In the eastern Mediterranean, 200-tons of uranium was unloaded from the holds of the Scheersberg A and taken to Israel. Her owner in fact, if not in name, was the Israeli secret service, Mossad. A year later in December 1969, the Scheersberg A made another rendezvous.

John Masefield s dirty British coaster with a salt-caked smoke stack, butting through the Channel in the mad March days has become a ship type of universal appeal, both for its simple, functional beauty and its faithful toil before the advent of universal road haulage. In this new book a collection of more than 300 photographs has been drawn together to tell the story of the development of the steam and diesel coasters, which originated mainly in the UK and the Netherlands. The term coaster embraces a huge range of types including the steam colliers, the puffers, packets, steam flats and lighters mainly designed for inland seas, then the ubiquitous steam coaster itself, built in large numbers for use around British shores but also further afield in every corner of the world. Coastal tankers and other specialist types like chemical and cement carriers also evolved. As well as the details of the ships themselves, the book covers cargo handling and stowing, machinery, the coastal trades, the owners and builders and, not least, the crews and their jobs and their lives at sea. A hugely evocative and illuminating book to delight and inform ship enthusiasts everywhere. £14.00

As new; Mint in pictorial card coverThink of a major shipping disaster and the first that jumps into mind is that of the Titanic, the White Start liner sunk by an iceberg on her maiden voyage. However, only two years later, a tragedy of similar epic proportions took place of the confines of the St Lawrence River. On a dark night in May 1914 the Norwegian collier Storstad rammed the Canadian Pacific liner Empress of Ireland. In less than fifteen minutes over 1,000 people drowned trying to escape. They died within sight of land. The Empress disaster has been overlooked for years, always overshadows by Titanic, but, unlike Titanic, the Empress had been in service for eight years. She was inherently safe, fast and luxurious and she and her sister, Empress of Britain, had carried many thousands of people to Canada from the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Philip Wilson 1999 1st. 187pp. Profusely illustrated. m 27x26. As new; Mint in Mint d/j. The 18th and 19th centuries were a period of enormous political and commercial development across the globe. Of particular importance was the revolution in transportation and communication by sea, with the concomitant growth in size and importance of the seaport. Major ports were established not just in Britain, but in continental Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and in North and South America. The National Maritime Museum, upon which this collection is based, is at the centre of the preservation and display of Britain's maritime heritage. Its print collection reveals the firm link between art and commerce in the development of these ports. This work showcases some of the finest examples of the National Maritime Museum's collection of prints of ports from this period. Prints are analysed as commercial and art objects, rather than just historical records of matters maritime. The aim is to address a broad audience, including general readers of 18th and 19th-century British and colonial history, those interested in ports and maritime affairs, and those with an interest in prints themselves. Extra postage will be required for overseas orders. £22.00

Ian Allan 2002 1st 128pp. Profusely illustrated. Like new; Mint in Mint d/j. 26x21. In April 1912 the unthinkable happened: the pride of the White Star Line, the newly completed Titanic foundered during its maiden voyage. Portrayed as 'unsinkable', Titanic was to demonstrate that man's ingenuity could still be found wanting when faced by extremes of nature. Before, during and after the loss of Titanic, interest in the liner was fostered by the massive production of photographs, some official and others unofficial. Whilst some of these do portray the ill-fated Titanic others show the liner's sister vessels - Olympic and Britannic - subtly disguised as their famous sister. From the photographs produced at the time and in the immediate aftermath of the liner's sinking it is possible to produce a pictorial biography of Titanic and of its passengers and crew. Drawing upon the extensive collection of Robert McDougall, who has been researching the history of Titanic and, in particular, Wallace Hartley for many years, Titanic in Picture Postcards includes more than 200 contemporary illustrations portraying the liner and its fate. £16.50

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. £7.50

The bridges stitch the north and south of the river together, and are crucial in making it the unified metropolis of the Victorian era and are aiding the refashioning of London's waterfront in the 21st century. It also answers crucial questions such as why do London's bikers meet on Chelsea Bridge, who was assassinated on Waterloo and how a hairdresser save Hammersmith and a poet the Albert Bridge. Illustrated with stunning photographs of each bridge by a selection of London based photographers, Cross River Traffic is a delightfully digressive and informative history. £7.95

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. £8.95
