James King R.N.: Captain Cook Is Killed But The Third Voyage Of Discovery Goes On by John Bolton King (£58.50)Publisher: South West Maritime Society — 2004Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 095264553X]Condition: Near Fine.Description: No. 4 in the series. Illustrated with black and white photographs & maps. From the cover: “This book starts where others leave off, when Captain James Cook was murdered in Hawaii in 1779, but his third voyage of discovery went on for another 27,000 miles of often hazardous sailing. A factual, exciting, and often funny story of those adventures on land and sea as first told in the journal of Lieutenant, soon to become Captain, James King. Many others who were later renowned explorers were on this expedition, including William Bligh, George Vancouver and James Burney. Global navigation comes into this account but, perhaps for the first time, this is a book written just as much for the landsman and layman as for the seaman and naval historian. Admiral G. S. (Steve) Ritchie, Hydrographer to the Royal Navy from 1966 to 1971 and President of the Directing Committee of the International Hydrographic Bureau from 1972 to 1981 has said ‘James King was a fine man and dealt with a difficult situation admirably’."Notes: Size: 8¼" x 5¾".

The best-selling book in its field, it is used throughout America as a textbook in sailing schools and Power Squadrons. Now lengthened and updated to cover changes in regulations, equipment, and skills, it remains the last word on sailing skills for all sailors — beginners and experts alike.

A monumental undertaking, The Annapolis Book of Seamanship is a complete, authoritative, and fully illustrated guide to every aspect of sailboat handling. Based on the curriculum materials used in the sailing program of the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis — one of the largest and most successful sailing programs in existence anywhere — this book emphasizes the standardized skills and proven methods that eliminate error and confusion, ensure safe handling and security in emergencies, and allow every sailor more time for true enjoyment on the water.

From navigation and seamanship to boat and gear maintenance, from pleasure cruising to heavy-weather sailing, here is the definitive, state-of-the-art guide that provides systematic step-by-step techniques to see you through every situation on deck and in the cockpit.”

The Canals of South and South East England by Charles Hadfield (£28.00)Publisher: Newton Abbot: David & Charles — 1969Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a very small nick to the foot of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendices [2]; Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “Charles Hadfield’s The Canals of Southern England, published in 1955, has been out of print for some time. Since it was written, new records have been found and specialised studies made of several waterways within the area covered. It has therefore been replaced by two new volumes, The Canals of South West England already published, and this present book.

The Canals of South and South East England tells the story of all inland waterways south of the Thames and of Gloucester, and east of a line drawn roughly from Bristol to Christchurch. These include major canals like the Thames & Severn, Gloucester & Berkeley and Kennet & Avon, the Thames navigation itself, the many smaller canals and navigable rivers in the London area, Kent, Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire, and interesting schemes that came to nothing.

The old text has been thoroughly revised, and there is also much completely new information, especially on waterways about which separate books have not yet been written: the Stroudwater, Wilts and Berks, Grand Surrey, Croydon, Thames & Medway, Medway, Kentish Stour, and those of Hampshire.”

Merchant Adventurers: The Voyage of Discovery That Transformed Tudor England by James Evans (£20.50)Publisher: London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 2103Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9780297866886]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Maps [1];

From the cover: “In the spring of 1553 three ships sailed north-east from London into uncharted waters. The scale of their ambition was breathtaking. Drawing on the latest navigational science and the new spirit of enterprise and discovery sweeping the Tudor capital, they sought a northern passage to Asia and its riches.

The success of the expedition depended on its two leaders: Sir Hugh Willoughby, a brave gentleman soldier, and Richard Chancellor, a brilliant young scientist and practical man of the sea. When their ships became separated in a storm, each had to fend for himself. Their fates were sharply divided. One returned to England, to recount extraordinary tales of the imperial court of Tsar Ivan the Terrible. The tragic, mysterious story of the other two ships has to be pieced together through the surviving captain’s log book, after he and his crew became lost and trapped by the advancing Arctic winter.

This long neglected endeavour was one of the boldest in British history, and its impact was profound. Although the merchant adventurers failed to reach China as they had hoped, their achievements would lay the foundations for England’s expansion on a global stage. As James Evans’ vivid account shows, their voyage also makes for a gripping story of daring, discovery, tragedy and adventure.”

Charts of War: The Maps and Charts That Have Informed and Illustrated War At Sea by John Blake (£20.00)Publisher: London: Conway — 2006Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1844860310]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper pulled at the head of the upper panel with two small nicks toward the top corner. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “Information is power, and in centuries past sea charts were guarded by both a ship’s navigator and the State, stretched on oak boards or rolled in leather cylindrical quivers, locked away. As the European nations began their territorial acquisition and contest in earnest, the information charts contained of harbour approaches, coastal landmarks and hazards, currents and tides, could give one side or another the advantage.

From the ships of small expeditionary fleets, which carried navigational charts, to the requirements of modern ships involved in combined operations, which need charts to include a whole range of information, John Blake has produced a fascinating, illustrated account of the role that charts have played in planning, preventing, conducting and recording war at sea. The selection not only includes charts depicting major battles and amphibious operations, but those drawn up for tactical and espionage purposes, for coastal defence and the positioning of forts along rivers and at the entrance to harbours.

Chapters run in chronological order, organized according to the overall political scene, but the main focus is on the development of chart making and surveying in relation to changing warfare techniques. Informative captions accompany each chart, setting them in historical context and providing illuminating details about the main protagonists and the chart makers and surveyors themselves. Taken from a range of international maritime archives, they include portolan charts of Spanish acquisitions in the New World; Francis Drake’s attack of Cadiz in 1587, known as ‘the singeing of the King of Spain’s beard’; the Dutch attack on Chatham in 1667 during the Second Anglo-Dutch War; a plan of Chesapeake Bay where British naval forces failed to relieve General Cornwallis during the American War of Independence; William Bligh’s chart of the Battle of Copenhagen in 1801; charts of the Battle of Jutland, one British, one German; and the operational chart drawn up before the D-Day landings at Omaha beach.”

The Call of the Sea: Britain's Maritime Past 1900-1960 by Steve Humphries (£11.50)Publisher: British Broadcasting Corporation [B.B.C./BBC] — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9780563387220]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “ The Call of the Sea, and the television series which it accompanies, is a unique record of Britain’s maritime past told through the memories of ordinary people in whose lives the sea played a central role.

As an island, Britain has always retained strong links with the sea. The Call of the Sea evokes many of the greatest of Britain’s maritime traditions, such as the history of our Naval power, the fishing industry and the sea-rescue services.

Before the Second World War Britain was the greatest seafaring nation in the world. However, a life at sea was one of the most dangerous and uncomfortable that anyone could choose. On some occasions the appalling conditions drove crews to mutiny. Dramatic stories of shipwreck, survival and rescue are all part of maritime history. The Call of the Sea includes many incredible tales of adventure and heroism, some of the most amazing of which involve women mariners who defied convention to brave the dangers of a life at sea.

The Call of the Sea is a fascinating history of our maritime heritage, bringing the past to life and painting a vivid picture of what it was really like to live and work at sea..”

Man and The Stars: Contact and Communication With Other Intelligence by Duncan Lunan (£10.50)Publisher: Book Club Associates — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with slightly heavier fading at the spine. Edges of the text block lightly tanned.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Contact with civilisations from another galaxy has been a science-fiction dream for nearly a century — but what if it were happening today ? Duncan Lunan believes, with Arthur C. Clarke, that man’s emergence into space is the most important step in evolution since life on Earth left the seas for dry land. He sees man’s exploration of space as his only alternative to regression, and he believes that we should start preparing ourselves for it. In 1972, as President of the Association in Scotland for Technology and Research in Astronautics (ASTRA), he chaired a series of discussions on interstellar travel, led by experts in the technology, astronomy, logistics and psychology of space exploration. The discussions examined the probable aims, means and problems of an Earth programme to find other planets suitable for life, to set up colonies there, and make possible contact with other civilisations. The findings of the conference led to the writing of this book, which reads like science fiction, yet keeps reminding us that the miracle is possible for man. The chapter on space navigation — involving time dilation due to relativity-effect, faster-than-light travel and ‘holes in space’ — is as liberating to the imagination as Kubrick’s ‘2001’. Before the book was complete, however, an extraordinary development took place. Lunan was able to decipher a set of mysterious radio signals received in the 1920’s, as a series of star maps, apparently transmitted by a space-probe circling the earth. The messages pointed to an origin in the constellation Bootes 13,000 years ago — from a planet long uninhabitable. Had he stumbled upon an SOS signal from a civilisation searching for another home before its own planet burned up in the heat of its expanding sun? Did those far-off intelligences found their colony in time? Are they even now possessed of the knowledge that we exist ? Man and the Stars not only analyses these mind-blowing possibilities, but links them with possible evidence from the past that space-ships from Epsilon-Bootis have been here before. Contact with other intelligences, Lunan insists, can be a liberating adventure — or a disaster. Preparation must begin now.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

From the cover: “ The Call of the Sea, and the television series which it accompanies, is a unique record of Britain’s maritime past told through the memories of ordinary people in whose lives the sea played a central role.

As an island, Britain has always retained strong links with the sea. The Call of the Sea evokes many of the greatest of Britain’s maritime traditions, such as the history of our Naval power, the fishing industry and the sea-rescue services.

Before the Second World War Britain was the greatest seafaring nation in the world. However, a life at sea was one of the most dangerous and uncomfortable that anyone could choose. On some occasions the appalling conditions drove crews to mutiny. Dramatic stories of shipwreck, survival and rescue are all part of maritime history. The Call of the Sea includes many incredible tales of adventure and heroism, some of the most amazing of which involve women mariners who defied convention to brave the dangers of a life at sea.

The Call of the Sea is a fascinating history of our maritime heritage, bringing the past to life and painting a vivid picture of what it was really like to live and work at sea.”

At One with the Sea: Alone Around the World by Naomi James (£9.50)Publisher: Book Club Associates — 1979Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dustwrapper. Faded at the spine of the dustwrapper. Leans a little. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Maps to the endpapers. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “On 8th June 1978, the world heard the astonishing news that 28-year-old Naomi James had become the first woman to sail single-handed round the globe via Cape Horn — and in the fastest time ever. The daughter of a New Zealand sheep farmer, newly married and with only two years’ sailing experience behind her, Naomi had never handled a boat by herself before -yet, incredibly, she set a new round-the-world record and made sailing history.

At One With The Sea is the frank, vivid and enthralling account of the most amazing lone voyage of them all. Naomi tells of her despair when the radio broke and she faced months of silence; of her embarrassment at discovering — after three months at sea — that she had been confusing latitude with longitude; of her grief when the ship’s kitten, Boris, went overboard; and of the black horror of a dawn capsize. In common with all lone sailors, Naomi lived in dread of Cape Horn; in the end she rounded « that old bogey Horn » without even realising it — « I may even have been asleep at the time. »

This story of heroism with the human touch, of epic courage and endurance, must rank as a classic in the literature of great adventures. It is not merely the memorable record of an historic journey; Naomi’s story also tells us more about why men — and women — dare the elements, and attempt the impossible, in the relentless search for self-knowledge.

On 1st January 1979, in recognition of her extraordinary achievement, she became Dame Naomi James. Her award, Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire, is one of the highest given to women.”

High Latitude Crossing by Peter Haward (£9.50)Publisher: Adlard Coles — 1968Binding: Hardback First Edition. [ISBN: 0229985688]Condition: Good. Leans. Boards a little rubbed at extremities. Internally bright and clean.Description: Pale blue cloth with gilt titling to spine. The Viking story is of heroes second to none and like others who have studied it the author is under its spell. Yet he have tried to describe their navigation in logical terms, acceptable to seamen in general and sailors in particular. He denies that Viking ships were super ships and if the men who sailed them were supermen it was not in the modem comic-strip sense. Viking achievements were due to courage and endurance of a very high order plus a competent application of an essential minimum of knowledge.Notes: Size: 8½" x 6½". 143 pages.
