This volume is the result of his practical experiences as a navigator to all parts of the world, and as an instructor in Navigation and Seamanship for over twenty-five years. He has endeavored to set forth in compact form certain rules for the assistance of those seeking to learn or practice navigation. Short and practicable rules forworking all modern methods of Navigation are given. Every paragraph is con secutively numbered so that students may easily locate the particular section they wish to consult, or concerning which they desire a fuller explanation. The author was not so much concerned to add another to the many treatises on the subject as he was to prepare a book of rules on Navigation for the school, or those wishing to learn by correspondence." - from the Preface.Some wear to spine ends and corners, endpapers browned, penned name, else very good. 25.00

'The purpose of this book is to record in chronological sequence some of the more significant highlights of the struggle engaged in by people of the Maritime Provinces in wresting land from thesea. For more than 350 years, beginning shortly after the arrival of the f irst settlers at Annapolis Royal in 1605, this battle has continued. The process began with little experience, limited manual labor and few material resources. Over the years the struggle progressed, not without failure, to the relatively secure structures such as the Annapolis River and Shepody River dams now in place. [...] This history, as initially prepared by writer Eric Hustvedt, was commissioned jointly by the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture and Marketing and the New Brunswick Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. It is supplemented by drawings, charts and photographs from various sources. It is hoped that it will serve as a reminder to all who read it of the resourcefulness and determination of those who participated in the battle to gain land from the sea." - from the Foreword.
