"Faisant partie des plans de restauration du Village Historique Acadien, on retrouve la Maison Robichaud d'Inkerman. Afin de mener à bon terme la restauration de cette maison, il est primordial de situer ses vestiges architecturaux dans un cadre historique défini. Ce travail ne sera pas une étude exhaustive de la famille Robichaud et del'histoire d'Irikerman, mais tout simplement une approche pour déterminer les faits marquants de l'histoire de cette famille acadienne et de leur environnement physique. Par ailleurs, il nous semble important d'inclure dans cette étude une tentative d'histoire quantitative concernant cette famille.Car en plus de présenter les caractéristiques architecturales de ce bâtime nt, il est indispensable le faire l'étude du potentiel économique de ce foyer. A partir de registres paroissiaux, de documents ayant a trait aux concessions et titres de terres, de livres de comptes de compagnies Jersiaises; l'etude de la famille Robichaud et de son environnement physique est un chapitre important dans tout ouvrage voulant comprendre l'établissement des Acadiens dans leur Nord-Est du Nouveau-Brunswick, devenue leur Nouvelle-Acadie."

31125 LECKER, Robert (ed.) Canadian Canons : Essays in Literary Value. softcover
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1991, ISBN:080206700x 
LECKER, Robert (ed.). Canadian Canons : Essays in Literary Value.Toronto : University of Toronto Press, ((1991). First Edition. Pp (12),[3]-251,(3). Index. 8vo, yellow and olive card covers, lettered in black. "Which works ofCanadian literature are the most important? vVhat makes them valuable? And who decides? Such innocent-sounding questions - such hotly debated answers . The establishment of the Canadian canon or canons (those works that form the recognized foundation, or foundations, of our national literature) is asubject of intense controversy today, touching on a wide range of politica l and social issues. Robert Lecker has brought together the first collection of essays to focus on Canadian literary canons. Its twelve essays on English and French criticism, fiction, poetry, and drama are written by accomplished scholars from across the country who share a desire to answer the fundamental questions raised above. They are concerned less with identifying aCanadian canon and more with examining the forces that shape canonical act ivity in Canadian literature and criticism. By engaging in this process they also try to account for shifts in taste, differing ideas about the appropnateness of genre, the relationship between politics and literary value, and the impact of canonical choices on marginalized groups that have traditionally been excluded from the canon. These essays explore a central component in Canadian cultural history. Inevitably contentious, they will fuel debate on a host of contemporary cultural issues, not limited to literature buttouching on all the arts and beyond, as Canadians struggle with the increa singly urgent questions of who we are and what we value." (Abstract). Contents : Introduction (by Robert Lecker); Creating the Canadian canon (by LeonSurette); Early Canadian literary histories and the function of a canon (b y Dermot McCarthy); The canon between the wars: Field notes of a feminist lierary archaeologist (by Carole Gerson); Leonard Cohen, Phyllis Webb, and the End(s) of modernism (by Stephen Scobie); The idea of a national theatre (by Denis Salter); Voices (off): Deconstructing the modern English-Canadiandramatic canon (by Richard Paul Knowles); The New Quebec theatre (by Lucie Robert); Critical instincts in Quebec: From the Quier Revolution to the po stmodern age, 1960-1990 (by Caroline Bayard); Conflicted vision : a consideration of canon and genre in English-Canadian literature (by Donna Benett);Calgary, canonization, and class: Deciphering List B (by Lawrence Mathews) ; Culture and its values : critical revisionism in Quebec in the 1980s (by Sherry Simon); Normalizing the subject : Linda Hutcheon and the English-Canadian postmodern.(by Lorraine Weir).

Je pars, bien volontiers, au pied levé, sur les routes des clochards célestes qui déroulent leurs rouleaux décriture depuis Paris jusqu'aux dunes de l'Atlantique. Il arrive aussi que j'appuie ma vieille bécane lyrique contre le parapet du petit pontqui franchit la Rimarde où un cycliste considérable connut l'illumination. Les soirs d'hiver, j'allume la radio et j'essaie de capter, sur les petite s ondes, des musiques inouées, malgré les parasites : je me perds dans un arrière-pays lointain quelque part en Méditerranée ou sur les bords de la mer Baltique, je sauve les meubles intérieurs en me faisant la malle. Ces promenades de réveur incorrigible, indiscipliné, je les dois à Li Po ou à Po Chu yi, vieux poètes chinois adeptes du tch'an qui m'ont appris, par l'exemple, à réconcilier méditation et vie quotidienne, à faire comme le petit troglodyte qui se pose sur une seule branche : satori ou, à tout le moins, de la lecture sauvage." - from the back cover.

Don Ledger (b. 1945, Halifax, Nova Scotia).

A survey of the September 2, 1998 crash of Swissair Flight 111 off of Peggy's Cove, killing all 229 people on board the plane.

"Every disaster has its own cause and its own effects. Undoubtedly, the effects of the September 1998 crash of Swissair Flight 111 into the unforgiving waters off Peggys Cove, Nova Scotia - killing all 229 people on board - has had tremendous personal consequences. The purpose of this book, though, is to reach back to events leading up to the crash, in order to discover what caused the worst disaster in Canada's aviation history: to find out why, in 16 terrifying minutes, a state-of-the-art jetliner lost all navigational aids; and why, when only minutes away from Halifax International Airport, it turned back out to sea.

There were no survivors of Swissair 111 to describe what happened and almost nothing larger than hand-sized pieces from which to reconstruct the accident. But author and pilot Don Ledger carefully re-creates what took place in the cockpit of the stricken airliner, describing each link in a disastrous chain of events. With clarity, depth, and respect for all those involved, Swissair Down takes us from the pilot's first distress call to the moment - 16 minutes later - when the aircraft hit the sea and exploded, from recovery efforts aboard local fishing boats to a high-tech military search, and from the shocking complacency of the airline industry to our future safety as passengers." - from rear cover.

Farrar, Straus & Giroux, New York, 1971, 
LEDUC, Violette. Mad in Pursuit. Translated from the French by Derek Coltman. New York : Farrar, Straus & Giroux, (1971). First American Edition. Pp (4),[5]-351,(1). 8vo, two-tone orange cloth, red lettering to spine, red andpink flowers to front board. "The present volume covers the postwar years in Paris (1945-49). The war is over and slowly the lights are coming on again. A new generation of writers has appeared, and every day, at marble-topped tables in the Cafe de Flore, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de beauvoir—theking and queen of literary Paris-—are writing their books. Seated shyly at a respectful distance, Violette Leduc watches them with ardor. She is alre ady in hei thirties, and entirely unknown but she is burning with hero-worship and an obsession to become known as a writer herself. Through a friend,her filrst manuscript is finally shown to Simone de Beauvoir, and suddenly miracles begin to happen. De Beauvoir likes what she reads, counsels and e ncourages her to continue with her writing. Leduc responds with a torrent of emotion directed toward her benefactor. De Beauvoir deflects this emotioninto more productive channels (she advises always "More work, ore work," c oolly stating that her own life "lies elsewhere"). So, alone and in pain, Leduc works. Sartre publishes a piece of her work in progress in Le Temps Modernes. She is a writer! A handsome young editor at Gallimard, named AlbertCamus, offers her a contract for her first book, which will have only a su cces d'estime. At a bar, she is introduced to Jean Genet, and through Genetshe is presently invited to spend weekends at Jean Cocteau's country house and to dine in Passy with a wealthy bibliophile named Jacques, who arrange s to bring out a deluxe edition of her stillborn novel. Along the way, there are vivid details of literary history: what Valery said when he first read the manuscript of Genet's Notre-Dame des Fleurs: "Il faut bruler ca ... This must be buirned ..." There is outlandish melodrama: Genet, invited to adinner at Leduc's flat with his "adopted son," takes inexplicable affront at something Violette Leduc has said, snatches the tablecloth into the air,thus throwing the food to the floor, and leaves in a rage. There are memor able portraits: of Berard and S outine, Giacomettim and Nathalie Sarraute, of the legendary bookshop of Paul Morihien, under Colette's apartment in the Palais Royale, and of the fabulous Cafe de Flore, "a beehive gone mad." But, interlarding it all, there is the personality of Violette Leduc: ungainly, uncertain, homely, masochistic, falling in love with heterosexual womenon the one hand and homosexual men on the other, and at the same time stru ggling painfully to write, and slowly makng her way through the French literary jungle. Above all, there is Violete Leduc's unique literary gift. It was Cocteau who once said that a writer "must know how to go too far." What distinguishes Mme Leduc from lesser autobiographers is her sure istinct for"going too far." She has a genius for extremes. She can be successfully, e ven gracefully, shameless. She can confess things about herself which in another writer would seem distasteful or merely trivial. But Violette Leduc speaks with a conviction and purity which convince us on every page that sheis not only telling us someting important about the mystery of human natur e, but something which coukd not have been revealed in any other way."

Lord Dunsany's edition of his 'Complete Poems' has long needed revision and expansion. Miss Curtayne has now fulfilled this need, regrouping the poems by theme while adding forty-five to the canon. The poetry of Francis Ledwidge has never been out of favour although he has been categorized in misleading ways. In presenting what amounts to a new text we feel that Ledwidge's true voice can more clearly be heard." -- from dust jacket.

"Whenever the Reverend Dr. Allan W. Lee travels - his ministerial work often takes him to distant places - the interests of literature and humanity benefit alike. An insightful observer of his fellowman and his environment Dr. Lee returns from his journneys to share his enriching experiences with readers everywhere. Two summers in Mexico with the Mexican Bible Society, for instance, resulted in the book The Burro and the Bibles. Extensive sojourns to Europe, the Middle East, Asiaand Hawaii provided inspiration for Under the Shadow of the Nine Dragons a nd Reflections Along the Reef. In 1970 Dr. Lee attended the 8th Assembly ofthe World Convention of Churches of Christ in Adelaide, Australia. True to form, the peripatetic pastor set down his impressions in Disciple Down Und er. These eighteen sketches about people and faraway places contain observations, interviews, visits in homes, descriptions of cities and happenings of the moment while moving from continent to continent. In the vignettes theauthor not only records the perceptive reactions of a veteran traveler, he also sees in the simple, everyday activities of mankind and the world, som ething of the Eternal. The result is a lively, highly rewarding spiritual travelogue." (from the dj).

First Edition. Pp (6),[vii ]-ix,(5),[1]-319,(3). Index. 8vo, blue cloth, black lettering to spine. "Important new information on the road to war in the Pacific and on Britain's decline as an Asian power is revealed in this book, which is based largely on newly opened, unpublished British Foreign Office and Cabinet records. The book also takes a fresh look at the continuing debate over appeasement, explaining why Britain pursued a firm line with Japan while assiduously trying to conciliate Germany and Italy. In exploring these contrasting ways of dealing with what were perceived as essentially similar expansionist threats, the author quite naturally examines the interaction of developments in East Asia and Europe. Never losing sight of the importance of Anglo-Americanrelations or of Britain's military weakness, he attempts to place Britain' s East Asian policy within the overall framework of her response to a global crisis. Considerable attention is given to showing how profoundly the Chamberlain government's inaccurate estimates of the relative strengths of theChinese Nationalist government, the Japanese militarists, the Chinese Comm unist movement, and Soviet capabilities in the Far East affected the development and implementation of British policy." (FROM THE DJ). Contents : 1. Britain Between East and West. 2. The Outbreak of Fighting in China. 3- The Brussels Conference. 4- The Growing World Crisis. 5. Crosscurrents in East Asia. 6.

"Winston Churchill is arguably the most famous Briton, but a shroud of mystery still surrounds him and his family. Myths propagated by Winston's political enemies persist to this day, yetthe truth is just as compelling: Winston's mother, Jennie, had a secret af fair with the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) and her spendthrift habits devastated the family's reputation; his younger brother Jack has beenlargely forgotten but played a crucial role both in Winston's successes an d in holding the family together during the tough times. From the allegations of Sir Randoph's syphilis and Winston's illegitimacy to Jennie's gambling problem and Jack's dashed ambitions, authors Celia and John Lee use never-before-seen archives to cut through the rumors and lies and get to the truth about the life of the former prime minister and his relationship with his family. Chock-full of intrigue and scandal, The Churchills finally sets the record straight regarding one of the world's greatest dynasties." -- from dust jacket. Very good in dust jacket.

The Gods is Dennis Lee's first collection of adult poetry since 1972. In its strength and breadth of vision it is one of the most arresting books of poetry produced in Canada in the last twenty years. The first section includes a startling variety of short poems, from high-spirited love lyrics to grave meditations.Their sounds range from the traditional to the jazzy, but all are remarked by the searching spirit that has established Lee as a poet of surpassing e xcellence. The second section is devoted to the extended poem, 'The Death of Harold Ladoo', an elegy for the Trinidad-born writer who was murdered in 1973. This disturbing and deeply moving work has already been acclaimed a landmark achievement in Canaidan poetry." - from the rear cover.

Toy 2452.

Written by Eric Cuthbert Bernard Lee, O.B.E., C.Eng., F.R.I.N.A. (a former naval officer and for many years the secretary of the Royal Naval Life Saving Committee ) and his son, Kenneth Lee, MBBS, LRCP.MRCS, DIH. (b. 1944).

"More British seaman died in the Second World War from exposure than from direct enemy action. Yet many of these deaths occured in conditions far less severe than those successfully endured by men with a better understanding of their environment when sailing, rowing, even drifting, in open boats for longer periods over longer distances. Since that war, gret improvements have been made in lifesaving equipment and in the teching of survival techniques, yet the number of lives lost unneccessarily at sea and round the coastlines of the wotrld remains tragically high.

It is against this background that Eric Lee and his son, Dr. Kenneth lee, have compiled this remarkable and very important book, developed from two earlier private studies, Survival at Sea and Exposure at Sea, which created world-wide interest when presented by the International radio-Medical Centre in Rome.

In broad outline, Safety and Survival at Sea is an anthology of first-person accounts of man's ability - or inability - to survive at Sea. The 'contributions' come from an impressive range of men and women from all countries and from many centuries; there are the depositions of survivors of collisions, fires, torpedoings, aircraft crashes, yacht sinkings and the like, made shortly after their rescue from the sea. There are accounts of experiences on rafts, in lifeboats, and in the sea. from the Tropics to the Arctic oceans, and first-hand observations from the logbooks and writings of such people as Heyerdahl, Bombard, Chichester, Rose and Knox-Johnston." from the jacket.

"Lee's research included visists to the famous salmon river systems of New Brunswick, Quebec, Scotland and Iceland. In adddition, he faced squarely such issues as the reckless slaughter of fish, the mismanagement of forests and farmlands, pollution, and native fishing rights. Above all, he talked to 'the friends of the river' -- the people determined to prevent the extinction of the Atlantic salmon. This researc h is the basis of Home Pool's controversial conclusion: that governments must transfer management of our rivers and watersheds to private owners, conservation trusts and river communities. Only such radical reform can save the legendary salmon and its home waters, a resource that the world is close to losing forever." - from the rear cover. Very good. 17.50

He was also one of the most colorful pirates of all time, becoming the model for countless blood-and-thunder tales of sea rovers. His daring exploits, personal courage, terrifying appearance, and fourteen wives made him a legend in his own lifetime. The legends and myths about Blackbeard have become wilder rather than tamer in the 250 years since his gory but valiant death at Ocracoke Inlet.
