Holy Ground: The Story of the Sanatorium at Ninette

By Stewart, David B.

Illustrated. Pp169. Includes appendices and index. Previous owner name and date neatly to top of title page else tight and clean - a very good copy in lightly scuffed covers.240 grams - ships lettermail in Canada at reduced postage when you contact us directly! From the introduction: This book is about a very special kind of hospital. It was the first sanatorium in the prairie provinces for patients with tuberculosis. At first it was intended to admit only those who had early and treatable disease, but it soon grew into a specialized hospital which cared for people at any stage of the disease. It became a model and an inspiration for others that followed. Its story begins in the early years of the twentieth century when concerned and imaginative people saw a great need and resolved to meet it. This book is mainly about the sanatorium itself rather than about the Sanatorium Board of Manitoba; but the two influenced each other so greatly that a history would be incomplete which did not deal with both. Through several decades the sanatorium grew, adapted to new knowledge and adopted new treatments which saved many lives. As the tuberculosis epidemic waned in the south but spread like wildfire to the north, it could at last extend its services to the aboriginal people whose need was greatest. In the last phase when tubeerculosis seemed to have been defeated -- ""the miracle of the empty beds"" -- it closed its doors as a sanatorium but became a smaller institution with a less vital but still very necessary function.

150 Years of Art in Manitoba: Struggle for a Visual Civilization

By Winnipeg Art Gallery

Winnipeg: Winnipeg Art Gallery, 1970. Paper bound in illustrated card covers, oblong 8vo, illustrated with plates in colour and black & white, xii + Pp115. A tight and clean, very good or better copy. An exhibition for the Manitoba Centennial, 1970. From the foreword: The title of our exhibition, '150 Years of Art in Manitoba,' means art created in Manitoba or art created for Manitoba. It includes, also, art created by Manitobans who left the province. It puts emphasis on art and is not mainly a historical exhibition, although the historical value of some works may have influenced us in making our choices. Works are those of professional artists or of amateurs. The exhibition shos painting and sculpture, including drawings, prints, and, sometimes, photography. We had to omit crafts, because the material would have been too extensive, and also church art, although the thought of including ecclesiastic sculpture and painting and stained-glass windows was very tempting.' Very good. Multiple copies available. 415 grams - may ship by lettermail at reduced postage when you contact us directly! We welcome all reasonable offers on our books. All books in stock and available for immediate shipment from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
