Shipwreck stories and miraculous rescues After long months of sailing across the oceans, navigating by sun and stars, there on the horizon is the new land.

Find out how the 'graveyard' and treasure of the Batavia was uncovered after 300 years; how Captain Bligh and his castaways suffered in an open boat after the mutiny on the Bounty; how two people survived the wreck of the Loch Ard when everyone else perished. Did Eliza Fraser owe her life to the Aborigines? How do you explain the ancient wreck before the arrival of Captain Cook? Unbelievable but true, these extraordinary stories of disaster and rescue at sea chart the extremes of human experience - from brutality and madness to heroic courage and endurance.

European voyaging towards Australia (Occasional paper), Hardy, John; Frost, Alan; Moutinho, Isabel (editors)
5 Hardy, John; Frost, Alan; Moutinho, Isabel (editors) European voyaging towards Australia (Occasional paper)
Australia Australian Academy of the Humanities 1990 0909897190 / 9780909897192 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good Small 4to 
xiv + 171 pages including b/w illustrations. Beginning about five hundred years ago, Europeans began to learn how to sail the world-ocean. This volume, deriving from an international colloquium at the Chateau d‘Entrecasteaux (France) in 1987, which was held as a prelude to the Australian Bicentenary, covers many aspects of European voyaging to the southern seas. These include the different motives that prompted such voyaging - whether gain, scientific curiosity, or imperial rivalry; the hardships endured by the sailors and attempts to improve the health of crews; and the attitudes to the indigenous inhabitants displayed by the Dutch, Spanish, English and French. This volume is a companion to Studies From Iérra Australis to Australia (Canberra, 1989) which, in presenting the story of the South Land from earliest times until the nineteenth century, was unable to describe European voyaging in the kind of detailrepresented here. Contents: Alfred W. Crosby Europe discovers the world-ocean; Antonio Estacio dos Reis Navigational instruments and methods used by the Portuguese in the age of discovery; Max Guedes The Carreira da India; Lourdes Diaz-Trechuelo The voyage of the Manila Galleon; Jorge Berguni The south and mid-pacific voyages; Tom Vermeulen The Dutch entry into the East Indies; James Watt The health of sailors; Etienne Taillmite Shipboard life; John Dunmore Problems arising from social and political change in France 1780-1810; Thierry Guicheteau and Jean-Pierre Kerneis Medical aspects of the voyages of exploration, with particular reference to Baudin's expedition 1800-1804; Barry M. Gough William Bolts and the Austrian attempt to establish an eastern empire; Catherine Gaziello French interests and ambitions: Laperouse's voyage; Alan Frost The colonisation of New South Wales; Helene Richard D'Entrecasteaux's expedition; David Mackay In the shadow of Cook: the ambition of Matthew Flinders; Carlos Martinez Shaw Spanish attitudes to the indigenous people of the Pacific Ocean; Lous H. de Vries-Zuiderbaan Dutch attitudes to indigenous people; Glyndwr Williams English attitudes to the indigenous peoples of the Pacific; Christian Couturaud French attitudes to indigenous peoples; Claude de Laguerenne and Jean-Pierrs Kerneis French interest in the Australian aborigines in the nineteenth century; Rudiger Joppien Cook's third voyage - some comments from the artist's point of view; Jacqueline Bopnnemains The Leseuer collection, Museum d'Histoire Naturelle, Le Havre; R.J.B. Knight Displaying records and artefacts: the problem of the First Fleet.

Sea Power in the New Century: Maritime Operations in Asia-Pacific beyond 2000, McCaffrie, Jack; Hinge, Alan
8 McCaffrie, Jack; Hinge, Alan Sea Power in the New Century: Maritime Operations in Asia-Pacific beyond 2000
Australia Australian Defence Studies Centre 1998 0731704185 / 9780731704187 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
225 pages. This book is divided into three parts: Part One offers perspectives of how sea power serves current and prospective interests. It begins with an analysis by Drjan Breemer of the US Naval School of the changing context of maritime strategy. From there, experts representing various nations in the region examine factors affecting maritime interests and developments. They cover anticipated economic/political changes likely to affect navies and their missions in the 21st century. Part Two looks at links between force structure and maritime operations in tomorrow’s Asia Pacific. It presents technological and tactical developments that are likely to be employed in tomorrow’s operations, and covers surface, air, submarine and amphibious dimensions. Part Three focuses on the theory, practice and potential of cooperative maritime missions that serve national interests, such as those related to surveillance, safety and peacekeeping, together with confidence and security building measures. The main target ‘audience’ for this book is serving military personnel and representatives of forward looking industries that must keep abreast of strategic and technological factors affecting maritime operations and force structures in the longer term. The ‘what navies will be doing, and what they will need to buy’ core of the book provides valuable insights for industry.

Celestial Navigation for Beginners, Toghill, Jeff
10 Toghill, Jeff Celestial Navigation for Beginners
Australia Reed (A.H.& A.W.) 1978 0589500422 / 9780589500429 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
111 pages including diagrams and b/w illustrations. To the uninitiated, Celestial Navigation appears to be a somewhat frightening exercise in mathematics. ln fact, the maximum mathematics involved in the new sight reduction systems is the addition of three lines of figures. Similarly, the apparent complexities of the solar and stellar systems take on a less frightening appearance when related to the lighthouses and similar earthly objects used for coastal navigation. Throughout this book, the author uses such a comparison between earthly and heavenly objects in explaining the close relationship between coastal and celestial navigation. In doing so, he reduces a complex subject to a simple and interesting one that can be absorbed by even the most non-mathematically minded. The book concentrates for much of its length on the plotting of the boat’s position by sun, planets and stars when out of sight of land. It also deals with related navigational routines such as checking the compass by using heavenly objects, taking radio time signals, and adjusting the sextant for day-to-day corrections. This is celestial navigation in its simplest form presented in a way which even the most amateur navigator can understand and absorb.

Navigating With Chart and Compass, Toghill, Jeff
11 Toghill, Jeff Navigating With Chart and Compass
Australia Reed 1986 0730101495 / 9780730101499 Reprint Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
96 pages including b/w illustrations. THE OFFSHORE FISHING BOAT or small family yacht, both of which have little room for more than the basic chart and compass, are very unlike the big ocean-going yachts or motor cruisers that are so often fitted with sophisticated electronic navigation equipment. Yet navigation with this basic gear can be just as accurate as with some electronic equipment, providing you are within sight of land. This books describes how you can navigate along almost any coastline in the world providing you have on board a chart and compass and know how to use them. Jeff Toghill has been involved with yachts and small craft for almost forty years. He graduated from the School of Navigation, Southampton University, and commenced his sea-going career at the age of sixteen. He now lives in Sydney where he runs his Schools of Sailing and Navigation. He is the author of twenty books on boats and boating and writes extensively for magazines and newspapers.
