About this Item

London, 1696. 8vo, original boards with crude tape on spine, viii, 232 pp. Illustrated with nine engraved plates, eight folding. Title continues: With Full and Correct Tables of the Dimensions and Quantities of Every Part of the Rigging of All Ships and Vessels. Particularly Useful to Boatswains. The exceedingly scarce first edition of David Steel's important early title on rigging. A fair copy in its original boards, with complete contents showing some intermittent foxing and dampstaining but remaining fairly bright despite the flaws. We have chosen to leave the binding intact to preserved restoration options for the buyer. OCLC 3500865, locating eight copies. Please contact us for additional pictures or information.
