5 CORNFORD, L. Cope Paravane Adventure. no dj.
Hodder and Stoughton, London, 1919, 
CORNFORD, L. Cope. The Paravane Adventure. London : Hodder and Stoughton, n.d (Author's Note dated October 1919). Pp 278. Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth. An examination of paravane anti-mine operations undertaken by the Royal Navy during the Great War, and of the role played by Commander C. Dennis Burney in their development. Illustrated with contemporary photographs. "For some time before the conclusion of the Armistice, the present writer, as a student of naval affairs, could not but remark what was evidently a weakening of the German submarine offensive, and an absence of losses by mine. There were evidently forces at work of which he knew not, nor sought to know. But that a new spirit was abroad, the storm- ing of Zeebrugge and the blocking of Ostend sufficiently demonstrated. Of the Paravane he had once heard the name, when the captain of a convoying cruiser told him that the boatswain complained that the Paravane ' caught fish.' Why the captain seemed to think the circumstance amusing, I did not know, having then no conception of the Paravane, nor did the captain explain. " - from the introduction. Clothworn (especially at spine), front inner hinge shaky, two bookplates, penne d name, else vg. 85.00
