Here is the compelling story of Americans who went down to the sea (and inland waters) in ships, their life at home, their life aboard ships, and their life in faraway lands. Ships discovered this country and ships, in large part, have made possible its greatness. They have played a major part in every phase of our growth. In wars they have provided the bridge for victory and freedom. In peace, they have been and are the means of discovery, expansion, and friendly commerce. This is an entertaining, informal account, in pictures and text, of maritime America from the Indian canoe to the blue-ribbon liners, covering everything that has anything to do with water craft--high seas and inland--and the men who made such craft important.--From publisher description

Johann Sebastian Bach as his world knew him by Otto Bettmann( Book )
5 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Czech and held by 575 libraries worldwide
Bach, the "holy cantor" church musician, has been often described in books. But the real Bach, the "eminently astute manager of his life," is frequently buried in endless, uninteresting detail. In contrast, Dr. Otto Bettmann's new book, Johann Sebastian Bach: As His World Knew Him, shows Bach with all his human qualities: the capable management of his vast family - two wives and twenty children - Bach's humor, his considerable business acumen, the all too human touches of eroticism, even his attitude toward death. With illustrations throughout and organized as an A to Z compendium of Bach's life and his glorious music, this book covers every significant subject about the master, including his faith and secretiveness, his interests in numerology and calligraphy, his roles as cantor and capellmeister, and more. Bettmann explains why for nearly eighty years after the death of the world's greatest composer, Bach sank into oblivion
