[CITY OF WINNIPEG]
CITY OF WINNIPEG BY-LAWS
Winnipeg, MB, City of Winnipeg , 1st edition, . 8vo,
¶ We offer a collection of 49 bound annual volumes of the bylaws passed by the council of the City of Winnipeg. Each is a separate volume commencing in 1928, and running continuously through to 1980. There are no volumes for the war year of 1941 and the immediate post-war year of 1946. Each volume measures approximately 24 x 17 cm and is bound in either marbled boards, or stiff card covers. The binding is utilitarian - not fancy. Some volumes are quite thick; some are less so - it all depended on the amount of legislation the council passed in any given year, and some sessions were more prolific than others. All volumes came from the law department of the Canadian Pacific Railway and bear their rubber stamps on the preliminary pages. Otherwise, each volume is in excellent condition. This is a heavy set of books.

[INDENTURE] [LEASE] [EARLY LEGAL DOCUMENT]
FRANCIS THOREBY of Gaywood, in the County of Norfolk and J. GEORGE NUSOMES of the same / LEASE
County of Norfolk, England., 1688, . Ill.: With one wax seal. An entirely hand-written legal document measuring 54 x 42 cms. Written on rag-content paper.
¶ Although written in a period cursive script, the contents of this legal document are quite readable, if one bears in mind the peculiar spelling of the times. The face of the document is bright, with virtually no foxing, soiling, or spotting. It is signed by George Nusome making his mark (an "X") at the bottom right, just above the red wax seal. In the document itself, and on the reverse, the signatory is described as "Nusomes". His mark is witnessed by John Holman and John Stafford, who have signed at the bottom left. The document has been folded into "twelves", and there is the inevitable creasing at the folds as well as some closed tears at the margins. At a location about 13 x 13 cms from the bottom right corner, a thumb-nail sized piece is absent; similarly to the left of the centre fold. The document is trimmed in a "wavy" pattern at the top and straight otherwise. On the reverse of the document is a brief recitation of the contents, written in a different hand, that is considerably more difficult to read, but it appears that the lease is for a period of five years, until July 1, 1693. The reverse side does show some soiling.

LES LOIX ET STATUTS DU PAYS DE VAUD, Avec un Repertoire tres exact
Berne [Bern, Switzerland], Nic. Emanuel Haller 1730, hb. 12mo, pp. 591,index.
¶ The Canton of Vaud is the third-largest of the the Swiss cantons by population and fourth in size. It is located in Romandy, the French-speaking western part of the country. The capital is Lausanne. At the time of the publication of this book, Vaud was under the (unwelcome) jurisdiction of the German-speaking Bernese (headquartered in Bern); however the text of this volume is in French. It is divided into three parts, all of which deal with the "Coustumier" or customary laws of the "country" of Vaud. At the end of the book is a comprehnsive index (unpaginated, containing 39 pages). The text is curiously numbered, as the printer has assigned two page numbers to each page. Hence, although the text is numbered to page 591, there are actually only half that number of pages. The volume is bound in period old sheep, with considerable wear to the board edges. The word "Goutum" is stamped to a leather label affixed to the spine. The endpapers are marbled, and on the front pastedown is affixed an armorial bookplate of Robert Derret. The first blank page is overwritten in French, in a nice 18th, or 19th, century hand. The facing page recounts, in a different hand but still in French, a presentation of this book in 1748. The last blank page contains some scribbled notes above a 1744 date. The remainder of the book shows some page darkening and foxing throughout, but it is not untoward, and the text remains perfectly legible. The binding is tight.

SUGGESTIONS FOR A MODEL ORDINANCE FOR REGULATING MOTION PICTURE THEATRES
New York City, National Board of Censorship ND (c. 1913), 1st printing, wrappers. 8vo, pp. 15.
¶ This board was founded in 1909 in New York City, barely more than a decade after the development of the commercial cinema. Marcus Loew and other film distributers (including Edison) joined with John Collier of the People's Institute to endorse films of merit and champion the new "art of the people". In 1916, the board changed its name to "The National Board of Review"; hence this undated pamphlet, which carries the old name of the board, was apparently published prior to that year (WorldCat suggests a publishing year of 1913, and lists only three copies, worldwide, in institutional holdings). It is a stapled pamphlet, in printed card covers, containing suggestions covering all aspects of the showing of motion pictures, including the design and construction of "picture theatres", seating capacity, width of aisles, chairs, projection booths, heating and ventilation, and the attendance of children. A special section is devoted to the topic "Moral Control of the Program". The card covers are a bit "thumbed" at the corners with almost indiscernable soiling and creasing. Contents unmarked. A very good copy of an important document of American cinema history.
