Fraser was then murdered and his wife, a lady of genteel upbringing, was tortured and made to perform humiliating tasks as the slave of the tribe. Having given birth in an open boat, her baby was immediately drowned and she was forced instead to mother an aboriginal child 'one of the most deformed and ugly looking brats my eyes ever beheld'. A remarkable rescue by an Irish convict, posing as a 'ghost' of a dead warrior, saved Mrs Fraser whose subsequent misadventures in England provide an intriguing finale to this extraordinary story. £2.95

In the heyday of the commercial sailing ship when cutters and clippers had reached a state of beauty unsurpassed in the history of sail, the most important factor for both owner and master was speed.

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. £8.95

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. £4.95

During that period the steamers endeared themselves to thousands - to the commuters glad to be safely home again in Dunoon or Rothesay on a winter's night, to the tourists from outside of Scotland marveling in the scenery, or countless Glaswegians escaping down river at the Fair, to all those for whom a day trip to Inverary on board Duchess of Montrose is still a cherished memory, and to all those who still depend on Clyde ferries to take them about their daily business £4.95

This is the first modern biography of an American financial giant.Using previously unreleased archives, Edward J Renehan Jr narrates the compelling life of Cornelius Vanderbilt: wilful progenitor of modern American business. Vanderbilt made his initial fortune building ferry cargo routes for sailing vessels. Then he moved into steamboats and railroads. With the New York Central, Vanderbilt established the nation's first major integrated rail system, linking New York with Boston, Montreal, Chicago and St Louis. At the same time, he played a key role in establishing New York as the financial centre of the United States. When he died in 1877, Vanderbilt left a fortune that, in today's money, would dwarf that of even Bill Gates.Off Wall Street, Vanderbilt was a hard-drinking egotist and whoremonger devoid of manners of charity. He disinherited most of his numerous children and received an editorial rebuke from Mark Twain for his lack of public giving."Commodore" sheds startling new light on many aspects of Vanderbilt's business and private life including, most notably, the revelation that advanced-stage syphilis marred his last years. This is the definitive biography of a man whose influence on American life and commerce towers over all who followed him. £3.95

The Navahoe was rigged as a six-masted "bald-headed" schooner. She had quite powerful engines powered by a large single-ended boiler.
