Professional Recollections of Points of Seamanship, Discipline, &c.

by Captain Francis Liardet.

Portsea, William Woodward, 1849.

8vo. 1st edition. pp[6], viii, [2], 317 + single-page printed testimonial for Capt. Liardet’s Signal Balls from Rear-Admiral Hyde Parker, and single-page publisher’s list.

staining to foot of end-papers, otherwise a good clean copy inthe original blind decorated and gilt lettered green cloth, a bit worn and rubbed at the spine

Captain Liardet entered the navy in 1809 and pursued a successful and noteworthy career, brought to an end by an accident with a field gun in which he lost his sight. This instructional volume was written for the benefit of Royal Navy midshipmen, in particular the author’s step-son, but is based very much on Liardet’s experiences with many recollections from his own naval career
