"For the past score of years the world has thrilled at intervals to epics of the sea, mighty vibrant tragedies of sacrifice and heroism. Hour by hour, almost minute by minute, the progression of disaster and of rescue has been broadcast about the world. In this book the whole story is told for the first time, from the viewpoint of the wireless operators, by one of their craft. We see the fascinating development of this great art as the men of the key, the'brass-pounders', have practised it. The marvelous utility of wireless is brought home ot us by the stories of mighty events in which it has played amajor part. The collision between the Republic and the Florida; the sinkin g of the huge Titanic; the rapid foundering of the Empress of Ireland; the heroic rescue of the crew of the storm-swept Antinoë by the President Roosevelt; the dreadful capsizing of the Vestris; the fatal burst of flame on board the Morro Castle on the hour before making port; these and many more sea disasters are part of the story of SOS." - from the dust jacket.

BALLARD, Robert D., with Malcolm McCONNELL. Adventures in Ocean Exploration: From the Discovery of the Titanic to the Search for Noah's Flood. Washin gton, D.C.: National Geographic, (2001). First Trade Edition. Pp [1]-288. Illustrated. Index. 4to, blue cloth, silver lettering to front board and spine. Contents : 1. The Ancient Depths. 2. The Mysterious Sea. 3. Linking theShores. 4. The New World. 5. Ocean Highways. 6. War at Sea. 7. Science Ben eath the Sea. 8. The Living Ocean. 9. The Museum of the Deep. "One of our leading oceanographers and a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, Ballard describes plunging 12-000 feet to the floor of the Atlantic, finding new life in the superheated water around hydrothermal vents on the Pacific seabed, and locating scores of wrecks, from Phoenician galleys to the Nazi battleship Bismarck. We peer from the cramped cabin of a research submarine at bioluminescent fish glowing in the sunless depths, gasp for air as the bathyscaphe Archimede fills with acrid smoke a mile beneath the surface of the sea, and join a crack team of technicians on the bridge of a research ship as they “fly" a state-of-the-art unmanned submersible over the Titanic's ghostly hull. But this lavishly illustrated book does much more than chronicle Ballard's own unique experiences: Intertwined with his vivid first person narrative is a concise history of humankind's age-old relationship with the oceans. Along with the giants of modern undersea exploration – Cousteau, Beebe, Piccard - he introduces the fabled seamen of the past, from ancient Phoenician, Polynesian, and Chinese sailors to such great names as Magellan, Columbus, Drake, and Cook. He explains how ships evolved from simple coastal craft to the most complex machines known to man, and shows how the search for new trade routes and the sheer love of adventure led captains everfarther over the horizon. He traces the development of navigation, naval w arfare, marine science, and much more. Capturing all the irresistible lure of the sea in nearly 200 vivid illustrations and a lively text that spans thousands of years of seafaring and oceanography, this is a book as expansive as its subject and filled with fascinating information, stirring history,and a full measure of the infectious excitement of discovery Robert Ballar d knows so well." - from the dj.

From the b ridge of a research vessel tossing on the wavesnortheast of Midway we watchas the majestic wreck of the Yorktown takes shape on a television screen, an image unseen for six decades ever since the grim afternoon in 1942 when an enemy torpedo sent her to the bottom 17,000 feet below." - from the dj.

Flanker Press, St. John's, NF, 2007, ISBN:9781897317181 
BARTLETT, Robert A., Captain. The Last Voyage of the Karluk : Shipwreck andRescue in the Arctic. Set down by Ralph T. Hale, with a foreword by Paul O 'Neill. St. John's, NF: The Flanker Press, (2007). Pp. (6),vii-xvi,1-302,(2). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated blue card covers. "On January 4, 1914, theKarluk was stuck in ice when the ominous sound of the ship's stern being r ipped open by pack ice was heard by all on board. It sounded like the firing of a cannon. Bartlett immediately ordered supplies be unloaded on the ice. The Karluk began to break up on January 10, and all on board were orderedto abandon ship. When everyone was safely on the ice, the captain himself went back to his cabin and, all alone, put Chopin's 'Funeral March' on his Victrola. As the water rose in the cabin, he whispered 'Goodbye', left the sinking vessel to the mournful sound of Chopin's music and hurried out on the ice. It was to be the beginning of one of the greatest feats of valour in world history. From O'Neill's foreword (and the rear cover). Very good. 12.00
