Good to see a new edition out of this book. Mine is a very dog eared version but with great quality photographs. Does the Shellback Library have good repoductions of the photo's?

I ordered three Shellback books recently, I think I mentioned one was "Swin, Swale & Swatchway", 1892, by H Lewis Jones, and mentioned by MG as an influence on his own MOTS's. I also got FB Cooke's "In Tidal Waters", although I had an original, and another about a boat called Seabird by the editor of the Rudder. Whilst it's good these books are available again, they are done a little bit cheaply (reproduction of illustrations, binding) but still good to have.

Old Books reprinted..

I have been loaned a copy of 'In tidal waters', and am reading it now, very much of a different era, but can see how it must have influenced MG!

Great that these books are being reprinted, pictures as well!
