1 Kubeck, James The Calendar Epic (The Novel of the Merchant Marine)
New York G.P. Putnam's Son's 1956 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good- dust jacket 


Spine slightly slanted, corners bumped. DJ shows some edgewear, 2 spots on spine, tiny tears at top and bottom of spine and flap edges. Text is clean and attractive.

"This is a novel of the sea and of a ship, the Calendar Epic, and her first and final voyage in the dark war years when, if a merchantmen completed one mission, she was considered to have fulfilled her purpose. The glory went to those who met the enemy in battle, but the tensions and strains fell just as strongly on the men who delivered the machines of war in tens of hundreds of cargo vessels-and if they went down with their ship, well, that was their job. It is the story of all of them, from veteran Captain Quinn, a company man for so many years that he could no longer put his men or his ship herself above the good of the company, down to Jerry Pegram, the young cadet who had fled a college campus to escape his mother's apron strings."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
