(8),9-94,(2). 8vo, black card covers, silver lettering to spine, in beige paper jacket, purple lettering to front panel and spine. "The settlement of African peoples in Nova Scotia is a richly layered story encompassing many waves of settlement and diverse circumstances -- from captives to 'freedom runners' who sailed north from the United States with hopes of establishing a new life. The poems in 'And I Alone Escaped to Tell You' endeavour to give these historical events a human voice, blending documentary material, memory, experience and imagination to evoke the lives of these early Black Nova Scotians and of the generations that followed. This collection is a moving meditation on the place of African-descended people in the Canadian story and on the threads connecting all of us to the African diaspora." - from the rear wraparound band.

Hamilton's Art of Telling History" in volume one, and Susan McEachern's essay "Souvenir of Niagara Falls: The Artistic Activities of Wilma Needham" in volume two. "n thisinstallation-based exhibition by Sylvia D. Hamilton and Wilma Needham, the artists have each created projects that explore their 'home/land', their i ndividual experiences of home in relation to the land where they were born -- a relationship in which the social and geographic spheres combine to have added cultural significance. In Hamilton's world, 'home/land' is the diasporic African Canadian experience of life in Nova Scotia; for Needham, it is the city of Niagara Falls and the natural, geographic features that gave it its name." - from the curator's introduction.

"This third book of poetry by Eugene Hamm expresses themes of awe, wonder and reverence for the everyday progressions of nature - Nature with a capital 'N'.
There is in Windsongs and Wordweavings, the sense that mankind must not ignore the root causes and values which lie in the processes of growth and the changing seasons, for it is here that the human species, too, finds its origins; here is seen creation still in progress. Mankind could easily vanish from this progression. A disappearance due to the wastefulness, overconsumption and greed of the throwaway, plastic, western society." from the rear.

Scott, though he didnot court the limelight, took an important part in high politics; and from the quotations taken from the records of his political conversations (whic h ran from the year 1911) it is now possible to see the part that he took in affairs of state.

These are all fully dealt with, as are the changes that came over Malanchester about the time that Scott went to live there.

"Our knowledge of Alexander the Great is derived fromthe widely varying accounts of five authors who wrote three and more centu ries after his death. The value of each account can be determined in detailonly by discovering the source from which it drew, section by section, whe ther from a contemporary document, a memoir by a companion of Alexander, a hostile critique or a romanticizing narrative. In this book the three earliest accounts are studied in depth, and it becomes apparent that each authorused more than one source, and that only occasionally did any two of them or all three use the same source for an incident or a series of incidents.

"Lagarto once was a thriving colony world. Its booming economywas fueled bythe exportation of a unique brandy made from a plant found in its tropical rain forests. But after years of prosperity, the boom collaps ed when the brandy lost its unique appeal. An interstellar cartel had founda way to artificially synthesize a brandy that people liked almost as much ... and which cost much less to produce, leaving Lagarto a dark, destitute world overrun by corruption, prostitution, and drugs. Juno is a dirty copy with a difficult past and even more difficult relationships. Born on Lagar to to parents who emigrated from Earth during the planet's boom but arrivedafter its economy crashed, he is but one of the many Lagartans who live li ves of quiet desperation. But it wasn't always like this for Juno. When he was a young cop on the force of capital city Koba's Office of Police, he and his partner worked to break the drug trade. Now his former partner is thebeleaguered chief of police, and Juno is a copy on the take, facing a blea k future." - from the dust jacket. Very good in unclipped dust jacket.

"By proud tradition members of Britain's royal family serve for a period in the Royal Navy; by his entry into Dartmouth the Prince of Wales follows in the steps of royal sailors over the centuries who have made their mark in the senior service not "because of their royal status but in spite of it. j. No less than three of the sons of the 'sailor king',King George V, trained to become naval ornceis, a tradition carried into t he next generation by Prince Philip, and now by Prince Charles. King GeorgeV himself won the respect and loyaity ot his people by his devotion to his naval career; having endured the hardships of naval life towards the end o f the last century he rose to commmand through his own efforts, until his career was abruptly halted by the unexpected turn of fate which brought him to the throne, a pattern which was to be repeated in the life of his son King George VI. It was left to another branch of the family to achieve the heights of success in their naval careers. Related to the British royal family by marriage, Prince Louis of Battenberg and his son Earl Mountbatten haveplayed leading roles in welding the British navy as a great righting force . But the first truly professional royal sailor was William IV who was blooded in battle before he was 15; and following his great- uncle's example Prince Alfred, the second son of Queen Victoria, devoted his life to a naval career. Around these central characters A. Cecil Hampshire has written an authoritative and fascinating study of the two traditions on which Britain’sheritage is founded - her monarchy and her navy - and how they have the in tertwining of the two over the centuries has led to the enrichment of both.- from the dj flap.

"Often the most dangerous missions in World War Twowere carried out by small bands of ships and men dedicated to their task, but some of whom, because of their speciality, have escaped recognition by Naval Historians. A.

In these exploits each branch of our naval services is represented - the Royal Navy, the Marines, the Reserves and the Merchant N avy, each adding its contribution to the glory that Britain’s navy won for herself in the winning of the war at sea." - from the dj.

22988 HAMSUN, Knut BOTHMER, Gerry Mysteries. First Printing in dustjacket
Farrar, Straus and Giroux, New York, 1971, 
HAMSUN, Knut. Mysteries. Newly translated from the Norwegian by Gerry Bothmer. New York : Farrar, Straus and Giroux, (1971). First Printing. Pp (8),3-340,(6). 8vo, red-violet cloth, gilt letering to spine., top edge dyed pink. "In the great cycle of Hamsun's development, Mysteries, originally published in 1892, follows Hunger and precedes Pan. Taken together, these three separate novels reveal one act of the author's own spiritual drama. A stranger arrives in a small Norwegian coastal town and immediately creates an atmosphere of mystery and excitement. Nobody knows why he came or what his intentions are. Johan Nagel doesn't fit into any of the patterns to which the provincial mind is accustomed. During the course of the novel, Nagel will act as the catalyst that brings to the surface all the hidden impulses, concealed thoughts, unavowable interests and darker instincts of the townspeople, chief among whom are Dagny Kielland, the pastor's daughter and a femme fatale; Martha Gude, a lonely and frightened spinster; and ‘The Midget,’ a grotesque and tragic clown, whose mind is as deformed as his body. But the principal character is Nagel himself, a fascinating blend of arrogance and humility, virtue and depravity, sanity and madness - a man cursed with the merciless gift of unsparing insight into the human soul, particularly his own; a man possessed by the Nietzschean will for power and domination. With its unorthodox treatment of the demonic, its stream-of-consciousness-like monologues, its brilliant touches of irony and humor, Mysteries, over seventyyears after its publication, remains a remarkable and revolutionary novel. Gerry Bothmer has prepared this new translation of Mysteries, which has lo ng been unavailable in this country." (from the dj). Knut Hamsun (August 4,1859 – February 19, 1952) was a Norwegian author, who was awarded the Nobe l Prize in Literature in 1920.

First, these stories are crossings to someplace else. Fiction, as John Metcalf notes in 'Single Gents Only' is about more than its subject matter. The scruffy student in his sucrrilous boarding house follows stairways that lead into the depths of perception, to a time when childhoodwas enchantment, and language put you in contact with an absolute world. S econd, you will find in the depths of these stories the perceptible murmur of another story. [...] As places of passage, 'Metavisions' are doors, windows, mirrors, and staircases. In and out, backward and forward, up and down. The images of 'Metavisions' show the shapeless presence of other books, shining through these pages like watermarks, back, perhas to primal myth." -from the rear cover.
