A Dictionary of Sea Terms for the Use of Yachtsmen, Amateur Boatmen, and Beginners
Despite its title, this illustrated dictionary from 1898 is really for anyone with a keen interest in ships and maritime history. There is much to learn from it. "True maritime terms," notes the author in his Preface, "may generally be traced back to very simple derivations. To understand the derivation of a word is to understand it in its fullest meaning. For this reason, wherever the origin of an expression is known, I have taken the opportunity of inserting it." (19.3 MiB, PDF, 352 pages)
