Rare Book Event at Thetis Island Marina Monday ~ July 8th, 2019 

9AM- 2PM 

Antiquarian and art and maritime books, a vintage Alice in Wonderland Collection, a whole box of older Hemingway, another of Charles Dickens, Quotations from Mao Tse-Tung, Love Poems of Lord Byron in Calf, Group of Seven by Thoreau Macdonald with a Lawren Harris tipped in, box of Haig-Brown the BC conservationist, Cookbooks to 1930, 2 boxes of art books, a ration book circa 1945, RCMP quarterlies, Conan comics, and a complete collection of rare Saltspring Island histories including Once Upon an Island And One Man's Island By David Conover who “discovered” Marilyn Monroe. CD of Kuper Island residential school survivors testimony, Thetis Island naval history (when the British lost). Also Pig War island And the history of the Black settlers on the island who were sponsored by Governor Douglas. Also as recorded by Franz Boas with First Nations elders over 100 years ago, ancient aboriginal recipes for 100s of seafood and fish and indigenous plants known to few people today.

Sometimes rare books end up in small towns and islands and I will give a generous trade to you or the seniors’ center if you can bring me Cree or Blackfoot or Dene etc. First Nations books or maybe a whole collection of British books over 100 years old that the young people buy from me at my Christmas bookstall near City Hall in Vancouver.
