2986. Kagawa, Ron M. and J. Richard Kellam. Cobb's Island, Virginia : The Last Sentinel. Virginia Beach. 2003. 128 p. DJ. This one is definitely a sleeper – once I picked it up I was unable to put it down. Cobb's Island, Virginia: The Last Sentinel, co-written by Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture Ron Kagawa and J. Richard Kellam, charts the history of the now-barren Virginia barrier island that was once a flourishing hunting and fishing resort and home to the first U.S. Life Saving Service facility there. However, 99% of the history there relates directly to the Life Saving Service and early Coast Guard there. From cover to cover, the authors trace the work of the life-savers on the island, and particularly the history of the 1875-76 life-saving station and later Coast Guard stations there,  their modifications over the years and finally moving of the Coast Guard station in its entirety to the mainland between 1997-2001. The book is chock full of vintage photographs, architectural plans and much more. Well worth a place in your library. The book is now out of print but we have been able to obtain a quantity of copies, new, never opened. (M). $38.95

13239. (signed document) Light-House Board. Appointment of Keeper Upper Cedar Point Light House, Virginia c.1867. Signed in hand by Rear Admiral [ret] William B. Shubrick, Chairman, Light-House Board. Dated July 17, 1867. Rare form letter, filled out and signed in hand by Light-House Board Chairman William B. Shubrick, appoints Mr. James Treakle as first keeper at the light-house at Upper Cedar Point, Virginia. Lengthy one page form letter indicated that the oath of office must be taken and indicates what duties the new keeper must perform upon arriving at the light station.  (Note. There was a “James C. Treakle” listed in the US/CS rosters as being in the 25th Virginia Militia during the Civil War. No other Treakles are listed – this may be the same person.) Upper Cedar Point Lighthouse was constructed in 1867 as a square screwpile lighthouse, located 2 miles west of Mathias Point on the Potomac River. The light station was deactivated in 1876 when Mathias Point Shoal light was constructed but, after numerous complaints, the light was reactivated in 1882 and remained operational until 1963. Document measures 6 ¾” x 9 ¼” and is clean and strong save one light stain. This rare document of Light-House Board Chairman Shubrick would be perfect framed. (VG). $245.

21391. Roberts, Norma Elizabeth and Bruce. CAPE HENRY - First United States Lighthouse - First Landing. 2001. 20p. Soft wraps. This well-researched booklet tells the history of the 1792 old Cape Henry Lighthouse and the first landing of the Jamestown colonists at Cape Henry.

In a U.S. Coast Guard ceremony here in August 1939, Commander Waesche announced the merger of the coast guard and lighthouse service. As you would expect from these well known authors, this booklet is accompanied by wonderful archival photos and a detailed text. (M). $4.95.

  

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. 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 Del aware , Maryland and Virginia . The author’s research involved the United St ates Life-Saving Service in the area, which preceded the U.S. Coast Guard. Wrecks from 1875 to 1914 are featured along with rare photographs of the life-saving stations, surfmen and shipwrecks. 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. Superb rare early photos illustrate the many stations and wreck scenes and extensive tex t tell the tale. A valuable addition to your library. Long out of print and quite difficult to find. (VG+).  $58.

29227. (photo) First-Order Lighthouse Lens From The Hog Island Lighthouse c.1950. This first-order lens is pictured while on loan to the Mariners Museum in the 1950’s. The lens, the second largest lighthouse lens in the United States stands 10 feet tall and weighs 2,500 pounds. 368 prisms make up the reflective body of the lens. The first Hog Island Lighthouse was built in 1852 on what was the southern end of Hog Island, the northern most part of the natural barrier islands between the Virginia’s Eastern Shore and the Atlantic Ocean. By the 1920s the ocean had eroded much of the island and in the 1930’s a hurricane claimed even more of the land. The 10-foot high lens, a first order produced by the Henry-LePaute company in France, was removed from the lighthouse before the final destruction of the facility in 1948.  The land the lighthouse stood on is now underwater. The southern end of the island is no higher than 12 feet now. Now only an abandoned Coast Guard station and a watchtower remain. Today the lens is preserved in a beautiful exhibit pavilion in downtown Portsmouth, Virginia. Photo is b/w, measuring 5 ½” x 9 ½”. Clean, clear, great image. (VG+). $54.

Created as navigational tools, lighthouses are of interest to more than mariners; the ruggedly romantic nature of the beacons delights and enthralls thousand of admirers. Lights along the Virginia coast are no exception. From the richly historic Old Cape Henry Light, authorized by President George Washington in 1789, to the candy-striped Assateague Light on the state’s Eastern Shore, lights along the Virginia shore enthrall thousand of admirers. Of equal interest are the tales of the men of the United States Life-Saving Service, the forerunner of today’s Coast Guard.

29371. Murphy, Mary. Preservation Values in the United States: A Case Study of Three Lighthouses. Masters Thesis. Texas Tech University. 2007. 142p. This study is an analysis of the preservation values evident in three historic lighthouses: The Roanoke River Lighthouse in Plymouth, North Carolina; the Old Plantation Flats Lighthouse in Cape Charles, Virginia; and the Old Roanoke River Lighthouse in Edenton, North Carolina. These three lighthouses are compared and analyzed according to the preservation values set forth by Austrian historian Alois Riegl in his essay "The Meaning of Monuments and Their Historical Development" and the values implied in the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. This study serves four purposes: First, this study establishes the relationship between Riegl's preservation theory and the current preservation guidelines in the United States. Second, this study presents the histories and current conditions of three related historic lighthouses together in a single work. Third, this study makes a recommendation of treatment for the Roanoke River Lighthouse in Edenton based on Riegl's preservation theory. Fourth, this study concludes with a summary regarding the current state of preservation theory in the United States, and of lighthouse preservation in particular. Filled with photographs, drawings and illustrations. Worthwhile reading, and an interesting source of reference for those interested in similar restorations.
