Fascinating 19th century history of British Columbia , in the Canadian west, in the years 1847 to 1871; the time between the drawing of the international boundary and B.C.'s entry into Confederation. In those years, some of the most exciting episodes on the 'new frontier' occured , including the almost war over the San Juan Islands ; the arrival of the bride ship Tynemouth ; the rivalry between the twin colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia ; the building of the Collins Overland Telegraph ; the preparation for attacks on the colonists by Irish Fenians ; the administration of English law by Judge Begbie ; "The Overlanders of '62" cross from Canada ; the arrival of Viscount Milton and Dr. Cheadler ; the planning of the roads to the Interior by Governor Douglas ; Colonal Moody and his Royal Engineers arrival from Britain, and the Royal Marines from China ; missionaries doing their work ; the athoritarian Christian Indian village built by William Duncan at Metlakatla ; the discovery of coal in Nanaimo , and gold in the Queen Charlotte Islands , along the Fraser River and the Thompson River, and, in incredible quantities, the gold rush in the Cariboo ; the first 'independent' settler, eccentric Captain Grant ; the Christmas Indian race held at Takla lake; and much more.

Author G.P.V. Akrigg was born in 1913 in Calgary, where his father was serving with the Royal North West Mounted Police. He became a professor at UBC , and wrote two previous books to this which were both published by Harvard University Press and his book on Shakespeare was selected by the New York Times as one of its ten best books of that year. His wife Helen was born in Prince Rupert; her father E.C. Manning was District Forester , and later had Manning Park named in his honor. She wrote her M.A. thesis on the Shuswap Lake district, where they lived, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 1970. This book was a labor of love for them, and affords hours of enjoyment for the armchair traveller who dreams of the days of the frontier and gold rushes in Victorian times, when men were men and women were scarce and a fresh egg and a clean bed were literally worth their weight in gold.

British Buses Before 1945
London , England: Ian Allan Pub, 1995. 1995 Printing. Hard Cover in Dust Jacket. Photos. 7 x 9 -1/2 " 0711022798 1995 HARDCOVER book in dust Jacket. Very Good book in Very Good dustjacket ; yellow highlighting on several paragraphs, otherwise no notable flaws; still Nice and Cllean and tight. Book size : 7" wide x 9-1/2" tall ; illustrated with black & white Photographs ... Between the year 1900 and the end of the Second World War , the bus in England and much of the United Kingdom - initially petrol ( gasoline ) and later diesel engined - evolved dramatically to a point where both urban and rural operators came to rely on the pneumatically-tyred bus in preference to the tram and to the trolley-bus ... The early years of the 20th century had seen small motorbuses - often with very limited capacity - developed ... Many of these were based upon chassis produced for commercial vehicles and the economice compared unfavourably with the much more substantial elecric trams ... Almost half a century later the bus had become recognizable as a vehicle of mass public transport ... In Britsh Buses Before 1945 noted transport historian and writer John Aldridge explores the development of the bus through the many manufacturers - some well known, others almost forgotten - that attempted to produce buses ... Whilst many of the manufacturers were British, it is interesting to note how far the Europeans and the Americans penetrated the market - a fascinating foretaste of what was to happen in the 1970s and 1980s ... By the end of the period covered, the British bus market was dominated by a few leading players - such as AEC, Leyland and Daimler - whilst others - like Crossley - maintained an interest ... But many others had come and gone ... Fully illustrated, with a superb selection of photographs, this is a remarkable account of the development of the bus in Britain. This book is : " Britsih Buses Before 1945 " ... By John Aldridge ... 1995 Hard cover book, published by Ian Allan, London England ***. Very Good/Very Good .

Death and Disaster - the Rise of the Warhol Empire and the Race for Andy's Millions
New York: Random House Villard, 1994. Second Printing. Hard Cover in Dust Jacket. Photos. 6-1/4 x 9-1/2 x 1 " 0679432736 1994 Hardcover book , second printing, in the original dust Jacket ... Brand new from 1994 publisher ... Never opened , Never read , Never marked; very small scrumple one corner. Book size: 6-1/4" wide x 9-1/2" tall x 1" thick; 258 pages; illustrated with 18 pages black and white glossy photographs of Warhol, some of his artwork, and the inside of his townhouse, and some people from his life, including Tom Wolfe, as well as photos of the trial to determine the value of the estate after his untimely death ... You can't take it with you ... Trouble is, he wasn't planning on going ... at least not then ... The sudden shocking death of the late great American artist Andy Warhol took the art world by surprise ... and must have been quite a shock to him as well ... Even though he always had a deep distrust of hospitals , he didn't expect to be actually killed outright in one ... " Dead means a lot of money, honey " , Warhold once said ... And he was right ... After his death , the story of shameless greed, dastardly deeds, brilliant investments, tainted alliances, stolen treasures, power plays, and the many different types of love, as well as lust for money, which played out , would have topped even the ironic wit of Andy himself ... Almost the moment of his death in 1987, less than 24 hours after being admitted for a routine and minor operation ... an executor took charge, lawyers were called in , Andy's townhouse, stuffed to the rafters with antiques, collectables, paintings, bric-a-brac and just plain junk, was sealed ... Security guards were posted at the Factory ... but ... not before Warhol paintings were moved to secret warehouses ... some of those paintings never to be seen again ... The private world that Andy had so carefully constructed and kept hidden for more than 30 years was about to go public in a big way ... A brilliant collector, compulsive shopper, and compulsive painter, Andy left vast holdings of antique furniture and jewellry, as well as some museum quality artifacts, and contemporary art by many other artists; as well as a profitable magazine, his New York properties, and , most valuable of all ... his own unsold work ... in numbers so large, it would take months to even appraise it ... In their early moments of shock, his associates set the value of his estate at only between 10 and 15 million dollars... Seven years later, with the estate still not closed, some claimed it was worth $220 million ... some said as much as 4 times that ... Who was right , and who was wrong, and who was crooked, and who was just plain dumb ? ... It took a court case to sort it all out ... and when the dust settled, the judge in New York, in 1994, had to assess the value ... Shortly after his death in the late 80s, as directed in his will, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts was created - it was a non-profit organization to give out grants ... By 1990, however the foundation and the estate that created it would be at war ... along with the laywer who at one time represented both entities ... The battle raged in court, and in the newspapers and magazines and on the television news ... When the case was finally ended, the estate value was set in the court at more than 500 million dollars ... As Andy might have said ... " great " ( no exclamation mark ) ... But the process it took to get there was anything but great - it was both comic and tragic, and ultimately absurd ... This is the true story of what went on with the Warhol estate ... what there was, who got what and what went where ... Absolutely fascinating ... Author Paul Alexander has written for the New York Times Magazine, ARTnews, The Village Voice , and others, and is the author of Rough Magic, the biography of Sylvia Plath, as well as Boulevard of Broken Dreams, the biography of James Dean ... He lives in Manhattan. This book is ; " Death and Disaster - The Rise of the Warhol Empire and the Race for Andy's Millions " ... by Paul Alexander ... published by Random House Villard , New York ... 1994 Hard cover book in its original DJ ***.

The Mystery of the Duchess of Malfi
Gloucestshire UK: Sutton Publishing, 2002. 2002 First Edition. Hard Cover in Dust Jacket. Photos. 6 -1/2 x 9-1/2 x 1 " 0750928409 2002 First Edition , First Printing HARDCOVER book in Dust Jacket ... Brand new from 2002 publisher ... Never opened , Never read , Never marked . Book size : 6-1/2" wide x 9-1/2" tall x 1" thick ; 250 pages with epilogue, bibliography, index ; illustrated with 8 pages glossy Photographs . Handsome book, black textured cloth over boards, with Gold gilt title impressed on spine, in glossy photographic jacket illustrated with front cover illustration featuring portrait known as 'Giovanna d'Aragona', from the workshop of Raphael ( Galleria Doria Pamphili, Italy ): portrait of an unknown cardinal by Raphael (c. 1511) - possibly Cardinal d'Aragona, brother of the Duchess of Amalfi ( Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid ): the Torre dello Ziro in Amalfi, where Giovanni allegedly died; back cover: coat of arms of the Todeschini Picccolomini d'Aragona Dukes of Amalfi .. Since the publication in 1623 of John Webster's play, The Duchess of Malfi, the life of Giovanni d'Aragona, Duchess of Malfi has been the stuff of writers, artists and myth-makers ... The issues that Giovanni lived and ultimately died for - the struggle between love and duty, between family loyalty and personal ambition, between temporal and spiritual values - are real enough, but what is the truth behind the woman whose Cardinal brother takes savage revenge when he discovers her secret marriage to a man beneath her social station? ... This biography teases out the truth behind a 500-year-old murder mystery and for the first time lets us glimpse the woman behind the mask ... Giovanni was destined to tragedy ... Born into the royal House of Aragon in 1478, her father was poisoned and died before her birth; married at the age of 12, she lost her first child who died in infancy; by 20 she was a beautiful, rich and lonely widow ... That she fell in love with her accomplished young steward, Antonio Bologna, was accepted; that she married him was not ... In doing so Giovanna defied the social mores and conventions of her day and stalled the overweening ambitions of her brother, Luigi d'Aragona ... In the acts of revenge that followed, she, her husband and her maid all met their deaths ... Barbara Banks Amedola's unique knowlege of contemporary Italian sources provides a vivid backdrop of the politics, society and culture of Renaissance Italy ... She calls on to the stage the kings of Spain, France and the Neapolitan House of Aragon as they vie for control of the penninsula, the treacherous Borgias, the wily Medicis, the Mantuan Gonzagas and the Estes of Ferrara - an awe-inspiring cast, illustrated throughout the book by the great artists they employed ... In this vivid and compelling biography, Amendola unravels the facts behind the fiction to reveal a powerful tale of deceit, betrayal and treachery ... Her book will appeal to anyone intrigued to discover the real story behind a drama which has captivated for nearly 400 years.
