Lively Ghosts

Tales of the Sea and New Zealand

by Olaf Ruhen

Line drawings by Sally and Peter Keep

Minerva, 1964, [First Edition], lightly illustrated with line drawings, hardcover, dustjacket

Very Good Condition, minor edge and shelf wear, minor rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, no inscriptions, dustjacket shows a little edge and shelf wear with some rubbing, bumping, marking and chipping (see photographs)

“… a collection of stories, mostly about the sea, set on and around the rocky coasts of New Zealand.  Giant whales, villainous skippers, stowaways, and the ever-present threat of squall and storm combine to make exciting and varied reading for the armchair sailor.  Mr. Ruhen is an expert; he selects his harpoons and lengths of manila, discusses rigging and engines, identifies fish and sorts of shell and coral, all in a most beguiling way.  This collection is a worthy successor to his highly praised Minerva Reef.”
