In November 2004 a nation wide vote by over one million Canadians selected Tommy Douglas as "The Greatest Canadian of all Time."Known as the 'Father of Medicare' - he launched it in Saskatchewan when he was premier of that province, first universal hospital insurance in 1947, then medicare in 1959. He has been described as, "the most influential politician never to be elected Prime Minister.Tommy Douglas made an invaluable contribution to political life," says Xavier Gélinas, Curator of Canadian Political History at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. "In total, he provided the impetus for about a hundred pieces of legislation, several of which can be said to have shaped the Canadian identity."In recognition of this immense contribution, in 1980 he was named a Companion of the Order of Canada.

        The Man Who Wrote Dracula & Two Bonus Items [hand-Written Letter & Bram Stoker's Calling Card]

      Michael Joseph, London 1975 - A biography of Bram Stoker, written by the great nephew of Bram Stoker. The original dustjacket accompanies this wonderful book. It has an image of Bram Stoker to the front panel, with enhanced spooky eyes that shine from the illustration. Jacket photo: Chris Yates. The dustjacket is in a very nice condition. With very minor creasing, mainly to the inner prelims front and rear. Little browning to the edges of the prelims also. Price is intact. Now housed in a removable plastic archival sleeve. Wine coloured boards with gold/gilt lettering to the spine. Boards are in a very good, clean condition. Front blank endpage is adhered to inner board [often done to strengthen the page block]. One small fox spot to the front endpage, and occasionally throughout the book. The full title page had a very small hole in it in the centre so I have adhered a photocopy of Bram Stoker's actual calling card over this, and the same on the rearside of that page, which is the copyright page. There are 14 illustrations between pages 96-97. The first is a full page plate of Bram Stoker, signed by him in 1884. It is a magnificent portrait of him as a younger man, taken while he was in New York! There is a picture of his wife Florence and their son Noel. There is a signed portrait of Bram Stoker's Grandfather: Tom Stoker. There is a drawing of Florence by Oscar Wilde., and another of her drawn by Edward Burne-Jones. There is a picture of henry Irving [Bram Stoker's great friend]. There is one of Ellen Terry with her dogs. There is one of the Lyceum Theatre. There is one of the ruins of Castle Erroll, intact in Stoker's day, at Cruden Bay, north of Aberdeen [Scotland], where he wrote 'Dracula'. One of the snowbound graveyard at Whitby, as Bram Stoker would have known it. There is a portrait of Vlad Dracula, alleged by some to have been the inspiration for Stoker's novel of Dracula. There is a scene from 'Dracula on film', one of the many portrayals by Christopher Lee, who kindly supplied this still for the book. [For once, the concept is close to Stoker's original, complete with the white moustache!]. The final plate is a full page plate of Bran Castle in Romania, where Vlad Dracula stayed and has now become a part of the 'Dracula Tour'. There are 240 pages in all which include an index to the rear. The pages are clean throughout apart from a very occasional fox spot. On the inner rear board is a photocopy of a letter that was hand-written by Bram Stoker on 30.11.97 [same year as dracula was first published]. The letter is headed: PROVINCIAL TOUR, 1897. The letter starts: Dear Sir, and there is a message in the middle but I cannot decipher what it says but it is signed by 'Bram Stoker' and the letter is dated 30.11.97. Seems to be for someone called 'BW Hartley'. It's a nice ending to the book. ----- POSTAGE OPTIONS: Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days. --- If you select 'Priority' as the postal option, you will get the fastest option.

        JR

      New York: Knopf. Mimeographed unbound galleys of the rough typed manuscript, 483 pages constituting approximately half of the book. Very good+ in printer's carton and box with typed label. An early state of this National Book Award winner, one of the great novels of our time.. New York, Knopf, [1975]. 4°. 483 pages. Kardcover Box. Mimeographed unbound galleys of the rough typed manuscript, 483 pages constituting approximately half of the book. Very good+ in printer's carton and box with typed label. An early state of this National Book Award winner, one of the great novels of our time. William Gaddis (December 29, 1922 ?- December 16, 1998) was an American novelist. He wrote five novels, two of which won National Book Awards. Gaddis was born in New York City to William Thomas Gaddis, who worked "on Wall Street and in politics," and Edith Gaddis, an executive for the New York Steam Corporation. When he was 3, his parents separated and Gaddis was subsequently raised by his mother in Massapequa, Long Island. At age 5 he was sent to Merricourt Boarding School in Berlin, Connecticut. He continued in private school until the eighth grade, after which he returned to Long Island to receive his diploma at Farmingdale High School in 1941. He entered Harvard in 1941 and famously wrote for the Harvard Lampoon (where he eventually served as President), but was asked to leave in 1944, supposedly because of a drunken brawl, though the circumstances are unclear. He worked as a fact checker for The New Yorker for two years, then spent five years traveling in Central America, the Caribbean, North Africa, and Paris, returning to the United States in 1951. His first novel, The Recognitions, appeared in 1955. A lengthy, complex, and allusive work, it had to wait to find its audience. Newspaper reviewers considered it overly intellectual, overwritten, and perhaps on the principle of omne ignotum per obscaenum ("all that is unknown appears obscene"), filthy. (The book was defended by Jack Green in a series of broadsheets blasting the critics; the series was collected later under the title Fire the Bastards!) Shortly after the publication of The Recognitions, Gaddis married his first wife, Patricia Black, who would give birth to his only children, Sarah (who has written a novel, Swallow Hard, inspired by her relationship with her father) and Matthew. Gaddis then turned to public relations work and the making of documentary films to support himself and his family. In this role he worked for Pfizer, Eastman Kodak, IBM, and the United States Army, among others. He also received a National Institute of Arts and Letters grant, a Rockefeller grant, and two National Endowment for the Arts grants, all of which helped him write his second novel. In 1975 he published J R, a work even more difficult than The Recognitions, told almost entirely in dialogue, where it is sometimes difficult to determine which character is speaking. Its eponymous protagonist, an 11-year-old, learns enough about the stock market from a class field trip to build a financial empire of his own. Critical opinion had caught up with him, and the book won the National Book Award for Fiction. His marriage to his second wife, Judith Thompson, dissolved shortly after J R was published. By the late 1970s, Gaddis had entered into a relationship with Muriel Oxenberg Murphy, and they lived together until the mid-1990s. Carpenter's Gothic (1985) offered a shorter and more accessible picture of Gaddis's sardonic worldview. Instead of struggling against misanthropy (as in The Recognitions) or reluctantly giving ground to it (as in JR), Carpenter's Gothic wallows in it. The continual litigation that was a theme in that book becomes the central theme and plot device in A Frolic of His Own (1994)—which earned him his second National Book Award and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction—where it seems that everyone is suing someone. There is even a Japanese car called the Sosumi. (Gaddis has never been afraid of the pun. There is a character in The Recognitions named Recktall Brown.) Gaddis died of prostate cancer on December 16, 1998, but not before creating his final work, Agape- Agape (the first word of the title is the Greek agape-, meaning divine, unconditional love), which was published in 2002, a novella in the form of the last words of a character similar but not identical to his creator. The Rush for Second Place, published at the same time, collected most of Gaddis's previously published nonfiction. After years of critical neglect, Gaddis is now often acknowledged as being one of the greatest of American post-war novelists. His influence is vast (although frequently subterranean): for example, postmodern authors such as Don DeLillo and Thomas Pynchon seem to have been influenced by Gaddis, as well as authors such as Joseph McElroy, William Gass, David Markson, Jonathan Franzen, and David Foster Wallace, who have all stated their admiration for Gaddis in general and The Recognitions in particular. His life and work are the subject of a comprehensive website, The Gaddis Annotations, which has been noted in at least one academic journal as a superior example of scholarship using new media resources. Gaddis's papers are collected at Washington University in St. Louis. (Wikipedia)

        UGLY RUMOURS

      George Allen & Unwin,, London 1975 - Wolff, Tobias. UGLY RUMOURS. London: George Allen & Unwin, 1975. Octavo, original black cloth, original dust jacket. First edition, one of reportedly less than 1000 copies printed. Wolff's first novel concerns a Special Forces lieutenant and a sergeant serving as advisors to a Vietnamese Infantry Division. Ugly Rumours was never published in the United States and Wolff has refused to list it among his "previous publications." His 1994 memoir, In Pharoah's Army, alludes somewhat derisively to a novel he was writing while serving in Vietnam-presumably Ugly Rumours. A superior fine/fine example of this important novel. One of the most difficult Viet Nam titles to acquire especially in condition. A beautiful copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Light toning, else very good in unclipped jacket, almost imperceptibly tanned due to the laminate having gone "off". First Edition. Published only in Britain, the author's first novel, indeed his first book, but subsequently repudiated, never reprinted and removed from his list of publications. Based on his experiences in Vietnam and written under the influence of Pynchon Ugly Rumours is a satirical tale of life "up country". "I loved it until the moment I read it as a book. When I received the bound copies, I sat down with great pleasure to read this book that I had written and slaved over for a couple of years, and I couldn't stand it.

        A Model of the World`s First Domestic Satellite: ANIK 1

      [Made by Hughes Aircraft Company, 1975. 1st Edition. Wooden Case. Very Good. ANIK MEANS "LITTLE BROTHER"[Hughes Aircraft Company]. 1975. [Model of Anik 1]. Model of Anik 1 in metal 3½" long, 2 ½ " wide across the top, and 1 ¼ ". with a wing on each side each extending 10½", 2"wide. The satellite model is attached to an angled plexiglass construction which is then mounted on an oval wooden base ¾" thick, 3 13/16`" at its widest point, and 4 7/16`` at its longest point. On the base there is a plaque reading : L`Honorable Gérard Pelletier/ Ministre Des Communications/ 1972-1975. The model is stored within a custom fitted wood case with a handle, 25" long, 6¼`" wide, and 7 ¼" deep. The base of the satellite fits into a space inset into the bottom of the case, the top of the satellite is protected by foam attached to the inner surface of the top cover, and the interior space is covered in green felt. The model is in very good condition except for one small ding at the bottom corner of the left wing. The box shows some wear on the surfaces. Anik 1 was launched in 1972 as the world`s first domestic communications satellite in order to transmit television signals from Canada`s national broadcaster, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, to Arctic communities and to provide telephone service to the North. In the United States the first domestic satellite was Westar 1, which Anik preceded by two years.HUGHES AIRCRAFT COMPANY. [1972].

[Translation: Anik. First domestic communications satellite in the world, created and manufactured by The Hughes Aircraft Company, for Telesat Canada. Offered in homage to The Honorable Gérard Pelletier. ] Gérard Pelletier (1919-1997) was a distinguished Canadian who is famous as one of the three Quebeckers who entered federal politics at the same time and went on to have very important careers: Jean Marchand, Gérard Pelletier, and Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau. Mr. Pelletier was the Minister of Communications in Prime Minister Trudeau`s cabinet from 1972 to 1976. See his autobiographical memoir L`aventure du Pouvoir 1968-1975 for a discussion of the government`s reasons for launching Anik 1. This satellite and others in the Anik series were used subsequently to distribute television signals to cable head ends for television distribution all over Canada.

        The Young Errol : Flynn Before Hollywood

      Angus & Robertson, 1975, Paperback, Book Condition: Good Condition, First EditionFirst softcover edition. 154 pages. Covers have moderate rubbing/wear. Edges of covers have moderate wear. Spine has moderate reading creases. Pages are reasonably tanned. Edges of pages are reasonably browned.A fascinating account of the early life of one of Australia's most colorful and controversial sons. John Hammond Moore trace film star Errol Flynn's turbulent career from his birth in sedate Hobart through his eccentric schooldays and his youth in Sydney and cruising the Pacific to his years as a pioneer tobacco planter in Papua and the discovery that led to Hollywood and stardom. The author comments: 'While his golden age in Hollywood produced wondrous swashbuckling, Errol Flynn was not really acting at all. He was merely transferring a natural style developed in Sydney, Port Moresby, Rabaul, and London to a much larger audience. Anecdotes, quotations from Flynn's own diaries and from people who knew him in Australia and Papua New Guinea crowd one upon the other to underscore this truth, and to embellish this rollicking tale of a man who in the author's words: 'lived for half a century the sort of life adolescents dream of but men dare not attempt. This a very scarce copy of the first printing of this title which has been in great demand since it's original release in 1975. Quantity Available: 1.

        The Book Of Sand

      Santa Rosa, CA: Nawakum Press. Fine. 2013. Signed by Artist. Cloth. One of 30 copies, of which 24 were for sale. In Spanish and in English, the text is letterpress printed on Curtis Holcomb Text and handmade Cave Paper from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Garamond types were cast by Michael and Winifred Bixler of Skanaeteles, New York. Copper relief etchings, mirroring the style noted in the story, are designed into the text and printed from the copper plates on blocks mounted type high. They are accompanied by two large copper etchings printed by the artist, recessed into boards covered with Japanese book cloth and with a Cave Paper overleaf. The peak roofed book, taking inspiration from the Biblioteca National, measures 11" x 13-1/2" and is housed in a covered box made from Cave Paper over boards. The cover label is letterpress printed on Cave Paper and inset with Japanese book cloth. Each copy is signed by the artist; "The Book of Sand" is a short story written by Jorge Luis Borges, first published in Spanish in 1975. It was from his last major collection of the same name. Borges was born in 1899 and began publishing his poetry and essays in surrrealistic literary journals in the early twenties. He later went on to much critical acclaim, sharing the first Priz International with Samuel Beckett. Borges was named director of the National Library of Argentina (Biblioteca National) in 1955, and served for nearly twenty years while almost entirely blind. Soon after resigning his position he wrote his story of a retired librarian and a very unusual book. Designed in an artists' book format, in collaboration with Peggy Gotthold and Lawernce G. Van Velzer of Foolscap Press, the Nawakum Press edition of The Book of Sand was printed and bound at their press in Santa Cruz, California. Artist and printmaker Thomas Wood of Bellingham, Washington was comissioned to create the etchings for this bilingual limited edition .

        One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest [The Movie, Signed by Kesey]

      HBO/Cannon Video n.d, NY - A VHS tape of the 1975 Academy Award-winning movie based on Kesey's novel. Signed by Kesey on the case, over the picture of Jack Nicholson, who himself won an Academy Award for the lead role. The fact that it is signed over the photo of Nicholson may be a statement on Kesey's part: he was known to have hated the casting of Nicholson as McMurphy and reportedly even considered having his own name taken off the movie in protest. He had thought that a more physically imposing actor, such as Gene Hackman, would have been more appropriate than Nicholson. Kesey's son, Zane, said that this was the only copy of the movie he had ever heard of being signed by his father, because of how thoroughly unhappy with the film he was. Fine in a very good, rubbed case, with a small sticker removal abrasion. Needless to say, scarce signed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        [High School Yearbook]: 1975 Kalibarb: The Kalibre [bound with several issues of] The Barblet

      DeKalb, IL: DeKalb High School. 1975. First. First and only edition. Screwbound printed yellow binder. Quarto. The wrapperbound yearbook, The Kalibre, bound with ten of twelve possible issues of the school newspaper, The Barblet (lacking issues seven and ten), for author Richard Powers's (here referred to mostly as Rick Powers) senior year of high school. Slight tears in the yellow cloth binder, some pages well-thumbed, student inscriptions in the yearbook, and a couple of leaves loose but sound, a very good example. Powers is pictured on at least three pages in the yearbook, twice in band pictures, and once in the National Honor Society, although curiously, he is not represented by a senior class picture. According to biographies of Powers he spent much of his high school time in Thailand, and only returned to DeKalb to finish high school, and was perhaps thus not present for the photo. He also appears at least three times in the issues of The Barblet, twice playing the cello, and once at a National Honor Society Assembly (we have by no means exhaustively searched the bound volume and may have missed other appearances). According to our research, Powers is the second most important graduate of the high school, after supermodel Cindy Crawford. .
