1 CARTER, Dyson. Fatherless Sons. A novel. Special Advance Edition, hardcover, in dustjacket, signed.
Progress Books, Toronto, 1955, 
CARTER, Dyson. Fatherless Sons. A novel. Toronto: Progress Books, (July) 1955. First Canadian Edition. Special Advance Edition. Pp. (6),7-480. 8vo, decorated white cloth, red lettering to spine. Laugher, p. 93, Watters p.259."This book is one of a Special Advance Edition, of which only 320 copies h ave been printed." Herbert Dyson Carter, b. February 2, 1910, Saint John, NB. "'Fatherless Sons' was the first of his serious fictions to use an explicitly Canadian setting, and attempted to convey the political and personal experience of working-class Canadians in the early years of the Cold War. As the verbal echo in its title suggests, 'Fatherless Sons' may have been partly inspired by the Communist reaction against Hugh MacLennan's popular novel 'Each Man's Son' (1951). A reviewer in the Canadian Tribune complained that MacLennan ignored the poverty and strife-ridden labour conditions of industrial Cape Breton to concentrate on a sentimental and pseudopsychological scrutiny of the main character, 'Fatherless Sons', by contrast, portraysworking-class struggles for survival against capitalist exploitation and m ilitarism." - from James Doyle's article "Science, Literature and Revolution: The Life and Writings of Dyson Carter", pp. 19-20, from Left History, Vol. 5, No. 2. "You'll read in this book the story of a headstrong young miner, and the courageous woman whose love he never lost. This man's family, for genearations, has been shadowed by a terrible curse... the sons have never known their fathers. Came the day when Dave Nelson returned from war, to seek his love again, resolved to defy his family's fate. But life plunged him and his beloved into one of the strangest, most pathetic and tormenting situations that ever confronted two loves. 'Fatherless Sons' takes you farrbeyond one family and one town. It sweeps you across our magnificent count ry, into the lives of a host of Canadians, youthful and aged, the brave andthe defeated." - from the dustjacket. Small nick mid-spine (affecting "RT" in Carter's last name), a couple of small creases and nicks to first two l eaves, else a very good copy in lightly nicked, faintly spine-sunned, unclipped dustjacket. Signed without inscription by Dyson Carter inside front cover. 125.00

Herbert Dyson Carter was born in Saint John, February 2, 1910.He was living in Saint Boniface, Manitoba at the time of publication. "In the late 1930s Carter also began a scholarlywork of historical geography which urged the development of Hudson Bay as a mercantile seaport for the Canadian wheat-farming regions, and as a base of naval defense against a possible invasion of North America. Sea of Destiny (1940) was very pro-Russian, drawing a comparison between the USSR's development of its Arctic and Canada's neglect of its own northern territories. It was also anti-German, suggesting that Nazi submarines and battleships might well exploit the Bay as a major point of vulnerability in North American defenses. Reviewers were impressed by this knowledgeable introduction to a neglected feature of North American history and geography - although the isolationist New York Times reviewer dismissed Carter's "alarmist" prophecies that the European war might be carried into the Arctic." - James Doyle. 1.
