Yarns of the Seven Seas - CAMPBELL, Commander A B

Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons Ltd Paperback, 0, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. No Dust Jacket

Mysteries and stirring tales of adventure at sea, told in Commander Campbell's usual vigorous style, and including a ghost story and also a fascinating solution to the Marie Celeste mystery. A book to appeal to all boys and girls of eleven upward - and many of the grown-ups will be reading it themselves before passing it on to the younger generation. A stirring tribute to the men of the sea, in both the Navy and the Merchant Service, and a book to intrigue all those who are curious about the ship's bells, why there is a Dog Watch, old ceremonies at sea such as 'Working the Dead Horse,' and above all the Yarns that seamen spin in the Dog Watch. Few men have a memory like Commander Campbell's, and few have his capacity for telling again the yarns that have aroused the curiosity and admiration of seamen all over the world.
