(6),vii-xiii,(1),[1]-337,(1), frontispiece. Map endpapers. 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettered black title block to spine. "To most Canadians, 'the North-West Company' is almost synonymous with the names of its famous trader-exploers, who, surmoundting incredible hardships, penetrated the remotest corners of North American in the search for beaver skins. [...] But some of them were also intrepid lovers of adventure, possessed by the romantic desire to explore the unknown that was always beckoning them on, down the rivers of the wild Northwest. Such were Simon Fraser, AlexanderMackenzie, Alexander Henry, Daniel Williams Harmon and David Thompson. Suc h was William McGillivray. [...] He came to Canada as a youth of twenty to become the first English clerk in the fur-trading company of his uncle, Simon McTavish, and rapidly rose through the ranks of bourgeois, agent and General Superintendent to become Chief Director of a powerful and flourishing business, the first joint-stock company in America. [...] But his was not an easy life; there were endless canoe trips and gruelling portages, long winters spent trudging on snowshoes from Indian village to village, fierce rivalry with the chartered Hudson's Bay Company, an unremitting succession ofdomestic tragedies, and the worst and final blow, the establishment of Lor d Selkirk's Red River settlement right across the canoe routes to the Northwest, which put an end to the North West Company." - from the dustjacket.

Robert Campbell provides this introductory guide to help readers experience the Qur’an on its own terms. Following his guidance, in conjunction with reading an English language version of the Qur’an, can reveal a great deal about the nature of Islam and about how the Qur’an compares with other Abrahamic scriptures." - from the back cover.

"Robert Campbell examines the inadequacies of current theories on leadership in order to help us better understand the process ofleadership and to suggest mechanisms for change. The proliferation of exam ples of poor political, religious, corporate and even grass roots leadership is troubling, to say the least. Perhaps more troubling is the resulting cynicism -- and apathy -- on the part of poulations who sorely desire, and deserve, better leadership and governance. There are many and varied sourcesof theories and practical advice on leadership but, as Campbell suggests, too many simply play into our need for quick fixes and novelty and do not reflect what is actually going on in the world. In 'Governance and Social Leadership', Campbell examines the dynamic nature of organizations and humanssystems and our capacity, or incapacity, to act." - from rear. Very good. 15.00

Illustrated with numerous b&w photos. Diagrams, tables, maps in text. 8vo, illustrated cardcovers. Lucille H. Campey (b. August 24, 1941 Ottawa). A history of the arrival of Scottish immigrants to Prince Edward Island in its early stages of settlement. "Previous studies of early Scottish emigration to the New World have tendedto concentrate on the miseries of evictions and the destruction of old com munities. In this groundbreaking study of the influx of Scots to Prince Edward Island, the widely held assumption that emigration was solely a flight from poverty is challenged. By uncovering previously unreported ship crossings, as well as a wide range of manuscripts and under-used sources such as customs records and newspaper shipping reports, the book provides the most comprehensive account to date of the influx of Scots to the Island. 'A FineClass of Immigrants' is essential reading for individuals wishing to trace family links or deepen their understanding of how and why the Island came to acquire its distinctive Scottish communities. And by accessing, for the first time, shipping sources like 'Lloyd's List' and 'Lloyd's Shipping Register ', the author brings a new dimension to our understanding of emigrant travel. Campey demonstrates that far from sailing on disease-ridden leaky tubs, as popularly imagined, the Island's Pioneer Scots usually crossed the Atlantic on the best available ships of the time." - from rear cover.

CAMPEY, Lucille H. "Fast Sailing and Copper-Bottomed" : Aberdeen Sailing Ships and the Emigrant Scots They Carried to Canada, 1774-1855. Toronto: Natural Heritage Books, (2002). Pp. 209. Illustrated. 8vo, grey card covers with purple spine. "The days when Aberdeen's 'fast sailing and copper-bottomed' ships carried emigrant Scots to Canada are brought to life in this fascinating account of the northern Scotland exodus during the sailing ship era. Taking readers through new and little-used documentary sources, Lucille H. Campey finds convincing evidence of good ships, sailed by experienced captains and managed by reputable people, thus challenging head on the perceivedimagery of abominable sea passages in leaking old tubs. And by considering the significance of ship design and size, she opens a new window on our un derstanding of emigrant travel. Instead of concentrating on the extreme cases of suffering and mishaps, to be found in anecdotal material, Campey's approach is to identify all of the emigrant sea crossings to Canada made on Aberdeen sailing ships. Observing the ships which collected passengers from the port of Aberdeen as well as those which collected emigrants at Highlandports, especially Cromarty and Thurso, Campey reveals the processes at wor k and the people who worked behind the scenes to provide the services. Her following of the emigrant Scots on to their New World destinations in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Upper Canada provides us with an opportunity to see how events in Canada were influencing both the decision to emigrate and choice of location. These emigrant Scots succeeded, often after difficult beginnings, and would endow Canada with their rich traditions and culture which live on to this day." - from the rear cover. New. 23.95

Lucille H. Campey (b. August 24, 1941 Ottawa).

"New Brunswick's enormous timber trade attracted the first wave of Scots in the late 18th century. As economic conditions in Scotland worsened, the flow of emigrants increased, creating distinctive Scottish communities along the province's major timber bays and river frontages. While Scots relied on the timber trade for economic sustenance, their religion offered another form of support, sustaining them in a spiritual and cultural sense. These two themes, the axe and the bible, underpin their story.

Using wide-ranging documentary sources, including passenger lists and newspaper shipping reports, With Axe and Bible traces the progress of Scottish colonization and its ramifications for the province's early development. Who were these Scots? What factors caused them to select their various locations? What problems did they face? Were they successful pioneers? Why was the Scottish Church so important to them? :hem? In tracing the their overall impact and the cultural legacy they left behind. This book is the first fully documented account of Scottish emigration to New Brunswick. " - from the rear cover.

CAMPEY, Lucille H. An Unstoppable Force : The Scottish Exodus to Canada. Toronto : Natural Heritage Books, A Member of The Dundurn Group, (2008). First Editon. Pp (8),[ix]-xiv,[1]-334,(4). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, illustrated card covers, lettered in maroon, black and white. Lucille H. Campey (b. August 24, 1941 Ottawa). " From the late 18th century a growing number of Scots sought the better life that Canada offered. They faced great privations and overcame many obstacles. As economic conditions in Scotland deteriorated, emigration surged ahead becoming an unstoppable force. In this major study of Scottish emigration, Lucille Campey traces the relocation of over 100,000 emigrants to their new homes in Canada. Mythology and truth are laid side by side as their progress unfolds. In considering the factors which drove the exodus, she shatters the widespread misconception that the desire to emigrate was primarily driven by dire events in Scotland. Campey proves conclusively that, however bad were the conditions in Scotland, Scots were also being attracted to Canada by its many benefits and opportunities. They chose the part of Canada that best suited them and normally paid theirown way in reaching their final destinations. And although Highlanders rec eived most of the attention, Lowlanders greatly outnumbered them. The shipping horror stories, that have come to be associated with emigrant sea crossings, are also challenged. Far from being offered the worst leaky tubs of their day, most Scots actually sailed on top quality ships in the highest state of repair and arrived in a good state of health. This book is essentialreading for anyone wishing to understand why Scots emigrated and the enorm ity of their colonizing achievements in Canada. They were a founding peoplewhose influence and impact set them apart from other ethnic groups." (from the back cover). Contents : 1. Canada's appeal. 2. Emigration frenzy. 3.

August 24, 1941 Ottawa). "This is the first fully documented account, produced in modern times, of the migration of Scots to Lower Canada. Scots were in the forefront of the early influx of British settlers, which began in the late eighteenth century. John Nairne and Malcolm Fraser were two of the first Highlanders to make their mark on the province, arriving at La Malbaie soon after 1763. By the early 1800s many Scottish settlements had been formed along the north side of the Ottawa River, in the Chateauguay Valley to the southwest of Montreal and in the Gaspe region. Then, as economic conditions in the Highlands and Islands deteriorated by thelate 1820s, large numbers of Hebridean crofters settled in the Eastern Tow nships. The first group came from Arran and the later arrivals came from Lewis. Les Écossais were proud of their Scottish traditions and customs whichwere living reminders of the old country which had been left behind. In th e end they became assimilated into Quebec's French-speaking society, but along the way they had a huge impact on the province's early development. Howwere les Écossais regarded by their French neighbours? Were they successfu l pioneers? Author Lucille H. Campey assesses their impact as she unravels their story. Drawing from a wide range of fascniating sources, she considers the process of settlement and the harsh realities of life in the New World. She explains how Quebec province came to acquire its distinctive Scottish communities and offers new insights on their experiences and achievements." -from the rear cover. Contents: 1.

Index. 8vo, white card covers, lettered in red and black. Oddly, not found inSpadoni & Donnelly. “What do the protest marchers mean when they chant “Ba n the Bomb”? Whom are they addressing? John Campsie doesn't think they are addressing any one at all. There is no individual or body on earth with either the authority to legislate or the power to enforce a ban on nuclear weapons. The spiralling nuclear arms race to disaster, he believes, will only be reversed if one of the major contestants, by a deliberate decision, ceases to accumulate nuclear weapons and gets rid of them instead. And if we really want this to happen, we must go ahead and do it ourselves. Here, in perhaps clearer and more forceful terms than ever before, is an account of what the intelligent universalist stands for and why. Other writers have put forward prudential arguments for unilateral nuclear disarmament. Campsie insists that the main issue is above all a moral one. The deliberate massacreof innocent men, women, and children by the tens of hundreds of millions, he believes, is something so evil that it simply must not be done.” - from the back cover. Lightly browned, else very good. Ex-libris - George Parkin Grant (without indication, but acquired from his estate). 15.00

"As a result of its survey and investigation, and the unanimity of the evidence and submissions received, your Committee has come definitely to these conclusions: - 1. That the Tourist Trade of Canada is capable of great expansion. 2. That this is a matter of national concern, in the interests of the Dominion as a whole. 3. That there is need for the establishment, at as early a date as possible, of a central organization at Ottawa to co-ordinate the activities of the multitude of tourist agencies, public and private, throughout the Provinces, as well as the work of those Federal departments and services interested in the promotion of tourist travel within and to Canada." pp.viii-ix.
