Toy 1632, Spadoni & Donnelly 1764. "Bluenose --the big Lunenburg saltbank schooner who shaped for herself a glory and a l ove such as few ships enjoy. Her likeness emblazons the Canadian dime and her name is synonymous with Nova Scotia -- in fact, with all Maritime Canada. Throughout the '20s and the '30s she remained undefeated in races and peerless as a working fisherman. No other ship has so taken itself to the heart of a nation, which fact is attested to by her reincarnation in an exact sailing replica constructed in the 1960's. This tribute to the illustrious Bluenose and her worthy successor, Bluenose II, is the deeply affectionate memorial of two men who spirited the impetus for that second vessel. With infectious enthusiasm, the Backmans recreate in fascinating detail the excitement of Bluenose's memorable races, the events and emotions of her spectactular career, and her miraculous resurrection in Bluenose II. This is the unforgettable dual story of Bluenose, lavishly illustrated with over 80 photographs, including a portfolio on the original Bluenose drawn from the filesof the late W.R. MacAskill, considered to be the greatest of marine photog raphers." - from the rear cover. Name, light spotting to covers and initialleaves, else vg. 18.00
