60305 WINSLOW, D. Kenelm Mayflower Heritage : A Family Record of the Growth of Anglo-American Partnership. First British Edition in dustjacket

WINSLOW, D. Kenelm. Mayflower Heritage : A Family Record of the Growth of Anglo-American Partnership. London [et al] : George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., (1957). Firt Edition. Pp (4),5-200, frontispiece + 10 pp plates. Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "In Mayflower Heritage the author, from a unique collection of family records, traces the development of the NewEngland Colonies through the eyes of his ancestors. This is history-in-the -making seen at domestic level, and a most intriguing and dramatic form of biography. The story of the Winslow family from its origins to the present is fraught with events of historic significance-—exile in Holland, the Mayflower voyage of 1620, pioneer days in New England, the Salem Witch trials, the Boston Tea Party—all involving this famous 'Old Colony' family. There are wars with the Indians and the French, and then, in tragic circumstances,the family is split by the War of Independence. The closing of this rift—t he reconciliation of 'Patriots' and 'Loyalists'— symbolizes Anglo-American relations in the nineteenth century; and like the voyage of Mayflower II—with which publication coincides—this spirited romantic, and often diverting history should help to promote Anglo-American understanding in the twentieth." (from the dj). Contents : 1. Prelude to America. 2. The "Mayflower" Adventure. 3. Pilgrim Pioneers. 4. Indian Interlude. 5. The Pilgrim and the Prelate. 6. "Brother Jonathan." 7. Old Colony Heyday. 8. Rift and Rebellion. 9. Exile. 10. The Victorians. 11. "Decoptus Floreo." A Selective Bibliography. Faint foxing to edges, else very good in rubbed, chipped and torn, but unclipped, dustjacket. 16.00

WINSLOW, Donna. The Canadian Airborne Regiment in Somalia : A Socio-cultural Inquiry. [Ottawa] : Commission of Inquiry into the Deployment of Canadaian Forces to Somalia, (1997). Pp (4),[v]-x,[1]-330. Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated card covers, lettered in blue. A study prepared for the Commission ofInquiry into the Deployment of Canadai. "This study examines how military culture, and particularly that of the Canadian Airborne Regiment, affected the behavior of Canadian soldiers in Somalia. It argues that the events which occurred in Somalia in 1993 can be traced to contradictions within the military establishment (due to the tension between the traditional, or combat, paradigm and the modern, or bureaucratic/occupational, paradigm); to theculture and organization of the Airborne combat unit; and to the situation al contingencies that arose from the external environment in Somalia. Material was gathered from visual records, personal and official documents and studies on other national forces in Somalia, and on Canadian peacekeeping operations elsewhere. The interpretations and analysis in this study are based on more than 50 in-depth interviews and focus groups held with military personnel who were deployed to Somalia." (from the back cover).

60313 WINSOR, Mary P. Yale Studies in the History of Science and Medicine 10 Starfish, Jellyfish, and the Order of Life. First Edition in dustjacket, signed
Yale University Press, New Haven and London, 1976, ISBN:0300016352 1976 0300016352 
WINSOR, Mary P. Starfish, Jellyfish, and the Order of Life : Issues in Nineteenth-Century Science. New Haven and London : Yale University Press, 1976. First Edition. Pp (10),[1]-228,(2). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, tan cloth, black lettering to spine.

Yale Studies in the History of Science and Medicine No.10.

Mary Pickard Winsor (b. 1943, Massachusetts) historian of Biology, was teaching at the University of Toronto at the time of publication.

"In this probing contribution to the history of ideas, Mary P. Winsor seeks to understand some of the intricate developments of nineteenth-century invertebrate taxonomy. In contrast to Charles Darwin and his followers, who believed that scientific classification was based on evolution, she presents a group of zoologists who based their theories on an orderly, unchanging world. Arguing that there was a widespread expectation that a truly natural classification would exhibit pattern and design, the author discusses the theories such influential scientists as Louis Agassiz, Rudolf Leuckart, and T. H. Huxley.

Protessor Winsor sees the history of biology as a dialogue between scientist and organism. In her volume, which is amply illustrated and includes a comprehensive glossary, we meet a variety of unfamiliar marine animals: jellyfish, sea urchins, coral animals, and starfish. The lively text shows how the study of taxonomy of the radiates was closely linked to the broadest issues of science of the day and was often at the very frontier of critical research." (from the dj).

Contents :
1. Cuvier's Creation of the Embranchement Radiata.
2. Ehrenberg's Opposition to the Simplicity of the Radiata.
3. The Discovery of Alternation of Generations in Acakphs and Polvos.
4. Thomas Henry Huxley's Ideas about the Relationships between Polyps and AcaJephs.

7. The Letters of Alexander Agassiz and Fritz Müller on the Radiata and Evolution.
8. Darwin and the Shape of Classification.

With glossary, blbiliography and index.

Short penned note to one page, else very good in edgeworn dustjacket. Signed with inscription by the author : "To one of the few mortals who apreciates the "importance of unimportant animals" [signed] M.P. Winsor." 55.00

Index. 8vo, illustrated blue card covers. “After 11 years at sea, Tony Winstanley saw little reason for staying in the British Merchant Navy. He had reached a dead end. Difficulty with passing exams, and the prospect of long absences from home cast a gloomy future. Theanswer was to emigrate to Canada, to make a new life for himself and his f amily. This meant finding a good job ashore. This second volume of memoirs is about his futile attempts to achieve this. He toiled in a fish plant, took a soul-destroying job as a salesman, even worked in an ice cream factorywhere he was fired for dropping the flavour of the month onto the conveyor belt. Finally he realized that the only way to support a growing family wa s to pursue his destiny to remain at sea. During the nine years covered by this book he sailed in cargo and passenger ships both deep sea and coastal,and did a stint inland aboard a tug on Lake Okanagan. "I had a tendency to quit jobs if I did not like them. This was hard on my wife, but we always managed to pay the bills." - from the back cover.

Leo Cooper Ltd, London, 1970, ISBN:0850520037 
WINSTOCK, Lewis. Songs & Music of the Redcoats : A History of the War Musicof the British Army, 1642-1902. London : Leo Cooper, (1970). First Edition . Pp. (10),i-viii,9-[1]-298. Over 50 piano arrangements in the text. 8vo, orange-brick cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "On the march. in the camp, even on the battlefield, soldiers have always armed themselves against the horrors of war by singing or making music. But although much has been written about the songs of more recent conflicts this is the first book to deal with the music of earlier times between 1642 and 1902 - namely the era of the redcoat. Lewis Winstock [b.1930, London] in this pioneer work investigates the real music of war. His book contains a long narrative, a superb collection of soldiers' songs - ribald, rousing, sentimental, satirical, over fifty of which are arranged for the piano. The use of instrumental music is also covered. Did the bands really play in battle to drown the screams of the wounded? What really happened when the British army surrendered to the Americans at Yorktown to the sound of the fife and drum? There are some bizarrestories here: mutinous Sepoys, playing 'Do You Remember Sweet Alice?'; Zul us roused to frenzy by the National Anthem, but delighted by 'St. Patrick'sDay'; Wolfe's staid grenadiers, disciplined by tradition, and fear of the lash, runnink amok when they heard their favourite march. Old favourites are also re-appraised. Was 'Lilliburlero' really as popular as tradition would have us believe, and what was the realtionship between 'The Grenadiers March' and 'The British Grenadiers'? To find materail for his book, the author has combed the memoirs of the soldiers of Cromwell, Wolfe, Marlborough, Roberts and Buller, to name but a few. The result is a book of value to the historian and musician, and one which should delight the general reader." from dj flap. Contents : Introduction: War Music: The Poor Relation of a Rich Military Heritage; 1. The Civil Wars, 1642-1655; 2. Lilliburlero and the War of the Spanish Succession, 1688-1713; 3.

"Thousands of ex-servicemen of the Second World War remember it as the port where their battered ships refitted and they themselves spent a hectic leave. To millions it means the defence agreement made in 1955 between the British and South African governments, the effects of which are still being hotly debated. To Colin Winter it means the multiracial community of Cape Coloureds, Africans, and Europeans, now broken up by "separate development", among which he lived and worked until 1964. This book emerges from his acute observation of the people of Simonstown and his deep affection for them. His unpretentious andhumorous stories capture the everyday human realities of living in South A frica." (from the back cover).

"In 2010, bestselling author Kathleen Winter tooka journey across the storied Northwest Passage, among marine scientists, h istorians, archaeologists, anthropologists, and curious passengers. From Greenland to Baffin Island and all along the passage, Winter bears witness tothe new math of the North -- where polar bears mate with grizzlies, creati ng a new hybrid species; where the earth is on the cusp of yielding so muchburied treasure that five nations stand poised to claim sovereignty of the land; and where the local Inuit population struggles to navigate the tensi on between taking part in the new global economy and defending their traditional way of life. Throughout the journey she also learns from fellow passengers Aaju Peter and Bernadette Dean, who teach her about Inuit society, past and present. She bonds with Nathan Rogers, son of the late Canadian iconStan Rogers, who died in a plane crash when Nathan was a young boy. Nathan 's quest is to take the route his fatehr never travelled, except in his beloved song 'The Northwest Passage,' which he performs both as anthem and lament at sea. And she guides us through her own personal odyssey, emigrating from England to Canada as a child and discovering both what was lost and what was gained as a result of that journey." - from the dustjacket.

Michael Winter was born in England and grew up in Newfoundland. "The commodity a fiction writer sells in his own life, his spirit. This is especially true in fiction that draws on autobiography. In Michael Winter's journal-de-clef, 'This All Happened', we are exposed tothe kernel of truth that exists in each day. Told from the viewpoint of Ga briel English (the protagonist of Winter's acclaimed story collection 'One Last Good Look'), 'This All Happened' opens windows onto a richly textured,fast-pacedly filmic compilation of daily vignettes over one calendar year (if Fellini were a Newfoundlander...). Gabriel's promises and actions earlyin the year have their repercussions by the end. While detailing the chaot ic lives of his friends, Gabriel also evokes a mysterious urban landscape that ultimately exposes the emotional core of the city of St John's. Gabriel's passion for Lydia Murphy leads him into paroxysms of jealousy -- but he never abandons his shrewdly witty perspective on the vagaries of modern love. Concrete and delicately rendered, 'This All Happened' depicts a man's descent from love to fury." - from the dustjacket. Vg-fine in dj. 18.00

WINTER, Michael. The Death of Donna Whalen. (Toronto) : Hamish Hamilton Canada, (2010). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-ix,(3),[3]-272,(6). 8vo, dark grey cloth with yellow lettering to spine. "When Donna Whalen is stabbed thirty-one times in her home on Empire Avenue in St. John's, her friends, family, and neighbours believe the culprit to be her abusive boyfriend, Sheldon Troke. But the evidence is circumstantial, the testimonies tainted by personal bias and attempts at deception. Police and prosecutors face a daunting challenge, and the course of justice, with all its intricacies and failings, takes many unpredictable turns before the truth is finally revealed. In this extraordinary novel, Michael Winter has mined the records of Sheldon's trial -- thousands of pages of court transcripts, police wiretaps, newspaper reports, private letters and diary entries -- and distilled their raw, naked truth into a mesmerizing work of documentary fiction that captures the myriad voices of the people involved. The result is a searing account of the tragedy that befell Donna Whalen and the controversial aftermath taht tore her town apart." - from the dust jacket. Very good in unclipped dust jacket. 18.00

"Henry Hayward has been living life the way he's wanted -- working hard, playinghard -- but when his girlfriend tells him she's leaving, it destroys him. In a quest to recover, he joins an army-affiliated contracting crew that takes him overseas to a Canadian base in Afghanistan. In the company of friends, he begins to mend: having laughs and being rebellious, blithely unawareof all he's left behind. But everything changes during a roadside incursio n when a routine patrol turns fatal. And Henry, who survives, knows in his heart that he is responsible. Upon returning home, tormented by guilt, he resolves to take care of the people and places around him: Martha Goves, whose boyfriend was killed in Afghanistan; his friends and neighbours; and a summer house that needs revitalizing. Henry tries his best to seek roots after a rootless life, collecting around himself a new 'community of a hundredpeople' for whom he cares deeply and is responsible. But he hasn't factore d in family history and social infidelity -- and Martha has a revelation ofher own that may change everything." - from the dustjacket.

Pp (12),13-511,(1),+ 48 pp plates. 8vo, white cloth spine, cream paper-covered boards, red lettering to spine, red autograph to front board. "The electrifying and outspoken memoirs of an earthy and unusually intelligent actress. In a book as gutsy and spunky as the lady herself, Shelley Winters tells of the street-smart kid from Brooklyn who crashed Hollywood as a harem-girl sexpot. The Blonde Bombshellfought to make it as a serious actress and walked off with two Oscars. Wit h exciting romances along the way - Lawrence Tierney, John Ireland, Errol Flynn, Burt Lancaster, Marlon Brando, William Holden - ending with her explosive and violent marriage to Italian actor Vittorio Gassman, she tells of her struggle for a successful career and a happy home life. Shelley sizzles,erupts, and crackles with rich humor; it reads like a novel, with continui ng characters like her roommate Marilyn Monroe, her Actors Studio buddy James Dean, her friend and sometimes romantic interest Farley Granger, mentorsMax Reinhardt, Lee Strasberg, and Charles Laughton, and her loyal sister B lanche. With an overall warm Jewish family feeling lerned from her Zayda and Bubba, she describes bosses like Harry Cohn and Howard Hughes (she liked them both, though Harry fired her as a failed sex object), respected coworkers like Ronald Colman, Montgomery Clift, and Robert Mitchum, and directorslike George Cukor, George Stevens, and Paul Mazursky. This is a courageous and honest book in which one of America's favorite personalities levels wi th the reader about the content and meaning of her life. (from the dj). Shelley Winters (born Shirley Schrift; August 18, 1920 – January 14, 2006) wasan American actress whose career spanned five decades. Very good in unclip ped dustjacket.

WINTON, John. The Victoria Cross at Sea. London : Michael Joseph, (1978). First Edition. Pp [1]-256,+ 16 pp plates. Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. John Pratt, pen name John Winton (b May 3, 1931 in London – d. April 27, 2001, London). “ What sort of man wins the Victoria Cross? In The Victoria Cross at Sea, a new biographical study of 124 winners from theRoyal and Dominion Navies, the Fleet Air Arm, Royal Marines and Coastal Co mmand, John Winton shows that the answer is : almost anybody. The only common factors the winners shared were extreme gallantry and. devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy. Naval VCs have been won in places as far apart in time and distance as the Baltic in 1854 and Japan in 1945, in trenchesfrom the Crimea to the Western Front, in harbours from Dar es Salaam to Ze ebrugge, from the Barents to the Java Sea, from New Zealand to the North Atlantic, and from China to the Channel. They have been won in battleships and trawlers, in submarines and in aircraft, on horseback and in hand-to-handfighting. Age and rank meant nothing. Boy Cornwell was not seventeen at Ju tland, and Frederick Parslow was in his sixtieth year when he won his VC inAnglo-Californian. Commander Unwin won his Cross at Gallipoli but VCs were won alongside him by two of his midshipmen and two Able Seamen. By no mean s were all the winners British: Ingouville came from the Channel Islands; William Hall was a Canadian, a coloured man who was the son of a freed slave; William Seeley was an American citizen, from New England; while William Johnstone, the first man on the lower deck to win a VC, was not a seaman buta stoker, and was most probably Swedish or German. In later life, the VC w inners had as varied fortunes as the backgrounds they came from. Some became Admirals of the Fleet, others were court-martialled and dismissed the Service. Some died of old age in their homes, others committed suicide in despair and grief. From action despatches, citations, memoirs, printed books, newspaper cuttings, ships' muster rolls, private correspondence, family photographs and birth, death and marriage certificates, from memorials and tombstones in country churchyards, John Winton has produced the first attempt to get behind the Cross and take a look at the man - his family, his Servicecareer, his subsequent life, and his home and background.” - from the dj.

Seahorse, the Navy's latest submarine arrives at a shipyard in the fine old mercantile city of Oozemouth fora long refit. Dagwood is determined not to take a wife, but the ladies of Oozemouth have otner ideas; and they are not alone. Moving behind the personalities, the tensions, (and the strikes) of the great shipyard of Harvey, McNichol & Drummond, controlling events with a fine Greek hand, is the genial but Machiavellian figure of the Admiralty Liason Officer in Oozemouth, Commander Robert Bollinger Badger, D.S.C, R.N., otherwise known as The Artful Bodger. Once The Artful Bodger begins to take an interest in his affairs,Dagwood is damned — to matrimony. John Winton won joyous recognition with his first novel, We Joined The Navy, and a puoiic which has grown with eachsubsequent book. All The Nice Girls will delight all old friends and intro duce thousands more to this most witty of contemporary novelists." (from the dj).

60371 WINTON, John Ultra at Sea : How Breaking the Nazi Code Affected Allied Naval Strategy During World War II. First Edition in dustjacket
Leo Cooper, London, 1988, ISBN:0850528836 
WINTON, John. Ultra at Sea. London : Leo Cooper, (1988). First Printing. Pp. (8),1-218, + 8 p. of plates. Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. John Pratt, pen name John Winton (b May 3, 1931 in London – d. April 27, 2001, London). "This, remarkably, is the first book to study in depth the use of ULTRA at sea. Other books, such as Ronald Lewin's The Ultra Secret, have touched on some of the main topics discussed here, but no one has hitherto undertaken a detailed examination of the practical application of ULTRA intelligence at sea. It is, as the author says, like focusinga bright light on to something that had hitherto been seen pnly in outline . Suddenly events that had formerly been dimly comprehended became startlingly obvious. One excellent example is the attack on the German battleship Tirpitz in April, 1944. She had been badly damaged by midget submarines in September, 1943, had been repaired and made ready for sea and was just due to sail fromher Norwegian fjord when Corsairs and Barracudas appeared overhead and many months of hard work were undone in a few minutes. At the time it looked like a very lucky coincidenc. Now we know that ULTRA had provided the information. So high does John Winton rate the effect of ULTRA on the war at sea that he even suggests that there might be a case for rewriting Roskill's Official History in the light of what we now know. Apart from analysing the effect of ULTRA on the Royal Navy's role in the Second World War, John Winton also examines the difficult problemof how much of the information provided by ULTRA could safely be used. Use it too often and the enemy smell a rat, alter the system and then there will be no more information. His conclusion is not entirely favourable to the British whose carelesssness,he thinks, was only outmatched by the stupidity ad arrogance of the German s. This fascinating book will certainly cause many people to reassess theirviews on much that went on at sea during the Second World War." (from the dj). Contents: 1. Early Pre-ULTRA Days; 2.

Financial timidity and political uncertainty subsequently decreed that the 20,000 Canadians who trained for, or fought in, history's first air war would have no air force of their own but would fly in the British flying services. "The sections which follow show that Canadians excelled in every aspect of the air war. Indeed, although the First World War never saw an exclusively Canadian squadron in action and no Canadian rose to a command above Grouplevel, Professor Wise has been able to write a full account of the war in the air from the Canadian perspective. Recruitment and training, the maritime air war, the strategic bombing of Germany and the defence of Great Britain, as well as action on the Western Front, in Italy, and in Macedonia, areall covered in depth. Each section reveals the complexity of air operation s, as tactics, strategy, and aircraft evolved with astonishing speed. The exploits of remarkable fighter aces such as Billy Bishop, Raymond Collishaw,D.R. MacLaren and W.G. Barker, and of bomber leaders like R.H. Mulock, are set in the context of the air war and the many thousands of Canadians who served with them. "In his conclusion Wise traces the development of Canadian government air policy to the year 1920, during which time the first Canadian air force was born and quickly died. In analysing this major step in Canada's entry into the air age he lays the foundation for postwar civil expansion and the formation of the RCAF.

Recruitment and training, the maritime air war, the strategic bombing of Germany and the defence of Great Britain, as well as action on the Western Front, in Italy, and in Macedonia, are all covered in depth. Each section reveals the complexity of air operations, as tactics, strategy, and aircraft evolved with astonishing speed. The exploits of remarkable fighter aces such as Billy Bishop, Raymond Collishaw, D.R. MacLaren and W.G. Barker, and of bomber leaders like R.H. Mulock, are set in the context of the air war and the many thousands of Canadians who served with them.

"In his conclusion Wise traces the development of Canadian government air policy to the year 1920, during which time the first Canadian air force was born and quickly died. In analysing this major step in Canada's entry into the air age he lays the foundation for postwar civil expansion and the formation of the RCAF. Illustrated with specially prepared colour and sketch maps and over 200 photographs, many of them published here for the first time [...]." - from the dj.

WISEMAN, Adele. Crackpot. A novel. (Toronto): McClelland and Stewart Limited, (1974). First Printing. Pp. (6),7-300,(4). 8vo, maroon cloth with silverlettering to spine. Spadoni & Donnelly 2609. "Crackpot is Hoda and Hoda is the earthiest, most captivating character ever to walk out of a Canadian n ovel. Froma tumultuous childhood to her life as a prostitute, she grows to become a legend in her neighbourhood, a canny yet ingenuous woman, generous, intuitive, even psychic, exuding wholesome lust and an irrepressible enthusiasm for life. Often buffeted by forces beyond her control, Hoda nevertheless asserts her human right to make crucial choices. She makes her life ofmingled pain, injustice and joy, a celebration of the flawed and damaged, but gloriously holy world to which she belongs. Adele Wiseman accomplishes the feat of bringing Hoda to life in the only type of novel that could contain her -- a novel with humour as hearty as Hoda's laugh, a richly texturednovel, resonant with myth, superstition and reality, echoing and re-echoin g over the years, lit by the same divine spark that Hoda yearns so earnestly to share with the world." - from the dustjacket.

"From the famine-ravaged fields of Ireland to the peaceful fishing village of Fortune Harbour, Newfoundland, Harbour of my Tomorrows takes the reader on an unforgettable journey of adventure, suspense, and love. John Gavin’s tale begins in County Cork, Ireland, in 1852. Orphaned at a young age, John and his brother, Luke, find solace in each other and the friends they meet in their travels, but shadows of tragedy, betrayal, and murder dog their every step. And when one brother is conscripted by the Royal Navy and sent to fight in the Crimean War, both John and Luke will face their greatest challenge yet: separation, and the uncertainty of whether brotherly love can stand the test of time." - from the back cover. Valerie Wiseman resides in Fortune Harbour, Newfoundland. Very good.12.00
