by Reynoldsfirst editionFirst edition. STATED: First Published in Great Britain 1980. Hard cover. Sheed & Ward, London, England (1980) New in new dust jacket. hard bound 236 pages It was a bloody time in English history. Bloody Mary was dead, Queen Elizabeth 1 was on the throne determined to revoke all Mary's ordinances supporting the Pope and Roman Catholic religion. Her Supremacy bill declared her supreme and made it clear the Pope had no authority in England. The Catholic Lords Bishop refused to take the oath and were put under constraint. Edmund Campion, formerly an Anglican, became a Jesuit missionary, was arrested, hanged, drawn, and quartered. His contemporary, also a Jesuit, fled to the Continent and was assigned the task of directing from abroad the Jesuit mission to England. He died at the English College in Rome.

The western nations exploited China in many ways; one of these was in the Treaty of Nanking (1842) by which the western nations controlled tariffs for the importation of goods into China. The book gives a fascinating account of the impact thereof and the winning back of autonomy. Book was originally published in 1938 in Hong Kong and Shanghai; I am offering a republication by Ch'eng-Wen in the Republic of China (Taipei) in 1966 (Statement in back of book. ) Book is in near tiptop condition and might be graded fine but has on fep a stamp of former graduate student at xxx university. 775 p.

Description:
Fine. No dust jacket. was issued. A never-read copy of the definitive book on the postal systems of BC and Vancouver Island I am not sure how to grade this book. It is that scarce first edition with the statement on prelims "Of this First Edition Five Hundred Copies have been Printed. This is No. 17" These low print runs are typical of publications by the archives in twenties and thirties. One run of a Vancouver book was as low as five copies. It also seems to have been the practice of author or archivist to have given some copies to local notables. This copy has turned up with a small collection of archive books: it has never been read-the signatures are not cut open. It is in the usual brown (is it linen? ) boards with bevelled edges. Page edges untrimmed. The grading is difficult because although never read, it has been on the recipient's shelf for almost ninety years and has at back two spots of missing color. One spot is pin-head size. One spot (2mm) spot on title page. The other is... Read more

Description:
Full title The Colonial Office List for 1866 comprising Historical and Statistical Information respecting the colonial dependencies of Great Britain. with an account of the services of the principal officers of the several colonial governments. The practice of issuing this list started in 1862, and a new publication appears every year. These very early issues had a fancy red somehat-limp front board with brilliant gilt title and crown and blind carving. The style is maintained throughout the series, but in later years, as the book became larger, a rigid board is used. My copy has no significant bumps and just the mildest scuff at bottom of spine. The huge fold-out coloured map at the front of the book, shows "The Empire," that at this stage had not fully expanded. The copy in the book I offer is FINE. 238 numbered pages plus ads for and samples of Harrison stationery. "Too-Late-For-Insertion" and "Omission" sheet tipped in. Massive detail on possessions, who's who in colonial governments, consulates.
