Item# 2510

This is a detailed account of the War of 1812 as it was conducted on the waters of Chesapeake Bay.  The author traces the abuses of the inhabitants of the Chesapeake Bay by Royal Navy raiding parties under arrogant Rear Admiral George Cockburn. Cockburn’s burning and pillaging of bay communities proceeded the burning of our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., on August 24-25, 1814.  Cockburn persuaded Ross that the Americans could not stand up to Lord Wellington’s Peninsular War veterans. But he miscalculated when it came to attacking Baltimore, where citizen soldiers, strongly led by Revolutionary War veterans General Samuel Smith and John Stricker, and backed by U.S. Navy regulars, held the British at bay, killing Ross and reclaiming American pride.

The 286 digitally restored black and white photographs are divided into five Maryland areas:  Baltimore and surrounds, Chesapeake Bay, Eastern Shore, Southern Maryland and Annapolis, and Western Maryland.  These photographs have been gathered from Bodine's personal collection as well as the archives of the Baltimore Sunpapers.  Editor Jennifer Bodine, the photographer's daughter, has used essays and photo captions from Bodine's earlier books, where appropriate, to convey Bodine's unique observations and his own words.

Bodine's City Photography Book
Hard cover - 154 photographs
Item# 2424

This large, coffee table style book contains the photography of A. Aubrey Bodine and is published by his daughter, Jennifer B. Bodine.  This is an incredibly high quality volume. Printed in tri-tone (meaning three shades of black) and using a stochastic pattern, this process is similar to the one used to produce reprints of Bodine's images.

Mr. Bodine was a Baltimore Sunday Sun feature photographer for 43 years. The 154 images displayed here were shot within a four mile radius of where he lived or worked. The subject matter of these powerful images is exclusively Baltimore, and yet this is not a Baltimore picture book. The reason these photos transcend their geographical bounds is that Bodine’s subject matter varied wildly, demonstrating the versatility of Bodine as an artist. Bodine is called a pictorialist, but he is much more than that one defining label. He photographed people, animals, buildings, harsh weather conditions, textures, geometric patterns, and cityscapes, devoting his life to elevating photography to an art form. He was famous for his dark room magic. Changes to any photograph occurred in the darkroom and they were all done by hand. Open these pages and enter into the magic that is Bodine’s photography.

Catch Me If You Can Book
Hard cover - 32 pages - By Judy Brunk
Item# 2321

Catch Me If You Can is the story of Pinky, the Sea-Wise Crab.  Of the tens of thousands of crabs handled by the author, Judy Brunk, Pinky was unique.  Unlike all the others, he never tried to pinch her.  This is the story of how Pinky manages to outwit all the watermen and other natural predators as he grows to a full size Jimmy crab with no missing fins or claws.  Sometimes he escapes with sheer luck!

The author Judy Brunk, and her husband, have been shedding crabs along the waters of the Chesapeake Bay for more than 27 years.  Shedding is the practice of harvesting soft crabs.

Quote from Whitey Schmidt, Blue Crab Guru: "Judy Brunk has combined fact, fun and fiction to tell an enchanting tale of a sea-wise crab that informs and delights readers. Judy's book is filled with fascinating and little known facts that will cause crab lovers to rejoice."
