BEDNALL, WARREN
Strange Sea Road: The Story of a Sea Venture
Jonathan Cape, London, 1936. First Edition, Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. The four-masted barque 'C. B. Pedersen' is one of the last of her race. After centuries of shipping under sail there are now in the whole world only nineteen of the old windjammers left in commission. Indeed one hesitates to state a specific number for fear that already it may be still further reduced. Even during this last voyage of the Pedersen two more old sailers have been broken up. But it is with colours flying that they leave us to ships that are larger, faster and rather more dependable, but which lack the sleek lines, the graceful majesty and the romance of the wind-ships. Such sailers as are now left are owned mostly by Scandinavians. There is something rather fitting in the fact that these sons of the Vikings should be the last to relinquish their love for ships under sail. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 255 pages. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. Silver titles spine. green cloth; illustrated by b/w. photo's.. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Ships & the Sea; Sailing Ships; Windjammers; Sailing ; 1930s; Travel & Places. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request. Inventory No: 3850.

Yorkshire Archaeological Society Record Series Volume CV: The First Order Book of the Hull Trinity House 1632-1665
Yorkshire Archaeological Society, Yorkshire, 1942. First Edition, Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. from the 34-page introduction: "The Guild or Fraternity of Masters and Pilots, Seamen of the Trinity House of Kingston upon Hull is one of the oldest and most interesting corporations in England, Its history is too long to be written as the introduction to the first of its longer records to be published. I propose to confine myself in the present introduction to such particulars of the history and functions of the guild as will help the reader more fully to understand the record now set before him. Although sometimes regarded, even in Hull, as a sort of “branch office" of the London Trinity House, the Hull Trinity House is, and always has been, an independent body, which, although its charter of incorporation is later than that of the London Trinity House, may well claim to be the elder of the two, Long before its formal incorporation, the Hull Trinity House was a recognised guild, exercising many of those functions which it was later authorised by charter to perform.
