McGraw-Hill Ryerson, 1975, ISBN:007077756x 
ARMOUR, Charles A. and Thomas LACKEY. Sailing Ships of the Maritimes : An Illustrated History of Shipping and Shipbuilding in the Maritime Provinces of Canada 1750-1925. Toronto: McGraw-Hill Ryerson, (1975). First Printing. Pp. (5),6-224, including 16 colour plates. Illustrated. Double column. Oblong large 8vo, blue cloth. Vaison, p.5. Charles Arthur Armour (March 5, 1934,Taylor Village, New Brunswick - d. December 4, 2010, Halifax) long-time Da lhousie University archivist, historian and researcher of marine history. "In the heyday of sailing ships, vessels built in the numerous coastal villages of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island were sailed by hardy Maritimers to all the important trading ports of the world. The Maritime Provinces were one of the world's leading shipbuilding areas. By the endof the nineteenth century, over 26,000 vessels had been built. Not all wer e for local owners; in the peak years of the 1860s, the Maritimes supplied nearly one-quarter of British shipping. "This pictorial history offers a lively and authoratative account of the development of Maritime sailing ships, from the privateers of the eighteenth century to the magnificent clipper ships of the nineteenth century and the swift schoohners of the early twentieth century. It covers not only the ships themselves, but the men who built, owned and sailed them. Paintings, photographs, logbooks, plans and otherillustrations have been chosen to represent some of the important vessels, builders and shipbuilding centres, as well as to convey the romance, hards hips, humour and tragedy of life on board a sailing ship." - from the dj. Perhaps the best single general work on the history of merchant sail in NovaScotia, and certainly among the most attractively-designed. The text proce eds chronologically from the first stirrings of the trade in the eighteenthcentury to its final demise in the 1920s; brief essays (on the characteris tics of a period or trade, on the contribution of a particular town or family, on the distinctions of a particular vessel, or on the nature of a certain occupation) are printed en face with a rich selection of contemporary images, particularly of ship portraits. With a brief explanation of ships' rigs, a bibliography, and an index. Chapters: 1. The Eighteenth Century; 2. Prizes and Privateers; 3. Trade and Timber, 1820-1845; 4. The Golden Age, 1846-1867; 5.

9 BOILEAU, John Half-Hearted Enemies : Nova Scotia, New England, and the War of 1812. Paperback.
Formac Publishing Company Limited, Halifax, 2005, ISBN:0887806570 
BOILEAU, John. Half-Hearted Enemies : Nova Scotia, New England, and the Warof 1812. Halifax: Formac Publishing Company Limited, (2005). Pp. (6),[7]-1 76. Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated white card covers. John Boileau (b. 1945,Moncton, New Brunswick) long-serving Canadian miliary officer and author. A volume focusing largely on the indifferent relations between two regions supposedly at war, in Nova Scotia and New England, and the reluctance of Nova Scotia's merchants -- in spite of strong suggestions from the English Crown - to cease and desist their business relations with the Americans during the War of 1812. "[...] Upper and Lower Canada quickly became the main battleground, but in Nova Scotia, merchants were reluctant to imperil a strong and long-standing trading partnership with their new England neighbours. While officially at war, they tried to maintain a separate peace. "Half-Hearted Enemies explores this ambiguous wartime relationship. It examines the role played by Nova Scotia in the war, and the impact of the conflict on the lives of everyone, military and civilian alike. [...] offers vivid descriptions of some of the largest battles. He also recounts the human cost of the conflict: the economic impact of war, garrison and prison life, and the inevitable flow of refugees. "While the British navy carried on its operations against the US from its base in Halifax, the war also created opportunity for private naval warfare by the many privateers that plied the waters of the eastern seaboard. Many American prisoners were brought to Halifax, and some who died in the notorious Melville Island prison still lay buried inan almost-forgotten cemetery nearby." - from the rear cover.

15 BUTI, Gilbert (ed.) Actes academques Corsaires et forbans en Mediterranee (XIVe - XXIe siecle)
Riveneuve editions, Paris, 2009, ISBN:9782914214582 
BUTI, Gilbert (ed.). Corsaires et forbans en Méditerranée (XIVe - XXIe siecle). Textes réunis par Gilbert Buti pour la Société Francaise d''Histoire Maritime. (Paris) : Riveneuve éditions, (2009). Pp (6),7-312,(4). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated red card covers, lettered in black, red and white. "Evoquer la course et la piraterie conduit aussitôt notre imaginaire à voguer vers de lointaines et exotiques contrées, des Caraïbes à la mer de Chine, ennégligeant la Méditerranée familière qui a pourtant été aussi un des berce aux du brigandage maritime. Aussi vieilles que l'histoire et souvent confondues, course et piraterie connaissent une vitalité nouvelle en Méditerranéedès la fin du XVe siècle. Débordant sur le proche Atlantique et se prolong eant sous différentes formes jusqu'au XXIe siècle, ces pratiques demeurent un domaine sensible de l'histoire ainsi que le suggère pour les nommer l'emploi des termes course, guerre de course, piraterie, corso ou djihad maritime. La course, les corsaires et les forbans - ces hors-la-loi des mers - ont donné lieu à des recherches nombreuses et approfondies depuis le milieu du XXe siècle. A la suite des travaux pionniers de Michel Mollat du Jourdin,un des pères de l'histoire maritime en France, et notamment depuis la tenu e du XIIIe Colloque international de San Francisco (Course et piraterie, 1975), les études se sont multipliées autour de ces questions. Cependant, de nombreux champs restent à explorer et des pistes à défricher au-delà du cliquetis des sabres d'abordage. Tel a été un des objectifs de cette rencontrescientifique, tenue à Toulon sous le patronage de la Société française d'H istoire maritime présidée par l'Amiral Jacques Chatelle, sans prétendre à l'exhaustivité, moins encore à une synthèse. Des études de cas, autour d'événements et de personnages emblématiques, et une traversée de la Méditerranée sur la longue durée, permettent d'approcher une thématique qui reste complexe et ne peut se limiter à des réponses simples, sinon simplistes et définitives." (from the back cover). Contents : Introduction générale (par PaulBois). [Pt. I] Course et piraterie : statuts et navire. 1. Le Roi, le cors aire et la loi (par Jean-Noel Bévérini). 2. Portrait d'une victime : la " nave " de commerce méditerranéenne du XVIe s.(par Michel Daeffler). 3. Impact de la course au Maroc sur l'architecture navale et l'établissement des traités, XVe- XIXe siècle (par Ali Zbitou). 4.
