(vi), iv + viii + 472 + iiipp, 15 large folding plans, teg, large formatū(25cm x 21cm), coloured endpapers, attractive production, half calf withūmarbled paper over boards, a good clean copy. Catalogue of Books on Naval Architecture, European Magazine, 1792: Thisūbook contains dimensions of the ships of the Royal Navy, very exact, withūsome judicious remarks on their property and an exact draught of an eightyūgun ship. The author intended adding a draught of each class. He wasūbrought up in a Royal Yard, was very industrious; but was discharged forūcopying draughts, and having papers in his possession.ūSuch is the jealous infatuation that the superior officer in ourūestablishment does not wish any workmen to be possessed of more knowledgeūthan to handle and know the use of his tools; this is done under theūpretence of secrecy, in keeping our arts from our enemies; which pretenceūis carried so far as to exclude a Briton admittance without especialūorders and porter to attend him, while foreigners of any nation, ifūcloathed in an officers uniform, find ready admittance.ūAJS: This is the limited edition issue in attractive half calf.
