Easton, PA The Northampton County Historical and Genealogical Society 1953 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
We provide delivery tracking to all US orders. Like most of the eastern half of Pennsylvania, Northampton County’s history is directly tied to William Penn. Penn received his famous land grant from King Charles II – named Pennsylvania (Penn’s Woods) by the king himself – as the settlement of a debt owed his late Father, Admiral Penn, in March 1681. Historians record that this land we now call Northampton County was settled primarily by immigrants who brought their religions with them, and that the observance of these various religions was first and foremost in their lives.“The Lutherans upon the Lower Lehigh, the Mennonites, the Dunkers, Schwenckfelders, and Reformers, who entered the southwestern townships; the Presbyterians; the refugee Huguenots and Armenians who re-occupied the abandoned lands and orchards of the Hollanders; and last, but not least, the Moravians, who settled at Nazareth and Bethlehem, in 1740 and 1742; each and all set up God's altar in their wilderness homes, and made His worship their first duty and their chief delight.”; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 328 pages

Dorrance Pub Co 2002 0805954171 / 9780805954173 First Edition; First Impression Paperback Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Signed by both authors. The extraordinary life of Captain Charles N. Bamforth spanned most of the twentieth century, beginning with his childhood at the turn of the century and continuing through his retirement and death during the Cold War era. During his sixty years at sea, Captain Bamforth experienced the Depression, two World Wars, and a number of troublesome labor disputes. Through it all, he also had to navigate loneliness, confusion, and marriage to both his family and the sea. His story is told in meticulous detail and with refreshing honesty. Captain Bamforths handwritten diaries, logs, and personal letters all have been carefully compiled by his sons, Charles and Richard, and reveal as much about the hard-working, unassuming courage of the captain as they do about the turbulent times during which he lived. Rare. ; 1.2 x 8.8 x 6 Inches; 436 pages; p; Signed by All Authors

The End of the War  Singapore's Liberation and the Aftermath of the Second World War, Bose, Romen
17 Bose, Romen The End of the War Singapore's Liberation and the Aftermath of the Second World War
Marshall Cavendish Editions 2005 9812610669 / 9789812610669 First Edition Paperback Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Book looks new. Where there are victors, there are also the defeated. As the Second World War comes to a close in Southeast Asia, the Japanese military forces in the region must face up to the fact that the British will soon return to reoccupy their colonies. The British, on the other hand, have to quickly organise the reoccupation of their former colonies, focusing on Singapore and Malaya. Surprised by the abrupt surrender of their enemies, planning is put into high gear. Meanwhile, prisoners of war and the general population in Malaya and Singapore, having suffered greatly under the Japanese, wait impatiently for the moment when they can once again breathe free. In the midst of this, chaos looms and racial tensions build, ready to erupt. Journeying to the past, this book unravels the intricate details of the culminating events in the history of the end of the war in Malaya and Singapore. Based on research gleaned from the classified documents only recently made public in the UK, an unprecedented exposition unfolds the events that went on behind the scenes as the British prepared to return to the region to reestablish their authority. With a cast of historical characters ranging from the great and powerful General Itagaki to the less well-known but no less significant members of the espionage Force 136, the events leading up to and following the official Japanese surrender in Southeast Asia is captured in remarkable detail here in one volume as The End of the War: Singapore’s Liberation and the Aftermath of the Second World War.; 0.5 x 8.1 x 5.8 Inches; 211 pages
