Stockwin's Maritime Miscellany by Julian Stockwin.

This hardback book is a signed limited first edition first print with it being published in 2009 by Edbury Press.

It has been hand signed to the title page by Julian Stockwin and this is number 046 of 250 copies printed and signed in this format. The book is also accompanied by a leather bookmark, an information leaflet on how the book came about and a signed promotion card (signed on the back by Julian Stockman)

The book is in fine unread condition - free from damage or markings.

This would make an excellent gift for any sailing enthusiast or book collector alike.

"Lt Cdr Julian Stockwin shares his love and knowledge of the sea in this entertaining collection of maritime stories and little-known trivia. Featuring nautical facts and feats, including superstitions at sea, the history of animals on the waves - until 1975 when all animals were banned from Royal Navy ships - and how the inventor of the umbrella helped man the British Navy, it is packed with informative tales. Focusing on the glory days of tall ships he explores marine myths and unearths the truth behind commonly held beliefs about the sea, such as whether Lord Nelson's body was really pickled in rum to transport it back to England after his death at Trafalgar.Interspersed throughout are salty sayings showing the modern words and phrases that originate from the mariners of old - 'cut of his jib', 'high and dry', 'the coast is clear', 'first rate' and 'slush fund'. Accompanied by nostalgic black and white line drawings "Stockwin's Maritime Miscellany" is a charming giftbook guaranteed to appeal to the sailing enthusiast, but also amuse and inform even the staunchest landlubber"

International buyers welcome.

Please feel free to check out the other books I have listed. I am happy to combine postage if more than one is purchased in order to keep costs down for buyers.
