He carved his first commissioned totem pole in Alert Bay c1900, and titled it "Raven of the Sea."Martin was responsible for the restoration and repair of many carvings and sculptures, totem poles, masks, and various other ceremonial objects. Martin also gained fame for holding the first public potlatch since the governmental potlatch ban of 1885. For this, he was awarded with a medal by the Canadian Council."

DJ shows some wear to extremities and rubbing along spine. ; A bright solid, book, DJ in Mylar. ; 144 pages; "This is the first serious study done in Canada of Fraktur, a rich tradition of folk art having its beginnings in Medieval Europe and brought to North America by Germanic settlers fleeing religious persecution. The art of manuscript illumination attained its most exuberant form of expression among the Germanic communities of Pennsylvania in the 18th and 19th centuries. Michael Bird examines in detail the major teaching groups who practiced at that time and discusses the tradition as it appears in the three founding Mennonite communities in southern Ontario - the Niagara Peninsula, Markham Township and Waterloo County. Further aspects explored are the calligraphic and pictorial elements of Fraktur, its major decorative uses, and a consideration of Fraktur as religious art. With its 242 illustrations, many in full color, this book presents a treasury of beautiful images that will delight all those with an interest in art."
