About this Item: Brown Son and Ferguson, Glasgow, 1954. Hard Cover. Condition: VG. No Jacket. Photos, Plans, Tables (illustrator). Reprint. Any discussion of the days when sail dominated maritime trading brings to mind the clipper ship Cutty Sark. Given the ship's fame it was almost inevitable that noted maritime historian Basil Lubbock would record its glory days, and those less so. To compile the "Log" he consulted many former crew members, other seafarers, researched the ship's logs and those of her counterparts and rivals. He was also able to use photographs from the collection of Captain Woodget, who Lubbock describes as her "best known and most successful commander " His account includes many photographs of the Cutty Sark's contempories. In 1896 the 25 year old ship was sold to a Portugese who had her re-rigged as a barquentine for further trading. In 1922 the old and delapidated ship was purchased by Captain Dowman who restored her original name and the Red Ensign. His foresight was to provide a tangible reminder of the era of the classic clipper ship. First published in 1924 by James Brown and Son with this reprint in 1954 published by Brown Son and Ferguson, 332 pages including seven appendices and index, 50+ b/w illustrations, mainly photos, some art, nine detail plans include three fold-outs, intext tables. Blue hard covers with silver front/spine titles VG , light wear to corners/spine extremities and front hinge, few marks to both boards, former owner name/stamp front pastedown, and top corner FFEP, cracking at gutter half title verso and frontis but front board firmly attached. internally excellent to page 327.At that page a 10 centimetre vertical tear is on the last seven pages to the RFEPand including the index section. Tear located centre lower page edge, but has minimal intrusion to text material. Three of the effected pages are blank sheets. Size: 24.5cm by 19cm. Seller Inventory # 004616

About this Item: Brown & Son Ferguson Ltd.,, Glasgow, 1970. Hardback. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Reprint. THE LOG OF THE "CUTTY SARK" Basil Lubbock. Brown, Son & Ferguson Ltd., Glasgow. 1970 Reprint. 332pp Illustrated Hardback This copy is in fine unmarked condition bound in original blue rexine covered boards The unclipped dustwrapper has some marks and some small nibbles to the hard of the spine otherwise very good, it has now been covered in removable clear mylar protective film. The Cutty Sark is a British clipper ship. Built on the Clyde in 1869 for the Jock Willis shipping line, she was one of the last tea clippers to be built and one of the fastest, coming at the end of a long period of design development which halted as sailing ships gave way to steam propulsion. The opening of the Suez Canal (also in 1869) meant that steam ships now had a much shorter route to China, so Cutty Sark spent only a few years on the tea trade before turning to the trade in wool from Australia, where she held the record time to Britain for ten years. Improvements in steam technology meant that gradually steamships also came to dominate the longer sailing route to Australia and the ship was sold to the Portuguese company Ferreira and Co. in 1895, and renamed Ferreira. She continued as a cargo ship until purchased by retired sea captain Wilfred Dowman in 1922, who used her as a training ship operating from Falmouth, Cornwall. After his death she was transferred to the Thames Nautical Training College, Greenhithe in 1938 where she became an auxiliary cadet training ship alongside HMS Worcester. By 1954 she had ceased to be useful as a cadet ship and was transferred to permanent dry dock at Greenwich, London on public display. Cutty Sark is one of three ships in London on the Core Collection of the National Historic Ships Register (the nautical equivalent of a Grade 1 Listed Building) alongside HMS Belfast and SS Robin. She is one of only three remaining original composite construction (wooden hull on an iron frame) clipper ships from the nineteenth century in part or whole, the others being the City of Adelaide, awaiting transportation to Australia for preservation, and the beached skeleton of Ambassador of 1869 near Punta Arenas, Chile.
