On offer is a super group of eight [8] original Seal Island Nova Scotia log books with handwritten notes and data of the lighthouse and fog alarm operation by John Crowell and E.A. Hamilton, Lighthouse keepers, Engineers and the Fog Alarm Station attendants through the 1920s. These folio sized logs are unusual manuscript relics of a notorious and capricious geographic hot spot for shipwrecks in the Maritimes of Canada. Seal Island has been the place of destruction for 215+ ships that came ashore on it's ledges around the island since 1787. Some covers a bit rough around the edges, but overall in good condition. The books each have a purpose: Fog Alarm Station [2 books], Return of Stores, Diary of Lightkeeper, Diary of Engineer [2] and Lighthouse Service [2] with dates ranging from 1901 to 1935 making for a treasure trove of historical data and personal observations of this fascinating Island. The books have some chipping and rubbing to the extremities some general ageing but overall G.
