  • Confederate Underwater Warfare: An Illustrated History

    Rated 0 out of 5
    $43.55$49.95

    Though the Union Navy held a numerical advantage over its Confederate counterpart, the South’s forces had one weapon that was not readily available to the North–underwater mines, known at the time as torpedoes. More Union ships were destroyed by torpedoes than by all other means combined.

    The South’s superiority in underwater weaponry can be directly traced to the work of an oceanographer named Matthew Fontaine Maury. Recognizing the South’s limited capabilities, Maury persuaded its leaders to develop underwater weapons. This is the first detailed history ever of the South’s development and deployment of both offensive and defensive underwater weaponry. Included are many photographs of actual salvaged Confederate mines.

    The Book of Tea

    Rated 0 out of 5
    $11.99

    by Okakuro Kakuzo

    Foreword by Anita Schafer

    Originally published in 1906, The Book of Tea introduced American and other Western readers to Japanese culture and how tea is an essential component of it. However, the book has a broader message. Okakura deftly makes comparisons between East and West, highlighting each strengths and imperfections. Okakura’s essay also introduces Teaism and appreciation of the aesthetic. The moments of repose while drinking tea offer an insight and a presence hardly found in many activities. The art of the Japanese tea ceremony is outlined and explained in detail. A classic among literary scholars and tea enthusiasts.
