About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Master of the Inland Seas; The Story of Captain Thomas Wilson and the Fleet That Bore His Name by Meakin, Alexander C..

Description:

Nice, clean book which itself is in very good condition. Handsome dark blue boards show no bumps, pages are clean, and there are no names or writing. Jacket is likewise clean with no tears or chips, but shows an odd overall crinkling with no evidence of water damage. Looks quite nice though in brand new mylar cover. Book is illustrated with a full page color tartan of the Clan Gunn of which the Wilson family was a "loyal part" and there is also a two page color spread at frontis of a painting showing a ship bearing the name Thomas Wilson. The text is illustrated throughout with black and white photographs.Captain Thomas Wilson traversed the Great Lakes with the firm that not only bore his name, but which pioneered the use of safety equipment on the Great Lakes. It was founded as a freight-transportation company in 1872 and ultimately launched the Lakes' first steel steamer in 1886. It was also the first to use electric lights (on the Yakima) in 1887, the first on the Lakes to use the gyro-compass in 1924 and the first lake ship to use a radio telephone in 1934. In 1967 it became a division of Litton Industries, Inc. While the emphasis is on Wilson and his company, there is also much info on Great Lakes vessels and shipping. 448 pages.
