3 ARTHUR, Eric and Thomas RITCHIE Iron : Cast and Wrought Iron in Canada from the Seventeenth Century to the Present. First Edition in dustjacket
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1982, ISBN:0802024297 
ARTHUR, Eric and Thomas RITCHIE. Iron : Cast and Wrought Iron in Canada from the Seventeenth Century to the Present. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (1982). First Edition. Pp (6),[vii]- xiv,[1]-242. Double column. Illustrated. 4to, dark grey cloth, black lettering to front and spine. "This volume is a tribute to the ironmasters - men of persistence, determination, and inventiveness, who have been little recorded or recognized; to the craftsmen whose high standards of design and fabrication allowed beauty to touchwhat could have been mundane - kettles, pots, sugar tongs, and above all, the stoves for which Canada is famous; and finally, to the worker in wrought iron whose creations reached a pinnacle in the magnificent fence enclosing the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. With 250 black and white illustrations of everything from steamships to stoves, trains to trivets, and spits to spittoons, this book provides an introduction to iron: its preparation, forming, application, and decorative properties and uses. The focus is primarily Canadian. As Eric Arthur explains: 'To some degree, to study iron in Canada is to follow the gradual sophistication of Canadian culture. Ironworking began in Canada, as elsewhere, to a large extent to produce implements ofthe utmost utility, yet even in these the creative abilities of the ironwo rker are visible. As Canadian society developed, ironworking gradually began to fulfil more sophisticated desires. Finally, the age of industrialization was based on the ability of the iron- worker to produce rails and locomotives, ships and machines - in short all the things that made the growth ofCanada possible.' " - from the dj. Contents: 1. The technology of iron; 2. The development of the Canadian iron and steel industry; 3. The hammer and the anvil: wrought iron (and The Lozeau crosses); 4. The engineer and the ironmaster: cast and rolled iron; 5. Fences, railings, and palings, iron grilles and gratings, hinges and hardware, handrails and stairs, doors, gates, portals and other grand entrances (with photo essay of Frederick Flatman and The Parliament Buildings in Ottawa); 6. Pots and pans, trivets and tongs, cauldrons and kettles, spits and spittoons, irons and andirons, and muchelse; 7. Initiative, inventiveness, and daring in nineteenth-century archi tecture cast in iron (with a photo essay on the Hamilton Pump-House); 8. Stoves for all seasons: for heating and cooking -- ornate for the opulent, modest for the majority -- firebacks and fireplaces, mantels and other iron accoutrements; 9. Iron ships and iron horses: the pioneer developers. With notes, bibliography and index. Very good in dustjacket. 50.00

5 BECK, Keith M West Midland Lines of the GWR. First Edition in dustjacket
Ian Allan Ltd, London, 1983, ISBN:0711012113 
BECK, Keith M. The West Midland Lines of the GWR. London : Ian Allan Ltd, (91983). First Edition. Pp (6),7-[112]/ Illustrated. Map. Double Column. Large 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Alone among the Great Western Railway's Service Time Tables, No 15 not only listed the principal stations — in this case Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton — but also bore the title "West Midland Section'. Both descriptions harkened back to the original companies of the area, the West Midland Railway and one of its constituent elements, the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton. The West Midland Section has no great claim to fame, though it did link three cathedral cities (afact which British Railways belatedly recognised some years after the demi se or the GWR). Its train services were neither prolific nor generally veryfast; while many of its less-important lines were a last refuge for aged e ngines and cararaiages. But like most branch lines, those of the West Midlands and the Welch Marches were a fascinating repository of local tradition and life and, 80 years it had been absorbed into the GWR and after that mighty giant had itself been swalowed up into British Railways, the old West Midland still survived — albeit only as a section of the Western Region. In West Midland Lines of the GWR Keith Beck covers both this history and the workings of the West Midland in a detail that will fascinate and inform the reader." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction. 1. The 'Old Worse and Worse' — the Oxford, Worcester & Wolverhampton Railway. 2. 'Rails to Hereford'.3. The West Midland Railway and the West Midland Section. 4.

Sir Misha Black, OBE, KBE (b. 16 October 1910, Baku, Azerbaijan -d. 11 October 1977, London) . "The influence of the subject of this book, Professor Sir Misha Black, can be said to illuminate the course of modern industrial design, both in Britain and elsewhere. Born in Russia and broughtto Britain as a baby, his career began in the 1930s, which were a period o f rapid change in established ideas about design and society. And Misha Black was soon deeply involved in the great debate. Although his early experience was in poster and exhibition design, as a founder member of the influential Design Research Unit, his scope developed to include projects ranging from eggcups to heavy locomotives. After the War, he was appointed to the co-ordinating committee of the Festival of Britain and was responsible for the widely respected Regatta Restaurant. In later years Misha Black broadened his scope still further and became increasingly involved with teaching and with talking about industrial design. " - rear cover.

"The story of a distinguished career in railway engineering from 1920 to 1968. Roland Bond, one of the last Chief Mechanical Engineerss to practise in steam, lived and workedwith locomotives through the period of their greatest development and was at the very centre of British Railways' changeover from steam to diesel andelectric motive power. He presents the technical side in an eminently read able form and at the same time draws on a wealth of personal experience to illustrate his story, to comment in a forthright but kindly manner on some of the many characters with whom he came into contact, and to question someof the decisions which determined the course of events within the national ised undertaking the is British Railways today. It is clear that such a manmust have an interesting story to tell, but all too few of similar backgro und are willing or able to put pen to paper and share their thoughts and experiences, their successes and their failures, with a wider public."
