BRAND NEW UNREAD COPT - SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR on the title page. From the publisher:"This is the remarkable story of Captain Melville Henry Bloomer and the cable ships he commanded. The Lord Kelvin participated in the repair of cables damaged by the great seaquake of 1929 and the five year expedition to develop an undersea plough to bury cables in the ocean bed. That project is considered one of the greatest marine accomplishments of all times. The Minia was one of the ships that rescued Titanic survivors. Complemented by nearly 150 photos and drawings."
