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 £15.50

A n excellent unmarked copy; Fine in Fine pictorial card cover Captain Hardberger used every trick, tool and tactic at his disposal to right wrongs and out-pirate pirates in this exposé of the seedy underworld of international shipping. As a professional ship extractor, he risked death and imprisonment in dangerous third-world ports to steal ships from modern buccaneers and corrupt governments and deliver them back to their rightful owners. In the course of his adventures, he's had to outwit resourceful crime families, subdue armed soldiers, and turn the tables on clever con artists. He's escaped imprisonment in Venezuela and avoided death at the hands of the Russian mafia. Because he shuns the use of force, the ingenious methods he used to accomplish his missions are the stuff of legend. Hs employed a witch doctor in Haiti, tricked armed guards off a ship in Honduras, and rented a brothel in Mexico, all to thwart the designs of ship-thieves. The book offers a rare view on the underbelly of ocean shipping, where all power comes from the barrel of a gun, and the only law is the law of survival. £4.95

22863. McCREERY, Cindy: PORTS OF THE WORLD. Prints from the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. c 1700-1870.

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.

22589. McDOUGALL, Robert & GARDINER, Robin: TRANSATLANTIC LINERS. In Picture Postcards.

Ian Allan 2004 1st 128pp. Profusely illustrated. Like new; Mint in Near-Mint 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. £6.95
