Thames Sailing Barge — Her Gear and Rigging - Dennis J. Davis

David & Charles, 1977, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges with light tanning and spotting to the flaps. Pages lightly age-tanned at the margins.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Picturesque sailing craft though she was, the Thames barge was primarily a utilitarian load carrier—albeit a very handsome one. Designed to be handled by the smallest possible crew, she owed her long life as a viable coastal trader largely to her characteristic gear and rigging, and it is to this less-well-documented aspect of the Thames sailing barge that this book is mainly devoted.
