Breedon 2002 1st. 214pp. Profusely illustrated. 26x20. as New; Mint in Mint d/j d/j The sea and ships have played a key role in the history of Southampton, and do so today. The city's maritime heritage is an essential element in its identity. Yet until now no wide-ranging illustrated account of the subject has been produced. Alastair Arnott fills the gap with this detailed, authoritative portrait of the city's seaborne trade, docklands and shipping. The body of the book depicts the last 150 years of Southampton's maritime industry. The author looks at every side of this varied and constantly evolving business from the days of sail to the massive container-ships and oil tankers that pass through Southampton Water today. Special attention is given to the story of the passenger liners that dominated the international routes until a generation ago. Famous ships from the great shipping lines of the 20th century are recalled, from the Titanic to the QE2. Alastair Arnott's work will make essential reading for anyone who is intrigued by the history of the city and its port, and it gives a vivid insight into Britain's maritime past. £5.85

Doubleday. 1999 1st. * 331pp. Frontis. 8 ills. 24x16. Fine in d/j. In 1884 the yacht Mignonette, captained by Tom Dudley and a crew of three, set sail from Southampton bound for Sydney.

As the ship broke up, the 300 crew & passengers clung to pieces of wreckage, eventually to be washed up on the beach, but more than 40 of them perished in the surf. John Dale, the second senior surviving officer, rigged up the ship's yawl & set off with six officers to fetch help. But his efforts were marred by tragedy & misfortune. By the time he returned, alone, seven months later malaria had wiped out almost half the original survivors. And their ill luck did not stop there. War had since broken out between England & France & on route to Madras the group was captured & imprisoned on Mauritius before finally gaining passage to India, while Dale himself was impressed into service on a French privateer, liberated by the Dutch & then taken prisoner again by the French, before reaching English shores more than two years after he had first set sail. £4.95

Ian Allan 2004 1st 128pp. Profusely illustrated. No writing or inscriptions; Fine in Fine d/j. 26x21. With the recent introduction into service of the new Cunard liner, the Queen Mary 2, the great age of the transatlantic liners has been revived. In an era that harks back to the luxury of the pre-World War 2 years, when the classic liners of Britain, the USA and Europe competed for the 'Blue Riband' - the fastest transatlantic crossing - the new liner represents a sea-change in the scale of contemporary transatlantic liners. However, there is and will remain a considerable nostalgia for and interest in the great liners of an earlier age; liners whose very names - Lusitania, Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth, Hamburg, France, Normandie and United States - are redolent of a long lost age before jet aviation fundamentally altered the economics of transatlantic travel. In their third joint venture for Ian Allan Publishing, Robert McDougall and Robin Gardiner, both noted experts on the subject of the history of transatlantic shipping, have co-operated to produce this largely pictorial tribute to the golden age of travel. Drawing upon McDougall's extensive archive of historic postcards, both colour and mono, featuring the classic liners of this era and with detailed captions by Robin Gardiner, the book is an excellent follow-up to the authors' earlier joint ventures on Titanic and on White Star Line. Ian Allan Publishing's previous book on the subject - Glory Days: Transatlantic Liners, proved to be highly successful; this new addition to the company's maritime list is certain to be as popular and help to build further the reputation of both Robert McDougall and Robin Gardiner. £4.50

24281. NEWALL, Peter: CUNARD LINE. A Fleet History

Ships in Focus 2012 1st 304pp. Profusely illustrated. 30x22. An excellent unmarked copy: Fine in Fine pictorial hardback cover.The individual histories of 310 ships from Unicorn in 1840 to the current Queen Elizabeth are featured with over 700 illustrations, many in colour. Individual chapters also cover each aspect of the company's operations including the transatlantic cargo fleet, cruise ships, tankers and bulk carriers, container ships and reefers and managed ships. Although many books have been written about Cunard's passenger ships in the 20th century, few have covered the 19th century fleet in much detail, particularly the important Mediterranean services. The cargo fleet has also been poorly served, especially with the carriage of cargo being as important as passenger carryings during the first 150 years of Cunard's existence. Little has also been written about the company tenders and the many ships managed by Cunard during both World Wars. Using original source material, this book redresses this imbalance with the most comprehensive history ever written about Cunard and its ships. Great care has also been taken with the layout of the book so that it is easy to follow. Not only is there a detailed index, individual chapters also tell the story of the ships in each aspect of the company's operation, including the trans-Atlantic liners, cargo fleet, cruise ships, tankers, bulk carriers, container ships, reefers and managed ships. The front cover of the book has a specially-commissioned painting of the original Queen Elizabeth by the renowned marine artist Stephen Card. With over 700 illustrations. £39.00

Three leading ship historians join forces to write the definitive history of Cunard's Queen Elizabeth 2, the world's most famous ocean liner. Beginning with an overview of the social and cultural context from which the liner emerged, the design process is followed from the earliest proposals for Q3 to the detailed design of Q4. The story continues with the John Brown shipyard successfully tendering for the construction and recounts the many challenges which beset the famous shipbuilder in the periods before, during and after QE2 was being built.Thereafter, the ship's sea trials, troubled inauguration and successful maiden voyage are described, partly through first hand accounts. The long career and the many subsequent changes carried out to the ship are then illustrated against the cultural and economic backgrounds of rapidly changing societies in Britain and the USA. QE2 has stood the test of time remarkably well - but, since the 1980s, the liner has gradually been rebuilt from a futuristic Modernist icon into a 'retro' ship, based upon nostalgia for a lost 'golden age' of inter-war liner travel and the reasons for these changes are also explained.Bringing the story right up-to-date, the book concludes with an account of the final voyage to Dubai £11.50

World Ship Society 2011 1st 264pp. Profusely illustrated. 30x22. As new; Mint in Mint pictorial hardback cover . Shaw, Savill together with Henderson’s Albion Line were the senior companies in the trade between New Zealand and the UK until the advent of the New Zealand Shipping Co Ltd in 1873. The founding of the latter partly contributed to the merger of 1882 and the formation of Shaw, Savill & Albion Co Ltd. Without the merger, both concerns would have probably fallen by the wayside and be lost to history. Instead, thanks to the involvement of the White Star Line, the new company prospered and for nearly one hundred years traded successfully until overtaken by the decline of the British Empire, the rise of the European Common Market and the introduction of the container ship. Shaw, Savill & Albion was considered by some to be very Victorian in its attitude to staff and conservative in the design of its ships leading to the well-known phrase ‘Slow, Starvation and Agony’. However, the company’s ships were designed to transport large specialised cargoes over some of the longest and loneliest routes in the world and, in most cases, they did it efficiently. Shaw, Savill & Albion had one of its ships, GOTHIC, chosen as a Royal Yacht and introduced the engines aft passenger liner SOUTHERN CROSS which became the fore-runner of the modern cruise ship. This 264 page, A4 case-bound book starts with consideration of the Albion and Shaw, Savill Lines before discussion of the merger of 1882 and the subsequent history of Shaw, Savill & Albion Co Ltd from 1882–1918. Thereafter, the authors discuss the company in the inter-war period, including the collapse of the Royal Mail group and Shaw, Savill & Albion’s acquisition by the Furness Withy and the company’s role in World War 2. The post-war passenger and cargo ships are discussed along with the final demise of the company. The book, which is illustrated by 170 black & white and 50 colour photographs, contains comprehensive fleet lists including those ships managed and chartered by the company £26.00

Naval Institute Press 2004 1st. x. + 280pp. Profusely illustrated. 24x16. As new; Mint in Mint d/j.After surveying the historic evolution of the troopship, the authors describe 50 of the most famous troopship disasters of the last 150 years, including the Birkenhead, Sultana, Lancastria, Leopoldville and Wilhelm Gustloff. Most were lost to torpedoes; a few to mines, faulty engines, bombs, glider bombs, or wrecked. Casualties were often appalling: 2,300 on Sultana; 9,000 on Wilhelm Gustloff, many of whom were civilians; 1,700+ on Arisan Maru, most of which were American POWs being shipped to Japan; More than 4,000 troops were lost on the Lancastria, and 445 on Birkenhead. While many of the sinkings yielded some survivors, others left no one to tell the tale. The Liberty ship Paul Hamilton, for example, was carrying 658 Army and Air Force personnel and carrying a cargo of ammunition when, on April 20 1944, she was struck by a German glider bomb. All 658 service personnel died instantly along with the crew of 76. One man survived the sinking of the liner Ceramic in November 1942 but 655 crewmen, military personnel and civilians did not. In some cases, details of the sinkings were totally censored with details only being released 40 years later. £5.95
