Lost Ships of the West Country — A Guide to Forgotten Craft from Poole to Gloucester - Martin Langley; Edwina Small;

Adlard Coles, 1989, --- ..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper frayed slightly at the top corners of both panels. Text complete, clean and tight.

Illustrated with black and white photographs & maps. From the cover: “This compelling book tells how the ships whose bones now litter the West Country shoreline came to be abandoned and why — the remains of a trading schooner once owned by the Beatles, a war time motor torpedo boat on which one of the crowned heads of Europe served during the war and the dredger designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel — these are just a few of the hundreds of craft discovered, photographed and described. The book also describes in detail how to reach the remains of Britain's maritime history and is thus invaluable to cruising yachtsmen and marine historian alike. Detailed maps and Ordnance Survey references give the precise locations of all the craft.”
