Battle station Battle station detail from HMS Victory, showing the cramped, dangerous conditions endured by gunners. The Gunner William Rivers the gunner was responsible for looking after of all the guns and associated equipment. He made sure that gunpowder kept in the magazine was safe and dry, and that there was a plenti­ful supply of cartridges ready to use. Assisting him were six mates, twelve quarter gunners and two yeomen of the powder room. He was also responsible for all small arms: muskets, bayonets, pistols, cutlasses, pikes and hatchets. For this equipment he had an armourer, his mates and a gunsmith. The gunner was also in charge of the gunroom situated at the after end of the lower gun deck where he kept a watch over the ship’s boys. It is hard to appreciate the atmosphere of this area of the ship in action - the noise, smoke, flying splinters and shot - all overlaid with the screams from the injured. This exhibition quality model is 25cm long, 20cm high and 26cm wide. A fascinating detail from this important ship. Other models also available include Britannia, Cutty Sark, Bounty, Victory, Royal Caroline, Santa Maria, Sovereign of the Seas, Wasa, and Golden Hind.

CIVIL WAR KNIVES, Newman, Marc CIVIL WAR KNIVES (ISBN: 0873649990) Newman, Marc Paladin Press, 1998. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 109 pages. A look into the history of Union and Confederate knives that reveals the attitudes, ingenuity, thoughts, and fears of not only the officers and men who carried these knives, but even the cutlers and blacksmiths who designed and crafted them. Historian Marc Newman spent more than 10 years researching Civil War Knives. As well as examining the collections of dozens of museums, historical societies, presidential libraries, national military parks and battlegrounds, and individual collectors, Newman devoted thousands of hours to locating and studying the oftentimes hidden details and anecdotes attached to the hundreds of Civil War knives documented in this definitive reference. The hardcover edition is out of print. The Book and the Dust Jacket are Fine.
Classic Bowie knives, Robert Abels Classic Bowie knives, Robert Abels Published by the author, 1967. Soft cover. Fine. 1st Edition. 97 pages. The classic book in the field of collecting Bowie knives. It is rare to find a collector of this stature who was so ahead of his time. Collectors are fascinated by the niche these knives have carved into American history. Bowie knives were carried and used by many famous and infamous Americans during a period when this country was undergoing the severe growing pains of a small nation becoming great. American frontiersmen, prospectors, buffalo hunters and soldiers all used these knives as tools of their trade and as a means of protection. Bowie knives were common in the sparsely settled frontier areas, the California gold fields (where their fabulous quality and fine decoration conferred status on the owner), the plains thick with buffalo and the batlefields of the Civil War. Many of these knives are not only treasures for their historical value, but for their great value as pieces of art. Some specimens, obviously the works of silversmiths and jewelers, exhibit beautiful craftsmanship in engraving, tooled leatherwork and metalworking. There is a slight rub a the top of the spine, otherwise the book is a clean, tight near fine copy. The Dust Jacket is only about good with some tears, and edge wear. Ex-libris sticker to end paper.

HMS Endeavour Made for extended voyages HMS Endeavour belonged to Captain James Cook who made his first voyage to find new continents. Born in 1728 at York, he got permission from the government of the day to explore new continents and isolated islands, so they could be included on the world map. At the same time he would become to know the inhabitants, flora and fauna. In 1768 his exploration was of Tahiti, followed in 1769 with New Zealand, Australia and New Guinea. Further explorations on the way back to England and he passed the Cape of Good Hope, retuning home in 1771. It is difficult to over-emphasize the importance and bravery involved, as well as the skill with which Captain Cook charted these previously unexplored areas. This exhibition quality model is 80cm long, 70cm high, 24cm wide and boasts wonderful detail. A fine decorative item, with historic interest. Shipping not included. Please email to discuss.

Other models also available include Britannia, Cutty Sark, Bounty, Victory, Royal Caroline, Santa Maria, Sovereign of the Seas, Wasa, and Golden Hind.

THE ANTIQUE BOWIE KNIFE BOOK THE ANTIQUE BOWIE KNIFE BOOK (ISBN: 0962604402) Adams, Bill, J. Bruce Voyles and Terry Moss. Conyers, GA: Museum Publishing Company, Inc., 1990. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. VERY SCARCE. Sold out on publication, this copy just removed from long storage. Introduction by Norm Flayderman. Limited to 1100, First Edition, #366 Gilt stamped beige cloth. Quarto, 552 pp., profusely illustrated in full color throughout. The story of the 19th Century Sheffield, England (and American) makers of the world's finest, most practical and efficient blade: the famed Bowie knife, and its many variations: California knives, I Dig Gold From Quartz knives, Arkansas Toothpicks; buffalo knives, and during the American Civil War, knives marked Death to Traitors, Death to Abolition, Liberty and many more, often having highly-decorated hilts, silver and jeweled decoration, and ivory, horn or mother-of-pearl grip scales. The postwar American Frontier era brought large buffalo-skinning and related-use knives. Finally, in the 1870s the American makers of fine cutlery began appearing on the scene, often equalling the quality and style of those by the Sheffield makers. This book includes: American Bowies, Unmarked American Bowies, English & European Bowies, Showpieces, Confederate Bowies, California Knives and South of the Border Knives, plus an Index to Knife Makers and much more, including lavish and beautiful, full-page color shots of some of the finest antique Bowie knives in the world. An invaluable reference, and long out-of-print. The book and matching pictorial dustjacket are new. The Bowie knife ‘bible’ for invertors and collectors.
