3 ANDERSON, Frank J. Submarines, Diving and the Underwater World : A Bibliography
Archon, 1975, 
ANDERSON, Frank J., (comp.). Submarines, Diving, and the Underwater World: A Bibliography. Compiled and Edited by Frank J. Anderson. (Hamden, Connecticut) : Archon Books, 1975. First Edition. Pp (4),v-ix,(1),1-238. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “In one alphabetical sequence, over 1,500 titles (plus authors and cross-references) cover historical works, technicaltreatises, biographical memoirs, official documents, bibliographies, and f iction for all tastes and ages. One- half the entries deal with submarines in war, but as naval combat is no longer their only use, the submarine and diving in scientific research, engineering and oceanology, and recreation account for the other titles referenced. Fundamental information on topics as diverse as ocean currents, salinity, bottom mapping; underwater archaeology; physiological and psychological experimentation; drilling, mining, and construction; underwater photography, marine life, and scuba diving as a sport; are integrated here with the victories, rescues, and disasters of battle, and the salvage efforts made in times of war and peace alike.” - from the dj. “Works regarding the technological advances made in man's 'mastery' of the sea are listed; such as accounts of bathyscaphe probes, underwater drift voyages, Sealab living, and deep diving with the use of the aqualung. The ocean's contempt of man's 'mastery' is also recorded in the literature of submarine disasters and the subsequent rescue and salvage attempts. The books in this list range over a period of more than 400 years of man's attempts to use the underwater world for his own ends. […] The books listed arewritten in various languages with English-language books predominating. Th ere is a good representation of books in French and in German. A few titlesin Russian and Spanish are included, along with a token representation of Dutch, Hungarian, Japanese, Scandinavian, and Turkish language books.” – p.vii. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 70.00

8 Arctic Journal MOLLOY, Arthur E. MULLER, Fritz ARMSTRONG, Terence Arctic: Journal of the Arctic Institute of North America. Volume 15, No. 2,June 1962
Arctic Institute of North America, Montreal , 1962, 
(Arctic). Arctic : Journal of the Arctic Institute of North America. Volume15, No. 2, June 1962. Montreal : Arctic Institute of North America, 1962. Pp [85]-171,(1). Illustrated. Maps. 8vo, illustrated green stapled wrappers. Includes: Arthur E. Molloy's "Arctic Science and the Nuclear Submarine" (pp 86-91) - "The entire Arctic Ocean has now ceased to be remote and is open to study on a year-round basis by nuclear submarines (Strong 1961). Admittedly, there are limitations to the use of a nuclear submarine for arctic research, but the advantages heavily out-weigh the disadvantages. First among the advantages to be gained through the use of this type of vehicle is mobility (Lyon and Boyle 1962). The nuclear submarine is a self-contained community capable of operating under all arctic conditions for extended periods of time. Its mobility is not a function of pre-determined drift patterns,for the submarine can be directed to any desired place, at a wide range of speed and depth. With its special equipment, such as underwater television and SONAR, it can "see" and "hear" below the surface (Steele 1962). There is adequate space for modest laboratory facilities, a controlled atmosphere, and accommodation for a scientific staff, who are comfortable and have every incentive for conducting research (Molloy 1961). Another advantage, andan equally important one, is the natural protection that the arctic enviro nment offers to the submarine. The polar ice pack that presents such serious obstacles to the conduct of oceanographic research from the surface can be used to advantage by the nuclear submarine. It provides a nearly homogeneous environment free from disturbances of weather and other factors that the oceanographer encounters in the open ocean. The advantages of submarine research in the Arctic are even more readily apparent after evaluating the accomplishments of the U.S. Navy's arctic submarine cruises during the past few years. The floor of the Arctic Ocean was sounded continuously during each cruise (Lyon and Boyle 1962). As a result of this, there is now more information available on the bathymetry of the Arctic Ocean than had been obtained during the previous 75 years of arctic exploration. We have now more data relating to the ice pack over broad areas and under various seasonal conditions than ever before. Ice and water samples, as well as bathythermograph observations, also have been obtained at various points in the arctic basin (LaFond 1960). In addition the submarine itself has been a prime research tool whose advantages have not been limited to being a vehicle for transportation (Lyon and Boyle 1962). For example, surfacings through the ice have answered some of the questions relating to the ice cover. In many respects the Arctic has been the laboratory and the submarine the instrument withwhich the research was carried out (Lyon 1961). The arctic cruises of the U.S. Navy submarines have not been conducted as purely oceanographic ventures, but diversified scientific programs have been carried out during each of the cruises (Strong 1961). It is manifest from these modest beginnings that Arthur E. Molloy's "uclear submarine is an ideal platform from which to launch a research program of rather large dimensions." (quoted from pp 88-89). Also, W.F. Weeks and O.S. Lee's "The salinity distribution in young sea-ice" (pp 92-108); J.V. Drew and J.C.F. Tedrow's "Arctic soil classification and patterned ground" (pp 109-116); L.C. Bliss's "Adaptations of arctic and alpine plants to environmental conditions" (pp 117-144); C.R. Lewis's "Icing mound on Sadlerochit River, Alaska" (pp 145-150: John A.Pihlainen's "An approximation of probable permafrost occurrence" (pp 151-154); C. Di Giobanni, Jr., J.W. Rachlin, R.F. Barquist, E.S. Dooley, T.R.A. Davis, and E.H.Pine's "Some microbiological and sanitary aspects of military operations i n Greenland" (pp 155-159: Fritz Muller's "Jacobsen-McGill University ArcticResearch Expedition to Axel Heiberg Island, N.W.T."

ARNELL, J.C. Dr., comp. Captain K.C. Arnell and the President Sergent 1891-1943. Mangrove Bay, Bermuda: Bermuda Maritime Museum, (n.d.). Pp 26. 8vo, illustrated stapled card covers. "ABSTRACT: This paper is based on an unfinished account of a wartime voyage undertaken by Captain K.C. Arnell of Bermuda in command of a surrendered French oil tanker in 1940. It is particularly interesting as it provides an insight into the problems of manning the wartime merchant marine and those experienced in a convoy in the early days of World War II, when there was a lack of sufficient escort vessels and an increasing enemy threat from both submarines and aircraft."

A new novel by the author of Ru n Silent, Run Deep and Dust on the Sea. “Now, fifteen years after the end of World War II, the United States Navy is converting its fleet of conventional submarines to nuclear-powered ships that can remain submerged indefinitely and have a capacity for devastating fire- power. The Cushing, one of our most advanced submarines whose sixteen missile silos can carry more plosive power than all the munitions used in both world wars, is sent on a secret mission to the Arctic Ocean to determine whether her missiles are effective when fired from beneath the ice. When Cushing is incapacitated, with a suspicion Russian sub lurking in the vicinity, the scene is set for a dramatic novel rich in all the technical detail and submarine lore that have entertained millions of readers of Captain Beach's other novels.” (from the dj).
