She was a shrewd and observant child, and this book, written when she was twelve, is a fresh andlively account of the things she saw and enjoyed: for instance, they caugh t a shark, 'Then we hit it on the head until it was dead and cut it open tosee if it had eaten any sailors recently.' There is no less gusto in her d escription of her visit to Tristan, the whale-flensing in South Africa, andthe glories of Coney Island. The sea held few terrors for Lis, and althoug h she is the youngest author in the Mariners Library, she is far from beingthe least seamanlike." - from the dustjacket.

Throughout I have endeavoured to give as much detailed informati on as possible, but have purposely refrained from any discussion of the reasons or lessons of the various operations. This is where my treatment of the subject differs from that of Vice-Admiral Kirchoff in his 'Seemacht in der Ostsee.' He deals with the greater part of the period more or less from the point of view adopted by Captain Mahan in his works on general naval history, while I have tried to follow more in the footsteps of James, and givefacts without commen." -from the Preface.

13 BALDWIN, Peter SPEAIGHT, George Toy Theatres of the World. First Edition in dustjacket
Zwemmer, London, 1992, ISBN:0302006141 
BALDWIN, Peter. Toy Theatres of the World. Foreword by George Speaight. (London) : Zwemmer, (1992). First Edition. Pp (7),8-175,(1). Ilustrated. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "For over 150 years, throughout the world and by whatever name it is known, the toy theatre has been a source ofenjoyment for children and adults alike. Perhaps the reason for this endur ing popularity has been the ability to provide - in terms of preparing stages, characters, sets, lighting and lines - an excitement akin to that of the real thestre. This extensively illustrated book is the first publication in English to cover the subject of toy theatres worldwide. The section on the English Juvenile Drama studies the designs and work of the leading British toy theatre publishers, such as William West and Benjamin Pollock. This is folowed by a comprehensive examination of toy theatres on the Continent,particularly in Denmark, which still boasts a thriving Toy Theatre Society , and Germany, where the strong interest in the Papiertheater was closely linked to a prolific toy manufacturing industry based in cities like Nuremberg, Neuruppin and Berlin. Especially interesting is Peter Baldwin's study of the toy theatre in America, which provides new evidence to suggest that at least one major New York publisher produced designs that were copied directly from children's journals in England. Finally, the book discusses the influence of the Juvenile Drama on great literary figures such as Chesterton, Dickens,l Thackeray and Mann, as well as providing important practical information on the design and construction of toy theatres." (from the dj). Contents : Foreword. Introduction. 1. The Toy Theatre in England. 2. Papiertheater in Germany. 3. Dukketeater in Denmark. 4. The Kindertheater in Austria. 5. Imagerie Français. 6. Spain and El Teatro de los Ninos. 7. Other Continental Variations. 8. North America. 9. THrough a Child's Eyes. Appendix I - Pollock, Webb, Diaghilev and The Triumph of Neptune.
