‎REGULATIONS FOR THE UNIFORM & DRESS OF THE ARMY OF THE UNITED STATES. JUNE 1851. FROM THE ORIGINAL TEXT AND DRAWINGS IN THE NAVY DEPARTMENT‎

‎Philadelphia: Published by William H. Hortsmann and Sons 1851. 131pp. plus twenty-five plates by P.S. Duval after G.C. Humphries five printed in colors six handcolored. Folio. Original grey paper-covered limp boards blue/grey title label on upper cover rebacked with green cloth. Extremities worn corners rounded. Occasional small chips in margins of plates and first few leaves of text. Else very good. In a modern cloth box leather label. First edition of this rare color plate book recording the uniform and dress of the mid-19th-century United States Army. This work was published by William H. Hortsmann and Sons "military furnishers" of Philadelphia; established in 1815 they were the country's leading military outfitters throughout the 19th century and well into the 20th. The plates drawn by G.C. Humphries were presumably used by Hortsmann in conjunction with the text to explain to customers what they were entitled to wear the official nature of the work being emphasized by the facsimile endorsements on each plate by the Adjutant General. The attractive plates are ably executed in lithography by P.S. Duval one of the leading lithographic printers of the time. They consist of five chromolithographic images showing nineteen full-length views of various ranks and regiments within the U.S. Army; followed by sixteen plates of details of uniforms four partially or completely handcolored; two plates of swords; and ending with colored plates of "horse furniture." The text reprints the relevant regulations concerning the dress code for officers and enlisted men including members of the topographical engineers dragoons and cadets. Not in Bennett or McGrath. COLAS 2520. SABIN 68957 an apparent variant with all 25 plates colored. HOWES R155. Published by William H. Hortsmann and Sons hardcover books‎

‎Civil War: US. Navy U. S.‎

‎LIST OF SUSPECTED VESSELS caption title‎

‎N.p. probably printed on a shipboard press 1862. 4pp. plus 3pp. manuscript addenda. Quarto on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Minor soiling. Very good. Tied in upper left corner with a ribbon. A list of suspected blockade runners in operation along the Atlantic coast printed just as the union was tightening its blockade noose around the Confederacy. The printed portion lists more than sixty ships most of them British vessels which had been observed with suspicious cargoes in London or the West Indies. A typical entry reads: "Steamers Malacca & Rangoon by advices from London of October 18 supposed to be purchased or hired by the rebels." The reports are dated from October 1861 to January 1862. The manuscript additions are in the same vein listing ten additional ships each with detailed physical descriptions but no associated dates. The manuscript is docketed on the verso: "Explination sic of vessels reported to run the Blockade." We have not seen any lists similar to this one which must have been extremely useful to blockade operations and reveals a sophisticated Union intelligence operation that spanned several ports. From its physical appearance we speculate that this was printed on a shipboard press. Rare and ephemeral. unknown books‎

‎London 1762. Eight separate imprints. Dbd. Minor edge wear and toning. Generally very good to near fine condition. In a blue cloth slipcase gilt. A nice collection of British Acts of Parliament relating to the Royal Navy or related seagoing activities. The dominance of the British Royal Navy was unquestioned from the late 1600s until well into the 20th century. These mid 18th-century acts were printed at a time when the British Navy was swiftly ascending to the peak of its power through superior financing tactics training organization population support hygiene dockyard facilities logistical support and warship design and construction. By the early 19th century the British Navy saw little action mainly due to the lack of a worthy adversary. Each of these titles is rare with between one and four copies listed in institutions in ESTC.

‎ADVERTIMIENTOS A V. MAGESTAD TOCANTS AL GOVIERNO DE GALERAS Y OTROS AUISOS DE JUAN JACOBO LOCADELO VASSALL DE VUESTRA MAGESTAD‎

‎Madrid: Por la viuda de Alonso Martini 1617. 4344 leaves plus several pen and ink illustrations. Folio. Later speckled calf maroon gilt morocco label spine gilt. Covers with slight wear and scuffing at extremities. Faint dampstain in lower margin. Occasional contemporary manuscript notes and marks. Overall internally clean. Very good. A comprehensive list of rules addressed to ship captains governing the proper provisioning of Spanish vessels based in Sicily and Naples both then under Spanish rule. The text includes a bevy of rules expense guidelines and more and offers a fine window into the near- obsessive attention to detail that marked the administration of the Spanish military at the peak of its powers. Of particular interest are several pen and ink sketches that include tools a ship in dry dock and storage bins as well as two much larger harbor plans of Palermo and Naples. Each drawing is keyed to a printed description of the location and shows fortifications lookouts and in the case of Naples dormitories. These are charming and well accomplished. Good evidence of the Spanish navy at work at the height of empire with rules which certainly applied to vessels in the Americas as well. Extremely rare and not on OCLC.

‎PHOTOGRAPH ARCHIVE Of NAVY DIVE TRAINING RESEARCH And SALVAGE OPERATIONS 1944 1985‎

‎1985. Light general wear from storage faint musty odor. Photos clean and well-developed overall. VG - Nr Fine. Over 320 photographs most b/w some color plus numerous contact sheets and negatives. Majority of photos ~ 8" x 10"; some ~3" x 5" <br/><br/>A large archive of loose photographs documenting USN dive training salvage operations and submarine / underwater expeditions and experiments primarily between 1965 and 1985; a handful of photographs are dated earlier though several these are likely later duplicates from older negatives. The archive is made up of several collections pertaining to particular operations/ experiments which bear captions stamped on the verso of each photograph or in a small number of cases typed on a slip of paper which has been affixed to the verso or stapled to the foot of the image as well as many training and/or uncaptioned images. The main collections within the archive consist of: - 40 photos the salvage operation of HQ480 a VNR water barge that sank in Saigon Bay in 1969 plus an additional 7 photos of Vietnam-related salvops 1966 - 1970; these photographs are numbered on the verso and appear to be part of a larger series of 80 photos of this operation. - 59 photos of the salvage operation of the USS Guitarro SSN-665 a Sturgeon-class submarine that sank during construction in the Mare Island Naval Shipyard at Vallejo CA in 1969 earning it the nickname "Mare Island Mud Puppy" and requiring over $15 million in repairs. Wiki - 13 photos of Sealab II an underwater research habitat off the coast of La Jolla CA including photos of astronaut/ argonaut Commander M. Scott Carpenter. - 11 photos of the USS Nautilus the first operational nuclear-powered submarine in the world including preparations for its dive underneath the North Pole and its christening by Mamie Eisenhower in January of 1954; many if not most of these appear to be later duplicates from the original negatives. Additional photographs of special note include five stamped "Amphibious Training Command" dated Nov. 14 1944; three of Captain Searle explaining the Navy's procedures for a proposed Smithsonian-headed project to salvage the USS Tecumseh sunk in Mobile Bay during the Civil War that never went forward; an underwater demolotion team that "assisted the Arctic Expedition in resupplying the DEW line"; an aerial view of the first fleet review in Long Beach CA 1956; and a practice exercise for Apollo 8 1968. A large assortment of training photos -- students swimming undergoing psychological testing learning rescue techniques and more -- equipment and various other photographs round out the archive. The photographs range from being overtly posed the training pictures in particular to being documentary accounts of sailors at various tasks and instances of damage/buckling to the salvaged ships. Scenes range: sailors on deck underwater training and during operations and at rest; demonstrating particular equipment; images of the ships and equipment; etc. A significant proportion are official photos and marked as such though many are not marked as having been released for publication. Numerous contact sheets large negatives and sheets of negatives accompany the photos. Overall an interesting collection visually documenting post-war training and the changing nature of the US Navy's underwater and salvage operations over the course of forty years with a heavy concentration during the 1960s and early 1970s. unknown books‎

Description of a Confederate ship attempting to run the Mississippi River blockade at the close of the war. Here a Union sailor describes one of the last naval incidents of the war in which the CSS Webb made a desperate run down the Red River and the Mississippi in a bid for the open ocean before finally being scuttled by its crew past New Orleans. The unidentified author devoted most of his long letter to a description of the pursuit: "There has been a very dareing sic deed committed on this river since I wrote.All the men of war below us fired at her but did not hit her. She was going down the river at the rate of 30 miles an hour. There was a torpedo projecting from her bow. . . . The prevailing opinion here is that Jeff Davis or some other of the leaders of the Confederacy were on board." <br/><br/> unknown books‎

Photographic image of the ship as eps. Slight lean. Minor extremity wear. A VG - VG copy. 352 pp. Profusely illustrated with b/w & color photographic images. 12-1/4" x 9" <br/><br/>Commissioned in 1962 Enterprise was the world's first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier & the 8th United States naval vessel to bear the name. Like her predecessor of World War II fame she is nicknamed "Big E". At 1123 ft she is the longest naval vessel in the world a record which still stands. Enterprise's crew numbered some 4600 odd sailors aviators et al. 1969 was a fateful year for this ship as on 14 January a MK-32 Zuni rocket loaded on a parked F-4 exploded when ordnance cooked off after being overheated by an aircraft start unit. The explosion set off fires and additional explosions across the flight deck. The fires were controled comparatively quickly but 27 sailors were killed and an additional 314 were injured. The fire destroyed 15 aircraft and the resulting damage forced Enterprise to put in for repairs at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. On 1 March repairs to the ship were completed and the ship proceeded on her scheduled western Pacific WESTPAC deployment to Vietnam and the Tonkin Gulf. This horrific event is pictorially captured in this volume as well as the crew ship's departments etc as is the norm for a cruise book such as this. No copies found listed on OCLC.

The other carriers of her class were the USS Saratoga USS Ranger and USS Independence. She superseded Shinano of World War II vintage as the largest aircraft carrier ever built by full load displacement and was the first to specifically support jet aircraft. The ship was affectionately called "The FID" because James Forrestal was the first ever Secretary of Defense FID standing for "First In Defense". This is also the slogan on the ship's insignia and patch. She was also informally known in the fleet as the "Zippo" and "Forrest Fire" or "Firestal" because of a number of highly publicized fires on board most notably a 1967 incident in which 134 sailors died and 161 were injured." Forrestal was commissioned 1 October 1955 and remained on the active Navy roles until her decommissioning in September 1993. This cruise book documents her "second tour of duty in the Mediterranean from 2 September 1958 to 12 March 1959 where Forrestal again combined a program of training patrol and participation in major exercises with ceremonial hospitality and public visiting. Her guest list during this cruise was headed by United States Secretary of Defense N. H. McElroy." Wiki. Scarce: OCLC records 5 institutional holdings. hardcover books‎
