The Grey Seas Under

Farley Mowat fan?  Tugboat fan?  The Grey Seas Under is Mowat’s non-fictional account of Foundation Franklin, a salvage tug.  We’ve just received an autographed copy of a second edition (1958).  Sadly, our copy is without a dust jacket.  Other than being naked, the book is in very good condition.  There’s a slight crease at the top of the spine, but everything else is pretty clean.

Though it’s just I guess, I believe the thing under his signature reads “1958”.  There’s no dedication–but I wouldn’t think we’d be given one of the author’s own books: it must have been one of those generic signing events.

To see the book, come visit us at Mississauga Central Library on Wednesday and Saturday mornings, or send us an email (sales@folmississauga.ca).
