WALL OF ENGLAND: THE CHANNEL'S 2000 YEARS OF HISTORY., Brandford, Ernle.
6 Brandford, Ernle. WALL OF ENGLAND: THE CHANNEL'S 2000 YEARS OF HISTORY.
Country Life, London, 1966, first edition. 
112 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Map endpapers, b&w photographs, reproductions. "(V)ividly describes how the 350-mile-long English Channel has moulded the fate of Britian since, some 8,000 years ago, the Atlantic tide-race eventually severed our island from the Continent. Through the centuries it has been the moat against many enemies, the arena of battling navies, the highway of trade, the jumping-off point for countless ventures across the world, the way of life of a great maritime race. On the 'Chops of the Channel' Britain has fought not only against the might of foreigners - French, Spanish, Dutch - but also against the natural hazards of gale and fog. Throughout the long Age of Sail and after, na v a l n e e ds and the demands of traders decided the varying fortunes of towns and dockyards of the coast - the Cinque Ports, Southampton, Portsmouth, Plymouth - and it was a passion for the 'new-fangled sea bathing' that started the growth of the ' wa te r in g re sorts' from former fishing villages. (The author) tells of the activities of the press gang, the long struggles between smugglers and Excisemen and the spread of the sport of yachting in the 'off-shore island of Europe'....No lon ger th e s up rem e bas tion against an enemy in these days of nuclear threat, the English Channel, whose last great occasion was the D-Day invasion of Normandy, is restricted to battles of trade." Light soiling on top/bottom edges of boards, two smal l bu mps to bott om edg e of rear board, very light edge wear. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor wear at bottom of spine, light fading to spine color. Very Good/Very Good

128 pp, 11 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "In the 1920s and '30s, when commercial photography was still in its infancy, Wallace R. MacAskill was the worlds best marine photographer. Quite possibly he still is. MacAskill (1893-1956) was born in St. Peter's on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia and from childhood on, his first and last loves were photography and the sea. He devoted his life to both. His own greatest critic, MacAskill destroyed 99 out of 100 of his negatives, yet left over 6,000 images to posterity. This book is a careful selection from among (those images)." Dust jacket has some very minor edge wrinkling.

206 pp, 9" H. B&w photographs, reproductions, maps. "New Brunswick's enormous timber trade attracted the first wave of Scots in the late 18th century. As economic conditions in Scotland worsened, the flow of emigrants increased, creating distinctive Scottish communities along the province's major timber bays and river frontages. While Scots relied on the timber trade for economic sustenance, their religion offered another form of support, sustaining them in a spiritual and cultural sense. These two themes, the axe and the bible, underpin their story. Using wide-ranging documentary sources, includ-ing passenger lists and newspaper shipping reports, (this book) traces the progress of Scottish colon- ization and its ramifications for the province's early development. Who were these Scots? What factors caused them to select their various locations? What problems did they face? Were they successful pioneers? Why was the Scottish Church so important to them? In tracing the process of emigration, (the author) offers new insights on where Scots settled, their overall impact and the cultural legacy they left behind. (It) is the first fully documented account of Scottish emigration to New Brunswick." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright.

PETER THE GREAT:  A LIFE OF PETER I OF RUSSIA., Graham, Stephen.
12 Graham, Stephen. PETER THE GREAT: A LIFE OF PETER I OF RUSSIA.
Ernest Benn, London, 1950, 2nd edition. 
376 pp, 8 5/8" H, hard cover in dust jacket. B&w illustrations. "....Peter is recognized by students of Russian history as the Tsar who started that country on her leftward course - in Russia his statues still remain. Autocrat and constructive re volutionary, his like did not recur among the later Romanoffs, and it is to Peter that Stalin has been said to turn for a model on which to shape the prerogatives of absolutism. But Stephen Graham does not theorize or make political generali z a t i o n s in this biography. With precision and detachment, he tells us what the Tsar did, and how he behaved from day to day, leaving us to draw our own conclusions as to the motives that inspired this intriguing monarch. The narrative is sw if t an d vi vi d, the style is easy and confident. (His) valuation of Peter has been descibed as an ikon framed in the designs and patterns of his public and private life." One slight small corner bump, a few faint foxing marks on front board, s mal l com pa ny lab el on front pastedown, slight wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor browning and foxing on endpapers, very small ink stain in margin of page 165, tiny foxing marks and slight browning on top of text block.

St Catharines, Ontario Vanwell 1995 1551250160 / 9781551250168 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good 
272 pp, 10" H. B&w photographs. "Compared to the well-published achievements of the Navy, Army and Air Force, an ocean of silence surrounds the long-gone Canadian Merchant Navy. And yet, Canada operated the wartime world's fourth largest Merchant Navy, almost all of it built in Canadian shipyards. Robert Halford provides an in-depth look at the Merchant Navy from its glorious beginnings to its unceremonious dissolution. During wartime, the merchant seamen were the heroes of the 1939-1945 war, the fourth arm of the Services. By 1948 they had undergone a quick image change, transformed from heroes to anonymous troublemakers hindering the shipping industry. 'The Unknown Navy' endeavours to throw light on the Merchant Navy's important contribution to the Allied cause during World War II." Dust jacket has a tiny scuff/dent on the front panel.

A GREAT FLEET OF SHIPS:  THE CANADIAN FORTS & PARKS., Heal, S.C.
14 Heal, S.C. A GREAT FLEET OF SHIPS: THE CANADIAN FORTS & PARKS.
Vanwell, St Catharines, Ontario, 1999, first edition. 
312 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1551250233 B&w photographs, drawings, plus large fold-out plan: "General Arrangement Standard Steamer" in pocket at rear. "The era of the Canadian Forts and Parks has long since passed into history. While it lasted, it engaged a great deal of effort and capital on a scale never seen before in our country; from the men and women in the shipyards, to the crews who manned the ships, and the industrial leaders who transformed the s h i p y a r ds from very small-scale producers into world-scale shipbuilders for their day. By 1941 Canada's small shipbuilders had begun to turn out a fleet of 10,000- and 4,700-ton merchant ships which in every way were the equal of those from Br it is h an d Am erican shipyards. At the height of this great effort the Canadian yards were delivering one new ship every three days. Not only did we send to sea a large fleet of Park ships under the Canadian flag, manned by Canadian crews and ma nag ed by Ca na dia n managers, but we also bare-boat-chartered a similar size fleet of Fort sister ships for British management and operation. These Fort and Park ships were to be found in every theatre of war from 1942 on, at all times willi ng w orkh ors es of t he ocea ns, unheralded, unsung and later, like their crews, usually ignored by historians and government alike. While the postwar survivors of this fleet sailed under many flags, they did constitute an important element in reb uildi ng th e pe ace that fo llowe d. And now that Canada is no longer an owner of deep sea ships under the Canadian flag, it is timely that we remember our achievement of over fifty years ago. It was a unique undertaking that will never be repe ated i n a wo rld n ow s o diff eren t." M oderate bump at top of spine/rear hinge area.

208 pp, 10 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated in b&w with photographs, diagrams. "The Canadian Navy acquired its first submarines on the day the First World War was declared. As well, Canadian officers served in all theatres of war aboard British submarines, continuing into the Second World War. During WWII and the following Cold War Canada owned no submarines, but 'rented' submarine services from Britain and the US with which to train its large, modern anti-submarine fleet. Finally, during the 1960s the decision was made to acquire submarines for the RCN, and Canada now has a very dedicated submarine service of its own. Perkins, himself a submariner, ably chronicles that evolution in these pages." Dust jacket has very minor rubbing, small shallow indentation on spine.
