However, as one who has researched this subject in depth during the past six years, I will say it is the most definitive and complete manual know to me at this time.

Description:
Winnipeg: University of Manitoba , 1986. 635 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. " 'There is perhaps no figure in the history of medicine in Manitoba whose influence has been greater than that exerted by Dr. Paul H.T. Thorlakson - 'Doctor Thor' as he is affectionately known. There are of course many whose contributions in particular spheres were unsurpassed, but none whose vision was broader; none whose grasp of the import of social developments for medical practice was firmer; none whose ability to transform grand designs into reality was greater. The story of the life and career of Dr. Thor reveals much of the drive, tenacity and dynamism that animated this remarkable man; but for each of us whose life has been touched in some special way by him (this book) will bring to mind many personal recollections of the force of this personality'."

Atglen, PA: Schiffer, 2000. 160 pp, 11 1/4" H. Marbled-pattern endpapers, color and b&w photographs, floor plans. This book "is for everyone interested in America's early Colonial homes but it is especially for those hoping to build or remodel an attractive, livable, comfortable and reasonably authentic Saltbox or Cape. (It) gives the six best ways to do this. But for you to do it in the charming tradition of our ancestors, you must first have a fairly complete understanding and appreciation of the original Saltboxes and Capes. You should know how they have changed and developed over the years. Despite the distinctive design and great age of the Saltbox, or Catslide, house - it was first built in America in about 1650 and goes back three centuries before that in England - this is the first book ever to discuss it fully. The equally old Cape Cod house is covered in the same way. (Approximately 140 houses are featured), half saltboxes, half Capes. Half are antique, half have been… Read more

Toronto: Doubleday Canada, 1979. 303 pp, 8 3/8" H. Map endpapers, b&w photographs. Inscribed on title page: "To Mr. Walter Loudon / an old Nor'Wester / Robert Stewart". "Young Sam Steele joined the North-West Mounted Police at its founding in the spring of 1873. His physical strength, skill with a horse, and determined character made him an ideal recruit for the fledgling force faced with the task of policing an area the size of Western Europe. Those first Mounties, ill-equipped and undermanned as they were, managed to bring order to a vast frontier and made possible the preservation of the fragile Canadian confederation. As he rose through the ranks, (he) took part in the great and small events of the opening of the Canadian West. Whether dealing with the refugee Sioux Chief Sitting Bull or tracking down cattle rustlers and murderers - and then dispensing justice in a tent courtroom - Steele displayed a combination of bravery, commonsense, fairness, and ingenuity.… Read more

Description:
London: Salamander, 2001. 144 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H). Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w with photographs and reproductions. "Following decades of painstaking research, the author provides an intriguing, scholarly, yet highly readable history of these fascinating weapons and the men who made and fought with them. This wonderfully illustrated book displays in spectacular photographs, most of which are in colour and many of which have never been published before, the most important samurai weapons of all - various types of long and short swords, polearms, bows and arrows, and firearms - as well as the dramatic forms of head and body armour designed specifically for samurai-versus-samurai combat. The spirit of the samurai lives on today in the practitioners of iaido, kendo, and the other marital arts. Japanese swords in particular are still made today, using centuries-old techniques, and may be seen as another embodiment of the samurai ethic. Although they have no practical application… Read more

Description:
Oxford: Osprey, 2003. 224 pp, small 4to (10 1/4" H). Map endpapers, profusely illustrated with b&w and colour photographs, reproductions. "The world of the samurai - the legendary elite warrior cult of old Japan - has for too long been associated solely with military history. In this exciting new book, Stephen Turnbull, the world's leading authority on the samurai, goes beyond the battlefield to paint a picture of the samurai as they really were. Familiar topics such as the cult of suicide, ritualised revenge and the lore of the samurai sword are seen in the context of an all-encompassing warrior culture that was expressed through art and poetry as much as through violence. Using themed chapters, the book studies the samurai through their historical development and their relationship to the world around them - relationships that are shown to persist in Japan even today." Bump at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has wrinkling at bottom of spine, minor edge wrinkling at top edge..… Read more
