'Willynilly' to the Baltic

£24.99

Product description

William Blackwood & Sons Ltd., London, 1965, First edition. Hardback bound in blue cloth with title in gilt on spine; 8vo., [ix] 278 pp, with maps on endpapers and illustrated with 7 charts and 39 photographs; illustrated D/J. Book condition: Good, slight browning on edges of text block, no inscriptions. D/J condition: Fair, worn at the folds, chipping to top and bottom edges, not price clipped; now in removable plastic sleeve. When John Seymour saw a fleet of Yorkshire cobles running in from the sea, he decided that willy-nilly he must own one. Being a man who thinks that the Battle of Hastings was won by the wrong side, he decided to sail to Friesland, Schleswig-Holstein and Jutland and see where our real ancestors came from. Throughout the story John Seymour closely observes - and gives his forthright views on - the fishing and farming practices, most of them good but some of them otherwise, of our North Sea neighbours. This is a book for those who have a taste for adventure and a love of the sea.
