Hurley, George and Hurley, Suzanne  
Shipwrecks and Rescues Along the Barrier Islands of Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia
 Picture
Publisher: The Donning Company Publishers, 1984 Norfolk, VA.
ISBN: 0898653886 Book. Book condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. Hardcover Signed by BOTH authors 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall A book plate attached to the front inside cover notes this book as "A limited edition of 2000 of which this is number 1818. The book plate is signed by both George and Suzanne Hurley. "This is a story of islands and shipwrecks and heroes. It is an attempt to record and document a part of a colorful segment of the historical heritage that has been left to those who live on the coastal archipelago of Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. The era we emphasized was the post-Civil War period, a time when sailing vessels were considered to be the most practical and economical means of transportation. Our research involved the United States Life-Saving Service, which preceded the U.S. Coast Guard. Perhaps the most dramatic scene which caught our imagination and best explains the spirit of this work was a very old portrait of the Assateague Beach Life-Saving Station during the 1870s. The scene shows the living room of that federal station on a typically cold and stormy winter night. The surfmen are gathered around a wood-burning stove in a dimly lamp-lit room. All of the men are focusing their attention on the entry door which is ajar, and the windblown figure of a surfman who has been patrolling the beach is standing in the entranceway shouting excitedly, 'Wreck in the offing!' Several generations have now grown up along the Eastern Shore without ever hearing the dreadful cry: 'Ship ashore!' It is hoped that these pages will recapture the spirit of an era and preserve it for the future.." Very well illustrated. 176 pages. Book is in Near Fine condition. No dust jacket.

Shipwrecks on the Virginia Coast and the Men of the United States Life-Saving Service
 Picture
Publisher: Tidewater Publishers, 1986 Centreville, MD.
ISBN: 0870333526 Book. Book condition: Very Good. Very Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall First edition (stated). "From its establishment in the early 1870s until it was merged with the Revenue Cutter Service in 1915 to form the U.S. Coast Guard, the United States Life-Saving Service was the guardian of the Atlantic coast from Maine to North Carolina. Well trained and well equipped (though primitively by today's standards), the men of the Service patrolled the beaches day and night to warn ships in danger of running aground and to alert their lifesaving stations in the even of disaster. Shipwrecks, of course, occurred more frequently at night than during the day, and when weather conditions were at their worst. Men of the Life-Saving Service were thus called out under the most adverse circumstances imaginable. The coast of Virginia is scarcely a hundred miles long, yet from 1874 to 1915 there were more than 600 incidents there in which the Life-Saving Service was involved. Nearly 7, 000 lives were imperiled in the stranding of vessels. Of these, 102 lives were lost; only 250 vessels were wrecked beyond hope. This book is the story of these incidents and of the incredibly stalwart men of the Service. The episodes are made more graphic by the use of contemporary illustrations and annotated maps. Appended to the narrative are lists of all known wrecks on the Virginia coast during this period, arranged both chronologically and by vessel." Illustrated. xiv + 226 pages with index. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in VERY GOOD condition.

Shomette, Donald G.  
Shipwrecks on the Chesapeake: Maritime Disasters on Chesapeake Bay and Its Tributaries, 1608-1978
 Picture
Publisher: Tidewater Publishers, 1983 Centreville, MD.
ISBN: 087033283x Book. Book condition: Very Good. Very Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "For many, the Chesapeake Bay has an aura of historical romance and high adventure. Like the great Atlantic Ocean of which it is an extension, the Bay also has its dark and treacherous aspect. For ages men have explored its shores and harvested the incredible bounty of its aquatic life, but also they have had to suffer the consequences of the destructive forces which it unleashes all too frequently. Marine archaeologist Donald G. Shomette shares, in this book, his fascination with those tragedies and disasters which occurred in the Bay and its tidewater region over a 370-year period. Using material from contemporary accounts, he dramatically highlights these episodes while emphasizing the poignant human interest side in every incident. Of particular note is a chapter describing the authors own involvement in an underwater diving exploration to uncover the remains of the New Jersey, which sank in the Bay in 1870. Of a different sort, and jarring in its impact on a modern reader (who assumes that such catastrophes have become obsolete by new technology), is the chapter describing the collision in 1978 of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Cuyahoga and the Argentinean freighter Santa Cruz II. Using the testimony from the Coast Guard's Marine Casualty Report, Shomette graphically relates the confusion of the fateful voyage and the hectic moments before impact. The text is liberally illustrated, and there is an extensive, detailed chronology of all known disasters on the Bay." xii + 324 pages with index. Book is in VERY GOOD condition.

ISBN: 087033283x Book. Book condition: Good to Very Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall For many, the Chesapeake Bay has an aura of historical romance and high adventure. Like the great Atlantic Ocean of which it is an extension, the Bay also has its dark and treacherous aspect. For ages men have explored its shores and harvested the incredible bounty of its aquatic life, but also they have had to suffer the consequences of the destructive forces which it unleashes all too frequently. Marine archaeologist Donald G. Shomette shares, in this book, his fascination with those tragedies and disasters which occurred in the Bay and its tidewater region over a 370-year period. Using material from contemporary accounts, he dramatically highlights these episodes while emphasizing the poignant human interest side in every incident. Of particular note is a chapter describing the authors own involvement in an underwater diving exploration to uncover the remains of the New Jersey, which sank in the Bay in 1870. Of a different sort, and jarring in its impact on a modern reader (who assumes that such catastrophes have become obsolete by new technology), is the chapter describing the collision in 1978 of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Cuyahoga and the Argentinean freighter Santa Cruz II. Using the testimony from the Coast Guard's Marine Casualty Report, Shomette graphically relates the confusion of the fateful voyage and the hectic moments before impact. The text is liberally illustrated, and there is an extensive, detailed chronology of all known disasters on the Bay." xii + 324 pages with index. Book is in GOOD or better condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; shelfwear.
