202 THOMAS, Peter and Nicholas TRACY. LOCKWOOD, Anthony. Master & Madman :The Surprising Rise and Disastrous Fall of the Hon. Anthony Lockwood, RN. First Edition in dustjacket.
Goose Lane Editions, Fredericton, 2012, ISBN:9780864926678 
THOMAS, Peter and Nicholas TRACY. Master & Madman :The Surprising Rise and Disastrous Fall of the Hon. Anthony Lockwood, RN. (Fredericton, NB): Goose Lane Editions, (2012). First Canadian Printing (published simultaneously inthe UK by Seaforth Publishing). Pp. (6),vii-xvi,(2),3-272, + 8 p. of black and white plates. Illustrated. 8vo, black cloth with gilt titles to spine. "On June 1, 1823, the Honourable Anthony Lockwood, a member of New Brunswi ck's Executive Council, dictated a proclamation in Fredericton's public square. He then took to his horse, galloped through the streets, and, brandishing a pair of sawn-off pistols, declared that he was overthrowing the government. Lockwood's one-man coup d'etat failed. Arrested by the High Sheriff,he was jailed and later declared mad. Officially removed from office in No vember 1825, he fled home to England. But who was Anthony Lockwood? Much ofthis story has been lost -- in fact, Lockwood himself destroyed many of th e records. Forced into the British Navy off of a slave ship, he rose to therank of Master. He was commended for bravery in action against the French; shipwrecked and imprisoned in France; appointed master attendant of the na val yard at Bridgetown, Barbados, during the year the slave trade was abolished; and served as a hydrographer in the English Channel and the West Indies. In 1814 he began a marine survey of Nova Scotia and the Bay of Fundy. Against all odds, he managed to finesse a treasury appointment as Surveyor General of New Brunswick. Despite being out of step with polite Loyalist society, he threw himself into the job of developing the province and settlingits immigrants, becoming the right-hand man of the Lieutenant Governor, Ge neral George Stracey Smyth. He lost it all on that summer day in 1823. Herefor the first time is the spectacular story of that astonishing rise and t umultuous fall." - from the dustjacket.

TREVELYAN, Mary. I'll Walk Beside You : Letters from Belgium : September 1944 – May 1945. London, New York, Toronto : Longmans, Green and Co., (1946).First Edition. Pp [1]-111,(1), frontis + 8 p plates. Small 8vo, green clot h, maroon lettering to front board and spine. “This book consists of seventeen letters written from Brussels between September 1944 and May 1945. MissTrevelyan went out to the B.L.A., for the Y.M.C.A., as a " programme " spe cialist and became Programme Director of the largest Y.M.C.A. Leave Hostel in Brussels for the front-line troops. During the eight months she writes about, over 50,000 men came to the Hotel Albert (one of the peace-time luxury hotels in Brussels), each staying for 48 hours. They came straight from the front and bitter fighting, and returned again to the slit trenches, the intense cold, the horrors of modern warfare, after their short rest. The first three letters give a vivid account of a journey by Convoy (the last convoy, incidentally to land on the famous Normandy Beaches) through the areasof northern France so recently devastated by the rapid retreat of the Germ ans in the face of our invasion. About half of the letters describe our fighting troops and few people have had her unique opportunity of meeting withso many of our men from every part of the British Isles. These letters sho uld be of particular interest to all those whose relatives have fought withthe B.L.A. and who are how coming home, for they give a real picture of th e courage and endurance of the British troops at the climax of the war in Europe. But the letters are not only about the troops. Miss Trevelyan has made good use of months spent in Belgium and gives first-hand accounts of thepost-occupation problems of that country as she saw them during the winter after the Germans had gone.” - from the dj.

TUNSTALL, Brian. The Realities of Naval History. London: George Allen & Unwin, (1936). First Edition. Pp 224. 8vo, blue cloth. A post-jingo analysis of Britain's naval history that clears away the patriotic filters through which the subject is usually seen, in order to present the actual dynamics ofnaval strategy and tactics. Cleverly written, too: "To many members of the British Empire naval History still remains a strange compound of prejudice , sentimentality, and archaeological chit-chat. Fleets loom up with grand but disconcerting irrelevance out of the mist of 'our naval heritage,' commanded by weird figures grasping bowls, whips, brooms, and tumblers of grog."-from the Preface. 20 chapters including: 1. The Narrow Sea; 4. The Spanis h War; 6. Ship Money; 8. The Age of Pepys; 10. The Spanish Succession; 11. The Hanoverian Succession and Colonial Rivalry; 12. The Seven Years War; 13.

(4),v-x,1-293,(1), portrait frontispiece., + 11 leaves of plates. 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. The story of Byng's loss of the island of Minorca to France during the Seven Years' War, and his eventual execution. Byng was the governor of Newfoundland in the 1740s. "Admiral Byng has had to wait a long time for his vindication. Although he lingers in the memory of most of us as the unlucky Admiral who was shot, in the words of Voltaire, 'to encourage the others,' there was always a feeling that the sentence was not wholly undeserved. Mr. Tunstall now gives the whole story. He has unravelled the complicated threadof political intrigue which entangled the affair, and brings in a verdict with which few will quarrel. The book is at once a study in naval history and the story of a cause célèbre, in which the chief actors and the parts they played are described with vivacity and fidelity." - from the dj [not with this copy]. Chapters : 1. The Legend; 2. The Man; 3. The Navy, Politics and Public Opinion; 4. The Seven Years' War; 5. Admiral Byng Sets Sail; 6. Gibraltar; 7. Minorca; 8. The Battle; 9. The Council of War; 10.

VILLIERS, Alan & Henri PICARD. The Bounty Ships of France : The Story of the French Cape Horn Sailing Ships. L.: Patrick Stephens Ltd., (1972). First UK Edition. Pp (7),8-240. Illustrated. Lg 8vo, blue cloth. 'The French Parliament and people subsidised the great sailing-ships of the Merchant Marinebecause they believed in them as a national asset. The Bounty Ships of Fra nce tells for the first time in English the story of these beautiful ships which were such a distinctive feature of the French Merchant Marine between1870 and 1920. They were called "bounty ships" because of the mileage and building bounties (or subsidies) their owners were paid by the State. France had many overseas possessions, many cargoes, and the sailers were the most economical means of moving the cargoes and of creating and maintaining a reserve of splendid, fearless seamen for the navy in time of war. All French merchant seamen were naval reservists at 21 and qualified for a pension at 50. THe law said that French ships must be manned by French nationals and, to keep them so, regualtion and economic assistance were necessary. The French seaman's desertion rate was the lowest in the world, the British the highest. French seamen were weel fed; their building bounties allowed owners to build in ample room for crews, and aften a shelter-deck besides. Here the men could work the gear without being swept overboard and drowned, and the ships could fightto windward through vicious seas without being overwhelmed. The sailing bounties allowed ships to be sailed by kindlier routes which avoided the killing slog against the endless murderous westerlies of the wintry Horn." from the dj. Vg in dj. 40.00
