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

Boydell Press. 2011 1st xviii. + 189pp. Illustrated. 24x16. As new; Mint in pictorial hardback cover. he ancient but isolated town of Whitby has made a huge contribution to the maritime history of Britain: Captain Cook learned sailing and navigation here; during the eighteenth century the town was a provider of an exceptionally large number of transport ships in wartime; and in the nineteenth century Whitby became a major whaling port. This book examines how it came to be such an important shipping centre.Drawing on extensive maritime records, the author shows that it was commercial entrepreneurship which brought about the growth of Whitby's shipping industry, first in the export of local alum and carrying coal to London, then in northern European trades, alongside its very successful ship-building industry.The book includes details from the financial accounts of voyages. These provide a fascinating insight into seafaring in the period with details of the hierarchical structure of crews, and of shipboard apprentices learning the trade. Overall, a very full picture emerges of every aspect of the shipping industry of this key port. £28.00

Antique Collectors' Club 2011 1st. 199pp. Profusely illustrated. 32x25. As New. Mint in Mint d/j. Tells the story of shipping companies and their ships through the art they produced - their posters. For a century, ocean liners were the only way to travel from one continent to another.

The Art Deco period allowed masters of poster art such as Adolphe Mouron Cassandre to create enduring works for the likes of the liners Normandie or the Atlantique. Profusely illustrated with colour reproductions of shipping company posters, this beautifully produced book tells the story of these posters, from early examples of posters to those produced in the modern era. £27.95

Mint in Mint d/j It is not without reason that Romney Marsh and the adjoining marshes and levels have been nicknamed the Fifth Continent, for it is all new land, created well within historical times. When the Romans came to Britain, the wide wat­ers spread between Hythe in the East and Winchelsea in the West, and ran inland as far as Tenterden and Newen­den. The business of the sea has left its mark on towns and villages that now lie far inland, and the open and flat lands, that have been reclaimed from the sea, have their own special characteristics, resulting from their origin. This book relates how the Fifth Con­tinent was formed and developed, and describes the people and places within it and around it. It can be read either for general interest or as a guide to all the localities within its scope that a visitor is likely to want to explore. £19.95

Seaforth 2011 1st. 145pp. Profusely illustrated 25x19. As new: Mint in Mint d/j At the beginning of the last century it was possible to sail from London to Glasgow via the south coast ports and Belfast, returning along the east coast from either Dundee or Leith for as little as five pounds. Those were the days when 300 passengers were landed twice weekly at Grangemouth or Dundee from the London boat, and the coastal passenger and cargo liner was in its heyday, catering both for the first class tourist as well as offering keenly priced second class fares for the like of football fans following away matches. Sadly, these wonderful steamer services are now largely forgotten but this new book will stir fond memories of the ships and their coastal voyages. The Depression of the 1930s, coupled with competition from both railway and the motor coach, were to spell the end for many of the coastal liners, while heavy losses incurred in World War II left only a few ships each offering just a handful of passenger berths. The story of their one hundred years of service is accompanied by numerous fascinating anecdotes, and the book focuses as much on the social need for coastal passenger services, the men and women who provided the services and the passengers who used them, as it does on the nuts and bolts of the ships themselves. This beautifully presented book will delight both ship enthusiasts and all those who enjoy the maritime and social history of the British Isles. £11.50
