182 GREEN, Rod Building the Titanic : The Creation of History's Most Famous Ocean Liner. British hardcover in dustjacket.
Carlton, London, 2005, ISBN:9781847327451 
GREEN, Rod. Building the Titanic : The Creation of History's Most Famous Ocean Liner. (London) : Carlton Books, (©2005). Second Printing. Pp. (6),[7]-160. Illustrated. Double column. Large 8vo, illustrated grey glossy paper-covered boards in like jacket. "Launched in 1911, the Titanic was two years in design and thirty-seven months in construction at the great Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Northern Ireland. She was the biggest ship the world had ever seen, and was thought by many to be indestructible. But she sank, tragically, just five days into her maiden voyage, en route to New York in 1912. Some 1,500 people died. This book takes the story of the ship right back to the beginning, to the decision to build it in the first place. From the boardroom, we go into the shipyard, where 4,000 tradesmen -- joiners, fitters, electricians, plumbers, welders and many more -- plate by plate, rivet by rivet, turned those plans and blueprints into a towering hulk of an ocean liner. Once the outer shell was complete, the luxurious passenger accommodation was fitted out -- the dining rooms, the squash court, gymnasium, libraries, smoking rooms and even Turkish baths. The man that built her knew every bolt and shaft, every dove-tail joint, every new-fangled piece of kit. For them the Titanic would always be the world's greatest ship. Illustrated throughout with blueprints and cross-sections, plus many rare photographs of the leviathan in construction, this intricate tour of the doomed luxury liner tells an extraordinary story of modern engineering and alsoof human ambition and endeavour." - from the dustjacket. Very good in uncl ipped dustjacket. 20.00

183 GREENE, J.R. Creation of Quabbin Reservoir : The Death of the Swift River Valley. Second Edition.
Transcript Press, Athol, MA, 1995, ISBN:0960940405 
GREENE, J.R. The Creation of Quabbin Reservoir : The Death of the Swift River Valley. [Athol, MA] : The Transcript Press, 1995. Second Edition, SecondPrinting. Pp. (4),ii-v,1-109,(1), + 10 p. of black and white photos and ma ps. 8vo, illustrated white card covers with blue lettering to front cover and spine. "How and why were four central Massachusetts towns wiped out [in the late-1930s] to build a reservoir? This work attempts to answer these questions wtihout getting bogged down in the minor details of 'local history'or the technical terms of an engineering manual. Whether you saw the water s rise or not, you'll never look at the Quabbin Reservoir the same way after reading the whole story behind it here." - from rear. Contetns: 1. The Valley: Origins -- Growth -- Decline; 2. Boston's Historic Need for Water: Early Developments -- The Board of Health and Its Investigations -- WachusettReservoir -- More Cities, More Water -- The Joint Board Report; 3. The Wat er Fight: Politics -- The General Court Tries Its Hand -- Another Investigation -- A Third Investigation -- More Politics -- The Swift River is Taken;4. Construction: The Work Begins -- To the Supreme Court -- Exodus -- The Dams -- Four Towns Cease to Exist [Dana, Enfield, Greenwich, Prescott] -- The River Rises; 5. Cup Bearer to All Mankind: Effects of the Reservoir -- More Users, More Diversions?; 6. Appendices: Footnotes, Bibliographic Essay,Population Tables, Index of Persons. Very good. Due to its small size, shi pping charges should be a bit cheaper than quoted. 15.00
