WWII. ROYAL NAVY. ADMIRALTY.: Manual of Seamanship 1937. By Authority of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty. Volume One [only]. [?Fourth Impression]. REMARKABLY BRIGHT, CLEAN COPY OF THE STANDARD WWII EDITION
HMSO, 1938 (reprinted 1942) 8vo., ?Fourth Impression, with 26 coloured plates, 15 plates in monochrome, very numerous illustrations and diagrams (many full-page) in the text and 2 large folding plans; original navy blue cloth, upper board blocked in blind, gilt back, an unusually uniform, bright, clean copy. With front and rear trade advertisement endpapers. The 1937 edition of the 'pusser's bible' was the first major revision since 1932. First issued in 1938, it was reprinted each year until 1943 (though curiously we have been unable to confirm a 1939 issue). All reprints are very slightly abridged (mostly in terms of illustration; in particular the expensive plate overlays of the first impression were quickly abandoned with the outbreak of hostilities). Well produced and exceptionally well illustrated, it was in common use with officers and ratings alike (unlike its sister the Manual of Navigation), and there is a fair argument for its being today the most evocative Royal Navy publication of the war years. Very nice copy of the standard WWII edition. (Book ref. 18890) £30.00
