MILLER, Orlo. A Century of Western Ontario : The Story of London, "The FreePress," and Western Ontario, 1849-1949. Toronto: The Ryerson Press, (June 11, 1949). First Edition. Pp (4),v-xi,(1),1-289,(3) + portrait frontispiece+ 7 plates . 8vo, blue cloth, black lettering to spine. Watters p. 713, Rh odenizer p.595. Hanson Orlo Miller (b. April 1, 1911, London, Ont. - d. 1993), Canadian writer, historian,and latterly an Anglican minister. Foreword by Arthur R. Ford. "This book, written in a semi-dramatized style, by Orlo Miller, special writer for the C.B.C., contains the story of Southwestern Ontario as reflected in the columns of The London Free Press tor the last hundred years. By its very nature a newspaper is a diary of the times, a mirror held to the contemporary scene in its various aspects— local, national and international. Orlo Miller, a former staff member of The London (Ontario) Free Press, having spent several years in research, here presents a lively and readable account ot what has taken place in the last ten decades. Here is no collection of dry statistical data but rather real, living, flesh-and-blood people taking part in historic incidents as revealed in the yellowed columns of The London Free Press. It is a book to be read and prized by anyone who has ever lived in that area of Canada, and indeed by anyone interested in a story of a cross-section of North American rural and urban lifefrom the year 1849 when The London Free Press was founded. The growth of L ondon from a struggling backwoods village to the metropolis of the smiling countryside of Western Ontario and the parallel expansion of The London Free Press from a tiny weekly, struggling for survival, to one of Canada's leading daily newspapers form the twin themes from wfohich Orlo Miller has skilfully spun a single story. It is an exciting tale, full of incident and action. Pioneer problems, the backwash of the Rebellion of 1837, and the struggle for responsible government find their place here, as they did in the columns of the paper which, for one hundred years, has faithfully reported them. This is more than the story of a newspaper. It is the saga of Western Ontario, and in microcosm, a picture of the growth and development of Canada. There are plenty of ups and downs, business booms and depressions, new industries coming and old ones fading out. A procession of personalities passes through the pages, from the Mad Hatter, Thomas Dixon, to better-known figures like Sir Adam Beck. And battling it out with numerous rivals, ever seeking to keep in the van of progress, and to find new ways to present the news and make it more attractive is The Free Press, which comes to assume asort of personality itself. Part of this personality is a composite of the remarkable collection of people who carried on The Free Press tradition. P art of it stems from the small but equally remarkable group of men responsible for shaping and administering the policies of the paper during its century of service to London and Western Ontario. This is no formal eulogy, buta sprightly and sparkling survey of a newsworthy communityv during a cruci al period, and of the way its newspaper fitted into the picture." (from thedj).

MILLER, Richard. On the Art of Singing. New York / Oxford : Oxford University Press, 1996. Pp [i]-xii,(4),[1]-318,(2). Index. 8vo, green paper coveredboards, silver lettering to spine. "Of all of the performance arts, that o f singing is the most complex and its preparation and practice the most fraught with controversy. Teachers argue over the best method, and students often move from teacher to teacher in search of the ultimate vocal style. Technique is only one aspect of the singer's art, however. Considerations of musical and performance style, career development, and long-term vocal health are also vital to the successful singer. This exciting new collection of essays is the first book to look at the art of singing in its totality. Written in a direct, non-technical style, On the Art of Singing is a comprehensive manual that deals with all aspects of singing, from the physiology andacoustics of the singing voice to career building. Divided into four main section - vocal pedagogy, style and interpretation, professional preparation, and vocal technique, the book is structured such that the reader may pick and choose as personal interests and need dictate." - from the dj.

In the History and Structure of Languages series. “For almost one hundred years the genetic affiliation of the Japanese language to other languages, particularly to those on the Asiatic mainland, has provided a linguistic and historical enigma of extraordinary complexity. Historians as well as linguists have studied the problem since its solution would shed crucial new light on the origin of the Japanese people. Japanese has often been classified among the Altaic language family, other members ofwhich include Turkish, Mongol, and the Tungus languages of northeast Asia, but a rigorous scientific demonstration of such a genetic relationship has hitherto been lacking. In Japanese and the Other Altaic Languages this lon g-awaited documentation is provided for the first time.” (from the dj). Contents : 1. Introduction. 2. Phonological Conspectus. 3.

Double column. 4to, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The glory and one-upmanship of the mid and late thirties, when the biggest, fastest and grandest liners sailed into service, were followed by those hideously destructive years of the Second World War. Post-war prosperity, the emergence of a new travelling middle class and more tourists than ever, produced a triumphant revival on the North Atlantic. For a decade or so it was the most successful period in transatlantic history -- and it was the last. The commercial jet came, immediately conquered and eventually sent almost every ship to seek a new life in the cruise trade." - front dj flap. “Largely superseded by commercial jets as a means of crossing the Atlantic, liners have found a new role as holiday cruiseships and are carrying more passengers than ever before. In this luxurious photographic album William Miller tells the story of the dramatic transition from the glorious superships of the thirties, Normandie, Bremen and Queen Mary among them, through the destructive years of the Second World War, to the current boom in ocean cruising simply for the pleasure of it. No true lover of these majestic vessels will be able to resist the temptation to feast their eyes on this outstanding collection of unique photographs.” - rear panel of dj. Contents : 1.

March 23, 1943, Montreal). "Edward Wentworth Beatty, president of the world's largest privately-owned railway system for twenty-four years, was a man of energy and whole-hearted concentration. The railway filled his life, except in his later years when he took time out to further the internests of education in his role as Chancellor of McGill University. He also participated in directing the many socialwelfare organizations of which he was president. This biography of a leadi ng Canadian tells of Beatty'sb early days, his school and university activities, and tiis friends—those few close friends for whose regard and attection he had the greatest respect and gratitude. The struggle between Canada'stwo railway systems, the contest of wills between Henry Thornton of the CN R and Beatty of the CPR is herre desbribed in full, with Beatty's long fight against nationalization forming an exciting chapter in the life of this famous Canadian—an invaluable reference for students of Canadian railvays and railway problems. Born in 1877 in Thorold, Ontario, at his death in 1943 Beatty was acclaimed throughout the British Empire. This is the life history of a man with a single-minded devotion to the interests of the railway, closely identified with the turbulent story of Canada's railway expansion and the settlement of the western provinces." (from the dj). Introduction : Beatty the Man; Chapters : 1. Home, School and Varsity Days; 2. Beatty Makesthe Grade; 3. First Year as President; 4. Rivalry between Railways; 5. Bea tty Clashes with Thornton; 6. Beatty Fights the Slump; 7. Beatty Plays Politics; 8. Cooperation versus Unification; 9. Educational and Philanthropuc Activities; 10. World War II: Beatty Cracks.

The major units of the stratigraphy have been established, though the stuctural history is still poorly understood. The series has been invaded by a group of intrusive rocks probably all pre-Middle Cambrian, and rfegional metamorphism varies from low to very high grade. Investigation of wall-rock changes in the vicinity of known sulphide occurrences show them to be accompanied by a halo of low grade metamorphic minerals derived from those formed during regional metamorphism of higher grade. In somecases the halo is suffieicnetly large, and the minerals sufficiently chara cteristic, to suggest use of the halo as a guide in prospecrting.” (page 1). Margins browned, else very good. 20.00

"By means of an exhaustive investigation and infinite ingenuity Sir Eugen has fitted together a piece-by-piece history of interrelated naval battles -- Coronel and The Falklands in the First World War, the Battle of the Plate in the Second -- while the remarkable epilogues bring the interest up to the present day. His sources are literally world-wide; as one is taken through thefamous occasions -- and behind the scenes of action to the diplomatic desk s -- the passages come, in day-to-day chronological sequence, sometimes from previously published books (most of which have been long out of print, others of which have never been available in the English language); sometimesfrom unpublished material (letteres from participants, etc.); sometimes fr om the British side, sometimes from the German side. As Admiral of the Fleet Sir Philip Vian says in his preface: 'Every facet of drama and adventure,from diplomacy on the highest level, through battle at sea, to the courage and stoicism of imprisoned sailors, are indelibly fixed in the multi-colou red mosaic of this vivid narrative.'" - from the dj.

University of Toronto Press, Toronto / Buffalo / London, 2016, ISBN:9781442615380 2016 1442615389 
MILLMAN, Brock. Polarity, Patriotism, and Dissent in Great War Canada, 1914-1919. Toronto / Buffalo / London : University of Toronto Press, (2016). First Paperback Edition. Pp (8),[ix]-x,(6),[3]-358,(4). With a few b&w Illustrations in the text. 8vo [150 x 228 mm], photo-illustrated white cardcovers, lettered in red & black.

Brock Millman (b. 1963) was a Professor of History at the University of Western Ontario at the time of publication.

"Compared to the idea that Canada was a nation forged in victory on Vimy Ridge, the reality of dissent and repression at home strikes a sour note. Through censorship, conscription, and internment, the government of Canada worked more ruthlessly than either Great Britain or the United States to suppress opposition to the war effort during the First World War.

Polarity, Patriotism, and Dissent in Great War Canada, 1914-1919 examines the basis for those repressive policies. Brock Millman, an expert on wartime dissent in both the United Kingdom and Canada, argues that Canadian policy was driven first and foremost by a fear that opposition to the war amongst French Canadians and immigrant communities would provoke social tensions and possibly even a vigilante backlash from the wars most fervent supporters in British Canada.

Highlighting the class and ethnic divisions which characterized public support for the war, Polarity, Patriotism, and Dissent in Great War Canada, 1914-1919 offers a broad and much-needed reexamination of Canadian government policy on the home front." (Abstract).

First Paperback Edition. Pp (4),[v]-xxiv,(2),[3]-411,(5). Illustrate. Index. 8vo, illustrated white card covers, lettered in black, red and green. "Until now few people have been aware of the prevalence of belief in some form of rebirth or reincarnation among North American native peoples. This collection of essays by anthropologists and one psychiatrist examines this concept among native American societies, from near the time of contact until the present day. Amerindian Rebirth opens with a foreword by Gananath Obeyesekere that contrasts North American and Hindu Buddhist Jain beliefs. The introduction gives an overview, and the first chapter summarizes the context, distribution, and variety of recorded belief. All the papers chronicle some aspect of rebirth belief in a number of different cultures. Essays cover such topics as seventeenth-century Huron eschatology, Winnebago ideology, varying forms of Inuit belief, and concepts of rebirth found among subarctic natives and Northwest Coast peoples. The closing chapters address the genesis and anthropological study ofAmerindian reincarnation. In addition, the possibility of evidence for the actuality of rebirth is addressed. Amerindian Rebirth will further our und erstanding of concepts of self-identity, kinship, religion, cosmology, resiliency, and change among native North American peoples." (Abstract).

MILLS, C. Wright. The Sociological Imagination. New York : Oxford University Press, 1959. First Edition. Pp (12),3-234,(4). 8vo, black cloth, blue andwhite lettering to spine, blue decoration to front board. "Lecturing recen tly in Europe, Professor Mills found it difficult to explain why American social scientists were absorbed by opinion polls and theoretical studies at a time when man's very freedom and reason are at stake. This experience channelled his own convictions into the writing of this book. The SociologicalImagination is a cultural critique of the social sciences by one of Americ a's most stimulating social analysts. It contains acid criticisms of ascendant schools' of sociology in the United States and a detailed restatement and sharp defense of the tradition of classic sociological analysis. Variously depicted by artists and writers as the helpless and uneasy prey of forces beyond his control (e.g. War), modern man appears in danger ot losing control over bis own destiny. It is the intellectual and political task of thesocial scientists, Mr. Mills believes, to relate such troubled feelings to structural changes of our society, to examine, for example, personal marri age troubles in the light of institutional crises of the family, and bv discovering causes to suggest reasonable choices of action. Fashionable schools of sociology have lost sight of this task. Among those Mr. Mills lambastes are the grand theorists, represented by Talcott Parsons and his followers, the abstracted empiricists, led by Paul Lazarsfeld, Samuel Stoufter, and others, liberal reformers in the social work tradition, and the newest bureaucratic breed - human relations experts and market researchers. His attackwill outrage some people, but it will spur others to work with renewed ent husiasm toward the clarification and responsible solution of present-day problems." (from the dj). Contents : 1. The Promise. 2. Grand Theory. 3. Abstracted Empiricism. 4. Types of Practicality. 5. The Bureaucratic Ethos. 6. Philosophies of Science. 7. The Human Variety. 8. Uses of History. 9. On Reason and Freedom. 10. On Politics. Appendix: On Intellectual Craftsmanship.Index. Charles Wright Mills (August 28, 1916 – March 20, 1962) was an Amer ican sociologist, and a professor of sociology at Columbia University from 1946 until his death in 1962. Mills was published widely in popular and intellectual journals, and is remembered for several books, including The Sociological Imagination, which presents a model of analysis for the interdependence of subjective experiences within a person's biography, the general social structure, and historical development.

"Life as a lightkeeper is almost impossible for most people to imagine: isolation on rugged shores through foggy days and stormy nights, often with only the crashing waves for company. In 'Vanishing Lights', author Chris Mills captures his own experience as a lightkeeper on four unique Maritime islands -- Seal, Cross, Machias Seal, and Gannet Rock -- and uncovers their remarkable histories. Each island's story is layered with fascinatingdetails, including tales of adventure delivered by fishermen, birdwatchers , tourists, and friends; accounts of shipwrecks and ghosts that haunt the shores; and Mills' own engaging memories." - from the rear cover.

Map. 8vo, photo-illustrated card covers with pale blue spine, "Lancelot Press" to foot of spine and rear cover, "Nimbus Publishing Ltd." to copyright page. "Lightkeeping is a special lifestyle, little publicized, and one which is quickly drawing to a closein Canada and across the world. In 'Vanishing Lights', the author, who is a lightkeeper, relates his experiences while working on four unique islands: Seal, Cross, Machias Seal and Gannet Rock. Through personal anecdotes, hedetails the strangeness of foggy days, the excitement of winter storms, hi s encounters with animals and meetings with people -- fishermen, birdwatchers, tourists and friends, who share with him their own tales of adventure. This 'dream job' has its distractions, as on the swirling, noisy -- and internationally disputed -- bird sanctuary, Machias Seal Island. But mostly there is solitude and with it comes the psychological adjustments and sometimes unusual behaviour of keepers, such as that imposed by life on the black and white pillar situated on Gannet Rock. There are no trees on this island, no grass and very little space to escape the punishing tides of the Bay of Fundy. A keeper is brought out by helicopter, landed and told to await the next chopper in four weeks' time. To an avid keeper, this is a challenge and a wonderfully fulfilling way to earn a living. As the author explores these islands, he learns of their histories, their mysteries and ghosts. He comes across wrecks of ships and learns of survivors and heroes. He watchesthe evacuation of a keeper and his family from a station on what is to bec ome a deserted island. All the while, he ponders the distinctive characteristics of this disappearing profession." - from rear. Very good. 9.00

37474 MILLS, Eric L. BRANDT, Karl) Biological Oceanography. 2012 Edition.
University of Toronto Press, Toronto , 2012, ISBN:9781442613720 
MILLS, Eric L. Biological Oceanography : An Early History, 1870-1960. With a foreword by John Cullen and a new introduction by the author. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (2012). . Pp. [i]-xvii,(3),[1]-378,(2). Illustrated. 8vo, blue cardcovers. Written by a Dalhousie University professor. First published in 1989, Eric L. Millss comprehensive history of biological oceanography has been praised as superb (BioScience) and proof that history need not be dull (The Northern Mariner). This first history of the field, which chronicles the scientific work and creativity of its chief contributors, tells a riveting story that is far from narrowly scientific and thoroughly accessible to general readers. Mills shows how the work and ideas of themain actors are inseparable from some seemingly unrelated factors, includi ng Prussian imperialism, agricultural chemistry, microbiology, and the problems of German universities. Mills also illustrates the significant roles played in the fields development by the failures of commercial fisheries, the development of analytical chemistry, the establishment of international scientific organizations, and sheer scientific curiosity. This new edition of Biological Oceanography includes a fresh introduction by the author, as well as an original foreword by noted oceanographer John Cullen. It makes anexcellent companion to Mills's recent history of mathematical and physical oceanography, the multi-award-winning and widely acclaimed The Fluid Envel ope of Our Planet." - from first page summary.

Nevertheless, over two hundred cases of lost pressure control were experienced y operators in Texas and Louisiana during the last five years. [...] During my career inthe drilling industry I have worked in various parts of the world, first f or the old Anglo-Iranian Oil Company and then for companies of the Shell Group, progressing from roughneck to superintendent, and lately as trainer.
