About this Item

London: Duckworth, (1955). Octavo, cloth, in a dust wrapper. 223 pages, illustrated. Dust wrapper a little worn, but still a very good copy of the First Edition. Signed by the Author on the half-title page, and with an autograph letter signed by David Bone laid in. Autobiography of this noted captain and shipmaster whose fifty-year career spanned the half-century that witnessed the most amazing changes ever known in the history of ships and the sea. ".In his youth as a brassbounder apprentice he scrambled aloft to fist frozen canvas in a blinding gale off Cape Horn; fifty years later, seamanship meant twirling with his fingertips the magic knobs of a radar screen in the power heated wheelhouse of a great ocean liner." (the Publisher). "Captain Sir David Bone, Commodore Master of the Anchor Line fleet until he retired in 1946, was born at Glasgow in 1874 and went to sea at sixteen in the City of Florence, a full-rigged sailing ship of about 1200 tons. Joining the Anchor Line in 1899, he rose to command transatlantic liners of 17,000 tons and in them engaged in both World Wars." (the Publisher). Bookseller Inventory # 11398
