2 SMITH, Peter C. Arctic Victory : The Story of Convoy PQ18. Crecy Reprint in dustjacket, Signed
Crecy Books Limited, 1975, ISBN:0947554440 
SMITH, Peter C. Arctic Victory : The Story of Convoy PQ18. No place : (Crécy Books, 1994). Pp (10), [11]-238,(2) + 12-page central photo section. 8vo,reddish-orange cloth, gilt lettering to spine. See Law 0519 for the editio n first published by William Kimber in 1975. "In the critical summer of 1942 the climax of the war at sea was reached with three tremendous convoy battles, one in the Mediterranean and two on the cruel Arctic convoy route to North Russia. In July 1942 came the disaster of PQ 17 whose annihilation was an unmitigated defeat for the Allies. In August the bulk of the Royal Navy's slender resources were switched to the Mediterranean to fight through the 'Pedestal' convoy to Malta. This was fought through successfully but at very heavy cost. Then in September 1942 the ships of PQ 18 put to sea in proud defiance of the grim fate of PQ 17. The hard-fought action that followed is described in this detailed and careful study of one of the major convoy battles of World War II. Peter C. Smith has researched his subject to a great depth and the resulting blow-by-blow account of the passage of this convoy constitutes a record of epic courage and grim determination, heroism and dogged endurance. It is a proud chapter in the maritime history of the Royal Navy." - from the dj. Chapters : 1. Political Expediency; 2. Against the Odds; 3. The Golden Comb; 4. The Phantom Fleet; 5.

The ships of the proud German High Seas Fleet fought through the Great War, to come into Scapa Flow, to internment and their eventual dramatic scuttling on 21st June 1919. Today, three massive battleships and four cruisers [König, Kronprinz Wilhelm, Markgraf, Brummer, Karlsruhe, Köln, and Dresden] still remain onthe seabed, an attraction for divers worldwide. The great British Naval an chorage saw tragedy in 1917 with the loss of HMS Vanguard and again in 1939when HMS Royal Oak was torpedoed while at anchor. Detailed descriptions of the wrecks and the rich marine life around them are a feature of this book , which is a tribute to the men who built and sailed some of the world's most famous warships." - from the rear cover.

Pp (6),[vii]-x,(2),[3]-275,(3). Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "The I Ching, or Book of Changes, has been one of the two or three most influential books in the Chinese canon. It has been used by people on all levels of society, both as a method of divination and as a source of essential ideas about the nature of heaven, earth,and humankind. During the eleventh and twelfth centuries, Sung dynasty lit erati turned to it for guidance in their fundamental reworking of the classical traditions. This book explores how four leading thinkers--Su Shih, Shao Yung, Ch'eng I, and Chu Hsi--applied the I Ching to these projects. Thesefour men used the Book of Changes in strikingly different ways. Yet each c laimed to find in it a sure foundation for human values. Their work established not only new meanings for the text but also new models for governance and moral philosophy that would be debated throughout the next thousand years of Chinese intellectual history. By focusing on their uses of the I Ching, this study casts a unique light on the complex continuity-within-change and rich diversity of Sung culture." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction. 1. The I Ching prior to Sung. 2. The Sung context : from Ou-yang Hsiu to Chu Hsi. 3. Su Shih and culture. 4. Shao Yung and number. 5. Ch'eng I and the pattern of heaven and earth. 6.

And they spent virtually an entire month at sea, observing a truly astounding array of wildlife: finback and killer whales, sealions, seals, and dolphins; albatrosses, sheathbills, skuas, petrels, cormorants, and (of course) multitudes of penguins." - from the dj.Vg in unclipped dj. 30.00
