81 BUCHANAN, Lamont Ships of Steam. First Edition in dustjacket
McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc., New York, Toronto, London, 1956, 
BUCHANAN, Lamont. Ships of Steam. New York, Toronto, London : McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc., (1956). First Edition. Pp (10),11-192. Illustrated. Index. Large 8vo, cream paper-covered spine, marbled blue paper-covered boards,spine lettered in red, blue & grey. Charles Lamont Buchanan, Jr. (b. March 6, 1919, New York City - d. April 21, 2015, New York City). "This exciting picture history of triumph and disaster on the high seas tells the fascina ting story of steamships from the 1780s to the present day. Here is one of the first rude models built by the brilliant John Fitch, self-styled "inventor of steamboats,' along with some of Robert Fulton's earliest sketches for steam navigation. The trail-blazing voyage up the Hudson of the North River Steamboat of Clermont, popularly known as the Clermont, is shown, as is the Savannah, first vessel to use steam power in an ocean crossing. There is also an actual page from her logbook telling of that adventure. The people of New York cheer the ending of the race between the Sirius and the GreafWestern as they strive for the fastest crossing from England in 1838. Here is the first Cunard vessel, the Britannia, which carried on its earliest o cean voyages a live cow to supply milk, and a less docile Charles Dickens who called his cabin "a preposterous box." The nineteenth century saw the beginning of the international race for passenger supremacy on the Atlantic and the competition for "The Blue Riband" symbolic of the transatlantic speed championship. America's entries at this time included such ships as the Pacific, which did indeed set a speed record that stood for years. A large and fascinating section is devoted to maritime disasters - the areat and therelatively little known. There are pictures of the Titanic disaster, inclu ding the last picture taken before her death by iceberg; the Carapathia, which pounded north through the night after the CQD to help, and others showing the tragic aftermath of the disaster on both sides ot the Atlantic; the General Slocum, carrying excursionists to a flaming doom: the torpedoing ofthe Lusitania; the capsizing of the treacherous Eastland in the Chicago Ri ver; the last unhealthy hours of SS Vestris; the Morro Castle holocaust: the burning of the once-proud Normandie at her pier, and many others. With its more than 200 illustrations, Ships of Steam mirrors the over-all sea scene - the smell and sound of waterborne traffic, tugs and tramps, carfloats and excursion steamers, freighters and huge ocean liners — and all the vividpanorama of life afloat." - from the dj.

Illustrated [with 234 photographs. Square 8vo, tan cloth. "Two hundred and thirty-four striking photographs of the port of Boston combine with interpretive commentary to recapturethe flavor, buoyancy, and excitement of the city's years as one of the two or three great American ports. After the Civil War, Boston underwent a rad ical and successful transformation from a declining mercantile home port toan important and competitive modern seaport. At the same time, the transit ion from sail to steam was taking place. Mr Bunting uses photographic studies of deep water sail and steam vessels, naval ships, fishing boats, catboats, tugs, schooners, and sloops, and of the picturesque wharves - all create a kaleidoscopic visual history of these years of change. The volume offers, as well, some of the most distinguished early work in photography, including the widest selection ever published of photographs by pioneer marine photographer Nathaniel Stebbins. Mr. Bunting, a 1969 graduate of Harvard University, is at present a commercial fisherman." - from the dj.

Steven Cade was the pseudonym of Tony Williamson (b. December 18, 1932, Manchester - d. June 19, 1991) prolific British television writer, including for The Avengers. Steven Cade's first novel, set in the Caribbeanin the early days of World War Two. "For years Lincoln P. Slade and his un disciplined crew had been a byword throughout the Caribbean for drunkenness, debauchery and lust. Banned in half the ports of the West Indies, his small, dilapidated freighter the Tinkerbelle wove its lethargic and erratic way through the islands, pursued by many an impassioned sermon from the outraged local clergy - to the great satisfaction of Slade and his men. Then it happened. On a hot December afternoon in 1939 they found themselves sailingthrough a sea of bloated bodies, a nightmare world of mutilated women and children, innocent victims of the German marauder Tamerande. Slade's idyllic but purposeless world was shattered: in a moment he became a stern, upright man with a purpose — the firm resolve to hunt down and destroy the disguised merchant vessel sent by Hitler to prey on shipping in the Caribbean. The sight of those bodies, the knowledge that they had been brutally slaughtered as they cruised aboard a peaceful American liner, blinded him to all else. Refusing to admit that his slow, unarmed and barely seaworthy freighter was no match for the powerful merchant vessel with its concealed guns anddeadly torpedo tubes, he embarked on an impossible quest. Amid the colourf ul beauty of the palm-fringed, silver-sanded Virgin Islands, he harried andhaunted the German marauder with a skill born of ruthless determination."- from the dj.

CAMPEY, Lucille H. An Unstoppable Force : The Scottish Exodus to Canada. Toronto : Natural Heritage Books, A Member of The Dundurn Group, (2008). First Editon. Pp (8),[ix]-xiv,[1]-334,(4). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, illustrated card covers, lettered in maroon, black and white. Lucille H. Campey (b. August 24, 1941 Ottawa). " From the late 18th century a growing number of Scots sought the better life that Canada offered. They faced great privations and overcame many obstacles. As economic conditions in Scotland deteriorated, emigration surged ahead becoming an unstoppable force. In this major study of Scottish emigration, Lucille Campey traces the relocation of over 100,000 emigrants to their new homes in Canada. Mythology and truth are laid side by side as their progress unfolds. In considering the factors which drove the exodus, she shatters the widespread misconception that the desire to emigrate was primarily driven by dire events in Scotland. Campey proves conclusively that, however bad were the conditions in Scotland, Scots were also being attracted to Canada by its many benefits and opportunities. They chose the part of Canada that best suited them and normally paid theirown way in reaching their final destinations. And although Highlanders rec eived most of the attention, Lowlanders greatly outnumbered them. The shipping horror stories, that have come to be associated with emigrant sea crossings, are also challenged. Far from being offered the worst leaky tubs of their day, most Scots actually sailed on top quality ships in the highest state of repair and arrived in a good state of health. This book is essentialreading for anyone wishing to understand why Scots emigrated and the enorm ity of their colonizing achievements in Canada. They were a founding peoplewhose influence and impact set them apart from other ethnic groups." (from the back cover). Contents : 1. Canada's appeal. 2. Emigration frenzy. 3. P ush, pull, and opportunity. 4. Settlement growth in Eastern Canada. 5. Settlement growth in Western Canada. 6. Did they go, or were they sent? 7. Emigration myths and realities. 8.
