Description:
Edmonton: Co-op Press Ltd, 1970 Fascinating biography of the Alberta depression era religious and political leader and founder of the Alberta Social Credit party and the Prophetic Bible Institute. The authors are an agricultural genetics professor and admirer and Mr. Aberhart's daughter, Ola, who are surprisingly open about the life of Aberhart and the nuances of his government, describing for example, the purchase of the newspaper The Albertan by the newly elected government 'for propaganda purposes.' The book contains a picture section, forward by Ernest Manning, Mr. Aberhart's successor, and seven appendices, including a play, The Branding Irons of the Antichrist, written jointly with Manning. Ted Byfield, no wallflower himself, in his thirteen volume twentieth century history of alberta cites the then prime minister Mackenzie King, writing in his diary after Social Credit took power in Alberta, "A fortunate thing it is for Canada as a whole that this fanatical flame has thus… Read More

New York: Dial, 1968 I can't remember when I first became aware of Joan Baez, but it must have been one of those wonderful 60's or 70's times shared with good friends, good music and peace movement involvement. This is a first printing of her first memoir, written in 1968 and dedicated to young war resistors in prison. The pages are a bit toned and the front board is not pristine, but it is signed and in very good condition in an even better unclipped dust jacket with $3.95 cover price. See attached scans.

London: Weidenfeld & Nicholson, 1999 This is a revised version of the Pandora Press 1991 edition with a new forward by the author . Both book and DJ are as new. This is a fascinating book, extremely frank and rich in detail, with a focus on the relationship between Gertrude Stein and Alice B.Toklas, who were together as a couple from almost the day they met. They knew everyone and at a very interesting time, so the book is full of anecdotes about, for example, Picasso seeing Braque and Derain for the last time when he drove them to the Gare d'Avignon as they had been drafted to fight in World War I. Or again: "T.S. Eliot went to tea in 1924. He sat clasping his umbrella by the handle. He asked Gertrude why she so frequently used the split infinitive." There are many black and white photographs in the book, which the author obtained from a variety of sources, including the Yale collection. The technical quality of these is not what one has come to expect, but they are plentiful and… Read More
