About the Book

Bibliographic Details


Publisher: c. 1950

Publication Date: 1950

Binding: Hardcover

Dust Jacket Condition: Dust Jacket Included


Cloth-covered boards, in a hand-made dust jacket with sewn flaps (creates a nice folder, or pocket, on the interior) and "BOATSWAIN" handwritten on front cover; 9 x 15 inches. Approx. pp. 300, with handwritten notes and drawings, as well as tipped-on dittos, photocopies, and pamphlets. Mid- to late-1950s. All the details and duties of the Boatswain from steel-wire rope and deck cranes to fire precautions, anchoring, and towage carefully recorded in ink by one hand throughout, with the occasional tipped- or laid-in supplement. Also includes hand-drawn and colored diagrams, illustrations, and tables. Only about half of the pages are left blank. The rest are exceptionally clear, tidy, legible, and organized, with nary a scratch-out, doodle, or aside to be found! A few spots of soiling on dust jacket, a few pages wrinkled from the adhesive, but otherwise tight and clean. Bookseller Inventory # D2007
