Book Description Hollis & Carter, London, 1956. Hardback. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First edition. Hollis & Carter, London, 1956. First edition. Book condition: good. A little wear to boards and some light dust soiling to text block edges. Previous owner's name to ffep. Two offset stains to ffep and to rfep due to selotape being used to hold a plastic sleeve for the dust jacket in place. (We have removed this plastic sleeve and replaced with ne requiring no tape). Internally clean. Some faint tanning to endpapers. Dust jacket: good. Unclipped. A little edge wear and generally lightly soiled. Corners and extremities of spine a little chipped. Spine slightly faded. In this book the haven-finding art is traced from its first crudities and dangers, through one line of invention or line of advance after another, until at last mathematical precision was reached. As the centuries passed, so leadership in navigational skills passed from one nation to another - from Phoenicians to Greeks; from Greeks to Italians, from Italians to Portuguese and Spaniards. And from these last in the days of Elizabeth I to the English, with whom the author argues it rested at the time of writing. Hardback. Bookseller Inventory # 1304999
