About this title


In 1814, the first shipment of cotton piece goods left Lancashire, England, for Calcutta, India, trade that would open the eyes of the West to the riches of Eastern culture. Over the course fo a century, bustling commerce grew up between East and West, carried on the decks and in the holds of great sailing ships and steam-powered vessels. Maxtone-Graham and Marshall bring to life this remarkable era.


As a child, Ian Marshall made his own "passage to India" through the Suez Canal aboard one of the great British luxury liners that carried everyone from military men to ladies' maids to the East. Marshall grew up to be an architect, but his love of the sea and the ships that sailed it never abated; he turned his artistic talents to portraiture, producing two books of maritime watercolors, Armored Ships and Ironclads and Paddlers, which captured exactly the power and majesty of warships. In Passage East, he does it again, this time evoking an era of privilege and class consciousness that vanished along with the Raj. Photographs and sketches illuminate Marshall's text and all work together to make this both a beautiful piece of art and a fascinating work of history. An added bonus is the detailed introductory essay by marine historian John Maxtone-Graham.

ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
