"The late Archbishop Breynat, who died while this English edition of his book was being prepared, had a unique and world-wide reputation while he lived. For fifty years a missionary - forty of them a bishop- in the Canadian Far North, he was the first to appreciate the value of air travel in administering a "diocese" of hundreds of thousands of square miles. Here "The Flying Bishop" - the title withwhich he was saluted by the journalistic world - tells the story of his lo ng and eventful life, from his first vocation to the mission-field [... told] with delightful modesty and not a little sly humour. Here we have first-hand descriptions of the way to evangelise the Indians, of the founding of new missions in the most inaccessible places, of the crudities and odditiesof the Eskimo way of life on the shore of the Arctic Ocean. The author was also in a position to give the authentic facts concerning the tragic fate of Fr. Rouvière and Fr. Le Roux, and the notorious trial of their murderersin 1917. He tells us, too, of his audiences with the great, with Sir Wilfr id Laurier and no fewer than four Popes, of the surprising knowledgeableness of Pius XI in the matter of diesel engines, and of the encouragement he received from both him and Pius XII. Apart from its value as a missionary record, this book has great general interest as illustrating the vast changesthat have come over the Canadian North-West [...]." - from the dust-jacket . "Popular account of the writer's (an Oblate) experiences at the Fond-du-Lac on Lake Athabaska 1892-1902; his duties and travels (since 1929 by aircraft) as bishop in Yukon Territory and Mackenzie District. Development of Catholic missions is recounted, natives, in particular Indians of the Mackenzie and Eskimos of the Coppermine region, are characterized." - AB.

6157 BRICHARD, Pierre. Pierre Brichard's Book of Cichlids and All the Other Fishes of Lake Tanganyika.
T.F.H. Publications, Inc., Neptune City, NJ, 1989, ISBN:0866226672 
BRICHARD, Pierre. Pierre Brichard's Book of Cichlids and All the Other Fishes of Lake Tanganyika. (Neptune City, NJ : T.F.H. Publications, Inc., 1989). First Thus Printing. Pp. (8),[9]-544. Illustrated in full colour. Triple column. Folio, photo-illustrated orange glossy paper-covered boards, black lettering to front board and spine. Spine reads "Cichlids of Lake Tanganyika". "As these words are being written, Pierre Brichard is in Bujumbura, Burundi. Not only is he still collecting rare fishes from this huge lake, but he has a very large laboratory for breeding the fishes found in Lake Tanganyika. Dr. Herbert R. Axelrod who fished and visited with Brichard many times, says: 'Brichard's fish farm and laboratory are exemplary. Brichard knowsthat there is always a problem with capturing too many of a species, so he breeds the more rare forms. No one in the whole world, neither fish collec tor nor scientist, knows more about the fishes of Lake Tanganyika than Pierre Brichard. As I edited this book, I learned more about African cichlids than from all the other books on the subject combined. Mr. Brichard considers this book an update of his first book 'Fishes of Lake Tanganyika'. It is far more than that. It is the definitive work on the fishes in Lake Tanganyika with information about how they live and breed in the Lake; how they live and breed in an aquarium; how to keep them healthy; how to identify them; and many, many more subjects that will enlighten the most sophisticated hobbyist as well as entertain those readers just interested in fishes. With more than 1,000 color illustrations, Brichard's book is destined to be an historical event. It took more than 10 years for the writing, editing and assembling of the illustrations. During this time Brichard suffered two heartattacks, but that didn't stop him from finishing this, his life's work." - from the rear cover. Contents: 1. Lake Tanganyika: Geography, History, Cli mate, Properties of the Water; 2. Life in the Lake Other Than Fishes; 3. Ecology and Distribution of Fishes; 4.

This century's most significant invertebrate fossil discovery, the Burgess Shale provides an unprecedented window into the explosive evolution during the Cambrian period that began about 540 million years ago, oneof the most enigmatic episodes in the history of life. This book provides the first comprehensive set of illustrations of the extraordinary life forms revealed in the Burgess Shale. In addition to the more common fossilized hard skeletons, the Burgess Shale preserved the soft parts of these organisms, which provide a key to understanding the early evolution of the major groups of animals that inhabit the earth today. The Fossils of the Burgess Shale shows much remarkable detail - including digestive tracts and other internal organs - of creatures preserved in particles of mud fine enough to penetrate every crack and unevenness. The book begins with the history of exploration and research in the Burgess Shale, the geologic setting and preservation of the fossils, and a discussion of the Cambrian radiation, the period when almost all the major phyla of animals evolved. These introductory chapters are followed by 199 high-quality photographs and line drawings with detailed species accounts that describe important features of each specimen, as well as the ecology and taxonomy of each group. A complete list of all currently accepted species described fromthe Burgess Shale and a comprehensive bibliography follow the illustrations. The Fossil of the Burgess Shale is a compendium of fascinating Cambrian treasures that offer a rare glimpse into the nature of early life on our planet. They have figured prominently in recent evolutionary debates." (from the dj). Very good in dustjacket. 50.00

By providing profiles of some 600 North American Classicists, this reference book presents a starting point for defining the history of Classical scholarship in Canada and the United States. Included are those Classicists who made significant contributions to the field and those who are representative figures. The people profiled were either born in the United States or Canada, or were born in other countries but had careers in North America. They were either founding fathers of the profession, scholars known more for their specialized contributions, or members of smaller or remote institutions who achieved at least regional distinction for their work. The first part of each entry provides basic biographical and professional information. A narrative summary of the person's career follows, and each profile closes with a short bibliography. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order and were written by expert contributor." Preface "Classical Scholarship in America: An Introductory Essay" by William M.
