Young Sea Officers Sheet Anchor 2ND Edition 1819by Darcy Lever
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
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.
Book News Annotation:
A new introduction accompanies this handbook, which first appeared in 1808 and was later expanded for the general use of young officers in the Royal Navy and East India Company. Coverage includes the principles of rigging, tacking, use of a compass, the art of swinging a ship at single anchor, and casting. Detailed drawings and a dictionary of sea terms are included. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
