Goins' Encyclopedia Of Cutlery Markings. Goins Goins' Encyclopedia Of Cutlery Markings. Goins

Secondhand, VG Cond, mylar covered with some mylar lifting on the rear cover.

Goins' Encyclopedia, is one of the most talked about books in recent memory. Since the first Encyclopedia became required reading for all cutlery collectors 12 years ago, John and Charlotte Goins have been deluged with ever more questions, queries, and bits of information on old firms and markings. Increasingly, collectors have wondered if and when there might be an update to that knife collector's "bible." Friends, the answer is yes, and that day is finally here. For those of you unfamiliar with the "Goins Book," Goins' Encyclopedia contains summaries of the known history behind practically every marking found on antique cutlery. There are literally thousands of cutlery manufacturers, importers, dealers, hardware firms, barber supply companies, and the like included in its scope. When it comes to historical information on the brands of old knives, razors, or anything else that goes 'cut,' Goins' Encyclopedia is far and away the best single resource.

Pilots: The World of Pilotage Under Sail and Oar. Vol.1  Cuncliffe. Pilots: The World of Pilotage Under Sail and Oar. Vol.1 Cuncliffe.

For hundreds of years the expert pilot has conducted vessels in and out of harbours using his local knowledge of the disposition of channels and shoals and the local land and sea marks. And to carry out this activity literally hundreds of different local craft evolved to suit local needs and, significantly, withstand any conditions that they might encounter. This reference work describes, analyses and depicts all these vessels and pays homage to the craft and the skilled crews who manned them. This first volume covers the schooners of North America and Great Britain and includes a history of early pilotage in both countries. The dangers confronted at sea and in harbour are dealt with as well as finance, disasters and rescue, pilot stations, and the organisation of pilot services. Life on board is described and the rivalry and competition between pilots is vividly told. But the core of the book covers the magnificent schooners themselves - the Liverpool schooners, the extraordinary Swansea vessels, the early Virginia schooners, and those from as far afield as Boston, the St Lawrence River, San Francisco and the Deleware River.
Plans, paintings, prints and photographs, tables of dimensions and the lively text bring to life the craft and the work which they undertook.
