Promotional Information

About the Author

John Harland was born in Belfast, but after his medical training he emigrated to Canada. He never lost his childhood interest in the sea and ships, devoting most of his spare time to their study. He is an active member of the Society for Nautical Research and contributes to its journal The Mariner's Mirror on a wide range of topics. Virtually a life's work, this book has become the standard reference on the subject, proving invaluable to captains and crew of tall ships and maritime historians alike.


One of the most definitive accounts of the remarkable development of seamanship techniques between 1600 and 1860. * Nautilus Telegraph *
