Vercelli, Italy: White Star, 2007. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 10.25" x 14. h/b 344 pages, condition is As New. The slap of waves against the hull, the song of the wind in the sail, the sun beating on the deck as the boat cuts through the water .. boarding a yacht means yielding to the fascination of the sea, to natural instincts that rise to the surface and to the excitement of challenges. But the pleasure and reward of sailing comes only after a long process in which ideas and handcrafts contribute to the completion project. This book turns an eye to fully illustrated accounts of the world's most important races, updated to the 2007 America's Cup, and describes the boats that have transformed the history of sailing and sustained its great competitions. It includes detailed information on who designs yachts; the criteria for their construction; and how they are built, crewed, and raced. Readers enter this world thanks to extraordinary photographs and historical documents garnered from the world of sailboat racing. This is a very heavy item and extra postage may be required.

Rough Shooting - The Shooting Times Library No 10

By Whitaker, Peter H

Percival Marshall, 1963. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. 5" x 7.5. h/b 74 pages, condition is very good, green boards with gilt lettering to the spine. INTRODUCTION - The rough shooter is a jack-of-all-trades. He takes his chances as and when they come and works hard for the privilege. One day he will be pigeon shooting ; on another 'lighting duck. Picking-up, covert shooting occasionally, rapping, rearing a pen of birds on his few modest acres, are shooting by invitation, training the odd dog and -working the occasional ferret, wildfowling at week-ends -all these occasions are part of his programme. This Shooting Times Library has been designed to issue practical advice within a very limited number of words on all sorts of shooting. You will find, therefore, the technicalities of every sort of shooting in the many other volumes this series. This book does not pretend to be complete itself, but gives, I hope, a general idea of the kind of sport a rough shooter can expect, how to get it, how to keep it, and what to do with his opportunities. You will find within these pages a lot left out and some things eluded which you cannot read elsewhere. Two acknowledgements are due. The first to the proprietors of The Shooting Times, in which journal some of the following opinions have previously appeared, and the second to those rough-shooting friends who have done duty fore or behind the cameras.

Game Fishing in the West

By Cramond, Mike

Mitchell Press, 1970. Hardcover. Very Good/Good. 6" x 9.25. h/b 162 pages, condition is very good, some edge wear to the DJ. This is the first of a series of four books on fishing and hunting by Mike Cramond, Western Canada's foremost writer on the subject. The author quit a successful selling career to follow his avocation of a dedicated interest in sport with rod and gun. A big game hunter with trophies of all major species as evidence of his skill with rifle and shotgun, his first book "Hunting and Fishing in North America" was a best seller in its field and was chosen "Sports-man's Book-of-the-Month." Mike Cramond has taken most of the species of big game fish of the south Pacific and Atlantic oceans, but he knows and loves best his-home waters of the Northwest. As Outdoors Editor of The Province, Vancouver, B.C., he won the Sports Writing Award in Canadian journalism in 1962 and in 1963 an Honourable Mention Award for excellence in English by the Outdoors Writers of Canada. It is as a writer with an intense love of the woods, field, lake and fishing stream that Mike Cramond excels. His passages make his experiences come to life in the reader's mind' A sportsman yearns to "go and do likewise" when Cramond tells in Vancouver Province where and how he had adventure in the wilderness.

Modern Game Shooting

By Willett, Roderick

Seeley, Service & Co, 1975. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 5.5" X 8.75. h/b 375 pages, condition is very good. Minor edge wear to the DJ, the spine of which is faded. An owners libris label has been removed from the reverse of the front cover. Modern Game Shooting is the product of a life-time of experience by a recognized expert in the sport who has, for many years, been shooting correspondent of The Field. This book is as much for the newcomer to shooting as it is for the man who raises several thousand birds for the shooting field. It covers all aspects of the sport comprehensively, from the planting or adapting of natural game cover to the eventual preparation of a game bird for the table, from the ballistics of the modern game gun to artificial brooders. However, it is to the small landowner who wishes to make the best use of his land, either for sport for himself, or with a view to establishing a shooting syndicate, that this book will most appeal. Roddie Willett's ardent support of the wild, rather than the raised, bird and his prescient forecast of the shooting scene in the years ahead is certainly one of the most valuable aspects of a book which will undoubtedly become the standard work on the subject in the acknowledged tradition of the Lonsdale Library.
