  • Sailing Ships and Paddle Wheels – J.C. Bull (Privately Published and of Quality)

    Sailing Ships and Paddle Wheels – J.C. Bull (Privately Published and of Quality)

    Self published in 1974 by Joseph Bull at Metung, Gippsland Lakes, Victoria. The book is really that of his father James Bull and forms two parts the first an autobiography and the second by the author complied from his father’s papers.

    Some fascinating “real life” content about Coastal Colliers; the Bass Strait – Crayfish – Logs and Convicts; the Gippsland Coast and Lakes. What really strikes Voyager about this book is the “tragic quest” for gold in New Guinea. A 30 page account of the voyage of the “Dove” a 50 ton craft built in Tasmania in 1868 – includes an extract from the diary of Captain A.R. Rennie in charge of the Dove Prospecting Expedition. The crew got very ill the boat took in water and had to be abandoned when rescued by the Sir Lancelot which took them onwards to Japan.

    Antarctica Observed – A.G.E. Jones

    Published by Caedmon of Whitby in 1982 a very fine copy.

    The author Jones published this book in Whitby – he was an Antarctic expert of note. His mission here was to draw a proper conclusion as to who saw the Antarctic first – through thorough research of original logs and diaries and carefully re-plotting the tracks of Cook, Bellingshausen, Smith and Bransfield, Palmer etc all likely candidates. His conclusions are … in the book.
