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.
