Endeavour: The Ship That Changed the
"An immense treasure trove of fact-filled and highly readable fun.” --Simon Winchester, The New York Times Book ReviewA Sunday Times (U.K.) Best Book of 2018 and Winner of the Mary Soames Award for HistoryAn unprecedented history of the storied ship that Darwin said helped add a hemisphere to the civilized worldThe Enlightenment was an age of endeavors, with Britain consumed by the impulse for grand projects undertaken at speed. Endeavour was also the name given to a collier bought by the Royal Navy in 1768. It was a commonplace coal-carrying vessel that no one could have guessed would go on to become the most significant ship in the chronicle of British exploration. The first history of its kind, Peter Moore’s Endeavour: The Ship That Changed the World is a revealing and comprehensive account of the storied ship’s role in shaping the Western world. Endeavour famously carried James Cook on his first major voyage, charting for the first time New Zealand and the eastern coast of Australia. Yet it was a ship with many lives: During the battles for control of New York in 1776, she witnessed the bloody birth of the republic. As well as carrying botanists, a Polynesian priest, and the remains of the first kangaroo to arrive in Britain, she transported Newcastle coal and Hessian s...

Enterprise to Endeavour: The J-Class Yachts
Enterprise to Endeavour: The J-Class
Only ten J-Class yachts were ever built and they raced for the America's Cup and other trophies in British and American Waters for a mere eight seasons between 1930 and 1937. There have been many yachts that have been larger, and still others that have been faster, but no one sailing class has ever gripped the imagination of the public at large as much as the Js did. They were unique for their combination of size and speed, and they completely dominated the yachting scene on both sides of the Atlantic before their fantastic cost, and the introduction of income tax and the approach of the Second World War banished them for ever.Astra, Britannia, Shamrock V, Endeavour, Enterprise, Yankee, Rainbow, Ranger...their very names conjure up an era of wealthy amateur owners, of splendour, beauty and expense which has disappeared for ever. In this wonderful tribute Ian Dear tells the story of an eventful decade, and recaptures with a series of superb pictures the elegance of that bygone yachting scene and the whole flavour of its social background. And in the final chapters of this new edition he recounts in words and photographs the tremendous revival of interest in these great yachts, and the restoration of nearly all those which have survived.
