Manual of Seamanship Vol.1 1915

Published by the Admiralty to help train the next wave for the great war.

HMSO, Lond, 1915.

Pp448, Idx,, Illust, b/w & Colour diagrams, and foldout sections.

Some Light spotting especially on some extremities of pages, one of fold out pages rubbed a little as well.

Very good condition, welcome inspection. Spine strong, great condition of illustrations and photos. A very neat hand written inscription of it's owner former 1st Officer of the Training Ship "Amokura" J.R.Murrell.

So why the high price I hear you ask, I mean I can get one of these delivered for about $120.

Here the thing - this was the manual of J.R.Murrell., who as I noted above was the first officer of the "Amokura" an important training ship in the history of the New Zealand Navy. It's true claim to fame is that the majority of the officers in the navy and the merchant navy in World War two were trained on this ship. Via the methods used by this very manual.

Has the stamps of the ship in the Book, see photo, and it stay in Mr J.R.Murrell possession till his passing.

All in all a very good + edition of this book, well looked after.

Some more books from Mr J.R.Murrell private collection will also be posted soon. Please click here to ask a question
