Or a Key to the Leading of Rigging and to Practical Seamanship

The classic book by Darcy Lever.

Widely used among young 19th-century officers in the Royal Navy and East India Company, this now-rare volume offers clear definitions and copious illustrations of the principles of rigging and other aspects of seamanship — tacking, use of a compass, splicing ropes, making sails, and much more. A must for ship fanciers and naval historians.

Reprint of the John Richardson. London, 1819 second edition.
