151 COUPLAND, Reginald RAFFLES, Stamford, Sir) Raffles of Singapore. Third Edition in dustjacket.
Collins, London, 1946, 
(RAFFLES, Stamford, Sir). COUPLAND, Reginald. Raffles of Singapore. London:Collins, 1946. Third Edition. Pp. (4),5-144, frontispiece. Map endpapers. 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The life of Stamford Raffles, the founder of Singapore, is one of those human romances which illumine and enrich the history of the British Empire. His youth was cramped by poverty. At fourteen he was already hard at work to help his invalid mother. But at twenty-four he got his chance and made the most of it. Appointed to a post in the East India Company's service in Malaya, he not only earned quick promotion by his industry and ability but he also acquired an exceptionalknowledge of the Malay people -- their history and language and life. He b ecame deeply attached to them and dreamed of their being rescued some day from anarchy and lawlessness and obtaining peace and justice and prosperity under British protection. This dream seemed to be beginning to materialise when, as an incident of the world-war with Napoleon, he accompanied the expedition which invaded and occupied Java, and was chosen to be its first British governor. Its retrocession to the Dutch at the end of the war was a bitter disappointment, aggravated by domestic bereavement and physical exhaustion. But his spirit was unbroken, and, a few years later, he was given a second chance. Commissioned to find a site for a new British trading-post, he selected Singapore -- then a derelict unknown village, now one of the greatest ports and strategic bases in the world. To-day Singapore and British Malaya are Raffles' dream come true." - from the dustjacket. Very good in nicked, rubbed, unclipped dustjacket. 27.00

Foreword by Ronald Hope. Captian Alfred George Course (d. 1976). Catalogue of the Library of the National Maritime Museum, Vol 2. Biography 264. "Edward Barlow went to sea in 1656 and served more than forty years in ships of the Royal Navy and the Merchant Service. During that period he kept diaries with the conscientiousness that he applied to his seamanship and with their help Captain Course, himself a former square-rig sailor, has compiled a vivid picture of the times. Barlow is seen engaged in war at sea and in campaigns against the Barbary pirates; he narrowly escapes a charge of manslaughter, rises to the temporarycommand of an East Indiaman and loses it through intrigue and lack of mone y. We see a close-up of the seamen of the period, how superstition affectedtheir voyages, and their relationships with the courtesans of Mediterranea n ports and the native women of India. Captain Course also gives a new aspect of the naval actions with the Dutch, in which treachery by English nobles played no little part." -from the dust jacket. Chapters : 1. The Royal Navy; 2.

154 CROSS, Roy. Celebration of Sail : The Marine Art of Roy Cross RSMA.

CROSS, Roy. Celebration of Sail : The Marine Art of Roy Cross RSMA. (Marlborough, Wiltshire) : The Crowood Press, (2004). First Edition. Pp [1]-128. Illustrated. Double Column. Oblong 4to, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Britain's affinity with the sea has given birth to a long and distinguished line of artists depicting the nautical scene. This is a book about marine art, featuring paintings by one of the foremost practitioners of that traditional genre working today. Over more than thirty years Roy Cross has created a volume of work celebrating the peak of the development of the navaland merchant sailing vessel, from the late eighteenth to the late nineteen th centuries. This book is a pot pourri of fine paintings of sailing craft of this great historical period, featuring not only the famous sailing ships of their day, the names of which were on everyone's lips, but also the ubiquitous smaller craft: brigs, schooners, cutters and sloops, which carriedthe bulk of everyday world trade. Featured here also are some of the splen did specialized racing and sporting yachts which, refined by intense competition in the America's Cup races, achieved a pinnacle of power and splendour with the mighty J-class yachts of the 1930s. Like so many artists, Roy started his career as an illustrator, initially as a technical artist in the Technical Publications department of an aircraft factory, where he began work as a youngster during World War Two. During the next thirty years Roy progressed from line illustration, via colour work, to top-class advertising art for the aircraft industry and other companies. His first commission fora boardroom oil painting, however, gave him much to think about and led hi m to spells in well-known art colleges to develop his skills in the traditional painter's medium of oils. These periods of study and other brushes with ‘fine art' and artists steered him towards broader fields of artistic endeavour, but an intriguing series of occurrences finally brought him to the doors of a specialist marine gallery in St James's, London, the owner of which recognized a unique talent and started Roy on a career in maritime art which he continues with distinction to this day. In 1976 Roy submitted fourpaintings to the prestigious annual show of the Royal Society of Marine Ar tists. All were accepted and such was their quality and impact that he had the unique distinction of being voted in almost immediately as a full member of that distinguished body. This book is the first review of Roy's marinepaintings to be published. Dozens of his best paintings are showcased in f ull colour and accompanied by detailed and readable captions giving historical information on each of the vessels featured. Roy also gives a fascinating insight into his painting methods and materials, and the techniques of research and study which make up his pictures of historical subjects. This is a book to be treasured by anyone who loves marine art, and who is seducedby the romance of the sea and the tall ship." - from the dj. Contents : Fo reword; Preface; Early Days; The Navies; Ports and Harbours; The Ocean Traders; Clippers and Packets; Whalers and Fishermen; Schooners and Smaller Craft; Steam and Sail; Research and Reference; Developing the Painting; Gallery.
