CAMERON, Silver Donald. Schooner : Bluenose and Bluenose II. Toronto : SealBooks, (June 1984). First Printing. Pp. (8),1-134,(2), + 16 p. of black an d white plates. 8vo, illustrated blue card covers with white spine. "The splendour and the glory of an unforgettable seafaring adventure. Launched in 1921 from Nova Scotia's Smith and Rhuland shipyards, the schooner Bluenose was destined to become the most fabled ship in Canadian history. She was relentless, irresistible and breathtakingly beautiful, one of the last in a long line of magnificent sailing ships. She was the pride and glory of the open seas. When she sank in 1946 all of Canada mourned her passing -- but Bluenose didn't die. She lived on in the nation's memory, and in 1963 an exact replica set sail from the very same shipyards. Today, Bluenose II carrieson the legend of her glorious ancestor. This is the story of two extraordi nary and beloved ships, and of the proud, impetuous and fiercely determinedmen who have sailed them. It is a stirring account of a storm-tossed voyag e through history, and of the tragedy, joy and inspiration which have followed in the wake of Bluenose and Bluenose II." - from the rear cover. Very good. Signed by Cameron on the title page. Due to its small size, shipping charges should be a bit cheaper than quoted. 15.00
