Cover art: "The Composer" by Aré Gjesdal.

Lesley Willis Choyce (b. March 21, 1951, Riverside, New Jersey), novelist, poet, educator and publisher.

"Lesley Choyce, a well known Maritime Canadian author, was born in deep space many years ago. After several aborted transmigrations, he awoke to bright lights in a hospital bed in Riverside, New Jersey. He was influenced by other extra-terrestrials who had gathered in that state for the purpose of making money. While visiting Nova Scotia in 1977, a vision appeared to Choyce as he surfed a hollow wave at Lawrencetown Beach. Certain that he was receiving instructions from his progenitors in another galaxy, he followed the directive to move to Nova Scotia and give up worldly goods. Self-induced poverty created a comfortable time-warp that has allowed him and his family to exist outside of time and space and the usual political affiliations.

The Dream Auditor is a book of science fiction short stories that accurately describe alternate worlds not at all unlike the one we live in." - from rear cover.

The stories are:
"The Dream Auditor",

"The Day the Nurk Field Collapsed",

"Buddha at the Laundromat" [with "The Bedford Highway U-Wash", "Don Giovanni's Auto Repair in Sackville", a 1962 Corvair, &c],

"Privileged Information",

"Thanotopolis Revisited",

"The Loneliness of the Long Distance Writer",

"Beaverbrook in Love" [with mention of the Antarctic Conversion Farming Centre],

"Princess Thirty Moonbeams and the Hard Luck Bargaining Kit" [with a Halifax setting, a Cape Breton taxi driver and "It was a quiet day, almost-spring day in Halifax except for the fact that a truck from a greeting card company had overturned on the corner of Brunswick and Prince Streets and thousands of birthday cards were blowing around Halifax looking for people with birthdays.],

42 CHUBBS, Boyd CHUBBS Poems from the Burntwoods. First Edition, Signed
Creative Publishers, St. John's, 1995, ISBN:1895387507 
CHUBBS, Boyd. Poems from the Burntwoods, St. John's : Creative Publishers, 1995. Pp 69. 8vo, art- and photo-illustrated cardcovers. Boyd Warren Chubbswriter, artist, and excellent guitarist was born in L’Anse Au Clair, Labra dor on June 16, 1955. A land is ravaged by fire and seeks each season to repair itself. From it rise berry bushes, shrubs, but other, more tender, growth may not revitalize. This volume of poems comes from such a place, a landscape that is physical, psychic, mythic. In it are angels and ravens, messengers and witnesses, walkers of barrens, lovers and seekers, children and musicians. From the coast of Labrador to the streets of Dublin, these poemsexplore the connections between internal and external landscapes, and thos e moments in time when connections are as visible as shifts of light. Chubbs' landscapes are both familiar and magical, and through them runs a voice that connects the stories of their inhabitants - past,present and future." - from the rear cover.. Includes the poems : "Portrait, March 3, Goose Bay", "For Mary's Harbour and Other Places", "The Berrypickers", "A Coastal Parable", "Labrador Gothic", "This Night When Memory is Loose in the Harbour","There was a Love Stranger than Governments", "Sunday in North Belfast", " Drumcliffe Churchyard", "It was a Holy Day in Doolin" and many more.

46 COLBORNE, Joan Archibald COLBORNE, Blair, Rev.) COUSINS, John (intro.) Letters from the Manse
Island Studies Press, Charlottetown, PEI, 2003, ISBN:0919013392 
COLBORNE, Joan Archibald. Letters from the Manse. Introduction by John Cousins. Charlottetown, PEI: Island Studies Press, 2003. Pp. (1)-129,,[3]. Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated brown and pale card covers. A collection of the correspondences of the wife of a United Church minister in Prince Edward Island in the middle of the twentieth century over the span of sixteen months."On December 30, 1948, Joan Archibald Colborne married the Rev. Blair Colb orne in Ottawa. J oan was 26. Blair was 24. Originally from Nova Scotia, they were well-educated city dwellers with high ideals and expectations. In early January 1949, Joan joined her new husband on his first charge: Springfield West, on the western end of Prince Edward Island. Seven miles by unpaved road from the closest community, O'Leary. Two miles from the nearest power line. Little did they know what lay in store. Letters from the Manse begins January 12, 1949, as the new Mrs. Colborne sits down to write letters by lamplight on an old portable typewriter. "It made a great excuse to not have to hear the same sermon three times," she says. "I made five copies on onion skin: one for Blair's parents, one for his brother, one for my sister, and one for my parents. The other copy I just filed away and forgot about." Later she found the letters, and made copies for her children and grandchildren. Her children thought they were worth sharing. The letters chronicle sixteen months in the life of a United Church Minister's wife: including her difficulties in learning how to cook, clean, entertain, and care for her husband and baby in a house that seems constantly in need of repair. In the midst of it all, she discovers the goodness in Island community." - rearcover. Vg. 12.00

56 DAWSON, J.W. DAWSON, John William, Sir Chain of Life in Geological Time : A Sketch of the Origin and Succession ofAnimals and Plants.
Religious Tract Society, RTS, London, 1880, 
DAWSON, J.W. The Chain of Life in Geological Time : A Sketch of the Origin and Succession of Animals and Plants. With numerous illustrations. (London): The Religious Tract Society, n.d. [1880]. Pp [i]-xiv,[1]-272,(2). Illust rated. Index. 8vo, maroon half leather, maroon marbled paper covered boards. “Questions as to the origin and history of life are not at the present time limited to mere philosophical speculation and poetical imagining. The solutions of these questions are now supposed to be based on the facts of Biology and Palaeontology; and, establishing themselves on these facts, the bolder speculators suppose that they can scale heaven, dethrone God, and sweep away all belief in the spiritual nature and higher destinies of man. No portion of our modern acquisitions in science is more closely connected withthese daring speculations than that which relates to the succession of for ms of life in geological time ; and none is more unfairly dealt with by themore extreme theorists. On the one hand, they parade carefully selected se ries of fossil species as demonstrating the reality of continuous derivation. On the other hand, when this process fails to meet the requirements of the facts, they affirm that the imperfection of the record, or of our know- ledge of it, invalidates any testimony of Palaeontology on. the subject.” -from the Preface. Contents : I. Preliminary Considerations as to the Exten t and Sources of our Knowledge. II. The Beginning of Life on the Earth. III. The Age of Invertebrates of the Sea. IV. The Origin of Plant Life on the Land. V. The Appearance of Vertebrate Animals. VI. The First Air-breathers.VII. The Empire of the Great Reptiles. VIII. The First Forests of Modern T ype. IX. The Reign of Mammals. X. The Advent of Man. XL Review of the History of Life. Sir John William Dawson, CMG, FRS, FRSC (1820-1899), was a Canadian geologist and university administrator, born in Pictou, Nova Scotia, where he attended and graduated from Pictou Academy. Of Scottish descent, Dawson attended the University of Edinburgh to complete his education, and graduated in 1842, having gained a knowledge of geology and natural history from Robert Jameson. Dawson returned to Nova Scotia in 1842, accompanying Sir Charles Lyell on his first visit to that territory. Dawson was subsequently appointed as Nova Scotia's first superintendent of education. Holding the post from 1850 to 1853, he was an energetic reformer of school design, teacher education and curriculum. From 1855 to 1893 he was professor of geology and principal of McGill University in Montreal, an institution which under his influence attained a high reputation. He was elected FRS in 1862. When the Royal Society of Canada was created he was the first to occupy the presidential chair, and he also acted as president of the British Association at its meeting at Birmingham in 1886, and president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Spine severely chipped and partly detached, heavy wear to covers, lacking free endpapers, ex-library (bookplate, inkstamps, rear pouch), some foxing and smudging, some tape repair to gutters, a few pencil marks, overall a poor copy.

"This is an account of the principal rovings of a Mediterranean cruise party, and an added appendix of a tour into sixteen countries in Central Europe. It is a meager description of the world-renowned spots visited, taking up in a brief way the history of the countries, the genesis of the people and our daily doings" - from the title-page.
