Description

London, Sampson Low, Marston, 1887

folio [37x28cm] ppiv 369 + 73 plates

the very scarce original edition of this important 19th-century American treatise on the design, construction and management of small yachts. this copy has been re-cased in the original brown cloth binding, which is a bit worn at the extremities and rather marked. there is some ‘foxing’, mostly prevalent on the preliminary and end pages, and the edges of some pages are a bit ragged, with a tear atthe foot of one preliminary page. not a pristine copy, but a quite reasonable example of a scarce book
