The Sea

The sea

Many of our customers gravitate straight towards this section. Some of them are old sea-dogs, while others. who grew up in the nearby maritime communities of Courtown or Arklow, have a lifetime fascination with the lore of the sea.

Here we keep our books on yachting and our books on ocean liners; our memoirs of brave voyages into the unknown and our accounts of Atlantic crossings. The fictional tales of W W Jacobs and the true ones of Thor Heyerdahl and Tim Severin jostle with histories of the Titanic and the Lusitania, and illustrated catalogues of shipping deployed both in peacetime and in wars.

And we display our volumes on Canals and Rivers in this section too – largely because they are essentially wet.

Phone or email to inquire about, reserve or order any titles.
