The Log of The 'Cutty Sark'

£5.99

Product description

A history of the famous tea and wool clipper, Cutty Sark, the most interesting sailing ship, considered to have been the fastest of all the clippers. The book is compiled from her log books, her captains' abstracts and information received from those who served aboard her, and from those who served aboard her rivals, or were connected with her in some other way.

The book is in fair condition, there is an inscription on the first free end paper ' To D.Y. age 2 - 12/9/1970 from Y + B.' There is also a pencil marking of £20 and the original price of the book in the inside of the dust cover has been neatly covered over in pen. The top outer corner of the first few pages are a little brown and the outer edges of all the pages are somewhat discoloured. The top and bottom of the spine is a showing some signs of wear and the dust cover is tired looking and a little torn in places. The inside pages are perfectly clean and legible though and there are some lovely black and white images.
