Books: new releases from Seaforth Publishing

12 July, 2011 at 8:37 pm Leave a comment

The new catalogue from Seaforth Publishing has arrived; here are the latest releases relevant to those with an interest in the 18th century navy:

“Poxed & Scurvied” – The Story of Sickness and Health at Sea
by Kevin Brown

“Warships of the Napoleonic Era” – Design, Development and Deployment
by Robert Gardiner

“Life of a Sailor (Seafarer’s Voices 5)
by Frederick Chamier

Interesting books from the backlist:

“The Real Jim Hawkins” – Ships’ Boys in the Georgian Navy
by Roland Pietsch

“First Rate” – The Greatest Warships of the Age of Sail
by Rif Winfield

“British Warships in the Age of Sail, 1603 – 1714” – Design, Construction, Careers and Fates
by Rif Winfield

“Fireship” – The Terror Weapon of the Age of Sail
by Peter Kirsch

You can order the books from the Seaforth Publishing website . It didn’t work for me, though; while I could add books to the shopping cart, but it wasn’t possible to access the cart, and the reductions mentioned in the catalogue weren’t available on the website. I tried with both Firefox and IE, so who knows, maybe they have a special Molly-filter… 😉

I’ve ordered “Poxed & Scurvied” and “The Real Jim Hawkins” from Amazon, so if you should run into the same troubles as I, there are alternative sources.
