Hampton, New Hampshire: Portsmouth Marine Society, 1982. Hardcover. VG- (DJ is lightly worn or aged.). Blue cloth, gilt letters on spine & front cover, white & illus. dust jacket, 103 pp., 60+ BW illus. The first detailed biography of John Haley Bellamy (1836-1914), best known for his hanging wall eagle, often copied by contemporary carvers. "In addition to various types of eagles, Bellamy produced other animals, furniture, decorative pieces for ships and Masonic frames and clock cases. He held patents on many carved pieces and even on such devices as rowlocks." (DJ) But he wasn't good when it came to business, and he eventually suffered from alcoholism. "Family papers and correspondence once thought lost, have been recovered in the last decade making this book possible and revealing aspects of Bellamy's life that have puzzled and confused other authors." (DJ).
