ADMIRAL ARLEIGH (31-KNOT) BURKE The Story of a Fighting Sailor
, Bantam Books 1985, . Ill.: black-&-white illustrations. Mass market paperback format in Bantam War Book series. pp. viii, 270. First published in 1962 by Chilton Books, this is the first printing of this title in this series. ISBN 0553249843
¶ "In 'this man's Navy', one commander stood out among the brave company - a matchless combat leader, a shrewd strategist, a master at sensing the most dangerous battle zones and then propelling himself into the heat. He was Arleigh '31-knot' Burke, one of the most decorated officers of the Pacific Theatre in World War II and Korea." This copy inscribed on preliminary page to Muriel and Gordon McLintcok "with all very best wishes possible" and signed "Arleigh Burke". Tabbed on to the inside front cover is a typed personal letter, signed by Burke, addressed to Admiral McLintock, in which he praises his wife's cooking, observing: "I can understand having a beautiful wife but I can not [sic] understand how any man, even a sailor, could be so fortunate as to have found a beautiful cook." Adm. McLintock was the retired Superintendant of the United States Merchant Marine Academy at King's Point, NY. Books signed by Adm. Burke are relatively scarce, making this an exceptional item containing, as it does, this personal letter also signed by the admiral. Burke died in 1996. Being a 30-year-old mass market paperback it is not suprising that the stiff illustrated covers are creased, and that there is a small tear at the base of the spine and a small stain on the foredge of the text block. Otherwise, the book is still in good condition.

London, Printed for J. Wright 1807, hb. Bound in original printer's boards. 8vo, pp.230,304,186
¶ "The Annual Register" is, according to Wikipedia, "a long-established reference work, written and published each year, which records and analyses the year's major events, developments, and trends throughout the world." It was founded by Dodsley and first appeared in 1758 under the editorship of Edmund Burke. The first volume appeared on May 15, 1759, and it has been published continuously since that date. Matthew Prior described it as "the best and most comprehensive of all the periodical works, without any admixture of their trash, or any tediousness of detail." Our copy is divided into 12 parts, in this order: "The History of Europe", pp. 1-230; "The Chronicle", pp. 1-59; "Appendix to the Chronicle" pp. 60-135; expenses of Parliament, births for the year 1773, as well as marriages, deaths, principal promotions, etc.); "State Papers", pp. 136-304 (with Supplement, pp. 221-233); "Characters", (brief biographies of famous personages of the time) pp. 1-58; "Natural History", pp. 59-84; "Useful Projects", pp. 85-109; "Antiquities", pp. 110-126; "Miscellaneous Essays", pp. 127-144; "Poetry", pp. 145-161 (works by Peter Pindar, William Roscoe and others); "Account of Books for 1773", pp. 162-186", "The Contents" (unpaginated - a table of contents). The paper spine label is chipped, the boards are rubbed at the corners, and they show some soiling. The binding is tight. Occasional marginal soiling, else contents otherwise clean and tight. A good plus copy.

[STEUBEN, FRIEDRICH WILHELM AUGUST HEINRICH FERDINAND] [AKA BARON VON STEUBEN]
BARON STEUBEN'S RESIDENCE, 1802
Tokyo, Japan, , . Ill.: steel engraving. The engraving is reproduced on unwatermarked paper and measures 22.5 x 14 cms. The image measures 12 x 13 cms.
¶ Baron von Steuben (1730-1794) was a Prussian and American military officer, who served during the final years of the American Revolution as George Washington's Chief of Staff. He is credited with being one of the fathers of the Continental Army in the Revolutionary War, teaching the raw Colonial troops the essentials of military drills, tactics, and discipline. His book, "Regulations for the Order and Discipline of the Troops of the United States" served as a standard manual until the Civil War. In very small type, just to the lower right of the image, is printed the name "Rich'd H. Pease", which could be no other than the American artist, and printer, Richard H. Pease (1813 - 1869). Our copy of this engraving is a trifle foxed but the image is bright and unmarked.

¶ In January and March of 1992, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation aired a three-part "documentary" entitled "The Valour and the Horror" which was said to recount three elements of Canada's participation in World War Two. The second episode, entitled "Death by Moonlight: Bomber Command", set off a firestorm of protest by veterans and historians over what they viewed as the CBC's biased and unfair description of events relating to the Allied bombing of Germany. A class action was brought on behalf of the veterans, against the CBC, and its co-producers. This book sets out the plaintiffs' Statement of Claim, and provides additional background information.
