40304 NICKERSON, Granville H. One Hook, One Fish : A Memoir : My Father and His Brothers. First Edition in dustjacket, Signed.
Granville H. Nickerson, Cobourg, Ontario, 2002, ISBN:096897970X 2002 096897970X 
NICKERSON, Granville H., M.D. One Hook, One Fish : A Memoir : My Father and His Brothers. (Cobourg, Ontario : Granville H. Nickerson, 2002). First Edition. "Printed by Haynes Printing, Cobourg, Ontario". Pp [i]-viii,1-232. With illustrations in colour and b&w in the text. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

Granville Hubert Nickerson, M.D. (b. 1922, Cape Sable Island, Shelburne County) was a surgeon lieutenant in the RCN.

“Dr. Nickerson, the little boy, remembers the historic waterfront of Liverpool, Nova Scotia as a place of wonders - the large dark sailing vessels with their huge white sails, yellow masts and booms, the colourful smaller motor boats, yachts of the wealthy, and other fascinating sailing ships. The brave and hardy fishermen wearing colourful costumes walking along the wharf appeared like giants from some distant land. Mr. John F. Seldon's store, "Marine Supplies" rivaled Dickens s Olde Curiosity Shop.

Dr. Nickerson recalls his father and his brothers and the origins of their prosperous fishing enterprise, Nickerson Bros., known internationally. He presents the personalities and character of his father and his uncles in amusing and moving anecdotes from their own boyhoods and their contribution to the fisheries. Their friends and associates - how they worked and relaxed together, are recalled in a most entertaining and unforgettable fashion. He presents the tragedy that followed "one hook, one fish" fishing and the rape of the ocean beds by the efficient "draggers". It all took place from the end of the nineteenth century to close to the end of the twentieth century. These unusual and brave men are nearly all gone. They must be remembered!” - from the dj.

Very good in crisp dust jacket. Signed, with inscription, by Nickerson on the title page. 45.00

"In 1912 , Jack Haney, a 23-year-old mechanic with the Reo Motor Car Comany of St. Catharines, Ontario, setout in a 1912 Reo Special touring car with the English writer Thomas Wilby . Their aim was to be the first to drive a car from the Atlantic to the Pacific entirely within Canada. Lorne Findlay, a retired mechanic from Vancouver, and John Nicol, a writer from Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, recreated that historic trip 85 years later, from August 27 until October 18, 1997. The All-Red Route is an account of both trips: the untold story of the frirstattempt to find a motor route across a barely tamed and largely uninhabite d country, and the recreation of that hisotoric adventure, in the Reo, staying in the same towns on the same nights, even in some of the same hotels. Greeted by vintage car clubs at every town along the way, the Reo proved tobe a magnet for an engaging array of characters, both in 1912 and at centu ry's end. The country, oft course, had changed dramatically in 85 yean, duein no small measure to one of last century's greatest inventions - the car . This compelling trip is not only a celebration of the automobile, but also an examination of its effects on our cities and our lives. The All-Red Route provides a delightful travel and history guide to Canada as it was and is.. " - from the dj. Chapter 1. Converging on Halifax.

Index. 8vo, illustrated tan card covers. “This volume is a primer on Nicholas of Cusa [1401-1464], one of the most illustrious figures of the fifteenth century, who wrote on everything from papal politics to interrelieious dialogue. He was a man whose imagination spanned the late Middle Ages and theRenaissance to point the way to modernity. Trained as a canonist, Nicholas of Cusa first made his mark in political thought. Later he became a bishop , a papal legate, a cardinal, and an original philosopher and theologian. His ideas of learned ignorance and the coincidence of opposites still attract attention today across a wide variety of disciplines: church history, political theory, interfaith matters, philosophy, theology, mysticism, spirituality, humanism, cosmology, and mathematics.” - from the back cover.

Sir Harold George Nicolson KCVO, CMG (b. November 21, 1886, Tehran, Persian Empire – d. May 1,1968, Sissinghurst Castle, Kent).

“Mr. Harold Nicolson's volume of essays ranges in topic from Christmas trees to English cant and from Lord Byron's valet to the differences between English and American humour. The son of one of England's ambassadors at the Russian Imperial Court, the author has travelled much and met most of the great men of our day. His recollection of Lord Balfour in Paris, his meeting in Teheran with the 'Man who knew Everybody' including Pierpoint Morgan, Oscar Wilde and André Gide , are some of the pearls in this delightful book. Best of all perhaps are his reminiscences of Edwardian England in which his family played so active a part. 'These twenty-six essays,' writes Time and Tide, 'are exquisitely right as well as felicitous, urbane, pointed and deliciously humorous.” - from the dj.

And, amateur or professional, he can enjoy that same sense of pride in a finished job, well done to a high professional standard.
"Construction is traced through each stage from start to finish for boats ranging in size from a small cruiser to an impressive 25-metre yacht - what to look for when buying the hull, right through to the finished boat, fully fitted-out and ready to put to sea. Though based on fibreglass, the techniques described here apply equally to wood, steel, aluminium, and ferro-cement boats." from the dj.

An Atlantic Council Policy Study. "The strategic situation of the United States and the entire Western Alliance has changed radically -- not only in terms of nuclear parity betweenthe two superpowers, but also in terms of an aggressive, dynamic expansion of Soviet naval capabilities paralleled by a reduction in Western, and esp ecially U.S., naval strength. Related to this is the rapidly increasing national reliance on oil iomports, which are necessary to maintain the vigor of the economy and the reactive capacity of the military establishments. These facts foremd the backdrop for the group of experts who met to prepare a broad assessment of the future security of the seas for vital peacetime, crisis, and wartime uses. Chaired by Paul Nitze and directed by Leonard Sullivan, Jr., this group traced the evolution of Soviet and U.S. Naval forces, merchant marines, and overseas bases, evaluated the current maritime balance, and looked at the relative strengths and interdependence of Western Alliance and Communist Bloc economies. The group also assessed the growing significance of the smaller Third World navies and studied regional naval forceallocations and shipping requirements, as weell as possible crises and war time missions in all major naval theatres under both conventional and nuclear war conditions." - from the dj.
