"From its earliest recorded discoveries the history of the Bay and River Delaware has been as one. Due to this unity the Bay and the River are treated as a unit, as is their history which has a unity that overlays their parts. The River forms the boundaries between Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and between Pennsylvania and New York, while the Bay separates New Jersey from Delaware. At the same time the people of these states meet at the Delaware: its beaches and resorts; its fresh water vacation spots; in its cities and in the normal passing from one side, or from one state to the other. The River itself stretches for 296 miles from its sources to the Bay. In this distance the river differs radically as does its history. The Bay differs from the River, as does its history, yet they are a unit." This book treats the history of the River and Bay from its earliest discovery to the present day (1955) with numerous pictures and text. xi + 244 pages. Book is in GOOD or better condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; edgewear and some chipping. Dust jacket is now in a protective plastic wrapper. Seller Inventory # 001058

Book Description Cornell Maritime Press, Cambridge, MD, 1955. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. ".This pictorial history of the Bay and River, Delaware, reviews the many uses to which these waters have been put and the many ways in which they, in turn, have affected the people who have used them. It is a long, a three hundred mile stretch, from the source to the Capes.The River differs radically above and below the 'falls' at Trenton and so also does the River differ from the Bay. Their history includes not only the changes taking place over a period of time, but also changes affecting only particular parts of the Bay or River.The pictures tell the history." Very well illustrated with black-and-white photographs. xi + 244 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket. Seller Inventory # 007652
