Hervey Garrett Smith was the foremost marine illustrator of the 1950s and 1960s, and his wonderful drawings of traditional ropework quickly propelled The Marlinspike Sailor to cult classic status when it was published in 1956. With the addition of a section on modern, synthetic rope in the 1970s, its popularity has continued undiminished to this day. It teaches a few basic knots--the bowline, sheet bend, and rolling hitch, among others--and splices in three-strand and braided rope. But its real business is decorative rope and canvaswork--the traditional arts of the sailor--and here it has no equal. For a rope mat, a rope ladder, a sea chest, a ditty bag, a canvas bucket, a mast boot, and the best-looking rope fenders or heaving line in the marina, this is the book of choice.

"Modern Painting: Its Tendency and Meaning" surveys the important art movements of 19th and early 20th century, from Manet and Impressionism to Cubism, with special praise of Cézanne's work. The book is a detailed study of the development of art, with some incredible historical facts. It also predicted a coming era in which an art of color abstraction would replace realism. S. S. Van Dine is the pseudonym used by American art critic Willard Huntington Wright when he wrote detective novels. He was an important figure in avant-garde cultural circles in pre-WWI New York, and under the pseudonym he created the immensely popular fictional detective Philo Vance. Wright was, however, most respected in intellectual circles for his writing about art, best known of which is the book Modern Painting: Its Tendency and Meaning.

This volume contains English translations of various stories from "One Thousand and One Nights", a collection of South Asian and Middle Eastern folk tales compiled during the Islamic Golden Age. It contains some of the best known and loved tales, including "Sinbad the Sailor", "Aladdin and His Magic Lamp", and "Ali Baba and his Forty Thieves"; all wonderfully illustrated by Edmund Dulac. This fantastic edition is highly recommended for lovers and collectors of classic fairy tales, and it would make for a fine addition to any collection. Edmund Dulac (1882 - 1953) was a French-born British illustrator and stamp designer. He was born in Toulouse and studied law there, but later, realising that his true passion was illustration, studied art the École des Beaux-Arts. Having moved to London in the early 20th century, Dulac received his first commission to illustrate the novels of the Brontë Sisters in 1905. During the First World War, he illustrated relief books; and after the war, when children's books were in low demand, he began illustrating magazines. Other notable works containing Dulac's illustrations include: "The Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales" (1910), "Stories from Hans Christian Andersen" (1911), and "The Bells and Other Poems by Edgar Allan Poe" (1912). Pook Press celebrates the great 'Golden Age of Illustration' in children's literature - a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage classic illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.

"Happy Hooking - The Art of Anchoring" is a very readable book on boat anchoring. It is loaded with valuable information on anchoring tackle, anchoring technique, tying up and rafting, anchoring etiquette, as well as the occasional anecdote - simply stated a must have for any boater or sailor The second expanded edition of "Happy Hooking - the Art of Anchoring" features: More gear More photos More illustrations More independent reviews Experience from both sides of the Atlantic Personal anecdotes based on many thousands of miles of sailing and countless times anchoring Unless you are far offshore, at some point or another you are going to need to 'park' your boat. Just like knowing how to stop your car before you start is perhaps the most important part of driving, we feel that anchoring is perhaps the most important skill you can and should acquire in boating. Anchoring a boat can be a lovely dance in a harbor, or a painful and often embarrassing display of Homo sapiens' inability to plan or communicate. We will endeavor to help you find a combination of tackle and technique best suited for your circumstances when anchoring your vessel. By outlining how different anchors work, the pluses and minuses of different adjunctive pieces of equipment, the current thinking about how to deploy this equipment, and how to select an anchorage, we hope you will be armed with enough information to make some informed decisions about what might work best for you. If you could take only one piece of advice from these pages with you on your travels, perhaps you will remember what Tommy Moran, an old salt in the West of Ireland, advised time and again: "Anchor as though you plan to stay for weeks, even if you intend to leave in an hour." "Happy Hooking " EDITORIAL REVIEWS: Ocean Cruising Club "The definitive textbook on the subject." Cruising Club of America ""Happy Hooking" is well organized, well illustrated, and easy to read. It should be mandatory reading for novice sailors and charter operators would do well to place copies throughout their fleet. This would be an excellent gift to up-and-coming boaters." Captain John Jamieson, Author of Skipper Tips and Seamanship Secrets "The single most important guide to anchoring for the modern sailor of the 21st century. Easy to read and filled with super clear illustrations and drawings. Add "Happy Hooking-The Art of Anchoring" to your onboard list of "must have guides" for safe anchoring-wherever in the world you choose to cruise " SailWorld.com "Might be compulsory reading for the new sailor. Even the most experienced will find much new material here." Latitudes & Attitudes Seafaring "This is the bible for all things anchoring." Irish Cruising Club "It is hard to imagine a more comprensive study of the topic. This is a remarkably easy book to read."

Numerous portraits, prints and photographs throughout. Robert Bacon stands as one of the pivotal figures in the United States around the turn of the Twentieth Century. A native of Massachusetts, he graduated from Harvard before becoming a senior figure at J.P. Morgan & Co, instrumental in brokering the deals that formed the U.S. Steel Corporation and the Northern Securities Company. Following a brief period of inactivity, he was named Assistant Secretary of State in 1905, a position he held until 1909. He was even acting Secretary of State in the absence of Elihu Root (who wrote the introduction to this book). After this, he was posted to the vital role of Ambassador to France in Paris as the storm clouds of the First World War started to appear, and, following a brief spell back in America, returned to work with the American Ambulance Service in France in 1914. Once America had committed to military involvement in the First World War, Bacon held various senior positions on General Pershing’s staff. His post as Chief of the American Military Mission at British General Headquarters brought him into contact with Field Marshal Haig (who wrote a foreword to this book) and many of the other British generals.
