"Nothing captures the spirit of the Old West better than the jaunty tunes and classic ballads the cowboys and settlers sang, songs richly represented in this visually stunning volume. Panoramic in scope, the 45 songs, coupled with works of art from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Cody, Wyoming, chronicle the stirring saga of westward expansion and reflect every facet of life during one of the most exciting periods in our nation's history. The lore of the West intrigued many artists, and the works featured include paintings and sculpture by Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell, and N.C. Wyeth, as well as a myriad of fascinating artifacts: saddles, spurs, guns, guitars, a stagecoach ticket, a Navajo blanket, and other objects that provide a vivid picture of life in the West. A lively and intriguing text further illuminates this bygone world, exploring the history of the songs, their lyrics, the accompanying art, and the development of the West. The music, arranged for beginning to intermediate musicians and accompanied by chords for the guitar or banjo, is suitable for piano, organ, violin, or recorder."

326 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs and maps. Inscribed by the author on title page: "All the best - Ted Barris. March '99". "In 1950, nearly 25,000 Canadians signed on for a UN-sponsored 'police action' to stop the Communist incursion into South Korea. They joined a multi-national expeditionary force that quickly found itself embroiled in a full-scale war. Members of the Canadian navy, airforce and infantry fought with distinction and endured months of bloody stalemate that ultimately stopped the Communists but failed to reunite the people of the Korean peninsula - with consequences that continue to haunt the world today. Ted Barris interviewed hundreds of Korean War veterans to gather their stories of heroism and survival, tragedy and absurdity, successes and SNAFUS. He has woven their tales into a fascinating look at a war that many have forgotten." Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, very light wear on flap- folds and one tiny edge tear, minor rubbing.

Macmillan, London, 1980, first edition. 
201 pp, + postscript, 8vo (8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0333262816 "The battle-cruiser 'Invincible', Rear-Admiral Hood's flagship at the battle of Jutland, and the pride of the Royal Navy, was hit and blew up at 6:33 p.m. on the evening of 31 May 1916 with the loss of 1026 officers and men. There were only six survivors. In his brilliant new novel, Ronald Bassett takes four fictional characters who served in her - a wealthy Australian, the son of a country parson, an ex-professio nal boxer from the East End of London and a boy from the slums of Leith - and traces their lives from before they joined up to their ultimate fate. (This) is a brilliant evocation of naval and civilian life immediately before and during the e a r l y y ears of the First World War. It reaches a terrifying climax with the battle-cruiser's action in the battle of Jutland that shattered so many illusions."

BIRTH OF THE BATTLESHIP: BRITISH CAPITAL SHIP DESIGN 1870-1881., Beeler, John.
15 Beeler, John. BIRTH OF THE BATTLESHIP: BRITISH CAPITAL SHIP DESIGN 1870-1881.
Caxton, London, 2003, reprint. 
224 pp, 4to (11 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1840675349 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, drawings, diagrams, plans. "The 1870s and 1880s have traditionally been seen as the 'Dark Ages' of British warship design, where techn ological conservatism and a lack of any definite design policy produced a confusing mix of ship types, with armament and machinery which were outmoded before the ships were even completed. This new book, however, is a powerful refutation of t h a t v i ew, expanding the scope of its study of the ships of this period beyond the narrowly technological to reveal the full range of strategic, logistical and administrative factors which influenced warship development, arguing that it is her e th at t h e or igins of the modern battleship can be found. The author gives an insight into the difficulties faced by warship designers in an age of rapid technological change, and sets out the valid strategic and technical reasons that lay beh in d s uch se em in gly 'reactionary' policies as the fitting of sails in cruising ironclads, and the Navy's retention of muzzle-loading guns well into the 1880s. Far from having no plan, it is shown that the warship designers of this period had a v ery clea r id ea of the types of ship required to meet the range of roles the Royal Navy was called upon to fulfill in defence of a global empire, and that the problems that the ships of this period had owed more to political, financial and admi nist rati ve pr essur es tha n an y lack of competance on the part of their designers." Dust jacket has some areas of minor edge wrinkling, one tiny tear archivally taped. Fine/Near Fine

336 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). Pictorial endpapers, b&w maps. "On a chill Easter Monday in 1917, with a blizzard blowing in their faces, the four divisions of the Canadian Corps in France did what neither the British nor the French armies had been able to do in more than two years of fighting. They seized and held the best-defended German bastion on the Western Front - a muddy scarp known as the Vimy Ridge. The French, who had lost 150,000 men trying to take the ridge, didn't believe it could be done. Nor did the Germans; even the British were skeptical. But the Canadians triumphed. They went over the top at dawn; by lunch time, most of the ridge was in their hands - at a cost of only ten thousand casualties. How could an army of civilians from a nation without a military tradition secure the first enduring Imperial victory in thirty-two months of warfare? The answer, as Pierre Berton makes vividly clear in his haunting account, was precisely that these men were civilians, with flexible minds unfettered by military rules."

FRIENDLY FIRE: ACCIDENTS IN BATTLE FROM ANCIENT GREECE TO THE GULF WAR., Bickers, Richard Townshend.
18 Bickers, Richard Townshend. FRIENDLY FIRE: ACCIDENTS IN BATTLE FROM ANCIENT GREECE TO THE GULF WAR.
Leo Cooper, London, (1994). 
162 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "...(an) historical survey of some of the most dramatic incidents of what (the author) more correctly calls 'accidental amicide', it is an occurence as old as warfare itself. It is inevitabl e that in the heat of battle men become confused and disoriented and such accidents are bound to happen. Sometimes, as the author shows, the blame can be attributed to the incompetence or stupidity of a commander who leads or sends his me n i n t o t h e line of fire of his own guns. More often, however, it is simply the result of a breakdown in communications or a change in the weather. In this absorbing book, Richard Bickers puts 'Friendly Fire' in its true perspective, using hi s o wn e xp e ri en ce as an airman in and after the Second World War to who how hard it is for a pilot to distinguish friend from foe."
