St. Martin's, NY, 1987. US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 7 x 10, Fine/Fine condition, 157 pages, photos, illus., maps, notes, bibliog., index. -----------------------------------------------Tudor had to defend his crown against a formidable challenge mounted on behalf of a ten-year-old boy, who had been crowned in Dublin as 'Edward VI'. Though presented as the last surviving Plantagenet prince, the lad is generally known to history as Lambert Simnel. This book unravels the tangled web of dynastic politics and rivalries in Yorkist England, seeking a context for the bizarre events of 1487. It considers the political instability and the miasma of intrigue associated with the reign of Richard III and the first years of Henry VII. It seeks to probe the mysteries surrounding Lambert Simnel, raising new questions about his identity, and attempts to trace the roots and ramifications of the movement centring on him. Above all, it charts the progress of the conspiracy and rebellio ... Read more

New York, Oxford,: Oxford University Press, 1997, first US edition, hard bound in dust jackt, FINE/FNE CONDITION, 6x9, xvii, 240 pages, illus, maps, notes, index. .....................................................Roswell Lamson was one of the boldest and most skillful young officers in the Union navy. Second in the class of 1862 at Annapolis (he took his final exam while at sea during the war), he commanded more ships and flotillas than any other officer of his age or rank in the service, climaxed by his captaincy of the navy's fastest ship in 1864, USS Gettysburg. Now, in Lamson of the Gettysburg, we have the war-time letters of this striking naval figure. What's more, these are letters of exceptional quality. James M. McPherson, co-editor of the collection with his wife Patricia and one of America's preeminent Civil War historians, writes that "few sets of letters equal and none surpass those of Lamson for richness of description, scope of coverage, or keenness of perception an ...

Indianapolis, 1956, Bobbs-Merrill, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG- ( some small chips and tears to DJ on spine), 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 266 pp. Rush Paxton went from Massachusetts to fight in the Mexican War. When it was over, he had drifted on west, looking for something which could engage his whole interest. In the 1850's he was east of the mountains in Washington Territory, serving as a civilian scout with the Army at Fort Simcoe in the Yakima Valley. The unsubjugated Yakima Indians held the land by treaty. White settlers were forbidden to come in, but they were drawn by the opportunities the country promised. A smart man, they reasoned, could make a pot of money if he was on the spot when the country opened. A number slipped in, in spite of the troops, and some of them were picked off by the Indians. This was the way things stood when Theophilus Yates and his daughter drove ii h to the fort in a peddler's wagon. Not a» Indian had molested them, and this ... Read more

New York 1994, Sarpedon, first US edition, hard bound w/dj, VG/VG condition ( very minor dj edge wear ), 6x9, xvii, 238 pages, illus, map, notes, index. ......................................................................... It has generally been assumed by historians of the Second World War that the Americans were caught completely unawares by the last great German offensive - the drive into the Ardennes in December, 1944, known as the Battle of the Bulge. But were they in fact caught unawares? In this remarkable reappraisal of those hectic days which preceded the last Christmas of the War, Charles Whiting argues that the answer is very probably that they were not. Which immediately poses the question: `If the Americans knew that the Germans were coming, why didn't they reinforce the troops on the weakly held Ardennes sector of the front line?' Why indeed! What is certain is that ever since the end of the Second World War the guardians of the files relating to the Bat ... Read more

Illustrated w/ black and white photographs, maps. appendices, bibliog., index ----------------------------When the fighting ended in Europe in May 1945, the world focused its attention on Japan and the forthcoming invasion of the Land of the Rising Sun. There was still another war to end. In Europe, however, death still hovered over the land. Many details of this book have never before been published. Buttressed by more than 100 maps and photographs, it is the first account of the fall of the Third Reich and what happened to its soldiers as the nations that had been forcibly made a part of Hitler's satanic empire exacted their retribution. Here are the stories of quite ordinary people over whom there swept a destructive war and who have not forgotten those events although they occurred more than forty years ago. These are not merely the stories of what happened to the Germans—who had ... Read more

Annapolis 1988, Naval Institute pr, US 1st edition , hard bound with DJ, VG/VG condition, 6x9, xiii, 321 pages, illus, maps, appendice, bibliog. ------------------------------------------------------------In World War I, before the days of unrestricted submarine warfare, merchant raiders adhered to a chivalric code of conduct. They were dauntless in their pursuit of enemy merchant ships yet courteous to the crews they captured, and their adventures were eagerly followed by the public on both sides. The last of these gentlemen-of-war, the German cruiser Emden, was legendary. Her bold and gallant raids against Allied merchant ships in the Indian Ocean earned her the admiration of friend and foe alike. When her dazzling exploits came to an abrupt end in 1914, even the British lamented her loss. -----------------------------------------------------------This superb translation of R. K. Lochner's Die Kaperfahrten des Kleinen Kreuzers Emden offers English-speaking readers the first com ... Read more

First US Edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, VG/VG CONDITION, 255 pages, ,illus, bibliog., index -------------------------------- This exciting book chronicles the last days of the Lusitania, the huge ocean liner torpedoed and sunk on May 7, 1915. Never before had an unarmed passenger ship been attacked without warning . . . 1198 persons died with it that day. The liner was British, the submarine German, but the repercussions were international in scope, for 124 Americans perished with the ship as it went down well in sight of the Irish coast. Among them were Elbert Hubbard, the homespun sage of East Aurora, N. Y., whose Message to Garcia was known to millions; Charles Frohman, dean of American theatrical producers (among his stars, Julia Marlowe, Maude Adams, John Drew); and Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, millionaire, horse-breeder, playboy.

[1-7], 8-271 pp, a note on longitude, selected bibliography, Cook's earlier voyages, index. --------------------In July, 1776, when he set sail on his third and last voyage of discovery, Captain Cook was already recognized as the greatest navigator and maritime explorer of his day, a man of exceptional scientific talent. Among his many accomplishments, he had mapped much of the New Zealand and Australian coasts, laying claim to both lands for the English Crown, and had disposed of the theory that a vast continent existed southeast of Australia. His discoveries of a precise navigational system and a preventive cure for scurvy were significant breakthroughs in maritime history. On this last expedition, Cook charted the shores of Hawaii and Alaska and conclusively proved that the legendary North-West Passage did not exist. But the ... Read more

New York Oxford University Press, 1992. , US first paper edition, 6 x 9, FINE CONDITION, xxii, 528 pages, maps, notes, bibliog., index. -------------------------- The expulsion of the Christians from the Holy Land in 1291 was far from being the end of the crusading movement.
