About this Item

287 pages, illustrated in color and b&w. "Over the years, Welles Henderson, the author of this intriguing book, noted that the majority of maritime museums throughout the world placed their emphasis on ship paintings, ship models, figureheads, navigation equipment, nautical tools and weapons but gave little insight into the daily life of the ordinary sailor. For over four decades, therefore, he has been collecting material in an attempt to fill the gap. This book is richly illustrated in color, with material taken for the extensive Henderson Collection, and includes many items never before publicly displayed or published." FINE HARDCOVER, FINE DUST JACKET, signed by author J. Welles Henderson. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 025634

About this title


Book by Henderson, J. Welles, Carlisle, Rodney P.

From Library Journal:

Henderson, founder of Philadelphia's Maritime Museum, is a renowned collector of items relating to the sea and the life of sailors. This beautifully illustrated book paints a realistic picture of the everyday life of the ordinary seaman in the American and British navies from 1750 to 1910 through manuscripts, journals, diaries, logs, books, ceramics, textiles, metals, ship models, and photography. Each chapter deals with a different aspect of the seagoing life. But although this unique, fascinating work fills an existing scholarly gap, its subject matter and price will probably restrict its purchase to libraries with strong collections of naval history.
