The Great Days of Sail Some Reminiscences of a Teaclipper Captain by Andrew Shewan Captain Andrew Shewan, 1849-1927, was one of the best known of the skillful, daring captains of the clipper ship era. He and his father and his grandfather before him lived and worked in a fabled age of great ships, fierce rivalries and high adventure. When Captain Shewan, as the last of the Teaclipper captains, set down his experiences in The Great Days of Sail, he created a unique reference work and an incomparable picture of a vanished age. He knew the ships whose names became household words; his knowledge and judgments were forged from first hand experience. He was on board almost every one of the British clippers he mentions and raced with many of them on the high seas. And he knew the men who sailed and owned them - the great· captains and the men who understood that to be first was everything and second nothing. 1973/240 pages/ Illustrated/$ I 0. 75

The Medley of Mast· and Sail A Camera Record This book covers a wide variety of rigs, ranging from praus, junks, and various fishermen and barges, through coasters, small traders, and big square riggers . . Presented in the form of a photograph album with commentaries on each photo, Medley of Mast and Sail includes a large number of ships which might not be familiar to many readers. As in any good family album, many of these pictures are old; taken to preserve scenes as well as ships. Thus the ships are presented as they really were. As the famous, the infamous, and the unknown sailed and moored together in decades long past, they come together once more in these pages. 1976/ 330 pages/ Illustrated/ $21.95
