel". Very good in crisp, unclipped dustjacket. 35.00

58099 WALLACE, David Foster. Pale King. An Unfinished Novel. First Edition in dustjacket.
Little, Brown, Boston, 2011, ISBN:9780316074230 
WALLACE, David Foster. The Pale King. An Unfinished Novel. New York / Boston / London: Little, Brown and Company, (April 2011). First Printing. Pp. (4),v-x,(2),[1]-548. 8vo, black paper covered boards, silver lettering to spine. "The agents at the IRS Regional Examination Center in Peoria, Illinois,appear ordinary enough to newly arrived trainee David Foster Wallace. But as he immerses himself in a routine so tedious and repetitive that employees receive bordeom-survival training, he learns of the extraordinary varietyof personalities drawn to this strange calling. And he has arrived at a mo ment when forces within the IRS are plotting to eliminate what little humanity and dignity the work still has. 'The Pale King' remained unfinished at the time of David Foster Wallace's death, but it is a deeply compelling andsatisfying novel, hilarious and fearles and as original as anything Wallac e ever undertook. It grappes directly with ultimate questions -- questions of life's meaning and of the value of work and society -- through characters imagined with the interior force and generosity that were Wallace's unique gifts. Along the way it suggests a new idea of heroism and commands infinite respect for one of the most daring writers of our time." - from the dustjacket. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 30.00
