The Marlinspike Sailor - The classic reference for the sailor’s arts in natural or synthetic rope.
Smith, Hervey Garrett
ISBN: 0070592187
International Marine/Ragged Mountain Press September 1, 1993  1993 
  4to softcover 131pp Very good. The Marlinspike Sailor to cult classic status when it was published in 1956. With the addition of a section on modern, synthetic rope in the 1970s, its popularity has continued undiminished to this day. It teaches a few basic knots--the bowline, sheet bend, and rolling hitch, among others--and splices in three-strand and braided rope. But its real business is decorative rope and canvaswork--the traditional arts of the sailor--and here it has no equal. For a rope mat, a rope ladder, a sea chest, a ditty bag, a canvas bucket, a mast boot, and the best-looking rope fenders or heaving line in the marina, this is the book of choice.

MEN OF WAR: THE CHANGING FACE OF HEROISM IN THE 19TH CENTURY NAVY
CRANE, DAVID
ISBN: 0007254059
HARPERPRESS 2009  2009 
  8vo hardcover in d/w. 496pp near fine. Index. Illustrtions. Through the lives of three outstanding naval officers -- each considered the most brilliant commander of his generation -- David Crane offers a unique portrait of the Royal Navy at a time when it held unchallenged dominion over the world's oceans. Although all three died young, their careers covered virtually every war of significance in which the navy was involved during the nineteenth century. They fought against French and Americans, Russians, Turks, Egyptians, Indians and Chinese, in fleet engagements and naval bombardments, on the walls of Canton and the banks of the Mississippi, against Malay pirates and sepoy mutineers. As an eleven-year-old volunteer, Frank Hastings saw action at Trafalgar, and he went on to be revered as a hero of the Greek War of Independence. Yet, as the architect and captain of the first successful steam warship and the champion of gunnery and total war, he unwittingly prepared the way for much that would be bloodiest in the century ahead. Nobody who saw him in the trenches of the Crimea would ever forget William Peel's air of inviolable self-mastery under fire, and it was the same in India, where he could ride through a landscape of decomposing corpses as if it were some mythological world conjured up to try his knightly resolve. What was it that enabled a man of his intelligence, temperament, piety and background -- the son of the Prime Minister Robert Peel -- to fight with such brilliance in defence of an Ottoman Empire that was repugnant to every tenet he held most strongly? If James Goodenough chased Glory as assiduously as Hastings and Peel had done, it was the Glory of the next world, and not this. Throughout his career he strove to reconcile the demands of his faith and his profession, but when he finally met his martyrdom at the hands of the 'savages' of the Pacific islands, a shocked nation was left to face up to the inconsistencies, hypocrisies and self-deceptions on which floated its vision of divine election. Combining thrilling scenes of battle with acute psychological insight, Men of War provides a remarkable picture of the nature of courage, command and warfare.

Myth, Fact, and Navigators’ Secrets: Incredible Tales of the Sea and Sailors
Dill, J. Gregory
ISBN: 1592288790
The Lyons Press 2006  2006 
  8vo softcover 209pp, b/w illus. very good. After culling little-known facts from the world's nautical heritage, author J. Gregory Dill has written an engaging series of marine stories-like the 1813 account of a short and bloody sea duel between the U.S. frigate Chesapeake and His Britannic Majesty's Ship Shannon, equally matched in firepower and their captains' tactical skills, but in the final analysis having absolutely no strategic significance in the war's outcome. Then there is the bizarre tale of Captain John Paul Jones's 1779 naval raid on a Scottish coastal estate to kidnap the local VIP, Lord Selkirk, in a bid to win release of American prisoners of war. When Selkirk was found to be away, Jones seized instead his intended victim's household silverware, including teapots and sugar bowls, after having politely declined Lady Selkirk's kind invitation to dinner.

Adventures in Ocean Exploration : From the Discovery of the Titanic to the Search for Noah’s Flood [ILLUSTRATED]
Ballard, Robert D.
ISBN: 0792279921
National Geographic 2001  2001 
  Large 4to hardcover 288pp index, colour illus. Fine / very good d/w whi is a little loose & creased on top edge. For decades, Robert Ballard has pursued a dual career as a marine scientist and a pioneering discoverer, locating scores of wrecks all over the world, including the Titanic and the battleship Bismarck. In this lavishly illustrated chronicle, he uses his most exciting dives as starting points for an odyssey through time, tracing the evolution of ships and navigation from the first reed boats to the nuclear submarines of today. nnBallard tells of plunging 12,000 feet to the floor of the Atlantic and finding new life in the superheated water around active volcanoes on the Pacific Seabed. Readers join a team of technicians on the bridge of a research ship as they "fly" a state-of-the-art, unmanned submersible over the Titanic's ghostly hull.

The Turn Of The Road
Bartimeus
Chatto and Windus 1946  1946 
  8vo. Blue cloth hard cover in D/W. Minor foxing to title pages and minor foxing to end pages. 122pp. 5 diagrams. 3 fold out maps. In this book Bartimeus presents a first-hand record of one of the most crucial half-years in the war - November 8th, 1942, when the first allied landing was made in North Africa, to May 9th, 1943, when it had become evident that, in spite of intitial misfortunes, the immensely difficult and ambitious project had been successful. The most important of the eleven sections deals with naval matters paying particular attention to the parts played by the Royal Navy and the Merchant Navy, supplemented by some extremely interesting statistics. Bartimeus also describes a number of specific naval actions and exploits of individual vessals. His account includes quotations from records and signal logs which, with their staccato humour and supreme understatement, relieve the tension of the story and reveal some remarkable personalities. The naval aspect of the campaign is seen in relation to the military strategy and to the political background, with particular reference to the French, whose attitude is clearly analysed.

The History Of Pirates
Konstam, Angus
ISBN: 1904668070
Mercury Books 2005  2005 
  4to hardcover 192pp index, colour illus. very good+ / very good+ d/w. The History of Pirates traces piracy from the seas of antiquity to the New World and beyond. It is a thorough, authoritative and memorable portrait of the fascinating world of pirates. Detailed maps bear vivid testimony to the far-ranging exploits of these capricious, sometimes charismatic, and frequently bloodthirsty sea-dogs and highwaymen of the oceans.nnnFrom the Back CovernnPiracy flourished in the early 18th century, producing many of the buccaneers whose legendary names have gripped our imaginations: Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, and Bartholomew Roberts, to name a few. Yet piracy on the high seas existed long before Blackbeard's name struck terror in the hearts of merchant seamen - Julius Caesar was captured by pirates - and it remains a problem today. Modern pirates regularly attack vessels sailing through the South China Sea. The History of Pirates traces piracy from the seas of antiquity to the New World and beyond. It represents a thorough, authoritative, and memorable portrait of the fascinating world of pirates. Detailed maps bear vivid testimony to the far-ranging exploits of these capricious, often charismatic, and frequently bloodthirsty robbers of the high seas.

Psalm at Journey’s End - A Titanic Story
Hansen, Erik Fosnes
ISBN: 0436204096
Seeker and Warburg 1997  1997 
  8vo softcover 352pp very good. Among the many myths surrounding the 1912 sinking of the Titanic was the notion that the ship's band played on until the end. Norwegian novelist Erik Fosnes Hansen has seized upon that story as the hinge for this fascinating, if at times distressing, book about the musicians aboard the fatal voyage. The fictional band members, who hail from across Europe, find a certain kinship on the vessel besides that of a life spent chasing musical dreams. Their lives, each treated almost as novellas, reflect the tragedies the war will soon bring to Europe. The whole event is played out metaphorically in the tales of simple people involved in tragic events. Skilled research and impressionistic prose are expertly mixed into a poetic, absorbing story in Norwegian writer Hansen's novel. As in the recent Maiden Voyage by Cynthia Bass, the stage is set on the doomed Titanic's voyage from Southampton in April 1912. Hansen's characters are the band musicians, celebrated in Titanic lore, who continued playing as the ship went down. Rather than speculate about the actual people, whose names and lives are known, he has invented characters assembled from diverse parts of Britain, Russia and the continent. The complex past of five of these musicians is woven into the tale of the fateful crossing. These are men drowning in emotional turbulence and desolation, a metaphorical foreshadowing of their actual fate. Their stories are ablaze with the drama of love gone awry and talents not fully realized, but Hansen also uses them to speculate on the larger themes of responsibility and fate, reason and faith. He writes with fierce energy, creating emotional landscapes that may make one think of the evocative scenes and brilliant colors of Turner paintings. In all, it's a brilliant piece of storytelling.

Around the World Rally
Cornell, Jimmy
ISBN: 0713636904
Adlard Coles Nautical, 1993  1993 
  8vo softcover 208pp index, b/w illus. very good. This book provides an analysis of the way in which 36 different cruising boats, their equipment and their crews performed during 16 months and 24,000 miles of tough ocean sailing. Europa 92, the first round the world rally for cruising boats, brought together these yachts in an event which visited 18 countries, covering between them over 600,000 miles. This international fleet, ranging from 40 to 72 feet, formed a cross-section of current cruising boat design, and both boats and crews were well tried and tested during their voyage around the world. This book gives an insight into the successes and failures experienced by the participants. Divided into sections covering all aspects of cruising from equipment, instruments, sails and maintenance to provisioning, navigation and watchkeeping, its conclusions offer lessons to any sailor, whether cruising in home water or planning a circumnavigation.
