About this Item: ASEA ABOARD THE S.S. CHINA, 1909. Condition: Good. On offer is a sensational, original manuscript travel diary, providing a very detailed description of an eventful round-the-world cruise taken in 1909 hand written by a California man with a keen eye for observation and a gift for description. The 7 x 4 inch book has 200 pages or so and is a little more than half filled and commences June 14 to September 7th ending abruptly upon leaving Naples. The author, H.A. Sommer and his wife [Milly] left their home in Los Angeles and travelled by train to San Francisco where they spend some time touring. He comments on the ruins of City Hall and the Courthouse and the destruction caused by the great earthquake of 1906. 'We also viewed the Ruins of the City Hall and Courthouse from the last great Earthquake a horrible sight. Form this we can obtain a slight Idea of what the terrible destruction must have been.' [June 14] They then board the Steam Ship China for their journey to Asia. Their first major stop is Hawaii and his notes are very descriptive, ranging from Japanese warships in the harbor to architecture and the local people. 'The whole city of Honolulu is a Dreamland it lacks word to describe its climate is perfect all year round never above 84o and seldom below 70o. As we rode back and forward on the street we noticed every Residence large or small was surrounded by a large variety of flowers and trees.' [June 23] En route, there are two deaths, one described as a suicide by a crew member and another of a steerage passenger who died of illness. He describes the burial at sea. 'This morning we got up early to see the burial of the dead Japanese . no one appeared except Milly myself and another Gentleman, the corpse was sewed in the Canvas and heavy leaden weights attached to it resting on a board at the stroke of 4 bells (6 o'clock) the Captain appeared Bible in hand the first officer being already on deck. The Captain ordered the Engines to be stopped and he after every one present uncovered their heads proceeded to read out of the Bible. The two Quartermasters stepped forward took hold of the American flag which covered the dead body the pushed it forward, then a couple of Sailors lifted the rear End and the body slowly gliding forward dropped in the Sea and all was over. [June 29] He devotes a number of pages to their stop in Japan and his descriptions are rich in detail: A clear morning after breakfast we had our baggage taken ashore as our boat made fast we noticed some little Jap's- having red Caps on their heads looking much like dressed up monkeys they took hold of all baggage carried it to the customs house. [June 6] everything is very tiny small houses, People, Streets and Street Cars, narrow and crooked street what gives them an ancient appearance. Houses are built close together with tile roofs. People in general are quiet and modest. [p. 26]. Their voyage continues on via China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Ceylon, Egypt, Arabia and The Holy Land including Jerusalem, Jaffa. The same rich descriptions continue. The diary ends abruptly on Sept 7th as they are making passage from Naples to Genoa. There is no hint as to reason and the reader can only speculate. On the following pages (p 106-107) there is an entry by one Mitchell Jon Cremin dated Feb 24th, 1964. Context suggests this was a boy as he took it to his school. He said that he found the journal in an old house. Cremin says: He (meaning Sommer) rote about his wife wen she dide on the ship [p. 107] However, there is no way to verify this. For a historian, this is an outstanding collection of observations and descriptions of life in many parts of the world from a time long past. Whether a historian, a researcher into cultural differences or simply one who enjoys the rich tapestry of people and nations of that time that move across these pages, this journal is a gem. The journal is in good condition and all pages are intact. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Manuscript. Seller Inventory # 0007007

About this Item: PORT OF SYDNEY CAPE BRETON ISLAND SHEDIAC LEVIS, 1911. Condition: Good+. On offer is a sensational, original archive of journals [3], official Deck logs [3], 100+ letters of correspondence plus ephemera both personal and marine related including lists of passengers, personnel, letters of recommendation, letters from passengers etc. all handwritten or compiled by Captain John Henry Hubley born in 1884, a seasoned ship's master by the age of 20 no doubt having gained experience from his father who was also a ship's Captain. The group will provide a treasure trove for historians and researchers of Canadian steamship history and Canadian Government merchant marine commerce. The travel diaries run the gamut of sea lore from daily data of weather, position, calculations and narrative of events occurring as would on any voyage to the West Indies. Of the deck logs two [2] detail trips to Levis one though is different as it is labelled by hand "OUR QUEEN" then the published: DECK LOG BOOK SS Canadian Recruit from the Port of Sydney C.B. [Cape Breton] to Levis P.Q. [Province of Quebec] June 25th 1921 - August 12th 1921." We surmise a later hand penned the OUR QUEEN as they have used some of the book for pasting clippings regarding Queen Elizabeth II's visit to Prince Edward Island in 1964. However little data is lost as the clippings were tipped in at the top edge in most cases and the entries underneath visible. The entries are all signed L.H. Dicks Chief Officer under Captain Hubley. Another book is for the S.S. Canadian Warrior also in 1921 to Montreal. Lastly there is a smaller 8 x 10 inch log with contains some financial like receipts or fees paid but mostly letters from the Canadian Government Merchant Marine for promotions and other milestones following Hubley's career and appointments.

About this Item: NORTHEAST UNITED STATES, 1963. Condition: Good. On offer is a tremendous cache of letters, beautifully and artistically written, from and to Painter, critic, teacher, lecturer, writer, illustrator, Elena Maria de Hellebranth, who, along with her sister Bertha, gained a bit of local renown in their native Hungary, as well as in the Northeast United States, where they lived for many decades. All the letters are either from, or addressed towards, Elena’s friend and confidant, Irene Rice Pereira, a famous American abstract painter as well as a poet and philosopher. Irene Pereira has artworks displayed many museums in America, including the Whitney Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, and others. Elena would never achieve the level of fame and recognition as her friend Irene Pereira, or even her sister Bertha de Hillebranth. This cache of letters is a tremendously interesting exchange between two artists and friends in the 1960s. Many of the letters are not dated, but the ones that are are from 1963 to 1965. They deal with ideas about art, poetry, philosophy, God, and other topics of the humanities. Elena heaps praise onto Irene in almost all her letters to her, repeatedly calling her a genius, ending letters, "God bless you and your art," and assuring Irene that her art and poetry will be forever be acclaimed. It seems that both Elena and Irene are very religious (or at least God-loving) women, as their letters are filled with allusions to Christianity and the divine quality of art. The cache contains a total of 18 letters, two telegrams, and one postcard. All but one of the letters is typed, and most pen marks for punctuation as well as a the letter’s signature. Only two of the letters are from Irene Rice Pereira back to Elena. One of these letters contains a postcard of an artwork by Irene. The rest of the letters, telegrams and postcard are from Elena to Irene. The letters from Irene to Elena are strongly spiritual, and also show a strong sense of paranoia. In one letter, dated March 19th, 1964, Irene writes: "I now know and I am sure of it, that it i Catholicism that is the great force of the future, possessing all the elemental, fundamental attributes of the spiritual forces for the future form of consciousness. Also it is Catholicism that heroically endeavors to save the Form of Man against that discrepancies of the finite and infinite in Greek thought. It is only Catholicism that has the theological potentiality for the mind stabilizing the spiritual forces for the infinite abundance of reality. It would give me great hope for the future if this work could find its spiritual home.My dear, dear Elena and Bertha, write me. I am very careful about my telephone because the line is tapped. This is because the tastemakers in art want to maintain the status quo; that is, they propose the styles for mass culture, and the spiritual forces in this work runs counter to their plans." From Elena to Irene: "Dearest Irene, Always it is good to hear your voice: no matter how, but it is awe inspiring to be in touch with genius. --- This is praying that you are better. It is magnanimous of you to want to help in giving my sister Bertha the prize for her tempera and india ink study to a stained glass window. The title is "A Song was Born: The Magnificat", and the approximate size is 22 X 25 outside. The Gospel tells us that Mary the Mother of God visited her cousin Elizabeth, when Mary expected her Child, - it may have been in the third month of her pregnancy about end of June (the Immaculate Conception occurred on the 25th of Mar.) Then, Elizabeth joyous exclamation brought forth the Virgin Mary the ecstatical: "Magnificat song, praising God!.I am most anxious to hear your verdict about her art. Bertha has a number of stained glass windows in private collections, and one at the Convent of the Visitation on City Line. All my love to you as ever, and you may call me an optimist, but I fervently believe and KNOW that your theory. Manuscript. Seller Inventory # 0009103

About this Item: Committee on Canadian Labour History, 1988. Soft cover. Condition: Good. First Edition. Trade paperback edition, spine crease with minor edge fraying, sunning to spine. signed and inscribed by Jack Scott himself, " to Michael . ", on the title page. below his inscription is another why by Bryan Palmer, the editor. following is copied brom BC Bookworld Jack Scott (1910-2000) was once described in Weekend magazine as the most radical man in Canada. For many years he was a stalwart journalistic conscience in British Columbia's radical left wing politics. He is not to be confused with Vancouver Sun editor and columnist Jack Scott (1915-1980). Born in Ireland in 1910, Jack Scott came to Quebec City in May of 1927 from Belfast on a Cunard liner, the SS Montcalm, with almost no money, having grown up as a Methodist, neither ardently Protestant or Catholic. After working on various labouring jobs, he was attracted to the "oddballs" of the Communist Party of Canada when he was still politically naive. In Toronto he got to know the book collector, Robert S. Kenny, and commenced a process of self-education and apprenticeship to activism. He became a Workers Unity League organizer in Sarnia, London, Brantford, Kitchener and other western Ontario towns. He met and later married Ann Walters, his first wife, of Finnish descent. He helped organize the Ontario Hunger March from Windsor and the On to Ottawa trek in Regina in 1935. At only 114 pounds, he was initially rejected by the Canadian Army in 1939, but his persistence eventually allowed him to volunteer. Scott was awarded the French Croix de Guerre. After the war his marriage came apart and Scott felt increasingly stifled by Communist Party politics in Toronto. He took some union work in Yellowknife and Trail, gravitating towards Vancouver in the 1950s. He remarried Hilda Scott, who already had a daughter from a previous relationship. His second wife suffered a prolonged illness. The Communist Party rejected him in 1962 due to his role within the party opposing what he saw as a drift away from revolutionary Marxist-Leninist principles. Jack Scott's series of articles that appeared from May 28 to June 7, 1963 were published as Jack Scott Takes A Second Look At Cuba (Toronto: Fair Play for Cuba Committee, Amis du Peuple Cubain, 1963). Scott was adamantly opposed to allowing Canadian trade unions to be controlled by larger, U.S.-based unions. He was officially expelled from the Communist Party on August 11, 1964. In response, Jack Scott became a founder of the Vancouver-based Progressive Workers Movement. He also increasingly became involved in the Canada-China Friendship Association. By 1973 he was profiled in a Weekend Magazine article as "the most radical man in Canada." The following is copied from BC Bookworld In the 1970s Jack Scott became increasingly active as an author, contributing to Gary Teeple¿s edited book, Capitalism and the National Question in Canada (University of Toronto Press, 1972), and becoming involved with Lanny Beckman's New Star Books imprint. He is best remembered for Sweat and Struggle: Working Class Struggles in Canada (New Star 1974) but he also wrote Plunderbund and Proletariat: A History of the IWW in British Columbia (New Star, 1975). He made frequent trips to China in the Seventies during one of which, in 1974, his wife Hilda died. Her ashes were buried at Peking¿s cemetery of the revolutionary martyrs. In the 1980s Jack Scott was immersed in the B.C. Solidarity movement that protested the economic strictures on the working class from Bill Bennett's Social Credit government. He worked at the cooperative left wing bookstore, Spartacus Books, but he was no longer a firebrand in the 1980s so much as he was a distinguished elder in the dwindling tribe of Marxist-Leninists of B.C. After 70 years of social activism, he died of a heart attack in 2000, at age 90. Inscribed & Signed By Author. Seller Inventory # 161203

About this Item: Paris, France, 1782. Manuscript. Condition: Very Fine. On June 13th, 1782, 'Docteur rege de la Faculte de Medecine en L'Universite de Paris, ancien Proffesseur de les Ecoles.' Etienne Pourfour-de-Petit, first hired by the University in 1732, writes the Faculty beseeching that the Faculty honor and uphold his 1760 retirement 'edict'. Superbly interesting document that highlights the struggles of the revolutionary period and transition of power. The Professor, obviously a monarchist and of the 'ancien regime' is faced with a new board made up of the rebels. Easily read is a certain disdain to the new Faculty members, his deep respect for the Monarch but also an embracing of the new revolutionary ideas. Biographical Notes: SIR THOMAS PHILLIPPS (1792-1872). Born in 1792, Sir Thomas Phillipps from childhood was obsessed with the idea of obtaining virtually anything written or printed on paper, including cartloads of documents from wastepaper merchants and the entire inventories of booksellers. "I wish to have one copy of every book in the world," he declared to a friend. He very nearly succeeded. His collection ultimately grew to more than 100,000 books and at least 60,000 manuscripts. As a result of his extravagant purchases, Sir Thomas was permanently on the verge of bankruptcy and was constantly pursued by creditors. So many books arrived at his house that it was impossible to unpack his acquisitions much less keep pace with them. Visiting scholars, driven to distraction, would spend days hunting for an elusive text in the dusty heaps that filled every room. Because Sir Thomas has a morbid dread of fire, most of his collection was housed in coffinlike boxes that could be carted away quickly. Visitors to Middle Hill were struck too, by the presence of numerous logs, a ploy he used to lure beetles away from his books. As Sir Thomas relentlessly pursued his passion, the house itself began to crumble and its floors started to sag under the cast weight of hundreds of tons of paper. His neglect of Middle Hill was partly deliberate, however. Sir Thomas's chief enemy in life, James Halliwell, had married his daughter against his wishes. It appears that Halliwell was, in Sir Thomas' eyes, the worst kind of criminal, a book thief who had stolen valuable works from university libraries and even from his father-in-law. Having no sons, Sir Thomas was unable to prevent Halliwell from inheriting his estate. To ensure that his detested heir would never receive anything of value, Sir Thomas's solution was to allow Middle Hill to fall unto complete disrepair. He even went so far as to chop down and sell for lumber the centuries-old oak trees that lined the majestic mile-long drive to his home. In 1863 Sir Thomas decided to move - in order to accommodate his books. With the aid of 160 men, 103 wagonloads of books and papers drawn by 230 horses, the books were lumbered from Middle Hill top their new estate in nearby Cheltenham. It is said that for years afterwards the countryside was littered with the remains of carts that had collapsed under the sheer weight of the Phillipps collection. Sir Thomas continues to add to his library until his death in 1872. After Sir Thomas's death, his immediate family had no room for his collection. So vast was the library that although individual items and large sections were sold privately or through numerous auction sales, the Phillipps collection is still being sold more than a century after the death of its owner. In the course of its sales, many treasures have come to light. As late as 1964, part of the long-lost and unique medieval manuscript of the Roman poet Ovid's Metamorphoses appeared and was subsequently reunited with its other half at Magdalen College, Oxford. Once destined for destruction as worthless wastepaper, this and many other priceless works were saved by the single-minded obsession of the greatest bibliomaniac of all time. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Autograph. Seller Inventory # 00TP08

Alexei Panshin originally published the major part of his Robert A Heinlein critique, Heinlein in Dimension (May/June 1965-March 1967; 1968), in Riverside Quarterly; other contributors included James Blish, Robert Bloch, Algis Budrys, Samuel R Delany, Philip José Farmer, Ursula K Le Guin, John T Sladek with verse, and Jack Williamson with an expansion of his PhD thesis H.G. Wells: Critic of Progress (August 1967-August 1969; 1973). Owing apparently to financial difficulties, Riverside Quarterly had a long hiatus after #22 (April 1974); issues were widely spaced from its 1977 revival to the final #35 (June 1995). Though irregular, this was one of the longest-running – as well as the most serious – of all fanzines; it was shortlisted three times for the Hugo." - Quote taken from The Encylopedia of Science Fiction.

Multimillionaire, press baron and entrepreneur extraordinaire, Max Aitken was, in his time, the most powerful Canadian on the world stage. He is the stuff of legend. The Canadian-born son of a Presbyterian minister, Aitken didn't start off as a tycoon. At age 20, he was flat broke, running a bowling alley in Canada. By age 32, he was living the high life in London as a multimillionaire, a knight and a member of the British parliament. Aitken eventually climbed to the heights of the British aristocracy--taking the title Lord Beaverbrook, befriending Winston Churchill and building the world's greatest newspaper empire. Not bad for a kid from New Castle, New Brunswick! Beaverbrook: The Various lives of Max Aitken paints a candid and intriguing portrait of this larger-than-life personality and delves into the controversy surrounding Beaverbrook's insatiable appetite for power, money and women." quoted from Canadian National Film Board description of their film on him.
