CARSTEN, F. L. Revolution in Central Europe 1918-1919. London : Temple Smith, (1972). First Edition. Pp (8),[9]-360,+ 8 pp plates. Index. 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This is the first book to make a comparative study of the revolutionary movements that broke ou tin the Central Europeancountries at the end of the First World War. There have been monographs an d biographies and books on the German revolution, but no survey covering the whole field. d Revolution in Central Europe is based on on studies carried on over many years in many different archives, from Amsterdam to Munich, from Vienna to Graz, Klagenfurt and Innsbruck. It shows no t only what happened in the capitals—Berlin, Munich, Viena, Bdapest - but also in the smal towns and villages of the area. Its central theme is the rise and the decline of the Workers' and Soldiers' Councils, which flourished for a few months and exercised considerable influence, but never developed into Soviets inthe Russian sense and soon lost their power. The book also describes the a ctivities of he nascent Communist Parties, the role of Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, the new armies and their politics, the beginnings of right-wing extremism, and the relations of of the Gemans with their neighbours. In doing so is makes use of a multitude of sources which have never been used before, especially of many of the documents and the correspondenaice leftby the Workers' and the Soldiers' Councils. At a time when these Councils have acquired a new political significance it discusse their development and the causes of their failure, a faikure that weakened the whole democraticmovement in Cantral Europe. It is thus not only a historical study of an i mportant movement: it is also of great political and social interest." (from the dj). Contents : introduction: Before the Revolution. 1. Revolution and New Governments. 2. Generals and Soldiers' Councils. 3. The Austrian Volkswehr. 4. The Austrian Workers' Councils. 5. The German Workers' and Soldiers' Councils: Berlin. 6.

Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated black card covers. "How many Canadians are aware that 3.512 nursing sisters - dieticians, physiotherapists and occupational therapists - served with the Canadian forces during World War Two? Or that they staffed military hospitals in Newfoundland, England, Sicily, and Italy? Soon after D-Day the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps Nursing Service reached its peak strength with 3.214 members, 2.152 of them overseas. Sixty thousand wounded Canadian soldiers, along with many from other allied nations - and even the enemy - were treated with tender loving care by these dedicated Canadian medical professionals. Nursing SAister Lieutenant Doris V. Carter served overseas with the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps from 1940 to 1945. Her duties took her to numerous military hospitals in England, and later to Algeria, Sicily, Italy and Belgium. She was sent to Rome after its fall where, amidst many other adventures, she met Pope Pius XII, discovered the reason a soldier's would wouldn't heal was because his watch strap was buried in it, and watched in horror as one citizen cut the living heart out of another suspected of being a Fascist. Here, in her own vivid words, is Lieutenant Carter's riveting story" -- fromback cover. Very good. 12.50

Herbert Dyson Carter was born in Saint John, February 2, 1910.He was living in Saint Boniface, Manitoba at the time of publication. "In the late 1930s Carter also began a scholarlywork of historical geography which urged the development of Hudson Bay as a mercantile seaport for the Canadian wheat-farming regions, and as a base of naval defense against a possible invasion of North America. Sea of Destiny (1940) was very pro-Russian, drawing a comparison between the USSR's development of its Arctic and Canada's neglect of its own northern territories. It was also anti-German, suggesting that Nazi submarines and battleships might well exploit the Bay as a major point of vulnerability in North American defenses. Reviewers were impressed by this knowledgeable introduction to a neglected feature of North American history and geography - although the isolationist New York Times reviewer dismissed Carter's "alarmist" prophecies that the European war might be carried into the Arctic." - James Doyle. 1.

Laugher, p. 93, Watters p.259."This book is one of a Special Advance Edition, of which only 320 copies h ave been printed." Herbert Dyson Carter, b. February 2, 1910, Saint John, NB. "'Fatherless Sons' was the first of his serious fictions to use an explicitly Canadian setting, and attempted to convey the political and personal experience of working-class Canadians in the early years of the Cold War. As the verbal echo in its title suggests, 'Fatherless Sons' may have been partly inspired by the Communist reaction against Hugh MacLennan's popular novel 'Each Man's Son' (1951). A reviewer in the Canadian Tribune complained that MacLennan ignored the poverty and strife-ridden labour conditions of industrial Cape Breton to concentrate on a sentimental and pseudopsychological scrutiny of the main character, 'Fatherless Sons', by contrast, portraysworking-class struggles for survival against capitalist exploitation and m ilitarism." - from James Doyle's article "Science, Literature and Revolution: The Life and Writings of Dyson Carter", pp. 19-20, from Left History, Vol. 5, No. 2. "You'll read in this book the story of a headstrong young miner, and the courageous woman whose love he never lost. This man's family, for genearations, has been shadowed by a terrible curse... the sons have never known their fathers. Came the day when Dave Nelson returned from war, to seek his love again, resolved to defy his family's fate. But life plunged him and his beloved into one of the strangest, most pathetic and tormenting situations that ever confronted two loves. 'Fatherless Sons' takes you farrbeyond one family and one town. It sweeps you across our magnificent count ry, into the lives of a host of Canadians, youthful and aged, the brave andthe defeated." - from the dustjacket.

"In Nova Scotia, the tradition of home-cooking runs deep -- family recipes are passed on like heirlooms, and meals are still planned around the growing cycles and fishing seasons of the province. Over the last decade orso, however, Nova Scotians have been turning to healthier, less time-consu ming methods of food preparation as well as taking advantage of fresher andmore exotic ingredients in local markets and grocery stores. But rather th an substitute the new for the old, our chefs have been incorporating moderncooking trends into the tradition that has made Nova Scotian cooking famou s. The result is a style of cooking even more unique, one that combines thebest of old and new to delicious effect. In this definitive cookbook, long -time cook and homemaker Pauline Carter has gathered more than a thousand recipes, some tradition, some trendy, and some simply the best, from the recipe archives of family and friends across Nova Scotia. From appetizers, salads, and main dishes to desserts, confections, and preserves, there's plenty to satisfy every culinary need -- a section just for kids has recipes even the youngest cook in your kitchen can try. If you love good food, you will appreciate the recipes, both time-honoured and new, that 'The Great Nova Scotia Cookbook' dishes up with delectable style and wholesome simplicity."- from the rear cover.

What better remedy than a cruise along the New England coast? That was the Professor's prescription, and to complete the passenger list they recruited the Artist and the thirstyAssyrian. With this unlikely foursome, you are invited to sail aboard the Helen for a voyage into the past. Lobsters are so cheap you can use them for bait.

(CARTIER, Jacques). The Voyages of Jacques Cartier . With an introduction by Ramsay Cook. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (2007). Fourth Paperback Printing. Pp (4),[v]-xli,(11),[1]-177,(3). Illustrated. Maps. 8vo, art-illustrated yellow card covers.

Includes accounts of all three of Cartier's voyages (1534, 1535-6, and 1541), as well as Roberval's voyage of 1542-3. Includes a lengthy appendix of documents relating to Cartier and de Roberval, with grants, crew lists (and some lists of their effects), a couple of letters, royal orders, &c.

"Jacques Cartier's voyages of 1534, 1535, and 1541constitute the first record of European impressions of the St Lawrence region of northeastern North American and its peoples. The Voyages are rich in details about almost every aspect of the region's environment and the people who inhabited it.

As Ramsay Cook points out in his introduction, Cartier was more than an explorer; he was also Canada's first ethnographer. His accounts provide a wealth of information about the native people of the region and their relations with each other. Indirectly, he also reveals much about himself and about sixteenth-century European attitudes and beliefs. These memoirs recount not only the French experience with the Iroquois, but alo the Iroquois' discovery of the French.

In addition to Cartier's Voyages, a slightly amended version of H.P. Biggar's 1924 text, the volume includes a series of letters relating to Cartier and the Sieur de Roberval, who was in command of Cartier on the last voyage. Many of these letters appear for the first time in English.

Ramsay Cook's introduction, 'Donnacona Discovers Europe,' rereads the documents in the light of recent scholarship as well as from contemporary perspectives in order to understand better the viewpoints of Cartier and the native people with whom he came into contact." - p.[i].

CARTIER-BRESSON, Henri. From One China to the Other. Photographs by Henri Cartier-Bresson. Text by Han Suyin. New York : Universe Books, (1956). Pp (156) unpaginated. Large 8vo [215 x 275 mm], tan buckram, lettered in white.

Illustrated with 144 photographs by Cartier-Bresson.

Henri Cartier-Bresson (b. August 22, 1908, Chanteloup-en-Brie, France – d. August 3, 2004, Céreste, France) was a French humanist photographer considered a master of candid photography, and an early user of 35 mm film. He pioneered the genre of street photography, and viewed photography as capturing a decisive moment. His work has influenced many photographers.

Han Suyin (b. September 12,1917, Xinyang, Henan, Republic of China – d. November 2, 2012, Lausanne, Switzerland) was the pen name of Elizabeth Comber, born Rosalie Matilda Kuanghu Chou. She was a China-born Eurasian, a physician, and author of books in English and French on modern China, novels set in East and Southeast Asia, and autobiographical memoirs which covered the span of modern China. These writings gained her a reputation as an ardent and articulate supporter of the Chinese Communist Revolution. She lived in Lausanne, Switzerland, for many years until her death.

"This book is the picture diary of one today's most brilliant roving photographers, Henri Cartier-Bresson, who lived in China from December 1948 to September 1949. In those eventful and often dangerous months he watched from close at hand the withdrawal of the Nationalist government and the inrush of the Communist armies He caught these events on the fly and came back from China with an unbiased graphic document of enduring historical interest. The press both in America and Europe saluted the appearance of these photographs : for those published in Life Magazine Cartier-Bresson was awarded first prize for the best photographic reporting job of the year by the Overseas Press Club."

This set has at beginning of Vol. I the Lane 1792 "Chart of Part of the Coast of Labrador" [the larger two-sheet version, 26 3/16" x 36 13/16" (66.5 x 93.5 cm.) overall] and the Lane 1790 "The Island of Newfoundland". One of 15 Large Paper Copies. O'Dea 245a, Cooke & Caron p.82, TPL 586, Davidson 139, Sabin 11150. "[...] it is clear from thelist of subscribers' names prefixed to volume one, that the size of the ed ition had been reduced from a thousand to 350 copies, [...]. Of the total number of copies printed, fifteen were run off as special large-paper copiesfavoured by bibliophiles, and these are now exceedingly rare and valuable items." - George Story's "Old Labrador: George Cartwright 1738-1819: A Lecture delivered to The Newfoundland Historical Society, Thursday, 9 October 1980". "This journal is written with care and fidelity; the style of the author is plain and manly; he delivers his sentiments with freedom, and with confidence, asserts only those circumstances which, from his own observations, he knows to be facts. [...] Coleridge highly recommended the work." - quoted in Maggs' Catalogue 678, in loc. "The annals of his campaigns among the foxes and beavers, interested me more than ever did the exploits of Marleborough [sic] or Frederick; besides I saw plain truth and the heart of Cartwright's book." - Coleridge, cited in Lande, (although it appears rather tohave been Robert Southey, according to G.M.Story, in his DCB article). It would be interesting to know how such a book came to be printed in Newark, a small borough town in Nottinghamshire. Despite Cartwright's connection with the town, one would have expected a London imprint for such a large project. John Feather's The English Provincial Book Trade before 1850, (Oxford,1981) has provided two possible sources: Thomas M. Blagg's Newark as a Pub lishing Town, (Newark, 1898) and John Walton's A Survey of the Printing Trade and Related Occupations in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire to 1900, (Library Association Fellowship thesis, 1968). So far the only notice we have found for the printer is the following: "1795, Jan. 4 Died, William Allen [sic], an eminent bookseller at Newark, in Nottinghamshire, aged sixty-two years" in C.H.Timperley's Encyclopaedia of Literary and Typographical Anecdote, (L., 1842), p.785. Vol. I: Lacks the original portrait frontispiece, as well as the map of "Northern and Middle States...and the British Dominions",but full-sized photocopies of these two on good paper have been obtained a nd laid-in. Both of the maps in Vol. I have a single four inch mended tear.Spine cracked at pp. 120/121, 3" tear to margin of pp. 7 - 8, 1" tear to m argin of pp. 21 - 22; pp. 121 - 128 and 205 - 217 are considerable foxed, extreme edges of last leaf showing some adherence of marbling from earlier binding, edges (especially where untrimmed) are darkened, otherwise very clean. Vol. II: Fore-edge of title page spotted (and extreme edges showing some adhering of marbling from earlier binding), two leaves loose (pp. 43 - 46), occasional light foxing (and small stained area affecting text of p. 173), edges (especially where untrimmed) are darkened, otherwise very clean throughout. Vol. III: Two leaves (pp. 3 - 6) loose, extreme top and fore-edgeof title page (and fore-edge of last leaf) show some adhering of marbling from earlier binding, some soiling to p. 169, some damp-staining to p. 222,edges (especially where untrimmed) are darkened, otherwise very clean thro ughout. Bindings: Heavy wear to bottom edges of boards, spines rubbed and worn at extremities, some loss of marbled paper where it overlaps the spine leather.

Index. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to spine, top edge dyed green. "This volume brings together essays published over a number of years on English trade and industry in the later Middle Ages.

The collection includes the first survey of the trade of Bristol to make analytical use of the Customs Returns, an account of the re-opening of the Iceland trade, an elucidation (made possible for the first timeby the author's discovery of their own medieval records) or the early hist ory of the Merchant Adventurers of London, two studies of the thirteenth-century English cloth industry revealing its capitalist organization and its utilization of water power, a critical note on the Aulnage accounts (prior to the publication of this Note accented as an unimpeachable authority), aninvestigation ot short and long term trends in the export of English wooll ens during the fourteenth century, and finally a brief essay on the wine trade. While all these essays make a contribution of some importance to the economic history of the Middle Ages, they contain much of interest also for the general reader and for the student of economic history in any period."

CARVER, Humphrey. Compassionate Landscape : Places and People in a Man's Life. Toronto and Buffalo : University of Toronto Press, (1975). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-viii,(2),[1]-251,(3). Illustrated in black and white. 8vo, brown cloth with black and gilt lettering to spine. Humphrey Carver, b. November 29, 1902, Birmingham; d. October 19, 1995, Ottawa. "From the top ofthe Clent Hills in England, on cane look out over the Black Country to the north and the Forest of Arden to the south. As a boy Humphrey Carver looke d at these two landscapes -- one synonymous with the harsh ugliness and dehumanization brought by industry, the other with idyllic harmony between manand land. At the start of the depression Carver came to Canada where, in m any and varied ways, he has tried to bring the qualities of humanity and compassion to the landscape shaped by man. His career has involved him in theinitiation of, and contact with, almost everything that has happened in th e last forty years in the fields of housing, planning, design, and urban and community action. This book is a histroy of the development of an awareness, of institutions, and of policies on the shaping of the man-made environment. It is however more than that. Mr Carver describes his own life and sensibilities, his family and his colleagues, with a trained and compassionate eye and a taut and careful prose. Rarely does one encounter an autobiography of such perceptive and satisfying craftsmanship. Those who know him will not be surprised; those who do not will be delighter to discover a work of such a warm and sympathetic humanity. Humphrey Carver has a message for us all." - from the dustjacket. Very good in nicked, sunned dustjacket. 20.00

CARY, Joyce. Art and Reality. Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 1958.Pp (8),1-[182],(2). 8vo, grey cloth, gilt letering to spine. The Clark Lec tures 1956. "Mr Cary's Clark Lectures are a remarkably sustained meditationby a distinguished writer on the nature ot art, the relationship with the outside world which it recreates in the mind, its function and its purpose.Mr Cary was a novelist; he was also at one time an art-student, and he wro te with an inner knowledge of two arts. But his whole conception oi art is hearteningly wide; any attempt to express an 'intuition' is of the nature of art. Hence there is no diminution of the status of art by making it a separate activity carried on by a few gifted people set aside from the business of living. It is not easy to summarize the argument, which develops steadily throughout the book. One can best indicate its range by saying that it starts from the basic mental activity involved in the relationship between the individual and the world about hm: the intuition ot the nature of 'the other', the relationship between intuition, symbol and the necessary but deadening concept. It touches on child art, education, tradition in art, originality, the artist's obsessing theme, the moral effect ot art, its action on the perceiver and its place m his life. All develops from the initial relationship between the self and the other, and the appreciation (itseif a form ot creation) and the production of works of art are both presented as dignifying occupations essentially concerned with living as ' a free moral agent in a world or dangerous vicissitudes'." - from front dj flap.
