From 1875 to the present day, the Cardiff and Bristol Channel Incorporated Shipowners' Association has been the representative body for shipowners in Cardiff and other Bristol Channel ports. This study looks at some of the most representative periods in its history: the reaction of the Association to the proposal to build new docks in Barry in the 1880s, the Seaman's Strike in 1911, and the schism which split the Association in 1912-14. David Jenkins also reveals that a barrage across the estuary of the rivers Taff and Ely was first proposed as early as 1920. Nothing came of that proposal, but in 1929 a similar scheme was once more under consideration, comprising a dam with two locks across the tidal channel, between Penarth Head and Queen Alexandra lock.

The vast archives of the South Wales Coalfield Collection are a unique asset for researchers and an especially useful tool for medical historians. Until now the medical records contained within the collection have been prohibitively difficult to locate, but Anne Borsay and Sara Brady here present a guide to the collection that highlights all items of medical significance. In addition to helping researchers find their way through the collection, Borsay and Brady establish the historical context for the records by exploring the ways that new legislation, scientific developments, changes in health care management, and changing attitudes to the environment are reflected in the records.

William Sweetland was a Bath organ builder who flourished from c.1847 to 1902 during which time he built about 300 organs. Gordon Curtis places this work of a provincial organ builder in the wider context of English musical life in the latter half of the nineteenth century. He relates the biographical details of Sweetland's family, surveys Sweetland's organ building work and explores the organ recital repertoire of the provinces. The second part of the book consists of a Gazeteer of all known organs by Sweetland.
