Newmarket Press, 1999, 1999 1557043981 / 9781557043986 
HACKMAN, Gene and Daniel LENIHAN. Wake of the Perdido Star. New York : Newmarket Press, (1999). First Printing. Pp (6),vii-viii,(6),3-384,(4). Map in text. 8vo, black cloth spine with green paper- covered boards, silver lettering to spine.

Eugene Allen "Gene" Hackman (b. January 30, 1930, San Bernardino, California).

Daniel John Lenihan (b. June 2, 1945, Huntington Long Island, New York), noted underwater archaeologist.

"A novel of shipwreck, pirates, and the sea." - from the front of the jacket.

"A new writing team—actor Gene Hackman and one of America s leading authorities on snipwrecks and diving, Daniel Lemhan—have combined their remarkable talent and experience to create a rousing adventure saga of men and the sea, full of authentic historical and nautical detail, including fascinating descriptions of underwater diving and salvage operations of the early nineteenth century.

In 1805 seventeen-year-old Jack O'Reilly sets sail with his parents from Salem, Massachusetts, aboard the Perdiddo Star. Jack is full of high hopes at the prospect of a new life in his mother's homeland of Cuba, but shortly after the family arrives, tragedy strikes, and in a desperate escape, Jack rejoins the departing Star as a member of the crew.

For the next three years Jack encounters storms, shipwreck, hostile and friendly natives, and enemy vessels as he travels around Cape Horn to the South Sea islands, the Philippines, around the Cape of Good Hope, and finally back to Cuba. He becomes the leader of a renegade group who call themselves tne Right Honourable Brotherhood of the Shipwrecked Men of the Star. But throughout his adventures, his obsession to return to Cuba for revenge dominates his life, and his daring actions become the talk of the men of other vessels, who come to know mm as "Black Jack" O'Reilly. Not until Jack fears the loss of his two closest mates and attempts a desperate rescue does he reaily free himself from the chains of his fury and vindictiveness.

Jack O'Reilly is a striking portrait in a long line of memorable protagonists who come of age at sea; and he is surrounded by equally memorable supporting characters: Paul Le Maire, the aristocratic intellectual whose own misadventures bring him onto the Perdiddo Star and into Jack's friendship; Quince, the first mate, Jack's mentor and defender; Quen-Li, the mysterious Chinese cook whose skills extend beyond the galley; Hansumbob, the ship s poet, whose simplicity belies a wisdom born of the heart; Yatoo, the leader of the native Belaurans. without whose heip the shipwrecked men of the Star could not have survived; and the greedy and slippery Count de Silva, whose surface charm masks a murderous soul.

The exploits of the Brotherhood of the Star rank among those in the long tradition of classic rank sea adventure novels, and Jack O'Reilly provides a moving portrait of an adolescent struggling toward adulthood as he learns the meaning of justice, friendship, and survival." - from the dj.

McGill-Queen's University Press, Montreal / Kingston, 1991, ISBN:0773507787 
HADLEY, Michael L. and Roger SARTY. Tin-Pots and Pirate Ships: Canadian Naval Forces and German Sea Raiders 1880-1918. Montreal / Kingston : McGill-Queen's University Press, (1991). First Edition. Pp [i]-viii,[1]-391,(1),+ 16pp plates & maps. Index. 8vo, red cloth, silver lettering to spine. "Micha el Hadley and Roger Sarty shed new light on Canadian and German history -- and on Canada's naval defences in particular -- by exploring the naval operations and politics of both nations between 1880 and 1918. Beginning with Canada's feeling of "Splendid Isolation" and Germany's imperial ambitions against North America, the authors' intriguing and graphic account takes us from the early turmoil of federal politics in Canada to the conflict of the Great War and the eventual mothballing of the Canadian fleet. Having conducted an exhaustive study of Canadian, German, American, and British sources -- many of which have not been examined before -- Hadley and Sarty evaluatesuch major issues as policies and practice; intelligence schemes and spy s cares; naval bills and the Dreadnought crisis; U-boats, commercial submarines, undersea cruisers, and surface raiders; and coastal patrols and convoy protection. Many factors that were believed to have been responsible for shaping -- and misshaping -- the Canadian Navy of 1939-45 are shown to have been in play during the First World War. Tin-Pots and Pirate Ships reveals the Canadian tradition of building a fleet only when needed, dismantling it once the conflict is over, and ultimately accepting terms dictated by alliance partners." - from the dj. Contents : Part One : Imperial Rivalries 1880-1914. 1. Canada's Splendid Isolation. 2. German Designs on North America. 3. “Heart-breaking starvation time.” Part Two : Whither America? 1914-1916.4.

Pp (9),x-xi,(1),1-209,(3), frontispiece + 10 pages of photos. 8vo, grey mottled boards, gilt lettering to spine. With bibliography and index. "Since 1795, when a Nova Scotia farmboy chanced upon what he suspected was the location of buried pirate treasure, fortune hunters from all over the world have risked their lives and savings in attempts to recover whatever may be buried on this small island on Mahone Bay. Andyet, to this day, all attempts have been futile. Dozens of shafts and tunn els have been dug, sophisticated drilling and pumping equipment has been specially designed and put into use, large and successful construction and mining companies have subsidized one expedition after another. But strangely enough, the mystery of Oak Island continues to defy experts and amateurs alike. What is buried beneath Oak Island? Captain Kidd's bounty? The Holy Grail? Inca Gold? The treasures of the lost civilization of Atlantis? Nobody knows.... yet. In 1958, when Reginald Harris completed the first edition of 'The Oak Island Mystery', he had no idea of the impact the book would have on this 170-year treasure hunt. With the revision of the bok in 1967, Harris became the focal point of interest in the subject. The latest attempt at solving the mystery, headed by Daniel Blankenship and financed by a new syndicate, had just gotten under way and is the last expedition described in this book." -from the dustjacket.

It is a tale to stir the blood of young Canadians and to make them proud of the dauntless courage displayed by the pioneer fishermen." - from the not-present dust-jacket. Very good.

91 HAYWOOD, John. Dark Age Naval Power : A Reassessment of Frankish and Anglo-Saxon Seafaring Activity. First Edition in dustjacket.
Routledge, London, 1991, ISBN:0415063744 
HAYWOOD, John. Dark Age Naval Power : A Reassessment of Frankish and Anglo-Saxon Seafaring Activity. London : Routledge, (1991). First Printing. Pp. (10),xi-xii,1-232. 8vo, black cloth with silver lettering to spine. "'Dark Age Naval Power' offers a radical reassessment of the evidence for Germanic seafaring before the Viking Age. The book questions many of the pillars of current academic orthodoxy -- in particular, the assumption that the Vikings were unprecedented seafaring pioneers. As Haywood asserts, 'Germanic naval activity can eb traced back almost to the dawn of the recorded history ofbarbarian Europe.' Demonstrating that an excessive concentration on ship-f inds and a reluctance to cross historical boundaries has resulted in a distorted view of early Germanic seafaring, Haywood presents a more balanced and original approach to the subject, based on a comprehensive synthesis of often neglected literary sources and archaeological evidence. It is shown that the enterprise and competence of pre-Viking seafarers has been underestimated and for the first time due prominence is given to the impressive maritime achievements of the Franks from the third century AD to the Carolingian period. This book is certain to provoke debate on most aspects of pre-Viking Germanic seafaring. It will be of great interest to maritime archaeologists and classical and medieval historians." -from the dj.

Map endpapers. 8vo, blue cloth with black lettering to front board and spine."Reader, beware! This lively and factual account of the career of Capt. Ki dd, pirate, may yet shake loose a few barnacles of illusion about the notorious Sea-Rover. Stripped of countless layers of fiction, Kidd emerges as a gentleman merchant of highly respectrable standing, betrayed by a conspiracy that reached up to the very throne of King William III of England. Here lies the story, based on contemporary documents and on Kidd's own narrative,of how a master of sea commerce that was legitimate by the 17th-century st andards lost his fortune and his life as well. Here you will learn how Kiddwas inveigled into his 'fateful voyage' to rid the Indian Ocean of the pir acy that was threatening the lifeline of the young British Empire, the shipping lanes of the East India Company. Here you will discover how he was bedevilled by mutinies, impressment and lost prizes -- and failing in his mission, how he became the scapegoat to conceal the chicanery of the men who hired him. Here also is the record of the trial that branded Kidd a pirate and a murderer." - from the dustjacket.

"The Petros Jupiter lies on the rocks, her tanks ripped open and the seas all round her heavy and dark with the filthy stuff that is leaking out of her. Trevor Rodin and his wife Karen, living in a tiny cottage on the cliffs by Land's End, have seen it all before, the oil slicks and the seabirds dying. For them the Petros Jupiter is the last straw. This is Hammond Innes at his magnificet best, telling the story of a woman who challenged the apathy of the authorities and by her terrible, appalling action sent her husband back to the sea in an obsessive quest for the truth. And as the search moves from London to the Gulf, round Africa and back into the ship-congested Channel, Hammond Innes rips the covers off a hidden world of fraud and piracy. A totally riveting story." -from the dj. Vg in vg, price-clipped dj, publisher's sticker to dj covers last line of flap text. 20.00
