OFFLEY, Ed. Turning the Tide : How a Small Band of Allied Sailors Defeated the U-Boats and Won the Battle of the Atlantic. New York: Basic Books, (2011). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-xxviii,1-478,(6). With several black and white photos to text. 8vo, blue paper-covered boards with black paper spine, silver lettering to spine. "[...] It was the deadliest naval conflict in history: Most of the 2,919 Allied merchant ships lost to the U-boats in thewar went down in the North Atlantic, and tens of thousands of merchant sea men, naval gunners, and civilian passengers perished. The dedicated U-boat crews fared even worse: Of 1,149 U-boats that entered service in the war, 711 were lost in combat. Of 39,000 U-boat sailors who went to sea, only 11,510 - fewer than one in three - would survive the war. The losses were high because the stakes were even higher. If the U-boats had managed to sever the lifeline between the United States and Great Britain -- as they seemed poised to do by late 1942 - Germany could have denied the Allies their springboard into the European continent, effectively costing them the war." - from the dustjacket.

Toy 4115, Morris & Howland p.104.

Charles Stanley Ogilvy (b. 1913– d. June 21, 2000, Mamaroneck, New York) was an American mathematician, sailor, and author.

Based on analysis of twenty years of race diaries, the author demonstrates his conviction that "it's the skipper who wins, not the boat".

"For almost a decade C. Stanley Ogilvy's Thoughts on Small Boat Racing has been one of the great classic ... must reading for every racing sailor. Now in an enlarged, revised Second Edition, it contains two entirely new chapters: On Race Committees" and "The Olympic Scoring System." In addition the author has reviewed every chapter in this very personal book to bring it up-to-date for today's conditions.

Here you will find new angles on racing which are not covered in other books on the subject. For over twenty years, Ogilvy kept a careful diary of the important details of every race he sailed. In writing this book he reviewed those diaries, and analyzed his mistakes and successes in scores of races sailed in twelve different countries and fifty different areas. Out of this vast amount of experience in all kinds of weather, in different bodies of water, he has set down the most helpful details bearing on winning races - as well as losing them.

The author believes it's the skipper who wins, not the boat. And you'll find out why, based on facts, not theories, in this unusually valuable book." - from the jacket.

OGILVY, C. Stanley. Successful Yacht Racing. New York : W. W. Norton & Company, Inc., (1951). First Edition. Pp (8),7-185,(5) + 12 pages of photos. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Toy 4114 : "informative and readable". Charles Stanley Ogilvy (1913– d. June 21, 2000, Mamaroneck, New York) was an American mathematician, sailor, and author. "Stanley Ogilvy has for many years and in several different boats been one of America's outstanding skippers in the International Star Class. He has won the Atlantic Coast Championship (twice), Noroton Race Week (four times), Larchmont Race Week (seven times), the Championship of Long Island Sound (four times) The Canadian National Open (twice), and many others. His sailing, however, has not been confined to Stars. He was a member of Larchmont's International 14-Foot Dinghy Team which successfully met the challenge of the Lakes Team in1941; he skippered an International One-Design in Bermuda as a member of the 4-boat American team in 1940; and he was a member of the Gesture's crew when she won the Newport-Bermuda race in 1946. Besides these, he has sailed and racedin boats of all kinds and sizes, including one winter's season in the Fros tbite Dinghies. In this book he has not attempted to spell out the fundamentals of sailing, or even of racing. He has concentrated instead on presenting material which is not readily available in other books and not well known to many racing men. He has not avoided controversial subjects, but has plunged in headfirst where more cautious writers fear to tread. He says, "It will take me a long time to live down this book. After what I have said about hulls, I suppose no builder will be interested in building me another boat, should I want one; the paint and varnish people will not care for me asa customer; my remarks on sails will alienate me with the sailmakers ; I h ave occasionally been sharp with race committees, which will put me on their black list; my failure to give crews the praise they undoubtedly deserve will render it practically impossible for me to get anybody to sail with me--in fact, maybe I had better just give up and move quietly out of the country."

Index. 8vo, grey cloth, gilt lettering t o spine. "Commander Ohrelius has written a fascinating account of Vasa, theill-fated royal ship whose maiden voyage in 1628 lasted little more than t wo hours, and was followed by 330 years of silence at the bottom of the waters of Stockholm harbour—a strange fate for a man-of-war built to maintain Sweden's power in the Baltic against the threatened attack by the Habsburg Empire. This seventeenth-century warship is unique, the best-preserved so far discovered to be definitely identifiable, and there is a great deal to be learnt from her. No record of the findings of the court of inquiry, set up immediately after the disaster of her launching, has ever come to light. Resourceful adventurers, treasure-seekers, and charlatans tried for neany sixty years to obtain the booty—it was known that there were sixty- four guns on board and a well-filled treasure-chest. But tools and equipment were very primitive and technical resources poor. Gradually Vasa was left to sinkdeeper and deeper into the mud until she became only a mysterious hump on which ships fouled their anchors. Interest was again aroused a few years ago when her position was rediscovered, and once the decision to raise her had been reached, no effort was spared. Under the auspices of the Vasa Committee, appointed in February 1957, the myriad problems which had to be solvedbefore such an enterprise could be embarked upon, and the setbacks that in evitably accompanied this hazardous work, were stoically met and overcome. On 4th May, 1961, Vasa, raised from the mud which had held and preserved her, was towed into dry dock. The account is excellently illustrated with diagrams and many striking photographs of the dramatic processes that resultedin this technical triumph and of the historical finds ,vwhich bring that r emote tragedy so incredibly near."

Vernon L. Oickle, (b. 1961, Liverpool Nova Scotia).

"Behind the pastoral beauty and serenity of Nova Scotia's numerous coastal communities a war is going on. On one side are the smugglers and dealers in narcotics, an illegal billion-dollar trade; on the other the province's law enforcement officers supported by an international network of drug-law enforcers. Caught in the middle are the drug addicts, their families, and an assortment of ordinary people who become embroiled in a deadly trade that destroys people's lives, and breaks their hearts.

Historically, the jagged coastline of Nova Scotia has been a haven for smugglers, a safe place to land and store illegal loot until it could be filtered overland to Canadian and American markets. But never have the stakes been so high or the consequences of being caught so severe. And never have so many innocent people's lives been affected by the products being smuggled, or so many local livelihoods been dependent on the spoils of the war.

In Busted, Vernon Oickle, a newspaper reporter on Nova Scotia's South Shore, traces the involvement of one man who got caught in the crossfire. His story focuses on the players in this war that threatens the fabric of our society, as they carry on their dirty business despite the concentrated efforts of the law." - cover.

Jane Hurshman Corkum (b. January 25, 1949, Brooklyn, Queens County, Nova Scotia – d. February 22, 1992, Halifax).

The unfortunate end to a disturbing story about the Nova Scotia woman convicted of murdering her abusive husband.

"On March 11, 1982, Jane Hurshman-Corkum took the life of her abusive common-law husband; ten years later, she took a second life: her own. During the time btween these tragic events, Jane insisted on two things: that murdering Billy Shatford was her only escape from a situation of unspeakable abuse, and that victims of abuse can be free from their past. Her suicide proves that escape from domestic violence is far more difficult than even she realized.

For almost a decade, Jane Hurshman-Corkum tried courageously to erase the effects of her dehumanizing life with Billy Shatford. She bravely accepted the verdict of two juries - one that absolved her of murder and one that found her guilty of manslaughter; she went back to school, found work in her chosen field, made a stable home for her sons. She remarried. Most of all she devoted her time and energy to helping other victims of domestic abuse. For many, she became their symbol of freedom This book describes the events of Jane Hurshman-Corkum's life between the day she shot Billy Stafford and the day she shot herself. It is an intimate look at a life in turmoil and a valiant attempt at self-healing through service to others. It is also a strong reminder that violence breeds violence and that the circle can only be broken by coming to terms with the fundamental causes of abuse - and by changing the conditions that allow it to continue." - from rear cover.

Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated grey card covers. "Three different types of 'crime' are examined in this comprehensive study of criminal behaviour and law enforcement in two small Newfoundland fishing villages. The 'crimes' include acts deemed criminal by the rules and regulations of the state but not necessarily by local sentiment andacts that violate local norms but are not criminalized by the state. The d escriptions of criminal activity and community sentiment are based on almost a decade of participant observation. Because the outports are so different from urban, industrial, capitalistic domains typically studied by those interested in crime, the study relates the unique expressions of outport criminal behaviour to patterns of settlement, developments in the fishery, thehistory of law enforcement, and cultural change.Norman Okihiro looks at cr ime arising from economic subsistence behaviours - hunting, gathering, and domestic production activities that have long been supported or tolerated in the outports. These include big-game poaching and the production and consumption of moonshine.These traditional activities are of particular interest because they have been subject to increasing regulation by the state, a situation that has markedly affected the way participants tailor their behaviour.Okihiro also looks at such conventional crimes as assault, theft, and domestic violence. The incidence of and behavioural patterns associated with these interpersonal crimes in the outports he finds to be the result of cultural contraints and the effective informal mechanisms of social control found in the outports.The third type of crime involves exploitative behaviour that stems from the historical and continuing state of economic vulnerability, impoverishment, and powerlessness of most outport residents. He describes the processes and tactics used by fish-plant operators, merchants, police, and outside professionals to exploit outport inequalities in power orinfluence, as well as the structural and cultural bases of continued toler ance of exploitation among the residents themselves.Okihiro concludes with an examination of the effect of the unprecedented collapse of the inshore fishery and the impact of subsequent government adjustment and conservation policies on the outport way of life, paying special attention to current and likely future patterns of crime and civil disorder, and offers recommendations for enlightened government policies."

Abe's interviews are northern exploration in themselves. They are both a geographical exploration, as Abe Okpik travelled in most communities north of 60, as well as an exploration through time and the concept of time itself. During his lifetime, Abe Okpik travelled through many different and changing worlds. But life rapidly took him to some otherspaces; like other Inuit of his generation, Abe hunted and trapped, travel led by dogteam and built igluit. Simultaneously, he also was an avid readerwith a knack for historical detail, a man who eventually took a leading ro le in the development of political institutions in the Canadian North."

Illustrated. 4to, green cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "ClaesOldenburg is one of the most important sculptors of the 20th century. For him, drawing is a natural reflex, a response to the world around him. He fills the interstices of the day with drawing and he draws in the pauses in conversation. Among contemporary artist his draughtsmanship is beyond equal.His drawing form, in effect, an armature of his sculptural works, enabling him to go beyond traditional sculptural concepts. Above all, they are extr aordinary works of art in themselves-spontaneous, forceful, witty. This volume catalogues Oldenburg’s major drawings for the decade from 1958 to 1968.The selection was made by the artist in collaboration with the critic, Gen e Baro, who provides individual notes to the more than 100 drawings and prints reproduced in this volume. Twenty of the drawings are reproduced in full color. Reproduced here are the early impressionistic studies of the artist’s wife Pat, the remarkable series of landscapes done in Massachusetts, drawings from the “Street” and “Store” period, from the “Home” and the “Airflow,” and the “monument” drawings. A critical introduction explores Oldenburg’s drawings in relation to his sculpture and his vision as an artist. Alsoincluded are a biography of Oldenburg, a listing of his exhibitions and a bibliography of his works." (from the dj).

41986 OLDROYD, David Arch of Knowledge : An Introductory Study of the History of the Philosophy and Methodology of Science. First Paperback edition
Methuen, New York and London, 1986, ISBN:0416013414 
OLDROYD, David. The Arch of Knowledge : An Introductory Study of the History of the Philosophy and Methodology of Science. New York and London : Methuen, (91986). First Paperback Edition. Pp (6),[1]-413,(1). Index. 8vo, illustrated card covers. "Science has played a role of paramount importance in the history of Western thought and society and many scientists have made significant contributions to philosophy, as have philosophers to science and mathematics. It is important to examine the complex development of the philosophy of science as a historical whole, and it is to this end that David Oldroyd has undertaken such a daunting task of intellectual synthesis. The Arch of Knowledge provides an introductory account of the history of the philosophy and methodology of science from antiquity to the present day. David Oldroyd follows a chronological rather than a thematic approach as he believes this to be the most effective means to a clear understanding. However, in order to give the study coherence while considering the works of the major philosophers, he adopts the notion of an 'arch of knowledge' representing the double pathway in scientific research and explanation of induction and deduction: from empirical observations to theoretical principles and fromtheoretical principles to .predictions that may be tested experimentally. The author's lucid style and treatment of recent work, including the sociology of knowledge, make this an essential book for all interested in the philosophy of science and its history." (from the dj). Contents : 1. The Ancient tradition. 2. Philosophy of the new science. 3. Problems for empiricism and for the philosophy of the new science. 4. Facts and theories : Herschel, Mill and Whewell, and the Whewell - Mill controversy. 5. Nineteenth-century positivism. 6. Logic and logical empiricism. 7. The New physics and its impact on philosophy of science. 8. The Reaction to inductivism : Popper and falsification. 9. Science as a dynamic social system : Kuhn, Lakatos abd Feyerabend - sociology of knowledge theorists. 10. Concluding remarks. Verygood. 35.00
