16 Allsop, Kenneth In the Country
4th impression hc GOOD GOOD 
Hc/Dj At the end of the 1960s, Kenneth Allsop, a famous television presenter and literary man-about-town, left London and settled amid the sunken lanes, ancient forests and chalk streams of west Dorset. He was at his very happiest here. He thought it the loveliest place on earth, and for three years he devoted a weekly newspaper column to his day-to-day life at the mill, brimming with humour and delight for the wildlife which shared his home. In the Country is not rustic or romantic. It is never unrealistic about agricultural modernisation and social change in the countryside. Yet, steeped with a deep sense of the past, Kenneth Allsop’s writing speaks in defence of the natural world and stands firmly against the unchecked exploitation of the land.

32 Bonnie Devine (Author), Duke Redbird (Author), Robert Houle (Author) The Drawings and Paintings of Daphne Odjig
0888848404 softcover as new 
The discovery, in the 1950s, of the ancient iconography of the Algonkian people was a lightning rod for the collective Aboriginal conscience in Canada. When Daphne Odjig and Norval Morrisseau began to produce paintings in the 1960s depicting the Algonkian legends they were heralded as the heirs of that ancient lineage. As Morrisseau pursued his characteristic iconic style, Odjig developed a varied and experimental graphic and narrative practice. Comparisons have been drawn between her work and cubism, surrealism and abstract-expressionism. Yet, while her aesthetic investigations place her outside any one stylistic genre, her themes and imagery remain distinctly Aboriginal. The drawings and paintings presented here represent forty-four years of Daphne Odjig's artistic production and include examples of her legend paintings, history murals, erotica, abstractions and landscapes. As a group, these works articulate the breadth of Odjig's visual engagement with her personal and cultural history. As a linear narrative, they trace the remarkable development of the artist from initial experimentation to mature mastery of her media. Daphne Odjig has exhibited worldwide and is a 2007 recipient of the Governor General's Award in Visual Arts, the country's highest honour.

43 Burke, Thomas The Golden Gong
Ash Tree Press 1553100204 hc good 
THE GOLDEN GONG AND OTHER NIGHT PIECES by Thomas Burke edited with an Introduction by Jessica Amanda Salmonson My encounters in this city of all souls have been amusing, stimulating, ludicrous, beautiful, disturbing, and queer.' Thus wrote Thomas Burke (1886–1945), referring to the people, places, and things of London; or, more specifically, the area of London known as Limehouse, which in Burke's youth was the haunt of sailors, dock-workers, and Chinese immigrants. It was a world of sights and sounds that entranced and enthralled the young boy, who would wander at will through its crowded streets, welcomed by the inhabitants and drinking in their language, customs, and traditions. In 1916 he published Limehouse Nights, a collection of tales based on his experiences in the district; but he was saddened to find that the world of which he had written had already, for the most part, disappeared. Burke was always fascinated by the dark underside of life, and this found expression in many of his tales, which feature the uncanny, the outré, and the grotesque. In The Golden Gong, Jessica Amanda Salmonson has gathered together twenty-one of Burke’s tales of the weird and the supernatural, including such classics as 'The Hands of Mr Ottermole' and 'The Hollow Man'. Also included is a reminiscence by publisher Grant Richards, who recognised the brilliance of Limehouse Nights after it had been turned down by several other publishers; and in an extensive introduction, Salmonson looks at the colourful, and sometimes contradictory, life of Thomas Burke. CONTENTS: 'The Tenderly Sadistic Vision of Thomas Burke' by Jessica Amanda Salmonson; 'The Golden Gong'; 'The Scarlet Shoes'; 'The Bird'; 'The Tablets of the House of Li'; 'White Wings'; 'The Hands of Mr Ottermole'; 'The Yellow Imps'; 'Desirable Villa'; 'The Secret of Francesco Shedd'; 'Miracle in Suburbia'; 'Uncle Ezekiel's Long Sight'; 'The Horrible God'; 'Johnson Looked Back'; 'The Black Courtyard'; 'The Gracious Ghosts'; 'The Man Who Lost His Head'; 'The Lonely Inn'; 'Events at Wayless-Wagtail'; 'The Bloomsbury Wonder'; 'The Hollow Man'; Afterword: Grant Richards on Thomas Burke. Wraparound Jacket Painting by Paul Lowe. Limited to 600 copies. ISBN: 1-55310-020-4; xxxix + 195pp Published 30 March 2001

57 Czajkowski, Chris Snowshoes & Spotted Dick : Letters from a Wilderness Dweller
1550172794 paperback inscribed to prev owner
Chris Czajkowski chose to build her life and small ecotourism business on the shore of a high-altitude lake near the southern tip of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park in British Columbia. It is a formidable landscape of lake-dotted alpine plateaus abutting the glacier-swathed backbone of the central Coast Range. Snowshoes and Spotted Dick describes Czajkowski’s experiences as she builds her fourth cabin in the wilderness with hand tools, two chainsaws, an Alaskan Mill and some helpful friends. One of her helpers is Nick Berwian, a quiet but literary young German who corresponds with Czajkowski long after his return home. In these fascinating letters to Berwian, Czajkowski details her often solitary life—how she breaks trails by snowshoe with her two pack dogs, encounters grizzly bears, builds a custom stone oven and learns how to use it to bake bread and serves the enigmatic spotted dick to her visitors. The letters also chronicle Czajkowski’s challenges and triumphs as she tries to finish her cabin. Food and building supplies must be flown in and Czajkowski must hike more than 30 kilometres to the nearest road to lead guiding trips and to attend craft fairs and book promotions to supplement her income. Lyrically written, Snowshoes and Spotted Dick is a spellbinding and uplifting story that provides a close look at a way of life that most of us only dream about, one that cleaves to nature with beauty, resilience and independence.

89 Heartfield, James Aborigines' Protection Society: Humanitarian Imperialism in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Canada, South Africa, and the Congo, 1836-1909
0199327408 
For more than seventy years, the Aborigines' Protection Society, a select group of the great and the good, fought for the natives of the British Empire and against the tide of white supremacy to defend the interests of aboriginal peoples everywhere. Active on four continents, the Society brought the Zulu King Cetshwayo to meet Queen Victoria, and Maori rebels to the Lord Mayor's banqueting hall. The Society's supporters were denounced by senior British Army officers and white settlers as Zulu-lovers, 'so-called friends of the Aborigines', and even traitors. The book tells the story of the three-cornered fight among the Colonial Office, the settlers and the natives that shaped the Empire and the pivotal role that the Society played, persuading the authorities to limit settlers' claims in the name of native interests. Against expectations, the policy of native protection turned out to be one of the most important reasons for the growth of Imperial rule. James Heartfield's comparative study of native protection policies in Southern Africa, the Congo, New Zealand, Fiji, Australia, and Canada explains how those who held the best of intentions ended up unwittingly championing further colonisation. Pointing to the wreckage of humanitarian imperialism today, Heartfield sets out to understand its roots in the beliefs and practices of its nineteenth-century equivalents.

100 Jean-Pierre Léaud (Actor), Claude Jade (Actor), François Truffaut (Director, Writer) The Adventures of Antoine Doinel [5 Discs] [Import] including book
B00008H2GR 
5 dvd set plus booklet Box is made to look like an old suitcase it is not all worn. Product Description The release of François Truffaut’s The 400 Blows (Les Quatre cents coups) in 1959 shook world cinema to its foundations. The now-classic portrait of troubled adolescence introduced a major new director in the cinematic landscape and was an inaugural gesture of the revolutionary French New Wave. But The 400 Blows did not only introduce the world to its precocious director—it also unveiled his indelible creation: Antoine Doinel. Initially patterned closely after Truffaut himself, the Doinel character (played by the irrepressible and iconic Jean-Pierre Léaud) reappeared in four subsequent films that knowingly portrayed his myriad frustrations and romantic entanglements from his stormy teens through marriage, children, divorce, and adulthood. With The Adventures of Antoine Doinel, Criterion is proud to present Truffaut’s celebrated saga in its entirety: the feature films The 400 Blows, Stolen Kisses, Bed and Board, and Love on the Run, and the 1962 short subject, Antoine and Colette, in a special edition five-disc box set.
