9780957672826: Seafaring - The Full Story
Críticas:

The Spectator - 20th November 1926 "ALTHOUGH large sailing ships - at all events British sailing ships - have almost disappeared from the seas it seems that the memory of the great days will not be allowed to fail. There is a regular flow of books, mostly by men well advanced in life, describing the sea-faring life under sail. This flow cannot last long, for the young seamen of to-day are for the most part trained from boyhood in steamships. It is desirable, therefore, to give every kind of encouragement to the old shellbacks who write their reminiscences; what they say, simple though it may be, is the matter of history. It is a strange fact that the great sailing ships were never so majestic and were never better handled than in the few years immediately before their disappearance. Most of the authors of reminiscences to-day can remember the grandeur of the clipper days, when ships like the 'Cutty Sark' and the 'Thermopylae' did voyages round the world marvellous for their sustained speed. There are now only four deep-sea square-rigged ships on the British register. Captain George P. Boughton tells in his Sea-Faring (Faber and Gwyer, 15s. net) some truths about those who follow the profession of the sea which are not often told by seamen themselves. The men of the deep-water sailing ships had a gaiety that was unmatched in any other occupation. They somehow compensated themselves for all the hardship and danger. Only men of great simplicity of mind could have done that. They were simple in their respect for authority and also in their religious convictions - we need not say piety - which were apparently the result of being constantly in the presence of immense natural forces. Many readers of Typhoon must-have felt, as the present writer did, that when Conrad had described in a hundred different ways the same phenomenon of a large sea crashing along the vessel from end to end, they had a sense of physical exhaustion, and indeed the worse sense of having been pommelled and bruised. But the master of the ship, when he returned to his home and was asked by his wife what kind of voyage he had had, replied tersely, "dirty weather". The mind of a seaman, it appears, dwells little upon incidents, however trying and perilous, which must be expected in the nature of his calling. St. Paul, not being a sailor; was evidently absorbed in the efforts made to save the ship in which he was wrecked; but if the truth were known it would probably be found that the sailors themselves soon forgot all that and remembered only the viper which fastened upon St. Paul's hand after the landing. The merit of Captain Boughton's book is that in depicting typical scenes of sea-life he has recalled emotions that have fleeted from the minds of most men with similar experience."

Críticas:

Times Literary Supplement: "His [Boughton's] book is genuine sea salt - warm colours of Mr [Kenneth] Shoesmith's pictures accord well with the romantic story" of days before steamships. ~ John O'London Weekly: "An excellent book". ~ Lloyds List & Shipping Gazette: "one of the best books on life at sea that have been published for many a day". ~ The Spectator: "recalls emotions [on sea-life] that have fleeted from the minds of most". ~ The Traveller's Gazette, Thomas Cook: "All will read the pages of 'Seafaring' with unalloyed pleasure". ~ Blue Peter Journal, AT Stewart Commander Royal Navy: "This book is stamped with the personality of a thorough seaman, the sea-breezes [and chanties] stir in its pages".

Descripción GB Publishing.org. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Paperback. 310 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.7in.Here is a book for sailors and for all who love the sea, written and illustrated by sailors. Seafaring deals with ships and life aboard ships in the days before steam had completely conquered sail. Though these days are fast receding from memory there are still many men who spent the best part of their lives on sailing vessels. Captain Boughton was one of those. The salt of the sea is in these breezy pages; they reflect the virile enjoyment with which the men of whom Captain Boughton writes faced the hardships of their existence. The inclusion of several of the traditional sea chanties, together with the music, and the end-papers of sailors knots (designed by Mr. Norman Tealby) add the final flavour to an inspiring book. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Nº de ref. de la librería 9780957672826
