Fruchtman, Theodore  
Illustrated Ships Dictionary: A Handy Collection of Well-known Terms Related to Boats, Ships, and Seamanship, With Easy-to-Understand Illustrations
 Picture
Publisher: Wilcox and Follett company, 1953 Chicago, IL.
Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "If you are a powerboat enthusiast, a week-end sailor, a new navy recruit--or just someone interested in boats and ships--this little hand-sized book may be just what you are looking for. Like everyone who has tried to learn the strangely different meaning of seafaring terms, you have undoubtedly found that the average dictionary isn't much help. Verbal definitions are not enough. Here is a brand-new dictionary of nautical terms with a graphic illustration for every word. You can not only read but see just what the words mean. You can see, for instance, that a 'painter' is not something connected with paint but is a rope connected to a small boat--and a 'transom' is not an overdoor window but a flat surface across the stern of a ship or boat.." 157 pages.

Tilp, Frederick  
The Chesapeake Bay of Yore: Mainly About the Rowing and Sailing Craft
 Picture
Publisher: Frederick Tilp, 1982 Alexandria, VA.
ISBN: 0960178627 Book. Book condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover First edition (stated). Foreword by Louis L. Goldstein, Comptroller of the Treasury of Maryland. "..Mr. Tilp is a native of the Chesapeake Bay region who has spent a lifetime exploring and enjoying the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, large and small.. The Chesapeake Bay of Yore is a charming collection of lore gathered over a half century, the result of expeditions through various nooks and crannies of the Bay, its tributaries and archives and museums throughout the region. The maritime heritage of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland and Virginia is a nearly unique part of Americana that should not be lost, and it is the dedication of Mr. Tilp and those like him that will preserve that heritage for the future. Perhaps the most valuable contribution of this work is that it provides both a narrative and visual experience for the reader; a reference of immense enjoyment thanks to the pen and ink drawings that accompany the text. Here, we can actually see what a gunning skiff looked like, the shape of the native doryboat and the immensity of the Susquehanna arks. Here too, are pictured and described the canoes, the skipjack and the bugeye, names familiar to most residents of the region but sometimes never seen in a lifetime along the Bay. In special sections, Mr. Tilp relates subjects as much a part of the Chesapeake Bay lore and history as the variety of vessels he describes. The importance of the area's forest land to its maritime heritage, the shipbuilding industry that grew up along its shores and the crafts of various maritime artisans are detailed. Sections on the oyster, the canning industry, marine police, and folklife all bring together the flavor of life in the Chesapeake Bay region. The vignettes presented in The Chesapeake Bay of Yore make clear the interrelationship between the water, the other natural resources and the people and industries of the area.." Illustrated with sketches of various ships and boats of the Chesapeake Bay. xi + 148 pages with index. Oblong hardcover.Book is in VERY GOOD condition. No dust jackdet.
