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 (
