A Dictionary of Sea Terms (1919)
Read Books Ltd, 16 Apr 2013 - 340 halaman
This vintage book is an exhaustive and profusely illustrated dictionary of nineteenth- and eighteen-century nautical terminology. “A Dictionary of Sea Terms” will appeal to those with an interest in sailing, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Many old books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on sailing.
