"Orbitsville , scene of two of Bob Shaw's most successful novels, is perhaps the most gigantic artifact dreamed up by an sf writer - a vast hollow world completelyenclosing its sun, habitable across its entire inner surface. At the end o f Orbitsville Departure the whole world was shitted to an alternate universe. Orbitsville Judgement tells what happens next, and as usual Bob Shaw puts cosmic events in a uman perspective by showing their effect on ordinary, believable people." (from the dj).

SHAW, David W. Sea Wolf of the Confederacy : The Daring Civil War Raids of Naval Lt. Charles W. Read. (Dobbs Ferry, N.Y.) : Sheridan House, (2005). First Paperback Edition. Pp (12),[1]-235,(1),+ 8 pp plates. Index. 8vo, illustrated card covers with black spine. "In June 1863, just days before the epic clash at Gettysburg, a small party of the Confederate Navy mounted a devastating series of raids on the New England coast. At the center of the conflict was the hotheaded young adventurer, Charles W. Read. Serving aboard CSS Florida off the coast of Brazil, Read hatched a daring plan to sail a captured brig directly into the Union's home waters and wreak havoc on their shipping lanes. Burning or capturing more than twenty merchant vessels in less than three weeks, Read's rampage caused widespread panic in Northern cities, and brought enormous pressure on Welles to "stop the rebel pirate." At one point there were nearly forty Union ships sent to hunt down Read in acat-and-mouse game that finally led to his dramatic capture off the coast of Maine. This book brings to light this fascinating yet little known episode of the war, combining Shaw's flair for powerful storytelling with extensive research culled from contemporary newspapers, journals, and official war records. Taking readers to the heart of the action on the decks of the burning ships, Shaw offers a compelling portrait of the complex Read and an insightful new perspective on the divisions splitting North and South duringthis dark time in American history." - from the back cover.

SHAW, David W. The Sea Shall Embrace Them : The Tragic Story of the Steamship Arctic. (New York : The Free Press, 2002). First Edition. Pp. (8),ix-xi,(1),1-241,(3), + 8 pages of plates, including 2 maps. 8vo, blue spine with beige paper-covered boards, copper lettering to spine. David W. Shaw (b. 1961). A lively and full account of the loss of the Collins' liner Arctic (which collided with the much smaller French steamship Vesta) off the coast ofNewfoundland on September 27, 1854 by an experienced writer on maritime su bjects. Bibliography and index included. The 1854 collision at sea between the Arctic and the Vesta, a much smaller French steamship, set in motion one of the most harrowing events in maritime history, with enormous and tragic consequences. David W. Shaw, who brings decades of experience as a seamanto his writing, has based this riveting tale on the firsthand testimony of the few who survived the wreck, including its heroic captain, James C. Luc e. It is the story of the brave and dutiful Luce fighting his mutinous crewas they take the lifeboats, leaving hundreds of men, women, and children t o suffer a cruel and painful death. It is also the story of those who survived the frigid waters and those who perished -- including Luce's own frail son, who died as the grief-stricken captain helplessly watched. Not only did 400 people die by daybreak, the wreck brought to an end the domination ofthe seas by the American maritime fleet. Utterly compelling, beautifully w ritten, and a fascinating, heretofore little-known slice of American history, "The Sea Shall Embrace Them" is a stirring narrative that puts the reader on the deck as a shipful of men, women, and children do battle both with a mighty ocean and with their own baser instincts to survive." - from the dj.

This volume traces the two-thousand year history of the British merchant navy,from the days of the Saxon long-ships through to the end of the two world wars. "The opening chapters describe how the Ancient Britons, in contact witn the Phoenicians are attracted to distant Ireland, France and Spain. Saxon longships, armed to the teeth, carry homespun cloth and barabaric ornaments, often losing themselves in bleak ocean wastes. The Plantagenet Navy evolves into the ships of the first Elizabethan era; finally, sail gives way to steam, and the tramp steamers and the mighty liners of to-day beat coastwise and across the seven seas, becoming Britain's lifeline throughout two World wars. This long and dramatic narrative of a vital aspect of British Naval history, discloses the story one of mankind's great achievements — the conquest of the sea." (from the dj).

Carter, Esq., Craghill, Ravenscar, Scarborough. 7th January 1918. Dear Sir I have not had a look at the docks since the war, to which thestatement in my article has of course no reference; but it is one of the s tanding surprises of the riverside in London, now that we have come to regard sailing craft as obsolete, to see the closely packed rows of old fashioned wooden sailing ships, most of them looking fresh from the builders' yards, moored there. It may not be literally true that an XVII century seamen [sic] would see more wooden ships today below London Bridge - even new ones - than he could have supposed the world to contain in his lifetime; but if not, the seamen of that day must have had robust imaginations. I daresay itis possible to find out what the wooden sailing tonnage is today; but I ha ve not the necessary works of reference at hand here. The percentage of thetotal traffic carried in such ships must be much less; but this does not i mply the number of the ships themselves is not much greater. Yours faithfully [signature:] G.

Pp (4),v-xi,(3),1-205,(5) + 2 leaves of photos. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "From the days of the bustle and pompadour and the rustling full skirt to the present day, the National Council ofWomen has left an indelible impress on life in Canada. Their achievements as recounted in this book are wellnigh incredible. The outlook was intensely human, from the founding of the Victorian Order of Nurses under the leadership of their first president, Lady Aberdeen, to the cleaning up of canneries where women and children were employed. They launched the playgrounds movement, battled for a fair deal for immigrant children, instituted great schools of household science, secured decent treatment for the aged poor andthr mentally deficient children. The franchise for women and the right to sit in the Senate were won through the efforts of Council women, and they zealously fostered the arts in Canada. Medical inspection in schools, safe water and milk supplies, and departments of Public Health were created through their persuasion. It is no exaggeration to say that all our laws for theprotection of women and children are owed to their existence." - from the dj. Chapters: 1. Council and the Countess; 2.The New Canadians; 3.

SHE, Lao. Teahouse : A Play in Three Acts. Translated by John Howard-Gibbon. Beijing : Foreign Languages Press, (1980). First Edition. Pp (4),1-86,(4),+ 8 pp plates. 8vo, illustrated light brown wrappers, lettered in green, whte and black. "Set in a typical, old Beijing teahouse. Lao She's drama follows the lives of the owner and his customers through three stages in modern Chinese history. The play spans fifty years and has a cast of over sixty characters drawn from all levels of society. Brought together in Yutai Teahouse, they reflect, through the changes that were taking place in Chinese society. The strength and appeal of the play lie in part in Lao She's masterful recreation of the characters and language of the streets of old Beijing, but the center of its strength is Lao She's vision, his unerring choice of significant detail, and this familiarity with the old society he is describing, with its strengths, weaknesses, and ironies. It is this which carries Teahouse beyond the borders of social criticism and makes it a complex and living work of art. Written in 1957, Teahouse bids an inspired, lingeringfarewell to old Beijing and the old society, despite their evils and ills, and extends a passionate welcome to the new society with its promise of fr eedom and equality of the people. Standing as it does between old and new China, and deeply rooted in both, Teahouse shimmers with a fine since of ambivalence. True to its writer, to China, and to its time, it is a masterpiece of modern theatre." (from the front flap). Lao She (1899 - 1966) is the pen name of Shu Sheyu, a noted Chinese novelist and dramatist. He was one ofthe most significant figures of 20th-century Chinese literature, and best known for his novel Rickshaw Boy and the play Teahouse. Very good. 20.00

50592 SHEARD, Bradley. Lost Voyages : Two Centuries of Shipwrecks in the Approaches to New York. First Edition
Aqua Quest Publications, New York , 1998, ISBN:1881652173 1998 1881652173 
SHEARD, Bradley. Lost Voyages : Two Centuries of Shipwrecks in the Approaches to New York. New York : Aqua Quest Publications, Inc., (1998). First Printing. Pp [1]-216. Illustrated throughout with drawings, b&w and colour photos. Maps. Index. Double Column. 4to, photo-illustrated black card covers, French flaps.

"This is the story of shipwrecks, and of the human dramas played out in the throes of howling winter nor' easters, frozen rigging, tremendous seas, wrenching collisions, burning oil and exploding torpedoes. It is a story fraught with pathos and heroism, death and survival.

It is also the story of the evolution of ships and shipping, for in the approaches to New York lie the sunken hulks of hundreds of ships of every era and type, providing time capsules of the world's maritime history for the last two centuries.

Wooden warships from the days of the Revolution, coastal schooners, once majestic ships from the great days of sail, tramp steamers, passenger liners like the Blue Riband winner SS Oregon (1886) and the luxurious Andrea Doria (1954), U-Boats and their victims in World War I & II, armored cruisers and revenue cutters, rumrunners, and modern victims of collisions all share a haunting grave beneath the cold Atlantic.

This is the world shut off to all but a few of the most skilled and adventurous, but through the use of hundreds of underwater and historical photographs, drawings of many ships as they lie today, maps, and a lively narrative, Bradlley Sheard brings this historical adventure alive for all to experience .” - from the front flap.

Preface: Ghosts from the Past;
Chapters :
1. Oak Timbers and Iron Shot: The Wooden Warship;
2. The Sailing Merchant Ship: A Forgotten Fleet of Flying Dutchmen;
3. The Ascendancy of the Steamship;
4. Aground on the Beach;

Maps. 8vo, illustrated card covers. "Who sank the Rainbow Warrior ... and why...? Shortly before midnight on the evening of 10 July1985, a mysterious bomb blast shattered the peace of Auckland Harbour. As their flagship the Rainbow Warrior keeled over, members of Greenpeace scrambled for the safety of the wharf with the exception of Fernando Pereira, the organisation's photographer. Returning to his cabin to rescue pictures and equipment he was caught in a second explosion and went down with the ship. The incident created an international storm which inflamed still further growing international anger against French activities in the Pacific. With their colonial presence in parts of the South Pacific arousing increasing opposition and French nuclear tests at Mururoa under intense world scrutiny the stage was set for confrontation. Isobelle Gidley and Richard Shears have combined their intimate knowledge of the region with thorough on-the- spot investigations, revealing a complex and sinister chain of events involving all levels of French government from secret service operatives to DefenceMinister. This is the first full account of the extraordinary cloak and da gger affair which New Zealand Prime Minister David Lange called an act of international terrorism." - from the back cover.

There he encountered mysteries of yore, beings of legend: for he saw New York, the great city of the walking dead; he stood before the dreaded warlocks of the Congressional Committee and was given justice by the computer priests of the Sperry Oracle; heeven witnessed the High Security mysteries of the Octagon, until at last h e discovered the secret at the center of its forbidden maze. Of course, we cannot be sure of what life among the ancients was really like, but in striving to understand the immortal Joenes, perhaps we can come a little closerto an understanding of his time.” - from the back cover.
