Description:
Mosaic, (Oakville, Ontario, 2001). 166 pp, 8vo, soft cover. B&w photos. "Across the broad expanse of Canada's North there are few physical reminders of the rich history of the land and its people. (This book) examines three rare cases where heritage structures have withstood the ravages of time and an unforgiving climate. York Factory was the key staging area of the Hudson's Bay Company for over two hundred years. From its construction in 1830, the 'Depot' warehouse held a wealth of trade goods that lured the trappers of the Northwest. Herschel Island, off the north coast of the Yukon, became the unlikely winter home to hundreds of Yankee whalers in the 1890s. The buildings of this abandoned settlement still remain. The Mid-Canada Line was an electronic Cold War bastion that stretched the length of Canada's 55th parallel. This national project stood against American ambition to the south and the Soviet threat from the north." Interior - clean and tight with… Read more

Description:
Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 2000. 229 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w illustrations. "This ground-breaking study explores the treatment of the boundaries between poetry and history in three epic literary works: Spenser's 'Faerie Queene', Samuel Daniel's 'Civil Wars', and Michael Drayton's 'Poly-Olbion'. David Galbraith argues that each of the three national poems enters into a dialogue with classical and more contemporary predecessors and that this relationship has profound implications for understanding the English Renaissance. He explores the importance for each poem of various aspects of the relationships between England and Rome and the significance of the recurring spatial metaphors by which the territories of poetry and history are constituted, negotiated, and traversed. By presenting historically and theoretically inflected readings of the poems, Galbraith gives new interpretation to important problems of allegory and poetic… Read more

Description:
Toronto: Macmillan of Canada, 1976. 232 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w illustrations, map. "For forty years the 'Little Emperor', Sir George Simpson, ruled a domain that stretched from Hudson Bay to the Pacific and the Arctic, wielding power a feudal king might have envied. An illegitimate child, raised by his father's family in Scotland, Simpson caught the eye of Andrew Colvile of the Hudson's Bay Company. Simpson was first sent to North America in 1820, that last year of uneasy rivalry before the North West and Hudson's Bay companies united. (He) rose rapidly in the Company's service; in an era of primitive communication he was given a great deal of latitude by his employers, and he quickly demonstrated that they could rely on his judgement. Ruthless and domineering in both public and private life, he made many enemies, but his undoubted business talents won wide admiration in Canada and in England. In his later years Simpson was increasingly involved in the business… Read more

"Undoubtedly the most cataclysmic military struggle of the late nineteenth century, the American Civil War spanned four bloody years of fighting, in which over 620,000 American soldiers and sailors lost their lives. From its outbreak at Fort Sumter, North Carolina in April 1861 until its conclusion at the Appomattox Court House, more than 10,000 battles, engagements and skirmishes were recorded across the length and breadth of America.

Description:
Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1997. 283 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w photographs, maps/battle plans, reproductions. "In the spring of 1864, in the vast scrub forest that spread south from Virginia's Rapidan and Rappahannock Rivers, Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee met in battle for the first time. The Wilderness campaign of May 5-6 initiated an epic confrontation between these two commanders - one that would finally end, eleven months later, with Lee's surrender at Appomattox. The contributors to this volume bring modern scholarship and fresh insight to bear on the issues and leaders of the Wilderness campaign. Their essays explore the campaign's background, for example, by training an often-revisionist lens on expectations among civilians in the North and South, morale among officers and soldiers in both armies, and the strategic plans of Lee and Grant. Other essays assess the shaky performance of Union cavalry leaders Philip H. Sheridan and James… Read more

New York: Sarpedon, 1995. 206 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs, reproductions, maps/battle plans. "It is not often realized that in Brooklyn, New York, for a few tense hours in 1776, the fate of the entire United States hung by a thread. An American defeat, the Battle of Brooklyn has been all but neglected in our collective memory for what it earned with the blood of its participants - honored status as one of history's great battles. Besides being the largest clash of the Revolution, in terms of both troops and casualties, the action at Brooklyn (sometimes called 'The Battle of Long Island') brought the fledgling American republic to the brink of disaster. At the height of the fighting, only the valiant sacrifice of one regiment - the Marylanders - staved off a catastrophe. The British army, meanwhile, executed a three-pronged surprise assault with admirable professionalism. The wilds of Brooklyn became a killing ground for the British and Hessian troops who were… Read more
