By John Leroux; Laurel Boone; Gary K Hughes; Robert Leavitt; Stuart A Smith

Fredericton New Brunswick: Goose Lane, 2008. pict. covers, 310 pages : illustrations (chiefly color), maps, 4 line ink notation on half-title, else v.g. "New Brunswick's architecture has traditionally exhibited excellence in craftsmanship, faithfulness to materials and harmony with the environment. Building New Brunswick examines the built heritage of the province, from pre-history until today - from the humblest dwelling to the grandest public edifice." "In this volume, Leroux also documents more adventurous takes on modern space and aesthetics, found particularly in churches constructed from the late 1940s to early 1970s and in the expressive spaces of the Modern Movement. He observes that structures such as the initial Universite de Moncton buildings, the Hugh John Flemming Bridge in Hartland, and the Centennial Building in Fredericton will be increasingly valued as central to New Brunswick's heritage. By the late twentieth century, the province began to witness surprising interpretations of Postmodernist, Neotraditionalist, Contemporary and Green architecture, marking a renewed enthusiasm for celebrating form."--Jacket..

BEFORE SCOTLAND : the story of Scotland before History

By Moffat Alistair

London: Thames & Hudson, 2005. cloth, dust jacket, 352 pages, 16 unnumbered pages of plates : color illustrations, maps, (22 colour illustrations and two maps) CONTENTS: The painted islands -- The ice domes -- The wildwood -- The kindred ground -- Homely geometry -- The iron warlords -- Caledonia -- The last of the British. "The story of the land that became Scotland is one of dramatic geological events and impressive human endeavour. Alistair Moffat's narrative begins 10,000 years ago, when the power of icebreak and meltwater at the close of the Ice Age produced the familiar Scottish geography of mountains, glens, flatlands and coasts. Bands of hunters moved north, many of whom probably crossed from the lost peninsula of Doggerland, so vividly evoked by the author. Modern DNA studies show that almost 80 per cent of the present population of Britain are the direct descendants of these first hunter-gatherer-fishers." "The author displays his knowledge, interweaving the narrative with numerous special features on topics such as cave drawings of dancing girls, natural birth control, the myth of Atlantis and the Zoroastrian Towers of Silence - all of them valuable, sometimes quirky, additions to the whole picture."--Jacket..
