The Influence of Sea Power Upon History 1660 - 1783 - MAHAN, Captain A. T.

Sampson Low Marston & Co., 1890, Hardback ..
Condition: Very Good. A little bruised at head and tail, very lightly rubbed the tips of the boards. Discrete previous owners inscription to title page. Foredges faded and somewhat rubbed where they are rough trimmed. Text bright and clean. A nice copy.

Blue cloth with gilt titling to spine, gilt illustration of warship to upper board. B&W plates throughout. The definite object proposed in this work is an examination of the general history of Europe and America with particular reference to the effect of sea power upon the course of that history. Historians generally have been unfamiliar with the conditions of the sea, having as to it neither special interest nor special knowledge, and the profound determining influence of maritime strength upon great issues has consequently been overlooked. 557pp. Index.
