His works are treasured in every national public gallery collection, and in hundred of private collections. It is to bring together a magnificent cross-section from these collections that this volume has been designed. It includes representative major canvases,… Read more

"The first Hamilton Water Works system was built about 120 years ago (at time of printing) to supply the citizens of an ambitious city with sufficient clean water.

The pumping machinery, erected by Keefer, Gartshore, and McFarlane was among the finest of its day and still exists in nearly original condition in a beautiful stone building. This book tells the story of the intrigues, personalities, and problems involved in the construction of this outstanding monument to the industrial growth of Canada."

With great and poetic delicacy and honesty, he tells the story of young Serge Mouret, Vicar of Artaud in Southern France, the victim of a conflict between a morality that has made sex evil and a natural impulse to love, purely and utterly, a young girl."

Description:
Melbourne: Gold Star, 1972. 143 pp, 8 5/8" H. Profusely illustrated with colour photographs. "Alan Marshall is called 'Gurawilla' or 'Song maker' by the natives of Arnhem Land. He and Sreten Bozic have studied the few remaining nomadic aboriginal tribes in Australia and have come to love and admire their culture. This book is the result of their knowledge of, and respect for, a race which had and still has vastly different - and perhaps superior - ideals from those of the white invaders who commandeered their lives and land. For, until the advent of the white man, the Aboriginals lived in complete accord with nature. Australian tribal society was uniquely a-materialistic and egalitarian, and was characterized by a rich ceremonial culture and religious life. It emphasised mystical communion with the environment rather than individual achievement and the glorification of human prowess. Human life was always considered to be part of the natural cycle and the happiness… Read more

Description:
Berkeley: University of California Press, 1996. 244 pp, 8vo (9" H). "What does it mean to worship beings that one believes are completely indifferent to, and entirely beyond the reach of, any form of worship whatsoever? What are the implications of such a relationship with sacred beings for the religious life of a community? Using these questions as his point of departure, Babb explores the ritual culture of image-worshiping Svetambar Jains. Jainism is, aside from Buddhism, the only surviving example of India's ancient non-Vedic religious traditions. It is known and celebrated for its systematic practice of non-violence and for the rigor of the asceticism it promotes. 'Absent Lords' sheds light on a little-known religious tradition and demonstrates that divine 'absence' can be as rich as divine 'presence' in its possibilities for informing a religious response to the cosmos." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light… Read more

Lester & Orpen Dennys, (Toronto, 1982), Ist Canadian edition. 262 pp, 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. "...set against the gigantic canvas of the air battles of World War II. (The) protagonist is Ernst Brehme, a fighter pilot serving with the Luftwaffe. But Brehme is no ordinary flyer. He possesses the one-in-a-million combination of qualities that makes him the complete master of his profession - one of the top-scoring pilots of all time - a national hero, idolized, adored. Like so many of his contemporaries, however, Ernst Brehme knows infinitely more about the business of death than about life. Young and naive, he falls deeply in love with a French Jewess several years his senior. Their ill-starred romance is a central theme of this tense, totally gripping adventure..." Dust jacket has very light edge wear, light rubbing, one small closed tear. VG+/VG.

Toronto: Eastendbooks, 2007. 170 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H), pictorial boards - no dust jacket (as issued). Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper. B&w photographs, reproductions. "It originated with an entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to succeed in the new world. It grew from an innate love of roses, their beauty, their scent and their challenge. It was tempered with a serendipitous meeting of two different business approaches. It forged the largest and most successful cut flower operation of its time. It expanded over the course of one hundred years from a solitary greenhouse to over forty acres under glass and then, within a span of ten years, it disappeared without a trace. It was the Dale Estate. (This) is a story of a family, of pride and ambition, of soaring dreams and unbridled success, and of security and stability for Brampton, a small Ontario town that grew to be recognized internationally as 'The Flower Town of Canada'. It is the story of the rise… Read more

"This book is based on the unpublished and private memoirs of Captain Trevor Whitla Bridges, late of the Canadian and British Merchant navies, and also of the British Royal Navy Reserve and the Royal Canadian Navy Reserve, in which he held the rank of Lieutenant-Commander. The narrative proper is always in the first person singular, as this closely follows the original text, but in my periodic comments in sidebars on aspects of his career or circumstance of which he was a part, I have invariably chosen to give him his appropriate navy or merchant navy rank at the time." From the Introduction. Contents: Introduction; An Anglo-Canadian Childhood; Training Ship Worcester; The Barque Invermay of Aberdeen; Bound for Vancouver; The Nitrate Coast; British India; Goodbye B.I.; Working for a Master's Ticket; Return to the Royal Line; 1914: "The Northern Patrol", Monitors and… Read more
