"Settlers of the Marsh was first published in 1925, after a struggle by the author to persuade publishers that his first novel would meet public acceptance. Some critics immediately condemned this hypnotic story of the loss of innocence on the Manitoba frontier, calling it “obscene” and “indecent.” Churches issued warnings to their congregations to avoid its scandalous contents. Only several decades later was Settlers of the Marsh recognized for what it is – a landmark in the development of the Canadian novel, and a work of realism in the tradition of Thomas Hardy. A psychological portrait of life in the Canadian West, Settlers of the Marshpresents with chilling accuracy the hopes, passions, and anxieties of young pioneers"--GoogleBooks 1966 ed

A search for America by Frederick Philip Grove( Book )

Autobiographical fiction affording numerous glimpses into Grove's life as Felix Paul Greve (1879-1909), and the three poorly documented years he spent in America before coming to Manitoba in late 1912. -- The 1928 subtitle of the L. Carrier ed., "The Odyssey of an Immigrant," is omitted. -- The "Author's Note to the Fourth Edition" [p. vii] is roughly three times as long as the December 1926 note found in all previous editions by Graphic Publishers (1., Oct. 1927; 2., January 1928 Carillon Club ed., and 3., "1st reprinting" in June 1928), and also in the so-called "American ed." by Louis Carrier (Oct. 1928). -- In the original "Author's Note" Grove had claimed that this book had been rewritten 8 times over 32 years, and that "anachronisms", as "an unavoidable consequence of such a method of composition," had to be excused for this very reason. He had thanked A.L.P. [Phelps] and W.K. [Kirkconnell] of Wesley College, Winnipeg, for their encouragement

February 1928, and the 1st reprint of June 1928, all three by Graphic Publishers [H.C. Miller], Ottawa, which read: "I reverently dedicate this book / to the memory of / George Meredith / and / Algernon Swinburne / and to one of that illustrious triad / who is still living, namely / Thomas Hardy / for / 'Canadian literature is a mere bud / on the tree of great Anglo-Saxon tradition'."--Bound in rich yellow, coated linen. The dust cover depicts, on a soft green background, a ship and globe trotter, with a distant silhouette of New York in a setting sun.

It needs to be said-- by Frederick Philip Grove( Book )

The first address is about the Canadian Author's Association. Grove had prepared a paper for its 1926 convention in Vancouver, but the session on Authorship was cancelled for a social function. Grove, indignant, published his paper along with other essays three years later in "this austerely idealistic volume" (W. Kirkconnell, A Slice of Canada, 1967, 293, quoted in Pacey, Letters of FPG, 1976, p. 150, n.4)

The temptation of Saint Antony by Gustave Flaubert( Book )

16 editions published between 1905 and 2005 in German and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A book that deeply influenced young Freud and was the inspiration for many artists, The Temptation of Saint Anthony was Flaubert's lifelong work, thirty years in the making. Based on the story of the third-century saint who lived on an isolated mountaintop in the Egyptian desert, it is a fantastical rendering of one night during which Anthony was besieged by carnal temptations and philosophical doubt." "This Modern Library Paperback Classic reproduces the distinguished Lafcadio Hearn translation, which translator Richard Sieburth calls "a splendid period piece from one of America's premier translators of nineteenth-century French prose. In Lafcadio Hearn's Latinate rendering, Flaubert's experimental drama of the modern consciusness reads as weirdly as its oneiric original.""--Jacket
