61 BROWN, Alan Talisman : A Solitary Crusader
Aggregate Publicatons, Johnstone, Renfrewshire, 1980, 
BROWN, Alan. Talisman : A Solitary Crusader. Johnstone, Renfrewshire : Aggregate Publications, 1980. Pp (88). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated white stapled card covers, lettered in red. "Talisman was unique. Built for the London & North Eastern Railway Company's Clyde steamer services in 1935, she introduced into a world of paddle steam- a revolutionary concept - direct drive diesel-electric propulsion. She was to remain the sole example of her type, and her story, an interesting one in its own right, unfolds against a colourful backcloth of Clyde steamer policies, politics ana personalities; italso illustrates the demands which were made, over many years, of the rail way connection passenger ship in peace and war. Fortune was not always kindto Talisman in peacetime, but. as a naval auxiliary in war-time she deserv edly gained the reputation of a most versatile and dependable ship. As an electrical engineer witn a life-long enthusiasm for paddle steamers, perhapsTalisman has held a greater appeal for me than for others. A great deal of the information in this book consists of previously unpublished material, culled not only from BR, English Electric Company and other records, both official and unofficial, but also from conversations and correspondence withofficials, officers and crew who were concerned with, or sailed on. the sh ip. I hope, therefore, that my attempt to place this controversial ship in true perspective will ensure for her a rightful place in the annals of the Clyde steamers." (Foreword). Penned number, else very good. 20.00
