Product description

Sailing Craft: Mostly descriptive of smaller pleasure sail boats of the day.
Edited by Edwin J. Schoettle.
With an introduction by A. Edward Newton.
Embodying writings of well known sailors.
Drawings by Harry Parker.

With illustrations, photography and diagrams of sailing craft.

From the editor's preface:-
The title of this book must be understood to have something of a double meaning. The book, first of all, presents descriptions of well-known classes of racing boats of the present day-principally the United States, Canada and England-but it aims also to touch lightly upon the science (or craft) of the sailor.Considerable attention, too, is given to the various bodies of water where racing and cruising are popular, and to other subjects which, it is hoped, will be of interest not only top yachtsmen but to all who respond to the call of the sea.

CONDITION: Minor wear to green boards with some tanning. Ex-libris plate stuck on inside front board. Top page edge foxed with minor browning to other outside edges. Pages inside are clean and bright with no inscriptions or notations. (See photos for details)
