LONG OUT OF PRINT!

    

The following book is no longer available in stores and I have long been searching for a few copies for stock. Finally I was able to pick up two at another out of print book store though they were quite pricey,  and I don’t expect to find any more in the future. This will certainly be your last opportunity to pick this title up for your library.

9421d. Gowdy, Jim & Kim Ruth. GUIDING LIGHTS OF THE DELAWARE RIVER AND BAY. Sweetwater, NJ., 1999. 296p. Soft wraps. Signed by both authors. This is the most comprehensive history ever written on the lighthouses, lightships, tenders and depots of the Delaware River and Bay – from Cape May to Gloucester City and Philadelphia to Fenwick Island . This detailed history was painstakingly research by the authors and is enhanced by more than 180 photographs and 25 illustrations. Using records from the National Archives, Coast Guard, and private collections this monumental work provides wonderful reading. The vintage photographs alone are a feast to the eye and offer previously unseen views of many of these interesting stations. Includes are views of a number these lights under construction, and some in the process of destruction. Also includes rare views of tenders, keepers, light vessels and much more. One of the best on the subject. Only very lightly read. (VG+). $74.

8169f. Beach , John W., THE CAPE HENLOPEN LIGHTHOUSE.  Dover , DE., 1971. 2nd. 92p. DJ. With over 65 vintage photos and illustrations. A well done chronicle of the lighthouse which was built on Cape Henlopen, Delaware in 1765 and fell from its precarious position, atop a shifting sand hill, and into the encroaching sea in 1926. Credited with being the second oldest permanent navigational aid in the United States , Cape Henlopen Lighthouse is well detailed in a great many wonderful vintage photos, and in descriptive text. Also laid in are an original c.1910 snapshot of the light and keeper’s dwelling and two newspaper articles from 1971 detailing the light’s destruction. Nicely done and most difficult to find. Clean, tight, a few spots to dj. (VG+). $74.

 

1475. (photo) Ship John Shoal lighthouse, Delaware Bay c.1900-1910. This important view provides good detail of the Ship John Shoal lighthouse in the Delaware Bay as one of the Keepers looks on. The 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exposition, the first exposition of its kind in the United States , was held to mark the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. More than ten million visitors visited the works of 30,000 exhibitors during its six month run. This important view provides good detail of the Ship John Shoal lighthouse in the Delaware Bay at about the turn of the century. This lighthouse was built for display at the the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exposition and was intended for later use at Southwest Ledge in Delaware. It was one of the first of its kind, built on a cylindrical iron foundation, designed to prevent flowing ice from inflicting damage to the foundation. The 45-foot-tall lighthouse is an eight-sided three-story cast iron structure with a Mansard roof covering the top two stories. Atop the tower is an octagonal lantern room surmounted by an ogee octagonal roof. The lighthouse design was deemed such a marvel, that when the superstructure was completed, it was put on display at the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia , shining its light every night from July 4, 1876 until the close of the exhibition. A keeper lived at the lighthouse, tending the light each night. The displayed superstructure never found its way to Southwest Ledge. An identical structure being built was sent to Southwest Ledge during the Exposition so that construction would not be delayed. After the Exposition, the superstructure on display was sent to Ship John Shoal in Delaware . Large photo measures 7 ½” x 10” and has good detail despite the foxing and discoloration to the margins. (VG). $58.

24145. Hurley, George and Suzanne. SHIPWRECKS AND RESCUES ALONG THE BARRIER ISLANDS OF DELAWARE , MARYLAND AND VIRGINIA . Ocean City . 1984. 176 p. Soft wraps. Nicely done, this is a story of islands and shipwrecks and heroes.

Little evidence remains on the islands that would attest to  the contributions made toward a proud past: a lonely tombstone in a pine grove at Green Run, a fallen and twisted fla g tower at Pope’s Island, a crumbling brick foundation at Broadwater, the collapsed and decaying remains of an old station house on Cobb’s Island , refurbished lifesaving stations at Ocean City and Indian River Inlet, and an unknown sailor’s cemetery plaque at Lewes.

27200. Roales, Judith. DELAWARE LIGHTHOUSES AND RANGE LIGHTS. 2007. Arcadia Publishing. 128 p. Soft wraps. 200 vintage photographs. Delaware does not usually come to mind as one of America’s great maritime states. Yet it has a long history of “firsts,” innovations, and improvements in lighthouse construction and technology dating from the beginning of lighthouse history in the United States. One of the original six lighthouses built before the founding of this country was in Delaware. In the following years, major offshore lighthouses and an extensive system of range lights were established. At the height of its lighthouse history, Delaware had 27 manned light stations that warned mariners of the shoals and colliding currents at the mouth of the Delaware Bay and guided ships safely from the Atlantic Ocean to the inland ports of Wilmington and Philadelphia. Most of Delaware’s lighthouses are gone now, preserved only in faded photographs and yellowed documents such as those collected here. The lights that remain struggle daily to survive the punishing hands of vandals and Mother Nature. Another in the series from Arcadia , a well known publisher of local and regional histories, this volume drawns from public and private collections, most never before published. Superb photographs, well worth it. (M). $19.99

He not only discusses their construction and the changes they have undergone, but also tells dramatic tales of their keepers, who sometimes braved storms, isolation and poor conditions so that the lights would stay burning for those at sea. Trapani also brings Delaware ’s lighthouse history full circle by conveying to the reader that though these guiding beacons are now automated and aging, the lights are hardly finished making history here in the 21st century.
