Thames & Hudson, 1975, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.

Illustrated. From the cover: “This is a story with a multiplicity of elements — extraordinary ships; epic battles; remarkable men (administrators and explorers, no less than admirals); and the ordinary sailor too — how he lived, why he went to sea, what it was really like to serve on the lower deck. Indiscipline, ill-management, injustice and defeat are part of Mr Warner's account; but so too are bravery and courage and success, seen with especial effect in a magnificent collection of illustrations.”
