Widely used among young 19th-century officers in the Royal Navy and East India Company, this now-rare volume offers clear definitions and copious illustrations of the principles of rigging and other aspects of seamanship–tacking, use of a compass, splicing ropes, making sails, and much more. A must for ship fanciers and naval historians.
