15,000 miles in a ketch

£19.99

Product description

Since Francis Drake went round the world there has perhaps been no voyage quite so venturesome as that in a little French fishing ketch, of forty-five tons, called the J. B Charcot, which set out from Boulogne in September of the year 1907, and, sailing across the South Atlantic and the Antarctic and Indian seas, lay to outside Melborne Harbour in July 1908 - a distance of 15,000 miles.
This is the story of that remarkable trip.

Hard back book. No dust jacket. The cover is warped so it does not lie square (see picture). There is rubbing over the cover and along the edges of the spine. There is an award label inside the front cover and a name printed opposite (pictured). The award label states 'Davenham Boys Bible Class 1936' The binding is good and the pages are clean and intact.
