  • Description


an excellent run of the Humber Yawl Club renowned sailing club journal, including some of the rare very early issues. the collection comprises of a continuous run from the issue for 1891 through to 1961 (excluding the war years 1940 to 1945, when the journal was not issued).  The Club was formed in 1883 by canoeists who had decided that the Humber Estuary conditions required heavier and more seaworthy craft, giving birth to the canoe sterned Humber Yawl design, originally an open boat, but by the begining of the 20th-century, fitted with cabin accommodation. Amongst the early designers was Albert Strange, who also contributed the cover design of many of the early 20th-century year books

all in the original paper covers and generally condition is very good
