  • Description


Dixon Kemp’s famous “Manual of Yacht and Boat Sailing” was first published in 1878. The general plan of that first edition was maintained in subsequent editions, but considerable new material was added to each edition reflecting the introduction of new designs, and the changing face of yachting during the final two decades of the 19th century. This is the second edition, and the first to include ‘Canoes’, with an 80-page chapter written by W. Baden-Powell, E.B.Tredwen, and others. complete with the 48 folding plates. for some reason this second edition appears to be rather scarce
