  • Fine Carte de Visite – Adventure Author and Secretary to the Marine Society – Samuel Whitchurch Sadler – William Trindall Pembroke Dock. 1860’s.

    Fine Carte de Visite – Adventure Author and Secretary to the Marine Society – Samuel Whitchurch Sadler – William Trindall Pembroke Dock. 1860’s.

    Samuel Whitchurch Sadler was a prolific writer of maritime adventure stories of the period. Quite a number involved slave ships … The African Cruiser; Slavers and Cruisers; The Good Ship Barbara; The Flag Lieutenant and our favourite The Ship of Ice. The Marine Society is the World’s oldest Maritime Charity. Formed in 1756 at the Kings Arms Tavern, Cornhill London. The objective of the charity … to train and improve the lot of young men, often orphans, and train then up, cloth them etc so they had more chance of survival in the Navy.

    The photographer was William Trindall, an Oxford born “photographic artist” who was operating out of premises in the Docks at Pembroke from 1868. A previous owner has written 1864 on the reverse … this might be a tad early.

    A very good image in fine condition.

    Distinguished Marine Identity and prolific story teller

    This is Volume II of the Collected Works of William Baylebridge (Memorial Edition) published in 1962. The Memorial publications were released at different times hence they are often found in separate volumes. This volume stands alone.

This publicly available volume represents the very next printing and contains the authors revisions which were made in 1932. These revisions never made the printing press and Baylebridge died in 1942.

    Published by Angus and Robertson, octavo, 226, with colour portrait frontispiece and a facsimile of the authors hand written amendments at the rear. A very good copy in a like dust jacket a trifle marked.
